Amazon.com Product Description

Learn to speak Mandarin Chinese through complete immersion. The Euro Method is an easy and simple way to learn to speak a second language. Based on the same techniques that allow a 4-year-old child to speak a language long before that same child can read or write, the Instant Immersion Mandarin Chinese CDs teach users to speak Mandarin Chinese quickly. The software provides interactive lessons that truly immerse users in the language. The two CD-ROMs enclosed are from EuroTalk, a European publisher of language-learning software. Talk Now! and World Talk will take users from beginning to intermediate levels using fun and easy-to-follow methods.

Talk Now! Mandarin Chinese is designed for beginners who want to start learning a new language as soon as possible. Whether on a business or vacation trip, or even when meeting a foreign visitor, Talk Now! is the CD to use. By hearing and practicing authentic everyday speech, the user's natural ability for language will develop. The EuroTalk CDs are designed to be fun. The program uses quizzes, games, and stories to help reinforce the lessons learned.

The second CD-ROM, World Talk Mandarin Chinese, is the next level up from Talk Now!, and goes on to the next stage with new activities, added dictation, and a new recording section. Topics covered include the calendar, building sentences, asking directions, and using numbers. With the recording feature, users can hear and compare their voices with those of a variety of native speakers. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars An outstanding bargain, but get a dictionary too
This would be a very good price for just the first of the two CDs. Both CDs allow you to listen to words and phrases from a variety of categories of everyday vocabulary such as time, numbers, colors, and food, and both offer quiz games to test your knowledge. I am still working my way through the first so the second is still beyond me, and I'm concerned that I might not be able to understand the second even after mastering the first. Fortunately there is built in help in English.

The first CD allows you to listen to two different voices (one fast and natural, the other slow and careful) pronounce a starting collection of words and phrases, record yourself speaking them so you can compare, and test your knowledge with simple quizzes of 4 levels of difficulty. In about a month I have learned enough Chinese to impress my Taiwan-born fiancee and now she wants to borrow it!

Caveats: You probably won't have enough vocabulary for comfortable conversation by the end of the first CD. But Chinese is hardly a simple language to learn and you will be amazed at how quickly you benefit from the course. Also, the first CD has some inconsistencies; the two voices actually say different things for some of the words. I used a Chinese-English dictionary to decide which was correct. If you are going to learn the language a good dictionary is a valuable companion reference.

2-0 out of 5 stars Okay for speech, but doesn't help with Chinese characters
This software is okay for learning to say a few basic words and phrases. The variety of activities makes it more interesting than a phrasebook. But it won't help you if you want to learn Chinese characters, which are the more interesting and important part of the language. If you want to learn to read Chinese, you'll need a good textbook and maybe a Chinese reading & dictionary software product like Clavis Sinica.

2-0 out of 5 stars keep shopping
re the first cd, talk now: The girl enunciates well but speaks with a tiawanese accent. In one case, (the ankle) the girl gives the wrong (tiawanese?) word for the body part rather than the mandarin word. The guy slurs his word endings a bit. The cd only has a handful of words, perhaps what you would expect to learn in the first week of a standard college class. The cd makers neglected to pay an artist to draw the pictures that correspond to the sentences so good luck there as well. I think they had a not particularly gifted first grader do the scribbles.
The second cd, world talk, does NOT pick up where the first one left you but jumps ahead by an unbridged leap. There is no real help provided. you find yourself learning which picture matches with which sentence without ever learning what they are actually saying. Futhermore, the second cd is boring and not at all engaging. surely there is better stuff out there.

4-0 out of 5 stars Amazon has their reviews mixed up.
The Amazon review is for Talk Now! Mandarin by EuroTalk....but the product is Mandarin Chinese by Topics Entertainment. Ignore the Amazon review.

1-0 out of 5 stars If want to learn 5 words...
I was a complete beginner, and wanted to learn Mandarin. I said LEARN, not acquire four or five phrases or words. I mistakenly bought this cheap software (like said in other review, get what you pay for) to begin my learning process. The CD's proved to be better frisbees than tutorials and are gathering dust on my computer desk. If you really wish to learn a language DO NOT buy this software. Translations are sketchy, explanations non-existant, and pronunciations deceptive. You don't know what words of a phrase mean what, that tones are vitally important to Chinese, and they don't even bother with pinyin. I recommend other means of learning language than this piece of software... ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Now you can learn seven languages (Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian, Japanese, and Chinese) 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 PowerPac contains 22 lessons with nearly 900 real-life images and phrases spoken by native speakers for each language. The program develops all key language skills--listening comprehension, reading, speaking, and writing. Systematic structure teaches vocabulary and grammar naturally, without lists and drills. There are previews, exercises, and tests for every lesson, with automated tutorials throughout the program. Graphical speech recognition displays your voiceprint and compares it with the native speaker to help improve your pronunciation. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A great way to try the best language learning software
This is by far the best language learning software out there for the DIY language learner.It uses total immersion without any English (this is a good thing).I own the full length courses for both Russian and German 1 and 2, and while it was no small investment, it was definitely worth it.The Rosetta Stone software is like the Pimsleur tapes in that it's the best of its kind and you get what you pay for.I bought this program to try it and passed it on to a friend when I bought my full courses.

The "powerpac" is a good investment if at least two of the languages out of the seven on the disc are ones you want to learn.If not, you're better off choosing the specific explorer program for your selected language as single language explorer programs are half the price.

Again, this is great software but you won't acheive any level of fluency with the abbreviated programs.But since the larger programs are extremely expensive,it's a good way to see if you like the system before you take the big plunge and spend the bucks on the full courses.

3-0 out of 5 stars NOT for serious language learning
Excellent, easy-to-use interface creates a fun environment for an introduction to seven languages.But do not expect to reach any level of fluency because there just isn't enough material for any one language.

I would buy this package simply to see if Rosetta Stone style of learning (use of pictures while hearing the words for the object in the picture) would be appropriate for you.You can't go wrong if your expectations are low.

4-0 out of 5 stars Say 'The boy is under the ball' in seven languages!
An earlier reviewer claimed that Japanese was not included, which is incorrect.There are in fact, three versions of Japanese available.While the Explorer series are essentially hooks to get you to buy into the far pricier full versions of the software, you still got a lot of language for your dollar.Don't expect to learn a whole language on this CD.Don't even expect to have any degree of fluency.However, as an intorduction to a language, PowerPac can't be beat.The interface is intuitive, engaging and frankly, a lot of fun.A variety of activities work your brain in different ways, helping retension.There is also a 'voice analyzer' feature that compares your voice to a native speakers, but it's far too frustrating to use effectively.Other than that blemish, you have a great facile language learning powerhouse.

4-0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Value - Easy Language Learning
The Rosetta Stone, with Spanish, French, German, English, Dutch, Russian and Chinese basic language instruction, all on one CD, is a lot of learning in one small package.Putting all the languages together inspires a very intuitive interface.Learning, grouped by categories such as food, numbers, actions, etc., is at your own pace.You can practice to your heart's content.Besides a stand alone tool, it's a great supplement for regular language instruction.As you can tell, I find it quite helpful.But make sure you have your own dictionary for reference when using the program.

4-0 out of 5 stars nicely structured, very user friendly
My CD-Rom does include the japanese lessons. I find this product extremely accessible and very nicely structured. The lessons progress in easily understandable segments. For me, it is an ideal way to start learning a newlanguage, as you always have a reference between pictures, the written, andthe spoken words. My only criticism is that I would prefer some grammaticalexplanations, especially for chinese and japanese. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Fairly good
I'm still lucky that Italians seem to speak english and like doing so.

The CD did help me understand more and if I had been a good student I think It would have been quite successful.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good not so good
I really liked the interactive part of the cd. Makes you actually learn the words via recognition. I have not been able to find any other software that teaches this way. The draw back with this title is how few words are available... I have been searching for upgrades additional cds of words but... so far they dont exist.... great way to learn limited by what is available.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Basic and not intuitive
My wife and I visit Italy often and thought it was time to at least attempt to learn the language. We ordered several books and programs to learn Italian and found the Instant Immersion program to be the worst of the lot. I would not recommend it for anyone that is seriously interested in learning Italian

5-0 out of 5 stars Instant Immersions Italian
Instant Immersion Italian is the best cd that I have found for learning Italian. It is fun and easy. I actually wanted to sit down and learn after just learning numbers and playing the games. It helped me to learn the language on my own and you can't buy that feeling anywhere! This program is a fast and fun way to learn Italian...or any other language too. Classes are boring and they cost too much but this cd is fun and makes you want to learn. I highly recomend this cd and all the other Instant Immersion language cd's. (I'm also learning Japanese. Stick to Italian, trust me.)

1-0 out of 5 stars Too basic...
Childish guessing games..no meat to this learning experience...do not recommend if you are anxious to learn the language...need more substance. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Save Your Money!
If you're interested in actually LEARNING Farsi (Persian), this software program is NOT the resource to turn to. While Eurotalk deserves five stars for their incredibly user-friendly lesson interface, this program consists of nothing more than quick snippet lines for business travellers who need enough to survive 2-3 days on an overseas trip (i.e. "Where is the hotel?" "Can you direct me to a phone?" etc. etc). The only redeeming feature of this program is that a user can actually hear Farsi being spoken (and thus get an idea as to lingual sounds). See ya...

4-0 out of 5 stars Talk Now! Farsi
The program is great and very helpful. It has a printable dictionary for each section as well as a portion of each section where you use a microphone to speak the words being taught to help you say everything properly! I love the program itself, the only downfall is that you'll really like it and when you want to move to intermediate and advanced you find that the publisher doesn't have Farsi for either of those!! I think it's pretty sad that they start you off and then don't have Farsi in intermediate or advanced but at thelst the beginner's program is great! ... 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! ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Okay, but a memory hog
This typing tool is useful for novice typists who want a quick, but fun way to improvise and increase their technical skills on the computer keyboard. The only problem that this program takes up most of the memory and even if I got the computer which has a whopping heap of unused memory, Mavis Beacons gobbles it eventually as if it is hungry for more. The graphic, when used on the older computer is slow and cumbersome, but if you want to find a better typing software that uses only half of the memory, I'd keep on searching.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent program to learn to type with
About three or four years ago, my parents forced me to sit down and work with this program until I could type fast. Thank goodness they did! Now I enjoy computer programming, creative writing, and surfing the Internet at a much faster speed.

I don't have the speed of a professional typist, obviously, but including errors my typing speed is on average over one hundred words per minute. Parents - if you want to help your kids out, get them this or a later version of this program. I'm not in high school yet, but I'm already enjoying the benefits of getting my work done well and efficiently.

about 7 years ago while I was a junior high school student, I learned to type using this software (the earlier version, of course) on my Apple Performa 580.

This is generally a great program. The Games are fun (especially the road race).

3-0 out of 5 stars Talk Now Urdu
The Talk Now series is good because they are available in almost any language you can think of. It's one of the few available in Urdu. As for really learning the language, Talk Now falls short. It completely neglects teaching grammar and verb tenses. It teaches many nouns, but is lacking in adjectives and verbs. The only section where you learn any kind sentences is the "phrases" section, but without any knowlege of sentece structure, I had a hard time figuring out all the words of each sentence.
It also doesn't convey Indian or Pakastani culture. For example, half the words in the "food" secition are english. The abundance of english words wastes my time. If you're going to Pakistan, when do you need chopsticks? It should include pakastani foods.
There are other poor odds and ends. Overall it is lacking in verbs, adjectives, grammar, sentence structure, and cultural flavor.
On the other hand, the recording ability is an excellent feature. Being able to hear yourself and compare it to a native speaker is very good for pronounciation. It also includes a bunch of games that makes learing easy and fun. If you are planning on taking a language course or supplement, this program is good for starting you off, but don't count on it advancing you very far. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great!!
This is the first time I have ever been so excited about learning a language. I've tried using just about every other method to learn Finnish (except actually going and living in Finland.) I tried out this program for the first time today and it measures up. The plusses of the program is that you can get English instructions easily if you need them (a safety net) but otherwise the program immerses you into the language. The program feels like you are playing a game but the stinky trick is you are actually learning at the same time (awesome!). The only minus is that I have yet to find a quit button on the World Talk Finnish program (but I tend not to be overly observant or patient) and the Talk Now program had better graphics. Mind you my experience with the Talk Now program is more extensive, but the World Talk program definitely reaches par. Using this program is the best way to learn especially if you have difficulty learning languages using books and tapes and don't have the luxury in enrolling in a Finnish language course. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars BASIC -BASIC ...VERRRRY BASIC
I bought this CD ROM to learn some practical basic words and phrases to communicate with some friends who speak Punjabi. The program DOES teach some words and phrases (and names of colors, foods, body parts, etc.,) But it only allows you to learn so much. (I was hoping to learn a bit more than "please, thank you, sorry, Where is the bank?" I was hoping for enough basic grammar to put together even something as basic as "The dress is pretty." The program DOES make learning the limited words and phrases fun! I'll give it credit for that.
I just wish it had been a bit more in-depth. Also according to the pamphlet that came with the program, there is no "intermediate" program for Punjabi from Eurotalk. (Attention: Eurotalk!!!) If there were, I'd buy it!

5-0 out of 5 stars useful product
I have to disagree with the other reviewer who disliked this product so utterly. I found it valuable for Calculus review using Mathematica. I love Mathematica and I believe the Calculus & Mathematica courses initially offered in 1994 from the Univ. Of Illinois at Urbana-Champagne (they were offered free by the authors way back then) were a great idea to make the study of Calculus very exciting. So I used this product to effectively review.

By the way, it seems the other reviewer is a little prejudicial when he categorizes all business majors in the "for dummies" category.

Recommending this product would be like, recommending some one to waste their hard earned money on buying something totally useless. This product only reaffirms the well known basics any calculus student can understand. The hard unknown problems are not listed at all. I won't recommend this product to anyone. I made the mistake of buying this product and you shouldn't DO IT. Not only is this software incomprehensive, it has some hidden features which require extra payment. For ex. if I want an integration, not only will it give me the wrong answer but it also require extra payment for me to integrate questions. The problems listed are example problems in the beginning of any calculus section. What the examples lack is sometimes too little explanation. Perhaps the pictures aren't illustrative enough. Who knows? Maybe you need more examples. Maybe you just want the software to basically solve hardest known problems in the book. But this software will only show you what you already can find out in any text book. After all that, you would atleast expect the product functions properly. NOPE! It crashes the computer and my system requirements are more than adequate. If you ever get a chance to look at some videos made by California Institute of Technology on Trig, Calc Physics, and Calculus. They are a great source of help. If anyone has trouble with Calculus with Business Majors, take Calculus for Dummies. If anyone has trouble with Calculus as Engineer Majors, I suggest you ask a teacher for help or hire a tutor. There is no adequate resource for engineers on Calculus except the textbook which is written in GREEK. Doing simple problems is OK! The problem arises when there are difficult problems something past question number #30 Application problems. There needs to be resource that adequately explains hard problems in a comprehensive manner. I wish there was a product that could comprehensively explains Calculus Projects practically. But this software ISN'T ONE OF THEM! Don't tell me I didn't warn you to stay away from this product! ... Read more
