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

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.

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

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

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. You need to have substantial knowledge of French to be able to catch on to the process; luckily there is an English translation to everything so that you can figure it out.

Amazon.com Review

It is a credit to Fairfield Language Technologies that its JapaneseExplorer is one of the best examples of language-learning software--period. Ifyou are used to the old-fashioned but lamentably persistent grammar-translationmethod of learning languages, Japanese Explorer may surprise you because itinvolves no overt instruction in grammar or lists of vocabulary with Englishtranslations. Instead, it relies on very clever contextualization of Japanesewords and structures with photographs so that you never realize you're learninggrammar. We literally found ourselves speaking and understanding quite a bit ofbasic Japanese in about an hour.

Each graduated lesson works like this: First, you learn a new word by seeing apicture of, say, a man. You then read the Japanese word for "man" (at differentpoints, both in Roman letters and in Japanese script) and hear it spoken. Afterlearning a whole set of words this way, you move into self-quizzing mode, whereyou see just a picture of a man and you have to choose the right word, eitherfrom spoken or written cues. This emphasis on listening comprehension isfantastic and is one of the components that sets the software apart, but thereare also reading and writing exercises.

So how do they cover grammar? Japanese has a complicated system ofcounters attached to numbers. Eventually, for instance, you'll seehitotsu under a picture of one man and futatsu under a picture oftwo men. Later you'll see hippiki under one fish and nihiki undertwo fish. If you are a grammar guru, you might be able to figure out that humansare counted with hitotsu-futatsu, and small animals are counted withhippiki-nihiki. However, the beauty is you don't have to be a grammarguru at all because the software doesn't expect you to state rules like that; itexpects you only to associate a picture of two fish with nihiki insteadof futatsu. Eventually, you get into longer phrases that cover verbs,adjectives, and prepositional phrases. It's amazingly effortless, especially sofor children as young as 6.

Caveats: The CD-ROM includes both Mac OS and Windows versions. Your installationwill include the first-level lessons of a couple dozen other languages for free,too, so you have to know that the Japanese word for "Japanese" is Nihongoin order to select it from the list. Also, remember that software is noreplacement for Japanese-speaking people, so take what you learn and use it inthe world! --Erik Macki ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Visual Vocabulary
I picked up this product after hearing great things about Rosetta Stone's software. Apparently they meant Rosetta Stone Japanese Personal Edition. (...)
What to expect with this software is pictures, no explanations. This is fine and dandy if you have someone to clarify with. For example understanding that a dog is pronounce inu is one thing, but formulating the sentence of "Who's dog is that?" is another. That entire sentence is an idea, which is very difficult to get into a picture.
The lesson plans are not made like any class I have ever had. They seem to be a random collection of words with now focus on anything specific. Some related words are together, like car and plane, but that's as close as you get. One section seemed to revolve around "families" but it's hard to say with the cluster organization.
The only good thing about this software is that it supports Romania, kana and Kanji. The Romania support is there for people who don't really want to learn Japanese; they just want to speak it. The kana and kanji support is intended to fully saturate you in the language. This way you can learn pronunciation spelling though katakana/hiragana. Then once you know the pronunciation you can identify that sound with the Kanji for that object/thing/idea.
All in all this software is for vocabulary only, and I think the developers are fully aware of it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Starter!
I found this to be a great first step in the learning process. This Program encourages you to think.....
Think for yourself with Rosettat stone...but this is for beginners!

1-0 out of 5 stars ...err... that's not quite right
This may be a very good product, and (as a professional language teacher) I like what the editorial review has to say about their methodology... HOWEVER, as a speaker of Japanese (I read these reviews while looking for some more advanced stuff), I was a little bothered by the fact that the first example in the editorial review was... well... bad...
Japanese DOES use a system of counters... but you do not generally say "hitotsu... futatsu" for "one person... two people", you say "hitori... futari..." ("ippiki... nihiki..." for small animals is correct, and you can use it for children for a laugh)
It's not a major gaff... and for a beginner, it's great just to make youself understood, but it would be kind of like a non-native English speaker pointing at some one and saying "It is my English teacher".
The software may be great, but I'd be a little bit wary of buying this, since what the editorial reviewer seems most confident and happy with is... err... wrong...
But that may be an error on the part of the reviewer too... It's very easy to overgenalize applications of rules and whatnot... I've otherwise heard good things about the Rosetta Stone stuff.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent approach--unlike typical college class
I found this software extremely effective. Granted, it is a very different approach unlike the typical college foreign-language class. If like me you learned foreign languages previously by memorizing charts of verb declensions and things, this software will surprise you--and if you in fact do enjoy the details of grammar, this may not be a product for you. However, if you give this software a chance, it's very effective. You kind of have to suspend belief that it will work, but if you conscienciously use the software through the first 10 lessons, you'll be surprised at what all you can impress your Japanese colleagues or friends with. I was! I very much recommend it. It's not at all conventional, but it totally worked for me.

1-0 out of 5 stars dissapointed after reading other reviews
After reading the other reviews, I was excited about using this program. However, I am quite dissapointed. Perhaps it may be a good program for kids. However, for this adult learner, I found it quite frustrating. It is both too difficult and too easy at the same time, oddly enough. There isn't enough "meat" to hook one into learning. . .nothing is explained; it's all based on a concept of "natural" learning which may be fine if one wants to know how to say simple words in a new language. If you already know Japanese and need help recognizing speech, it may be handy. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Very exciting, if you want to learn to tell the time.
Well, there's scarcely 10 verbs, many international words in it, like Cola, burgher, a.s.o. .
It doesn't teach anything about verbs, clauses, mutations, prepositions, and all that silly stuff that make you really able to carry on a conversation and to say what you mean.
However, if you want to spend a little time instead of dozing, and don't pretend to learn a language, there's nothing better- save, perhaps, crossword puzzles.
If you know a bit of Gaelic, the only difficuilt game is telling the time, and it's the one that teaches you some phrases you can use ( unless you have bad luck and decide to say I was stolen my passport in Scottish Gaelic- better you don't, anyway you can speak English with cops ).
I admit I said something slightly different in Amazon.co.uk.
As a matter of fact, the more I study Scottish Gaelic, the less I appreciate that game.
If you want to learn Scottish gaelic, try something else- like Colloquial Scottish, by Kathleen Spadaro et al. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars it's ok
This product really doesn't have that many words in it. The games are kind of fun, but it doesn't actually teach you the language......just a few words. Mostly it's just matching the picture they associate the word with, with the word. If you want to learn a few words its useful, but for learning the language, it's bad.

This beginners language really delivers. Never thought learning a foreign language could be so fun. Wish to buy the Advanced Romanian when it comes out. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars For The Beginner
This is a 2 CD set.

The first CD deals with beginning words and phrases, by playing simple games, such as telling time, colors, articles of clothing and asking questions such as where is the bathroom, how much is this and where are my suitcases. It teaches you certain foods like eggs, fruits, fast foods and eating utensils (including chopsticks!).

This first disc is easy going but a great companion to this program is the book "Beginners Russian Script" a Teach Yourself Product sold here at Amazon.com that helps you to define how the letters should sound. The first disc went much easier after I started reading this book.

The second CD jumps right into it with game playing on a higher level. Which if you haven't mastered the simple basics, you'll be lost.

Before I started this program I knew absolutely no Russian words and now I can speak the very basics. It's a great way to start learning Russian.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not Bad for the Price
This is a two cd rom set. The first one gently takes you through some beginning exercises that are fun and teach you some VERY VERY limited vocabulary that might be useful if, say, you're on a guided tour of Russia with some one else to handle the language for you, and you just want to be able to say a couple of very basic things. (Especially number practice is very well done)

So far, so good. But then when you switch to the 2nd CDrom.. all of a sudden EVERYTHING is in Russian including the game instructions, verbal and written cues plus you're required to do some comparatively sophisticated manipulation of language in the games themselves--skills that the first CDrom did nothing to teach! It's sort of like being moved from first week, Level 1 Russian straight to a 2nd year college class. This produces a lot of frustration. To be effective there should be 4 more carefully stepped CDroms inserted between the 2.

2-0 out of 5 stars Worth the price, but that's not saying much...
I bought this thinking hey, it's ten bucks, what have I got to lose? Well, the answer to that question is ten bucks. If you're broke and want to learn Russian, save your money for food and get a library card. Pass on this.

I'd only give it one star, but I'll give it two because it's so cheap and you could learn something from this if you put forth serious effort. But you'd be better off buying the Penguin Russian course instead for almost the same price.

4-0 out of 5 stars useful tool in your language arsenal
First, to address some practical issues from other reviews:

1) I have XP. This CD works on XP.
2) This company does not make a more advanced program in Russian as they do in other languages. As far as I can tell, this 2 CD set is the full extent of their offerings in Russian.

I found this program very useful in learning some important basic vocabulary and getting more comfortable hearing and interacting with spoken Russian. The first CD is set up as a series of lessons and games on 8 different topics -- basic words (hello, goodbye, excuse me, etc.), foods, numbers, time of day, basic phrases, body parts, countries, and objects you might buy shopping like clothes.

In the lesson, a picture is shown, for example a plane. The word for plane is shown in English and in Russian (in cyrillic) and a Russian speaker says the word. There are two speakers on the CD, with noticeably different accents. It is interesting to compare the two accents and sort of triangulate the standard pronunciation. It also helps when you can't understand one of them, listening to the other one usually clarifies. SO, you see the meaning of the word, you see the word in English, you see the word in Russian, and you listen to a native speaker say the word. This is GREAT! I can't tell you how much of this I retained from all this great linguistic input!

So then there is a game to go along with each lesson, which is basically memory. They say a word in Russian and you have to click on the right picture. Simple. There are four different games you can play of varying difficulty levels. And it's really more of a test than a game, but hey when i graduated from college i got an engraved plaque saying i never had to take another test in my life. Didn't you? Anyways... This first CD was really helpful. I really have retained about all of the words on the CD, which is pretty amazing to me. There is also a speech/pronunciation section, but I didn't use it.

The second CD is a little different. It's more of the "immersion" that the title claims. They start spouting sentences full of words you probably don't know, and you're supposed to pick out like which picture they're talking about based on the fact that you heard the word "red" and "shirt" in there somewhere. But it's a little baffling. I'm going to hold off on doing the second CD until I go through some of my other books a bit more. But it's essentially set up the same -- lessons and then "games" to test and reinforce what you learned.

IN SUMMARY, very valuable vocabulary building. The setup of the lessons lends itself to a high level of retention, and the native Russian speakers are great for self-taught book people to hear. There are no grammar lessons, there are no writing exercises, there is no conversation on your part, there is no instruction in cyrillic, the list of vocabulary could have been a bit more extensive, and you don't even necessarily learn how to spell the words you learn. Therefore, it is only ONE weapon among many you should have if you really intend to beat the Russian language into submission. (just kidding) But it is very good at what it undertakes.

And need I repeat that for the price, you can't beat it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Starter for willing students.
This is a very good program for people who are just starting to learn the Russian language. This program gives students a few basic words and phrases that will help a student get introduced to the language. It is worth the money in my opinion however the program is geared toward a younger age group and does not go very deep into the Russian language. Overall, this program would be a good way to start. ... 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! ...
