I am in need of an affordable foreign language program and have seen this at my local office depot. They have several languages available, and since Hunter hasn't decided on a language yet, this is a good thing. Has anyone used it, is it any good?

TIA

While I have not used it I did google for reviews on the product. I picked Spanish because I figured it would have the most reviews.

A few are here:

This one says that if you want to brush up on the language then it's good: http://www.learningspanishprograms.com/berlitz-spanish-review.html

Amazon gives it almost 4 stars but if you look at the reviews you see that they are pretty scattered from 1-5

This one has a good chart of Pros and Cons (which is always a plus for me when it comes to a review)

Thank you, I linked to the Chinese/Japanese, but he changed his mind and went back to German. I went ahead and bought it today, I will try to remember to post a review after he uses it a couple of months.
