Okay for basics, but definitely should not be only means of learning a language July 19 2011
By Ellen - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I purchased this item to help me with my Swedish in preparation for studying at a Swedish university in the fall. Although the Rosetta Stone software is alright for learning basic vocabulary and how to formulate an extremely simple sentence (pretty sure this only prepared me for a conversation with a first grader), it should not be your only means of learning the language. Apart from only teaching simple vocabulary, I found Rosetta Stone had trouble recognizing when I would speak into the software. It would sometimes not recognize that I was speaking at all, and other times it would simply not recognize that I had finished speaking and sit for 15 seconds or more waiting for me to finish the sentence. This made it very difficult to feel like I was making any progression as I would have to spend 15 minutes trying to get past one sentence. Mind you, this is not due to mispronunciation, but due to the software being incapable of recognizing speaking. I used Rosetta Stone as a basic vocabulary builder, but had to supplement my learning by speaking to (and asking millions of questions) to my Swedish friend. If you are not lucky enough to have a native Swede to talk to for help, I'd suggest purchasing another product as this will not prepare you at all for a real Swedish conversation. I hear Pimsleur is good.

Beware! Can only be installed on one computer. March 3 2011
By DCist - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've been a Rosetta Stone user for years and have learned several languages with its assistance. With all previous versions, I have been able to install the software on both my home desktop computer and on the laptop computer I use when I travel (frequently) for business. But, to my shock, that is not the case with this version - version 4/TOTALe: it can only be installed on one computer. I only learned this after a lengthy chat with the company's tech support to try to figure out why installation failed on my desktop computer - the description Rosetta Stone provides on this Amazon.com page fails to mention this small detail. One of the key reasons Rosetta Stone's software has been effective for me in the past is that I have been able to use it while traveling, as well as at home. But no more, apparently. Rosetta Stone claims that it changed its policy with the release of this new version because the new version tracks one's progress online, and having the software installed on two computers would make this impossible. Huh? I can't begin to guess how many websites I've accessed from different computers - including Amazon.com - by simply entering a username and password. Rosetta Stone's new policy is ridiculously restrictive. I recommend finding an older version of the software, with a more reasonable installation policy - or simply boycotting Rosetta Stone and purchasing an alternate product.

Worst technical support ever Dec 13 2011
By Frustrated with RS - Published on Amazon.com
If you install Rosetta Stone (RS) on more than 2 computers, you have to call the company to get more seats for your activation ID. The first time my computer crashed, I called the company to get another seat (I had it installed on my husband's computer too in case was using my laptop - he has a desktop). They treated me like I had stolen the ID, and it took over an hour to reactivate the ID. We wouldn't have been able to get it back, except that my husband has a nearly photographic memory and remembered his old credit card number that he used to buy the program for me for Christmas. He had to tell the RS support where he bought it exactly, the exact date, and the exact credit card number. That's way too difficult for most people.

I am now unable to install my Swedish Level 3 CD. I have now been on the phone (and on hold) for 52 minutes. The first person I talked to couldn't help me, and transferred me to technical support, which is now transferring me to technical support #2!! I've never had such terrible customer support experiences with any other product.

useless $400 coaster set. Oct. 28 2011
By Laura Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I had the previous version & it was ok. In practice, I have to agree with the previous review. I was in Stockholm last summer. Either they couldn't understand me or would immediately speak to me in english (pronunciation portion obviously doesn't work.). I went back to refresh and the program wouldn't let me online because I hadn't been there for awhile. I tried to pay for more time. Showed I did but still wouldn't let me on. I thought I would reload get a fresh start & see what happened. Got an update & haven't been able to even open it since. I buy the actual updated version on cds. Fatal Error, download this over & over. Went to support, it was in the FAQ. Should have been first clue. Did everything they said & nothing changed. So now I have this really nice set of $400 coasters.

Rosetta Stone-Swedish Oct. 30 2012
By Allison - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It has been helpful so far as I learn Swedish. I am only able to work on it 2-4 times per week for an hour at a time and not always in a consecutive way. I am definitely building my knowledge and am able to communicate better with my husband and his family who are from Sweden. I like it and am excited to continue. The graphics, pictures, and repetition work best for me.
