There has also been a study comparing Duolingo, Rosetta stone, and a college class. It is buried somewhere in the discussion. Take home message is DUOLINGO WAS BETTER THAN R.S. And it is free. I love these guys and gals :)

I think Duolingo is better. Rosetta Stone costs money and is way more complicated. Duolingo is more fun and free. :) :)

I also think duolingo has greater more fun and better knowledge of languages than rosseta. Sorry rosseta :)

As of right now because I'm broke I'd say Duolingo.

Free Programs, Free Knowledge, Free Programs, Free Knowledge Say it with me Duolingo...

Duolingo also helps to translate the whole internet to English and every other language which is the goal of Duolingo after all. Pretty impressive stuff.

I have tried Rosetta Stone. I would rather recommend Pimsleur + Duolingo. But Not Rosetta Stone, even if it's more used today. But if you look at this Google Trend graph http://bit.ly/17izT8G you can clearly see that Duolingo is gaining a huge crowd and will soon be more popular than Rosetta Stone. I'm not surprised. It's all self evident. Duolingo is much better and it's FREE plus you also help to translate the internet in the meantime! :)

Note that in reality Duolingo has probably already overtaken RS in Google searches, since the "Rosetta Stone" trend of course also includes searches for the actual Rosetta Stone!
