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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful, Enjoyable Program May 9, 2010
Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed using the Rosetta Stone (RS) Turkish software. So far, I have completed Level 1 and half of Level 2.

Some background about me: 56 years old, native English speaker, acquired German (moderately fluent) as a teenager, studied Spanish (minimally capable) casually, dabbled in Vietnamese, Norwegian, and Italian.

I started studying Turkish in 2007. I did the 16-lesson version of Pimsleur (very useful). I have done the Teach Yourself (TY) books & CDs (TY Beginning Turkish: good; TY Conversation CD very good; TY Turkish very good, but gets very difficult quickly.) I did the old RS "Explorer" series in Turkish (and in Vietnamese!), which was the fist two lessons from the old version of Level 1. I took Turkish 101 and 102 from my local university.

I debated over buying this software for over a year, having invested (and sometimes wasted) money on other products. Finally I decided that the cost for Levels 1, 2, & 3 was less than half of a semester's tuition for a course at a college (or of a round-trip ticket to Istanbul).

I don't think that this is the way that people learned their first language, but it is a fun and effective way to learn or review a second language. Its activities allow you to reason out the links between the spoken or written language and the details of relevant photographs. Often there are redundancies in the photos which allow you to match even incompletely understood chunks of Turkish with the pictured situations. I think this allows the other aspects of the Turkish chunks (i.e., words, phrases, sentences) to become meaningful.

Challenges: For a few pictures, I could not explain (even in English) what the picture was illustrating.
