Question by asdfghjkl;: Rosetta Stone for Russian?
My school is offering a language class using Rosetta Stone. i signed up and already paid for the class. what i want to do is learn Russian, but i don’t know anything about the Russian language, i don’t even know simple greetings.
i really want to learn Russian because I’ve fallen in love with Russian lit, especially Dostoevsky and Solzhenitsyn. Someday i want to be able to read them in the original Russian.
I’m 16 years old and i don’t really know any language besides English and a little Spanish. So I’m wondering how difficult this will be if i go into this class knowing what i know now (pretty much nothing). i also want to know what i could do to prepare myself for this class over the summer.
Also, if you’ve used rosetta stone, did you like it? is it a good way to learn a language?
i don’t want to read Dostoevsky in Russian right away (well, i do, but i know i can’t)
that’s just a long term goal. and my main reason for getting into Russian
