But I think it might be easier to learn online since online can give me an English definition of the word, where as my parents cant since they dont speak English very well.
How do you communicate with them?

Chinese, but they said I speak at an elementary level, so when my relatives communicate with me, they have to talk to me like I'm a little kid so I can understand. I want to learn Chinese so I could get a chance to move to China to live there if something bad were to happen in the US.

EDIT - Instead of creating an new thread, I am just going to ask another question here.
Due to our financial status because of college, my family probably cant have an vacation to China to visit our relatives for awhile. So instead, we thought they should come here since they are retired. Problem is that they are not guaranteed to get the Visa to come to the US, and it costs about $200 to each try. Is there any way to increase the chances or help them have a vacation here?

if you where indifferent to alternative means of appropriating the software it wouldnt be too expensive .

and besides which if you dont agree with piracy im sure f something like this is worth doing its worth doing properly and from what i have heard/.seen rosetta stone certainly does do its stuff
