    I got this for my dd, aged 13. She’d never taken a foreign language before. The price was great compared with comparable programs. I haven’t used the other programs so this may be the same in all but I would have liked an admin log in to keep track of her progress and maintain the settings. Instead anyone that logs in can modify the learning path. For my dd that meant she didn’t do the work. In addition there’s no printable weekly worksheets. You can print vocabulary but it’s a screen shot and doesn’t cover what you’re doing for the week/section.
    If you buy any of the packages I’d recommend getting your own mic/speaker. The one they send broke the day we got it.
    On the plus sides, price is great for any of the packages. If you have any questions, the staff are super nice.

    Tell Me More is set up in an “adult” style. It has many different activites, and three learning modes: guided, free-roam, and dynamic. We haven’t gone too far with it, but DS really liked it. The “complete beginner” level is pretty tough, IMO, but since DS had the other Spanish course behind him, it’s a good intro into the new format.

    TMM has four levels in one, and for Spanish has both European Spanish and a disc for Latin American Spanish. DS enjoys learning both – like comparing British & American English.
