By the time I finally got to the package and really looked at it I found out it was not the Rosetta Stone package. I was surprised how that affected me. My heart sunk. The package was actually beads I had ordered for a class I will be taking later this month through Skype. You would have thought I would have been excited all over again, right? But strangely I wasn't.
I feel I need every bit of time I can to learn some Swedish if I am going to make a trip to Sweden later this year. I already feel the pressure because one week this month has already disappeared with nothing accomplished in that regard.
Yesterday while I was waiting for my hubby, we planned to go to the gym together, I decided to open and explore the package more closely. I tried downloading the program probably four times before I realized no matter what I did it wasn't going to work. I thought I was missing something. So frustrating.
My husband told me to call the company, but I decided to try the online help first. Well, the help was great, it took some time, but I was taken care of and pleased with the help. I apparently needed a link of some sort to add to the program, almost seemed like an update, but it wasn't because I would get the update link already. I am thinking it was an activating link. I just wish there were instructions to let you know you needed help to make the darn thing work. Had I known it was going to activate the actual contact with someone speaking Swedish I would have waited with that part, but to late now. Next time I will be more aware and understand how this works!
Needless to say, I never went to the gym. I was very frustrated and probably spent a good 3-4 hours getting the darn thing set up! One thing I wish I understood ahead of time was that they activated me for three months with the live communication in Swedish. I have three months, that is all unless I pay more money and I have no idea how much that would be.
So I feel the pressure. I need to immerse myself in this program. I certainly hope these lessons aren't as difficult as setting the program up was...
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
