Overall Satisfaction with Rosetta Stone Language Learning Software

Our company is located in QC, which is French and English bilingual. I never learned French before, and also English is not my first language. I thought it would be very hard to learn French by English, but it turns out not. I've been enjoying Rosetta Stone on my phone for more than one year after previously using another app. I've found Rosetta Stone to be head and shoulders above the other apps, I do like they provide animes and cartoons to show you how it works in real life.
  • It provides real pictures, cartoons and illstrations to creat an actual scene.
  • It has different levels of lessions, good for we beginners.
  • Analogies help me understand the word better!
  • Please adjust the UI, the "play" button really needs to be better.
  • Sometimes the exercise freezes, i have to quit and restart again, i'm using iOS15.1
  • Most of the time, the mic is good, but sometimes it can't specify what i'm saying.
  • For me, it helps me learn how to use French in real life.
  • Rosetta Stone contains lots of analogies which helps me understand!
  • It also forces me to learn by paying the fee.
  • Positive: It helps me have a better communication with colleagues.
  • Positive: It helps me understand our projects better.
  • Positive: It will potentially add more possibilities to the promotion in the future.
I have been using Duolingo for a few years, I have to admit it is a good app too! But I eventually choose Rosetta Stone. Because Duolingo is only word and grammar focused, while Rosetta Stone is immersion learning for all skills (vocabulary, grammar, and listening). On my end, I think Duolingo is more for the amateur, and Rosetta Stone is for professional lessons.

To be honest, the software is a bit expensive, especially compared with some free apps. But I think it's worth it. On my end, I need to live and work in a bilingual city, I would need to learn how to use French in real life, and Rosetta Stone provides real conversation, animation, cartoon or illustations to show us how to actually use this language, I really appreciate it! We all know French has a lof of liaison, if I only learnt the grammer from the book, I could barely understand what they are talking about, but Rosetta Stone is good, the speed and liaison matches what people speak in real life, I could understand 40% of talk in French by only learning in Rosetta Stone for 1 year. Maybe I'm not a fast learner but I'm already satisfied! However it has some issues, as I mentioned above, the app needs some UI update, and I need to be really close to my mic so it can record my voice properly.
