pre-Christmas

Well, the semester's over and I think I survived. I'll let you know when I find out with certainty. Beyond that, I am hoping my voice returns from its vacation, before this Saturday. I am spending the break mostly learning the Holy Week services in Greek and using the Rosetta Stone for modern Greek. The Rosetta Stone has been going well; the Holy Week services have hit a snag once my voice decided it needed some time away from me. There are a couple of articles I need to finish for OrthodoxWiki and I'll link to them when I finish (hopefully before the end of the year).

Whats a Rosetta Stone?

In this case, it's a software program for learning languages. I got it as part of the intensive Greek program I took last summer, which is a good thing, because by itself it costs about $300. The program exists for a variety of languages and they claim it's used by all sorts of places (army, nasa, etc.). It's pretty good, so I'm trying to put it to good use.

I've heard about this software program. I'd be interested to learn how helpful it is to you. I need to study either German or French as a History major.

The program is pretty good. I would keep a dictionary handy, however, because there are a few instances where the pictures don't really portray the concept they are trying to describe. Other than that, I've enjoyed using it.
