Rosetta Stone TOTALe combines the proven Rosetta Course with Rosetta Studio and Rosetta World.

  • Rosetta Course ®. Where learners develop a foundation of language, build a vocabulary and are encouraged to speak correctly.

Now available for the iPad, TOTALe Companion HD gives Rosetta Stone Version 4 TOTALe learners an exclusive, new way to enrich their language-learning experience. This app is available to TOTALe subscribers, allowing them to continue their language learning success — anywhere they are connected using their iPad device. Learners with a TOTALe subscription can now use TOTALe Companion HD to supplement their learning with access to Rosetta Course components through the user-friendly, touch-screen interface of the iPad.

“The ability to access TOTALe on the iPad is a reflection of our commitment to deliver our solution across multiple devices,” said Mike Fulkerson, Chief Technology Officer at Rosetta Stone. “Last year we enhanced our core software product with online services, and now we’re expanding that approach by allowing people to learn a language on the iPad.”

Rosetta Stone TOTALe Companion enables TOTALe learners using iPhone and iPod touch to practice speaking and listening on their mobile device.
