Rosetta Stone gets a lot of unfair criticism on various review sites on the internet and it's usually from people who seem half-hearted about learning a language or expect it to be some magical pill that'll instantly give them the ability to speak another language. I wish some of these people would get real.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 23 Aug 2012
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There is a reason why the Rosetta Stone language software is the market leader - it works! While the Level 1 products are a bit pricey for the amount of teaching, this full level 1-5 course justifies its price due to its level of depth. If you want to learn Spanish look nowhere else than at the Rosetta Stone Level 1-5 - its the best by far

4.0 out of 5 stars Live lessons give it the edge over competitors 30 Aug 2012
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This Rosetta Stone TOTALe Spanish course is, in a lot of ways, much like any other language course I've tried. You will find all the usual methods and tools for learning, including 'On-The-Go' lessons to download to your MP3 player, a 'Free Head Set' and voice recognition software, and so on and so forth.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but NEVER worth £320 2 Jan 2012
Rosetta Stone is no doubt a good piece of software. You probably already know how it works; it tries to immerse you in a new language through a 'recreation' of real world scenarios. And it does work, to an extent. I've been using it for a couple of months and I have learnt quite a bit in that time. But, I have also been using other products and approaches along with Rosetta Stone, such as Michel Thomas' CDs (which are excellent, by the way). When using Rosetta Stone, you have to be switched on at ALL times because it is all too easy to miss what exactly they are trying to teach you with each exercise. This is especially the case with grammar, which isn't taught well. In fact, it is barely taught at all. Some of the stuff that comes up in Rosetta Stone has only made sense to me because it had been covered in other courses that I have been using. So, although it is a useful piece of software for stuff like vocabulary and phrases, it is no way worth £320. I'd rather spend the money on actual lessons.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rosetta Stone - V4 Spanish 27 Sep 2012
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Not having any experience of learning a language, apart from my school French lessons over 25 years ago, it was hard to know what to what to expect, but at this early stage in the process it is a mixed bag of experiences for me.

When it arrives, you will no doubt be keen and eager like I was, to get underway with your learning. However, I was forced to wait while the software, once installed, was updated with the latest information & updates. In total the whole process took over an hour which did take the shine off my initial experience.

Once up and running & having registered the activation code & sorted out the position of the headset & its microphone (nice quality & supplied) I was ready to start my learning.

I may have done something wrong, and if I did I can't work out what, but I was launched straight into the online version of the programme. This was confusing but not something that I didn't overcome eventually. It's a handy aspect, in as much that you can learn while away or at a different PC, even if you don't have the software, but note you will need another headset or to carry out the learning without the voice recognition part.

After approximately an hour I was familiar with basic words & simple annunciation, typed, read & spoken. All aspects are covered but it does feel very much regimented and I will be interested in to see how later parts of the course develop.

There is a tendency to assume that you know what to do next, in terms of clicking points on the screen, moving on or going back to recap & if you can't work it out then you can get frustrated - not ideal for a learning environment.
