Is Rosetta Stone for Swedish any good? I can't seem to find anything else :(

Well, for Croatian I would say the best ones are Teach Yourself and FSI.

I said awhile ago I didn't like Assimil or the audio methods, like Michel Thomas and Pimsleur.

I was wrong.

I love Assimil now, since I've finally figured out a way of using it that I like. I'm not really using the audio mehtods anymore, but they're pretty good for starting a languages.

Could you explain the way you use Assimil? I love Assimil using it by its own method, but it's always good to hear about other ways of using learning materials.

I used Pimsleur for French, now I'm using Michel Thomas for Russian. At the time I liked Pimsleur, mostly because I found it useful that they teach new words from backwards, syllable by syllable, but it was a bit too boring for me, too slow. The topics, too, were off-putting, not very innovative. After having discovered Michel Thomas I wouldn't switch to anything else as a main source now. The learning process seems the most natural with them, plus it's fun listening to three "real" people.

I'm starting to think that Rosetta Stone is good for Germanic languages, but Fluenz is good for Latin languages.

Any comment on this? :)

I tried RS v2 for German. It was not very good.

You should try version 3. Or 4. The images are different and the program is more attractive.

Here's an example:
