3.0 out of 5 stars Mystical stories, 3 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First time for me to read mysticAl stuff. I have mixed feelings ... some stories held my attention and I enjoyed especially the ones that had a religious themes loosely built on our world beliefs. Some stories very gory. One I even abandoned as it seemed so disjointed. The first and last stories I enjoyed. For the price it was a good buy for the amount of reading offered. But not my cup of tea. Reminded me of violent computer games which are also not for me.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I find this the best method I have tried and am speaking quite adequate German almost straight away and am able to put sentences together. I have not yet received family/friend conversational level but am able to follow most german in social gatherings. i have studied German for 5 years using various teaching books and none have done so much for me as this method. However because I have been book learning for so long I think the breakthrough I have had and the way gramatical word order etc are put in this package has been for me instrumental in my quickly understanding the language by the Michel Thomas method. I have recently purchased the Portuguese language course and am starting from scratch with no previous learning and this is also proving easy to follow and quick to learn.

this method of learning i highly recommend. i have the German version and after 5 years learning by book reading I have made a breakthrough and am now having a similar experience with the Portuguese version. you learn as a baby does or young child. no writing, no rote no worry to remember, listen and learn.

1.0 out of 5 stars 3 in 1 charger kit compatabilit????, 9 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
afraid this did not match the batteries that I wished to charge for the Sony Cybershot camera ref DSCF505V which was included as compatible in the ad for this item. I am therefore having to return it. As a package it came quickly, was well packed and if it had fit then the items appeared to be of good construction

2.0 out of 5 stars using a memory system, 1 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not for me. I have tried over and over to manage this system for my needs but am struggling. I feel there is more effort going into finding not only areas to store your words but to associate actions and stories to help you remember is actually confusing. I can understand that it might work for some. And there is proof of success with others. I think I have developed my own way already by remembering by association with difficult words, names, faces and have done so for many years, my own system adapted to me - but I have given up on this idea of Memory palaces.

I have to say however there is continuing support from the writer who is also an expert on this system, who continually encourages you to keep trying and takes on board others comments etc who are having more success than me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rosetta Course, 1 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rosetta Course (App)
This is an appetizer for those serious in learning a language. The course is a freebee showing how you can learn like a child learns with pictures and speech of the chosen language. There is no translation into your own language it is all understood by presenting a picture then speaking the content.

I tried German and Portuguese. German I have been studying off and on for 4 years and have some knowledge however ~I can say the method used here was so simple and easy I actually learned from it, even though I suspect this level is very elementary. I have just started the Portuguese and finding this also is absorbing and easy to understand. The pictures are exactly the same as the German course.

I am very interested to continue learning using this method and you can move on to the Rosette site which gives you information on the various levels and what you will achieve; however the prices of the various levels are I think expensive especially as they come in bundles.

I think it would be very helpful if the company concerned would consider selling each level individually thus providing those with smaller incomes a chance to use their system.

The levels are
