3.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced, but not useless July 6 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
After completing the first CD, I have to say I'm a little disappointed. If 1 CD is meant to roughly equal a semester, then it probably falls a little short, and is priced about the same. In sheer vocabulary, it's definitely good, but the phrases it teaches are a little nonsensical - why must I know how to say a table is made of metal, before I learn how I learn how to say "I don't understand," or "what?" (neither phrase taught on this CD). Good at what it does, but it's more of a supplement than anything else.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rosetta Stone Korean Level 1 May 6 2012
By Oneota - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this product or an earlier version of it some time ago. It was sold with a guarantee, but when I wrote to get my money back, I never got an answer.

Why did I want my money back? Well, I was not learning Korean with it despite hundreds of hours with it [I only stuck with it because I had spent so much money and knew of no available alternative at that time]. The pictures were ambiguous and in a few classes unclear [I am not used to seeing a horse's head up so close that I can't recognize it. There is a picture showing a leg and a foot -- which one is meant? What is being said with the guy falling off in the rodeo or the guy on the skateboard?]. It took me a long time to figure out the prepositions of place without any explanation.

The program also doesn't allow for the fact that there are not one-to-one mappings from "observation" to a target language for all prepositions of place [think of the diverse uses of the English preposition of place "on"]. In Korean, the words for red and blue have a contrasting initial consonant, that I cannot hear in the program, but the second consonant, though written the same, sounds distinctly different to me. Maybe these are allophones, maybe not: But RS is no help here.

I worked HARD on this program. It was one of the most frustrating experiences in my life. In fact, I got to the point where I knew all the answers but still had no idea what I was saying in 10~20% of them. The review system seemed faulty: I would be tested again and again on words and phrases I already knew and got correct -- and not get out of the loop. This is NOT how I learned my first language. [Besides that, as an adult, I don't expect, and research does not indicate, that I will learn L1 and L2.] Here are two places where some guidance would have been helpful:
1] Korean has two systems for counting, pure Korean and Sino-Korean. There are specific applications for each, e.g., for how much something costs versus how things are being bought. RS teaches one set of numbers, but then times are taught, with-out any explanation that the numbers just learned are simply a different system than what applies to the hours of the day. 2] Korean only uses plural markers and subjects when they are not clear from the context. But RS seems to be ignorant of this, very early on make a big to-do [as I would if I were teaching English, German or Spanish, for example] of the difference between 'banana' and 'bananas.' This certainly did not help me when I got to Korea and tried to buy things!

The speakers speak rapidly. This is a natural speed for Seoul natives. But some allowance should be made for 1] learners and 2] the reality that people in some parts of Korea speak much more slowly.

Even more of the content is questionable: A Korean friend said that the sentences were unrealistic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of time and money May 28 2011
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
This program is a waste of time and money. After paying for this overpriced software package, a few months later they hit you with more charges to maintain your account. The program does nothing more than show you pictures and then says the words in Korean. They never bother to teach anything or give you a way to learn what they are saying except by the picture. Most of the time the picture is confusing and doesn't help explain what your supposed to be learning. I regret making this purchase, wish I could get a refund.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Program! Feb. 1 2012
By Lindsey M - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I chose to buy this product since I will be studying abroad in South Korea. I'm half way through the course, but I can already say that I feel a lot more confident now than I was before. This program is different in that at first, you honestly have no idea what you are doing, but as the course progresses, you repeat, and therefore learn, not just memorize, the language! You will only find this beneficial if you are dedicated about learning and take it as a new language instead of trying to make sense of syntax, diction, etc. i also transferred my program from one mac to another and it runs smoothly. CALL CUSTOMER SUPPORT BEFORE YOU DO THIS!

**Couldn't be happier!

2.0 out of 5 stars Buy a Picture Dictionary instead March 7 2014
By Nexus Dude - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this program to help prepare myself to teach English in South Korea. As a linguist and ESL teacher, I know the limitations of such programs, compared to taking a course or making friends with a speaker of the other language.

The best use of Rosetta Stone is for visual learners to pick up basic vocabulary. Even if there were a RS 2 or 3 for Korean, which there isn't, it still wouldn't help you much beyond that. A picture dictionary provides the same benefit, though. It would have far more words than RS does, for $90 cheaper, and it'd be easier to carry around. Plus you could add related words in the margins! Get one with a CD, so you can mimic the pronunciation.

The language quality for Rosetta Stone products is hit or miss. For languages such as Spanish or French, the language is perfect. For Korean or Hindi, though, RS products stink. They're full of language errors! Language learners won't know that they're learning bad Arabic or Korean, until they finally make a friend from that culture. By that time, they don't need RS anymore. You'd think their quality control would be much better.

There's also an issue with poor service. Years ago, I misplaced my disk 1. This was years ago. RS wants to charge me an exorbitant amount to replace that disk, even though I still have disk 2, so obviously I'm not trying to scam them. So I deducted a star for poor service.

My advice for LL is:
1. Get a picture dictionary with a CD.
2. Stay motivated! Study regularly! Use what you know! Get lots of rest!
3. Take good language courses with real instructors who care about you.
4. Find ways to make friends with people who speak that language. You might do a language exchange, and teach each other your mother tongues!

Blessings.
