LINGVOSOFT

LingvoSoft is flashcard software for Windows. It is designed as a study aid and would probably work best used alongside another Spanish teaching system. The program has five games that make the learning fun and they are an effective way to memorize thousands of new words. Once you install LingvoSoft on your computer you can choose from numerous options to customize the software to your needs.

You have a choice of five different display languages and full statistical information so you can always track your progress. There are three levels of general vocabulary to choose from - Business, Computer, and Medical / Legal Terminology. The program also has updated Dictionary and Phrase Book software, so you can easily incorporate tens of thousands of additional words and phrases.

LingvoSoft offers a downloadable trial of the software if you want to test it before you buy it. We could not find any refund policy or money-back guarantee for their product.

The strength of LingvoSoft is in its flashcard format. While it offers thousands of words to memorize, the product pales in comparison when moving beyond mere word translations and into phrasing and conversational Spanish. Furthermore, the website is really just a dressed-up ordering page and it is not very professionally done. Without a money-back guarantee the product does not compare with the other products in our review.

STROKES INTERNATIONAL

Strokes International Spanish claims that it meets European Union learning standards for beginning, intermediate, and advanced Spanish, including programs specifically for use in business settings. However, even at first glance, there are basic errors on the website itself - "dictionnary", "conjugation with 1350 verb" - and with zero details given on the page labeled "Program information", it is nearly impossible to determine if Strokes International actually meets those standards. Many of the images for the Spanish program's package are also in German ("Spanisch"), so it's difficult to tell if the instruction would be given in German as well.

Strokes does offer a three-lesson trial via download, but given our concerns regarding the program we opted not to install the file. Also, Strokes' free mobile app for Spanish has only one review, possibly because none of Strokes' apps have been updated since 2014. And, even the images for the apps show text in German. This adds to the overall impression that Strokes International is not likely to provide high-quality, comprehensive Spanish instruction.

Strokes International Spanish also falls short with respect to customer satisfaction and returns policies: looking at the "Shipping & Returns" section of the website, it only references the costs for shipping within and outside of Europe and makes no mention whatsoever of any kind of return policy or satisfaction guarantee, unlike most of the other Spanish language programs we reviewed.

If you're looking for an up-to-date, reliable way to learn Spanish, we recommend that you choose one of the more highly-ranked programs in our review. Strokes International provides too little information to determine whether or not their Spanish language program delivers results.

Learn Spanish

To help you find the Best Spanish Lessons, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of LingvoSoft and Strokes International.

Would you like to learn another language? Do you have a need, for school or business, to learn Spanish? Many people every day find themselves wanting to learn Spanish quickly, easily, and inexpensively.

The need to read, speak, and understand Spanish is becoming more widespread every year. Spanish-speaking individuals are the number one source of immigrants into the U.S. They have needs ranging from government interaction to business dealings; the ability to converse and understand in Spanish makes you a more valuable individual.

Of course, it's also beneficial for children to learn Spanish as well. Kids can learn much faster than adults, and their ability to speak and understand multiple languages expands their minds and helps prepare them for the future. However, many schools don't offer Spanish until the later years; and even with those schools that offer Spanish early, the programs often lack in substance.

There are many programs available to help you learn Spanish. When looking at different programs, you need to consider a variety of factors. Some of these include:

  • Cost.  How expensive is the program, compared to others that offer similar content?
  • Effectiveness.  Does the program deliver on its promise? Will it teach you Spanish that you can actually use?
  • Materials.  Can you take the coursework with you if you want to learn while traveling?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Spanish Lessons available today. We hope these reviews help you learn Spanish right away!
