Good lesson for anyone wanting to learn basic french. Lots of lessons and easy to follow along with. The only section that was difficult was the start up process with the lesson and downloading, but once that is mastered its easy to follow.
We use it every day, and find it enjoyable and effective. I was surprised that the supplemental on-line component (which enables you to practice with others) is not included in the price and varies with the product you purchase. For the one I bought, one user got 3 free months. You can pay for more time and for time for other users in your family, and the cost is reasonable.
Couldn't recommend more! This was one of my "Prime Day" purchases, and boy was it a steal. I suggest allotting ample spare time to dive in to the lessons. They are time consuming (well worth it) and if you don't make the time for it, it will be a waste of your money.
Rosetta Stone works well, but it honestly gets kind of boring after a while. The program teaches you to pronounce things really well and I like the immersion strategy for learning a language, but sometimes I just want to play a game or do something a little differently.
The free trial period for their online world is nice, but even the games on there are pretty boring. It gets monotonous to do the same thing constantly and wish it switched it up a bit every once in a while. I seem to be learning, though! I'm also doing other things to support my language comprehension, including podcasts, grammar books, and vocabulary flashcards.
I like that the CD-ROM installation is now a thing of the past--you just activate online, set up a login, and everything is now done through the Rosetta Stone website (which means you can access it from any computer with internet access, something you couldn't say in the old desktop installation paradigm) or an app. I use the iPad app and the only complaint I have is that, for some reason, you can't do the writing exercises in the iPad app itself--the writing exercises can only be done via a browser session.
