Hi Dave,

I have been catching up from time to time on the SA boards for RST. Your deep dives have been immensely helpful. My concern though is not so much on management (I don't know much about the management team, in any case) but more on the market potential for language learning.

I have tried a few other immersion language programs before and it never struck me as a very sticky product or effective product. It's anecdotal, I know but I was hoping to see how RST can make this a more intuitive product -- to paraphrase QLIK and AAPL. To be sure, I would love it if RST could make language learning easy and fun for the user -- there is a great potential in making tough subjects accessible. Noted is that I am aware of their subscription-based discussion boards and so on, but like SCSS, I guess simply never quite got it.

One of my lessons in my first few stock trades to go for "better foresight, fair price" rather than "vague foresight, cheap price". Now, it's a concept in my head and I am not implying that RST is one with a vague future but it is easier for me to imagine a SBUX or AMZN in the future than it is for RST.

Thoughts?

Best Regards
HL Chin
