Product Description:

It's the same! But, different. Leaving the world of CDs behind, Rosetta Stone Homeschool has taken the leap into the world of online subscription formats. As with every major format change, there are advantages and disadvantages. You will probably like the changes which provide more mobility and more flexibility (unless you do not have access to high speed internet or do not wish to enter the internet world). All the aspects of the Rosetta Stone approach to language acquisition that we've come to love and expect are there. It's just packaged differently.

So, what's different? First of all, there are only four products (instead of the 70 or so we carried before). Each product is an online subscription. This subscription gives one student 12 months of access. You purchase a subscription then you choose your language as part of the activation process. There are 24 languages available and a subscription purchase lets you choose any one of the 24 (Family Pack subscribers can choose up to three different languages). The subscription also gives you access to ALL levels of instruction available in that language. All languages have at least three levels. Some languages have five levels. If workbooks, quizzes, or tests are available (only for a few languages), access to pdf versions of this material comes with the subscription. Because all content is online, you can access it from a computer, laptop, or mobile device and you can access it from anywhere that you have a fast internet connection. You can even download lessons (with Audio Companion) to use when the internet is not available.

So, what's the same? The dynamic immersion instructional methodology, the voice recognition software, and the student tracking abilities. In other words, all the good stuff that has made Rosetta Stone distinctive and a favorite with homeschoolers. And there is still a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee if you are not satisfied with the program. To get a sense of the program, check out the video demo found on our website.

Rosetta Stone's "Dynamic Immersion" methodology combines multimedia technology with a total immersion approach utilizing four aspects images, intuition, interactivity, and instruction. Real-life images are coupled with words or phrases, both spoken and written. There is constant interaction with the program, making selections which are confirmed if correct. Understanding of the language is built through spoken responses to real-life simulations utilizing TruAccent® speech-recognition technology which listens, analyzes, and corrects the student response. [Headset with microphone is needed but not included.]

Core Lessons cover: A. Listening & Reading combined; B. Listening only, C. Reading only, D. Speaking, and E. Writing. There are Focused Activities that concentrate on language skills vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, reading, speaking, listening, writing and Adaptive Recall which are review sequences. While the general content and methodology is similar between the various Rosetta Stone versions, the Homeschool version is unique in giving parents the ability to plan and track the student's progress through the lessons and activities and to print data reports.

Rosetta Stone Levels (in any language) cover the following material:

Level 1 Build a Foundation. Fundamental vocabulary, essential language structure, basic conversational skills including greetings and introductions. Includes colors, adjectives, numbers, prepositions, definite and indefinite articles, singular and plural nouns, family relations, the five senses and time of day.

Level 2 Navigate Your Surroundings. Builds on vocabulary and essential language structure. Giving/getting directions, using transportation, telling time, dining out, and enjoying basic social interactions. Includes verb tenses, adverbs, formal imperatives, school subjects, months, and emotions.

Level 3 Connect with the World. Builds on language fundamentals and conversational skills. Learn to share ideas and opinions, express your feelings and talk about everyday life, your interests, your work, subjective, present perfect, weights, and measurements.

Level 4 Deepen Your Understanding. Expands on what you learned in Levels 1, 2, and 3. Negotiate complex situations with confidence. Develop conversational skills to navigate the workplace, care for your health, arrange repairs, and move abroad.

Level 5 Develop Your Command of the Language. Refine crucial communication skills and make full use of everything you've learned in Levels 1-4. Discuss entertainment and culture, government and the marketplace, and celebrate language-learning success.

The following languages are available (with number of levels in parenthesis): Arabic (3), Chinese (Mandarin) (3), Dutch (3), English (American) (5), English (British) (5), Filipino (Tagalog) (3), French (5), German (5), Greek (3), Hebrew (3), Hindi (3), Irish (3), Italian (5), Japanese (3), Korean (3), Persian (Farsi) (3), Polish (3), Portuguese (Brazil) (3), Russian (3), Spanish (Latin American) (5 Workbooks for Levels 1-3), Spanish (Spain) (5), Swedish (3), Turkish (3), and Vietnamese (3).

Latest version of Adobe Flash Player

Computer Hardware Requirements:

Windows: 2.33 GHz or faster x86-compatible processor OR Intel® Atom 1.6GHz or faster processor for netbooks

Mac: Intel Core Duo 1.33GHz or faster processor

1 GB of RAM or higher

1024 x 768 display resolution

High-Speed Internet connection required (at least 768bps)

In terms of high school credit equivalency (as before) Rosetta Stone is not "accredited" because it is not a school, but each level of the Homeschool program has a "Full Year Curriculum" lesson plan. If you follow that lesson plan, each level will be a 36 week program if you're not using the supplemental (suggestions in teacher materials) materials, or 45 weeks if you are (equivalent to 1 school year). Not all schools or boards will accept RS as credit, so checking to ensure it will be accepted is recommended.

While it's a bit sad to say "good-bye" to Rosetta Stone's old standby CD-based program, it's easy to see the advantages and necessity of increased mobility. Thankfully, favorite features have been retained and the program remains a strong option for high school foreign language. As before, we encourage the use of a grammar workbook to complement the strong conversational aspect of the program. ~ Janice

My Daughter needs foreign language studies for school.
Natalie W on Jun 20, 2019
CAn I buy this for my grandson and have my daughter activate it in another state?
A shopper on Aug 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can. Just list your daughter as the shipping address and her email address on the billing information. That way she will be sent the email with the information on how to activate.
Does this come with a workbook?
A shopper on Aug 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Workbooks are not available for every language but if there is a workbook available for the language you choose, then it is available from the program as a pdf. It does not come with a printed workbook.
Do I need to purchase a headset microphone to use with Rosetta Stone?
User on Aug 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you will need a decent headset with a microphone. We used ones between $30-$40 from Amazon and it worked fine. We needed something a bit over the cheapest sets, because the microphones wouldn’t pick up the kids’ voices well, and it got very frustrating.
how many days a week do you do this program?
A shopper on Jun 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We worked at a pace of about 3-4 hrs a week to get our credit hours of 120 hrs. So most weeks he worked 1hrs 3-4x week
Is this the LLV3 version or the new Foundation Silver?
A shopper on Jan 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It is Version 3.
Which version of Rosetta Stone is this LLV3 or the new Foundation Silver?
A shopper on Jan 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The homeschool subscriptions are for Rosetta Stone Version 3. It's our understanding that the Foundation Silver is a college-level series.
How do we get the specific language we want? Spanish (Latin America)?
A shopper on Aug 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Choosing the language is part of the activation process. With the purchase of the subscription, you can choose any language but you do have to make a choice. Once a choice is made, you have access to all levels of instruction available for that language

BEST ANSWER: No live people, but there are a lot of opportunities to hear and to speak French. It will not pass you to the next question if you don't pronounce the words correctly.
My daughter is on level 2 of the French homeschool dvd's. If we purchase this, will she be able to pick up where she is now?
Ann on Aug 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm assuming you mean the old CD Rosetta Stone homeschool program. Yes, she will be able to pick up where she is now. One of the beauties of the subscription is that the student has all levels available. If she's ready for Level 3, she should be able to just pick up right there. The content is essentially the same - only the delivery method has changed.
If I purchase this today, when does the actual subscription time begin? I’d like to purchase now, but not begin for over a month.
A shopper on Jul 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The time begins when you activate your account. You can purchase now but not activate until you're ready to use it.
Can I use this product to renew an existing Rosetta Stone subscription?
A shopper on Jun 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you purchase a new subscription you will lose the progress that your student currently has. Instead, you can set it up for auto-renewal through your My Account and it will save your progress that way.

Rosetta has room for improvement.
I would have preferred a book based program. I received an email with links to download supplemental material. Had to figure which material went with which level and print everything (expensive). The answer keys are very small and hard to grade. Also my student says it goes too fast and some of the worksheets don’t line up with the lesson.
