What is The Rosetta Stone language course?
The Rosetta Stone series is the premier choice for students seeking to master a foreign language on their computer. Intended for all serious students, these courses are equivalent to a year of college course study. In fact, these packed courses for Windows and Macintosh are the most intensive computer courses you can buy. Rosetta Stone teaches with an extensive series of drills that associate text, spoken words, and pictures. Rosetta Stone teaches you not just tourist phrases, but also lots of vocabulary and grammar in a clear and simple manner. This is the only course you will need to learn your choice of Arabic (Modern Standard), Chinese (Mandarin), Danish, Dutch, American English, British English, French, German, Indonesian, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Korean, Latin, Japanese, Pashto, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Vietnamese, and Welsh.
The Rosetta Stone intensive courses assume no prior knowledge of a foreign language and will take the student through the equivalent of a year's college study. Unlike learning in language classrooms, Rosetta Stone is designed to be entertaining and self-paced. You can learn a foreign language when you want, for as long or short a time as you wish. Each Rosetta Stone language disc contains over 8,000 real life color images, plus thousands of words and phrases spoken by native speakers. The emphasis is on both spoken and written language, meaning that Rosetta Stone teaches both the spoken and written foreign language. The interactive design is not a mere "static" course that plays like a cassette; constant student response is necessary and this holds the student's attention and improves retention of new material. Built-in speech recognition aids the student in pronouncing the words as they should be spoken. Dual versions allow for the course to be used on either Macintosh or Windows computers.
