Rosetta Stone: Good and Bad
by Jeremy Harris
I first heard of Rosetta Stone from all the commercials I have seen everywhere. I knew that my mom wanted to learn French and I German. I was hesitant to request to buy it because of the fact that it was OVERLY advertised which usually means that it is a poor product. We bought it anyway, and at first I thought it was very easy to learn the language. I was on a roll until they were introducing sentences with certain grammar rules that they don't even think of explaining. So, while your confused on how they are using "ma" in one sentence for one word and "mon" in a different sentence for the same word, you get almost EVERY QUESTION WRONG!! The thing I don't like about is that they expect you to understand it without ANY explanation. So now I come to my conclusion, It is useless to even purchase ANY language learning software because you don't get a full learning experience. In my opinion, it is best to learn the language from a teacher who speaks the native language. Overall, Rosetta Stone is just ok if you want to get started learning a language.
