The Fastest, Easiest Way to Learn a New Language

Proceed at Your Own Pace
Rosetta Stone is considerate of your time. Anytime, anywhere, you can learn a new language with Rosetta Stone. You learn comfortably without feeling pressured or overwhelmed. Rosetta Stone provides guidance to make your language learning effective, fast, and enjoyable with a process that is intuitive, interactive, and visually engaging. At the end of each lesson, you are given the opportunity to test your new skills. And, since Rosetta Stone automatically records your progress, you can easily pick up where you left off, when other priorities arise.

Make Language Learning Intuitive with Dynamic Immersion
Rosetta Stone uses rich visual imagery to help you learn. You will be presented with sets of images to match correctly with a spoken or written phrase in the new language. You will advance to the next set of prompts once you've successfully matched words and images and pronounced the words correctly. With Dynamic Immersion, you learn by directly associating your new language with images--nothing is lost in translation.

Fun, Easy, and Immediate Reinforcement
Interactive exercises create a learning environment that is engaging and game-like--it's fun!

How It Works

As children, we gradually learned our first language through a process of associating mental images with words or phrases, accompanied by complete immersion in our environment. This approach was simple because it was natural and allowed the brain to adapt to increasing complexity.

Rosetta Stone recreated this natural way of learning by developing a method that uses a computer to mimic the environment in which we learned our first language. We call this Dynamic Immersion. A simple, intuitive interface and advanced technology confirms learning at every step of the process by prompting you to make connections between images you already understand and the new language. You receive immediate feedback, which helps you to reinforce learning. This systematic structure builds from simple nouns and verbs to more complex concepts and phrases very quickly, helping you achieve your language-learning goals faster than you ever thought possible.

Level 1, 2 & 3--Connect With the World

Connect with the world around you. Build a foundation of fundamental vocabulary and essential language structure. Quickly gain the confidence to enjoy social interactions such as greetings and introductions, travel, dining out, giving and getting directions, shopping and other recreational activities. Learn to share your ideas and opinions, express your feelings and talk about everyday life, your work, your interests, current events, and much more.

Comment: I like the approach. At first I thought the new vocabulary was coming a little slowly, but I soon realized that I was learning so much more than just vocabulary.

Summary: Believe the hype.
Comment: With all the commercials on tv for this thing you would figure it was all hoplah. Well, with the perfect interface, the included headphones and the voice and video support, I would consider this the perfect way to learn any language. Optional cds are included so you don't have to be planted in front of your computer the whole time. However, you'll get the most out of this with the picture and video software. Good luck!

Summary: The Best Spanish all-inclusive program, ever
Comment: Apprehension finally put aside, I'm learning!

Runs perfectly on my Apple and takes a small commitment of about an hour a day to get up to speed. NO problems on updates, etc. and only wished that I'd have loaded it onto a laptop for daily "downtime" practicing, because I'd be miles ahead just working in public. ROSETTA STONE SPANISH is the best of the best!

An all-inclusive BOX of gear and lessons that teach very simply and clearly. Choose your level of learning options and wire yourself in: my nephew thinks it rocks and navigates through it with ease, so this is perfect for a wide range of ages and aptitude.

I practice on one of my friends at work, which always is a good thing and welcomed. The sign of respect anywhere on the planet is to try to speak the language, and here it is, an amazing multi-level program that IF YOU KEEP PRACTICING will make you great at Spanish. It can work for more than one user, so do so! Voice ID makes it REALLY work!
This is a very complete suite of courses; commit and you'll rock. Even after just a level, I can order food (with a smile for the effort) and converse pretty well. And, best, a kid can do this (although I'm catching up to my kid who absorbed Spanish).

I'm still using it, and this review has no negatives yet! If this old guy can learn it, make the $$$ commitment and go for it. Your confidence will soar!

Summary: Excellent learning tool actually makes learning a language fun.
Comment: I had a slight advantage, as I started using this product, because I had a basic working knowledge of the Spanish language. I'm in my 40's now, but I studied Spanish in my junior high and high-school years. Although it may be true that you never forget how to ride a bike, a language that languishes is soon forgotten. My Spanish has grown mighty rusty.

I had no idea at all what to expect from Rosetta Stone. Studying Spanish in school was, needless to say, an academic exercise, and I still remember my early days, learning the pronunciation of Spanish vowels and some of the other letters (like ñ) that are not used in the English language. I imagined the process of learning those same things on a computer being exceedingly boring.

To my surprise, Rosetta Stone skips those basic language lessons, and skips right to, well, total immersion. The entire program is in Spanish, without English text or translations beyond those on the menu page. Rosetta Stone teaches with pictures; you learn to associate Spanish words with familiar pictures. And you do so over and over again.

The program "mixes up" the lessons enough to keep them interesting. It can use a microphone (included) to check your pronunciation; it shows plenty of pictures for you to choose from for each Spanish word, and includes lessons on spelling and sentence structure as well.

I have not completed levels 1-3 yet, but I can give Rosetta Stone my unqualified "thumbs up."
