Product Description

Rosetta Stone Personal Edition contains everything you need to give the voice inside of you a new language. The method used recreates the natural way you learned your first language, revealing skills that you already have. 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.

Discover the building blocks and begin your exploration: Levels 1 & 2.
You'll learn a foundation of fundamental vocabulary and language and gain the confidence to master basic conversational skills. You'll move forward and learn to give and get directions, involve yourself in basic social interactions, dine out, use transportation, tell time and 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent software for Mac. No resale March 6 2009
By Heather Calvert - Published on Amazon.com
It's true, as mentioned in another review, that you are not allowed to share or resell the software once you've purchased it. You also can't install it on more than one computer - so think carefully about where you want to use it. They really want to avoid you getting all you can out of the system and then passing it on to a friend.

That being said, the software is really good. I bought the previous French 1 & 2 (without the audio companion) for my family, since we are going to France this year. I have some French from school, my husband did not. The system is truly intuitive and easy to learn. You start learning basic nouns and verbs, colors, numbers and so forth, just like you learned when you started reading baby books. Before you know it, you're moving into much more complicated sentence structures and complex thoughts, but the basis has already been laid. We have learned a lot, and we've had a lot of fun. We will be purchasing Level 3 shortly.

So, overall an excellent program for learning, but they are very restrictive with how it is used by individual learners.

3.0 out of 5 stars install issues -- April 25 2009
By Jason Holland - Published on Amazon.com
I've used Rosetta Stone in the past and I am impressed by the lessons. My complaint has nothing to do with the content -- 5 stars there! However after spending close to $400. on a product for my personal use I would have expected a much easier process for installation. I had issues with each install step -- and perhaps these are related to Vista but without tech support there is no way to tell. My computer would lock up, wrapper errors and finally after 2 hours of trying to install the activation disk and two language lessons I launched Rosetta Stone and found the program did not respond. I install applications for living so I consider myself a good judge of what should be an appropriate systems response.

Calling technical support was no help -- they're not open on the weekends and only run a 9-8 operation M-F. Again -- after spending so much I would have thought the support would be there... Left alone, I researched the Rosetta Stone support site only to find that with version 3.2.11 there is a defect that requires a downloaded update. So now -- I'm waiting for a quite large file to install hoping that this will resolve the problem.

A+ for the content.

F for level of technical support and ease of installation.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware of their customer support Jan. 12 2010
By DSP - Published on Amazon.com

The product is mediocre and more importantly the voice recognitgion part will drive you crazy. You can have a native speaker (in this case french speaking person) try and it will insist that the prononciation is incorrect. Once software gets in that mode, it'll be impossible for it to accept subsequent correct prononciation. I ask my french native speaking friend to try and the software insisted that his prononciation is incorrect. What I am disappointed with the most is their customer support. A few weeks ago, I lost my hard drive due to a machanical failure. It'd have cost me more than $300 to get it fixd so it's better just to replace a hard drive so I did and reloaded Windows. However, I could no longer activate the software. You can only install it in on one machine. If you want to install it in on another machine, you have to deativate the product from the original installation first. My hard drive quit working so I couldn't deativate it. Also, it took forever for their support to contact me. Then they wanted the serial number so I gave it to them and they disappeared for two weeks. Later they wanted the receipt, so I gave it to them. Now nothing. The moral of the story, save your money and don't buy this product. You'll be better of using a different software or attending classes with a non-profit organization like "Alliance Francaise" near you.

My daughter is taking French in high school and complained that it was difficult and boring. Since starting to use the Rosetta Stone program she has done better in school and feels that the language is more enjoyable and the class is less sterile. I plan on using the program to complete a class in French that I took as a freshman in college just to be complete with it. Thanks for the opportunity.

Rosetta Stone is an excellent language programe. I would suggest that Rosetta Stone make available some written review material with this set. The programe is all audio learning.
