To summarize, Rosetta Stone got m thinking in Latin. However, it's no substitute to an actual classroom. Also, It's very expensive, but if your school has access to it then you should definitely give it a try.

I've tried it out and the first part was pretty good, about 4-6 words.
A simple picture matching a simple word.
Picture of a cat, meaning neko.
However the next portion jumped to phrases, such as girl riding a horse.
However I couldn't make out from the picture what they were getting at.
Horseback riding, or girl riding a horse, or just horse.
Once I found out, i couldn't pick out which word meant what.
I'm assuming I was probably just thinking too much into it, making it more complicated than it really was. But I'm the type of person that wants to know the details behind it, and how it was all done.
However for some friends of mine, it seemed to work rather well, except them not knowing the details behind the grammar.
I do like the speech portion of it though, but overall I definitly wouldn't think it's worth the money, considering there is so much more stuff out there that would cost 1/4 the money.

I didnt learn anything from it. But the voice recognizer was cool, you get to pratice the words and improve your "japanese sound".
Other than that its just expensive trash...i didnt pay for it tho xD
