Rosetta Stone is one of the top online platforms to learn a new language for both kids and adults.
For Younger learners, every lesson in the curriculum is put together in such a way to improve their proficiency and includes listening, speaking, pronunciation, reading, grammar, vocabulary, writing, and review skills. Students start by learning a single word, then build up to phrases and finally full sentences and conversations.
From day one, learners are encouraged to start speaking their chosen language learning intuitively through real-world images and audio from native speakers.
Whether you are a complete beginner or looking to improve your skills for travel or work, Rosetta Stone is a computer-assisted language-learning tool, and today, it offers in excess of 24 languages including both popular options like Spanish, Italian, and French, as well as more unique languages like Turkish and Persian. Each language is broken down into several “levels” to work through as you progress.
You can opt for online learning or in app and there are various subscriptions available from three months to a lifetime membership!
The plans are based on your reasons for learning so that the lessons can be tailored to suit your needs and include options such as:
- Travel: Meeting people, dining out, staying in a hotel, directions, and locations.
- Family: Family relationships, complements, special occasions, and general correspondence.
- Work: Politeness in a business setting, invitations, time, money, materials, and merchandise.
- Basics & Beyond: Everyday items, daily routine, colors, sizes, as well as formal and informal situations.
In the beginning, Rosetta Stone works sort of like an interactive slideshow where you match images to audio descriptions. As an absolute beginner you’ll start out by learning a few very basic words like “boy,” “girl,” “man,” and “woman.”
As you progress, the theory behind their learning style is that in order to learn a new language, you need to be immersed in it.
From the moment you start using Rosetta Stone, you’re completely immersed in another language. The app uses audio and images to teach you words and phrases, as well as high-quality speech recognition technology to check your pronunciation, there’s even speech recognition tech to help perfect your accent!
