It sounds great...if only it worked!

In my line of work, it's a great idea to learn another language, and Spanish being the main lingo outside of English in my area, the Instant Immersion program seemed like the ticket.

It may very well be. If it WORKED.

I don't want to stay how many times I put the various DVDs that come with this program in my computer, to bring up a program that did nothing. I looked in the box: no instructions. I went to the developer's website: no useful information. I went to another Immersion-only website: no helpful links.

Now this might be because I have a Macbook, and not a PC. But the program is supposed to be Mac-compatible, so what gives??

I may revise this if and when the developer gets back to me (so far, no replies, and with a program this problematic, that's not a good sign.)

I give this two stars for what it MIGHT be like if I can ever figure out how to make this work, and of course, the bargain price. But it ain't much of a bargain if it doesn't WORK. I'll be glad to revise it if and when.

Meanwhile, Rosetta Stone's looking better and better. Now if it only they'd do something bout the price!

Aside from learning the language in school or some other specialized institution, there are many options out there for self study. In the US "Rosetta Stone" series has been …

"Instant Immersion" Spanish does *not* use immersion to teach Spanish. This is a standard "repeat after me" memorization course.    The box boldly claims "As effective as Rosetta Stone for a fraction of the cost!". The only truth to that is that it is a fraction of the cost. Rosetta Stone is in a whole different league (the professional product league).    Rosetta Stone uses voice recognition software to judge if you are speaking correctly. Instant Immersion …
