5-0 out of 5 stars Forget about boring grammar exercises and learn with fun!
The complete course version 6.0 is just amazing! You'd practice the whole foreign language competence while having fun and forgetting about the spinning hands of your watch. Particularly interesting are the 3-D phonetic animations and the dictation exercises, but there are lots of other enjoyable activities to make you improve your skills indeed. I would recommend this software in particular to those university students who wish to take full marks in their dictation exams and to those who don't realise where they fail to pronounce a foreign word correctly or a sentence with a natural rhythm and a perfect intonation. The software highlights your mistakes and brings you to perfection! You can also choose to have the translations of the written texts in the other five languages available, in this case French, German, Italian, Dutch and Spanish. Just choose the wished interface language each time you start the program. Last but not least, you'll get the three levels in a single box at a very good price. Don't miss this occasion and enjoy! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Forget about this product!
As the other reviewer says, "Fonetiks is a unique publication in more ways than one..." The curious fact is that the exactly same comment can be found at their own website. If you use a search engine and type in keywords like the name of this product, you can get to their website pretty easily, and you will see how the product looks like. When I bought this product, I was dissapointed so much. If there is a no-star option, I would rather choose it because this software does not help anything. As I, myself, am an EFL(English as a foreign language) speaker, I found this product a good-for-nathing. You can only hear few sample sounds from these ten languages listed above and the sound quality is also baaaad! I am a student of linguistics and I was taking a phonetics class. I thought this CD-ROM might be a helpful tool for my studies, but it turned out to be a waste of money. If you are taking a phonetics class for some languages and if you have thought that this might help you, no! Just forget this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fonetiks Pronunciation Guides with Instant Sound
Fonetiks is a unique publication in more ways than one. It's the world's first CD-ROM where you can simply mouse over text to hear it spoken - quite a big step forward in language learning, making an instant connection between the spoken and written word.

But it's also a new way of looking at languages: each language is divided up into six types of sounds: single vowels, diphthongs, triphthongs, voiced versus voiceless sounds, consonants, and stress/intonation. The result is that seemingly 'hard' languages like Mandarin or Japanese suddenly become quite easy to get to grips with.

Another unique thing about Fonetiks is the fact that it presents seven varieties of English: American, British, Australian, etc. - ESL learners won't find this anywhere else, at least not in this breathtakingly convenient mouseover format. The same goes for Parisian versus Canadian French, and German versus Swiss German.

As if this were not enough, there is also a unique "Spoken Grammar" for ESL learners, plus conversation patterns for English, French and German. More than 40 people comprised the "cast" of authentic native speakers that put this production together. This is a unique, major resource for people who love languages. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

With version 8.0, Learn to Speak English ranks as one of thefirst software titles to customize language learning specifically to auser's needs and skills--functionality we hope to see more of in futureforeign-language packages. As with most ESL (English as a secondlanguage) programs, a key software design problem is creating a productof equal usefulness to people with first languages as diverse asSpanish, Vietnamese, or Russian, among others. Because of thistradeoff, you should have approximately one year of instruction inEnglish or six months of living in an English-speaking country beforestarting with this software.

New to this version are four key features:

  • Preassessment testing: Test your written and spoken English skillsto see where you need to begin.
  • Study plan: Set up a schedule and goals to match the schedule youcreate.
  • Subject-specific topics: Choose lesson topics that match yourgoals and needs.
  • Progress tracking: Keep track of how you're doing.

In addition, the Learning Company has set up a Web site for onlinesupplementation of the product, including language study groups and apersonal-tutor feature. At first perusal, the Web site shows promise,but until the site is better developed, the CD-ROM and accompanyingworkbook will remain the focus of your learning.

A caveat: based on the included animations, you might think Americansare all middle-class white people; we hope version 9.0 corrects thisserious lack of multiculturalism. Overall, however, Learn to SpeakEnglish is one of the stronger products on the market. It makesexcellent use of voice-recognition technology to create interactiveexercises, and it covers vocabulary, grammar, comprehension, andwritten skills in a balanced way. --Erik Macki ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners or refresher course!
I think the other reviewer who rated this item and gave it very few stars may have confused this with another french language program because this one does not come with an audio tape as you see above. Instead it's 4 dvd-roms that are just terrific. Real practise conversations using your microphone, lots of grammar information, pronunciation drills and quizzes. This software is terrific. I am looking forward to their new version which is coming out soon. I hope it includes onscreen flashcards and more extensive grammar drills, quizzes and help. That would be my only suggestion. For additionaly french grammar help I would highly suggest; "Essential French Grammar" by Seymour Resnick, "French Verb Drills" by R.de Roussy de Sales, and you will also find extremely helpful, "Pronounce it Perfectly in French" by Christopher Kendris, PH.D which was released by Barron's. Good Luck everyone!

4-0 out of 5 stars Version 8.1 Great Product--but software flaws with Win XP
My daughter (age 12, and fixated on all things French) has been trying to learn French through a variety of media--workbooks and audiotapes, Muzzy videos, textbooks, none very stimulating--so I bought this CD for her to try.

First, let me start with the software itself: it was real discouraging when I first installed the French 8.1 Deluxe edition--kept getting error messages about MicServer Pass (error 26). Had to shut down probably 30 times the first few hours of use. Finally determined that there seemed to be some kind of conflict with other programs/graphics on my system--primarily a Japanese Hello Kitty screen saver installed. ALSO, I learned that you just can't click that mouse as fast as you'd like in the Play/Record mode, because if you click faster than, say, a 5 sec increment, the system freezes. I assume it's because the program just isn't developed enough to handle incoming audio recognition and cursor commands while simulataneously processing video/graphics/data transmission. Well, what do you expect, it didn't cost that much to begin with. So I have learned to slow my mouse clicking down a bit. In addition, I highly recommend you run AdAware, Spybot, and some kind of Utilities Clean-up/Fix program before installing this--and do what the installation instructions suggest, END all other programs running in the background. Finally, I would say that the less processes you have running while you are using this feature, the better!

About the program itself: I learned French in middle school, as well as 1 semester in college. (I also have a total of 3 years high school/college Spanish experience). So, based upon my knowledge of foreign languages, and the varieties of media I have used--the classroom, workbooks, textbooks, videos--I would say this software is the most entertaining method of learning a language. My daughter, who has NO foreign language experience, says this system of language learning works best for her, thus far.

This program--although not labeled so, take my word for it--is designed for conversational French. The strengths in this program are the French speakers and their pronounciation. Their phrases are short and to the point. In the beginning, the phrases are everyday phrases and the key to learning them is saying them over and over again; basically, MIMICRY [the accompanying 184-page reference book is just a written form of all the narrative you hear on the software, it is NOT a workbook or dictionary]. I told my daughter DO NOT RUSH through this, stick with the same lesson for at least a week. There are optional grammar notes for those interested or for those (like me) who never paid much attention to grammar exercises in school, but they are not the key to learning. After all, you don't see young children reading grammar books and they can speak quite well.

The voice recognition feature is not entirely accurate (I said ba-ba-ba-ba into the mic once and it gave me an excellent rating!) but it provides enough feedback so my daughter feels like she is making progress, mainly by copying the French speakers. It trains the ear to recognize French sounds.

As you go on in this program, you can pace yourself when things get a bit more challenging. Some of the phrases don't have much to do with everyday life, but they tend to teach the repetition/variation of common phrases over and over again, so it builds on the foundation. Using the program myself, I can determine where I am rusty. Also, I see my daughter decide (by herself and by the automatic scoring) where she needs to go back and review. The interactive functions--visual, written and verbal--really help reinforce what you've learned.

I would think that if one continued with the entire program and put as much effort into it as in a class--say, at least 1/2 hour a day up to 1 hour a day on weekends--then, by the end of the CD course one would be quite confident and fairly proficient at speaking and understanding spoken French, or the written level used by a daily newspaper in France.

1-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work with Windows NT or 2000!
purchased this to spruce up my pronunciation but found that this version doesn't work with Windows 2000; however, I've now ordered version 8.1 which, supposedly, does work on my platform and will write another review after I've received and tried it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good!
It's a pretty good program over all and pretty easy to use!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great tool to hone your accent
In general, this isn't that great a tool for learning French. I gave it a decent rating, however, based on its one redeeming feature, the speech-recognition feature. This feature is an excellent tool for practicing pronunciation of French.

In the "Vocabulary" section, you have a list of words that you can click on to hear a native French speaker speak the word. You also have a needle-style gauge with buttons for record and playback. You hit the record button, pronounce the word, and the gauge shows how well you did, from "tourist" to "native".

This might not be an optimal tool for honing your accent, because it doesn't give you any indication of what you're doing wrong. It's an excellent tool otherwise, because it allows you to practice endlessly and because it gives you decent feedback. I had already had explanations of what shape your mouth should be for pronouncing certain things and the difference between the 'ou' sound in vous and the 'u' sound in tu. If you can get that, and if you have a decent ear, you can accomplish a lot with this software.

Anecdotal evidence: I used this software for about half an hour to an hour a day for about six months before moving on to instruction that involved real people. Everyone that I spoke to in French told me that I sound like a native French speaker.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Software!!!!
I'm puertorican and i learned english in school.I understand the language when somebody talks to me, but i was having problems in communicating,expressing,and speed.I bought this software and is PERFECT,it has a video dialog ,vocabulary with voice recognition that tells you if you're pronunciating the words correctly,vocabulary practice,grammar explanations and practice, role play where you can be one of the actors and form part of the dialog then you can listen to the role,quizes in listening, writing and speak (the last one is my favorite because the actor talks to you and you have to speak one of the answers "you can listen the answers by click on it to know the pronunciation" and if you don't pronuciate it well he tells you that he don't understand),it has games too. Now i can speak the english with no fear when i go to USA for vacations.
!!!YOU'RE NOT GONNA FIND A BETTER SOFTWARE THAN THIS TO IMPROVE YOUR LISTENING, SPEAK, AND WRITING !!!!!!

Awe c'mon Berlitz! You guys can do better n this! You could've at least included a diagnostic test for the lessons.Jeeez. The set does include a nifty little conversational audio CD. Pretty cool.
