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 Family Pack subscription that allows for up to 3 users for 24 months. 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).

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

great price
Lori A on Aug 29, 2019
We have three users studying two different languages,so this is the best deal on foreign language for our family. We have used Rosetta Stone in the past, so we already know it's a great option for learning a foreign language at home.

The study of language is important to our family.
Sandra S on Sep 17, 2018
Daughter wants to learn Korean, and maybe another language. This will give us access to 3 languages (only one person each language, but she will likely be using 2 of the access codes for 2 different ones) We've used CDs from Rosetta Stone in the past and like the format. This is the best online deal we've seen, about half the price of what most list this subscription package for.

Is it necessary to be able to read to use Rosetta Stone?
A shopper on Jun 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Perhaps not but it will be helpful and your student may not be able to progress too far into the program. I suspect, however, that you will find that using Rosetta Stone will move your student toward reading.
Is there an opportunity for the student to talk to a live person with this program?

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.
If I choose the family pack, can each of the three students learn a different language, if desired?
A shopper on Aug 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, that's correct. Family Pack subscribers can choose up to three different languages.
Can parents use the Rosetta Stone family subscription with a child to learn a language together as a family?
A shopper on Aug 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: With this family pack subscription you can have three users so, yes, in this instance the parent(s) can register as either a single user or individually as two single users as long as the total number of users is 3 or less.
Does this include lingo word builder and lingo letter sounds?
A shopper on Apr 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: My kids use Rosetta Stone, but they don't recognize "lingo word builder" or "lingo letter sounds". Are those separate apps or programs? My kids use a separate German grammar workbook for individual letter sounds, vocab, syntax and grammar. Rosetta Stone simply gives pictures with whole word recognition (at least so far in these early lessons).
Can you use this with a Kindle Fire?
User on Feb 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We've been told 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 and that it works through major browsers: Internet Explorer 11, Chrome 50, Firefox 46, Safari 9.1, Edge 13 or greater. So as long as your Kindle Fire can access those browsers (or perhaps use a specific app for the Fire), then you should be able to use it with your Fire.
