I prefer RS to DuoLingo
I signed up for DuoLingo in 2016, but quit a year later after their switch to their current crown system. Recently, I picked it up again, but DuoLingo does not work for me anymore. If anything, it bores me and it’s more of a child’s game than a learning tool. It’s addictive for the sake of competing with others rather than engaging to learn. I always knew about Rosetta Stone, but never tried it because of the price. I wanted something harder than DuoLingo, so after reading reviews - good and bad - a trial, I took a steep plunge. I purchased their lifetime subscription while it was on sale for $200.
So far, I feel it’s been worth it. Rosetta Stone isn’t a game in my eyes. It isn’t cute nor is it addicting. To me, those are good things. I’m using it because I want to learn, not to keep a streak up, collect hearts and gems, or reach the top of the leaderboard. I sincerely find RS to be challenging, especially when it comes to the conversation exercises. I hate them - I hate speaking because I’m awkward and clumsy - but they work. Rosetta Stone taught me more in a week than DuoLingo taught me in the one year I used it. At level fourteen in DuoLingo, the program is just now trying to teach me numbers one through ten. That’s something to give to a kindergartner.
To each their own. My only gripe is the iOS app doesn’t sync as it should. I have to uninstall and reinstall it for it to sync if I redo a lesson. I sincerely hope that issue is fixed someday soon.
Rosetta Stone is tops!
I wanted to wait several months before writing a review. I have now been studying Hebrew for six months with Rosetta Stone. I bought the year-long program, and I am on track for a one-year completion. I think you get a lot out of it if you put a lot into it. I study every day. The program is amazing! I had tried another program that was teaching me to transliterate into English first. It was slow and I wasn’t learning much because my eyes always went to the English transliteration rather than the Hebrew letters. I also tried a sample lesson with another company that used only audio as the “best way” to learn a language. I realized I am a visual learner, so just listening to audio did not work for me. But now with Rosetta Stone, I am reading the words in the Hebrew alphabet and understanding what I am reading. I awake in the middle of the night with Hebrew words and phrases running through my mind. The pictures are enjoyable, and help me to understand words and phrases. My vocabulary is amazing! I think my pronunciation is getting better and better as well. It is such a natural and fun way of learning. Right now, I am studying the past tense, and I thought it would be difficult, but I am understanding it just fine. When I get through with Hebrew, I may learn another language through Rosetta Stone just for fun!
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.
