  1. I am married to a Dutch national, and we currently live in America. Our son (now 6) used to be pretty fluent in Dutch. He went to Dutch preschool and was at age-level for both English and Dutch. But then we moved back to America, and my husband didn't keep up speaking Dutch with him. We just speak English around the house, and when I reminded my husband to speak Dutch to son he just did simple things, like "nee!" and "Ik hou van jou" ("no" and "I love you"). Result : Son refuses to speak Dutch, though I think he still understands a little. I realized I need to lead by example, so I got the basic Pimsleur course from the library, and found that if I play it in the car while son is in he back seat he'll pick up some phrases. But a whole half hour of auditory learning is too tough for him to sit down and do by itself. So I'm looking into a course that we can use which will appeal to him and teach him Dutch in a structured way. Since Dutch, and Dutch for kids, is pretty non-popular, it looks like my choices are Dino Lingo, Rosetta, and Tell Me More. Dino Lingo looks like the most simple, but maybe too simple? Rosetta Stone: I've read around the internet that some people have success using this for young children. Since he already has Dutch in his head (somewhere, way deep down), would this be a good choice? Tell Me More I know almost nothing about. It looks like the homeschool package is for highschoolers, so would this be way over his head? Any other possible resources?
  2. Does anyone know what the difference is between the Total e version 4 of Rosetta Stone and the homeschool version 3? I ordered the homeschool version but they sent me the Total e version 4. I can exchange it but I am wondering if the only difference is the part about being able to track the student. If that is the only thing then I don't need to exchange. I can't seem to figure this out from Rosetta Stone website. I don't want to be missing some of the language learning if they don't give you as many steps to complete the program in the total version 4. Thanks for any help you can give, Suzq
  3. My daughter is in 5th grade this year and we are looking to start Spanish with her. Has anyone tried Duolingo?? If so, has there been success with actually speaking Spanish and not just learning vocabulary words? Is Rosetta Stone the better option as far as long term success with learning a foreign language??? The thing is this: in the next few days, my husband and I were going to purchase Rosetta Stone for learning Spanish (big $$$ investment!). I just came across Duolingo today, and of course it is FREE. . . big difference, right?!? But is it the better choice??
  4. I've had DuoLingo on my radar for a while, mostly because I think it is a really unique and worthwhile idea. I saw this article today about it and was even more impressed. In summary, they found that students learn as much in 34 hours as a student in a first semester Spanish class at college. It took Rosetta Stone users 55-60 hours to learn the same amount. I think this amazing, especially since it is free! I was just wondering if any of you are using it in your homeschool or for yourself and if you like it.
  5. My son is using RS Japanese and on some of the lessons he is getting an "x" in the box telling how well he did on each lesson. Should I have him re-do the lessons (these are in the first few lessons)? Advice from the Hive appreciated! Yael (in Tokyo)
  6. Since they say younger children can pick up a foreign language easier, I want to start my children now. I just feel at a loss at what to do...I am paying $20 for a 30 minute once a week session with a tutor, but I don't feel like it is fruitful (maybe I am impatient). I also read to them in Spanish (the language we chose). My husband and I only have a HS understanding of spanish (aka not great). How do you teach your child a foreign language? Are we doing what we are supposed to to help them learn? Any recommendations? Also, at what age would your recommend Rosetta stone?
  7. Hi, everyone: I am looking for a Spanish program to start with my first grade and pre-K boys next year. This past year, I taught them just the basics based on my own years of Spanish training, so they know the alphabet, colors, and some common words. But this year I want something more formal. Should I invest in Rosetta Stone, or go with La Clase Divertida? Any advice from those who have used these programs with young kids?
  8. My son is in 8th grade this year and this will be our first year homeschooling (besides Kindergarten). He has taken 2 yrs. of haphazardly implemented Spanish in private school so he knows a lot of basics but not so much how to put it together into conversation. I'm looking for a mostly independent Spanish program for the upcoming year. He is a strong auditory learner so, ideally it would be primarily DVD, computer or CD based. However, I also want some grammar and writing at some point as well. We had considered Rosetta Stone, however, because he has a slight stuttering problem I am concerned that the voice recognition portion will be an issue. I have an older version of Power-Glide but honestly, it looks rather cluttery and confusing. Does anyone have any feedback on the Rosetta Stone voice recognition or another program that may fit my needs a little better? Thanks!!!!
  9. Thinking of this for dd12. I've read it doesn't have enough grammar, but I can't find any other program that looks wonderful, so I thought we'd try RS. We do have a local family we're close with who are native French speakers that she could go hang out with to practice. I guess I'm worried because she did NOT do well with whole to parts Latin. But maybe I should just trust the RS to get her up and speaking and fill in grammar gaps later. Has your child successfully learned a language with RS? Do you think it depends on the child and how they learn-because I've read that some people just not do well w/ RS at all. I'm also considering Tell Me More, but read that it's boring. Also going to check if our library might have Mango Languages. I read that both of these are similar to RS but have better grammar. We basically want something independent to get her speaking French! It is not for academics or high school credit or anything-she just wants to learn it and is very motivated to do so. Thanks! xpost
  10. We have two sets of Rosetta, one is the homeschool version and only has levels 1-3 of German...the other is a version bought last year (not homeschool) but has 5 levels.. I have read that ONE level of the language is equivalent to one high school credit. We have the kids do 4 'squares' a day...Yes, I've done the silly math and with the five year program there are about 1300 'squares'...doing 16 squares a week (we just do it 4 days a week)..they will finish in just shy of 3 years. So, in my thinking..the five levels would be equivalent to 3 High school credits of a language not 5. We do plan to supplement with a grammar book once they've finished level 3. Our state only requires 2 years of a foreign language, but I realize many colleges require 3 years...so I want to make sure they have their 3 hours...we have actually completed 5+ years of Latin (Minimus, Secundus, 4 books of Cambridge Latin) but they were all completed before grade 8...so don't think we can count those. Plus, I want them to know a spoken language... So, for those of you who have used Rosetta Stone programs that use 5 levels, are you counting that as 3 credits of high school languages? And for the homeschool program that only has 3 levels...do you count that as 1, 1.5 or 2 credits? One child wants to stick with German (3 levels) and the other two are continuing with Italian....so I'm trying to figure out how to give her the extra credits needed..probably with a more formal approach? Thanks!
  11. My ds is almost finished with Rosetta Stone German level 5. It has taken him almost 2 years to get through all 5 levels - I realize this is pretty fast, but he has really retained it. I know this b/c he does well on all the review sections, and, he because he does seem to be able to translate basic phrases from English to German on the fly. (Of course, I don't know German so I can't judge his accuracy, but, he SEEMS comfortable with basic translations). DS is going to take the SAT II Biology test in June, so for fun I decided to give him the sample questions from the SAT II German test. He got 2 of the 13 correct and could not begin to translate a couple of the passages. (he would have done better at random guessing). I was really disappointed. I know we have discussed on this board many times that RS needs a supplement and isn't a full high school curriculum. But - some say that each level of RS is a year of hs? NO, it is not. The College Board website says a student should have at least 2 years of high school German before attempting the SAT II test - the 5 levels of Rosetta Stone don't even begin to cover those 2 years. We are counting his level 3-5 Rosetta Stone work this year as German 1 which I thought wasn't generous enough when we planned the year - but now I think it is. :( Edited to add that I didn't think he would be prepared enough to do WELL on the SAT II test because of the RS weakness in grammar. But I sure thought he would be better prepared than 2 out of 13.
  12. We are using Rosetta Stone, version 3. Currently we are only on Level 1. I believe dd needs 3 years of a foreign language in High School. So, how for into Rosetta stone is this? Also, we will be adding in weekly conversations with a native speaker and hope to take the SAT II. About how many levels in Rosetta Stone should we target to be prepped for the SAT II exams? TIA!
  13. Can anyone give me a comparison of these two? I have read that TMM goes more in depth, but it may be more difficult than RS for younger users. How young is too young to use TMM? What are the pros/cons of each? Would you start a child off with RS, then move into TMM? How do the "levels" compare? How long is it supposed to take to complete one level in each program? Oh, and most importantly, what sort of hardware comes in the box? ;) I thought I saw that RS has a headset/mic included. Am I correct? Does TMM have one? I'd just like to know what to buy ahead of time, since I don't own a microphone already. I'm looking at getting one of these for my dd to start learning Spanish when she starts 5th grade. I'd also like to be able to learn enough Spanish myself to be comfortable carrying on a conversation with native speakers. I took 2 years of high school Spanish, but the best I can do in conversation is to pick out a word or two in every sentence and say very simple phrases with a bad accent.
  14. I was just wondering if I'd be able to share my copy of Rosetta Stone with my friend. Would he be able to use it without a hitch?
  15. After reading the thread about foreign language requirements for college, I'm now concerned. What's wrong with Rosetta Stone? I know it doesn't teach everything, but what it does teach does it do a reasonable job? For my oldest, non-language kid, I plan on using Rosetta Stone as something to essentially fulfill a requirement - he'll never be a foreign language buff - all math geek. My daughter who is seven is wanting to learn Spanish and I was thinking of starting her on Rosetta Stone. This seems like a good place to start since I know no Spanish. Will it mess her up later in life if we do some Rosetta Stone? I'm not starting Latin with her until she can read English which is going slowly since she is dyslexic. What are the strengths and weaknesses of Rosetta Stone? Can it be high school languge credit for a minimum?
  16. Can someone tell me what comprises a typical semester's worth of study? In other words, how many levels would be the equivalent of Spanish 1 and Spanish 2? Thanks in advance!
  17. In the threads about buying older versions or used copies of Rosetta Stone, I'd mentioned that older versions wouldn't run on Vista. I noticed on their website that Version 2 does run on Windows 7. I know that I was thrilled because I have several sets of Version 2 that have been languishing unused since we had to upgrade computers. The savings on RS might be just the justification I need to go ahead and buy a new desktop. Anyway, I thought this might be of interest to others who had older RS stashed away still.
  18.

  21. Is the educational CD that comes with the homeschool version of Rosetta Stone usable with multiple languages or do you need to purchase the homeschool version for each language? We have the Spanish homeschool version and I'm looking into buying German so I'm wondering if I can save money by buying the non homeschool version and using the CD from the Spanish for the parent administrative tools or are the tools integrated right on the language CDs? I'm away from home & haven't used the Spanish program for awhile, so I don't remember how they're set up.
  22. I heard Rosetta Stone was like $600 and the correspondence program I will be doing next year and the language class comes with Rosetta Stone so I am not really worried about the price. Anyways, I have heard some bad things about Rosetta Stone but I have also heard some good. Any personal experience you would like to share? BTW, I will be taking Italian III, if that makes a difference. Thanks :bigear:
  23. for your language program? My husband gets it free, is it good enough for h.s. language?
  24. I'm just not 100% on board. Dh and I really want to learn Spanish - it would be fine for us. It would be great for the kids, too, exposure-wise. I can't help but feel, as a course, there are holes in it. I understand the purpose is fluency with conversation in mind - which is what most programs leave out - but I want them to be able to understand, read and write the language. Hrmph. I really want it for myself more:) What else is out there for Spanish? Do you think it makes a difference if the kids play around w/RS and then, eventually, move on to a more classical approach to the language? Exposure would be good, no? FYI, we're doing Latin now w/plans for Greek in a year. DS wants to learn Japanese for fun - uh, yeah. I want him to learn Chinese:tongue_smilie: Where do ya'll get info on foreign language programs? I'm revisiting old threads, which have been helpful, but I'm flailing here!
  25. What is the cheapest you have been able to purchase the Rosetta Stone program for? either complete levels or partial levels package... with coupon/group buy? new/used...can you buy it used??
