THE SOFTWARE: Fluenz and Rosetta Stone Totale.

DIFFERENCES IN APPROACHES: Rosetta Stone believes in fully immersing the student in the language, without using any English to explain phrases. Fluenz believes adults learn best when they can relate the grammar and syntax of a foreign language to the structure of the tongue they already know.

THE VERDICT: Fluenz’s approach is much better. Hearing English while going through Italian words helps with learning and retention.
