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

No translation or memorization required.

The most effective way to learn a new language is to be surrounded by it. When you were an infant, your parents taught you this way, by intuitively associating words with images. That's the ultimate language lab, but most language-learning programs completely ignore this.

Think about all of the ways you've tried to learn a language: classes at school, tapes and cassettes, even software that uses your native language as a base for your next one. What do they all have in common? Translation and memorization.

Instead of taking a "direct flight" from your brain to your new language, translation and memorization connects you to your old language. You always have to "fly" from your brain, to your native tongue ... and then translate what you've memorized to communicate.

That might work for a few words, but what happens when you get to a sentence or phrase? When you have to change tenses? You're going to make a lot of "connecting flights." That's why those other methods are so frustrating ... and why they fail.

Enter Dynamic Immersion.
This method encourages you to think like a baby. You'll pair words with vivid, real-life images and make connections between things you know and the new language. Soon, you'll be thinking in a new language, stringing words together into phrases that you create.

Innovative technology.
Rosetta Stone places this Dynamic Immersion method at the core of a suite of software that works with you to develop your skills. The simple, intuitive interface helps to keep you engaged in the solution, while advanced speech recognition technology makes certain that you're speaking correctly and accurately. Best of all, Rosetta Stone never leaves you behind. You'll only move forward when you're ready, when you've become comfortable and confident.

Discover the building blocks of a new language: Level 1.
Your journey begins with a foundation of fundamental vocabulary and language structure that you'll need to begin to think, live and breathe in your new language. Rosetta Stone's solution will give you the confidence to master basic conversational skills. You'll be able to introduce yourself, say "Hello" and "Goodbye," ask and answer simple questions, go shopping and so much more.

Audio Companion
With Audio Companion, you'll enhance the Rosetta Stone experience wherever you go. You'll learn new skills on the computer, and then reinforce what you've learned with Audio Companion. Simply play the CDs on a stereo or download them to a MP3 Player. Each Audio Companion activity corresponds to a lesson in the Rosetta Stone software, so you can turn your travel time into productive language-learning time.

Inside the box, you'll find:

  • Version 3 Personal Edition CD-ROM software for Level 1 (Windows/Mac)
  • Headset microphone
  • User's guide
  • Audio Companion, a multiple-CD set to play or download to your MP3 player

2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre August 28, 2010
Verified Purchase
I got this for my 8 year old daughter to learn Persian. I know Persian fluently and am able to help her. However the program is very flawed. It makes her guess at everything. The writings are in Persian script which makes no sense when an English speaker wants to learn it. For crying out loud if she knew how to write Farsi she would not be needing Rosetta Stone would she?

I phoned their customer support to see if there is any way to get the writing to be in English script. They said "no". The support person was not very knowledgeable and was obviously reading a pre written script.

The licensing is also very obnoxious as you need to do a "call home" thing just to activate it. Then you get 2 machines. To move it from an old computer to a new one is a major hassle.

On the whole I am not impresses. Unfortunately there are not many other Persian learning products out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product, but you'll need more... April 16, 2010
Verified Purchase
...if you are serious about learning basic Persian. I found I needed at least three other references:
1) A book on the arabic/persian alphabet
2) A reference on Persian grammar
3) An english/persian and/or persian/english dictionary.

Although you could certainly get by without these things, they will absolutely accelerate your learning- in particular, the alphabet guide.

Good luck!

3.0 out of 5 stars Persian language tool April 5, 2014
By Memhet
Verified Purchase
This was a very helpful tool for acquiring some basic introductory vocabulary and grammar. Such a program will, by definition, fall short of full adequacy because language learning requires more than that this program can offer. But I was grateful for the knowledge I gained and it helped prepare me for an actual classroom experience.

The program is easy to use and you can go at your own pace, review lessons, practice repeatedly to gain proficiency of certain elements. These are all to the good and quite a useful supplement. It shouldn't be assumed, though, that this tool alone will lead you to linguistic proficiency.
