Doesn't matter what language you are learning the most important thing is to USE the language. If you don't have anyone to speak the language with, then READ, READ, READ in that language.

I think the best way to learn a language is to learn the grammar structure and the vocabulary. The Rosetta Stone system (I tried the Chinese one) only had pictures and no context. I think it was trying to teach me to say "the horse is very big".

For learning English up to advanced level, you need to know the structure, usage and grammar. Just like you need to have the utensils and the ingredients to prepare good curry, you will definitely need all the basics to master Standard English.
