5.0 out of 5 stars Skeptic won over November 6, 2010
By Darman
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
First off let me start by explaining the 2 Star review by Arthur Cholakis "a pilgrim". The product he is mentioning is NOT a core function of the language learning software. It is an added compendium and online learning area that gives you access to games and other learners. The actual teaching software DOES NOT expire after nine months. Thus this is only concerning the "Language-enhancing games; live online lessons;" product features listed. Not the whole product.

Now to my review; I have been interested in learning Irish for years, and did careful research on the Rosette Stone product to see if it is worth this hgih cost. I have learning disabilities and was concerned that the way it teaches may not be effective for my learning and thus I would be out a lot of cash for nothing. This however was not the case. This product is NOT a translation teaching product, it is a language teaching product. Thus if does not matter what language you speak, it teach's the language set (in the case Irish) you buy. So don't expect to need to learn English to Irish or Spanish to Irish kinds of changes. The software starts off be speaking to you and showing you pictures. You then begin speaking it back and matching the pictures to the words spoken. All in all it really reminds me of how we teach children to speak at young ages. Now that is not to say it is simplistic mearly that in the begining it starts you off slow and easy.

I am now just getting through the first half of level one, so there is obviously much more to learn and many features I have yet to see. But so far my experience with this product has been outstanding. If you truely wish to learn a language Rosette Stone seems to be a very good teaching software.

4.0 out of 5 stars good product, tough language. September 6, 2012
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
I took an Irish language course years ago and wanted to relearn and expand my knowledge. Really difficult language. I am used to romance languages. This one is tough. I bought Rosetta Stone Italian for my husband years ago and can tell that totale is an improvement on the older version of the program but some of the lessons are still hard to get through. I recommend the free trial on RS website before investing the money on the full version. What I found a little difficult is this; a picture comes up of say a woman holding flowers. Now you have to guess exactly what is going on in that picture in another language. When they show you a picture of and egg, you know the answer is egg, but other answers were not quite as easy. Is the answer "these are my flowers", "these flowers are for you" or "those are her flowers". Some things are easier to convey in a photo and some are not. I completely understand the point of immersion, but I personally may have to invest in dictionary and grammar books to fully comprehend this language. It's not as easy as it is portrayed on Tv. Yes, you will pick up a lot of vocabulary quickly, no you will not be fluent within a month.

5.0 out of 5 stars good program if used with a good grammar book April 13, 2014
By alicia
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
I've been using this program for three months and I'm halfway through the first level. I tried other programs but I had difficulty with the grammar exercises and I just couldn't seem to retain anything. The Rosetta program is good but you should buy a good grammar book and dictionary to go with it. It's a program that should be used with other tools. You can't expect to learn the language just using this. Having to translate the sentences myself seems to help me remember the words and grammar patterns much better. This is much more interesting than just sitting there memorizing everything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product July 5, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
Most of the negative reviewers don't seem to understand the concept of immersion based language. This is an excellent product, just make sure you understand what the immersion education style is before you buy. Immersion learning prevents you from having to think about things into your own language first before translating it in your head and speaking it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun way to learn a very difficult language August 21, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
I decided to attempt to learn the Irish language as a way to connect with my Irish heritage. I had been warned by several persons including an Irish literature scholar that it was a difficult language to master - they were right.

The Rosetta Stone process, though, made this minefield of complex grammatical structure fun to navigate: although it is a challenge it is an enjoyable challenge - I loook forward each day to using the product.

There are four cd's in the package: one for each of the learning levels and one for the audio downloads as mp3's. I recommend downloading the audio to an Ipod to practice listening and hearing Irish. Each of the three levels has four units and each unit has a few dozen lessons ranging from core lessons that take over one half of an hour to vocabulary drills that take minutes. The user starts simply with brief introductions and greetings then progresses to conversation.

I look forward to reading some ancient texts in this old celtic language of my ancestors and to use Irish day to day just for fun (to do lists, shopping lists, etc.).

This is my third Rosetta Stone language - I started with French (not so easy) and moved to Italian (much simpler) then to Irish. I am thinking of learning a language that requires learning a new alphabet (or a language that uses symbols and NO alphabet). Possible candidates are Farsi, MSA or Mandarin - I know RS will be there for me :)
