The Rosetta Stone Approach to Language Learning
With its proven method, innovative, versatile instruction and clever, easy-to-use program, Rosetta Stone creates an effective and engaging learning environment. Language learners develop everyday proficiency naturally, the same way people learn their first language - by linking new words to real-world objects and events.
The Rosetta Stone Dynamic Immersion(R) method immediately teaches learners to think in a new language by connecting words with vivid imagery in real-life contexts to convey meaning. Learners are tested on new language knowledge at optimal intervals to ensure efficient retention. Life-like simulations provide the context learners need to produce completely new spoken or written language. Learners acquire reading and writing skills by associating letters and words with their new sounds and meanings. They become proficient in understanding the new language through exposure to native speakers and meaning derived from relevant context. Instant feedback is provided within a carefully sequenced structure to ensure learning success.
