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.

Explore your environment and move forward: Level 2
With Level 2, you'll take all of the skills you've learned in Level 1 and see how they allow you to communicate and connect with the language. You'll give and get directions while learning about using transportation. In addition, Level 2 invites you into basic social interactions, where you'll dine out, 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.

Inside the box, you'll find:

  • Version 3 Personal Edition CD-ROM software for Level 2 (Windows/Mac)
  • Headset microphone
  • User's guide
  • Audio Companion, a multiple-CD set to play or download to your MP3 player

Watch out, horrible anti-piracy measures Jan. 13 2009
By krism - Published on Amazon.com
If you install this more than once, you have to call Rosetta Stone support and ask them to let you reinstall it. Even on the same computer. If your hard drives crashes and you need to reinstall - gotta call Rosetta Stone. If you replace your computer with a new one - you got it, gotta call Rosetta Stone. If the software randomly deactivates itself - you've gotta call Rosetta Stone.

Worse: after a certain number of "activation resets," Rosetta Stone will STOP RESETTING IT. They'll accuse you of trying to pirate it and say they won't reset it anymore. So your 360$ program is now a coaster. I am currently pursuing this in small claims court.

If you ACTUALLY pirate it, you never have to call support, never have to activate or anything - it just works. Excellent anti-piracy protection there, RS - you're only pissing off people who make the mistake of giving you money.

This is amazing! Jan. 26 2009
By jorjugan's wife - Published on Amazon.com
If you are interested in learning a new language fast and easy, Rosetta Stone is hands down the best program out there. My husband and I have completed Level One and are part way through Level Two. We are able to carry on basic conversations with our friend in China and read most of the letters he sends us. He was very impressed with the accuracy of our tones as a lot of software out there doesn't do a very good job with it.

As for the other reviewer having problems with the program, we have never had any trouble. Never a need to reinstall or call Rosetta Stone.
