A couple users asked about TL in another thread so I thought I would research it a little. I have somewhere laying around a copy of their Latin Now program that I bought 20 years ago or so. I already knew Latin grammar moderately well and played around with it but never completed it. It had a lot of reading texts, grammar notes, speech recognition, etc. I think it was priced back then in the USD$79 range. Here is a website with some screenshots from the old products of series, this one showing German. I thought it was a nice piece of software and really like the text based aspect of it. From looking at the the Transparent Language website, and the wikipedia article on the company (obviously written by them), there is no mention of the old products, though they can be had cheaply on ebay and amazon. Their current product seems quite different, but perhaps it is based on the old method (more on this later). They currently have the following: Subscription based online course for $16.99+/month Complete edition series for various languages for $179.95, which they say contains 2000+ words and phrases (and might be based on old course) Transparent Connect which is live tutoring Everywhere Audio Course for $49.95, which seems like the bookless audio courses of other publishers BYKI deluxe (before you know it) for $69.95, which is flashcard software + a mobile edition Essentials series for $79.95, probably the typical stripped down version of the more complete series for each langauge KidsSpeak(tm) which is, duh, for kids Looking at screen shots from google images while searching for "Transparent Language" plus a language, I cannot determine if the images containing longer texts are only from the old series or also the new. So I can't really give it a true review. They have a methodology page where they tout their "declarative method" to which they add technology to get "declarative acceleration", supposedly based on the way the brain works where declarative memory processes vocab and phrases, and procedural memory processes grammar. That page contains a link to the 5 principles of effective second language acquisition, where they mention comprehensible input and limit early output (i.e. input hypothesis). Curiously they cite Nation, Waring and others on vocabulary but not Krashen on the whole. I checked out the page for the subscription based online course, which seems to give access to all their products for a given language. It is about $29/month on a monthly basis to $16/month if you pay a year's subscription in advance. I was intrigued when I saw an "all language pack" option in the list of languages and clicked on it. The cheapest option for same is $83.33 a month which works out to a whopping $1,000 for a year paid up front. This is obviously oriented at corporate/government/library customers as is much of their product focus, but it seems a ludicrous price point for individual users. Since it is web based presumably one cannot download any of the elements and would need to keep subscribing to use it. But how can an individual user really use much more than would be provided by 2 or 3 courses. If for say a 2 or 3 times multiple of the normal single language subscription one could just try any of them out to whatever level desired, they might have a real temptation for individuals around here who study multiple langs and like to wander around languages. In summary I can't give a true review of their current offerings, but I too was curious as to what they were doing. They have survived when many other language publishers have not. If anyone has used their current products (or their old ones), please feel free to add your own review.
