Tell Me More is an award-winning language program, boasting awards from the New York Times, Top 10 Reviews and many more. Over 7 million people use Tell Me More Spanish including students, travelers and professionals. The FBI, BMW, ExxonMobile, Toyota and several other credible organizations are using Tell Me More Spanish.
Overall, Tell Me More Spanish is the #1 reviewed program. Its features include voice recognition technology, S.E.T.S. (Spoken Error Tracking System), interactive role-play, audio lessons, video lessons, interactive games, self-progress testing, lessons involving current news events and self-recorded audio lessons.
The program comes in 10 distinct sets for teaching beginner, intermediate and advanced users. Upon first use of the program, you take a placement test. After the placement test is finished, the program places you on a learning path that suits your level. If you finish all of the program sets, you can master your skills by enrolling in an online class that comes with a personal coach and 2,000 hours of interactive training materials.
As for customer services, there is not another Spanish program that comes close. Tell Me More comes with a 24/7 online advisor for questions and problems. It also comes with EuroNews lessons which incorporate video, grammer and vocabulary exercises that teach you about a current news topic.
Additionally, Tell Me More Spanish is portable. It can be used on your pocket PC (Netbooks) and MP3 player (iPod and other similar devices). You can also create audio CD's with the files on the program and your own recorder files. And, you can print vocabulary lists as well as grammatical explanations.
Of course, every product has its negatives and this one comes with two mild downsides. One, software is quite advanced with many features. This can be a little tricky to get a hang of in the beginning. Also, if you decide to purchase, it can be a little expensive especially if you want to buy all 10 sets and the online class. Nonetheless, the price is worth it for the value you receive.
