Rosetta Stone - A Wonderful Tool for Learning
(Lexington, Kentucky, USA)
Now, I began using Rosetta Stone in highschool before I entered college to help me learn German. I didn't really have any expectations, but I decided to give the software a try, anyways. To my surprise, it REALLY helped me learn German! In class, I was leagues above my classmates, on par with pronunciation and construction with the teacher, and now in college, the situation is much the same.
I STILL use Rosetta to help me through college classes and keep me ahead of the rest of the pack. Some can just listen to German and pick up the language. Rosetta Stone greatly amplifies this process, and makes it available to anyone willing to put in the effort. By combining real life situations, images and audio, and then applying quiz-like, pressure situations, Rosetta Stone creates just the right balance required for effective language learning.
My experience was with the German-English software, but I'm sure the rest of equal caliber, based on how well designed the German-English version was.
