Learn Naturally. Speak Confidently

Rosetta Stone uses dynamic immersion to make learning a new language a natural and fun experience. From the first lesson, you will be speaking entirely in your new language, matching images and new vocabulary together to convey meaning and context. What's more, speech recognition technology and real-time feedback means you will retain what you've learnt and see how to build on your new skills. Rosetta Stone's guided, interactive course is designed to accelerate language-learning, similarly to how you learnt your very first language.

How it works

The Rosetta Stone method introduces images that learners recognise to help them understand the meaning of new words. Using their natural ability they learn to make sense of their new language through immersion. Listening, reading, speaking and writing all help to reinforce what has already been learnt. Proprietary speech recognition technology gives instant feedback on pronunciation, helping learners to stay on course to succeed. Interactive lessons engage learners instantly by introducing them to new language vocabulary and grammar in a dynamic learning environment.

Proprietary speech recognition technology evaluates pronunciation

Our speech recognition technology identifies the words you're pronouncing; while you're speaking them, and provides real-time assessment. It compares the learner's voice to millions of native speaker models, and provides immediate feedback on pronunciation, which means that with Rosetta Stone, learners always know how they're doing.

What you'll learn

This course will help you build your vocabulary and language abilities covering topics such as age and family relations. Throughout the course you will learn to read, write and speak in your new language. Each unit will build on previous topics ensuring that you continue to retain what you've learnt. By the end of the course you will be able to negotiate complex situations with confidence including problem-solving and commercial transactions. With Rosetta Stone you will also have the chance to practice unscripted conversations in your new language ranging from topics such as telling the time to discussing the arts and tourism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really impressive. 12 April 2014
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Spanish (Spain)
I gave myself six months to complete this course in order to be able to have a go at talking to Spanish-speaking guests at our niece's wedding yesterday, of which more anon... I have to say the results were unbelievable. My knowledge of Spanish prior to buying the course was virtually nothing, although my French is beyond 'A' level and that had to be an advantage. I've worked hard at it, probably up to ten hours a week, to do my part of the 'immersion' technique. I have also bought a couple of books of Spanish short stories with parallel English text to reinforce my learning and extend my vocabulary. I strongly advise the purchase of a good dictionary to use alongside the Course and recommend the Collins Pocket Spanish Dictionary which is excellent value for money. I like the way in which the course is broken down into bite-size chunks: a core lesson which takes about half an hour, followed by five-to-ten-minute reinforcement sections concentrating on reading, vocabulary, grammar, writing and pronunciation. At the end of each section you are given your mark as a percentage and this is very motivating, allowing you to go back and repeat a section if you aren't pleased with how you did. The main factor for me is how enjoyable the course has been and how much I'm going to miss it now that it's finished - however, it will be this summer's challenge to work out a way to maintain my current level and develop my speaking skills; it will definitely be an ongoing hobby.
As far as value for money is concerned, it comes in at about the same cost of a couple of terms of evening classes and I'm convinced that I couldn't have come so far in such a short time using that route, especially as we've spent three of the last six months out of the country.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rosetta Stone Spanish 14 Nov 2013
By P. A. Smith VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Spanish (Spain)|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I recently took the plunge and decided to go for a Rosetta Stone language course, in spite of my reservations about the price, having tried some very cheap options in the past. I personally think that the key to learning any new language is a combination of various factors that include vocal repetition, picture association, grammar understanding, time commitment and patience.
So far, after a month's use, I have to say that I have found this course to be very interactive, engaging and enjoyable. I have some basic Spanish already so I am progressing quite quickly through it. However, the proof in the pudding and the true measure of whether this is over priced or great value for money is ultimately dependent on whether I complete the course, become semi-fluent in Spanish and make use of everything that I have spent so long trying to learn. I won't know that for some time but for the time being I will give this course the thumbs up.

Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Spanish (Spain)|Verified Purchase
just started using it but took a while to get to grips with the method . Sometimes had to work out what I was supposed to do but just went over it again until thr penny dropped . First dvd is based on simply pictures with choices of spanish words to pick from but hopefully as i progress thro` it all it will improve . I have already picked up quite a few new bits of the language and that`s why I`m persevering as I think it will be ok in the long run

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to evaluate this product as a learning tool 27 Oct 2013
By J.Y VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Spanish (Spain)|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've wanted to try rosetta stone for a while, but the best trial you can get is from the website, which takes you through a series of pictures, where a word or phrase is spoken. With this you have to match to a picture in order to progress. Thinking there was a little more to it than this, I enthusiastically sought to try this item and Spanish, one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. Note, I'm an absolute beginner to Spanish, not knowing how to say anything more than "Hello","Thanks" and "Where is".

The software is on a CD, obviously for the type of user that doesn't have internet access, or wants to do the course offline. (There is an online version course than runs via the web browser). Once installed and activated, you're taken immediately into the learning experience. First off, it's interactive and fun. You see and hear a phrase which might be a man eating, then are shown a series of pictures and you need to click the right one. Slowly, as you progress you are given pictures that keep familiar words, e.g. man, but with that person doing a different activity, e.g. running instead of eating. You aren't given any tutorial on nouns, verbs or tense, you just have to link a previous exercise where you read a girl running, to this one. And here lies one of the first pitfalls. Where the lessons start increasing in difficulty, I found myself selecting the most likely answer based on the words I recognised. It's essentially like a multi-choice 3 part question. If you can recognise 2/3 of the main verbs/nouns, you're likely to get the answer correct. So you are left wondering what certain parts of the sentence mean. There is a reward incentive going on, and this appears as the risk of ensuring you understand what's actually going on in the sentence.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful starting point 29 Nov 2013
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Spanish (Spain)|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Again, I do have some words of Spanish from my schooldays so I guess the initial parts of the learning process were pretty basic and I enjoyed remembering some of the stuff from back then and other bits I have previously pieced together on my holidays in Spanish speaking countries.

The pack is really nicely put together including CDs and headphones and the option (and recommendation) to join some interactive live classes. Being a bit shy I have not done this yet - thankfully apparently only you can see the tutor but they are unable to see you for these sessions. So effectively you get a mix of learning types which you can work through at your own pace.

I liked this pack as its useful for people who don't necessarily have the time to get to a regular class - and you still have the interactive element as part of it. Still in the early stages (I tend to be a bit slow on these, and I am learning alongside a family member who has been keen on learning for a while).

This would make a nice starter gift for someone who is wanting to get to conversational level of Spanish, and as this language is spoken in so many countries, definitely very useful.
