The Macintosh version included in the box is an older version (8.1), lagging behind the advertised Windows version (9.0). While I'm thrilled it runs as native "Carbonized" application on Mac OS X, I've run into a few minor glitches: 1) The application help uses Apple's Help Viewer, but the Swedish grammar reference uses QuickHelp, which crashes often and won't print. 2) The cool Speech Correctness feature works with my PowerBook G4's built-in microphone, but doesn't work correctly with my higher quality iSight microphone. 3) The user interface looks horribly outdated when running in Mac OS X's Aqua interface.
That said, this is the best language software I've seen on a computer. Yes, it includes canned quizzes and games, vocabulary and grammar tutorials, just as you'd expect from educational computer software. However, its primary teaching mode is non-structured and passive, as an interactive digital textbook. It took me a while to understand this. You can read the titles in any order and have it speak any word or phrase. Using your computer's microphone, you can record your voice and compare it against the native speaker's. But it can also analyze your voice based on pitch, frictive, and vowel sounds (to varying degrees of success, but enough to make it useful). So, the usage is completely open-ended (what they call the "Successful Immersion Approach"). In a way, this is better than human instruction. I sat there trying to nail the pronunciation of a phrase, repeating it over and over, and I thought: a human would never be so patient! The reward comes not from flashing "congratulations, you passed this quiz!" at your face, but from within yourself as you experience the joy of entering a foreign language with software "training wheels.

I bought this product to try and learn Swedish on my own and it really is everything they say it is and more. The amount of actual Swedish language in the program you can learn is so large that it would take a great deal of time to learn it all. There are tons of conversation practices to learn from and even Interactive Video Conversations which through video, audio, and a microphone you can simulate a conversation with native speakers. To practice vocabulary and other aspects of Swedish language there are many games provided in the software. This software is really versatile because it is good for all skill levels and purposes (work, travel, education, ect.). I give my utmost recomendation to use this software for learning Swedish.

I love this product. I tried some other products but I haven't found anything better than this. The games and coversation practices are really fun and there is just so much to learn with this. If you want to learn Swedish(or any other language) try this. Overall, this product is really good and I would advise anyone who doubts this to try it.

I bought this language course 2 weeks ago (actually from Transparent's website because they gave a big discount).
When I first looked at the course I was a little disappointed. It only has 4 texts. However after working with it I realized that the texts are really long and it will take quite a while to go through them all. What I really love about this product are the activities. They're so much fun. Crosswords, finding missing words in a sentence, unscrambling sentences, and lots more. I enjoy it a lot and noticed that I've learned quite a bit of Swedish already, just by playing these activities.
I guess you have to get used to the kind of learning approach this software offers. They don't take you by the hand and lead you on a given path, you have to motivate yourself and find your way around.

9/13/2007: I just want to add that this software comes with the flash card software Before You Know It Lite. It's an awesome vocabulary learning software. I actually upgraded to the Deluxe version yesterday. Learning with this software is so much fun I enjoy it every night. (I must be a nerd. :-))
