Instant Immersion Family Edition Software
A fun and easy way to learn the fundamentals of a foreign language. Each set contains one software DVD-ROM, an interactive DVD for your TV, and an audio CD-ROM. The DVD-ROM software contains three levels of language instruction. Level 1 teaches essential words and phrases (ie. food, time, parts of the body). Level 2 progresses to complex phrases and pronunciation, as students learn how to talk about family, friends, sports, hobbies, work and more. In Level 3, students immerse themselves in advanced conversations that will refine their language skills and help them retain what they've learned. Two different voices, one male and one female, are used to help you develop your "ear," and each word is paired with a corresponding illustration which greatly helps with memorization. The software also includes a printable picture dictionary. The DVD contains fun, interactive language games that plays on your TV with a DVD player and remote control. The CD-ROM has 10-12 hours of audio lessons to upload to your iPod or Mp3-compatible device for learning on the go. A take-along pocket phrase guide is also included.
All in all, I think this is a great program for those who want to reach beginner to intermediate proficiency in speaking and listening to a foreign language. I like that you are immediately exposed to the sounds of the language, but that help in English is always readily available. One thing I would suggest, if you want to take full advantage of the recording capabilities of this program, is to get a microphone for your computer.
