4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent software, but for the price... 26 Aug 2010
By Inspector Gadget VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I can speak English just fine so it may seem a trifle odd to be reviewing a software package that caters to people learning English, but Tell Me More can also be used to teach young kids and is much more fun than the dull "phonetic" lessons I had when I started Primary school. The package is also the same across the board, so if your learning Japanese, Spanish, Italian etc the same features and activities will apply.

The package itself is very light. It contains a microphone and headset, which are a tiny bit flimsy, the DVD and some instructions. So for the asking price you're getting very little physical product. The value, obviously, is in the software and there's loads to keep you busy and help you on your language learning quest. Tell Me More is personalixed to your own learning ability and won't treat you like a generic user. It teaches based on actual phrases and dialect instead of typical foreigner catchphrases and doesn't stereotype. The virtual conversation feature is rather amusing. In fact, I would probably have learned more through this software than in 4 years of learning German the traditional way (from a perpetually angry teacher) back in high school. It's all easy to navigate and extremely user friendly to the point that even the most timid of technophobes will be able to manipulate and get the most out of it.

But at this price you need to be completely dedicated to learning whatever your chosen language may be.This is not a toy or superficial investment. If you have the money and the time then you will no doubt significantly improve in your quest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great software, so-so price point! 22 April 2011
By DJ Bez
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There is very little I can say that will not be familiar to other reviews. I am a fluent English speaker but still gave this suite a good run for its money; and did not actually think until reading other reviews that it would be just as valid to use this in order to improve the grammar and vocabulary of younger children.

In the box is simply a DVD and headset; the apparent low cost of the headset is a shame considering the price of the product, and the premise of the software, i.e. high quality voice recognition.

However, it is this voice recognition that actually works rather well; at least with an English accent. It would have been far more telling, perhaps, to have test-driven a Spanish copy (aimed at English speakers) but then again even my deliberate attempts to put on accents that would have made even a Butlins comic blush were often interpreted by the software!

The software is easy enough to navigate and runs in essential 3 different modes. I think that the average user would have no problem using the 'fully guided' mode even if they had not read the manual at all, which must be a good thing.

Overall, a very good package, just a shame about the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent language program. 10 April 2013
By J Cattermole VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I highly recommend this series of language programs, I have tried quite a few before various holidays and have found them a massive help to quickly grasp the main basics of the language and to even take with you to brush up on skills to continue using them throughout your holiday. If you've ever been curious to learn a language this is a really fast guaranteed way of picking it up and best of all remembering what you've leant. it's enjoyable, fast paced, easy to use and install and for the vast amount i had learnt after completing it - it is worth the money and each level takes you through more vocabulary - you can pay more for the higher levels version - these are more than enough if you want to feel confident holding a conversation on holiday.
Highly recommend this course, it has all you need to learn the basics and more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good 21 Dec 2010
By Sam D
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Tell Me More comes as a DVD accompanied with a headset for use with the computer. There is no lengthy manual to read or heavy instructions for installation. Indeed, I loaded and registered my program with very little effort. I was able to choose a method for my instruction, "Free to Roam", "Guided" or "Dynamic Mode". I chose Dynamic Mode which I learned is designed with artificial intelligence for someone with a bit of experience with the language. All beginner students should choose "Guided Mode" which is much more of a hand-holding experience.

The levels contain thousands of exercises and many different types of activities, which develop oral and written language skills, grammar, vocabulary, and culture studies. A Day-planner type option is available to the homeschool teacher providing tracking information regarding student progress, comprehension and mastery of various skills plus a time table allowing the teacher and student to understand the time commitment the program anticipates necessary for completion of the program. This feature would be an excellent asset for students who like to work independently, but still need monitoring and occasional prodding.

By Mr. Hm Bennett VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Like the other reviewers here, I reckon I can speak English quite well; what with it being my only language which I have spoken since babyhood.
Mine was given to a friend who is a consultant surgeon from Brazil studying in the UK who wanted to improve his English (he could already make himself understood); it is worth stating that he has a brain the size of a planet so we are not talking Mr. Average here.
On the other hand, in less than 2 months, he's pretty much exhausted the entire thing; that sounds bad but we are talking a VERY dedicated student here.
He is pretty impressed and I can tell that his English is better than it was.
His opinion was that the earlier bits were (obviously?) less challenging but that the various methods used in the software worked to improve vocabulary and understanding.
What I noticed with him is that he was more confident when speaking, used his verbs more consistently and had more vocabulary.
Despite the headset, pronunciation proved the toughest nut to crack, despite the headset / voice recognition facility included in the pack; he now notices his own misponunciations and corrects himself but I don't think he gets things right the first time any more than he did before.
On his recommendation, I am thinking about buying the German one for my holiday next year - but this is a lot of money and I'm not sure that this big expense is justified for mere ordinary mortals like myself.
