Learn Italian the interactive and visual way,
This review is from: Rosetta Stone, Italian, Version 4, Level 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 (Mac/PC)[OLD VERSION] (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
With this package, you get the basic software, Rosetta Studio for live online classes, Rosetta World for games, and a mobile app. There's no denying that, even though this language course is VERY expensive, you do get a lot for your money.
The downside is that if you're looking for a crash course, you should look elsewhere. This Rosetta course demands a long-term commitment from you. It offers so much that you could be justified in spending years studying it.
So far, I have been using this course for just a couple of weeks but I like what I have seen. The attractiveness of the interface, with the use of bright colours and good images, make learning more enjoyable. I like the visual and interactive elements of the course, something that was lacking in the other language courses I have tried in the past. The whole set up makes it relatively easy to remember words.
I have attended an Italian class which lasted for several months and I feel that I have learned more with this Rosetta Stone course in two weeks. It's not perfect - and it can feel overwhelming at first with the amount of options and settings - but persevere with it and you will be rewarded with better Italian grammar and a bigger vocabulary!
