Rosetta stone sucks shit. So does Muzzy. My kid just wanted to listen to the version in his native language and the story was crap. Most educational software marketed for kids and homeschooled teens is a rip off.

Before Rosetta Stone, we had Livemocha.com, where all courses were free, and you could interact with people freely like a social network. I was learning mandarim so I made a friend from China. It was very cool there...

Until Rosetta Stone bought Livemocha and made most content unavailable unless you paid for a premium account. It was a total disaster, of course, so Livemocha died. Fuck Rosetta Stone.
