Top 10 Reasons To Love Rosetta Stone

portuguese top 10I love Rosetta Stone® Version 4 TOTALe™, and here are my ten reasons why:

  1. Simplicity. Even with the abundance of new features in TOTALe, the user experience is simple, and you always know what to do next. There’s even a button you can just click to proceed to the next recommended activity.
  2. Comfort. Community activities in Rosetta World™ are safe (and fun and productive!). You don’t need to worry about awkward moments of silence or about someone saying something that makes you uncomfortable. The community experience is all about practicing your language skills through engaging games—they’re at your level, and your practice partners are mutually invested in the outcome.
  3. Easy, unlimited scheduling. Booking or canceling a live practice session with a native tutor is super easy—it takes just one click. Our stats show that learners who do one Rosetta Studio™ session keep coming back for more.
  4. Motivation. Proof that you’re learning in Rosetta CourseTM is manifest in every Rosetta Studio session. When you spend 60 minutes conversing in your target language without ever breaking into your native tongue, and you find yourself able to understand and respond, you know that you’re successfully learning the language. It’s a very powerful “ah ha moment, and it’s tremendously motivating.
  5. Privacy. Neither your game-playing partners nor your Rosetta Studio tutors know your real identity, nor can they see you via webcam. No one knows if you’re having a bad hair day, are in your PJs, or . . .
  6. 24 languages! Twenty-four languages are available at launch (including less commonly taught ones like Irish), and it feels great that we’re able to leverage our platform to go beyond the mainstream Spanish, English, and French.
  7. On-the-go innovation. The Rosetta Stone TOTALe Mobile Companion™ lets me do cool stuff on my iPhone® when I’m away from my computer. And, since the speech-recognition technology runs locally, it works even if I lose my wireless connection.
  8. Superior sound quality. We give you a first-rate headset with microphone so that our excellent audio comes through consistently, and so that there are no barriers to easy conversation practice.
  9. Native speakers. Our Rosetta Studio tutors are fantastic and they love what they do. Their passion is apparent from the moment you start interacting with them. These native speakers provide positive guidance, so you’ll never feel as though you’re being graded.
  10. Personal success agents. Members of our Customer Success Team are crazy about learners’ success, and they work around your schedule to keep progress on track. If you fall behind on your own study plan, they reach out, but they don’t pester. Our Customer Success agents are there for you—it’s a level of service unheard of in our industry.
