I am planning on using Rosetta Stone for my new 9th grader for Spanish. We have used the old cds before and he worked well with them, but they won't work on any of our current computers, so I am looking at the current subscription options and trying to decide if the homeschool version is worth the extra cost over the regular version. Does anyone have any experience with either?

Thanks so much!

Haven't used the online subscription service (we have the old cd's too) but the homeschool version came with pdf's for written exercises which the regular version didn't have. I'm using it for myself not my kids, so I'm not doing the written work. But if I was going to give them a credit for it, I would want them to be doing some written output.

Here's my experience:
I bought RS homeschool edition.  Not only was it severely limited, but their customer service was horrid.  None of the homeschool things worked.  The software itself was buggy, and it was installed on a brand new computer.  They have licensing issues. DH and I are trained linguists and both of us hated the program.  It was one of the worst we have ever brought into the house and I won't do it again.

What is drawing you to purchasing a subscription over a different program altogether?  There are enough Spanish programs on the market that RS pales considerably next to them.
