5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic, Fast and Intuitive Way to Learn, 29 Mar 2011

This review is from: Rosetta Stone Version 3: Italian Level 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 with Audio Companion (Mac/PC) (CD-ROM)
As someone who traditionally didn't get on with languages, when it came to learning Italian I needed a fresh approach to the language and found it right here in the fantastic Rosetta Stone series. The software (which runs flawlessly on my Windows 7 64-Bit Laptop) teaches you the language directly, bypassing the need for any translation meaning that you learn quickly by understanding rather than traditional courses that would have you learning lists of words. Grammar exercises don't feel difficult as you begin to trust your intuition to give you the right answer rather than going via your native language. In fact, the only time you'll see your native language in this software are on the lesson screens where the learning is broken down into easily manageable sections with reminders to re-take past reviews and the ability to re-cap where required.

The lessons themselves are split into several different types with each new topic or section being introduced by a core lesson and then reinforced through grammar, writing, pronunciation and vocabulary sections. The great thing about the software is that while your learning at no point does it feel like a chore nor, despite the constant feedback on both your written and spoken word, does it feel like a test. This is how languages should be learnt, direct association from foreign language to object, question or action rather than tedious lists and complicated rules. Learn this way from the start and trust me, stick with it and trust me, you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything I wanted, 17 Jan 2011
This review is from: Rosetta Stone Version 3: Italian Level 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 with Audio Companion (Mac/PC) (CD-ROM)
The product was exactly what I wanted and ordered, and was delivered bang on time, despite the snow before Christmas. Using the product is reasonably simple, but setup is not quite as easy as it sounds - but if you persevere, you'll get there.
