    If you are looking to learn a new language then Google Offers has a good deal for you.
    For $39 you get a one-year online language course (valued at $99.95)
    As a frequent traveler, I wish that I spoke more than one language. I can get by to some extent in Spanish speaking countries with my version of the language but would never say that I speak it!

    This price for Livemocha has shown up frequently on Groupon. Anyone have any reviews of it?

    I'd be interested to know what people's experience have been with these courses. I've always wanted to try Rosetta Stone or something alike, though not sure if I would spend ~$500+ on a language learning software.

    Quite frankly, I would rather pay $500 to travel to a foreign country to learn some new words :D

    I read a few reviews stating that it is OK. For the price it might be worth a shot. I wouldn't expect to learn to speak a new language fluently but you should pick up some vocabulary etc...

    I hear you on visiting a country to learn a language. I'd love to spend a couple of months in Central America- using the time to take a language course. However, comparing a $39 online site/ course to try to learn in a foreign country is probably not fair. If you were considering full price on Rosetta Stone, I'd say go for the trip to learn! lol
