1.0 out of 5 stars #1 in Language Learning Software!? March 18, 2010
Verified Purchase
Where does one begin? It seems that the people behind this software had trouble grappling with the same question, because you start up and there's no real method. There's a bunch of stuff, a lot of French, but real teaching interface. It seems like I got all the drills that were meant to go with some main program. I read the user manual and all it says is that beginners should start with the lessons workshop. OK, sounds good. But where are the lessons? So far as I can tell, their teaching method in "the next generation of language instruction" is to have you read a French-English glossary until you feel answering questions in French. There's a $2 French English dictionary you can get on amazon called 1001 Most Useful French Words if you feel that browsing a glossary is the best way to learn a language. Don't get me wrong, a glossary or dictionary can be one of the most important tools to supplement language learning, but it shouldn't be where you learn a language from.

This review might sound ridiculous given what the company claims about their product, but I am not exaggerating. Let me take you through the first steps of using this software if you don't believe me.
The nice flash animation at start up makes you think that this product has potential, and there is a nice little sign in box. Then the home page loads up, this is where it all goes down hill. You are greeted by a "tips" box that you can choose to have come up on start up with a new tip every time. The thing is, there are only 9 tips, and they tell you what the options button does, what the next activity button does, what the help button does, what the next exercise button does, and how to click and drag words, etc. No substance or guidance at all. Every item on the list is self explanatory.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not well structured August 13, 2008
I'm still struggling to find how to navigate the lessons in this package. I had expected something that would provide a structured set of lessons that would help me learn French. What I've found so far is a loosely bound set of tools and disjointed exercises. While it may be possible to learn French with this package, it's going to require a lot of work on my part just to figure out the best way to use the materials. I'm somewhat disappointed and wondering whether I should have bought a more expensive package that would have "taken me by the hand" and taught me French.

5.0 out of 5 stars pretty good.... January 11, 2009
By ellafan
...but there are better,albeit MUCH more expensive programs to buy.
This particular course of study is pretty thorough,and is interesting and as it says,you are immersed in the language...which is the best way to learn a foreign language.I also watch French movies and documentaries,without the subtitles first,then with,and I also buy books to read which are in French and English,side-by-side,parallel text.
However,if you can't see springing almost 400 bucks for that other language course,this one is a pretty good alternative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great learning system October 7, 2008
I'm headed to Europe later this winter on business for a month and wanted to learn some basics to help me get by. Even if you're obviously an American, I've found if you make an effort, the locals treat you a lot better. I'm headed to Southern France, Spain and then up to Germany, so I got all three languages. The thing I really like about these programs is the different approaches included in each. The software program is very step-by-step. I found the pedagogy easy to follow and intuitive. I suggest starting with the main software program. It even critiques your speaking with a microphone, so if you don't have one, it is worth the $20. It helps with pronunciation and I'm learning to communicate, not just be able to read. The DVD included is also good. It is a little lighter than the software program, but is fun and reinforces some of the things I learned. The audio CDs are a very important part. I put them on when stuck in traffic and find the repetition is very effective. I also like the game included as it is fun and is helping me along. My French and Spanish are getting to a comfortable speaking level and I'll be onto German in-time for my trip.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not that helpful August 24, 2009
This package expects you already have some knowledge of french. The Audio CDs are quite useless as all you do is listen and repeat. The Program itself is badly structured and it's very hard to find the lesson you are looking for. In fact even if you start on beginner level and click on any less it automatically give you questions in french, it does not show you french verbs or how to conjugate them, and the voice recognition is terrible. The interactive DVD had some useful features such as phrases and greetings but it wont get you very far. All in all this is a badly structured product, with very little lessons to offer if you want to learn French this is not the way to do it.

1.0 out of 5 stars I hated this! March 19, 2010
Verified Purchase
After opening the box, with no instructions, I thought, "Gee, I'm smart, I can figure this out." HA! One of the DVD's didn't play, and I couldn't get the game started. The CD's sound horrible. What little I was patient to play with was BORING.

This program isn't cohesive at all; it seems to be a bunch of programs packaged together without an overall plan. I really don't think anyone could actually learn a language from this.

It starts with vocabulary words -- fair enough, you have to start somewhere. But some of them are really dumb for introductory language learning: How often does hippopotamus come up in conversations? Then phrases are thrown at you with no explanation at all and no build, ie, learning each word so the sentence makes sense. And without learning the pieces, all you're doing is memorizing sounds. And what good is it to learn "Where is the bank?" if you have no chance of understanding the answer?
