Learning another language takes a lot of time and effort. Simply studying the first level isn't enough, nor should you expect it to be. What Rosetta Stone does well is demystify the language you're learning and present it in everyday situations using what is essentially an expensive visual flash card system, one that for me works better than other methods.
I've nearly completed level two and feel that my Spanish level is improving all the time. I try and do an hour everyday, two if possible, plus watch some Spanish TV on the internet (Telemadrid.es is my favourite). Already, I'm starting to understand what's going on in some programmes and I've still got another three levels to go.
Rosetta Stone isn't perfect, but you know what? No product on the market is. In my opinion, Rosetta Stone is the best there is right now, a conclusion I've come to after using many other products such as Michel Thomas, numerous textbooks, Linguaphone, part-time evening courses at a local college (never again), plus others. It's the only product that has kept me motivated.
No product on the market right now is going to make you fluent in speaking your target language because they are all designed to improve your receptive skills (listening and reading). Only interacting with native speakers in the real world will bring fluency in speaking. I know after studying the first two levels that my speaking ability isn't going to be great when I've finished all five levels.Read more ›
They all seem much of a muchness to me, however this Rosetta Stone course does differ in one way. And it's a difference that is potentially massive: it offers you live lesson with native speakers of the language... OK. Just sit there and take that in for a second because, in all honesty, it's a pretty revolutionary development in software language lessons.
Every software language course I've tried has left me feeling that it would be better used as an additional tool alongside 'proper lessons', as opposed to a 'total learning solution'. With the addition of these live lessons, Rosetta Stone could be about to change all that.
The live lessons aren't perfect but I fell they're a huge step forward for this type of course. For me it's enough to just give this product the edge over its competitors and other language courses I've tried, all though, all in all, nothing else is radically different.
I can honestly say after doing a curtailed year of Spanish at school and various refresher courses down the years, this is the best way to learn the language, short of going to live in Spain!
I really don't understand the knockers of Rosetta Stone and particularly the ones who criticise the ipad and iphone apps. They are identical to the main course and your progress gets updated on each as you sign in so you can continue from your last point.
Using the included microphone is definitely much better than using my computers in built microphone but the iPad version mic has also worked very well (on ipad mini).
I have used Michel Thomas which i also highly rate and that gets you talking faster but Rosetta Stone builds up you vocabulary in more detail. I MT in the car and RS when at home!
Expensive but really worth the money. The price on amazon does swing by quite a large amount depending upon what offers the Rosetta Stone website has on. Amazon always seems to be cheaper though so keep you eye out on the price so you dont buy at the wrong time!
