Learning Spanish for Love
I am having very good results with your program. I started with Rosetta Stone, and Pimsleur and of the three I find Language 101 to be the most effective . . .
I am lucky in that I was recently married to a native Spanish speaker so I have a built in motivator and coach.
I enjoy your program very much.

Doctor Recommends Language101.com Spanish
My wife and I purchased the languages super package. Our primary goal to learn to speak credibly in Spanish by April, so we can raise our first child bilingually. We also believe it will be very helpful in our professional careers. We both had a few years of Spanish in High School and College.
The language101.com course is fantastic. After less than a week we have acquired quite a lot of phrases and vocabulary. We are carrying on short conversations between ourselves in Spanish. We believe we have acquired the best course on the market to learn foreign languages rapidly at the best price. We can see our due diligence is paying off big time.

Athlete Learns Spanish
I am from Liverpool in the UK although, I am currently a university student in America on a soccer scholarship.
Lots of my team-mates and friends are Hispanic and I would love to be able to comunicate with them in Spanish, their native language.
I have been very impressed with the service that language 101 provides. Initially I had been told about Rosetta Stone and I was doing some research about their product when I came across yours.
The "try before you buy" service is a very effective marketing technique and it is the primary reason why I am so interested in your language program.
It is extremely easy to use with no gimmicks or smoke and mirrors, just straightforward to the point learning.
The technique of learning in phrases with both the meaning and a word for word translation presented is very beneficial to me as it allows me to see the whole picture in my mind.
Furthermore, the method of re-visiting questions frequently seems to be very helpful in training my memory and is both challenging and stimulating. I am very excited!

Learning Spanish for Life in Ecuador
I've completed the first 20 lessons in Spanish. Thanks
I am hooked on this. Sue and I plan to experience life in Ecuador next year and Language101.com is making me feel a lot more comfortable.
Yes, I'm learning a lot. It's cool when I get a new phrase correct by putting words together that I learned from other lessons. I know there's a long way to go, but this is fun.
You're welcome to use my words. I really do enjoy this.

New Zealand Chef Learns French
My name is Lydia and I live in New Zealand. I learned French with Language101.com because I am a professional chef and I am interested in French cuisine.
Also when I went to Tahiti, I used my French language knowledge there. Most Tahitians speak French in their daily life.
I like Language101.com because I can learn French anytime, anywhere and at a time that is convenient for me.

Language Teacher: Possibly the Best Existing Software
I did a search for "review Rosetta Stone," because I was wondering whether anyone had in fact reviewed it and found it wanting. I found this site, whose sample Russian lessons I am going to recommend to my students.
I suspect that this would be the best existing software for language learning. Pretty expensive…but looks like, for once, it might be worth it, as opposed to the Rosetta Stone.
I’m impressed by a few things: one, that there are songs and movie clips. Two, that they have a word for word translation and also a separate meaning translation. Three, that they have some of my favorite songs and movie clips there!

American and Russian Love
My wife is Russian, we've been married for 2 years. Before I started using Language101.com, I didn't know any Russian.
For the last several weeks, I've been studying Russian for 20 or 30 minutes per day, and now I know a little bit!
My wife and my mother in law have both complimented me on my Russian accent.
Your program is very easy to use.

Adopted from Russia to America
I'm from Oakland, California. Though I was born in Novorossiysk, Russia. I was adopted at age 5, with my brother. Just about a year ago I found my birth family and we had our reuniting this past summer.
It was an amazing trip, with lots of love and warmth going around, along with many memories that came rushing back. With all this excitement I had asked my Russian sister if I could live with her for a year, after high school. Where I could teach her family English and get my Russian back. And she agreed!
My American dad found the Language101.com website while searching the web for Russian lessons for me. Though I was planning on going to Russia not knowing any of the language, my dad suggested that I check this site out.
I got really into this web site, and I decided that I should know some Russian before going there, so I wouldn't get lost in the airport, or have awkward moments with my family.
Anyway, I absolutely love this website. Though I have just started, I am already learning so much. I thank you So SO SO much for creating this site.

Why I Developed Language101.com
"Someone should make it easier to learn a foreign language." But of course there is no "someone" who will make things easier, or more beautiful or who will make them with more love.
There are only two people who can do that, you and me.
Have you ever heard someone talk about food that's made with love? We'll we're trying to make our software with love.
Our software isn't perfect, but we are continuously back in the kitchen of bits and bytes adding tasty cyberspace ingredients like more simplicity and more ease of use.
It's a recipe for foreign language learning that I hope you will find delicious!
