BULLITT COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Despite seeing a significant spike in the number of English Language Learners (ELLs), Bullitt County Public Schools (BCPS) did not see enough growth to warrant full-time ELL personnel at each school. BCPS sought and effective, scalable program that could advance the skills of ELLs through independent study with a response –to-intervention (RTI) approach. Read BCPS's Story
I believe that without the Rosetta Stone solution we would not have seen success with our EL students during the 2011-12 academic year.

AMERICAN PUBLIC UNIVERSITY SYSTEM
American Public University System (APUS) sought a cloud-based language-learning solution that aligned with its goal of affordable education and academic excellence. Offering six languages of study, the Rosetta Stone solution was used to build core language skills and replace the textbook previously used in language courses. The emphasis during faculty-led sessions was on grammar, culture and other forums to activate the language learned. Read the APUS Story
A leader in the new breed of fully online universities, APUS is in a constant hunt for innovative web-based solutions. The university thus logically turned to Rosetta Stone and it's cloud-based voice recognition software.

Navarro needed a language-learning solution for its Adult ESL Program that would supplement classroom instruction and help prepare students to take the GED (General Educational Development) Tests in English. Navarro utilized a Rosetta Stone solution to extend language beyond the classroom, enabling students to study at their own pace and enhance their English language skills in preparation for the GED Test.

The area of oral skill development is an area that our students have consistently struggled with over the years. This is the one factor that led us to the decision to invest in Rosetta Stone.

COLLEGE OF WESTERN IDAHO
The College of Western Idaho (CWI) needed a language-learning solution for adult English as a Second Language (ESL) learners that would provide the critical language skills needed to obtain employment in the local economy. With only one week to develop a six-week workforce program CWI needed an effective language-learning program that could augment the classroom experience for participants. Read More
Our focus on community and industry needs is what led CWI to develop Workplace English and digital-technology classes for many non-English-speaking laid-off workers. By breaking down language and technology barriers to employment 35% of participants reentered the workforce.
