I studied Spanish in high school and during undergrad (about 6 years ago), so I still know a substantial amount of the language. This program is no good. In the product's page, they advertise " Live online tutoring sessions with a Native Speaker - 3-month trial included". That was not true for me. It has only been two weeks since I received my CD's. I scheduled my first session yesterday. Surprise, surprise. These folks don't tell you that the sessions are "20 minutes" long, you have to schedule them way in advance, and that you are not the only student being "tutored" during that session. Even worse, I was trying to schedule another session yesterday, but I was not allowed to. Yes, just a couple weeks in and somehow, my subscription has expired.
I was directed to contact Rosetta Stone. I used the online chat option to get this cleared up. Some operator by the last name of "Seles", in broken English, said she would be more than happy to give me the info I was seeking. After I waited for several minutes during this live chat, she finally responded. Oh no... it was NOT the answer to my question. She just copied and pasted irrelevant information.
After I told her "look, I already told you I have only owned this program for two weeks and I purchased it brand new from Amazon, why are copy and pasting text that reminds me that I am to have only a three month trial membership?", she then simply directed me to call the Rosetta Stone number, and now she told me that she did not have the info I needed.
I called the number... surprise, surprise.... no one available to help. They work Monday through Thursday at very limited hours.
Besides this issue, I am always getting system errors, the mic is terrible, etc.
I would not recommend this program to anyone. This was a very frustrating experience.
I think many of the reviews that are available on Amazon are from people that only have a brief experience with the product.
This is what I think needs improvement:
1. There needs to be translation into your native language. From the pictures, it is sometimes very difficult to figure out whtat they are trying to express. I wish I could click on the text and read it in English as well as Spanish.
Here's a huge tip. Download the couse content guide for the English version of this course. It's almost the same content and you can read the script in English that cooresponds to your Spanish lessons. You can find the course content guides in the support-download section of the Rosetta Stone web site. The English lesson guide has the content of the core and milestone lessons. It makes a tremendous difference to be able to read the text in English so you know what they are trying to tell you. Also, use google translate.
2. There should be grammar explanations and lessons in your native language as well. They cover grammar by showing you different scenes expressed with different grammar text. It is very difficult at times to figure out why certain grammar is used in certain cases. I think a spanish grammar book would be very useful along with the Rosetta Stone software. My son is studying high school spanish. I looked at his spanish book and it really filled in the blanks on several fuzzy areas that I have at this point with Rosetta Stone.
3. They should give you a spanish-english dictionary of all of the words that are used in the program for reference.
4. Word recognition can be tricky. You can mispronounce a sentence completely and get told the pronuciation was correct, but sometimes single syllable words are practically impossible to score correctly in certain cases.
I feel you can go through the lessons successfully but not really learn how to construct sentences or speak the language in a conversation with a spanish speaker.
I am also testing out "Tell Me More-Spanish" level 1-10. It is much more comprehensive. The program does contain grammar as well as English translations. There are over 8600 Spanish words in the program. I've got about 30 hours into this one, it doesn't spoon feed the vocabulary as well as Rosetta Stone. The learning curve is much steeper. I will need more time to make an evaluation on whether I like Tell Me More over Rosetta Stone. Tell Me More claims that by the time you finish their course, you will have total mastery of Spanish. I spoke with their support staff. One person said she was on level 7 of the spanish program and she can now converse fluently with native spanish speakers. That is something you will not have with Rosetta Stone because it is not as comprehensive.
January 2013, I have just ordered Fluenz Spanish 1-5. The reviews that I've read look very promising. They claim to offer detailed explanations of grammar, verb conjugation, and sentence structure in English.
Update: I've put about 15-20 hours into Fluenz and I'm quite impressed. It seems to start out slow, but that's likely because of my previous Spanish experience. They take the opposite approach of Rosetta Stone. Each lesson begins with a conversation (with Spanish and English subtitles). The next exercise breaks it down very thoroughly in English, word by word, and covers grammar and sentence structure. That is followed by several exercises to reinforce the material. My plan is to complete all 5 levels and then go back to Rosetta Stone for further reinforcement and additional vocabulary. I may also consider online tutoring via Skype. There are programs that offer private tutoring with native Spanish teachers for as little as $11 per lesson
