californiajoy Happy 2012 Everybody :)
I have bought the Italian cds (which I put on my ipod) from Costco. They were a mere $30 instead of the hundreds that Rosetta Stone wants, so we’ll see if they work.
I drive about 2.5 hours a day for my work commute (horrible, I know). If I do the tapes for 30 minutes a day, it’s pretty do-able (I think the whole time would burn me out).
When I studied abroad in Florence, it was really easy to pick up words because that was all I heard all day. Hopefully some of that will come back to me!
