Over 220 million people around the world speak French, and learning this romance language is a popular undertaking as it is a language spoken on all five continents. Many are also intrigued by the alluring and mysterious quality of the language. Whether you are learning French for travel plans, business needs, or personal reasons, it’s an easy language in which to fall in love.
The most effective and efficient way to learn French is by immersing yourself in the language. It would be amazing if we all had the time and resources to take an extended vacation to France or any of the French speaking countries around the globe. However for most of us, this is not a reasonable learning option.
Rosetta Stone has over 25 years of language learning experience and our teaching methodology is an immersion approach that makes this type of learning possible for everyone. Our patented method is called Dynamic Immersion®, and is the most natural way to learn French. We reinforce new words and phrases as language learners practice speaking and listening in an online environment that provides real-world contexts for using French. This method allows you to build your language skills beyond vocabulary.
Rosetta Stone’s program uses a blend of technology-based learning and native-speaking tutors to simulate real-world immersion wherever you are—enabling you to learn French on your own time. Our 10-minute learning lessons are easy to fit into your schedule and your life, and constructed to master the basics first. You will then gradually move on to longer phrases and more complex grammar. The Rosetta Stone award-winning mobile app is included with your language subscription allowing even more flexibility and convenience.
One of the most important elements of learning French is making sure that your pronunciation is accurate. A few sounds in French can be tricky because they are distinctly more nasal than other languages. This is one of the reasons it’s important to learn French pronunciation first, ensuring confidence in conversation. Rosetta Stone encourages language learners to begin practicing making French sounds out loud from the very first lesson. Our patented speech recognition engine called TruAccent® is embedded in every lesson. TruAccent compares your pronunciation to that of native French speakers and provides feedback, helping you hone in on understanding and being understood in French.
Surround yourself with French whenever, wherever with the Rosetta Stone app .
Download a unit and knock it out on the train or a flight. Select a 5-10 minute lesson and sneak it in while you wait in line or for your ride to show up. And explore dynamic features, like Seek and Speak, where you can point at an object in the real world and get a translation .
The best part? You don’t have to choose between app or desktop. Both come with your subscription and sync, so you can switch between devices seamlessly.
I've been using Rosetta Stone for years to gain basic competency in multiple languages including German, French, Italian, and recently Chinese and Russian. Starts with the very basics teaching basic vocabulary and grammar without any memorization. I've even impressed some locals in my travels with pronunciation and fluency. This is an excellent place to start if interested in starting to learn a new language or brushing up on one learned years ago.-Gladys
I am trying out Rosetta Stone, to see if it will help out with the correct grammar and conversation (as well as learning how to read and write the language). Within a week, I can already master the sentence structure and start learning the grammar with particles. The local community is so excited to see that I am starting to learn their language. Out of all the language learning tools out there, I 100% recommend Rosetta Stone!-Sy
I've tried other language learning software but Rosetta Stone is much more challenging and professional. I don't have to worry about earning points and following the leader board. I'm trying out the ninety day trial to learn some Russian and I will pay for the privilege once I reach the end of the trial.-Jim
