Rosetta Stone Expands its Offerings in French, Italian, German and Spanish (Spain)

Leading Language-Learning Solution Adds Levels 4 and 5 to Strengthen Learners’ Command of Popular World Languages

Arlington, VA (November 24, 2009) – Rosetta Stone Inc. (NYSE:RST), a leading provider of technology-based language-learning solutions, announced today that the company will enhance its award-winning Rosetta Stone® Version 3 solutions with the addition of Levels 4 and 5 in French, Italian, German and Spanish (Spain). These new levels include extended, more complex conversations and grammar, expanded vocabulary, and additional opportunities for speaking that prepare the learner for everyday interactions in their language of study.

Levels 4 and 5 will be available to individuals, organizations, schools and homeschoolers through Rosetta Stone Personal Edition, Rosetta Stone Enterprise, Rosetta Stone Classroom and Rosetta Stone Homeschool solution. Building on the skills previously acquired in Levels 1–3, Levels 4 and 5 will deepen learners’ understanding and command of the language. The new levels of French, Italian, German and Spanish (Spain) allow language learners of any age to seamlessly pick up their instruction from previous levels without a gap in their language-learning process, so they can continue to build upon their success.

“We’re excited that Rosetta Stone learners can continue their language learning success with the addition of these new levels,” said Tom Adams, Rosetta Stone CEO. “The new content means that learners can go further in their quest to learn to speak a new language.”

In addition to French, Italian, German and Spanish (Spain) Levels 4 and 5 are also available in Spanish (Latin America) and English. Rosetta Stone solutions immerse learners in their new language and allow them to develop everyday proficiency naturally, the same way people learn their first language – by linking the meaning of new language to real-world objects and events. From the beginning of Level 1 and all the way through Level 5, Rosetta Stone users develop speaking, listening comprehension, reading and writing skills easily and systematically, helping learners produce new language and develop their natural communication skills.
