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.

A friend of mine recently gave me a lovely present: Rosetta Stone: Latin 1, 2 & 3. While it is never proper to look a gift horse in the mouth, especially such an expensive one, I would like to put forward a review of this software.

Before I begin my evaluation, let me qualify what I say here. I am not a beginning student of Latin. In fact, I am a life-long student of this language, and I currently teach it at university level. The reason my friend got me this software was because it is hard to get Latin materials where I live, especially of the multimedia sort, and he thought it might be helpful to me. (If you happen to be reading this, I am really grateful!)

Over the past week, I've worked my way through Level 1. This was my first time using Rosetta Stone software, and I must say that I am quite impressed by the approach. I can imagine Rosetta Stone would do the job of teaching a modern colloquial language quite well, but it is my opinion that Rosetta Stone leaves quite a lot to be desired in its attempt to teach a classical language like Latin.

The direct method used by Rosetta Stone is to be commended. Linking images directly to Latin words without the interference of a "third wheel," meaning the student's native language, is refreshing. However, the content of Rosetta Stone's Latin course fails to take into consideration a beginning Latin student's long-term needs.

Generally speaking, a student who takes up Latin will be unlike the student who takes up a modern language in that he/she will often have an uncommonly well defined set of goals in mind. I mean it would be rare for, let's say, one to take up German only because one wants to read Goethe's Faust.

For years I have spoken Latin where possible, but 'where possible' usually means 'where I am alone'. :-) With Rosetta Stone, I hear it spoken and get to speak it back. The pronunciation is classical, not medieval, which is a nice surprise.

RS reinforces in a friendly way what the Latin student learns from a good text like Wheelock's, for instance.

RS alone will not equip a student to read or write Latin with any relevance because most Latin read scholastically is not conversational. I also don't approve of the profusion of pronouns which would not be present in classical Latin. A plus this profusion offers, however, is that pronouns are reinforced.

Additionally, there are vocabulary errors, and the grammar is not spot-on.

Still I would recommend it as a supplement. But it is not a stand-alone course.

I decided that when I retired I would learn Latin. Not having a teacher or any guidance, I began purchasing likely looking products on Amazon. What I found was that, while there are a lot of materials available, the quality was not good for many of them.

They seem to break down into two basic approaches. One method assumes that because Latin grammar is an inherent part of the language and quite different from English you should start there and work your way into the language memorizing grammar tables and forms. If there was ever a method designed to deaden the mind and kill the student's interest, this is it.

The other approach assumes that grammar will come as you learn the language with little or no express instruction. This latter approach is the one used by Rosetta Stone Latin. Having tried both approaches I endorse this one as much the best.

I am convinced that no child ever learned their native language on their mother's knee memorizing grammar tables. We learn a language by using it, hearing it, seeing it and associating it. This is the approach used by Rosetta Stone. And, it works. It is painless, for me even pleasurable.

I have heard it said that we all have built in grammar engines that will learn the grammar subconsciously as we learn the language. From my experience I am convinced that is true. It is a very slow and not always accurate process. But I find that in many situations when given a choice between two or three forms, as the program often offers, one of them just feels right. Most often it is right even though I could not tell you why. It is not a conscious process.

Other reviewers have made the point that this product uses modern situations and vocabulary. That is true.

Try "Language Learning Latin SE - The Interactive Course" by "LP Laser Publishing Group" which is just as thorough and probably more detailed for a mere $11.

I bought this to help me with a Latin course I was taking. It did help me to get a bit of a feel for the language, but most of the vocabulary was useless (sandwich, telephone, etc.). When I was done with the course, I had intended to list the software on ebay to get some of my money back as I had no further use for it. The representatives of the software company sent a complaint and had my listing removed. If I had known I could n't re-sell it, I would'nt have paid for it in the first place. So be aware that you are not allowed to resell after you've finished with the course. With that in mind, it was not worth the cost in my opinion.
