I purchased this back in January of this year to prepare for my up-coming trip to Israel in June. I did have a very small vocabulary already of some Hebrew words and phrases before I bought this. In all I would say I knew about 100 words, and short phrases such as asking someone how they are, and I did learn how to tell someone that I did not speak Hebrew and ask if they spoke English. Very basic, but still maybe more than a lot of people getting this program.
So here is what I do not like about it. I understand the importance of immersion, and there is not a speck of English in these lessons, and that is the problem, because no English also means no written English as well. When pictures are put up you will hear the Hebrew word for it, and it will also be spelled using the Hebrew Alphabet, which of course means nothing to me, or to you if you don't know Hebrew, you obviously don't know the Alphabet. It would be nice if they had a phonetic spelling of the words in English (like the Hebrew-English phrase books that I own). I find this to be a big help, being able to read the word helps me to remember and associate the picture to the word, and also helps with pronouncing it.
To be honest, I have gotten more useful Hebrew out of the Pimsleur series of introductory Hebrew. With that I can already speak complete sentences and have small conversations, and order in restaurants etc, and those I can listen to in the car, or at the gym and they cost much less. As you can see between Rosetta, Pimsleur, and my phrase books, I have taken learning Hebrew pretty seriously, and have invested a good amount on it. I won't say that I have not gotten anything out of Rosetta Stone, but it is not as magical as the adds that you may have seen make it out to be, and again, I think this may pertain to languages where the alphabet and the characters are so different from English.
The last criticism that I have is the included audio files that you get with it that you can download to iTunes. I was really excited about that until I played them. All they have is someone saying the Hebrew words from the lessons on them. Not even the English word first, then the Hebrew word so that you know what it is. It is like listening to a Hebrew movie or TV show with your eyes closed. You have no idea what the word means if you don't already know it. And if you have heard the word before but are not 100% sure on what it is, there is nothing to remind you, either you know it, or you don't, and that is confusing and frustrating. I don't know how anyone could find that useful. After about 15 minutes of listening and realizing this I didn't even bother listening to another, and went right back to my Pimsleur cd's.
Everyone learns differently, so what is not helpful for me, may be fine for you, but if you think this type of immersion learning is right for you, then go for it, because if you can learn that way, then I think you'd be rocking Hebrew in no time.
But once it was setup and I was rolling with the program...WOW. This is awesome. And it's addictive, which is what you need when you have to immerse yourself in something. With language, you won't get it unless you are just doing it all of the time. And with this program, well, it's been 2 hours and I am reluctantly going to bed now because I have to get up in 6 hours.
Also, for the person who complained about the Hebrew and it not having things spelled out so we can sound them out... Ok, maybe I am just good at this, but I am picking up how to read in Hebrew after 2 hours. I mean, you start to notice patterns in letters and sounds. Just pay attention to the Hebrew spellings when you hear the sounds. Plus, the program DOES teach you to read after a while.
Overall, this program is wonderful and I am really excited! I believe if I stick with this, I WILL learn Hebrew.
The program is good, it is a fun way to experience Hebrew.
