Christianne has been using Rosetta Stone to brush up her Spanish as she travels. And proving that, with Rosetta Stone, you can immerse yourself in the language you want to learn, wherever in the world you are: Have a look at this entertaining video she made in Spanish, from Sri Lanka!
Some more thoughts about Language learning from Christianne:
“When I travel to foreign countries where English is not the native language, I always seem to find myself having the same problem; I’ll know approximately one phrase in the local language and sometimes it’s useful, but most of the time it really just doesn’t make sense.
I will try and get away with using that one phrase I know as much as I can – milk it for all it’s worth – but really, it’s just stupid. And it makes me feel lazy and ignorant and that I haven’t bothered to learn more. The reality is that learning a new language isn’t just something that you can immediately just get, it takes time and practice and patience.”

“When I was in Central America last year and in 2015, my Spanish just kept getting better the more time I spent there. That feeling when you can finally conduct a small conversation in another language, even if it’s just simple but you understand what is going on, is one of the best things ever. Not only are you just that bit more connected with the locals and other people of the world, but you feel accomplished. You’ve worked hard, you’ve learnt and you’ve achieved.
“Unfortunately, if you stop practising your new language, it’s so easy to forget so much that you have learnt. You’ve got to continue to work on it. This is one reason why I’ve started planning a trip back to Latin America: to practice what I’ve learnt. In the meantime, I have a 12month subscription with Rosetta Stone. I actually used Rosetta Stone before I went to Central America for the first time, just to learn the basics. I’m very excited to be using it for the whole year this time in the build-up to what I hope will be a very rewarding trip in Latin America next year.”
