Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Having had some experience with previous Rosetta Stone lessons, I can say with certainty that the "TOTALe" program is a step-up in quality and value. The biggest change you'll find is that you now get live online lessons with a native speaker included in the program. I've only had two lessons so far, but in general they have been very helpful. You cannot speak English at all during the lessons, so if you're just starting out in the learning process it might be a bit awkward or frustrating. Eventually, however, things should run smoother and the benefits of working directly with a native speaker are numerous. There are also online games you can play with others learning the language. From my experience so far, there haven't been many people to play with, but it seems this is because the program is so new. The few games I have participated in have been enjoyable.
Other than that, the core program is very similar to the "version 3" Rosetta Stone lessons I am familiar with. If you have an extremely difficult time getting directly immersed in a new language, then Rosetta Stone is simply not for you. If, however, you are looking for the most multi-faceted, in-depth immersion experience possible, Rosetta Stone's TOTALe is exactly what you're looking for.
