Rosetta Stone Vietnamese 1

I have used the Rosetta Stone to learn Vietnamese. It did help me to learn new words and I have remembered them all after a year of trying the Rosetta Stone. It uses pictures to teach you new words and it helps you to remember it better than just hearing the word and then telling you what it means in English.
It did not however help me so much with speaking to Vietnamese people. It taught me things like "the dog is jumping" and "the girl is wearing a blue shirt" but not a lot of conversational things that you would use with people you have just met, maybe if there were a Vietnamese level 2 and 3 I would have learned more.
There were a lot of things I learned with this program than I had with other ways of learning this language and the tool used to check if you are pronouncing things correctly is a very useful thing for Vietnamese because pronunciation is extremely important in the Vietnamese language. It also shows you how things are spelled which is something that you don't get with learning a language with audio alone.
If you have learned some conversational Vietnamese by some different method or are trying to teach your child a new language then I think it is great the system really does work.
