2.0 out of 5 stars Great marketing, incomplete learning March 21, 2012
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
Rosetta Stone has some of the best marketing around when it comes to foreign language learning. Seriously, their ad with the farmer or whatever who learns the language of the hot foreign model? Great stuff. Even the boxes look sleek and awesome in the stores. But the actual product, in my humble opinion, leaves a lot to be desired.

Now, that 2 star rating up there is considering RS as a stand-alone tool; in other words, using it with no additional methods/tapes/books. RS will not get you to fluency, or even a basic level of proficiency, on its own. The reason is fairly simple -- it requires very little in the way of active thinking. The lessons are thinly veiled flashcards; when the same sentence is used with the same picture in 6 different segments (which are then repeated in the next segment as review), you end up learning only that phrase as it relates to that picture. In other words, you recognize what that sentence means, or what the missing word is. It does not, however, force you to do the hard thinking required in order to obtain proficiency; no translation, no conversation. You end up answering questions based merely on recognition of a word or two of vocabulary (i.e., the audio said 'uma mulher' and there is only one picture with 'uma mulher' despite that not being the issue being tested), or, even worse, your recollection from previous iterations of the 'card.'

My biggest beef with the program line, though, is that it makes you feel like you can achieve fluency with little actual work. This is not true. It's impossible. That doesn't mean it has to be boring, or difficult, but learning a language takes serious work. 30-60 mins a day, every day; using vocabulary flashcards; conversing; etc.

1.0 out of 5 stars WARNING: You don't really own this software. August 16, 2011
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
While the product itself is excellent, please make note of the following IMPORTANT restrictions - especially important considering how much this software costs:

1. The software comes with two activations. You MUST de-activate before uninstalling, or there is NO WAY to remove the activation. You have to call RS as part of the de-activation process. If your computer crashes, and you have used both acitvations, you have to call RS to have them add a new activation. While they will do this for free (generally), expect to be taken through multiple people who will be pitching other products, services and upgrades the whole way through - not exactly how one expects to be treated when paying this amount of money.

2. Don't expect to be able to re-sell this easily once you are done with it. I posted this item on Ebay when I no longer needed it, and it was removed for "copyright infringement" - even though it is a genuine boxed-set copy of the product. Essentially, they are saying you cannot ever transfer the license to somebody else. Again, not what you would expect from a product in this price range - and something that should be clearly stated when you are purchasing the product.

I'm not saying to avoid the product, but it would be useful and honest if such restrictions were made a bit more evident for a $400 product. Frankly, such draconian DRM should be avoided in general, especially since thieves have easy access to hacked versions of this software, which only makes life difficult for genuine, honest folks like us, while doing NOTHING to thwart piracy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good Marketing, Silly Product, Awful Customer Service November 7, 2012
By Tomas
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
God help you if you ever need to call Rosetta Stone Customer Service or Technical Support. They start with the assumption that you have hacked into their system.

That said, I took a trip to Salvador, Brazil, and can't point to one time that I used anything I learned from Rosetta Stone but found myself in conversations with people based on what I learned from Pimsleur tapes.

Rosetta Stone is a marketing powerhouse but they make a crappy product and their customer support, from the executive down, might be the worst in the country.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Product October 3, 2010
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
Ola!

I ordered this product in the hopes of being able to understand and converse with my Brazilian girlfriend's family (and her too, of course). Although expensive, you really do get what you pay for. Each level of Rosetta Stone (This one is 1-3 - Introduction through full blown conversation with opinions and expressions) has four units. Each Unit has four lessons. So if you bought this program overall, you would be purchasing essentially 48 lessons on Portuguese (3 x 4 x 4). If you spent a similar amount of money (in my area at least) you would get perhaps a semester's worth of Portuguese classes, and at the end maybe be able to do some basic translation and communication. Not so with Rosetta Stone! It's easy to use, very simple to pick up, and the interface is simple and has few options to confuse you. The program tracks your progress, so if you were weak on something the first time, it takes you back to it after a while to see if you have remembered it. You can do the program for as little as 5 minutes per session. No requirements to do it every day, and no tedious translations (Yay!)

In addition, you also get a headset for your Rosetta Studio sessions. At the end of each unit, you have a milestone activity (everything in that unit combined) and then a studio appointment online with a real language speaker. Now I have the opportunity to speak with a real Portuguese speaker every day, but if I was doing another language I might not. I love the accessibility and ease of use of this program.

Oh and did I mention the online games and stories that you can use?
