Amazon.com Product Description

Now you can learn a new language with the award-winning method used by the U.S. State Department to train diplomats. Proven effective by NASA astronauts, Peace Corps volunteers, and millions of students worldwide, the Rosetta Stone Language Library teaches new languages faster and easier than ever before.

We all learn our childhood language by associating new words and phrases with the world around us. The Rosetta Stone method replicates this process by presenting vivid, real-life images to convey the meaning of each new phrase. Instead of translating, memorizing, and studying rules of grammar, you actually learn to think in the new language. Vocabulary and grammar are integrated systematically, leading to everyday proficiency. It's the natural way to learn.

The Rosetta Stone Explorer contains 22 lessons for beginning learners with nearly 900 real-life images and phrases spoken by native speakers. It develops all key language skills--listening comprehension, reading, speaking, and writing--while its systematic structure teaches vocabulary and grammar naturally, without lists and drills. Includes previews, exercises, and tests for every lesson, with automated tutorials throughout the program. (Ages 6 and older) ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars A good method for learning a new language
I found this method made this language very accessible to a native English speaker. It shows pictures, shows the word, and plays the sound of the word so that they can all become connected together in the mind - a method that brings the learner much closer to fluency. I was glad that the method didn't rely upon connecting the Korean word with the English one - a method that requires the learner to first recall the "English" word in order to access the memory for the Korean one.

Unlike one of the other reviewers, I was also glad that the interactive version allowed the listener to listen to the properly pronounced word instead of showing a "phonetic" spelling. The Korean language has many consonants for which there is no English equivalent, like a letter between k and g, a letter between l and r, and a letter between p and b, and those can be extremely difficult and even more confusing to describe than simply listening to the properly pronounced word and trying to mimic it. The native Engligh speaker who tries to substitute an English "equivalent" for one of the actual sounds will be learning to pronounce the word incorrectly! And a language learned improperly in the first place is much more difficult to correct than simply learning it correctly the first time.

My biggest gripe about this method is that it doesn't take advantage of the inherent logic in the Korean alphabet - which is phonetic itself! If there was only a single chapter on the characters and their pronunciations, then this program would be complete. As it stands, I would recommend that the student of Korean first study the alphabet before beginnning this program. The lack of focus on the Korean characters and their pronunciations is the reason that I give this program only 3 stars.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not for complete beginners or intermediates
I was not very impressed with this program at all. I am a Korean linguist and I was hoping this would help to expand my knowledge, however, it is way too simple for someone with any prior formal language training. On the other hand, I noticed that it does not even teach the alphabet, a vital key to learning any language. The only reason it got two stars was because if someone could obtain training on the Korena alphabet, then this could be an excellent tool for beginners.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good START!
I made a mistake when buying this product thinking it was going to teach me korean. Instead it's just an introduction to the world of "rosetta stone" with just two units in Korean and a single lesson (11 lessons seem to make a unit) in each of a ton of different languages that I don't care about. The learning mechanism seems very good. In different activity modes you either see pictures and have to pick out the correct text or vise versa. Some activities only include sound forcing you to improve listening skills, some only include text focusing on reading skills. With repetition you learn very fast and can record your progress.

The best thing (which is not included in the explorer) would be to have the complete lesson set of the language you want to learn and the language you already know. That way you could learn both by visual inspection and by translation. But with the explorer you can only learn from translation on the very first (and only) lesson which is included in english.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Great Way to Learn the Language
I highly recomend this one. The program teaches you to read and write in a format that is both educational and even entertaining if you treat it like a game. My only complaint is that some of the spoken words sound very similar and it would be nice to have the phonetic spelling of the words there to look at just to help you recognize exactly what is going on. It's a minor gripe, but mine. If I could I'd only take a half point off for that. If your going to Korea and need to learn the language this is a must.

2-0 out of 5 stars Basics are missing
The format of this program is that the learner selects right answer from four photos depicting the written sentences or what they hear. It places heavy focus on reading. Therefore it is not appropriate for beginners who don't have prior training in Korean. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars A 3.8 material...
CAVEAT: This is a CONCISE math software which was not intended to replace your textbooks or any other medium of information to study math but rather it was intended to be annexed to your collection of subject. The package brings 4CD's.. College Algebra(1), Pre-Calculus(2), Calculus(3) and Statistics(4) all of which are equilavent in format and display. College Algebra has many topics starting from rudiment algebra(factoring-polynomials-rules for exponents example a^b(c^d)= ac^b+d etc.. to functions-logs-exponential functions-synthetic division-conic sections(equations for geometry objects example Circle equation r^2=(x-a)^2 - (y-b)^2 ..etc now each CD explains its topics in page(s) with a few paragraphs you may run into some words that are highlighted in blue thats for you to click on it for it's terminology if your having a tough time comprehending a word(example..ax^n-1 'a' is the coefficient of the term ax^n-1). Some topics have step-by-step visual with audio and written explanation for the algorithm of a given expression, equation, radical..etc some if not all topics begin with a video to give you an idea of the subject in the 'real world' before you begin to study it and how you can apply it. Of course it has testing to put your comprehension of a given subject.. which each test questions ranges from x-z in questions so the number of questions depends on the topic. The sense of humor in this software is ok for it's educational function. I didn't encounter any problems installing it in my machine(XP) or any problems whatsoever.. I've used this software with another software(Mind Math High School) and textbooks and works well in combination since every other medium approaches different subjects differently don't expect to have a complete rigorous explanation with this software. Overall its a nice software with its limitation on certain subjects.

2-0 out of 5 stars College Pro math
Very dry.. Runs with quicktime which is an older viewer with bug *lots of bugs*. Worked for 2 weeks on XP, then I got internal error message and hardly any support from staff, so far.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Software!
1)This is the most powerful and wonderful learning tool I have ever seen. You can click on the words to get better punctuation.

2) You can view what you are speaking. The pictures are good and speak directly from your word text.

3) You are able to read it in english and read and hear in french at once. And see it. Which allows easy memory of what you are saying.

4) Easy installation and offers great support and help guides.

5) You will learn quickly.

6) This is good for beginners because again it allows you to click on each word. It is even good for those who need to catch up on what they are speaking...

I believe it is a good price and worth your time and effort.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very helpful.
1. You can click and hear almost all the French words in this software. And it shows the meaning of the word and a little bit of grammar at the same time too.

2. The pronounciation is very clear.

3. Adequate and very good convasation and listening sourse.

4. Lots of activities to keep you learning- and they are all interesting!

5. BUT not enough grammars..

If you are bigginer with no French grammars, this software can be a bit hard.
But overall, this software is the best language learning software I've ever used and I strongly recommend it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Sorry I Ever Wasted My Money On This @%$#
I bought this title back in August when the reviews seemed overwhelmingly good. But it is obvious now that someone connected with this company was trying to boost the rating with false commentaries. This is truly the worst piece of software I have ever used. There is no rhyme or reason to the GUI, even the sound of the French speakers is muddled. I have the Rosetta Stone French Explorer that my husband and I enjoy using.We were surprised when we actually started the learn the language. But rather than spend the extra money for the Rosetta Stone complete software program I fell for this drivel. As my husband says, quite often you really do get what you pay for. This lousey piece of &^$# is heading for the Goodwill Store.

2-0 out of 5 stars Beware many of the other reviews, written by company...
It's hard to imagine a more transparent attempt to inflate the user ratings for these products. Over half of the five-star rated reviews are copy-paste identical. Not coincidentally, there is one such review for each language product they make. I'm glad Amazon is bunching them together so you can see this clearly. Beware!

A friend lent me the French version and it's mediocre and unstructured.

5-0 out of 5 stars Try this! Its good!
French Now by Transparent Language is excellent for language learning. It gave me everything I could need to learn and practice all aspects of French. It has an Alphabet Reference, Pronunciation practice features, Grammer tutorials, thousands and thousands of vocabulary words and phrases, and many games to help practice it all. My favorite feature is the Conversation practice which has you talking back into the computer with a microphone and then the computer will tell you if you answered correctly and how well your pronunciation is. In the end, I could not be happier with this software, it does everything its supposed to and more. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Much Better Than Physicus, But...
My wife and I are avid adventure gamers and, to help pass the time until "URU: Ages Beyond Myst" is released later this year, we decided to try "Chemicus". We played "Physicus" a couple years ago and, while we enjoyed it, we both thought that it could have been a much better game if it had tied into Physics a little deeper and if more effort was put into the adventure game design (look for my earlier review).

We just completed "Chemicus" and I can honestly say that this was a MUCH better overall attempt. Nearly all of the puzzles of the game are chemistry-related ranging from the fairly easy and logical to the pretty hard and requiring a hint or two (we peeked into the included walkthrough only a couple of times to get us unstuck).

The greatest improvement over "Physicus", however, was on the game design side. Like "Physicus" the graphics and music are lush and inviting. But, the scope of the game is where "Chemicus" shines over its predecessor. "Physicus" was just a singular environment or location to explore with very few cut-scenes and conveyances to enjoy along the way; both popular elements to a successful adventure game. In "Chemicus", even though the "subway" system was a little on the cheesy and repetitive side, at least it felt like we were transporting between unique locations (thank goodness the space bar forwards you through the animations). Plus, after solving some particularly difficult puzzles, we were rewarded with some nice cut-scenes; the balloon ride over the city being the best one. It wasn't on the same level as the bigger games like Riven and Schizm, but still an improvement.

One thing that "Physicus" did get right and that "Chemicus" fails on, is its link into the "Brain Center", the included chemistry text book. The content of the chemistry text is impressive, although, it looks as if the inclusion of animation and narration of some of the experiments and topics went by the wayside probably due to the added scope of the underlying game. What really annoyed us was the fact that we couldn't follow a link from the particular puzzle we were working on into the appropriate chapters or topics of the textbook. Along the way, you pick up "Knowledge Chips" that add chapters to your Brain Center and I suppose, if you kept up with the reading along the way, the new topics would relate to the new puzzles in the area. But, later on, when we were still working on the puzzle, it was very difficult to find those same topics in the textbook again. Like "Physicus", a link to just the appropriate topics would have been very useful.

Other than that, the game was very well written and designed. The user interface was very intuitive and easy to use. Could have done without the gratuitous, politically-correct diatribes on "greenhouse gasses" and "socially responsible science" that we have come to expect in these games (easy to ignore, though). We just started on "Bioscopia", but it looks as if that one more closely resembles "Physicus" in design and scope, bummer. I hear they are working on a "Chemicus II" game, so once we finish with URU, we will probably give it a go, too.

3-0 out of 5 stars Education and confusion come together in Chemicus
Okay, okay, I had fun. But I was also incredibly frustrated by the set up and "logic" (or I should say lack of logic) of this game and that truly detracted from my enjoyment. I wanted to learn something from this game, but I didn't get the connections half the time!
This game has so much potential for teaching chemistry, but the set up was lacking logic - you don't know what you are supposed to be doing, and you have to go back and forth between the various "stops", never knowing if you have really done what needs to be done. And because you have to go back and forth so much, you have to wait for each area to load when you go to another stop. I tried skipping the animation of the transport zooming through the tube, but it still took a long time for the stop to load. And you want to scream when you click on the wrong button and have to wait twice!!
One example of frustration for us is that you have to melt the ingredients for solder someplace other than the melting furnace before you put it into the melting furnace... How does that make sense? The logic behind why some ingredients are placed in certain places is very foggy, and sometimes you just don't have enough (understandable) information to figure something out, or the information is there but so obscure that you have to be a rocket scientist to understand it.
So you look for help, and all you are given is a walkthrough, when hints would be so much better... and would help you learn why you are doing things. I have thought of making my own hints to pass on to someone who would like to learn something from the game.
I ran Chemicus on a mac running OSX. It had to run on classic, so there were many times when it lagged. Don't know how it runs on a PC.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad for edutainment!
This is great game but it is NOT easily solved. It has Myst like elements where you find puzzles and solve them to move around. The game has a twist where you keep an inventory of items you will need in other areas of the game. The hints that came with the game were helpful..I hated to use them but after getting stuck and not making progress after a few hours I had to take a quick peek to continue. At first I thought it was too easy but then it got hard. If anyone writes otherwise they are not being truthful. I took many chem classes in college and not everything is intuitive in the game. Infact, sometimes you know what to do but the game only lets you do things in order to perform a task and you think that you are wrong (but you're not). You only switch CD's once ever and then you are done. I copied the help file to my computer so I would not have to reference it off of the disk. The only part I did not like was the navigation. If it had not been for that I would have given it 5 stars. . All in all I have zero regrets getting this game. I had just finished playing Myst III and I wanted another same type game. great buy

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Challenging and Quite Lovely
Your friend, Richard, a Chemistry buff, has discovered a strange amulet that, combined with certain experiments, allows him access to another dimension. You are supposed to meet with him to discuss his findings, but discover he has disappeared. It seems the denizens of this other dimension aren't too pleased! They think Richard's visits have upset the stability of their world and are holding him prisoner. Now you must cross the dimensions and prove your friendship by restoring a mysterious "Transmitter Molecule."

_Chemicus_ is a first person game very much in the style of MYST: you are wandering through a virtually empty world picking up clues and solving puzzles. From time to time, as in the MYST series, you might see another person from a distance or receive a transmission from your imprisoned friend, but there is no character interaction. So the draw of this game is not clever, pun-filled scripting, but using close observation, deduction and sheer brainpower to get from point A to point B. There is not very much more story than is given to you in the introduction; to enjoy _Chemicus_ you have to enjoy solving inventory-based mechanical puzzles.

And the scenery, of course. _Chemicus_ is a really gorgeous game. The "Other Side" is depicted as a place enough like our own world to be somewhat familiar, but enough different to give a certain sense of alienation -- again, much like MYST. The buildings and landscapes have a kind of organic texture that I personally find appealing. Unfortunately, there is no 360-degree movement; _Chemicus_ is a slideshow game. That means you're quite limited as to what you can view closely and where you can go. Personally I didn't find that too annoying (my husband hates it!), particularly as this game is so long and full of puzzles. I just didn't feel as put out by not being able to explore more fully as I might have.

Aside from the graphics and the sound -- mainly subtle f/x -- the strength of this game is in the puzzles. Because they are all based on chemistry, there is a logic to them that is often lacking. Some of the puzzles are a bit confusing, but none is arbitrary. It does in fact help to have had a course in chemistry and some math, however. The game provides a "BRain Center" to teach you what you need to know to proceed, but I found that often the information it gave you wasn't quite enough. However, I was pretty astonished at how many of the tasks could be accomplished with no specialized knowledge. In a way, this game helps point out how much we use chemistry in everyday life, without thinking about it.

I had some serious problems running this game, however. Despite having far more than the system requirements and using a full install, _Chemicus_ ran at a frustratingly slow pace. The scene transitions and animations were especially slow; I found them a good place to grab a snack or make a cup of tea. I also had trouble with the game crashing, often when I was accessing the Brain Center. If it hadn't been for those two things, I would easily have given _Chemicus_ 5 stars.

Several other annoyances were minor: games were saved as a list with each game defined by date and time only, so it was hard to tell what each one was. I consider this minor beacuse I don't tend to backtrack much. There was a lot of back and forthing -- inventory was almost never used in the place you found it -- and some of the locations were hard to keep track of. One or two puzzles involved somewhat obscure solutions, aside from the chemistry.

_Chemicus_ comes complete with a PDF walkthrough in case you get stuck. I did have to access this a few times. I didn't really like the way it was set up because, as walkthroughs tend to, it only told you what to do without telling you how. It also presents events in a specific order, which might not be the way you've played, _Chemicus_ being extremely non-linear. And I think it would have been helpful if you could have accessed the help file without totally exiting the game.

Although marketed for "Everyone" _Chemicus_ will probably appeal best to science oriented teens and adults; I don't think it will really appeal to just any adventure gamer. A long game, it took me about 30 hours to complete.

If you like MYST-type games and if you like science experiments, you will probably like _Chemicus_.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love a challenge!
Beautiful graphics, and really hard. This game is not easy, and that's the way I like it! (If you aren't like me, the makers of the game put a walkthrough on one of the CD-ROMs in case you get stuck.) This game is a first-person point & click in the style of Myst. There is a lot of area to cover and a lot of hard puzzles. It ran smoothly, and was hours of fun. For the length of time this game will take you it's also a really good value for the price. I liked it more than it's two predecessors (also good!), Physicus and Bioscopia. ... Read more

It's not bad at all; the new game, Graffiti, is quite addictive.
It's not intended to begin from the scratch, but is a good method to go further, if you have just the basis; it's a pity there's no division in units.

5-0 out of 5 stars Learn Gaelic!!!
This program is great! I had been looking for Gaelic language learning software for some time before I had found this and I am very happy I did. This software has so much to offer for learning Gaelic. I really appreciated the extra online features that expand and support your learning, Transparent Language really goes the extra mile by offering this. Irish Now immerses you into the language with conversation practices that feature video and audio plus you actually speak back with a microphone for the software to analyze your answers. To me this means I can experience an element of realism that makes me almost feel like I'm holding a conversation with someone in Gaelic. The software contains a tremendous amount of the Gaelic Language to learn in many different ways, which will keep you busy for some time. Overall, I couldn't be more happy with this purchase.

5-0 out of 5 stars Try this!!! Its good!!
I wish I had found this sooner. This product is great, it works exactly how it is supposed to. I bought this to obviously learn Gaelic and found that it was very good. It really helped me to develop my language skills in many ways. I found several features that really helped me work with my pronunciation. The audio features are so good that you can hear every word said by a native speaker of Gaelic. For practicing there are a bunch of games that you can play that are really good practice. My favorite feature was the conversation practice because there are so many of them for different situations and I found them quite useful also. All in all, this is a great program for language learning.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love it
I love this product. I really enjoy learning Irish Gaelic through it because it has so much to offer. The games are great, the audio features are so amazing and it is just a well done product in general. I would highly recomend this to anyone looking to learn Irish Gaelic.

Finding this program was like finding a four leaf clover. Previously, I had tried audiotapes, books, ect. but I learned more from this product in a few nights than from weeks of study with other products. Irish Now concentrates on four areas of language skills, Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing, and Vocabulary & Grammar. The audio features are so incredible that you can check to see if you are pronouncing words correctly. The videos make it possible to follow a conversational dialogue with scenes which help in understanding the context. I was able to gain a vast vocabulary through the games and large amounts of content. I would suggest anyone try Irish Now if you are trying to learn Gaelic. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy and fun way to learn Czech
I found the Talk Now! Czech CD-ROM very helpful in learning some basic Czech words and phrases. It is a difficult language to learn and this program offers easy games and options to keep it fun and motivating. While it doesn't get into grammar and more complex Czech, it's a great start for anyone wanting to feel more at home in the Czech Republic! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars 101 Languages WOW
101 Languages Of The World is a fascinating product. Not only can you learn the basics of many more common languages, but you can learn uncommon languages like Macedonian or Swazi. The great variety offered in this product makes it well worth the buy. There are many interactive games that help you to practice and learn the language(s). The audio features are incredible. There are native speakers for all the languages so you can hear the correct pronunciations and even speak into the computer so it can compare your pronunciation with that of the native's. 101 Languages of the World is great for learning a huge variety languages, for all purposes and for all levels of study.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great buy
I am very glad I bought this program. While it is true that the instruction is strictly beginner's level, and the native script is missing for most non-Latin based languages, this is still a great tool if you want to sample a large number of languages and decided which ones to take further with a more detailed course. This is also great for people studying a more exotic language for which there aren't any stand-alone audio programs for you to practice pronunciation.

But the biggest bonus for me was the included Global Writer word processor which allows you to type in all kinds of scripts, including Japanese, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), Korean, Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, Persian, Hindi and many, many others. This program alone was worth the twenty bucks! No more playing around with Unicode or fooling with special characters in Word. This is the best software value I've found in years.

If I had one complaint it would be that some minor languages are included, like Breton, Galician, and Quechua, but some major languages, like Cantonese, spoken by over 50 million Chinese, and many languages of India are not included.

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW
Great things come in tiny packages, I saw this on sale for $9.00 at circuit city, and though skeptical it would be worth much, thought $9.00 isn't much of a gamble. This was like a slot machine that paid off! I am just blown away by the quality of this program and the extent of language instruction involved. Granted, this is NOT a program on which to found your study of your choice language, but as a supplement and interactive aid on DOZENS of languages, you will find plenty to learn. Where this program is especially helpful is with minor languages where there just aren't many resources or opportunities to hear native speakers, or build a vocabulary. I'm personally interested in more exotic languages, such as Bengali, Lithuanian, Slovene, etc., and can now listen to the dialogues and speak along with the script, and I've committed much vocabulary to memory. This CD lets you hear genuine native speakers converse on a myriad of topics, and then test your knowledge of what you've learned. If you are interested in MANY languages, and like comparing various types (Russian w/ Polish; Sicilian w/ Italian; Finnish w/ Estonian, etc.) then you have a great research tool. Now if you're looking to bone up on a major language such as Spanish, French, etc., there is a good dose of vocab here, but you're probably better off with one of the many dedicated audio or software language programs - though assuming you too can buy this program cheap, what you will get as far as dialog practice more than justifies the price. The real value here, however, is the info and practice you get with rarer languages, and for the simplicity and compactness of this little program. Neat!

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Worth The Money
I am a student that studies 5 languages currently. I am very much into languages and I thought this would help me. I bought this software specifically for Icelandic, Vietnamese, Arabic, German, and Inuktitut. Turns out that the only helpful and useful language title was German. Most, actually all of the other languages just gives phrases to practice, and it is the exact phrases as the other languages. It makes learning a language fun, GUARANTEED! Dont purchase this software if you would like to learn a language that is on here. If you are really interested in learning a specific language, purchase Rosetta Stone Software. It may be a little bit of money, but it is definatley worth it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Diverse and Adaptable Product
101 Languages of the World is a very satisfying product for what it is. The great diversity offered in the product is amazing, being able to learn 101 languages with a piece of software is unbelievable. I really love the fact that in one instance I can be learning Farsi and the next be practicing my Tagalog. It is truely a great product because it is well put together software and has immense content. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

With the modern PC having a variety of possibilities of which traditional language-learning methods could only dream--voice recognition, video dialogues, and so on--the past few years have seen an extraordinary boom in language-learning software packages. However, as picking through this surfeit can be tricky, it is important to find a reliable brand, and the Learn Now! series is definitely among the best software packages.

The program comes equipped with 2 CDs, one of which has various key sections--useful "survival phrases", fun activities, conversations, and practicing speech against the voice of a native speaker--while the other has a thorough grammar tutorial. This combination is certainly a valuable one for people who are serious about learning a language, and the product is clear and easy to use: in role-plays, phrases are highlighted in a box and their English translations placed underneath, while the voice recognition software allows you to measure your own voice against that of a native speaker, and the games hone the things that have been learnt. Sections are tailored to various activities, such as getting around, going out, and business situations, while at any point you can call up a grammar tutorial which explains a particular point on which you are unsure.

In addition to these sections, the part on survival phrases will be of much use to those who have already reached a basic level. There are several practice dialogues based around commonplace situations--in the hotel, the bar, the airport, etc. Although some of the advice borders on the infantile ("When you decide to travel outside the USA, you will probably need a passport"), much of it is useful, and rounds out what is a well composed package for someone starting out on the road to using the language overseas. --Toby Green, Amazon.co.uk ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
Chinese Now is an excellent program for language learning. I am more than satisfied by its effetiveness and what it has to offer as a product. I found that it has very few flaws and is for all ability level speakers. Chinese is a hard language to learn and so far this program is the best method I have found for myself. Its a 5-star program and a good buy!

5-0 out of 5 stars What an amazing Tool
Hi I'm an English teacher who teaches English as a Second Language (ESL) to students in China. Before starting this job I took a Madarin Chinese class and found it very hard. I got this program and using it helped me immensly. I was able to put into practice what I learned in class through this program. This provided excellent practice in pronunciation and contains a very large vocabulary section. The games and media were very good tools to practice and learn with, especially Vocabulous, my favorite game. After the class, when I was in China, I still used this program to help keep my language skills sharp and to expand my knowledge of it. Chinese Now is a very good learning program and it works.

4-0 out of 5 stars Advance Level
Wow, this package is really hard. If you are a beginner, stay away. This package is a lot harder than Ultimate Mandarin. I consider myself intermediate, but this package blew me away. Anyway, other package like Rosetta stone chinese is pretty .... VocabuLearn is also a lot .... This package has tons of vocabulary which is much better than VocabuLearn Chinese. This package is much better than in a chinese classroom because you can listen one word by one word for pronunciation. Anyway, ChineseNow is very similar to a classroom experience, except that their vocabularies and sentences are very very difficult. If transparentlanguage company uses easy vocabularies with the same effort, I think they will be much more successful. Why? Because in ChineseNow, they worked very hard and put a lot of effort in producing this CD, but I just think that they are targetting the wrong audience. For me, after one year of Conversation Mandarin, I am starting on Ultimate Mandarin which this will cost me another year. Then, I will attack this ChineseNow CD again. This ChineseNow is one serious material, just too hard...

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good stuff for the price
I picked up version 8 of this at a store. The box said it works with Mac OS 8 and up, but did not specify OS X. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was a native application (carbonised) for OS X, so I did not have to run it inside of the Classic environment, like I do with a couple other chinese apps I have. So that is one big plus for it.

I find that it is a very good supplement to my college text book and other chinese apps. No one app (or book) can be the best at everything, but this comes pretty close. Not great at learning characters, the strength was in learning PinYin and vocabulary. This is version 8.1 I'm talking about, not version 9.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best for the Price
I have struggled through several introductory chinese language products, and to date this has been the most useful for conversational development. It is not a full integrated course, in that it is conversation and pinyin, but even my Chinese friends consider that a good beginning. It has an amazing collection of learning methods in an inexpensive package.

Chinese is extremely difficult to start. It has taken me many hours to get get down the most basic phrases. I found this, along with the Pimsleur programs to be the most helpful. ... Read more

Great product- but only contains 22 lessons. You must upgrade to get the rest of the level-one lessons (total of 92). It costs 140$ to upgrade. This should be mentioned up front.

1-0 out of 5 stars I felt like I wasted my money.
After the glowing review I decided to try this product out. After only 3 hours this disc was useless to me. There is very little information on here let alone usefull information. In no time one can complete the entire program. There aren't any pronouns included which I expected would have minimally been there. The disc also can't be run off of the hard drive so one has to wait for the program to load every few seconds while listening to the life of ones cd drive wear away. A great idea that has fallen horribly short. A simple phrase book would have been more beneficial.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, a great buy for the beginner
In New York Finnish language courses are hard to come by. I have been trying to teach myself to read, speak and hopefully write Finnish for years so I could speak with my cousins and grandmother overseas. It was a daunting task because books left me uninspired and tapes just don't work for me. Finally as a last ditch effort I took a chance on this program. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the program actually makes the process of learning language fun. The program and quizzes are colorful and engaging and manage to combine, listening, reading, understanding and speaking into one fun exercise. I have progressed with this program 100% faster than with the methods I've tried before. I definitely recommend this program to anyone who would like to start learning Finnish.
For those who are a bit more advanced or are anxious to get to the next level the Intermediate level for this program is World Talk Finnish. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great first words vocabulary builder
This is a nice program that shows you pictures and pronounces the words. And has quiz games where you match one of a choice of pictures to the word sounds. The games are very helpful in developing recognition of spoken Khmer words.

Since Khmer is so different from English, you can not learn Khmer from a book alone. You need something that will pronounce the words so that you can hear the sounds. I had some of my Cambodina friends listen to it and they said the pronouncenations were good.

I recommend this for the absolute beginner of Khmer. ... Read more
