Fantastic learning assistant I spent several years learning Japanese then several years forgetting it. Rosetta Stone's intuitive learning companion has made it extremely simple to regain what was lost, instruct me further, and imbue confidence. The option to get away from Romaji and into Kanji is a great immersive trait. My only minor complaint is that Writing lessons will not work on any device other than a computer even though it is similar to any other lesson. Otherwise, I love this application!
Fun and rewarding I'm practicing Vietnamese because I have a friend at school who is from Vietnam, and its hard for her to learn English sometimes, so by learning her language, I can help her. And so far its been an amazing, fun, and easy to learn Vietnamese quickly. But the only flaw was that I can't learn how to speak Norwegian on here. And the reason I want to learn Norwegian is because my mom, brother, grandma, and Grandpa are Norwegian and I'd like to communicate with them in their language. They've learned English for me, now its time for me to learn Norwegian for them! 😊
Works but more affordable options out there. As the title says, this program will work to a very limited extent. I've been doing Rosetta Stone for a while and I can tell you, unless you can practice it more outside of the app than with the app, you'll find that in spite of how well you do on the app, most of your vocabulary will fail you. But this will accelerate your learning. However, if you're really set on learning via smartphone, I would suggest downloading the dulango. Essentially the same thing, but free.
Fabulous, if you are very serious...! Use Duolingo for the first dozen lessons (at least) before you take the Rosetta Stone plunge (and keep coming back to it - they compliment each other very well). You will find HUGE benefit if you do. If you do not, you will likely become too frustrated and quit. Take notes from each and keep the Google Translate available for the infrequent occasion that you cannot quite infer the meaning of a word or two, and you will find the success you wish for!
Yuk! I never got started. I downloaded the app on to my Note 5. Spent several hours trying to create an account. It wouldn't take my Hotmail, Yahoo or Gmail addresses. It said "Bad Email Address When it finally took my yahoo address, it would not allow me to select a country to complete the registration. Couldn't find a help page or contact us page to assist with the registration so after hours and hours of unsuccessful attempts, I reached my frustration level and decided to uninstall the app as soon as I finish this review.
Overpriced I'm assuming that most of the people who gave this app glowing reviews did so only after using the demo, not the full program. I paid the $200, and it is definitely not worth that price. First, many of the lessons are not compatible with Android phones. It also freezes up more than any app I've ever used. Save your money and check out Duolingo, which also isn't perfect, but is at least free.
