5-0 out of 5 stars Amazingly easy to learn French course
I never thought that Fench would be as easy as it is. Really amazing French course for novel people into that language. First step in learning. Great multimedia development, in order to improve pronuntiation. If this is your choice for your first French classes, you are right, this is the best choice.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good up until the 3rd CD
I've been working with the IM German now for some time (it's part of the 4 CD set). I had fun and learned at a faster pace with the first CD. The 2nd CD was quite a jump. I think you have to do a little studying on the outside before 'mastering' this CD. However! I tried out the Dictionary CD, and it is HORRIBLE!!! I've been studying German long enough now that the speaker isn't even pronouncing the words right. It sounds like someone reading the words for the first time. Be careful this CD can throw you off. If someone has a explanation for this let me know!

1-0 out of 5 stars Couldn't even get past installation
Installation of the German TalkNow module would hang with no explanation on Windows 98SE. I "Opened" the CD next and tried to launch instal32.exe and instal16.exe manually instead of from autorun. Both hanged. When I attempted to autorun the CD again it produced an error message "Astra32 - System Error -5, 12, 0". The only printed documentation consists of a poorly xeroxed page inside the box with installation instructions for Windows 3.1, 95/98, and a Mac.

This product definitely did not impress me.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best and the cheapst!
This program lets you learn 4 languages for $30! If I wanted to d tha at learnalanguage.com, I would have to pay up to $600. Ths is awesome!

4-0 out of 5 stars 'Talk Now' and 'World Talk' deliver as stated
If you want a program to teach you how to speak the basics in a fast, fun, simple way, this would be a good one. If you want a program that will teach you as if you were taught in school, including grammar, writing, and verb conjugation(I did, she saw, we went, etc.), you will probably be disappointed. This program gives you two CD-ROM's per language, one for basics, one for intermediate level learning. The first CD, "Talk Now" gives you excercises in foods, colors, phrases, body parts, numbers, time, shopping, and countries. Under each heading, you play two word games, record yourself speaking and compare it to native speakers(your computer needs a microphone to do this), print vocabulary flash cards, and play a "Memory"-style game with the words you learned. They work on the premise that people remember things better if they've learned in fun situations. Though a bit cheesy at times, it _is_ fun, and you _will_ build your basic vocabulary. The second CD jumps more to full sentences, listening skills, identification, and writing dictation, all still in game-like form. It's a bit of a leap in knowlege, and can be a bit frustrating, but it's a good start for 'learning by listening', much as you would if you were struggling in the actual country, only without making a fool of yourself. At this level, if you have never been exposed to the language, the help/? icon becomes your best friend. Still little in grammar and verb forms, though. To get the most out of it, I would also recommend purchasing a pocket dictionary of the language(s), and maybe even one of those "500 [the language] Verbs" books, so you can actually have a better understanding of your vocabulary and how to form sentences. Overall, these programs are fun & effective as a means of learning to speak, by yourself (or with a friend), on your own time. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The Kaplan Biology & Chemistry Essential Review presents core information on these two subjects with an appealing, easy-to-use interface. It covers hundreds of key topics, including photosynthesis, respiration, and molecular conversion. It also includes a complete periodic table, and exercises to build a solid science vocabulary. The practice tests help students track progress and identify areas for further study, and the brainstorming, outlining, glossary, and bibliography programs will improve homework assignments and papers. Students will also benefit from tutorials and quizzes for each chapter, test-taking tips and strategies, context-sensitive help, and word-search and crossword puzzles that reinforce content.

Students can begin the program however they like. Some prefer to read the table of contents, choose a chapter, and begin their learning through reading and practice tests. Others may choose to explore various portions of the program, such as the tutorials, Tips and Strategies section, or the glossary. Students can also begin by taking a 25-question diagnostic test to determine mastery level. Upon completion of the test, Kaplan Essential Review provides a report of correct and incorrect answers. For each incorrect response, the program offers the correct answer and explains why it is correct.

From that point, students can decide how they would like to direct their learning: They can explore a subject in which they need improvement, study the tutorials provided, work on crossword puzzles covering the content, read through the glossary, or take practice tests. They can then retake the diagnostic test to compare results. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Language Explorer: A Limited Sample of a Good Product
As a foreigner living in Thailand, I have seen a good many resources for learning the Thai language. Some are good, some are bad and a few rare gems shine out from the crowd. The Rosetta Stone method falls into the "good" category and I've found it useful in expanding my vocabulary and working on my Thai grammar. It's a solid method of repetition and continual quizzing that builds your understanding of the language quickly.

The "Language Explorer" product is the first two lessons from the larger 92-lesson "Thai Level I" product also available here on Amazon. It is not a complete Thai language course. It is designed for the learner who wants to experiment with the Rosetta Stone method without dropping over a hundred dollars on the full program.

This program covers the following two lessons: 1-01 Introductory Nouns and Prepositions, and 1-02 Verbs: Present Indicative Tense. As you might gather from the titles, this is the beginning of a serious course covering vocabulary and usage. Because it is so limited, the "Language Explorer" product is not going to be helpful to tourists or anyone seeking to learn quick Thai phrases.

If you're serious about learning Thai and want a helpful computer-based tutor, the Rosetta Stone will fit the bill. However, you might want to pass on this "Language Explorer" product and move right to the full "Level I" product instead. If you need a demo of what the product can do, you can find one at the Rosetta Stone Web site and save your money from the purchase of this product.

I give this product 1 star, not because the method used or quality of the Rosetta Stone product, but because the "Language Explorer" version is a glorified demo and is of limited usage to a student of the Thai language. The full "Level I" product gets a much higher rating.

1-0 out of 5 stars Better off to hit your thumb with a hammer.
What a worthless product. Been to Thailand a few times and I am slowly learning the language. I thought I would improve my skills on the home front. Well.....I guess I have a new coaster.
The lessons start with four pictures, where you hear the Thai translation. It starts with boy, girl. dog ,cat. By lesson 10 you end up with boy petting cat. Or girl under table.
Overall you end up learning 40 words, 35 of them useless. You don't even learn "Hello" or "Thank you" just random words. So unless you have a passion to say "girl inside airplane" in Thai, I would recommend you save your money and learn Thai from a "Tuk-Tuk" driver when you arrive in Bangkok.

5-0 out of 5 stars I was learning Thai easily and quickly, almost immediately!
Definetly worth it! Now I realize just how ineffective a lot of the other books, cassette tape sets and CD-ROMs are that I've tried. With the "Rosetta Stone Thai Explorer", the first day--within the first 15 minutes--I was recognizing basic Thai phrases well enough that I received a 96% correct score, when tested!

One of the way it teaches you is by displaying 4 pictures that are highlighted one at a time, with a Thai phrase that is spoken as each item is highlighted. This is repeated a few times, then the pictures are scrambled up, the announcer speaks one of the phrases and--somehow, you just remember--really without even trying!

Pretty ingenious way to learn--and painless too! ... Read more

This interactive learning experience is fun, colorful and very humorous! It makes learning enjoyable! The only drawback to this program is that it is quite difficult to understand at first.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's all about coaching
Successful scoring on the GRE has less to do with what you know, and more to do with your preparation. This software got results for me. My results were similar to other reviews on this site. The diagnostic test, lessons, flash cards, and practice tests simulate the real test VERY well. I highly recommend this software. If you take the time to follow the software's recommendations, you will find the coaching pays dividends.

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing and Inaccurate
This review applys to the GMAT software included in this software bundle. I was quite frustrated with this software. Yes, there are some good lessons and practice tests here, but I think your money might be better spent buying a book and using the FREE software provided by the GMAT organization. The navigation and sophistication of this tool were disappointing. Examples of this include the following points: 1) Navigation is extremely unintuative. Expect to spend a couple of hours learning how to use the software. This is especially frustrating because what could be an easy tool is made difficult by the unneeded flash of a confusing interface. 2) When you are taking a test there is no explanation of how long the test will take. Some are short, some mid length, others the are the same length as the GMAT test. The full length practice tests are obvious in their length but the others keep you guessing. 3) There is no way to print out lessons worthy of later review. You can review the test problems you miss, but you can't print them out for later review. 4) The software is slow. I understand some lag while the test software attempts to figure out the next question, but waiting between menus seems ludicrous. 5)Worst of all, the software was rating me at a level over 100 points less then what I actually ended up receiving on the GMAT. I took the PowerPrep sample test given out free by the GMAT organization (see their website) and it scored me within 10 points.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty helpful, but a little corny
This program wasn't too bad, but it did seem to take quite a while and I didn't find it very easy to pick out one thing I really wanted to work on. Also the guides are pretty boring and corny. I just wanted to dive into it and not deal with the "foo-foo" stuff. I was mainly looking for geometry help since I never have taken a geometry class in my life (including high school). I do think it improved my overall score in the verbal and analytical sections. As for the math, I would have done fine IF I hadn't gotten a ton of geometry questions. I think 75% of my math section was geometry. Murphy's Law I guess. My original scores when I first took the Kaplan test were V=490 A=650 M=400. My final scores from the actual GRE test were V=560 A=790 M=500 just for reference.

4-0 out of 5 stars Worked great for the GRE
The primary thing I would change about this program is the stupid cartoony interface and the constant need to hit ESC to forward through the little animations and movies. I also wish it came with a regular test booklet for the times when you want to get away from the computer.

I used this product for the general GRE. I found the testing diagnostics helpful for developing a studying strategy, with which I was able to address my most serious weak points. I studied for about a month leading up to the GRE, and was very pleased with my score. The practice tests I took with this program gave me a really good sense of time and pace, and I was actually surprised when the real GRE ended at how much surplus energy I still had. Incidentally, I scored much better than the program had predicted I would, and likewise I found the practice questions slightly more difficult on the whole than the actual test.

This is a good product for someone like me: a couple/few years out of college and eons since basic requirement classes, or someone who usually tests pretty well but who needs a crash refresher on standardized testing, or someone who is new to the computer-based test thing (I have a hard time thinking while looking at a screen). Caution though: I'd also recommend that this program be augmented with some good old book studying too, or you could be disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best way to study for the GMAT
I used this software for the GMAT CAT and I can certainly say that it helped me a great deal. For starters, the test interface is almost exactly the same as the actual GMAT CAT. This is really the only way to study for a test that you must take on a computer. Working from a book, you won't get the same emphasis on the timing. That is where it really helped me. I learned how long it takes to get through the test and where I should spend more time and where I should move a little more quickly. The interface is a little confusing but once you click around a bit you get the hang of it. The tips they give about the way to approach each type of question are quite good. Using these approaches I was more confident about certain answers which allowed me to move quickly through most answers and save enough time to really work on the head scratchers. Be advised that the score you get on the included CDs will be much lower than the score you will get on the actual test. The reason is the practice tests seem to give a lot more hard questions than the actual GMAT. But I think that's a good thing. Everybody knows that the best way to learn is to make mistakes and learn you will. I also downloaded the free PowerPrep software from ETS but since they only give you 2 full length tests I used them for before and after tests. On the first Powerprep test I scored a 700. On the CD tests I generally scored in the mid-600's. After finishing the CD (my only study material), I took the other Powerprep and got a 750. When I took the actual GMAT I scored a 760. ...

Amazon.com Review

What kind of a language learner are you? Do you esteem the umlaut? Have you studied a little German before? Does it bug you when people say "Porsch" instead of "Porsche"? Yes? Well, congratulations! You are an anal-retentive, intermediate German student--and Learn German Now! will be a satisfying, helpful software option for you. (If you're not quite this informed or persnickety, then click here for an applicable beginner's title).

In highfalutin' teacher lingo, the software uses "authentic language" and hasyou practice using "communication gap" exercises--and you'll be happy to know this is a widely used university approach. In lay speak, this means you will:

  • Watch videos of native German speakers interacting naturally with each other (the acting's not half bad, either)
  • Read printed versions of their dialogues
  • Listen to the dialogues word by word or segment by segment
  • Practice pronouncing dialogues word by word or segment by segment using the enclosed microphone
  • Apply vocabulary by filling in new words from the dialogues, or in othergame-style activities like crossword puzzles
Appealing to an anal-retentive nature and true to the Transparent Language brand, each sentence is given with a full translation, and each word has itscomplete grammatical information (such as tense and case) glossed. You can also slow down videos and recorded speech to hear more clearly, and you can play back your own pronunciation to compare it with the native speakers'. It's painful, we know, but helpful.

Note that to achieve true success with this program you should know at leasta bit of German first and be somewhat comfortable with terms like "accusative case" or "second person." Also, the software gives pronunciationfeedback with gimmicky graphs that will make sense to you only if you've studied acoustic phonetics--nonetheless, the interactive pronunciation and the videos are the most useful features.

Overall, the use of multimedia and the practice modules are well designed, making this an excellent intermediate-level program for people who want to maintain or expand their German skills. Caveats: The software works with both Mac OS and Windows, but some extra stuff on the bonus CD works only with Windows. (This should not at all dissuade Mac users, however.) Also remember that it's rather antisocial to practice conversation only on the computer, so take what you learn out and interact with real-life German speakers! --Erik Macki ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy This
I'm interested in Learning German since I'm in German Club at school and thought I'd take a break from the german books and get software , huge mistake with this product. Its boring and is really is a waste of money . I begged my parents for this and they got it ...and I was happy . When I opened and installed it and ready to learn... The guy said it had three levels and he had good feedbacks from other people that bought his product and etc . This is not for beginners...

1-0 out of 5 stars Good for nothing unless you already speak German
I bought this for my girlfriend because her mother is German and she always wanted to learn. She found herself literally falling asleep at the computer !!! The speech recognition doesn't work worth a damn !! I could say most anything in English and it would rate me as good ! The whole thing doesn't seem to have any planning associated with it. You just muddle around trying to learn German. I sent it back to Transparent for a refund. Let's see if at least they can get that right. If you are a beginner, STAY AWAY FROM THIS !!! Try Rosetta Stone, it seems more for beginners.

2-0 out of 5 stars It's not that good
When I bought this software I was thrilled with the comments on this product that I decided to give it a try. However when I installed it, it was so boring that I lost interest in a matter of minutes. The vocabulary drills always take you to the same ten words, even though it says it teaches you 10000. The bonus grammar software included will never teach you any grammar, however I must recognize that it has some good dialogues if you want to practice your listening skills. If you want a more complete software I recommend Learn to Speak German.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty cool pronunciation practice
This isn't so much for beginners, but it's pretty fun praticesoftware and great for help with pronunciation. The videos are a neatfeature, too. I'd say you should have done at least two semesters of German in college or so before this would be something for you--but then it's one of the only options on the market for more-advanced German students since so much that's out there is for total beginners. ...

This program is entertaining and easy to use. The interface is quite intuitive. The lessons flow naturally and are actually pretty fun and sort of addicting. A good indonesian-english dictionary would serve as a useful compliment to this product. It's only weakness is that it contains little on conversation.

5-0 out of 5 stars I am not a Berlitz employee
I would like to respond to the reviewer who wrote that the "gushing" reviews are all written by Berlitz employees. I am not, nor have I ever been, an employee of Berlitz, nor any company affiliated with Berlitz in any way. My full name is in my review, anyone who wishes may contact Berlitz and confirm that I have never worked for them in any location. I did try quite a number of other Spanish language systems, and this is the one that worked. Period. For the $15.00 or so I paid for CD, plus an hour of work every day for several months on the CD, the payoff was fantastic, far better than any other system I used. I am happy that others have success with other systems, I am only reporting my success with this one.

1-0 out of 5 stars berlitz employees write these reviews
berlitz employees write most of the gushing reviews posted on this site. Beware that there are much less expensive products, that there is nothing revolutionary about these products, and that you will find less expensive variants elsewhere. Be cost conscious and know that you will not learn a language from a cd rom

5-0 out of 5 stars This way works to help people communicate in español
I found myself in a new work situation where I absolutely had to communicate in Spanish to my new employees, including everything from raises, hiring, firing, promotions, applications, and much more. Having virtually no success in previous Spanish courses, I bought this CD-ROM, and just stayed with it through all 50 lessons. Before I knew it, I was being told by my employees that my Spanish was excellent, a few said it was "perfect". The CD covers many basic settings, and is done in a fun, non-intimidating way. It helped me hear, speak, write and read Spanish.

All I can say is the Berlitz method works, I give it my highest recommendation, and hope that anyone else who needs to learn Spanish (or any other language) will enjoy the success I had with this CD. While it may be true that we don't say "diga" when we answer the phone, as others have commented about this CD, I would not trade that shortcoming for any other Spanish method, because nothing I used was nearly as successful as this one.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a grammar error
As a correction, I will briefly say that "diga" is the correct way to answer the telephone. In fact, "diga" is in the dictionary, but it is a conjugate of the word "decir," meaning to speak. Just like "does" may not appear in our dictionary because it comes from "do". Please do not hold this against the program, because they are correct. However, it may lack in explaining the pertinent information on why one word is used instead of another.

3-0 out of 5 stars that is not a grammar error
As a rebuttle to the prior review, I have not ordered this program, but I would like to make a correction. Using "diga" to answer the phone is very common in most spanish speaking countries. This may be confusing, but many words are conjugations of other words, and "diga" comes for "Decir" meaning "speak." The program is not wrong, but it may not be effective in explaining all pertinent information. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Nice toy, does not teach you Greek
This product is very different from e.g. "Learn to speak French". It does not teach you basic Greek. It will teach you, pleasantly, to say some words and phrases. That's it.
If you are pleased to be able to say "Good morning", "Thank you" and "May I have the bill, please" in the local lingo, go ahead and enjoy. If you want to understand any reply, you need more than this. If you just want to get around, a very, very thin printed parlor will serve you better and more reliably. ... Read more
