Edition: Japanese
Someone clearly put a lot of time into creating the Rosetta Stone program. The production values are pretty good. But, the purpose of the program is to learn Japanese, and the amount of Japanese you can learn from all three programs is very limited. Better to spend the money on covering more material, and skip the bells and whistles.

In my estimation, all three programs are insufficient to equal even one full year of college Japanese. I'm not saying that the program is bad, just that it is limited in the amount of material covered. Perhaps my expectations were too high, but given the shockingly high price, I think I had a right to have those kinds of expectations. I would have returned it if I could, but I foolishly bought it on sale when it cannot be returned.

This product may have plenty of bells and whistles, but what it does not have are clear cut instructions as to what you are to do. A screen comes up with pretty pictures but nothing to explain what is expected from the user, are you to just look at the pretty pictures are you to repeat the strange noises made by the speaker, or are you to mouse click on the picture that represents what was said in a foreign language you do not as yet understand. It takes longer finding out what they want your response to be than the entire lesson. In my opinion it is a total waste of money.

Edition: Japanese
While I agree this is a sleek, well designed piece of software, it totally lacks substance. I don't understand the logic behind creating a program which has been designed to teach a language, but neglects to even briefly go over the basics of sentence structure before jumping into the coursework. I can see that they are approaching the concept of learning a language in the same way that a child learns: through trial and error. However, applying this method to adults does not work, it is simply too time-consuming and frustrating for most people. Would you try to teach someone chemistry by giving them a box of chemicals and telling them to mix them together until they can fill in a blank periodic table?

The other problem with Rosetta Stone is that it does not explicitly tell you anywhere (as far as I've seen) what the translation of the sentence is, leaving you to spend more time guessing at the answer than actually learning anything. This is not so bad for a language like Spanish, where there are a lot of similarities with English, but when trying to learn something like Japanese, it's a daunting nightmare.

I've tried Rosetta Stone Spanish as a supplement for expanding my vocabulary (after getting to an intermediate level from university) and found it excruciatingly dull and learned nothing after a week of using it. It's not quite a week yet for Japanese (starting at absolute zero knowledge), but it's crept to the edge of my desk -- one more nudge and it's the recycle bin!
