(Thomson Reuters ONE via COMTEX) --Rosetta Stone Releases New Vocabulary App for Advanced English for Business Learners, Exclusively for Apple watchOS 2 Platform

ARLINGTON, VA (October 8, 2015) -- Rosetta Stone Inc. (NYSE:RST), a world leader in technology-based learning solutions, has released a new vocabulary app for the Apple watchOS 2.  The new Rosetta Stone language app is the latest addition to the Company's popular Advanced English for Business (AEB) program-the leading e-learning solution designed for intermediate to advanced English learners seeking to improve business-specific communication skills for the workplace. The app enables learners to practice English on-the-go, at a glance. With simply a look at their wrists, learners will see vocabulary flash cards tied to their current AEB lesson, providing not only the word and definition, but also speech-enabled practice capabilities.

"Developing specific learning scenarios for the Apple Watch was a natural progression for Rosetta Stone.  Advanced English for Business is already very popular and easy to use, and bringing it to the Apple Watch enabled us to advance the application even further," said Peter Brussard, Chief Product Officer, Rosetta Stone. "Our customers are constantly looking for ways to learn when and where it's most convenient, and this new language app gives them an even more accessible way to learn and reinforce their progress in just a few seconds."

Recently nominated for 2015 Mobby and Tabby Awards, which recognize the best mobile and tablet apps for business, Rosetta Stone's AEB program features personalized learning paths that reflect the goals of the learner and their business. Working on business-specific communication skills such as writing emails, giving presentations and more, learners practice language skills that correlate directly to day-to-day work tasks and industry-specific content helps build relevant vocabulary.  Additionally, the AEB app for watchOS 2 is integrated with Rosetta Stone's proprietary audio and speech recognition technology which offers real time feedback on the learner's pronunciation. With the addition of the watchOS 2 app, the AEB program offers an even more complete language training that is immediately applicable in the workplace.

In addition to the Apple Watch, Rosetta Stone's AEB program is available on iPhone, iPad, Android, and online.  Additional information on Advanced English for Business can be found at www.rosettastone.com. The AEB iOS app is available for download on the Apple store, https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/advanced-english-for-business/id879261486?mt=8.
