Good product in many ways, will just comment on a few negatives;
1) The fact that images are standard across all languages and not made to be specific to the country of each specific language is poor considering the price ..
2) Gets a bid tedious after a while - especially as the parts of each lesson after the 'core' are essentially repeats of what you have in the core lesson - really there needs to be new pictures and new ideas here, as gets a bit boring ..
3) Much is made of it being easy to use and no tedious remembering etc .. however contrary to modern theories language learning is hard work (everything requires effort etc) .. and I have found the number of hours put into this product don't match what could have been gained with a harder work, less fun method .. that said for those who are less academically inclines, Rosetta Stone is probably perfect
In light of above would say it is a very useful all round product and particularly good when accompanied by going through a book that focuses more on grammar.
(one more point, it should be much cheaper to buy an extra language after initial purchase of one language - shouldn't expect you to pay the whole price again, especially if all the pictures are the same)
