Top customer reviews
When it works, it looks like a fine program, but it won't work for a lot of people with internet speeds like mine.
I found, however, that, after trying several different microphones, I usually cannot get them to work, or they work sporadically. Perhaps this is due to Windows 7. You are supposed to be able to turn off this feature, and the course will work without the microphone. I have found that the way they tell you to turn it off is not an option. Usually I have to wait until the program realizes that it is not getting an oral response from me that they finally give me the option of turning it off. Other than that, I have no other complaints.
In the little box comes: card with activation code (for when you create your user etc to enter it), and some usb earphones.
It is good for full 12 months on the language you select during setup.
This deal allows you to have 12 months of online access (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) on multiple devices for 1 language course for 1 user. If you're a fast learner, that could mean real savings for you as you can complete one level and move on to the next throughout the year, conceivably completing a 1-5 level course for much less than if you'd purchased the CDs or downloaded the program.
If this program is on sale ($100 Off or so... or with a bonus offer) it's a steal of a deal.

Why buy this Rosetta Stone version instead of CDs or a download?
One user can study 1 of 26 languages for 12 months and extend their study for $20 for each additional month, as needed. This user can go through all 5 levels with this one subscription, if they are a quick study, saving a bunch on the 1-5 Level Rosetta Stone CDs and downloads. The biggest selling point to 12 months of online access in my opinion.
You can access your online lessons using multiple platforms: iPad, iPhone, Android tablets and phones, Mac and Windows PCs. You simply gain access on your device and start where you left off.
You get (2) - 25 minute group lessons with native speakers every 30 days. NOTE: This is the only limitation on 'lessons' with this edition of Rosetta Stone. *A definite perk to online courses - no matter how much of this kind of instruction they give you - as it doesn't appear to be offered with at least the Homeschool (cheaper) version of the CD packages.
Online access to lessons for the language you choose, are available 24-7 on multiple devices.
Who should not buy this online version of Rosetta Stone language software?
Anyone who wants a hardcopy of the program (CDs) or who doesn't want to be charged for an extension of the course (auto renewal that you can cancel at any time).
You have to think about your useage and needs to figure out if this is the right version for you. If not, consider downloads or CD bundles in individual levels. Prices may be higher depending upon current promotions, but I've never seen these sets discounted more than 20%.
Costs for CD or downloads of Rosetta Stone software: $180 per level, $300 for levels 1-3, and $500 for bundles with levels 1-5.
If you're a quick study and this one is on sale, you'll save a ton of money, but if you prefer studying at your leisure over a period of years, you'll probably want to buy the CDs or download the program of your choice.
Here's the transcript of a Rosetta Stone Customer Service Chat with 'Rosemary' which helped me to decide this version is right for my daughter, who wants to study one language (Japanese) to make herself more marketable for being chosen to study abroad in high school.
Rosemary P: Thank you for contacting Rosetta Stone Support. How can I help you today?
You: Question: If I purchase online access, does this give me access to more than one language, and if so, are their limitations to the time per day, week or month that I have access? Is there a link to find answers regarding Online access?
Rosemary P: No, your account is specific to one language. If you want access to multiple languages, you would have to purchase a subscription for each
You: And only for one user?
Rosemary P: Correct
You: Is there a time limit per day, week or year to study online? Or limit to levels?
Rosemary P: No, when you purchase you get access to all levels of the program and there is no limit on the time you can spend in the program
You: No limit to say 2 - 25 minute sessions a month?
Rosemary P: Yes, that is limited
Rosemary P: I'm sorry, I thought you were asking about the time you could spend in the actual course
You: Is that the limit or is it something else?
Rosemary P: You receive 2 group sessions per 30 days - that is for Studio sessions.
You: I can access on multiple devices, and start where I left off?
Rosemary P: Depending on the language you can access on most mobile devices. Phones do not sync with your program on your computer but iPads do
You: And if I'm wanting to continue online access after the 12 months to continue my studies, will I be given the option to do so?
Rosemary P: It automatically renews for you at $20 per month. You can cancel at any time after that too.
You: Great! Thank you for your assistance with these questions. I have nothing further at this time.
Rosemary P: Excellent! You are very welcome! I will follow up with an email in case you think of anything else!
