    Highly Recommended!!!!

    First of, I created an account here just to respond to this review. I don't even shop at Barnes and Noble. I do, however, own Rosetta Stone software. I was a bit surprised to see that it only had three stars here. I see that one unlucky (and grumpy) person has skewed the review ratings. To give this software one star is insulting. My husband purchased the French version for me in 2007 for Christmas. I installed it on my computer, completed a few exercises, and quickly forgot about it (I had two little ones very close together around that time). A few days ago, I decided to break out the Rosetta Stone again. Unfortunately, my husband had reformatted my computer so I had to re-install the software. After the installation was complete, I realized I was unable to activate the product. (Here Rosetta Stone practices SMART business by allowing only one copy of your version to be active at any given time). I called customer service and withing ten minutes, my software was up and running. The customer service rep explained that in order to activate the software on one device, it must be DE-activated from the prior device. Seeing as though my computer was reformatted by my husband, he did not know that this step was necessary. Once I started the lessons again, I noticed I remembered much of the information I had learned four years prior (with no practice).

    Bottom line: This software WORKS! Like anything one is trying to learn, it takes effort, but the benefits are quickly visible and lasting. I am looking to buy a Spanish version next! As long as you have your Activation ID, customer service is more than ready to help you get on your way to learning that new language!

    I took Spanish in middle school, high school, and college, and while they were all beginner classes, I never felt the language "stuck" with me. My sister studied abroad in Spain, and before I went to visit her, I purchased the Rosetta Stone Spanish (Spain) version. It was wonderful! Being able to move at your own pace, and not with a class, was extremely helpful to me. In addition, the immersion format (you see it, hear the words, speak it, and type it) really helped solidify the lesson and as a result I felt confident traveling to Spain, purchasing bus tickets, ordering food, conversing with my sister's host family, and understanding a little of the history during tours. I am by no means fluent, however I only used the software for three months!! I am now purchasing the Latin version to help me with my career as a nurse, It will help me provide better care to my Spanish speaking patients.

    Rosetta Stone software has several nice features...(visual clues
    attached to words, pronunciation aids, common sense grammar structure
    oriented towards beginners, and an easy to use screen format.
    But...so do other software language products. Rosetta Stone lays
    claim to being the "first" with this approach, but that does
    not make Rosetta Stone worth the amount of money charged. Other
    competing products work as well (and in some cases better) than Rosetta
    Stone. Clinching the "one start rating" however, is the fact
    that Rosetta Stone's DRM (digital rights management) license is
    EXTREMELY difficult and problematic. Virtually any PC
    glitch/problem/ or just plain bad luck on the load will guarantee that
    your software won't work...and....as several reviewers (here and
    elsewhere) have noted, you will NOT get support from Rosetta Stone.
    If you never have a Windows upgrade go bad...(and cause a reset of the
    registry)...never lose a harddrive or replace a PC...never have a virus,
    or never have any problem at all with your PC....then your view of
    Rosetta Stone will obviously be much sunnier. For most of us however,
    occasional PC glitches/issues are a fact of life. .... and after
    almost ANY issue you run a large risk of losing all access to your
    expensive Rosetta Stone software. Once the license key is damaged/lost
    or has to be relaoded...you are out-of-luck.

    Beware, this is not for sale, it is for Lease. Even if you never opened it, you can't resell it because it is "copyright infringment". Stay away from this expensive waste of money and use your money for a real class.

    I will be looking for a new program, even though it means spending more money. I have had so many technical difficulties, the help line is next to useless and the program is not worth the money. Do the research and find a cheaper, just as effective method to learn a language.
