Later this afternoon, a former Fulbrighter and continual friend from ten years back, Jennifer just happened to send me this link to The Onion titled “First Disk Of Rosetta Stone Hungarian Just Urges Listeners To Rethink This Whole Thing”. Click here to read the story.
We had lunch yesterday with a group of Fulbrighter who are leaving. It is always a somber time for us to lose our ‘friends’ of one or two semesters.
We were discussing Hungarian and each of our failed attempts at learning it. One of the women in attendance was saying her friend works for Rosetta Stone. They have been working on a Hungarian version for 3 years without success, so are thinking of giving it up.
