4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use software August 27, 2010
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc| Edition:Spanish (Latin America)|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've always considered myself a bit of a language idiot. I barely scrapped by in French 1, and I don't think I ever passed Spanish 2. Honestly, I know I just didn't put that extra special effort in. I was in high school and though eager to learn a new language, when it turned out to be not as easy as I expected, I pretty much gave up. Now, at almost 30 years old, I still always wish I had really mastered a language.

First, I'm going to give you my language know-how so you can see if we might be on similar levels. My biggest problems are tense, plurals, conjugation, the whole male/female thing(o or a?). Just all around construction of a sentence. I can pick up words, I know numbers and food, hello, goodbye, please and thank you: the general stuff. While I'm not good with speaking, I can usually get by reading menus or maps. I'm visual, I can get the gist from a native speaker if they don't talk too fast, but forget my response, I probably sound like a caveman...for instance, recently I was in Spain. I needed a train ticket for December 2nd to Madrid. I smiled at the guy(showing him my silent plea of forgiveness for butchering his beautiful language)and said "El Tren billete, Diciembre dos, Madrid" So I said December two instead of December 2nd... I knew he'd be able to figure me out, but I also knew I sounded like a buffoon.

When I got the software for Level 1 Rosetta Stone, I was really excited. I had a little trouble getting my computer to load it, but after 10 or so minutes of trying different things, it loaded up and I got started. One thing I particularly like is that they judge your actual speaking voice and pronunciation, via a microphone headset included, that is plugged in by USB.

Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc| Edition:Spanish (Latin America)|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I am usually not the greatest at language. I took three years of Spanish in high school and blew through one disappointing semester of French in college, since I was studying European literature and wanted to know a main language besides Spanish connected with that. I've tried learning Italian and Gaelic (yes, Gaelic) on my own with books and also on trips abroad. But unless you have a relative or friend who is a nature speaker, it can be hard to practice. Even more so if you want to pay for a college course for a refresher. I do believe Rosetta Stone bridges this gap for the person who doesn't want to go back to college to learn this or perhaps a person who needs to learn basic Spanish for a job.

At first, I had a hard time installing this on my desktop. I've bumped this down to four stars because you can't install it on more than one computer, so I had to choose between computers. This, I didn't like at all. For the price of this program, you should be able to install it on both a work and home computer. I wish there was a way to validate your purchase so you could do this. I do notice another person with a MacMini had some of the same problems I did getting it installed. In the end, I felt it should have been more easier to do. I am not sure if my computer was the problem or maybe I didn't get good disks that can be read well. I was happy to find out, however, you can have up to five people on your one computer learning, which is nice. I can share it with my boyfriend, who also wants to learn.

The lessons, however, are very good. I was taught in high school and college in the same way, which is nice. It is advantageous for me to use this over taking a class at my local college since I can do it on my own time. I can also make mistakes without getting an F.

Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc| Edition:Spanish (Latin America)|Verified Purchase
this is one of the most expensive self learning tool I would say. to start things off, you only have 3 months to learn and use the program. Anything over 3 months, you gotta pay MORE MONEY to have an access or to finish/redo the program.

that is just a smart business on their side, but a business I do not want to deal with ever again

Rosetta Success saysFebruary 6, 2013
Hello Hun Jae Lee,

The Version 4 CD program includes a trial feature of the supplemental online features (Rosetta World and Rosetta Studio), such as games, stories and Rosetta Studio sessions with native speakers of your new language. Once that trial period expires, you still have access to Rosetta Course, the foundation of your language learning experience. One level of Rosetta Course includes four Units, and each Unit includes a variety of lessons to teach you your new language.
In one level, you'll have access to 16 different Core Lessons, which are 30 minute lessons that introduce new material: new vocabulary, new sentence structures and new grammar points. In addition to the Core Lessons, there are also focus activities which usually take 5-10 minutes to complete. Each focus activity helps to reinforce a specific skill set, such as vocabulary, pronunciation, speaking, listening, reading, writing and review activities. The number of focus activities per level varies, depending on which curriculum you choose. In my standard curriculum, I have over 100 focus activities in the first Level. At the end of each Unit there is a Milestone activity which simulates a real conversation in your new language.

I hope this helps to better explain how Rosetta Stone works, and if you need any assistance accessing your Rosetta Stone program please feel free to submit a case at http://success.rosettastone.com/ We would be more than happy to help!

3.0 out of 5 stars Expensive, rarely updated, and behind-the-times June 15, 2011
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc|Edition:Spanish (Latin America)
They say you can run a retail business two ways: charge a lot and have only a few customers, or charge as little as possible and make it up in volume. Rosetta Stone has the former business model, and then some. Its price is, in a word, indefensible.

This product was not that difficult to make. Its technology amounts mostly to showing you pictures, playing sounds, and having you click certain places. And yet, it's hundreds of dollars just for a few modules. Worse yet, upgrades are not free and while this product would be ideal to use either over-the-web or on a smartphone, neither option is available, nor will it be until Rosetta Stone gets some real competition. As it stands, you're tied to your desk, with only a supplemental iPad app available (Android, Blackberry, and other tablets are out of luck!).

Despite their general state of being caught long in the past, the lack of innovation in each release, and their shocking price tag, Rosetta Stone is *still* probably the best language learning software you can get, and it does help you get the vocabulary and conjugation down, mostly through repetition. That isn't so much an endorsement of Rosetta Stone, however, as it is a statement about the utter lack of competition they face.

Hopefully soon someone will knock Rosetta Stone from its complacent place at the top of the hill, but that day has not come yet. You should buy this product, but don't feel good about it.
