Getting the Stone Rolling

This year, my school decided to pilot using Rosetta Stone in the Spanish program. After a number of technical and communication issues, we launched last week by introducing it to the fifth and sixth graders. They enjoyed it, it was clearly easy to use, and I will withhold judgement until I see how their learning is affected. One thing is clear, the company is outstanding at selling their product. This is neither good nor bad, but it says nothing about the pedagogical soundness of their product.
