With nearly 200 countries and thousands of languages spoken between them, saying “Hello” is one of the most basic and important in each of them. If that seems more than you want to take on, you can learn a handful of the most common ones. Here’s a list of the formal ways to say “Hello” in ten languages to get you started:
When planning a vacation, getting down the basics of a new language can completely change your days ahead. Not only will this make it easier to connect with people in everyday situations, but having some fundamentals down will significantly smooth your interactions with locals in all the places you plan to visit.
Make sure you’re ready to handle all situations with confidence. Rosetta Stone's Dynamic Immersion® methodology teaches you the language, not just the words. This approach effectively prepares you to use your new language in your everyday life. So, it’s not just about the features, but what you’re able to do because of them.
Do you want to transform your life? Learning a new language can do just that. Not only does it open you to a world full of professional and personal possibilities, but it also expands your thinking and gives you new confidence. As technology shrinks our world and we become members of a global community, the ability to learn a new language becomes an essential part of how we interact and succeed.
Are you worried about the time commitment? Or maybe you've heard it's more difficult to learn a language as an adult? Set aside these common misconceptions. Research suggests that your ability to learn a language is mostly a matter of practice, building confidence through speaking, and contextualizing your learning.
Once you decide on which language to learn and begin to pick up the basics, developing accurate pronunciation depends on getting immediate feedback on your pronunciation efforts. Rosetta Stone helps you get the pronunciation right. Using our TruAccent™ speech-recognition engine, this patented technology compares your voice to native speakers in real-time. You’ll get immediate feedback for the most accurate pronunciation. TruAccent is a powerful tool for helping you learn and speak virtually any language.
After you have mastered basic words and their proper pronunciation, it will be a natural transition to learn the longer phrases that make up much of everyday conversation. Rosetta Stone's quick, 10-minute lessons are built with this in mind. They teach the basics first, then moving onto longer phrases. This approach helps you acquire the skills to understand and be understood with confidence.
