The days of struggling to learn a language with books or audio cds are over. Rosetta Stone is a language learning software has been around since 1992, making it one of the oldest computer assisted language learning software on the market. Rosetta Stone’s approach to teaching is called dynamic immersion, which involves gradually introducing sights and sounds, words, sentences, conversations, and concepts in a way that is meant to accelerate the learning process.
Not only can you improve your English (American or British) but you can also choose from 30 languages including: Spanish (Latin America), Spanish (Spain), French, Italian, German, Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), Dari, Dutch, Filipino (Tagalog), Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Indonesian, Irish, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Pashto, Persian (Farsi), Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Swahili, Swedish, Turkish, Urdu, and Vietnamese.
Rosetta Stone is quite interactive, encouraging you to piece together and describe what’s happening in photos. It provides you with real life scenarios to help you start thinking in the language you are learning, which is one of the major cornerstones of learning a new language.
Rosetta Stone also has an adjustable speech recognition engine to increase or decrease the difficulty of pronunciation tests as you progress through your lessons. Rosetta Stone is useful when you’re learning a language with a different alphabet, as it does not provide you with the English alphabet right from the start. You will need to learn to decipher, pronounce, and identify words and characters of what is in a photo, as you see the words.
