The Keys to Successful Language Learning

1. You are having fun.
Research shows that when something is fun--you're playing, interacting, laughing--you're more likely to remember it because your brain is engaged. This is why we based our entire language-learning program around game-playing. Plus, when you know something is fun, it will keep you coming back again and again.

2. You are not overwhelmed.
We know the thought of learning a new language is overwhelming. This is why every one of our games can be completed in 10 minutes or less. Imagine your language-learning goal is a sandwich. You wouldn't cram it all in your mouth at once, would you? No. Sure, you'll finish it all, but one bite at a time.

3. You can fit it into your life.
We know you have a million things to do, and we recognize language learning is probably not the first thing on your to-do list (no matter how much we wish it was). This is why we give you a ton of different ways to learn, from computer games and audio lessons for your iPod to written activities in the workbook and interactive fun on your TV!

Don't get me wrong, Rosetta Stone is an amazing piece of software. It is; however, not the only method of learning another language. There are other options that work as well. Furthermore, there are other options that cost far less money than Rosetta Stone as well. Everybody is different, and everybody learns in different ways. While the Rosetta Stone software works for many, it is not the solution for everyone.

The Instant Immersion Spanish software seems to be an excellent alternative to Rosetta Stone. It cost far, far less money; and interestingly, it has a unique and novel formula for learning the language. Rather than just being a piece of software, it offers several other unique components - such as an interactive DVD, a 16 Disk MP3 disk that can be played in an MP3 CD player or on your iPod/iPhone (awesome!), plus a great video game designed to reinforce everything you've learned. As a whole, the Instant Immersion formula is definitely novel, and seems to work well.

As with any language software, a dedicated effort is still required to improve. You won't learn to speak Spanish simply by holding the Instant Immersion software box. As with any language, it's best to learn them through repetition and practice. Instant Immersion seems to give a greater opportunity for those activities than most software I've seen, including Rosetta Stone.

A couple of nitpicky points: Rather than carrying your identity through to each of the three levels of software, you re-create your identity each time. Further, each level seems entirely different from the last with little to draw them together in appearance. It doesn't take anything away from the lessons themselves though. Also, more printed documentation would be handy.

Those points aside - I really like this software, and look forward to further utilizing it to develop my Spanish.

Good for memorizing everyday phrases and words. There's no grammar to it - in case you were wondering, but that may not be a factor to you, depends on how you learn. If you want to speak the language just to get around, this is what you need, but if you want to speak Spanish fluently, this is just a good start. It seems easy to learn another language with this method; therefore, it motivates you to keep going.
Side note: it might be a bit difficult to recognize the accent of Spanish speakers here in the States since most of them are from Latin America. This software teaches with a Spanish accent from Spain.

If you are just starting out in Spanish this is worth the money. You can start with the flash cards, listen to how the words sound and then test yourself by recording how you say the word. I haven't found that it reviews your recordings to see if you say the word correctly, but trust me you will know when you hear yourself back. I like the interactivity of the software and DVD. I already speak a little spanish and used other systems before. I wouldn't say this system was the best, but it is in my top 3. I like how you can get a conversation like feel because the hardest part about learning any language is you might not have someone to practice speaking with. This will help you out with that problem. It is a lot cheaper than Rossetta Stone and I would say if you work at it, you will get the same results as Rossetta Stone. So give it a try.

I've used a lot of spanish language software. I've used Rosetta Stone, Pimsleur, My Spanish Coach, and some older more generic approaches.

It amazes me how expensive Rosetta Stone is. The software has gotten better in the last two years or so, but for a while, it was very glitchy and resource intensive for hundreds of dollars more than competitors.

Pimsleur takes a clever approach, where intro sessions are cheap, and the advanced stuff approaches Rosetta prices. But I've always found their approach very effective.

This is different. It's actually hard to describe concisely. You get a pretty good audio program. The pauses are a little long, but otherwise the main difference from this audio program and others is that the rules change. With Pimsleur, the guide will say something in English, and you repeat it in spanish. Forever. With this, they change it up just when your mind starts to wander. I think this is strong.

The software has memory style games that don't approach the smoothness or even structure of Rosetta Stone, but they do cover a lot of material anyway. Technologically, they look a great deal like software from the late 1990s. If you don't care about that, the software does its job. There are a lot of modern words regarding technology. Rosetta tries to include them too, but I think Instant Immersion did better.

One huge advantage this has over Rosetta is the DRM (security to prevent piracy) is not a hassle. With Rosetta (which I own a legit copy of) I've had problems getting my software to work. There are updates and security passes and it just gets a little old.

I used to recommend Instant Immersion to everyone, but not any more.

I've used Instant Immersion Deluxe 2.0 in the past and it was great. Much better than Rosetta Stone, at a fraction of the price. But this is a completely different product. Apparently they've bought out EuroTalk, slapped the Instant Immersion label on it, and discontinued what had been very good language-learning software. This is just audio flash cards. No grammar, no evaluation of your pronunciation (though it does let you record yourself and listen to yourself, for people who for some reason can't hear their own voices but can hear a speaker...)

On top of that, it doesn't work on Windows 7, even though the box says it does. I contacted the company and they suggested running in XP Compatibility Mode.

Furthermore, I had contacted the publisher before I bought this product and was assured it was Latin American Spanish. It is not. It is Cathhhtilian. And now the publisher is telling me it's not even available in Latin American version. Which means they lied to me the last time.
