I have only tried the Tagalog or Filipino course and still on my first lesson, and using only a small screen Samsung Tablet. But everything works so far. I may buy the entire course for $150, although I think it is a bit too expensive. ---- It is now roughly 3 months later and I have gone through about half the course. I have learning a lot, more than I have learnt in that time going to classes. The lessons are very structured and keep building upon previous knowlege on what you have learnt. Having a wife who speaks the language helps of course, particularly when I am not sure of the meaning of the picture. I think the meaning in words should be given with the pictures at times, or a method of accessing this, otherwise some students may get confused. Having access to somebody who speaks the language is useful, as is having a good dictionary and textbook on the language to help understand the gramma. On the technical side, normally the app works very well, although I did have problems of logging into the app several times. But you do get good technical help.
The way of teaching is great, I just so badly wish I could unlock every lesson and not have to pay or pay so much I guess. It's we are tease, the few lessons it gave me but even though I passed all with 100% , I guess it only goes as far as a bottle 5 short lessons and then have to start buying the whole thing for more than $100. All these really cool games are free, it should be free to learn a new language, it's kind of become an important and very helpful thing in America to know Spanish and ASL
After using this app for a few months it randomly kicks me out and I no longer have connection. I provided email proof of app purchase. Rosetta Stone support claims they cannot find records on their end? If you are thinking about purchasing, don't bother. Waste of money.
I enjoy the app because it encourages me to use the optician 10x more than when i was using the software tired to my computer. This would be 5 stars if it included games or other features. For the price we all pay, this should be comprehensive.
It's a GREAT platform! However there are SO many BUGS!!! About 50% of the time it won't let me sign in, another 50% it will say I've completed lessons that I haven't. And There are bugs when it's reading you the text during a lesson. It won't say the whole world, you'll just catch the end of it. You would think after paying so much money they would have a reliable and BUG FREE APP.
Great app to brush up on your language when you do not have your computer. The only recommendations I have would be that when paused you can still read and review the slide you are on, rather than go back to selecting a slide. Also it would be nice to see all of the answers on the slide once completed for a full review.
