My children attend Saturday afternoon Greek School for four hours (think: My Big Fat Greek Wedding). My background is Greek, I speak it but my husband doesn't so speaking it at home just doesn't come naturally. We also have Rosetta Stone Greek, and I find it to be an excellent program, and we use it sporadically as a supplement.
Where I live there are ethnic language programs offered in various community/church settings. A friend of mine has her children in the Saturday Spanish program through the Spanish community. She is not Spanish, and that hasn't been a problem. I have heard that there is a similar German program offered somewhere in the city.
Other than Rosetta Stone, I do not have any experience with other computer language programs, but I can say I do like Rosetta Stone a lot. Try checking out some language programs through the community like the ones mentioned above.
We love our Saturday Greek School. The kids have made some great friends, they get the 'schooly' experience, they sit in a desk, have a backpack and lunch kit, are learning lots of Greek, and dh and I get a 4 hour date! My only kid free time all week.
