Hello, it is nice to be here. I haven't been here that long, less then a year and still a newlywed. It is a semi quiet city and liking it here. I hope to make friends on here! :)

Hi and welcome. I am in NC and very close to Ft. Bragg. My dh was Army/ 82nd for 17 years, due to health finished out his time in the reserves. We love it here, it seems a lot of people don't. But after almost 25 years, Fayetteville is home. We live outside of town in the country but if anyone needs info about the area let me know!

Wow, all my years here and even after homeschooling my kids and running a group, I 've never had that request. I've looked and checked with friends. Nope. Rosetta Stone is what people are using for languages.

 I was afraid of that being the only choice around here.. and thank you so much for helping me out! See with Rosetta Stone, it is for a beginners and my girls are in the elementary to middle school level. But I guess I could let them refresh themselves with it but have you used it? I know that my husband can get it for free through the army but since he is deployed and he checked it out for me overseas and now we are trying to figure out how I can get into the system and since it is night and day with our schedules we hardly get to skype.(
