This approach has won numerous awards, and has been adopted by countless organizations, schools and millions of users around the world. Join the language revolution today. Only with Rosetta Stone.

The comprehensive language-learning solution that fits your life.

Learn Naturally
Learn your next language the same way you learned your first language. Dynamic Immersion empowers you to see, hear and comprehend without translating or memorizing. You already have this ability. Rosetta Stone simply unlocks it.

Engage Interactively
Get feedback to move forward. You learn best by doing, and you'll apply what you've learned to get to the next step. Rosetta Stone adapts to your individual needs and skills, because you drive the program with your progress.

Speak Confidently
Start speaking immediately. From the very first lesson, you'll speak. You'll begin with essential basics, which form the building blocks of the language. Soon you'll create new sentences on your own, using words you've learned.

Have Fun
Best of all, Rosetta Stone is addictive. With every entertaining activity, you'll feel success. You'll want to use Rosetta Stone to have that next moment, that next breakthrough. So you'll keep using it, and you'll learn more!

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.

Communicate and connect with the world: Level 1, 2 & 3 Set.
Rosetta Stone Level 1, 2 & 3 Set will take you on a journey from the basics to a whole new level of sophistication. You'll build a foundation of fundamental vocabulary and essential language structure. You'll quickly gain the confidence to engage in social interactions. Say "hello" and "goodbye," arrange travel, order food, go shopping and more! From there, you'll share your ideas and opinions, express feelings and talk about your life, your interests and more. You'll discover a voice. In a new language.

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 Levels 1, 2 & 3 (Windows/Mac)
  • Headset microphone
  • User's guide
  • Audio Companion, a multiple-CD set to play or download to your MP3 player

5.0 out of 5 stars Farsi 1,2,3 October 17, 2009
Verified Purchase
I purchased this Farsi 1,2,3 and it is awesome! I also use easypersian (free), flashcardexchange (inexpensive),World Languages, TravelTalk, several Farsi dictionaries, Pimsleurs Persian, and watch a lot of Farsi movies from irmovies (look for the ones with English subtitles, it helps a lot!)! The combination really works! What words and phrases I learn in one mode of learning only enhanses the over all language absorption obtained while using Rosetta Stone's marvelous software! I would definately advise anyone learning Farsi to buy this and seek out immersion from other avenues!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent learning tool February 10, 2009
Verified Purchase
I was skeptical about learning a language using computer software, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this product. This is not a simple flashcard program, which is what a lot of other language-learning products are. The authors have clearly studied second language pedagogy, and they've crafted their lessons very thoughtfully. I took a semester of Farsi, but I've had a better experience with this software; indeed, when you think about the cost, compare the price of a level with a semester's tuition, rather than with alternative software products. Short of sitting down with a native speaker as a private tutor, this product is your best bet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but well worth it March 31, 2010
Verified Purchase
I am a tight wad at times and not good at languages so it was difficult for me to part with so much money for a product that for me, may not be successful. I haven't owned it long enough to know if I will reach fluency but based on my experiences with language software and language courses, a person will be hard pressed to find a better at home product. Yes, if you can immerse yourself into the language fully by travelling overseas or some special camp then you will have better results. But for a person studying at home, this software is top notch. The caveat being that the software will take you a certain distance but in the end, a person has to find someone to talk with in the desired language.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good but a pain to move from one computer to another November 10, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is very good for learning the language.

It is time intensive, as would be for any language learning process, but probably more effective than other language learning processes.

There are some annoying aspects to the activation and licensing process if you are behind a company firewall:

1. Even if you have the disks and the license card, they want to see receipts from your original purchase if you didn't buy from them directly.

2. Behind a firewall, potentially they won't activate you over the phone or chat at all if you've lost the original receipt.

3. They are on to version 4 which is subscription-based and interactive, so either you pay $20/month or whatever it is or buy an older version or you don't get their process.

So I would give it 5 stars based on what they deliver but lower this to 2.5 stars based on their licensing model, which is aimed at preventing license transfer.
