4-0 out of 5 stars Intuitive program
I like the immersion-feel of the program.It is very intuitive; you learn faster than you are at first aware.I am only through the first quarter or so of the material, but I am enjoying this program.It's repetitive, but in no other way does it seem like a chore.

3-0 out of 5 stars It's OK...Depending on How you Learn Best...
I found that I can not learn another language without ANY English involved.I don't like having to guess at what they would like for me to know just by looking at pictures.I need to hear it in English first and then hear the foriegn phrase.
5-0 out of 5 stars unlike any other!
This program is amazing. We have an apartment in France, and for five years have been attempting to learn the language. This is a fun and different approach with which we have made more progress in a month, than past years of memorization and boring drills. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Smart French works!
Smart French is a unique program that carefully introduces the learner to the way the language is really spoken by native speakers.I've used many instructional materials, texts, cd roms, tapes, videos, and have taken classes as well as worked with a private tutor for a year.Smart French is one of the best programs I've used, particularly in the way it structures the lessons and its use of highlighted text that shows what is and is not pronounced in French conversation.It has helped a lot with listening comprehension. I'm also pleased that my pronunciation, fluency, and accent have improved. I have a long way to go, but this program has made a difference.I recommend Smart French highly as a very effective way to increase confidence and ease with the language.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not Your Father's Language Lab
If you are serious about understanding spoken French, and learning to speak it yourself, then you owe it to yourself to pick up Smart French.Each lesson is broken down into logical steps that enable you to progress rapidly.It still takes discipline and motivation, and a good book on grammar is highly recommended, but of all the ways I have attempted to learn and to teach myself french, this is far and away the best.
5-0 out of 5 stars The right approach learning French
I am a French native and I am very very very familiar with SmartFrench. I am a French teacher myself and this product is the best. You won't be bored with endless old fashion text and audio which will put you to sleep. This interactive product will keep you interested and fresh.

5-0 out of 5 stars Learning French Can Be Fun
My daughters needed to begin learning French quickly because it is a part of the curriculum at their new school.This CD has made the learning process fun for them and me.We all use it and enjoy the activities on it.The girls will play Doki voluntarily when they have free time and love the graphics and occasional silliness of the characters.I bought two different learn to speak French CDs and they have a strong preference for this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for whole family!
This product totally surpassed my expectations. Originally bought as a gift for my daughter, I ended up using for myself for trips to Montreal and France with my husband.This product is perfect for anyone who wants to learn a language fast. To learn the basics to converse in restaurants, banks, airports, hotels, shopping without sounding like a fool.It didn't waste my time with grammar or things I wouldn't need.It was fun as it uses humourous cartoon characters who at first seemed childish, but then I realized it made for a non-intimidating environment for someone who couldn't remember more than bonjour from high school.As for my daughter, it provided her with much needed comprehension pratise that's not emphasized at schools as much anymore.Very happy with purchase and well worth my money, ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Invest in something better
I hated this sofware from the beginning.Right of the bat the directions are very poor, and the activities are much to hard for someone with no French background.This is not a program for beginners, so do not buy unless you have a background in French (even if the box might tell you otherwise).I worked through the first CD (supposedly 100 hours worth of material), and I feel as lost as confused as ever.Do youself a favor and invest in a better program.

2-0 out of 5 stars There Are Much Better Ways of Learning French
I purchased this product looking for a cheaper alternative to the more expensive language software.As a student with absolutely no previous educaion in French, this program did not help me at all.It starts out right into full dialogue-with no introduction to vocabulary, grammar, or even the alphabet or basic pronunciation.There many activities that are difficult to do, one of the first is when you must listen to several words and phrases in rapid French and type them in-with no introduction to spelling or listening to the most basic phrases.I found myself doing the activities just to get through them, and I REMEMBERED VERY VERY LITTLE.What kept this from a 1 star were the grammar explanation features, and conjugation tool.Immersion may be the best way, but try a much cheaper or even free way first (I recommend french.about.com!) , but don't waste money on an almost useless product.

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid Package
You will like their approach to teaching you a new language.I cannot say that it is better than the Rosetta stone but it is closer than what the price difference would make you believe.

3-0 out of 5 stars So-so for the money
The idea and format aren't bad. I would have liked it if there had been a few more words to learn. Also, instead of learning animal names, which aren't very useful if you don't live on a farm, they should have included some simple sentences. A little more material or a little lower price would have increased my rating to 4 stars.

2-0 out of 5 stars There must be a better bang for your buck.
I bought this software on the recommendation of some software review site, and I must say my 9 year old daughter and I were disappointed. The graphics are sometimes hard to make out on the screen. (The animation altogether isn't very appealing at all, but that's not why I bought it . . . )And my daughter kept repeating, "But I want to learn sentences!" It's just an okay introduction if you want to learn the names of fruits and vegetables.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome For Kids
KidSpeak 6-in-1 is an awesome product for kids to have fun with and learn several languages(Spanish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Hebrew). The animation is very fun and my kids really love this. I love the fact that my child will talk to me in a different language and I'm sure other parents would agree. When it comes down to it, Transparent Language did an awesome job with this software and I couldn't be more satisfied with it. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good for review only.Not for beginner learner.
I found this really difficult to learn from.Since I had spoken French many years ago, I was able to remember some things.It was then that I realized this was actually quite effective for reviewing a language I was rusty in.And the voice recognition software was useful in refining my accent.
4-0 out of 5 stars Instant Immersion French Deluxe CDs
it would be helpful to have a base (know the pronunciation and a few words)

3-0 out of 5 stars Great for refreshing rusty knowledge
I can see why a complete beginner would not like this software. I agree that it would be difficult for a beginner to use. The glossary and the grammar instruction are not placed in obvious locations. You end up having to 'stumble across' them. However, once you do find them, they are in fact pretty useful, providing pronunciation for all glossary words and useful examples of grammar. This software would definitely not offer the same benefits as a traditional beginning French class though.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great software, recommended by my teacher
I attend Rice University and take French classes there. We use TeLL me More during our classes and I though it would be much better for me to get my own copy, so I can also use it after class and progress faster. The activities are really engaging and you can really progress in French, and not be bored. My teacher put a lot of emphasis on the pronunciation part, as this software really helps you improve it
2-0 out of 5 stars A for effort,F for execution
I'm having the same problem described by other users: the program freezes during the pronuncation exercises, necessitating a reboot.This happens repeatedly, rendering the speech recognition feature of the software essentially unusable.In addition to this specific problem, the software is agonizingly slow when switching between lessons, and even between different portions of the same lesson.My computer is above the specs recommended by the manufacturer, so the problems appear to be due to poor programming.Bottom line: stay away from this product until it has been properly debugged.

2-0 out of 5 stars Would be good if it ran without freezing constantly
This is a pretty good language course, as far as content goes, but it has one major problem - it freezes constantly.

Learn to speak French through complete immersion. The Euro Method is an easy and simple way to learn to speak a second language. Based on the same techniques that allow a 4-year-old child to speak a language long before that same child can read or write, the Instant Immersion French CDs teach users to speak French quickly. The software provides interactive lessons that truly immerse users in the language. The two CD-ROMs enclosed are from EuroTalk, a European publisher of language-learning software. Talk Now! and World Talk will take users from beginning to intermediate levels using fun and easy-to-follow methods. Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Misleading...
I ordered this software under the assumption it would be compatible with my operating system.It does, after all, say that it works with all Mac OS' from OS 7.5.3 or later.3-0 out of 5 stars Easy and then tough
I found it to be very helpful in pronouncing the words.The first CD covers elementary words and is sort of fun to play with the vocabulary games.Anybody that hasn't studied French can even do the first one, no problem.However, the second CD covers a bit more than just elementary word games.It jumps up to basic understanding of conversations which the first CD will not prepare you for.If you have a basic level of French grammar and can slightly understand a conversation in French, you should be able to tackle the second one OK.2-0 out of 5 stars not very good for the beginner, intermediate, anyone
simply stated, this program is not very good for the beginner in that CD 2 is too difficult; and it's not very good for the intermediate french speaker in that CD 1 is too easy.Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars It's not worth for REALLY learning the Language
My dad got this for me because i like to learn languages. It was misleading for me what is says on the package "each disc a complete course". It is useful for you if you want to learn basic things like phrases for traveling but NOT if you REALLY want to learn the language. If want to learn basic travel things this WILL be for you. But if you want to REALLY Learn the language you better get the Instant Immersion Laguage course devoted to one language.
4-0 out of 5 stars Instant maybe. Immersion questionable.
My dad got this for me to supplement a Latin textbook I have been studying for my high school language course. It is quick and easily understandable. You get plenty of words and phrases, which is perfect for a traveler. If you want to learn the language for the sake of knowing it, not travel, however, you'd better get a book to supplement this. It doesn't teach about pluralization, verb conjugation, or other oddities that the language holds, such as, in Latin, the ending -m which implies a direct object. The Latin CD also does not use the dashes over the vowels, which may or may not be necessary, I don't know. Overall, I am very happy with the product and with the price of $39.99 (USD), but I am also quite glad I have my textbook (ECCE ROMANI) to go with it.

This interactive learning experience is fun, colorful and very humorous!It makes learning enjoyable!The only drawback to this program is that it is quite difficult to understand at first.You need to have substantial knowledge of French to be able to catch on to the process; luckily there is an English translation to everything so that you can figure it out.Overall I found Asterix to be a good learning tool in my ongoing effort to learn French. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Immersion?Doesn't get your feet wet
Rather weak.The product does not include the foreign words written in English letters, so that it's difficult to tell what they're saying.And the overdubbed models speaking the words are of no benefit whatsoever.Neither does the program help you build a useful traveler's vocabulary.Overall, a poorly designed product.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good for price, but very limited
This is a good program if you are going to a foreign country and would like to know a few words. But, each language is very limited. There is words like Thank you, you're welcome, yes, no, etc. I would reccomend this program for people who like to explore new languages, like me. But don't plan on learning a new language with this program. I suggest getting a book or a program that teaches just the language you would like to learn. But, not a bad price for just $20.

2-0 out of 5 stars not worth the money
Get a more language specific set of CD's. This is rather boring, it teaches basically 85 words and phrases in each language. They have characters say the words for you, but pronunciation is hard to mimic because they did not actually video tape the people saying the words. They video taped them in English, and then dub the sound over. You cannot tell where your lips are supposed to be, where your tongue should be or anything helpful for correct pronunciation. You do not learn how to order anything or conduct business. You learn "Where is the bank?" and "Where are the suitcases?" From there you could probably substitute other vocabulary words, but there are no activities in which you are asked to do so. There are no sentence formation activities. The only thing this is good for is a tiny collection of vocabulary with generic pronunciation instruction. If you have never heard a language before, it gives you something at least. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great vocabulary builder.
Before You Know It uses the flashcard method of teaching vocabulary four ways. Words and phrases are divided into lists by category. User selects a list then goes to the activity of choice to learn the contents of that list. There are a few more activities available in the Deluxe version that the free trial version doesn't have, but both versions use virtual flashcards the following way:
3-0 out of 5 stars Good concept. Poor implementation. Horrible customer support
Well first of all when I got this software I absolutely loved it. Spent few days and it really worked (I learned few hundreds words or so). Nice user inteface. Very simple (sometimes to simple, it could benefit from few advanced options). But none the less I liked it. When I started to advance and type words faster I discovered few problems like: program will hung if you type to fast (or if you turn cards to fast), some minor (but very annoying problems with editor). So I mailed couple feedbacks, request, etc. explaining the problem in details, asking whether fix/update is available and stuff. Hardly get any responce. They basically told me to reinstall it.
5-0 out of 5 stars Innovative and Very Intuitive
This product is absolutely amazing. It is an extremely useful educational tool for language learning and much more. The Before You Know It Multipack is designed for language learning, especially vocabulary, by basically using electronic flashcards. The Multipack version includes an enormous amount of content for Spanish, French, Italian and German languages and is a good place to start learning the languages or for studying/refreshing. Now this is great for language learning but in my opinion the best feature of this program is the ability to make your own electronic flashcards for anything and you can also share them with friends through email and on Palm Pilots. To me this is a must have for studying anything that you need to memorize. It is so useful and very helpful in these aspects. It also shows you the cards you have the most trouble learning more frequently than the ones that you do not have trouble remembering which in the end means that you will have a very effective studying method. This program is very user friendly, simple to use and has plethora of uses. I believe that even ifyou do not want the language aspects the program, it is still more than worth having just because of the ability to create your own cards. Ideal for students, teachers, and anything else that requires memorization. Have no doubts, Before You Know It definitely earns its 5-star rating. ... Read more
