Summer language learning suggestions?

I would like to learn Spanish this summer. I realize that sounds ambitious, but, let's move past that.

At this point, I can't afford to go take classes. Digging around a bit, I found the textbook used by some local universities for Spanish 1-4. I was planning on just working through that on my own (I speak Italian—I'm confident enough in this method), however, one review on Amazon mentioned it was difficult to use without a professor/teacher.

Does anybody have any other suggestions/methods/books? Rosetta stone aside.

Immersion process. Hitchhike to Mexico and get a job as a laborer.

My dad sent me this link--I don't know how useful it is, though.

You might check your local library for some resources. My little library offers foreign language lessons that I can access from home.

There are also inexpensive language development programs (ie Living Language from Random House) you can load onto your mp3 player. I have found that helpful in the past.
