First, a brief description of how Rosetta Stone is laid out. There is a basic application you install, and then you install language levels on top of it. You can purchase several boxes with different levels for the same language or even different languages, but you would only install the application the first time, and the additional language levels plug into it. The maximum number of levels per language is five, but many languages only have one through three available. This means that Rosetta Stone will not cover as advanced of topics in these languages.
Each level of a language has four units, and each unit has four main lessons and about 35 activities overall. The main lessons each take 20-30 minutes to complete, and the additional activities each take 5-10 minutes. The additional activities correspond to a specific lesson and focus on a single aspect of the language, like pronunciation, vocabulary, or writing. Additionally, there is a review for each lesson, which is occasionally repeated as you complete the level. Unfortunately, these reviews do not carry across levels. You will never see a review for Level 1, Unit 2, Lesson 3 while working on Level 2, for instance. These reviews are based on time, not how many activities you've completed, so if you take longer to complete the level, you will see more reviews.
The course is built around hearing native speakers speak a phrase that corresponds to a picture. Then there are different tasks you have to accomplish.Read more ›
There are deficiencies in the Rosetta Stone system. As 100% of the program is in German, one needs to pick up a dictionary to translate properly some of the words in the course. Also if one forgets a word there is no glossary allowing one to go back to the section the word was introduced.
The underlying premiss that adults can learn a language like a child has limits. Do you know a foreigner who learned English as an adult who speaks like a native? The last flaw is a significant one. German has a complex grammatical system and there is no way that one can pick that up by just listening to it. Hitting a german grammar book outside the course is a major help in this regard.
I have family in the German part of Switzerland and they can understand me. My fluency level is enough to get by at the conversational level in most situations. Think of Rosetta Stone 1-5 like a couple of years of college level study. One will be far from fluent but at the same time, one can get almost any idea across and have a solid foundation to build on.
I can't. I used TOTALe in my iPad while it was included in my initial purchase and then let it lapse. Recently, I decided to bite the bullet and renew my TOTALe subscription, for God knows how much money, so I could be mobile. Ah! You can't get there from here. If the TOTALe subscription is allowed to lapse, your account is no longer accessible. And that's where their incredibly inept customer service comes in. I spent forever online in a chat that kept crashing, trying to determine why I couldn't get in to my account. Once told I had to essentially start all over, I was transferred and promptly lost in the ozone. I tried email. This helpful person told me to login to my account and renew. But I can't DO that; my account is inaccessible until I have the subscription, and so it goes.
Foolish me. I do not understand why I must have a subscription to put an app on my iPad so I can use a very pricey piece of software. I'm angry and frustrated and can't get no satisfaction. Where's Mick Jagger when you need him? And who are the people who decided this was a good business model: Charge a lot for the total software package and then charge a lot MORE to make it mobile. And keep on charging. Oh, yeah, people will buy it. Forgot that part. Sad.
I'm very sorry to hear about this negative experience! I was able to locate the case you submitted, and have escalated to a team lead to follow up with you and resolve this today.

Unlike a newborn baby, you have already developed linguistic habits based on English. English has no noun genders and no cases. So you start Rosetta Stone and you feel good because you can match words to pictures but all your doing is learning vocabulary. You will never be able to form a real sentence because you never learned the noun genders and therefor can't navigate the cases and thus give up because it doesn't make any sense. German is just one of those languages where grammar lessons, although painful, actually save you time. I hated grammar my entire life and sucked at it in school so it pains me to say this.
I wanted Rosetta Stone to work. When I started it I was like "Wow,I can do this." But German is really freaking hard and the sentence structure is comletely different from English even though they're both Germanic languages.Read more ›
