5-0 out of 5 stars Must have for education purposes
I bought this program to help myself memorize a lot of Spanish vocabulary for a college course and it helped out very much so with its flashcard like set up. Not only did it have a very large amount of vocabulary but it also had sound recordings of the vocabulary so you can also learn the correct pronunciation. However, Before You Know It Spanish is not only limited to use in Spanish. This software also allows you to create your on lists for flash cards and then memorize those also. This makes it very useful for learning by memorization and enables it to have many different uses such as having to memorize formulas for math class. These lists you can make are also able to be put onto Palm Pilots/Pocket PCs and you can also share them with friends because each list has its own save file. My opinion of this program is that it does everything it is meant to do and it is a must have educational tool. You can not go wrong with this software. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A whole new way to learn spanish!
This program takes spanish language learning software to a whole new level. Advanced spanish is an appropriate title for this program since It literally immerses you in the language with an actual spanish soap opera episode. You can practice in a number of ways, as well as take quizzes. Some of the activities include a visually based vocabulary program. In this area of the software the program shows you a still from the movie with an object circled and you name the word in spanish. Others include listening for the missing word in a conversation- harder than it sounds. You can watch the movie with and without spanish subtitles so you can follow along with the script or try to watch it without. Some minor- very minor- technical glitches not really affecting the operation of the program or use of it prevent me from giving this a full 5 stars. But a really great, well rounded buy! ...

Amazon.com Review

Early versions of language instruction software were little more than CD-ROM equivalents of lessons on audiotape. Instant Immersion Spanish, on the other hand, represents the next generation--software that exploits multimedia to its fullest in order to make learning Spanish easy and entertaining.

This two-CD-ROM package starts with a simple vocabulary builder that divides words into categories--colors, foods, and body parts, for example--and then drills users on their Spanish equivalents. Instructors translate each word while providing an image to match the spoken concept. A user's memorization skills can then be tested in a handful of matching games, while pronunciation is honed by speaking the words into a microphone and contrasting with the instructors' voices.

The second CD-ROM is where the immersion element comes in. Once users have learned the nouns and phrases on disc one, they are presented with a tougher challenge. While still following a basic matching-game format, instructors speak in complete sentences, requiring the learner to pick out familiar terms and work out the larger meanings of the game clues in context. Along the way, more vocabulary and some basic grammar are assimilated.

Instant Immersion Spanish provides an excellent route to picking up enough "getting-by" Spanish for a Latin vacation or to supplement class study. Some users may struggle with the transition to the tough love of the second CD-ROM, but this process is a mirror of the real-world experience of going to a new country where English is not the dominant tongue. The immersion kicks the brain into high gear and accelerates language acquisition by presenting a serious challenge--all while keeping the course of study in an entertaining game format. Those new to Spanish will definitely benefit from the practice of listening for words they know.

This first-rate content, combined with bright and easy-to-follow graphics, makes Instant Immersion Spanish a terrific opportunity for anyone looking to grasp the basics of speaking Spanish in as little time as possible. --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful for beginners, children, and travellers!
These cd-roms contain lots of fun interactive games and activities, which are especially good for children, but nevertheless enjoyable for people of all ages. For someone who knows very little Spanish vocabulary, it's a wonderful place to begin. It's also very helpful for travellers trying to learn helpful phrases and important words before a trip; in fact, there's even a section helping you to learn how to understand directions!

However, I DO NOT recommend these cd-roms for people with an extensive background in Spanish. If you've taken a couple years of Spanish and have built up a moderate vocabulary, these cd-roms will not challenge you. Also, I do not recommend this program for anyone who wants to learn Spanish grammar. These cd-roms, as their title suggests, emphasize vocabulary, and speaking and listening skills, and they do not touch on grammar AT ALL.

Overall, I consider this an excellent program for anyone planning a trip to Spain or Latin America, or for use as a supplement for *beginning* students of the language (an additional book on grammar would help). I really do enjoy these programs, and I just ordered the Russian cd-roms just like it. Since I don't know a word, it'll be perfect.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Spanish Program for Beginners
I purchased this program knowing almost no spanish. I found it to be a very helpful tool to help me learn the basics of the language.

Pros:
The program is designed in a game format in which the user completes lessons and quizzes to gain points. The speakers are clear and easy to understand. The quizzes are really fun too. The instructor on the screen says a word or phrase and you have to click on the matching picture. I had a little trouble at this when I first started but I soon caught on. There is also a memory game that the user can play to review everything covered so far. That game, I found, was the most helpful way of retaining the information I have learned.

Cons:

There really is no introduction. You just pop in the cd and BOOM, you begin. The navigation is a little annoying because not everything is labeled so you end up having to click on the help button to have everything spelled out for you. Other than that, I really can't find anything wrong with the program. Like I said, I highly reccomend it :)

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
I should have read Jason's review before buying this. CD 1 was ok; I can say 'Telephone' '17' 'brown' in Spanish. But CD 2 is... I don't understand ANYTHING. I'm returning this to the manufacturer - they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

5-0 out of 5 stars SO MUCH FUN I can't stop!
Okey, so I was not a natural in highschool Spanish class like I had hoped to be (I did get a C after all).But now years later after trying cassettes and workbooks alike, I can now have fun learning Espanol like I always dreamed to do! You will too if you pick this CD set! Or better yet get the 5 CD-ROM Deluxe Edition for about $$$. I can't go a day without playing this!
I love the interactive games that they have and getting the "Si!" from the computer characters. It keeps score of your points too! The best part is that you can record your voice and practice that famous Iberian lisp "th" (for "c") without having to be concerned about anyone hearing it!
Look for the very fun "game show" on the second CD. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Can't run software on a computer with 1GB memory
I have the same problem on a computer running Windows 2000 with 1GB memory. The software won't start and gives me the error message "Director Player 6.0 - This program requires at least 3MB of free virtual memory to run". I know there is more than 3MB of free virtual memory on my computer. I tried different virtual memory setting and found that setting virtual memory to 128MB would cause the software to run. It is obvious that the software has mis-calculated the available virtual memory. It interprets virtual memory > 1GB as less than 3MB virtual memory. I have sent email to the technical support at Encore and are waiting for their reply. I share the previous reader's opinion that setting the virtual memory to a lower setting is not an acceptable solution.

However, after I started the program, I like the interface and graphic. The software is better than "Mind Power Math Middle School" from the Learning Company. I also like that it has a game where you can test your skill.

I will write an update after I receive a reply from Encore.

3-0 out of 5 stars Way around memory problem
Haven't tried this software but had same problem with some other software, the error message: "Director Player 6.0 - This program requires at least 3MB of free virtual memory to run". The only fix is to change your virtual memory settings to something below 500mb or to exactly 4000mb. Of course, I chose 4000mb since I have a large hard drive and almost 1 gig of memory on this pc.

So the full fix is:
From the Windows XP desktop, select the Start button, right-click on the My Computer icon, and select Properties from the resulting menu.

Click on the Advanced tab to bring it forward, and then select the Settings button within the Performance section.

In the Performance Options window, click on the Advanced tab to bring it forward, and then select the Change button in the Virtual Memory section.

Click the Custom size button...
Change the Initial size (MB) setting to 4000
Change the Maximum size (MB) setting to 4000

Select SET to accept the change, which will close the Virtual Memory window. Select OK to close the Performance Options window. And select OK to exit the System Properties window.

1-0 out of 5 stars $40 + junk = angry customer
This is a faulty and buggy piece of software. It will not run on my PC (XP Home)without me changing my Virtual Memory from 1000 mb to 200 mb...what an absurdity! The developer offers no solution other than to change my VM everytime I want to use their software.

Well, forget it. They're not the only game in town.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's Great!!
I have the Elementary Advantage, and I'm about to go into Middle School Advantage. I find these programs are excellent. I am a homeschooling parent, and the Elementary Advantage suite have done a great job in assisting me with teaching my child. I've learned a lot myself. My son is about to enter middle school grades, and as I explore the the Middle School Advantage suite, I marvel at how well its put together. I have not run into answers that are wrong as was the claim of one reviewer. But, that does not bother me because you will find wrong answers in educational books written by the best educators. I focus on the how well I am taught the subject. If I can catch the wrong answers then I was taught well. I paid only $24.99 for each suite. I also have a Dell Dimension 4600, and the programs run fine. For all those having a problem running the program. You better get a Dell, Dude! For the money, IT'S GREAT!

4-0 out of 5 stars this is a very good piece of software.
This is an effective language learning program. most of the negative reviews revolved around the difficulty of the content, the lack of guidance or the "unorganized" interface. I feel the approach of this software is one of the best in its price range. lets face it, learning a language is difficult no matter what claims are made on the box! this program (like the name suggests) immerses you in spanish language. it's your job as a motivated student to find your way around (not unlike stepping of a plane in a foreign country) and in the process learn a good amount of spanish. yes, the video appears difficult at first but you can pause it at anytime and if you right click on any word you get a translation and pronuciation of the word. you can also click on the translation button and see the text in english as you hear it being spoken. there is even a control panel where you can change the difficulty level and the speed of dialog among other things. the grammar sections are comprehensive and there are plenty of exercises which relate to and reinforce the lessons. the interface and navigation bar lets you jump to any are of the program you want to work on. the exercises change depending on which lesson is selected and there is a progress screen where you can track your progress. if you supplement what you learn here with other stuff like watching your favorite dvd's with the spanish subtitles on or reading bilingual magazines you will really benefit from the solid foundation this software offers.

1-0 out of 5 stars Piece of crap!
I can summarize my feelings regarding this product in three words: PIECE OF CRAP! This is quite a pathetic program hiding in a nice glossy box. The software is like so ten years ago- makes an atari game seem like i am playing xbox! I feel fleeced and am unable to get my money back due to a no return policy where I bought it. There is no cohesiveness to this "program" whatsoever; rather a mishmash of nonsensical puzzles and drills. And for someone who has no prior Spanish knowledge--you will indeed be instantly immersed -- immersed into chaos!

1-0 out of 5 stars Huge Disapointment
All in all I am very displeased with this product. It was very hard to use at first and from a learning standpoint it was ineffective. Your best bet is to check out a product called Spanish Now by a company called Transparent Language, they seem to have the best software available for language learning.

1-0 out of 5 stars Glad I paid nearly nothing for it
This UK-produced language-learning software title is pretty bad. I'm glad I paid nothing for it after rebate (except sales tax).

The box design is attractive, and you think you are getting a good deal with 7 CDs. But opening the package you'll find no manual, just a single installation note apparently written by a non-English speaker. The installation program is a joke; it would crash on my Windows 2000 machine unless I chose the "maximum" option. Very crude indeed.

Then, I ran the demo as instructed, which doesn't even have a quit button! I had to use Task Manager to kill the program! Not to mention that annoying, echoing "Tell Me More" at the beginning. Really annoying... childishly so.

Which brings us to the actual content of the package. There are 4 components to this "deluxe" package. Four CDs make up the Tell Me More program, which is basically a language exercise program. For example, in one set of exercises you'll be asked questions and expected to answer them. The computer will analyze your answer and respond accordingly. In another set, you watch some poorly produced video footages and just listen along. There are also word puzzles like hangman, etc. Overall a very poorly put-together package. For some reason, it would only run in 256 colors on my machine, which is a very unpleasant experience.

Another CD contains a program called Spanish Plus basically teaches you the language, and this is where you should start, since Tell Me More requires you know something about the language already. But there's not too much material in Spanish Plus to make a satisfying learning experience. And sometimes the program would just crash on my Win2k machine.

A third component is a vocabulary builder CD-ROM. Again, very crude. The 4th CD-ROM is an audio CD, although I actually haven't been able to play it in my portable CD player so I don't even know whether it works or how it is. Judging from the other reviews, not good.

I also bought the German package, and was glad I didn't open it so I could return it after finding out how poor the Spanish package was.

If you can get this for free, it can indeed be a good value if you don't mind the poor interface and poor exercises. Otherwise, do not spend money on this.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worth what we paid - nothing
This program, which claims to be WIndows XP compatible, is nothing more than a Windows 95 program. It would not install into the Program Files directory until I used the Progra~1 form. Next, when the program launched, it resized my screen to EGA resolution - yes, this program is THAT old. Finally, it claimed it couldn't fidn the CD even though it had just been installed from that CD.

As the title said, it is worth exactly as much as we paid - nothing. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A good value for the money
My daughter enjoyed this program. She learned a lot of different words. The animations are clever and she enjoyed completing the spaceship to get Quixel home.
This is a good program to build a foreign language vocabulary.

1-0 out of 5 stars Beware!
I thought this would be good for my students until I tried it out myself. First I tried the Italian. When I discovered that they translated "potato chips" as "microchips", I was surprised. In telling time, they expressed the correct feminine plural but displayed the incorrect masculine singular "il due" for 2:00. Now for the French...I learned that "potato chips" were "eclats" as in "paint chips". Wrong chips both times folks - and good luck in a restaurant! I stopped there. It's a shame they never got a native speaker to check it before releasing this as an educational item. They did get native speakers to read aloud the vocab lists however. That's the one-star part. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good but could be better
The program is very useful & easy to use. It is only suppose to be a quick overview & not a complete course. What they give you is good; however, I kept coming up with words I wish they had included. It's divided into specialized groups...First words, numbers, food, shopping, time, colors, countries, body. I didn't need countries or body at all. I'm not going to have a conversation with someone & recite all the countries I can say in Brazilian, same goes with parts of my body. Maybe a few body parts could have been included in other sections...but besides "take my hand", "I'm touched in the head", or "my ear aches" (you get the idea) I'm not going to be discussing details with anyone. As a first time traveler there I felt I wanted to know many words & phrases that weren't included. Restaurant, What's your name?, My name is..., address, ocean, mountain. Fish was included but beef, pork, and chicken weren't. Numbers only went to 20. I think 30-100 at least would have been useful. I still would recommend this as an easy, helpful beginning. It needs to be supplemented with other information to be better. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Product -- for Europe
This is a wonderfully easy-to-use English-Spanish dictionary and vocabulary tool that is stable (from a computer standpoint), and has good -- but not overly verbose definitions. As a physician who cares for many Hispanic patients and a teacher of medical Spanish, I find it invaluable for rapid reference after just a week. HOWEVER, the English pronunciations are VERY British and are TERRIBLY confusing to the Latin American students to whom I have demonstrated the program. After I contacted the company, they informed me that they have NO PLANS TO INCLUDE AMERICAN ENGLISH. Likewise, the Spanish is European. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO U.S. STUDENTS who want it to improve their pronunciation for use in situations where Latin American Spanish is spoken -- like the entire Western Hemisphere! It is analogous to foreigners who learn British English and then come to the U.S. When their accent is combined with their attempts at British pronunciation, they are very difficult to understand for most gringos. The vocabulary games seem rather basic, but I haven't explored them sufficiently to comment since I employ the program as a quick reference while writing in Spanish. In a nutshell, an EXCELLENT DICTIONARY for quick reference while writing, reading, or learning. TERRIBLE for learning American English pronunciation (e.g. a student studying for TOFEL) or Latin American Spanish pronunciation. (The following is based on limited observations.) The vocabulary games are rudimentary, and I hope that they will be more sophisticated in future releases (as far as more vocabulary catagories) to allow students to concentrate on specific areas easily. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Innovative and Very Intuitive
This product is absolutely amazing. It is an extremely useful educational tool for language learning and much more. The Before You Know It Multipack is designed for language learning, especially vocabulary, by basically using electronic flashcards. The Multipack version includes an enormous amount of content for Spanish, French, Italian and German languages and is a good place to start learning the languages or for studying/refreshing. Now this is great for language learning but in my opinion the best feature of this program is the ability to make your own electronic flashcards for anything and you can also share them with friends through email and on Palm Pilots. To me this is a must have for studying anything that you need to memorize. It is so useful and very helpful in these aspects. It also shows you the cards you have the most trouble learning more frequently than the ones that you do not have trouble remembering which in the end means that you will have a very effective studying method. This program is very user friendly, simple to use and has plethora of uses. I believe that even if you do not want the language aspects the program, it is still more than worth having just because of the ability to create your own cards. Ideal for students, teachers, and anything else that requires memorization. Have no doubts, Before You Know It definitely earns its 5-star rating. ... Read more
