Stick with the facts!:
When I started doing a lot of research on different Spanish teaching software, it wasn't long before my head was spinning to no end! I often found myself waiting for days to get simple replies from their customer support groups and the information I found on their websites were in a lot of cases biased. If the information did not seem biased, there was no way to prove it. Which left me doing a lot of second-guessing. So I learned to stick with the facts! When I stick to the facts, I am taking very little interest in customer reviews or personal opinions that the company may have on their products. I want to see what the product does and what's in it! For instance, what types of features does the software have? Are these the features that can help me learn? Is there a money back guarantee? These are the types of questions you need to ask yourself every time you look at a learning language software site. The facts should be your deal breakers. If the software does not have what I am looking for, I should make a note of that and go on to the next learning language software.
Look for customer reviews away from the product site!:
I found one of the most helpful sources of information in my search for a great learning language software review on amazon.com! Go to amazon.com and input the name of that software you're interested in, in the search box. Several listings for the product will show up with dozens and sometime hundreds of customer reviews. This is a wealth of information that you can read and get a good insight into the software's teaching ability without actually buying it.
Do a Google search!:
Take a few minutes to search for the software on Google. When you do find a website reviewing the software be sure to look for the bad reports as well as the good. I promise that there is not one software available to you that is perfect. When a review site is openly posting the bad remarks along with the good you can be pretty confident that the review you are reading is honest and probably contains some very good information for you! Be sure to take these tips into consideration when you do your next search for learning language software reviews.
