Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I am thoroughly enjoying my Rosetta Stone TOTALe (pronounced toe-TAH-lee) French software. I did once use a two week trial of Rosetta Stone Spanish (not TOTALe), and although I enjoyed it, the TOTALe course is many times better.

The TOTALe course has four parts: Rosetta Stone Course, Rosetta Stone World, Studio and Audio CD's. The Studio and World are what sets this apart from the regular Rosetta Stone course. They are absolutely phenomenal. More on that later.

_________________________________

Before I delve into the actual course, here are some interesting facts you might like to know.

AGE RESTRICTIONS AND MULTIPLE LEARNERS

This software can only be installed on one computer. However, I was able to add my two children to the software course. According to the Rosetta Stone customer service department, I can add up to five users to the Rosetta Stone course, as long as they use the same computer.

My children cannot access the Rosetta World, because they are under 13. I changed my son's age to show him older than 13 and found that he could not access Rosetta World because only one user is allowed to use Rosetta World. However, I was given the option to purchase Rosetta World access for him at a *very* reasonable price.

ACCESS FROM MULTIPLE COMPUTERS

Although I could only access the Rosetta Stone Course from the one computer it's installed on, I can access Rosetta Stone World from any computer with an internet connection by simply signing in on their website.

Personally, I like Rosetta Stone World interface when accessing it directly from the software on my computer rather than through my Internet Explorer. Signing in is much quicker.

3.0 out of 5 stars Is Rosetta Stone right for *you*? September 14, 2010
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I highly recommend an honest self-assessment before beginner level self-taught language products such as Rosetta Stone.

* Foremost, do you have the self-motivation? You're paying for Levels 1, 2, and 3. Will you be motivated enough to make it to the end of Level 3, or will your enthusiasm plummet after the first few lessons? If you're in the first group, then you can get so much out of Rosetta Stone. If you're in the second group, you may want to look at your local community college's courses. It might cover less material while costing as much, but if you aren't confident you have the self-motivation, then it might be better than Rosetta Stone.

* Second, is the "immersion" model of language learning right for you? Children are sponges for languages. Children who move to a foreign country soon become more fluent than their parents. They learn just by being immersed among people speaking that language.

Rosetta Stone tries to replicate that language acquisition in adults. Their philosophy is, if we talk to you only in that language, you will learn it. The thing is, adults aren't just large children, though they may act that way :) Around puberty, the brain's language learning centers undergo a major change that makes it much harder to learn a new language, especially through immersion. For some people, that change is greater than for others. Some people can still pick up a good chunk through immersion, while others require language classes that incorporate both languages.

Which group are you in---the group that can still pick up a good chunk through pure exposure, or the group that learns better from classes that incorporate both languages? A good test is to spend some time watching a foreign language channel.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unacceptable copy protection September 1, 2010
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Let's say you have a laptop, your wife has a laptop, and your children use a family computer. You, as a family are going to learn French and decide to spend $600 on Rosetta Stone ($800 if you decide to include Levels 4-5 in your purchase).

You will not be able to use this product on all three computers. End of story. This is unacceptable. I will not say one positive thing about a company that denies Right of First Sale to its users, and who actively does not allow installation of its software on (a reasonable number of) multiple computers.

If you can look past being treated like a criminal instead of a customer after paying the better part of $1000 for a piece of software, then go for it. The software will get you started towards learning French. But God forbid you want to install it on a couple of computers, or if you buy a new computer and have to reinstall. You'll spend a couple of hours of your life playing customer service roulette, begging an offshore call center to allow you to install a third copy of the software.

Even Microsoft is more lenient than this. Stay away.

1.0 out of 5 stars Save your money. November 11, 2011
By GVL
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
Over all the idea isn't bad (although the interface interaction and voice recognition need work), but for the price I paid (and asked for a refund) I think the over all amount of content is extremely slim. For $400.00 USD and levels 1-3 (out of 5) I expect to have 3/5ths of the French language at my finger tips and instead I got the first few weeks of French 101 and the same basic stuff over and over again (and most of that wasn't of much use).

Do yourself a favor and go online instead - plenty of good videos and games to help you learn French.

Regards
