Learn a second language with Rosetta Stone.

by Rosetta Stone

Learning a second language is a popular endeavor. However, some who wish to take on this effort hesitate because of concerns that there is a huge time commitment or cost. Others believe that it is harder to learn a language as an adult. It’s time to set these common misconceptions aside. Research suggests that your ability to learn a language is mostly a matter of practice. And Rosetta Stone makes language learning convenient on your schedule at the fraction of a cost of a classroom course.

Rosetta Stone has over 25 years of language learning experience, and recognizes that anyone has the ability to learn to read, write, and speak a language with confidence. That’s why Rosetta Stone has designed language learning around a method called Dynamic Immersion®. This method helps you acquire vocabulary and phrases in the context in which they’re used in everyday conversations. Whether asking for directions, ordering lunch at a restaurant, or just navigating around a new city, Rosetta Stone has a singular goal to help language learners build confidence speaking so they can thrive in real-world situations that don’t follow a script.

For true success, your language program must emphasize speaking the language and practicing pronunciation, not just learning vocabulary and grammar rules. In other words, to build your confidence as a language learner, you need to know not only what to say but how to say it as a local would. There’s no point knowing the words if you can’t speak and understand them in conversations.

Rosetta Stone gets you speaking the language from your very first lesson using a patented speech recognition engine called TruAccent® . By comparing your voice to thousands of native speakers, TruAccent gives you real-time feedback and enables you to perfect your accent. This gets you speaking confidently in the real world. With enough practice, you may one day be mistaken for a local.
