    Rosetta Stone and Pimsleur seem to be two of the most popular audio resources for learning Latin American Spanish. I am going to pursue a career in the health field in California so it is absolutely imperative that I improve my Spanish :D. What resources can you recommend for bolstering conversational Spanish? I don't plan on being a traveler in Latin American countries, so phrases like, "Excuse me, where is the nearest art museum?" aren't terribly useful. I've taken 4 years of high school Spanish and know a fair amount of medical terminology in Spanish. Much appreciated!

    I know you don't want to be a traveler, but immersion is the best and fastest way to learn. I'm going to Spain for the first time in February and can't wait!

    I agree. Rosetta stone and online courses will greatly improve your Spanish but, the fastest and most effective way to learn is by speaking with native speakers. Good luck learning - it is a valuable skill!
