Manufacturer's Description

Rosetta Stone Personal Edition contains everything you need to give the voice inside of you a new language. The method used recreates the natural way you learned your first language, revealing skills that you already have. This approach has won numerous awards, and has been adopted by countless organisations, schools and millions of users around the world. Join the language revolution today. Only with Rosetta Stone.



The comprehensive language-learning solution that fits your life.

Learn Naturally

Learn your next language the same way you learned your first language. Dynamic Immersion® empowers you to see, hear and comprehend without translating or memorising. You already have this ability. Rosetta Stone simply unlocks it.


Engage Interactively

Get feedback to move forward. You learn best by doing, and you’ll apply what you’ve learned to get to the next step. Rosetta Stone adapts to your individual needs and skills, because you drive the program with your progress.


Speak Confidently

Start speaking immediately. From the very first lesson, you’ll speak. You’ll begin with essential basics, which form the building blocks of the language. Soon you’ll create new sentences on your own, using words you’ve learned.


Have Fun

Best of all, Rosetta Stone is addictive. With every entertaining activity, you’ll feel success. You’ll want to use Rosetta Stone to have that next moment, that next breakthrough. So you’ll keep using it, and you’ll learn more!


That’s language-learning success.

That’s Rosetta Stone.



No translation or memorisation required.


The most effective way to learn a new language is to be surrounded by it. When you were an infant, your parents taught you this way, by intuitively associating words with images. That’s the ultimate language lab, but most language-learning programs completely ignore this.


Think about all of the ways you’ve tried to learn a language: classes at school, tapes and cassettes, even software that uses your native language as a base for your next one. What do they all have in common? Translation and memorisation.


Instead of taking a “direct flight” from your brain to your new language, translation and memorisation connects you to your old language. You always have to “fly” from your brain, to your native tongue … and then translate what you’ve memorised to communicate.


That might work for a few words, but what happens when you get to a sentence or phrase? When you have to change tenses? You’re going to make a lot of “connecting flights.” That’s why those other methods are so frustrating … and why they fail.



Enter Dynamic Immersion®.

This method encourages you to think like a baby. You’ll pair words with vivid, real-life images and make connections between things you know and the new language. Soon, you’ll be thinking in a new language, stringing words together into phrases that you create.


Innovative technology.

Rosetta Stone places this Dynamic Immersion method at the core of a suite of software that works with you to develop your skills. The simple, intuitive interface helps to keep you engaged in the solution, while advanced speech recognition technology makes certain that you’re speaking correctly and accurately. Best of all, Rosetta Stone never leaves you behind. You’ll only move forward when you’re ready, when you’ve become comfortable and confident.


Levels 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5:

Develop command of the language as you master conversational language skills across five levels. Gain the confidence to share your ideas and opinions. Develop conversational skills to plan adventures, care for your health and move abroad. Talk about government, work, movies and citizenship. Discuss family and traditions. And celebrate success.


Audio Companion

With Audio Companion, you’ll enhance the Rosetta Stone experience wherever you go. You’ll learn new skills on the computer, and then reinforce what you’ve learned with Audio Companion. Simply play the CDs on a stereo or download them to a MP3 Player. Each Audio Companion activity corresponds to a lesson in the Rosetta Stone software, so you can turn your travel time into productive language-learning time.



Inside the box, you’ll find:


·         Version 3 Personal Edition CD-ROM software for Level 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 (Windows/Mac)

·         Headset microphone

·         User’s guide

·         Audio Companion, a multiple-CD set to play or download to your MP3 player

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic, Fast and Intuitive Way to Learn 29 Mar. 2011
By Jack Percival VINE VOICE
As someone who traditionally didn't get on with languages, when it came to learning Italian I needed a fresh approach to the language and found it right here in the fantastic Rosetta Stone series. The software (which runs flawlessly on my Windows 7 64-Bit Laptop) teaches you the language directly, bypassing the need for any translation meaning that you learn quickly by understanding rather than traditional courses that would have you learning lists of words. Grammar exercises don't feel difficult as you begin to trust your intuition to give you the right answer rather than going via your native language. In fact, the only time you'll see your native language in this software are on the lesson screens where the learning is broken down into easily manageable sections with reminders to re-take past reviews and the ability to re-cap where required.

The lessons themselves are split into several different types with each new topic or section being introduced by a core lesson and then reinforced through grammar, writing, pronunciation and vocabulary sections. The great thing about the software is that while your learning at no point does it feel like a chore nor, despite the constant feedback on both your written and spoken word, does it feel like a test. This is how languages should be learnt, direct association from foreign language to object, question or action rather than tedious lists and complicated rules. Learn this way from the start and trust me, stick with it and trust me, you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything I wanted 17 Jan. 2011
By Lessar
The product was exactly what I wanted and ordered, and was delivered bang on time, despite the snow before Christmas. Using the product is reasonably simple, but setup is not quite as easy as it sounds - but if you persevere, you'll get there.
