Unlike how the advertisements said, the examples the software gave me were mostly irrelevant to the subject matter, and the graphic interface being difficult to navigate did not help matters.
Block rosetta stone from updating
It may just be me but sounds like you almost have to hire a lawyer to cancel, and if you don’t accept the License Agreement, how do you not open the box when you have to put the product cd in to read the License Agreement. It does not teach the meaning of the words in English!
How are we supposed to use this new language if we don't even know what we are saying. I absolutely love my rosetta stone french, it is a great language learning program, but I have got to say the tech support is not that great.
I also can't use speech recognition, resulting in failing grades! I chose Rosetta Stone, and I am starting to really regret it. I think I learned more by reading a book and looking things up on Google. The first person I talked to was very unhelpful but he connected me to someone who could help.
I thought I would try Rosetta Stone to see if I could learn Japanese. But for some reason I thought I would read the License Agreement for once. Section 1-C (iii) If licensee does not agree to be bound by these provision or any other terms of this license, DO NOT OPEN THE PACKAGING OF THE ROSETTA STONE PRODUCT or install the Rosetta Stone product, and promptly RETURN THE PACKAGE IN UNOPENED FORM.
(iv) Licensee acknowledges that, once licensee has successfully completed licensee’s enrollment for the online subscription service, the Rosetta Stone product will be promptly made available for licensee’s use, and LICENSEE DOES NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO CANCEL OR RECEIVE AND REFUND UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFICALLY AGREED BY LICENSOR in writing or expressly required by operation of applicable law.
Licensee may obtain a full or prorated refund of licensee’s payment for the Rosetta Stone product by returning the media materials for the Rosetta Stone product and submitting a written request for refund PROVIDED THAT (1) LICENSEE HAS NOT ALREADY INSTALLED OR UTILIZED THE ROSETTA STONE PRODUCT IN ANY WAY AND (2) LICENSOR RECEIVES SUCH REQUEST FOR A REFUND AND ALL OF SUCH RETURNED ROSETTA STONE PRODUCT MEDIA AND MATERIALS WITHIN THIRTY DAYS OF THE ORIGINAL DATE OF PAYMENT.
UNLESS OTHERWISE REQUIRED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW LICENSEE SHALL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SHIPPING COSTS INCURRED IN RETURNING THE ROSETTA STONE PRODUCT MEDIA AND MATERIALS.
The program will show you pictures and then a word and you have to TRY and guess which object in the picture the word goes to. The wait was kind of bad, but I just worked on other things while I waited. I found that Rosetta Stone was well worth the money spent.
To learn anything, I had to look the word up in Google to find out what it meant so I could use the software. Eventually I got what I wanted, so in the end it was fine. I learned very quickly and easily and the language that I have learned has stuck with me long term even when I have gone extended periods without using it!
