Great software... just not enough material
on November 5, 2011
This software is actually really awesome. BUT, the amount of material that you get is just not worth the money you spend. I definitely learned a lot but I could have rented cds and software from the library (in fact, I did) for free and learned all of the information I learned from this software.
If I had paid $30 or $40 I would be pretty satisfied. However, $80 is simply too much. To add insult to injury, most of the lessons that you pay for are available periodically for free on their website! AND, they send you a ton of junk mail, which I find incredibly annoying!
I recommend that people check out what their local library has to offer, and check out the free lessons available on the Visual Link website, before purchasing this software. I also recommend the "Learning Spanish with Michael Thomas" software (don't buy it; try to borrow it or find it online); the format is really fun and he gives you a lot of useful tips that really increase your vocabulary.
