UPDATE: AUGUST 23, 2013
I see that Amazon has updated the description slightly with this sentence, "Enhance your learning on-the-go with Rosetta Stone mobile apps for the Kindle Fire HD, iPad and iPhone. Three month access included with purchase." I personally think it is still obscure since the part about the mobile companion is much farther down in the description but at least it is something.
I'm very sorry to hear about this negative experience, and would love to help turn this around for you. Do you have a reference number from any of your interactions with us so that I can look into this?
Thank you, and I hope to hear from you soon
- Builds a LOT of vocabulary quickly
- Helps understand what words mean by associating them with a concept, rather than translating
- Internet community is pretty cool.
- Doesn't focus on grammar at all
- Level 1 doesn't contain a whole lot
- It's obviously pretty expensive. I guess if you're *really* interested, it's worth it.
For it's purpose, it is almost perfect software. You will feel confident with the basics after this.
Ok, overall the program is good. This was my first experience with Rosetta Stone software and I like it. They really did one heck of a job making learning fun and easy. I highly recommend the software if you want to learn a second language, it looks like it is a good product. I would definitely try other languages after seeing just how easy it is to use this stuff.
What didn't I like?
For starters the headphones and microphone that came with it are NOT quality, they are not comfortable and my ears got really hot. It was like wearing styrofoam balls over my ear[...]. Sure wish they headphones were at least padded better. The microphone seemed to work well, my only gripe here is the comfort of wearing it. And if you follow this program you will wear it a lot!
Second, it took nearly 30 minutes for me to install the software. I understand software piracy but between the lengthy install process, having to scratch off a 28 digit code from a little plastic card and manually enter that and the several updates I had to download it was a bit dull. I sure would have like a faster, easier program to install. So don't think you can just pop this in and you are good to go, you need to first install the application, then install the language pack, then update it (if updates are available) then you need to scratch off the secret code and activate the product, then you have to setup your user profile and THEN you can finally get started.
Overall the product is good, I give it 4 stars out of 5 because the software is really the key here. The headset is low quality and that takes away from the experience.Read more ›
Naturally, I've always been curious, but have usually been put off by the near $200 price-tag that usually accompanies it. So, when Amazon Vine had it on offer, I decided to give it a try.
Here's what I have to say about it after a week's exposure to my wife (aged 40+) and my daughter (age 7).
Generally speaking, Rosetta Stone does a great job in exposing kids to vocabulary. Nouns are attributed to actual pictorial representations instead of the "x = y" approach. This generally works well, as we do a better job with image recognition than we do with word matching.
However, that being said, this kind of representation works well when you're in the early years of school where such learning applies. As adults, however, we have already a well-established mind set where learning doesn't equate well to a kindergarten-level. That's typically why we, as adults, sometimes have a hard time relating simple concepts to younger children simply because we tend to use constructs that are far more complex.
In other words, while pictorial representations (i.e. "immersion") works well to introduce new and unfamiliar words to kids, this doesn't work well when it comes to grammar. Sentence construction is best introduced in the traditional way of learning how to conjugate "-er" verbs in French by establishing simple rules (which account for 65% of the verbs in the French language). Once those rules are learned, then it's quite easy to follow.
Rosetta doesn't take this approach, which is why it hurts both kids and adults for altogether different reasons.Read more ›
