This version of the product I purchased was apparently a demo and so lacked the headphones and box although all of the CDs and materials were still vacuum packaged and in new condition. This had been disclosed by the seller and the item was sold at a substantial markdown. I would have liked to know it was version 3 instead of the current version 4. That being said, version 3 is not substantially different than 4 expect for some of the online content available in version 4. Again, for the price I paid, I'm very happy.

In my mind Rosetta Stone is an excellent way to learn a language quickly and without pain. I'm only about 1/2 way through French level one and it is astounding what you can learn in a very brief time. I'm also working on German in version 4. Having studied German in highschool and college (many years ago) the German is a little easier for me than the French is but that said, in just a few weeks I've surpassed much of what I could remember from German from school where it was taught the hard way.

My only complaint with Rosetta Stone is that I would like a book that reinforces the grammar rules that I am trying to pick up via osmosis from the Rosetta Stone method. Most of the stuff just seems to come to you but occassionally I find myself wondering if I really have it down.

Rosetta Stone is not cheap (unless you buy it like I did the French version) but I think if you need to learn the basics of a language quickly and in a fun way, this is really the route to go.

When the authorization code did not work several times, I contacted customer service. After a few weeks of going back and forth, they informed me that I'd bought the product from an unauthorized seller. Therefore, I am stuck with a Version 3 (outdated, which is why I thought it had been cheaper than Version 4). Unbeknownst to them, somehow one of the computers on which I placed the course bypassed the authorization, so I am now going through the course in Levels 3-5, despite the lack of an authorization code on that computer, which ironically does not have the authorization code for Irish either. I consider it turnabout fair play, although it was frustrating on the other computers to practice Irish, but not French.
My original intent was for Rosetta Stone to be part of a mix to improve my elementary French. There are many less expensive ways to learn a foreign language, with Fluent in Three Months (actually speak with natives, including Skype)and Glossika (read familiar stories in the target language out loud), just to name two. Once I finish Rosetta Stone, I intend to use my other sources of the language to practice the language further.
I found out my knowledge allowed me to move up to Level 5 with ease. However, the written part is more challenging, so I moved down to Level 3 to pick that part up and to clarify my pronunciation. I also recommend using other sources to explain the grammar, which can become confusing. Because we think in pictures, Rosetta Stone is a help to launch a language.
The French Version 3 erased my Irish Version 3, and Rosetta Stone allowed me to put it back on my computer. Both courses use similar situations, so I can jump to another language on the same level, because I already know from the French what the course entails.

Our twelve-year-old son has enjoyed using Rosetta Stone French so much that he even brought it on vacation. While driving down the interstates, I would often hear him in the back seat calling out the responses requested. Great software!

I recently was installing this product and had an issue. I contacted Rosetta and they sent the following response:

Rosetta tech support says this is counterfeit copy. They said that the registration code is one used in fake copies. Program installs without asking for the registration code because it was hacked, but it stops working after you run a routine software update. Rosetta says they will give me a legal statement saying so that will hold up in court.

The seller says "this is open box software. The registration code will not work, but it installs anyway." It is not open box, it is sealed, and the seller knows very well it is counterfeit, probably made in China. That's why its so cheap. I am demanding my money back and reporting them to Rosetta's legal department (which tech support requested I do).

DO NOT BUY!!
