For many people, lengthy and time-consuming classes can get in the way of learning a language quickly and effectively. Maybe you’re off on a spontaneous adventure to a different part of the world. Perhaps you just got a new job (congrats!) and have to relocate to another country on short notice. Or, if you’re like millions of others already pursuing fluency, maybe you just need an easy way of staying on track.
That’s where Rosetta Stone comes in, offering you technology-backed lessons and tools that make it easier than ever to pick up a new language and start using it today.
Learn pronunciation, context, and common phrases
Instead of rote memorization or grammar drills, lessons on Rosetta Stone focus on teaching you language in context. Lessons are 10 minutes long, and each one uses our Dynamic Immersion method to help you intuitively learn specifics about a language through imagery and reasoning.
Some exercises will pronounce a phrase in your target language, then ask you choose the image that corresponds:
Others present a series of images which you’ll match to their proper phrases in your new language:
You’ll also be challenged to read and pronounce phrases in your new language. Our TruAccent speech recognition engine compares your voice to samples of millions of native speakers and provides instant feedback on your pronunciation. That way, you learn to improve your pronunciation and fine-tune tiny nuances in tones and stresses so you speak the language like a local.
Lessons range from 5-10 minutes, and eEach time you complete a lesson, you’ll get insights into your performance, allowing you to accurately chart your language progression.
Our powerful and practical features are designed to help you begin using a new language right from your first lesson by focusing on what you’ll need to know in real-world situations.
There are two ways to get started.
Each language learner has their own unique learning goals. Some just want to learn the basics to get around during their travels. Others are relocating for work and want to speak their target language more fluently. Some already know basic greetings or common phrases, while others struggle to say what they mean in a new language.
You can start your first lesson where you’re most comfortable using your own personalized language learning program. Rosetta Stone Your Plan customizes your lessons to fit your skill level, learning needs, and schedule. Learn exactly what you need at a pace that works for you.
