As with English, there are many different ways to express your “farewell”. “Goodbye”, “bye”, “see you soon”, “talk to you later”, to name just a few. With almost 200 countries, and thousands of languages spoken between them, it would be quite a feat to learn them all. However, by looking at a handful of them, you might already recognize the most common “goodbye” in a few languages.
Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, or communicating remotely with someone from another country, getting the basics of a new language can completely change your relationships and travel experiences. It simply makes it easier to connect with people in everyday situations, and eases your interactions with locals.
Rosetta Stone's Dynamic Immersion® methodology makes it achievable to learn a new language . This approach prepares you to learn more than just the words, and use your new language in everyday life, making it the most effective way of learning a new language. It’s not just about the features, but what you’re able to do because of them, which enables you to handle any situation with ease.
Have you always wanted to learn a new language but have worried about the time commitment, or believe the misconception that it’s more difficult to learn a language as an adult? Don’t let these common myths deter you. Research suggests that your ability to learn a language is really just a matter of practice, building confidence through speaking, and contextualizing your learning.
Learning a new language can help transform your life by opening you to a new world of both personal and professional possibilities. It expands your thinking and your confidence, and becomes an essential part of how we interact with others and succeed as a member of the global community.
As you embark on your language learning journey, Rosetta Stone is here to help. Once you have chosen a language to learn and begin to pick up the basics, developing proper and accurate pronunciation is key. Rosetta Stone’s TruAccent™ speech-recognition engine helps you get the pronunciation right away by providing immediate feedback on your efforts. This is a patented technology that compares your voice to native speakers in real-time allowing you to get immediate feedback for the most accurate pronunciation. It’s also adjustable, which allows you to tweak your accent as needed and is a powerful tool when learning to speak virtually any language.
After you have mastered basic words and their correct pronunciation, it will be a natural transition to learn the longer phrases that make up much of everyday conversation. Rosetta Stone has quick, bite-sized, 10-minute lessons built in exactly this way. The basics are taught first, then move on to longer phrases. This approach will help you acquire the skills to understand and be understood in your new language with confidence.
