Expensive but worth every penny if you are dedicated

Despite some poor reviews by some, I believe this program could be worth it if you are dedicated. First of all, guaranteed you will learn spanish if you use this program daily. Also your spanish accent will be perfected by using this program.

Despite some poor reviews by some, I believe this program could be worth it if you are dedicated. First of all, guaranteed you will learn spanish if you use this program daily. Also your spanish accent will be perfected by using this program.

The program comes with many resources for learning spanish. The computer program is excellent and fun and comes with games and reading material. The CDs are great for listening to in the car and really help to practice. Last, the ipod/iphone app. If you don't have an ipod touch or an iphone get one. Download the Rosetta Stone Mobile Companion from the iTunes store. You put in your Rosetta Stone user name and password and can download the Rosetta Stone lessons anywhere with a WiFi connection or anywhere if you have an iphone all though i would not recommend (data cost). This app is awesome and is almost just like the computer program but it is fast paced for reviewing what you have learned previously.

If you are not going to spend at least 30 minutes a day at the computer and you don't use the other resources that they provide and you won't be strongly dedicated then don't bother. I think most people who give this program a bad rating just aren't dedicated enough. If you are strongly dedicated keep reading.

Tips for Learning Spanish:

Learning Spanish is very complex and difficult. Don't expect to use this program and be speaking fluently after using it for 1 month. Although you will have learned and incredible amount after 1 month there is an incredible amount to be learned. Get your self a dictionary or better yet a translator put a translator widget on your desktop it will help. Buy Sparknotes Study Cards Spanish Vocabulary (1000 Card). These study cards are awesome and helped me huge. While watching TV you can practice with these; all day practice with these. The #1 key if you want to learn Spanish is dedication. There is no get rich quick scheme in learning Spanish. Practice daily till it makes you sick is the only way.

Me? I'm going to study Spanish abroad Cuernavaca for a 1 month to practice what I've learned and get Spanish drilled and set in my brain. Can't wait.

Thanks Rosetta Stone

purchase from Rosetta Stone not Barnes & Noble

Do not purchase Rosetta Stone through Barnes & Noble. Purchase the item from Rosetta Stone. The price is the same but Rosetta Stone has a six month return policy while Barnes & Noble has a 14-day return policy.

    Avoid Rosetta Stone

    The overriding problem with Rosetta Stone is it's licensing. Once you buy the software and get it installed....hope that nothing EVER goes wrong with your PC. If you have a hard-drive problem....or a virus....or have a Microsoft update that fails and does an automatic recovery....or simply do an upgrade to some other software that causes re-writes to the Windows registry...you are completely out-of-luck with regard to ever using Rosetta Stone again. The license disappears and the software refuses to work. Your calls to the Rosetta Stone Customer Service lines, will not help.
    Rosetta Stone as a learning tool is OK...(not great but OK)....but be aware that you did NOT buy the software, you only rented it...and if something happens to the electronic license on your PC, you have to go buy another whole package if you want to use it again.

    Pay attention to the reviews that warn you to avoid it....there are other packages out there that don't leave you holding a very expensive "empty bag".

    THIS IS AWESOME

    Although I have only just started, I'm on my way to learning. I found myself repeating words in my sleep, and knowing what they meant. Incredible!
