Another gripe is that the images are not unique to the language. You would think that if you pay over $200 bucks for one level (and over $500 for all three) that you would be getting something unique. Having said that, there is a wide range of different Russian speakers throughout level one - all very pleasant and easy to understand.
The online features are absolutely great. This is one reason why it's earned four stars from me. I honestly think Rosetta Stone could really make some money if they separated the software and their online stuff.
So, to sum everything up: this is a good, addictive, and interactive product; but it definitely shouldn't be your only resource. Buy some books to understand some of the grammar, and try to get yourself a dictionary or always have Google Translate handy and ready to go. Also, try to hook up with some native speakers via Skype or something, especially if you want to learn some real conversational skills. You can probably learn more in a few hours with a native speaker (when it comes to day-to-day conversations) than Rosetta Stone Russian level 1 will teach you.
The program is easy to use, just like all Rosetta Stone products. I would recommend learning at least the alphabet before starting, as that definitely helps the program make more sense. This actually comes with an alphabet guide, but you should probably use another source to learn it. Also, learning some grammar before starting could be of much use. I remember having absolutely no idea which choice to make on many of the grammar questions early on. This is alright, however, as you'll end up figuring it out mostly by using Rosetta Stone.
As I'm an absolute beginner, I did like that Rosetta Stone just starts off with vocabulary. It gives a good feel for the pronunciation of words and other basic concepts. I must admit, though, that it was pretty scary to start the very beginning lesson with a near impossible-to-pronounce word, devushka ("girl" in the English alphabet). Aside from that, the program starts off nicely with vocab, and progresses to grammar and some basic conversation. It becomes even more complex once each core lesson (and then unit) is mastered. The "standard" course is perfect for learning the language overall, although there are different courses that can specifically focus on speaking, reading, or writing. There are also standard courses with different introductions, extended courses, and placement tests.
Some people may not like Rosetta Stone's style of full immersion. I suppose it does make some parts difficult, but it also teaches you better than simple translations.
I'd definitely recommend this product. I'm not even done using it yet, but it's taught me a lot of Russian and I will be getting the next levels.
We're glad to hear that you're enjoying your Russian studies! Another tip to learn the alphabet is to make sure that you have the "Learn letters and sounds" option checked under your Course Settings. If this option is checked, your first reading and writing activities will introduce the sounds that characters make.
To access the Course Settings, click on the preferences icon at the top of your screen, then click on "Set Preferences". Click on the "Course Settings" tab, then "Change your Course Settings". I hope this helps, and good luck with your language-learning!
