Why is Rosetta Stone the world's No. 1 language-learning software? Because it works.
Escape the endless tedium of translation, memorization, and grammar drills. Get the language you want, the skills you need, and the success you deserve by learning a new language naturally--the same way you learned your first language.
The complete immersion environment puts your native language-learning skills to work, eliminating your dependence on tedious translation and rote memorization.
In Rosetta Stone you learn the meaning of new language from clear, real-life images.
In this activity you learn a few basic nouns.
You advance using language you've learned and clues from new images. That's your intuition at work.
Now that you know these nouns, you can easily grasp the meaning of the new verb...
Throughout Rosetta Stone, you constantly interact with the program to confirm your intuition.
...and then check what you've learned.
From beginning to end you build systematically toward your language-learning goals, for the most effective and enjoyable instruction anywhere.
Pattern your speech after a native speaker. Our speech comparison feature shows you exactly how you're doing.
You learned your first language without translation.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The reason we wanted to return it is that the written portion of the program is in Korean characters and not Romanized. Therefore, it's very hard to understand the details of things being said. We turned to a different system and it's working much better!
First, it was not designed to teach someone Korean. Because of problems with word order, it will have an English speaker believe that over meant under and vice versa. It teaches numbers, then moves on to telling time. This would work fine if Korean did not have 2 number systems. It teaches one then uses the second for telling time, leaving the user completely lost.
It does not teach Hangeul. I am fine with it using hanguel, since it is the best way to read Korean. But without teaching the user to read first, it is like a sports car with no gasoline. Expensive and useless.
The Product needs to be updated. It looks like it was made in 1995, and the photos are hard to make out. It is hard to tell who is the boy and who is the girl in many. You just have to guess which one looks slightly more feminine or is wearing a little more pink.
If you are taking a formal class, or have already studied Korean very much, it might help. Since it doesn't teach reading, grammar, or rules, it leaves the user totally lost.
It's important to start with the guided exercises and then do the tests or other activities. That way you get better hints on what the answer is. You do that till you feel you've mastered something, and then move on. You are able to choose the order and time you spend on something and can hear a lot of Korean.
Much better than a tape series in my opinion.
This limitation was not listed anywhere that I found and was not apparent until after installation.
The learning process was exactly the same a the Web version, except there is no tracking of progress or test results in this version.
