Ratings and Reviews
Immersion is the only way to really learn a language
If you rely on translating, I don’t think you can ever become fluent. Each language has words and phrases that simply cannot be translated. When you have a conversation in a foreign language and you have to translate the foreign words you hear into your native language and then translate your response from native back into foreign language, you will not only get tired and stressed out but your conversation will not be fluent and natural. What works for me are images. When learning the foreign word for flowers for example, I don’t translate into my native language but imagine a picture of flowers in my head. Then coming up with Blumen, fleures, flores, etc. in a foreign language conversation is much faster and requires much less brain power than translating. Those are just my 2 cents. This approach works best for me. I’m a foreign language major with 4 foreign languages. English is my 3rd language. Everyone is different and has their preferred way of learning but I encourage everyone to try the immersion approach for one or two weeks and see how it goes.
App works great. I only encountered one small glitch but that may have been a glitch on my device.
Great concept horrid execution
The teaching on this app, I love. It's a great idea. I wish I'd went month to month at this point though rather than pay for two years. It is the buggiest app I've ever used. In fact, it's so buggy the uncommon word "hate" comes to mind. I went all the way thru module three recently and got to the last lesson. I get a pop-up that says, skipping ahead? You didn't finish all the lessons. I go back and look and sure enough, the Review lesson I'd done said I'd not done it. This particular one I knew I'd done...8 times! You see, for the Review lessons, you can't retake and fix one card, it makes you retake the entire lesson! I wanted a 100% so I retook it until I did. Guess what... It apparently lost all progress. I ended up taking it two more times, finally getting everything right. When I finished, it said I missed one anyways. What!? I have another Review that I know I'll never get right because despite voice set to easy and having taken a year in college of German from a native German, it says I cannot pronounce one word. I gave up. In some lessons I can use the wrong word entirely when I'm trying to guess the dialogue and get a 100% but in the Review, which you must fully retake if you miss something, it won't get the single word right. In short, if you are a perfectionist or have limited time to waste on bugs, this is not the app for you. There are better ones for free that won't make you cuss in front of children or want to throw your phone.
Developer Response ,
Sorry to hear you have been having issues with our app. Great news - we have a fix in place to solve the issue you had when you completed it and it was still showing as one not complete. This will be released soon!
On the other item of the app not remembering your progress at all during the review path, we’d love to get more info from you so we can troubleshoot this for you. Please contact us and we’d love to help resolve this issue. Open Rosetta Stone > tap the Menu > go to Settings > tap on Feedback, to send us a message.
Love the immersion!
I found my way to this app after I had done some Duolingo.I am learning french and if anyone is learning french they also know how particular it can be. When I got to a certain point on Duolingo they made it difficult for me because all they want you to do is translate things into your own language. While I understand their point, it didn’t work for me and maybe Duolingo is good for a language that you just want to brush up on. Once I got Rosetta Stone though I made more progress and I continue to...I am also close to a native french speaker so that’s kind of an unfair advantage but with Rosetta Stone’s immersion technique you don’t see any of your first language in the lessons (other than things like pause and the names of the units and lessons of course) and that helps me stay focused and learn in the best way possible. I do plan on reading books in French after and finish a workbook (as I would recommend anyone do) because (at the moment) with my version of Rosetta Stone I don’t ever get to type out sentences as a mean of practicing grammar. Hopefully I will be able to come back and write a review in French :)
