There are nearly 200 countries, and thousands of languages spoken between them. Wouldn’t it be lovely to know how to say “love” in each of them? If that seems a bit ambitious to you, pick a handful of the most common ones. In fact, you’ll notice that a couple languages have the same translation and many are very similar.
Especially when planning a vacation, getting the basics of a new language can completely change your travel experience abroad. It will make it easier to connect with people in everyday situations. But also, having some fundamentals down will significantly ease your interactions with locals in restaurants, tourist destinations, hotels, stores, and more.
Learn more than just the words with Rosetta Stone's Dynamic Immersion® methodology. This approach prepares you to use your new language in everyday life, making it the most effective. It’s not just about the features, but what you’re able to do because of them. You’ll be ready to handle any situation with poise.
If you want to transform your life, learning a language can help do that. It opens you to a new world of both personal and professional possibilities, and expands your thinking and confidence. As technology today shrinks our world, and we become members of a global community, the ability to learn a language becomes an essential part of how we interact with others and succeed.
You may have hesitated to learn a new language because you're worried about the time commitment, or believe the misconception that it’s more difficult to learn a language as an adult. Set these common myths about learning languages aside. Because research suggests that your ability to learn a language is really just a matter of practice, building confidence through speaking, and contextualizing your learning.
Once you have chosen a language to learn and begin to pick up the basics, developing accurate pronunciation depends on getting immediate feedback on your efforts. This is where Rosetta Stone helps you get the pronunciation right away with our TruAccent™ speech-recognition engine. This patented technology 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. TruAccent is a powerful tool for you in learning to speak virtually any language.
Once you have acquired basic words and their accurate pronunciation, it will be a natural transition to learn the longer phrases that make up much of everyday conversation. Rosetta Stone has brief, 10-minute lessons built in exactly this way. The basics are taught first, then move onto longer phrases. This approach helps you acquire the skills to understand and be understood with confidence.
