I like the immersion concept. Just look at the pictures and see the words/phases and try to recall them. I’m a visual learner, so this is great for me. If you are not a visual learner this may not be for you. I have images of pictures in my head now, with Spanish words/phrases to go with it. Which is much better for me than grammar drilling, etc.

I had a remedial understanding of the Spanish language. Rosetta Stone is teaching me basic Spanish quickly and easily just as it promises. If you commit about 30-60 minutes a day, I am sure it can work for anyone. I really like this program and look forward to completing all three levels.
It is really good, and although the old version was also quite good, this one is much more so. The lessons and the review management are particularly well designed. The language method is much improved and more realistic. The immersion method they’ve implemented is so good that I don’t use the notes I used to use, and also don’t refer to my Spanish dictionaries as often as I did with the old version.
If you’re consistent in it’s use, quiz yourself mentally during daily activities, and proceed at a comfortable pace (too slow & you lose momentum, too fast & you forget) you’ll be speaking Spanish in no time. I’ve learned far more in the past month with this product than I did taking a weekly conversational Spanish class at the local community college.
