Rosetta Stone is self-contained and intuitive to use. There are no complicated lists to memorize or handbooks to read. With Dynamic Immersion, you can start learning immediately. Join NASA, Fortune 500 executives, U.S. diplomats and millions of learners worldwide in discovering the fastest way to learn Spanish.
And what exactly is Dynamic Immersion? Studies show that learning exclusively in the new language--without translation as a crutch--is crucial if you want to communicate. Grammar drills and rote memorization never develop this skill. Dynamic Immersion helps you think in the new language and quickly develops the language skills and structures you need to for everyday communication. Rosetta Stone teaches Spanish through a step-by-step sequence of carefully structured Dynamic Immersion lessons. New words become associated with familiar objects, actions, and ideas. Words build to phrases and sentences in a systematic progression.
The Dynamic Immersion method reconnects people to the language skills they used successfully to master their first language. With Rosetta Stone, you start from a position of strength--your own strength. First, Rosetta Stone allows you to learn through context. The software presents a carefully chosen selection of four images and asks you to select the image that matches the written text and the voices of native speakers. Building on the knowledge you've already gained and your intuitive grasp of the meaning of each picture, you make a choice. There's absolutely no translation or memorization to hold you back, so you start making progress immediately.
Next, Rosetta Stone offers immediate reinforcement. The very second you complete a task, the software provides feedback. Speak a word and our unique voiceprint technology automatically rates your pronunciation. Connect an image with a phrase and you'll immediately learn if your choice was correct. Complete a set of exercises and you'll instantly know how well you did. With Rosetta Stone, you always know where you stand. Recognizing that dynamic immersion is a continuous process, Rosetta Stone also employs a systematic sequence that gradually incorporates new words, phrases, and more complex grammar as it reinforces existing learning. As a result, your understanding of your new language grows naturally.
Levels 1 and 2 includes more than 8,000 real-life images and phrases in 210 lessons, as well and an average of 450 hours of instruction depending on your learning style. Rosetta Stone also incorporates a balanced curriculum including listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing, as well as speech recognition for accent perfection. The program's systematic structure teaches vocabulary and grammar naturally, without lists and drills, and there are previews, exercises, and tests for every lesson with automated tutorials.
Rosetta Stone's lessons will quickly get you up to speed on a wide range of language topics, including directions; affirmative and negative verb forms; food, eating, and drinking; family relationships; direct objects; telling time; shapes, colors and locations; greetings and conversations; travel, transportation, and transactions; shopping and dining; and much, much more.

I'm disappointed with being forced to work from the CD's to make the program function and especially the accidental risk of damaging the CD's and basically losing a costly investment.
Surely in this day and age a prominent company such as Rosetta Stone could come up with a better operation for their software to be used than what they currently have for their customers.
This is overpriced, overhyped, boring software. You will look at many pictures and do the same point and click, speak into the mike, type on the keyboard exercises many times. You will not learn any Spanish to help you travel or talk to your neighbors about much of anything except falling boys, jumping horses, and old red cars. The verb forms you are introduced to first will not be the correct ones for speaking of present events (see another review for more on this problem). You will pay a lot of money and never be able to legally resell the software to recoup your loss.
Instead, buy a book/CD combination. If you want to read, buy "Spanish for Reading," absolutely the best introduction for reading Spanish there is. You will learn much more for a smaller investment of time. If you really want software (not, in my opinion, all that good a way to learn, and I've tried lots of software), go for TeLL Me More Spanish, also expensive but with much more material and many more varied learning exercises.
Don't buy this. The whole Rosetta Stone series is a triumph of marketing over actual value.
