The Rosetta Stone Method:
The Rosetta Stone method teaches language the way we learned our native language. Rosetta Stone uses pictures to establish the meanings of words and phrases so there is no translation. Lessons are taught in the target language using real-life examples. Tasks and activities engage learners in the learning process. New information is presented systematically so that words and grammatical concepts are easily identified and understood.
Version 3 Language Offerings:
In addition to the five languages currently offered in our schools (Spanish, French, Italian, Latin and English), Version 3 includes these additional languages:
Greek, Mandarin, Portuguese , Korean, Arabic , German, Hebrew, Irish, Japanese, , Polish, Dutch, Hindi, Persian (Farsi), Swedish, Tagalog, Vietnamese, Turkish
