    Online access to all 31 Rosetta Stone language training courses is free to all Army Active, Guard, and Reserve soldiers as well as Army civilian employees and contracted ROTC and USMA cadets. You can access the training by logging onto Army e-Learning at usarmy.skillport.com. If it is the first time you have used Army e-Learning click the registration button in the middle of the page and after registering come back and log on to Army e-Learning to start your language training. The lessons are self-paced, self-directed and active duty soldiers earn one promotion point for each five hours of training credit they complete while reserve soldiers earn one retirement point for each three hours of training credit they complete.

            Absolutely,I do. But it doesn't mean "anything" for your promotion as an officer. I put that in quotations because it's not going to give you extra points, but if your OER states that you taught yourself a language fluently your next commander or the official looking at your documents for promotion or something will like that.
