Unfortunately.... it is saddled with the most onerous copy protection I have yet encountered. It is so dreadful that it drops my rec straight from 5 star to 2 star.
Basically you can only install it twice. Hard drive dies? That counts as one. Upgrade your OS? Counts as one. There is a "de-activate" function which supposedly returns one of the licenses, but you can only do that if you remember beforehand, or there is not a technical difficulty that prevents it. The one time I was in a position to try the "de-activate" feature it did not return the license.
After you run out of your two installs you then have to call their technical support for each and every install after. If you are a tech type who upgrades systems and OSes frequently this literally results in HOURS of extra overhead spent on the line with indian tech support to get your licenses reinstated. Hope you kept your proof of purchase all that time as well, without it you now have a $200 yellow coaster.
Rosetta Stone also provides great online support opportunities like games, one-on-one conversations with native speakers, and additional reading materials.
I recommend Rosetta Stone to anyone who wants to learn to speak a new language but finds traditional classrooms intimidating and has trouble remembering translations.
It's important to realize that when using Rosetta Stone, you are not supposed to completely understand the words/phrases when you hear them the first time, or even the second or third. You're not supposed to know the answers before the software asks you to interact. Rosetta Stone forces your mind to grasp at possible meanings until you puzzle it out, and when you do finally puzzle it out, a light bulb flashes on and true comprehension takes place.
Rosetta Stone integrates failure and 'learning by trial and error' directly into the program which, for me, makes the vocabulary and usage far more concrete in my head than being told what something means then picking it out of a list. What good does that do?
If you pay attention to the pictures and the context in which they are displayed, you really can intuit the meanings of the words and phrases. After you fail to choose the correct answers then finally get it right, this stuff will be burned into your memory because you've been actively engaged in the 'discovery of the language. Exactly like a kid does. Exactly what Rosetta Stone claims.
To summarize: you can't sit there and passively learn the language. Rosetta Stone won't download it into your brain. You have to actively interpret what you're seeing with what's being said in the new language. It's amazing how much language and nuance can be assimilated in this way.
