4-0 out of 5 stars Rosetta Stone Spanish - Are the Criticisms Fair or Unfair? Accurate or Inaccurate?
As the editor of the Learning Spanish Products Reviews (LearningSpanishProductsReviews) site, one of my responsibilities is to review learning-Spanish software products that are listed on Amazon. I am also a native Spanish speaker and a professional Spanish instructor.
1-0 out of 5 stars Completely useless on it's own!
This course is completely useless as a standalone course. It is supposed to take you from beginner to intermediate level, but you will learn very little that you can use in the real world.
3-0 out of 5 stars Warning!Disks cannot be copied
After just paying 200.00 for the program for my son, I find that the disk is NOT something that can be copied for backup.

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.

4-0 out of 5 stars better than most, but not nearly what it could be
Depending on your learning style, this might be the best non-classroom language learning method out there.This software you two advantages over learning from a book/cassette that make it easily worth the cost.First, you get to hear the words as they are introduced, and see a picture of what they describe.This engages both auditory and kinesthetic learning processes.Second, the extensive practice options essentially set your learning methodology for you (no need to make your own flashcards, etc), which makes this a fairly stress-free, almost passive process.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good for a beginner
Purchased this after having experienced their Spanish course.It is a great software to have.It builds up slowly and is very easy to follow.I, especially, enjoy the companion book.It is entirely in Hindi.I take it with me a lot and read a chapter or two a day.I really wish they would add levels to this course like they do with the European language courses.
5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
I can't believe I'm understanding Hindi sentences!I am amazed everyday when I look at the length of these sentences and know that I understand it.And I'm only on Unit 1, lesson 10 I really hope they come out with a level two. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Sign Language
The video portion frequently skips.The signers have different hand motions, so it can be hard to tell the same sign.Would be interested to see a rating system of beginner, intermediate, advanced from Instant Immersion on their product(s).

4-0 out of 5 stars Instant Immersion ASL Deluxe -Good for the Beginner
I have had the Instant Immersion ASL Deluxe program for a little over a month.I think it is very helpful for those just learning to sign, but not for the more advanced signer.I have taken sign language courses in the past, and to me it is very similar, with the exception of that in school I had to learn signs from drawings, which can be difficult to see which way to hold you hand or turn you fingers.The program uses video to show how to correctly display fingers and how to make proper hand gestures.It also allows you to replay and to slow down the video if you need more practice with certain words or phrases.
4-0 out of 5 stars A good start
This software is offers a good start for learning ASL.I've learned the general syntax of ASL, a bit of vocabulary, and seen different people's "accents".It will also be a good reference for me because of the dictionary that is included.However, I wish it had better games and quizes. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best German Software
This is by far the best German software. I did a lot of research before my purchase and was able to evaluate demos of other companies as well as look for reviews online and ask advice to teachers at my university. I was impressed by TeLL me More, and decided to buy this software and am really satisfied about it. There are so many different activities that learning is very engaging, videos and dialogues makes it also very interactive. The speech recognition technology is great as well, and I really feel it helped me a lot with my pronunciation.

1-0 out of 5 stars A complete joke
I have never written a review for Amazon before, but I found this product so utterly worthless that I couldn't resist the temptation, lest others fall into the same trap I did.It might have some applications for people who have ADHD and can't concentrate on a book or a Pimsleur lesson, but any serious language learner will find this program, with its idiotic sound effects, its more or less incomprehensible sound graphs, and its laborious manner of arriving at the point, a pure waste of time.People might find it fun and might think themselves special for having learned to say "Guten Abend" and "Wie geht es ihnen," but I have grave doubts any substantive competency can be gained with this method.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor value for money
I bought this software hoping it would teach me german from the ground up .This just threw me right in to speaking words and phrases I found it diffcult to use and follow.I bought a book and some cassette tapes and found them to be superior for my money for a lot less dollars.I will try them AGAIN cause I cannot take it back BUYER BEWARE. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great customer service
I bought this software on Amazon and was curious after I read some of the reviews here, so I decided to call Auralog and ask them questions. They were on the phone with me for more than 45 minutes, answering all my questions. They sent me a Quick Start Guide that is very helpful at the beginning. For instance, it shows that at the beginning, in the dialogue activity, there are no right or wrong answers it is a matter of looking at the translations and hearing the Spanish sounds, to get familiar with Spanish. After that, other activities will reuse these words to reinforce the learning, and then you can actually speak these using the microphone they provide. They also have technical support available, I did not need it as my Spanish course is working great on my PC. I really appreciated their time to walk me through the software. I am very happy about my purchase as I feel I am progressing more and more every day, which is great as I never learnt Spanish before. The software itself is very nicely designed and has a lot of different activities, making it very fun to learn, even at my age.

1-0 out of 5 stars Terribly Disappointed
I bought this based on the comments I seen here and I guess I shouldve listened to the few who didnt like it, because im one of them. First off, the flash interface is very slow. I spend more time looking at that little loading clock than anything else. Sometimes when it locks up and I close the program, it makes everything on my PC delayed. This only happens when the flash program in TMMS locks up. I started with the beginners CD, which is far from that. I have all 3 Pimsleur programs (great stuff) so I have a grasp on Spanish, and I still didnt know half the words in the beginners CD. And nothing actually teaches them to you. It throws words at you without telling you what they mean so you constantly have to hit the translate target symbol to check, and wait for it to load each time. How frustrating! This is a terrible way to try and memorize anything. Next, it doesnt tell you whether you are right or wrong. You have to go back to the welcome page to see the % you got right of the whole lesson. So theres no way to tell which particular ones you got wrong in each lesson. I went into options and checked "make sound for right/wrong answer" but theres no sound for right/wrong so I dont yet know its use. In the dialogue mode it shows you a pic, asks a question, then you pick the answer. No matter what I pick it just highlights green and moves to the next question. Leaving you to scratch your head whether you got it right or not. To test it, one question was "Do you have long hair?" and it shows a girl with very long hair. I answered "No, my hair is very short." It highlights green and goes to the next question. What the???? At least highlight in red or something, give me a clue here! Then one section actually expects you to conjugate and write these words without even knowing what they mean and without any prior lessons on the different ways to spell them. The manual that comes with it is horrible, it only explains the install, which really needs no explaining because it was easy but I understand it needs to be in there, and the 3 modes of learning. Thats it. The in-program help is fairly nice, but once again, waiting for it to load and the slowness makes it something you dont care to use. My PC is far past the reccomended requirements to run this program and yet it runs like a turtle. This program teaches very little, if anything. I wish I had saved my money.

4-0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend
I bought this software after reading several reviews on the web and highly recommend it. Indeed, I had tried Rosetta Stone and other methods before, and this software is much better. I really liked the fact that there were so many different exercises. When I started, the translation icon was really useful, as well as the other icon which highlights words/sentences so you can listen to them, get the translation, and even pronounce them. I was very frustrated with other software as I could not get the translation. We created one account for each family member and are now all in the process of learning Spanish ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best ever!
I'm 11 years old and find the Rosetta Stone Chinese simply the best language learning method program out there. I have been using it for a while now and my Chinese teacher (Who is Chinese) Says I speak Chinese like a native, without an Australian accent! I find it fun and simple to use but very effective. It makes you associate the words with pictures that stay in your mind so you don't fall in the habit of translating everything.
2-0 out of 5 stars Learn Chinese, then practice with this program
Had I known then what I know now, I would have never bought this, at least not now.
5-0 out of 5 stars Delightful - I love it
I was originally using Rosetta Stone's Chinese program through online subscription.I went several times through the entire program before I decided that monthly subscription was getting expensive and since I enjoyed going over this program very much I finally decided to purchase it.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Program for English as a Second Language
When my cousin and her family arrived from Venezuela to join our family business, I knew that the first thing we needed to do was to teach them English. I asked around and found that the Rosetta Stone was the best program that they used in all the schools here in Miami. We bought the Level One and were soon amazed to see how fast my cousin and her seven year old daughter began to learn English. We all have a lot of fun with this program and it has so many beautiful pictures. Now my cousin is working with us and she is speaking English to the customers. We bought the Level Two which has even more lessons than the Level One, and some of the pictures are little movies! I would recommend the Rosetta Stone program to anyone who wants to learn English very quickly. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars VERY--I say VERY--basic
From the descriptions of the programmes on the box, I thought that this could be helpful--at least, that "Human Japanese" would. This is NOT the "quickest way to learn a language"; if it's quick, it's only because it teaches you very little.
1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible! Don't waste your money or your time.
Sorry it's so looong =D
1-0 out of 5 stars maybe good if you get something else,too
I'm not sure if this is the exaxt same product, because the one I have has 6 cd's in it, but it's Instant Immersion Japanese, so I'm going with it.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Dynamic Immersion method really works!
This is a great package! You get two CD-Roms, i.e. the application disk and the Course CD-Rom, a User's Guide book and the curriculum textbook with complete transcriptions of each exercise. The Dynamic Immersion method is fantastic. You learn a new language by playing with pictures, and little by little you learn new words, then simple phrases and finally more elaborate structures. The score you see on the screen helps you to improve by playing. In no time you realize to know lots of new words and phrases. I can only recommend you to buy it! Enjoy.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not very good
If I hadn't studied Swahili already, I would have found it utterly confusing after just a few lessons. As an intermediate student, however, it was fairly good for revision, but not worth the hefty price - had I been unwise enough to purchase it instead of trying the demo at Rosetta Stone's website. The first problem with it is that the language and pronunciation is very stilted and unnatural: it is technically accurate, but no native speaker would speak like this. More to the point, it doesn't accurately explain the noun classes of Swahili. I know it aims to do away with memorization and drill, but it becomes needlessly hard when one insists on learning a bantu language without first learning the various noun classes. Later on you're going to have difficulty figuring out why it's "ndege inaruka" and "vitu vitatu vinatoka" whereas it's "watu watatu wanatoka" and so on and so forth. I only tried the online version so I don't know if the CD comes accompanied by a grammar book. If it does, all good and great, but consider getting some Pimsleur lessons to smooth out that pronunciation. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great software to learn German
I bought this software before a trip to Germany. I found it very useful as I was able to get around for my trip. Activities are very good and engaging. An impressive feature is the speech recognition: the software comes with a headset and microphone and is able to grade your pronunciation. I fell it helped me a lot as German people were able to understand me! I already recommended it to some of my friends.

1-0 out of 5 stars It is more a game than a learning program.
This software is very difficult to study, you dont begin with the easy level instead you have to jump to a very complicated process of activities without an introduction; you will only learn some sentences, that one can use for travel and meeting people, that is all. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars There's no way anyone would learn to speak English
It's a waste of money, don't buy it. The phonetics tools are good, but there is no chance anyone would learn English with this 5-CDs version, and also is too basic for people who want to improve their English command. I've found better stuff for free in Internet.

1-0 out of 5 stars Instant Immersion English (5 CD-ROM set)
5 disks that are related in title only.Very difficult for non-english speaker to set up.Poor graphics.This is not for someone trying to learn English as a foriegn language. I'm here on Amazon to buy something different. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Pimsleur
Folks: the reviewer that mentioned Pimsleur was comparing the way the two companies APPROACH LESSONS.The language is irrelevant.And the reviewer was correct- Pimsleur's approach for language study is more like being in a high school class where you act like a parrot and simply learn memorize structure rules.The Rosetta products are much more effective because there are decision processes involved (among other things) that help you immerse yourself in the language vs repetition.

3-0 out of 5 stars What?
The previous commenter: Your stupid Pimsleur does not even have a Turkish program. Wake up before dropping a line!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Pimsleur.
Having taken the entire Pimsleur Spanish course and having begun Rosetta Stone Turkish (20 lessons so far), I prefer the Pimsleur approach for the following reasons:

4-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as previous versions
I just upgraded my Webster software to this version for WinXP.It's ok and does the job it's intended to perform. But I liked the previous versions that displayed both the definitions and the thesaurus in parallel panels. Just a matter of display preference, so it's not that important to every user.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great to use
This is a great productbecause once you install itYou need not use the cd again

1-0 out of 5 stars Not for anyone out of high school!
I was thoroughly disappointed.The first few words I looked up in the thesaurus were not listed -- words like upholstery!When I went online to see what I might be able to glean from their online site, first Fogware had not sent me a coupon, then I had to deal with bad customer service (I am not doing business with any companies anymore that give bad support) then after I finally got the coupon code they had left out of my box, the online info is exactly what we have in the cd -- so save your money and do not subscribe to their extended services site unless you need a spanish online dictionary also!VERY BAD!I am now going to go buy Roget's and check it out! ...

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.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent English Teacher - 24 / 7
This is an excellent piece of software, HANDS DOWN, a fantastic way to learn with your computer. It guides you through a series of activities, excercises and games and DRILLS YOU, yes, DRILLS YOU and recognizes your weak points. It will then attack your weak points in every possible way until you get stronger and LEARN. This is all done in a fun way, with interesting and enlightening activities, and the program is actually quite sophisticated. It comes with VOICE RECOGNITION and ANALYZING features, this means that it actually detects problems in your pronunciation and helps you correct them. It works with you, tirelessly, because it is a machine... [a live human would have to take a break] Another amazing feature of this software is that you are able to use it and take your lessons at any time of the day. So if you are like my wife, you arrive from work at 6 or 7 PM, TIRED, and you decide to have dinner with your family, and then at 9 PM start a one hour lesson, be done with it by 10 or 11 PM and then get to bed... and.... if you can't sleep, LOL, [like my wife] you can decide to give it 30 more minutes at 3:00 AM until you get sleepy again, YOU CAN.You don't have to wake up your teacher, LOL [ME], just turn your computer back on and TELL ME MORE knows where you left off...THANK YOU TELL ME MORE :D This is a happy CUSTOMER RIGHT HERE. I can sleep, n my wife can improve her ENGLISH. ... Read more
