Study English

English is the most used official language, and also the most widely spoken second language. If you want to study English, you’ll be on track to be among 1.5 billion English speakers. That’s approximately 20% of the Earth’s population who speak English as their main or second language.

In order to reach a point where you can speak English confidently in conversation, you will have to get beyond vocabulary lists and memorization. This will require studying how to speak English in context, and practicing correct pronunciation. Language learners who focus on vocabulary acquisition and grammar may struggle to learn how to speak English with confidence, especially in impromptu conversations. That’s why it’s important to choose a program that will help contextualize learning English with practical phrases and exercises that help you speak the language. Many who don’t step outside reading and writing textbook English, may encounter some embarrassing mistakes in real-world conversations. This makes the context of the situation far more important than grammar rules and sophisticated vocabulary.

In today’s fast-paced society and full schedules, we know you have little spare time to devote to commuting to an in-person language learning course to study English . Choosing to study and learn English by taking an online course is where Rosetta Stone can step in to make your dream a reality.

Study English With Rosetta Stone

According to research, your ability to learn a language is mostly a matter of practice, building confidence through speaking, and contextualizing your learning. And this is exactly how Rosetta Stone's Dynamic Immersion® methodology works. Our approach effectively teaches you how to use English in everyday life, beyond just the words. Vocabulary is presented in an order proven to ensure better understanding of how to communicate effectively. The Dynamic Immersion method works, and will prepare you to use English in your everyday life.

To achieve success with your new language, you must be diligent with practice and pronunciation. Our brief, 10 minute lessons fit conveniently into your daily life, allowing you to study English whenever and wherever you are. When learning a new language, frequency is more important and effective than the length of your sessions. With Rosetta Stone’s award-winning mobile app , fitting lessons and daily practice into your life is simple and convenient. The mobile app is included with your language subscription and always in sync with the desktop.

To fully develop the skills to accurately pronounce the English language, you will require immediate feedback on your pronunciation attempts. With Rosetta Stone’s patented TruAccent™ speech-recognition engine, your voice will be compared to native speakers, and in return, you will receive real-time feedback. This allows you to adjust and fine-tune your accent on the spot. TruAccent is a powerful tool for helping you learn and speak the English language.

By following the Rosetta Stone program, and continuing with discipline on your daily practice and studies, you’ll be speaking English confidently in no time.

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.

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!

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.
