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 of a new language: Level 1.
Your journey begins with a foundation of fundamental vocabulary and language structure that you'll need to begin to think, live and breathe in your new language. Rosetta Stone's solution will give you the confidence to master basic conversational skills. You'll be able to introduce yourself, say "Hello" and "Goodbye," ask and answer simple questions, go shopping and so much 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 1 (Windows/Mac)
  • Headset microphone
  • User's guide
  • Audio Companion, a multiple-CD set to play or download to your MP3 player

Good for listening compehension, but not much else. March 21 2009
By An Average Joe - Published on Amazon.com
I think Rosetta Stone may be the best program around to teach beginning listening comprehension, but that's it. It's weak on other skills. For speaking, you really need to interact with a live person in meaningful communication. Reading? You might try something called a "book" (A device made of paper that works using ambient light.) I'd absolutely recommend buying Rosetta Stone despite its limited usefulness... if the price weren't absolutely ridiculous. But, I think that's part of the appeal: "Wow, This thing costs a fortune! It must be incredible!" Uh, nooooo...

product good; equipment not Feb. 15 2009
By Levi - Published on Amazon.com
The audio headset (Audio Companion) that was included was defective (wires were damaged) and I was unable to use it, which is a critical part of this program. I was unhappy that I paid extra for the Audio Companion and ended up having to buy another one, since the one included did not work. The Rosetta Stone program is great. I was disappointed in the seller sending me a defective product.

Not bad, but requires more time than advertized Feb. 25 2009
By CT, USA - Published on Amazon.com
The impression you get watching commercials is not quite accurate. The system works you are learning the language, but it requires a considerable amount of time and effort to solidify the learning. I speak three languages fluently. Some of the learning techniques I've used in the past are present in this product and are effective. I give this product three stars not because it does not work, but rather because it does not work as advertised. Roseta's claim that it has no boring drills is false. This product is one big drill, repeating it over and over again.

It works great for me March 6 2009
By Kevin O'Connor - Published on Amazon.com
Some people love it and some hate it. I really didn't buy this item based on how up to date the material in it looks, I purchased it to learn a new language and I am doing just that, I love the ease of it and I am already able to banter in the spanish tongue.
