Merid
Spanish
Mandarin

Although I was trying to learn Cantonese at one point since I had two roommates in college, one spoke Mandarin and the other spoke Cantonese. There would often be discussions that Cantonese was an inferior language...

I want to finish learning Spanish, then German.

Looks like it's back to pirating for me.

I downloaded the Harry Potter audiobooks in German. Hopefully this will help me to communicate with German preteens about witchcraft and wizardy.

So I've been using Rosetta Stone to refresh my Spanish, I took three years in high school and I live in New Mexico so let's just say I'm exposed to Spanish frequently.

I'm happy with how much I've retained, however my pronunciation is pretty terrible.

I've been a little unimpressed with Rosetta Stone, I think it would be difficult to learn a language in this manner without any previous lessons in the language.

Does anyone have any better techniques? What kinds of resources are you guys using?

That's a really good idea. I think I'll try watching it with spanish subtitles on, because my listening and translating in my head doesn't move as fast as natural speakers speak. But, reading can help quite a bit.

Thanks guys! :)
