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.

 
 
 
  Images Intuition  
   
 

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...

 
   
  Interactivity Instruction  
 

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helping my Autistic Son with processing April 5 2008
By Amazon Customer L - Published on Amazon.com
We are native English Speakers with an Autistic son. We got an idea to try this to improve his processing skills as they relate to communication and it is helping! He is 6 years old, and had a good vocabulary already, but doesn't really communicate well and when he does there are long delays between responses. Rosetta Stone V3 English Level 1 & 2, is working great. He loves "playing" with it on the computer. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that when they break down words to teach it in parts they don't use root word, plus ending, nor syllabic breaks. They break it up into pieces that make no sense to me as a BA English grad. I worry a teeny bit that he'll learn poor syllabic construction, but his larger problem is the actual communication so I'm just thrilled it's helping him.

Since it's computer based, it removes the sensory overload of trying to decipher language while also looking at a human face (difficult for many Autistics), so he is getting to practice communication "in isolation" to get up to speed. We then take the phrases and exercises he works on in isolation and bring them into our daily life so that we are bridging the gap between machine and person. The transition is VERY smooth for us, and as a result, his response times with humans is much shorter now when we are implementing the Rosetta Stone exercises in person. We haven't finished both levels yet, and I hope that when we do, we'll continue to see improvements in more and more areas of his pragmatic communication.

Also common to Autistics is the confusion of pronouns and gender tags (he, she, they, his, her, etc.), this program is helping GREATLY with that.
