    Editorial Review

    "Not too long ago, Zoombinis enjoyed the good life. Though they alllooked slightly different--different eyes, noses, hair, feet--such differencesmeant nothing to the Zoombinis. And so they lived happily on Zoombini Isle,making small, useful products, which were prized the world over." So begins anunsuspectingly addictive CD-ROM, featuring uncommonly fun reasoning games thatrequire serious problem solving and math-thinking work. Yet the perils that facethis cheerful society are not as fearsome as the amount of time you'llpotentially spend on this pursuit. Beware the chubby, chattering Zoombinis ifyou don't want to get hooked to your computer for at least 90 minutes asession!Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Why I like Zoombinis
    Hi, my name is Manuel, I am 6 years old and I like Zoombinis a lot because of all the adventures they go through to pass activities and discover new lands. I also like them because the stories are very exciting.
    5-0 out of 5 stars So much fun!
    This is one of the very few computer games where there are no glitches. The graphics, sound, and over all logic of this game are wonderous. Though some people may say it is for younger kids- they are wrong, my olmost fourteen year old cousin loves it- and even adults like it! It's not the same puzzle over and over agin either- clear directions and changing goals and directions give this game a little lift. There is so much more I could talk about with this game- but I don't want to bore you- overall this game is great!

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love'd this game!
    I was probably 14 when I played Zoombinis. My aunt had it for my cousins and well for her too, and thought that I would really like it. Not only do you learn and have fun it's so addicting. The best part about it is that you don't even realize you are learning. I am now 24 and recently purchased the game for myself. Not because I need a refresher course but because I enjoyed it so much. I think that this is a great game for the classroom. I've encouraged many of my friends that educate to install into their classrooms. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Combined with lessons this is very good
    I agree with other reviewers. This software should be combined with other lessons. It was very helpful, and I would recommend it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excelent for beginners!!!
    I am fluent in Spanish. So, the Rosetta Stone Italian language software, was perfect for me. It is very easy to understand, to follow and to learn. If you study one hour per day, in one week you are going to remember several words and phrases. I don't have any regret at all, I think my investment was worthwhile.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not exactly top notch but it will get you there
    This review might be alittle hard on the product but I wasnt impressed.Expecting something revolutionary instead the lessons were kind of like going though High School again with one big exception.They dont give you a writen translation of what every thing means.Rossetta Stone focuses on pictures and the actual sounding out of words spoken.In the program you are presented a picture and in Italian a narrator tells you what is going on or what the picture is.However what he is saying is not directly translated in written words.Its up to you to figure out what he is saying based on what you see in the pictures.So pretty much you are not sure at times which words spoken are verbs or nouns.They do their best to single out the verbs in which they give you multiple pictures of ppl performing the same actions.However still its up to you to figure that out.Other than that its a great program.It forces you to pronounce italian with an italian accent using the pictures you see.You are able to write italian sentences using the same technique (still no english translation).I chose a language I already knew to try the program out.If I was a true beginner...I might have a hard time learning this language and I would by far not be fluent in it.Thats for sure. ...

    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.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Stellar for Speaking, Listening; Poorly Adapted to Chinese for Writing and Reading
    Before I review the excellent Rosetta Stone software, I should make a general disclaimer about the Chinese Language: it is not a language you should try to learn independent from a class. The pronunciation and writing system are such that you are likely to fossilize a lot of errors at the very beginning if you do not have real instruction to help you along. Furthermore, the writing system is best learned in a class. So, this program is best used in conjunction with a class or after already having taken some. Otherwise you are likely to be quickly overloaded & lost by this program.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Good for speaking -- not so good for reading and writing
    Relative to many of the other languages offered through Rosetta Stone, the Mandarin package is very good. Rosetta presents all material using the continuous tense (e.g., "The boy is running;" "The girl is laughing.") -- this is not conducive to learning how to conjugate verbs, which, in my mind, would make learning how to effectively use a lanuage very difficult. But in Mandarin, there is no conjugation of verbs, which makes learning through the continuous tense just fine.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Immersion Program
    The idea behind this is to help you learn a new language the way you learned your first one: Repetition.There is NO English.This is not like classroom learning with vocab. memorization and grammar charts.You just jump in and do the lessons over and over until you finally 'get it.' It's a lot like being a baby, but that's how you learned English- right?

    1-0 out of 5 stars Learning Japanese is hard and Rosette Stone make it harder.
    This softeware is full of crap.Excuse my language but It doesn't work.I would have given no star if I could...I heard about it on tv. Then I went online to do more research and it said one of the company I work for use it.I figure it a big corporation like mine using it then it worth a try.I went to the mall on day and saw it in a kisok and then purchase the two hundred dollar software.Well anyway after I tried it for 5 mins I hated it.I got luck because they do give 6 month refund period.Also got luck because I check my credit card and was not charged for the item yet it been two months.Hopefully that new cashier really did it wrong unless they are going to charge me on the 6th month.Anyway save me time from having to return it.Basically why It sucks is because it teach you like your mother or father would teach you from birth. It shows you picture and then says the words.The only thing is the words you learn are worthless. Like horse, pig, airplane.There no translations you basically have to look at the picture and figure out what they trying to tell you. I got frustrated very quickly and you can choose between romanji, kanji, katana but if you don't know what they are saying you get lost. They do teach you character reading.They teach you words only no solid phrase.I don't know learn how to saying a boy is sit on the table or a boy in an airplane does me any good. For your sake save your money.What I found out is that [...]is very good so If you trying to learn japanese go there it worth a try.If you don't want to continue membership they make it easy for you to cancel on the website.You don't have to hunt it down.Also What I like is if you don't want to do a monthly membership you can do a trial period and then print the material or try to save then on the a pdf file.Only part about that is you can listen to the words or phrase but what the heck give that a try it only 10 bucks and not two hundred bucks.Try that better.It a better step by step approach.Not picture and guess.I am in no way connect to [...]. I just search and found this website.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Pictures don't always speak words...
    I just tried doing the demo and thought it was absurd.What's the point of learning words and the pronunciation if you have no idea what the words mean.It's not good enough to think you know what they're saying.I looked at the 4 pictures and thought of numerous interpretations.Does the software that you get actually tell you?Is the demo picture "the man running", "a boy and girl walking"???It doesn't make any sense to learn just words and not the vocabulary the same way you learned your own language as a child. Especially for a language like Japanese where it's Very important to use the right sentance structure and putting the right empahasis on vowels and constantants in the right place. Just like English two words spelled the same can have totally different meanings if the vowel is dragged out.How can you possibly learn the language if you don't know in advance that I is pronounded e and U pronouned oo. I just don't understand how this method of teacing can help someone to Learn the language. This is no different that a tape that asks you to listen and repeat words.Pictures are fine but a written workbook works just as well.I don't need to see a picture of an apple to relate it to what's being spoken.Four pictures with a girl and boy walking, a black man running, a white woman running and kids walking doesn't make the translation easier than "reading" what the translation is.
    4-0 out of 5 stars A good supplemental program
    Personally, I feel this program would be great for students already in a Japanese class.It has greatly improved my abilities to listen and pronounce Japanese, and has also given me reading and writing practice.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent and different way to learn a language
    I've studied four foreign languages in virtually every possible way of learning a language.Rosetta Stone's approach is a very nice combination of matching pictures with words in the language you're learning, with plain old (but very effective) brute repetition.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Well Worth the Money, Some Annoying Quirks.
    Overall, Rosetta Stone Russian is an exceptionally useful tool to enhance learning of Russian. The pictures are well chosen, I found the pacing to be just right and I truly believe someone could get to an intermediate level just using the software. This is pretty amazing considering how difficulty Russian is for a native English speaker with minimal exposure.
    5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Language Tool
    I've owned this program for several months now and have enjoyed it immensely. It's fun and easy to use. My method is of course to keep a Russian/English dictionary handy to help learn new vocabulary.

    This is actually a review for more than one product (Pimsleur and Rosetta Stone)
    1-0 out of 5 stars No comparison to Tell me More software
    I have many (too many) Rosetta Stone softwares for language learning, however after purchasing "Tell Me More" software I will never go back to Rosetta Stone. It is true that you can learn a lot of vocabulary with Rosetta's program but that is about it! Rosetta's software is very illogical! Honestly, do not waste your time and money with this program, check Tell Me More and you will be amazed!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Price...
    The price alone is what makes this product a rip-off. On it's own, Rosetta Stone is great...I mean, it's probably one of the most effective and easily accessible vocabulary learning tools on the market. However, the value of this package is not more than...60-70 bucks. 150 is a fair price for the entire 2 level package.

    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.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not the Fastest Way to Learn a Language
    Fairfield's marketing is much better than their engineering.There are eight units with 11 or 12 lessons each.Each lesson has 10 parts.And each part has 4 phrases or sentences, arranged as picture (or cartoon) squares (sometimes related, sometimes not).In the preview for each each part, one selects a square and the phrase is uttered.Unfortunately the Hebrew is plastered on top of the picture, thereby preventing certain details from being decipherable.There is no English translation provided, nor are there any grammar lessons.One cannot click on a word to get its meaning.So what happens is that one has to make a guess as to the meaning, which may or may not be correct.In the guided exercises, the program rapidly goes through each of the four pictures, then you get quizzed.In the speaking section, you must mimic the speaker as best you can--but the Hebrew phrase is not displayed on the screen.Even worse, the voice frequency display does not readily halt.All in all, this product needs a lot of work before I will recommend it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent teaching tool!!!!
    This learning course does not allow you to go away from it without learning the language intuitivly...at least if you accually use it:)

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Program for Learning Hebrew
    Although I did know some basic Hebrew, this program has begun to teach me Modern Hebrew in a very effective way.I definitely would recommend it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Manage your expectations
    I went through Arabic level one with the online version, and I found it fairly useful.After reading other reviews, I would caution shoppers to be realistic about their expectations...Rosetta Stone uses learning techniques similar to those used by a child learning their first language, so it's a good idea to remember how that actually went.It's pretty likely that your first "formal" education in your native language started at about age 5...after you had been immersed in the language EVERY DAY for FIVE YEARS.If you expect to reach a similar level of proficiency in a language with a completely different alphabet and different sentence constructions after taking an entry-level immersion course, you are going to be disappointed.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Useless on its own, powerful if used with other material
    If you don't understand the Arabic alphabet, this will be useless. But if you get a dictionary and learn the alphabet, this is the best software you can get.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good when in conjuction with other materials
    The Rosetta Stone software can be very useful to the learning and study of arabic as long as you use it in conjuction with other materials. Rosetta Stone Arabic teaches Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), which is a more academic and universal form of arabic as it is based on the written language. This differs from colloquial dialects which are rarely written and can differ greatly n different regions. The materials I used, and in fact are still using, are the Rosetta Stone software along with The Arabic Alphabet, by Nicholas Awde and Arabic for Dummies, by Amine Bouchentouf. These materials cover all the general subjects required for the learning of MSA. The Arabic Alphabet covers the alphabet and does an excellent job and should be covered before the use of the Rosetta Stone software. The Rosetta Stone software itself is essential to the building up of a vocabulary. It starts with basic nouns and then building on them and then forming sentences by adding verbs and adjectives.Through this method you begin to understand the structure and grammar of the language, however without further instruction it can be hard to define exactly what the grammatical structure is. The software, however, is weak on the fact that it does not teach the alphabet, it only shows it in conjuction with the media which it is teaching through. It also does not cover conversational abilities. You may be able to say, "The small boy kicked a black and white ball inside a large house and broke a window", but you won't be able to say "Hello, my name is x". Luckily the other two materials cover these apects. Arabic for Dummies provides an excellent introduction to MSA along with having a simple yet informative coverage of arabic grammar. Arabic for Dummies also supplies the converasational aspect as it includes 17 chapters covering most everyday situations. However this book avoids using the arabic alphabet although it gives a brief introduction of it. Because of this I recommend that this book come first as it provides a solid introduction and shows you exactly what your getting into. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars A good program, but restrictive
    I like this program.The accent is great and it is very easy, even fun to follow, and it teaches the language well - it is very natural so that thought comes in the language rather than an attempt to make a fast mental 'translation.'
    5-0 out of 5 stars Best way to learn a language
    The Rosetta Stone method is simply the best way you could possibly learn any foreign language.By removing the slow, deliberating step of English translation from the process of language comprehension, it teaches Latin to you the way it should be taught.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great supplement for those learning Latin
    I am a linguist and have purchased six of Rosetta Stone's language programmes. I have found them to be excellent supplemental tools in aquiring foreign languages. Without translations, your mind is forced to rely upon context (visual and verbal) to extract meaning. The repetive phrases ranging from one or two words to an entire paragraph engrain a syntactical map of how sentence structures are fabricated. I found that the more you work these lessons, the better they work for you. Repeating the phrases out loud each time after the speaker is much more powerful than simply listening.

    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.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for Beginners to Low-Intermediates
    We use this in our language lab for our ESL students. The students who put forth the effort to work on Rosetta every week get higher TOEFL scores than those who don't. The software focuses on most aspects of language learning--speaking,listening, and reading. It also has a neat feature called Speech Comparison, where it shows a wave form of a sentence and, after recording the student's voice, compares the two wave forms, which gives a visual representation of how close the student's pronunciation is to the native speaker's.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Rosetta methods
    I also use Rosetta for Russian and find that the system works for me because it offers a totally different type of learning.The immersion method uses interesting pictures, progressions, at least 4 different methods or combinations of ways to learn to attract visual learners, auditory learners and those who learn by writing. I had a chance to update my Rosetta system and found that the next version was even better than the first as some small details got greater attention. For me, it is like playing one of the complicated computer games - it is exciting and interesting to advance through each successive level of each unit. The technology never gets in the way of the content.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Some Instructions PLEASE!!!!!!!!
    I like the Rosetta Stone method but the product does not come with any instructions.I mean it has a user guide but it does not tell you what to do or how to do anything.It describes the setup of the program but does not tell you to start some place and finish some place.The product would be more helpful if it said to go to lesson 1 and follow these steps.I find myself hopping all over the place and getting lost.You can see that it is a good product, I just don't know which is the most effective way to use it!!!!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars About as good as language software can be
    First, the Rosetta Stone system is a good one.It uses exercises that combine pictures, words, and audio to teach a language.You can choose whether to focus on general learning, reading, listening, speaking, or writing.The software runs well overall, though I have had some problems with slow startup and instability when doing speaking exercises ... but I'm using an Intel-based Mac and the software is running in PowerPC emulation in the current version.I believe that more stability will come soon.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Great, but one major flaw.
    This program, simply put, is great! The concept behind it is so simple, yet it so effective.The student can never get bored because there are always new drills, new phrases, new pictures, and new exercises.

    4-0 out of 5 stars For Mature Audiences!
    I've been using EazySpeak Spanish for about a week now and find it HIGHLY enjoyable and amusing. I do, however, have to agree with other reviews in that it is not for children. I was a little surprised at the semi-nudity of the characters and how, in one exercise, one bikini-clad female had semi-circles in her chest region to suggest nipples. Also, elsewhere in the program, one is introduced to the Spanish words for beer, rum, brandy, cigarettes, and various types of wine. All of these topics should be off-limits to a 12 year-old, which, the box claims, EazySpeak is suitable for.
