language persuit, does this qualify as travel?

my wife and i are trying to learn a few languages. she- latin american spanish (her roots), me- spanish and russian (my roots) in hopes to one day travel to these places and be less of a tourist. my question is this. what sort of programs are there that can help us do this without having to devote 40 hrs. a week to it. i've seen adds on the craigslist for rosetta stone that boasts to have all 27 languages in one disk. this looks suspect to me because these folks are asking for around 120$ and to buy just one program from rosetta stone it is closer to 250$ has anybody used this "all in one" program? are there any others that you can reccomend?

librivox.org has downloadable free e-books, a few
chapters are in spanish.
..........
OTOH a maybe-quicker way to learn is to buy novellas which
were originally in English, translated to Spanish (paperbacks)
