Tips for Learning with Rosetta Stone

With Rosetta Stone,you will listen to native speakers in their chosen language and to respond using a microphone, receiving instant feedback on how to improve pronunciation.

It takes the average learner 50 hours to complete a chosen language with the Rosetta Stone Library Solution. If you set aside five 30-minute sessions a week, the average learner would complete their learning in 20 weeks.

  • Practice a little bit everyday. Rosetta Stone recommends 30 minutes in the program a day to keep everything you’re learning fresh in your mind.
  • Schedule practice time on your calendar. This will help you remember to get in those 30 minutes, and ensure Rosetta Stone becomes part of your daily routine.
  • Find a language partner This is a great way to practice your new vocabulary together.
  • Immerse yourself in your new language Look for opportunities to practice your language skills outside of your Rosetta Stone learning . Listening to music or the news in your new language, reading articles, or watching movies are just a few suggestions.
  • Use the mobile application Don’t let computer access hinder you from keeping up with your learning!
