5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a method I can't fault., 29 Jun 2011
This review is from: Rosetta Stone, French, Version 4, TOTALe, Level 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 (Mac/PC)[OLD VERSION] (CD-ROM)
I am incredibly fussy about the way I am taught, but I am finding Rosetta Stone to be PERFECT for me. I started with only a handful of random words in my vocabulary that I remember from lower high school. I feel that I've learnt loads in a short space of time, and I find it difficult to quit the program. I just love it.

If you are put off by the price of this product (as I was for a while before taking the 'plunge'), bear in mind that you are paying for a quality product. Having used it myself, I now feel that the price is entirely justified. In my opinion, the program is fun, easy to use, and very very clever.

The only TOTALe feature I have used so far is Rosetta World, which enables you to play games with other learners. There seems to be a shortage of potential partners on there, and the selection of solo games is very small and they are, quite simply, much less fun than playing with another person. When I did find a partner, we played the game and communicated with each other only in French, just as intended, and I found it to be a very fun and challenging experience.
I have two sessions booked for today with native speakers, and although I probably should have waited until after one of them to write this, I'm confident that they will be a nice supplement to my language course. I am conscious, however, that after my free 3 months is over, I will have to pay extra to retain the TOTALe features.

I highly recommend this product if it is within your budget, and I will definitely be purchasing more Rosetta Stone products in the future.
