Worst Purchase Ever The problems start with what may be the worst User's Guide that I have ever encountered. This is frustrating, but it would be even more frustrating if the product being introduced were worth pursuing. Instead, we get an approach that assumes that an adult learning a second language does it in the same way as a 2-year-old learning a first language. Does no one at Rosetta Stone ever look at the relevant language learning literature? The fact that your prices are so outrageous only adds to the insult. December 11, 2014
Okay Learning Tool But Not Great I already knew a tiny amount of Japanese before starting Rosetta Stone Japanese, so I could use this product without too much difficulty but for an absolute beginner Rosetta Stone might be a bit tough. They don't really explain anything in English. It's really just seeing a picture and hearing Japanese, I had to use a Japanese to English dictionary quite often. However Rosetta stone does do a good job of trying to hammer things in. It definitely helps in learning the language. However at the end of all three levels you won't be anywhere near fluent, not even close. But you have to be realistic in that regard. It takes a long time to learn a language and there really isn't one product that does the job but Rosetta Stone does help. However it does just focus on polite level of speech and not informal. It also doesn't force you to write Japanese which can be a bad thing. If you want to be fluent in Japanese you really need to learn hiragana, katakana and kanji, and you have to learn those by writing them. I wish it had more levels, there's certainly more vocabulary they can add. Anyway, I've enjoyed it and I think it is worth the money. December 11, 2014
Very Good teaching method I have been involved with the Japanese language since 1963. I had never taken any lessons, but my ability to construct sentences were never very good. I could generally understand basic daily conversation, but speaking was always very difficult. This system had in a few lessons helped me a lot in my speaking ability. I am also learning how to used my vocabulary much better. I am right now only on level two, but I feel that as I continue with this program, both vocabulary and speaking ability will improve a lot. My only complaint is that I wish their voice recognition worked better. It works ok, but my Dragon Naturally speaking voice recognition works much better. December 11, 2014
Program really needs work I don't like this program very much for Japanese. I can pick up on basic words, but none of the sentences. Plus, it was hard at times to know what the picture was talking about. Like on one of them, it showed a boy next to another boy, then the other three pictures were basically the same but had completely different sentences to go with it. I couldn't tell if the boy standing next to him was his brother, cousin, friend, or someone else. Another thing, they do not tell you the importance of the sentence markers (wa, ga, ka, mo) which are REALLY important to learning Japanese as they are used all the time. When I saw the sentence that meant "What are you doing?" it confused me. I wanted to know, what did Nani mean and what did the ka at the end mean. I only saw ka a few times and wondered how it fit in with the sentence. If you don't know, ka is the verbal question mark, but I never learned that though this program! Lastly, this program is teaching formal Japanese. In Japan, you will most likely hear casual Japanese over formal Japanese. If you learn formal first, then casual it's like working backwards. Over all, I would not recommend this to any of my friends. Resently, I have found a program that is AMAZING in teaching Japanese because it actually has a translation, uses funny little things to help you remember words, teaches you grammar, and so much more. There are other ways to learn a language, I suggest you seek them. December 9, 2011
