A Question about Rosetta Stone

So I got this thing working again about a week ago. It remembered where I was the last time I worked on it, about a year ago -- I hadn't made it very far, because I had been having trouble getting the headset to work properly (d'oh -- had to go into system preferences and adjust things. And then adjust them some more). And I haven't been able to work on it every day for the last week, however, I'm up to Level 1 Unit 4, done with Lesson 3 and the Core Lesson for Unit 4 but not the subsidiary parts (under 2 hours, even if it takes the estimated time for each component, which they rarely if ever do). I think I'm one lesson and a Milestone away from the end of Level 1.

I've been surfing around trying to figure out how long it takes to get through all three levels, and I keep hearing people sort of hammer through it in [insert widely variant time here] and then learn (I'm betting through talking to someone in support) it usually takes a year. Which I have to say I'm a little skeptical of.

Anyone ever work through _any_ language in Rosetta? The one other person I know who has, is currently working on Italian, so I'm going to have to wait until he's done to ask him how long it took to get through.
