Rosetta Stone Japanese - may I have opinions please?

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by derekdalek, Mar 15, 2012.

  1. Dear mfl-ers

    I have been asked by a post 16 student at school whether Rosetta Stone for Japanese is worth buying as he wishes to learn that language.
    Has anyone used this? What do you think of it? Is it worth the money?
    Is there anything else on the market that is good ?
    Thanks [​IMG]
     
  2. It's very pricey. My personal preference would be the EuroTalk series - which includes Japanese: http://eurotalk.com/en/
    I have used this series to pick up the basics of Polish and Mandarin Chinese. Here's my review of the starter CD-ROM for learners of Mandarin Chinese. Other languages are delivered in the same way:

    I would probably start with the (free) BBC Japanese course:

  3. Thanks very much for that, Graham. I have fed your recommendations back to the lad at school.
