Here's Our Review on Rosetta Stone Japanese Software
Those of you wishing you could learn Japanese and are concerned about the quality of pronunciation will be quite pleased with Rosetta Stone's stuff. We've used their software and it is slick. Note we didn't say cheap - $209 for level 1.
Make no mistake, between their interactive software that actually is fun to use and their voice print technology helps you speak like a Japanese by rating how close to a native Japanese speaker you are, this is a high end product for more serious students.
It also has a function where it actually tracks your progress and prompts you to review or re-study areas you struggle with. So in other words the product is interactive. Your progress (or lack of progress) causes the program to respond with further reviews etc. You'll be exposed to all areas, reading, writing and speaking. 180 day return policy if you don't like it. Make sure to read on because you might very well be taking them up on the return policy.
Rosetta Stone Japanese - What we like About it
The fact that is quite an engaging software package was a nice change from more boring study formats. The software is easy to use, pretty slick and engaging. It minimizes memorization. But then again, those who don't mind this probably won't give a hoot about such a feature. It does a fair job though of attempting to simulate the way that you learned your mother tongue. It does a bang-up job of visual presentation. If you are a visual type learner then you'll love this stuff. If not, your money is better spent elsewhere.
Rosetta Stone Japanese - What we don't like about it
The Bottom Line: Given the hefty price and the inability of delivering its primary goal of "total immersion". We say that your money is better spent elsewhere. You want total immersion? There is one way...the high road of high roads and it involves getting on a plane.
Rosetta Stone Japanese - What Others say:
"If you're a beginner who is interested in learning Japanese and willing to dedicate short blocks of time to it on a regular basis, I think you'll really enjoy the Rosetta Stone package."
"It is a little TOO much based on repetition of the same pictures and phrases; interactivity could be more advanced."
"I don't think there's a perfect single system to learning Japanese. but I am finding that with Rosetta Stone as my centerpiece I am learning Japanese much better and more quickly than I expected.""I recommend using this program in conjunction with the Genki textbooks and workbooks
and devoting at least 45 minutes a day to study, and within a month everything will fall into place. I wish I had found this sooner because I've only been using it for a couple of weeks and I've made tremendous progress in speaking and vocabulary."
