Rosetta Stone

Learning a new language is a rewarding experience that helps people open doors to new connections and experiences. It also comes with its own set of challenges, such as mastering the pronunciation of words, grasping cultural nuances, and staying engaged with practice. That’s why people have turned to Rosetta Stone for over 30 years to build the fluency and confidence they need to speak new languages.

Rosetta Stone’s app is easy and convenient to use, breaking lessons down into bite-sized pieces to help learners build fluency anytime, anywhere in 25 languages. As learners explore lessons, they are immersed in real-world scenarios and interactive activities that prepare them to hold meaningful conversations. Rosetta Stone’s Dynamic Immersion method is the most intuitive way to learn new languages, providing users with maximum exposure to new words and phrases through spoken audio, written words, and real-world images. Mirroring the way we first acquired language as children, this innovative approach helps learners make natural connections, learn through context and reasoning rather than rote memorization, and build a more enduring understanding of languages.

Speaking is an essential skill for language acquisition, and Rosetta Stone is uniquely effective in helping learners to actively engage with speaking the language and receive real-time feedback. Rosetta Stone’s app ensures that learners speak early and often, getting them comfortable with using their new language and helping them grow their verbal skills. Rosetta Stone’s TruAccent speech technology leverages machine learning to evaluate each user's pronunciation in real time. The feedback it provides helps learners perfect their accents and clearly communicate when speaking aloud.

Most speech-recognition tools simply detect the words learners say, but Rosetta Stone’s app takes it a step further—telling learners how well they spoke each word or phrase. TruAccent accomplishes this by using data from millions of native speakers to analyze the nuances of pronunciation and more effectively teach users. TruAccent allows learners to customize its sensitivity to match their goals: Experienced speakers can raise the sensitivity for a more rigorous pronunciation challenge, helping them strive for mastery. TruAccent is also one of the only speech engines that offers specific support for children’s voices: It calibrates for their expected non-linear speech patterns, as well as the likelihood of speaking in partial words.

An essential component of solidifying language skills is speaking it with other people. Learners can use Live Tutoring and Live Lessons to virtually connect with Rosetta Stone’s tutors, all of whom are native speakers. These sessions help users practice their pronunciation and grammar skills, receive positive reinforcement, and build confidence in speaking.

Live Tutoring connects learners with tutors to practice holding conversations, ask questions, and get personalized feedback—all in a safe environment. Sessions are aligned to the app’s core lessons, which provide the perfect opportunity for users to put what they have learned into practice. Each tutoring session is led by a native speaker, who models correct pronunciation and grammar, answers questions, and provides feedback. Live Tutoring is also fully immersive: Learners and their tutors only speak in the target language, helping them make progress more efficiently. With both small-group and private tutoring options, users can choose the level of individualized instruction they want.

With Live Lessons, learners get instruction through fun, live-streamed lectures. A Rosetta Stone tutor will cover a specific topic with real-world or cultural relevance, such as how to describe people, food idioms, and coffee culture in Italian. In addition to Live Lessons, Rosetta Stone enriches learners' experiences with a diverse selection of on-demand videos that delve into customs and take learners on a tour of where their new language is spoken .

Whether learners are cruising the Mediterranean sea, jet-setting to Tokyo, or relaxing on the beach in Cancún: There’s no better travel companion than Rosetta Stone. The Phrasebook feature helps learners navigate common travel situations with ease and learn expressions pronounced by a native speaker that are useful for daily conversation. For example, Phrasebook teaches useful phrases related to dining out, getting around, health and safety, and more.

Rosetta Stone’s mobile app is available on iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. Learners can practice their new language without an internet connection with Rosetta Stone’s Audio Companion and Offline Mode. Audio Companion offers downloadable audio tracks that align to each Rosetta Stone unit: Learners see and hear a word or sentence from a native speaker, and repeat it to practice pronunciation and solidify vocabulary skills. With Offline Mode, learners download full units so that they can progress through lessons wherever they are.

Rosetta Stone's comprehensive language learning solution transforms learners into confident speakers, making it the ultimate choice for those seeking an engaging and immersive language experience.
