Why is Rosetta Stone the world's No. 1 language-learning software? Because it works.
Escape the endless tedium of translation, memorization, and grammar drills. Get the language you want, the skills you need and the success you deserve by learning a new language naturally--the same way you learned your first language.
The complete immersion environment puts your native language-learning skills to work, eliminating your dependence on tedious translation and rote memorization.
In Rosetta Stone you learn the meaning of new language from clear, real-life images.
In this activity you learn colors.
You advance using language you've learned and clues from new images. That's your intuition at work.
Now that you know colors, you can easily grasp the meaning of the new words...
Throughout Rosetta Stone, you constantly interact with the program to confirm your intuition.
...and then check what you've learned.
From beginning to end you build systematically toward your language-learning goals, for the most effective and enjoyable instruction anywhere.
And finally, you get the fun of trying your new language in a real-life simulation. Speech recognition shows you exactly how you're doing.
You learned your first language without translation.
You learned your first language easily and naturally by connecting words to objects and events around you. With Rosetta Stone, learn a new language the same way: using native speakers and thousands of real-life images to help you think in the new language from the very beginning. Studies show that learning exclusively in the new language, without translation as a crutch, is crucial.
The exclusive Dynamic Immersion method reinforces your natural language-learning skills with award-winning instructional technology. Identify your learning goals, then choose customized courses that take you there.
The timeless immersion method, along with research-based techniques and new technologies, make Rosetta Stone the clear solution to your language-learning needs.

Same machine, same user.
IMPOSSIBLE to speak to a support rep.
Might be OK software, I don't use it, but I'm stuck trying to talk to jackasses who don't answer their phones.
However, without a dictionary or a text, the construction of sentences , verb forms, etc can be confusing to a beginner. It is memorize how it is written or said but without a reason for its being written or said in that manner.
In fairness, I have not completely used the total level 1 & 2. There may be an explanation or raison d'etre for how thw languge is presented in the Rosetta Stone series. Unfortunately, I have not come in on the ground floor for this language, so my thoughts may be biased.
Also, I am a Mac user, and I did not have any issues with the software installation (and I am not a tech savvy person!). I think that the problems described in some previous reviews may only relate to network settings, on a single computer the software works just fine.
My problem is with the license restrictions. With V2, we could each install the basic application on our own computers and then exchange the CDROM that has the actual language content. With V3, you no longer need the language CDROM to run the application, but the license is for one computer only. Supposedly you can never move it back after transferring it to a different computer.
To use V3, I will need to borrow my wife's computer. She will become annoyed when she wants to check her email or browse the web. We can't travel with Rosetta Stone on a laptop if we have it installed on a desktop. If Rosetta Stone is so distrustful of its customers, please just give us a hardware dongle to prevent multiple simultaneous users.
pronounciation throughout the lessons and then must repeat words and sentences. It has sound indicators to tell you whether you are pronouncing correctly. The program leads you through pictures where you match words or sentences. There are vocabulary, grammar, speaking, and writing lessons. There are also review sections to keep reinforcing the material. It is like playing a game and becomes quite a challenge!
For home based learning without an instructor, we think it is GREAT!
