The Russian Tutor is set up as a computer-based textbook of 26 lessons, rather than a fully interactive hypertext program. The linear structure is of the "chapter and lesson" type, familiar to every Language 1 student. (However, you are free to jump around in the program by selecting any chapter and then any exercise within the chapter. More on that later.)
The log-in procedure asks you to choose a user name and password. This feature allows different users to learn from the same program. http://www-writing.berkeley.edu/chorus/call/reviews/russiantutor/index.html

Instant Immersion Spanish:
This two-CD-ROM package starts with a simple vocabulary builder that divides words into categories--colors, foods, and body parts, for example--and then drills users on their Spanish equivalents. Instructors translate each word while providing an image to match the spoken concept. A user's memorization skills can then be tested in a handful of matching games, while pronunciation is honed by speaking the words into a microphone and contrasting with the instructors' voices.
The second CD-ROM is where the immersion element comes in. Once users have learned the nouns and phrases on disc one, they are presented with a tougher challenge. While still following a basic matching-game format, instructors speak in complete sentences, requiring the learner to pick out familiar terms and work out the larger meanings of the game clues in context. Along the way, more vocabulary and some basic grammar are assimilated.
Instant Immersion Spanish provides an excellent route to picking up enough "getting-by" Spanish for a Latin vacation or to supplement class study. Some users may struggle with the transition to the tough love of the second CD-ROM, but this process is a mirror of the real-world experience of going to a new country where English is not the dominant tongue. The immersion kicks the brain into high gear and accelerates language acquisition by presenting a serious challenge--all while keeping the course of study in an entertaining game format. Those new to Spanish will definitely benefit from the practice of listening for words they know.
This first-rate content, combined with bright and easy-to-follow graphics, makes Instant Immersion Spanish a terrific opportunity for anyone looking to grasp the basics of speaking Spanish in as little time as possible. --Alyx Dellamonica (www.amazon.com)
