Top Customer Reviews
After two solid months of using Rosetta stone daily I became frustrated as not learning sentence structure becomes more and more apparent the longer you use it. At this point, I don't think I could construct a decent sentence if I had relied on Rosetta Stone alone. You end up just parroting back the sentences that are tossed at you. I chose not to use the romaji option instead using mostly hiragana, so spent time translating the sentences so that I could speak them back without missing words or mumbling parts I hadn't caught. The lesson sections that contained choices for word particles were a joke, as there is no way you can fully grasp what you should be using after certain words and why the word is used. I bought another textbook to address this. Bottom line, is that while this has nice visuals and allows you to hear the spoken language, I don't think you can truly learn the Japanese language in any functional way without using other sources and spending extra money.
Also, I expected to provide my own headset/mic and if you purchase this program you should too, as the unit provided will not even work with the program.I am still persevering with this program but I have little confidence that I can construct coherent sentences from using this software alone. Bottom line - If you truly wish to learn Japanese expect to use other sources and materials to build a foundation and supplement this software. Would I buy this again? Not certain that I would. Perhaps, once I've finished the entire set I may feel differently.
On a side note, the little headset that comes with it is pretty weak. I just use a regular mic and my speakers. I have that option, though. I'm sure they work well enough if you're using a laptop or need to be quiet.
One thing that is nice about Rosetta Stone is I like the option to select different writing styles, including romanji (which you should never use if you are serious about learning Japanese), hana (hiragana/katakana - great for beginners), kanji, and kanji with furigana. I love the option for Kanji with Furigana, since it is super helpful in learning new kanji. The only hold back from this is the kanji + furigana option did not seem to work for me on the mobile version, but it did work on my computer.
The mobile app is also nice so I can do it on the go, and if you get interrupted in the middle of a lesson, it remembers where you were at. I also like that I could download lessons in advance, so for instance if I was going on a plane, I would still be able to use the mobile app.
One downside I'd beware of is that the activation card/code I received was not valid. It was brand new, sold and shipped by Amazon, and unscratched, but it didn't work. After hassling with the Rosetta Stone online chat support (who funny enough spoke extremely broken English), I finally just contacted Amazon who quickly agreed to send me a replacement. So make sure you activate it as soon as possible to make sure you received a valid code!

If you have a grasp on the language you wish to learn I would say Rosetta Stone would be worth buying. However, if you have minimal to no experience in the language I would look else where. Possibly a study book first.
