I have started learning Spanish. I went through four semesters of Spanish in college decades ago. I still remember a spattering of words but cannot understand the spoken word – frustrating because I listen to a lot of Latin music but can’t follow the lyrics.
I’m using Pimsleur. I tried Rosetta Stone but I couldn’t get the software to work, and their customer service was frustratingly ineffective. Pimsleur has been much better. I’m also using the Madrigal’s Key To Spanish and some free web sites of which there are many. Two in particular are Yabla and Que Onda Spanish.
