If anyone did finish one, how is their conversational in the language? The more time goes by at my job the more I realize, I need to be bilingual. It's making my job a pain not to be.

Hola, I used http://livemocha.com/.
Es gratis, helped me pass Espanol Nivel 1.
I've since switched to Chino, since that
class had a program where students get to
live and study in China for free for a few
weeks. Youtube also has a lot of good stuff.
