If you're setting video games as a goal in your life, you need to do some reevaluation.

Sign language translators are not that common, so you can get a decent bonus.

I guess if you're a teacher or some such, that makes sense.

But in many places it simply won't be something you run into.

Hah, when they stop ripping people off, I'll consider not stealing their software. That applies to more than just the program in this thread.

I had a buddy get the German Rossetta Stone for me...but I have yet to actually get it from him.  I hope it works, I really want to be fluent in German.  I took 1 years worth of it in college, so I'm hoping that combined with the classes the software will help me, because as of right now I can only read german.  Talking is too fast for me to keep pace.

I have considered the french version for a while, as I've heard good things about it, and it can't hurt to try.
Also I agree with HV, pirates aren't the only ones stealing.

If you live in the U.S., learning German is kind of silly.

Learn Spanish, and display it as high up in your resume as you can.

You'll thank me later.

Yeah, it's so much better on the resume, but I'm just not that eager to learn Spanish.

Perhaps I'm afraid to fail. Not a lot of Germans around to call me out, although my wife's aunt's girlfriend (partner) is German and speaks to me in German sometimes. Yes, I speak German to a native-German-speaking lesbian.

Depends on your line of work.

I guarantee I'll run into dozens of Germans, French, Italians, and Russians before I find one Hispanic.

I have a little Spanish knowledge after three years of it in high school. nothing to brag about hwoever. I plan on using Rosetta Stone for Spanish as well..

For those who are curious, I started using the German Rosetta Stone today and am pretty shocked at how much I liked it. It may only be day one, but I definitely like the program and will continue using it. I'll update this thread at a later date.

A rare moment where I agree with WGP.

Probably because he'd prefer to be part of the big pile before he adapted to our current society.
