Product Review - Tell Me More Spanish

We recently purchased a new Spanish computer program for Emelie (13) and Teddy (11). It was time since our Rosetta Stone software was the oldest version and we’d misplaced the second disc years ago.

I came across Tell Me More through the Homeschool Buyers Coop. It seemed like a good value, so we decided to go for it. So far, Emelie is loving it. She says every time she works on it how she likes it so much more than Rosetta Stone.
I purchased the older version to save $$. The newer version has different buying options. Check out a demo here.

Here are the highlights:

Covers reading, writing, listening, speaking, vocabulary, grammar, and culture (RS focuses on the first 4). "Culture" even includes geography.

The most powerful speech recognition technology available, allowing you to improve your pronunciation

Most extensive offer on the market with 950 hours of Spanish learning
4 levels included: Complete Beginner, Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. (RS is one level for a comparable price)

Learn Spanish in an interactive and engaging way with more than 5,000 exercises and 37 types of activities (RS exercises are all the same)

Headset included - my children say they feel like airplane pilots

Easy to track the student's progress.

Easy to install. I was even able to network the database.

While it is pricey, I love an educational program that the children are enjoying during their summer free time.
