Rosetta Stone Homeschool is self-paced and designed to make it easy for parents to offer language learning even if they don't speak the language their students are studying. Students are instantly captivated by Rosetta Stone so they stay engaged. Plus, with positive reinforcement and quick results, their language-learning confidence soars!


The comprehensive language-learning solution that fits their life.

Learn Naturally
Your student will learn their next language the same way they learned their first language. Dynamic Immersion empowers them to see, hear and comprehend without translating or memorizing. They already have this ability; Rosetta Stone Homeschool simply unlocks it.

Engage Interactively
Get feedback and move forward. We learn best by doing and your student will apply what they have learned to get to the next step. Rosetta Stone adapts to their individual needs and skills because the program is driven by their progress.

Speak Confidently
Your student will start speaking from the very first lesson. They'll begin with essential basics, which form the building blocks of the language. Soon they'll create new sentences on their own, using words they've learned.

Have Fun
Best of all, Rosetta Stone is addictive. With every entertaining activity your student will feel success. They will want to use Rosetta Stone to have that next moment, that next breakthrough. So they'll continue using it and they'll continue to learn!

That's language-learning success.
That's Rosetta Stone Homeschool.


No translation or memorization required.

Rosetta Stone uses rich visual imagery to help students learn and think in a new language. This association of language with images is an integral part of the Dynamic Immersion method. Students learn in context and make a direct connection between words and their meanings.

Building on the knowledge your student gains and their intuitive grasp of the meaning of each picture, they make a choice. There's absolutely no translation or memorization to hold them back, so they start making progress immediately.

The moment you complete a task, your learner receives instant feedback. They will speak a word and our unique speech recognition technology automatically rates their pronunciation. They connect an image with a phrase and immediately learn if their choice was correct. They complete a set of exercises and instantly know how well they did. With Rosetta Stone Homeschool, your student always knows where they stand and you can easily track their level of success through the Parent Administrative Tools' Progress Reports.

Enter Dynamic Immersion.
Dynamic Immersion is a continuous process. The Rosetta Stone curriculum is carefully sequenced, gradually incorporating new words, phrases and more complex grammar as it reinforces learned language. Language comprehension grows naturally.

Innovative technology.
Rosetta Stone places this Dynamic Immersion method at the core of our curriculum to develop skills. The simple, intuitive interface helps to keep your students engaged in the solution, while advanced speech recognition technology makes certain that they're speaking correctly and accurately.

The most comprehensive solution--Levels 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
Your student will develop their command of a new language as they gain conversational language, from the most elementary to the most advanced skills. This complete set starts with the fundamental vocabulary and essential language structures. Your students will then progress to intermediate skills like giving directions, telling time, expressing opinions and talking about the world around them. They will then move on to advanced language skills such as discussing government, the arts and conveying complex emotions and ideas.

In addition, Parent Administrative Tools help parents plan lessons as well as monitor and report on student progress.

Sample topics include:

  • Basic conversational skills
  • Greetings and introductions
  • Colors, adjectives and numbers
  • Prepositions, definite and indefinite articles
  • Singular and plural nouns
  • Family relations, the 5 senses, time of day
  • Compare and contrast
  • First and second person pronouns and possessive pronouns
  • Directions, transportation and telling time
  • Past and future tenses, adverbs and informal imperatives
  • School subjects, months of the year and social dialogues
  • Emotions

  • Household items, physical activity and animals
  • Present subjunctive and present perfect

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use program March 11, 2012
Verified Purchase
We purchased this for our five year old. He has been getting private Spanish tutoring since he was 2 and it was time for a more intense program. He was never made to speak with his tutors since they all spoke English. The Rosetta Stone program requires you to speak and actually pronounce the words correctly. He enjoys the program so far but his attention span for it is about 20-30 minutes. It is note super entertaining for someone his age but he is getting the material he needs. So far (disc 1)the program goes through grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, and spelling. This program costs us much less than his three years of private lessons and it covers writing, speaking, and reading. I would recommend this program for other parents as a tool to use at home. The only issue we have had so far is that it was not compatible with all of the settings with our antivirus program. We had to make some adjustments and then it worked fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very satisfied with this product. September 5, 2012
We are a homeschooling family. I really want my children to learn Spanish, so I ordered this. I am very happy with it. I took 4 years of high school and 1 year of college level Spanish but that was 25 years ago! So, I'm doing Rosetta Stone along with my boys as a review. The program goes at a nice pace. Sometimes the repetition can drive me nuts, but then I realize how quick my recall is with the vocabulary and how quickly my pronunciation is improving and I see the benefit of the circular review. My children are in elementary and middle school. They enjoy Spanish with Rosetta Stone. They work at their own pace but the more they do, the more they want to do. One of my children is on the autism spectrum and at first he was very frustrated when the computer wouldn't give him credit for his pronunciation, but now he realizes that he can learn the correct emphasis and pronunciation and is really flying along with it. He even wants me to order the German language program! One of my other sons has a fairly significant articulation issue and I was worried that he would not be able to utilize the speech recognition parts of the program. I was wrong. He works very hard to enunciate the words and is rewarded by high scores. Rosetta Stone won't be their last Spanish class, but it is a great beginning.

5.0 out of 5 stars As advertised March 11, 2012
By Randy
Verified Purchase
I saw all the commercials for Rosetta Stone on TV but I hesitated because I took four years of French in school and still couldn't converse with a Parisian. But I gave it a try and they are right - it is fun, easy and I can already speak and understand Spanish after the first level. Can't wait to finish the whole course.

I purchased this in 2007 and have had to install it on multiple laptops since then. It has been a good product for teaching Spanish but you need to know: support is lacking. I have had technical problems with each re-install. You will spend hours on the phone or chat if you need tech support.

2.0 out of 5 stars Trouble with Installation and Customer Service August 27, 2012
By LClower
Verified Purchase
I purchased this in hopes of using it to homeschool my children. I have had nothing but trouble with the installation process and can not seem to get anyone from Rosetta Stone either through e-mail or phone. The program was downloaded and working one night and just like that, that next day it would not load the application. For such an expensive product I am very frustrated and unhappy. I hope that others who are considering purchasing this product do not experience the same problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to learn September 1, 2013
By balou
Verified Purchase
I know French but my son and I decided Spanish would be more useful for him. Since I am homeschooling him I decided to learn Spanish as well. This program is SO easy to use and we have both gained a lot from our limited use of it so far. I would recommend this product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Slick marketing - poor product February 1, 2013
Designed for the most novice beginner to build the most basic vocabulary. You spend your time matching pictures to sentences. Example: Which picture is a dog. Which picture is a white dog. Which picture is a running dog. Which picture is a sleeping dog. Which picture is a cat. Which picture is a cat and a dog. Which picture shows a cat chasing a dog. After spending a couple of hours like that, I skipped to the very last lesson on the hardest lesson. The teaching style did not change, they just added newer words and pictures.

They advertise that you get live online chats with native speakers? Two 30 minute group sessions a month. If you want more than that, they charge you $40 a half hour.

The voice recognition is terrible. When I tried to properly pronounce dog, I tried all of the following: perro, perraye, perruh, perreye, perree. The program accepted all of them as good.

So, I don't think matching pictures to sentences is really immersion, I think the voice recognition is terrible, and the online support is a sham. I finally settled on TellMeMore Spanish. It is everything that I thought RS was and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars intuitive October 1, 2012
The set up is easy. It took about 45 minutes of dedicated time to set up the program, the language level, and the microphone/headset. You can input multiple users and change the curriculum for them -- for very young people, you can skip the writing or reading portions and strictly go with listening and speaking. The level can be different for each user in your family/homeschool.

It's pretty exciting -- the audio prompts are easy to use (even for reluctant participants), the material is good, and the price was right -- shipping was free with amazon prime and we waited for a discount through amazon.

I like that a report card shows up for each child -- how well they are doing, how many questions missed, how far through the lessons.
