Rosetta Stone Korean Level 1-3 Set (Windows), Download Version 4 5 1 1
I first acquired the desire to learn Korean when one of my friends introduced me to KPOP and Korean dramas in middle school, and since we couldn't afford to have me take Korean language classes and knew of none in our area, my parents one day got me the first Level. I must say that Rosetta Stone has hit the hammer on the head in teaching the learner the beginning stages of the language by having them "acquire" it rather than memorize it; my German teacher in high school started teaching us German using this concept and it sunk in rather quickly. I think that teaching the learner their selected language through the very processes that everyone first learned to speak their native language is an ingenious idea. However, I am disappointed at how Rosetta Stone seems to stop at that point. When one gets into pre-school and kindergarten, they are taught how to identify and read the characters of the language that they speak and then start going into the explanation of sentence structure and grammar as the child progresses in school, going more in depth as they get older and more experienced and comfortable with the language. However, Rosetta Stone doesn't actually teach you how to read Korean characters and actually has you reading them wrong in the pronunciation sessions by having you repeat each syllable back to them, whether or not each sound you make in forming the words of the syllables that you are saying are actually in that word you are saying. For example, if you try to say "ibeoseoyo" - "eo" sounds like the "o" in "dog" - they'll have you say it like this: "ee-beo-seo-yo", when it's really written like this: "eeb-eos-eo-yo", which makes it VERY confusing trying to teach yourself how to read the language, which is why I had to do my own research to be able to read Korean while learning through Rosetta Stone. They also do not explain the sentence structure of the Korean language and it will later set you up to make simple mistakes without realizing it, especially when you try to combine two complete thoughts into one sentence. It leaves the learner guessing and hoping that they said everything in the right order. As many other people have mentioned, I do hope that Rosetta Stone will come up with at least a Level 4 version if not a Level 4 & a Level 5 version so that the learner will have a much more complete and in depth understanding of the Korean language and that it will teach them things that you learn in school like grammar, Korean idioms and common sayings, Korean customs, Korean taboos, and the knowledge to use "banmal" or informal language and when & when not to be informal. Rosetta Stone will not teach you everything you need to know about the language you've chosen, but it does give you a wide ranged of beginning knowledge that will be extremely helpful if you ever decide to take a Korean grammar & literature class, which I highly recommend. Or if you know someone from Korea who speaks good English and is willing to help you, take advantage of that opportunity because you will be getting invaluable information and it will be information that you don't have to spend money on.
