I studied in Norway for five months. I had an amazing experience and met a German girl, who I fell in love with. She speaks fantastic English, but I wanted to be able to speak to her in her own language, too. I have never taken a German class in my life, but when I returned to America, I decided to buy Rosetta Stone the very first day I was home. I had heard about it through radio and internet advertisement. I wasn’t sure if it would work, but when you are in love, you are willing to try anything in order to make it happen.
So, I began using the program and practicing everything I had learned from each lesson by writing in a notebook for about thirty minutes every day. Then, I began writing messages to the girl in German! I could not believe how easy Rosetta Stone made things. I was able to read and write and speak German with almost no second thoughts. This program will help to make me an asset to employers and just enrich me as a person.
Now, I am going to Germany for one year in September to study with the girl I met. If someone had told me a year ago that I would be learning German, I would have told them they’re crazy. Now I could tell them, “Ja. Ich lerne Deutsch und es ist fantastisch!”
