Learning a new language is a popular endeavor that can transform your life. With over 40 million Spanish speakers in the US alone, learning Spanish can open you to a world full of personal and professional possibilities. Learning a language is easier than ever before with current technology. Don’t hesitate to strive for this goal because of concerns that there is a huge time commitment or cost, or that learning a language as an adult is more difficult. While these may be common misconceptions, research suggests that your ability to learn a language is mostly a matter of practice, and has nothing to do with age. And Rosetta Stone makes learning a language convenient, and at a fraction of the cost of a classroom course.
To make your language learning journey more enjoyable, keep the following tips in mind:
At Rosetta Stone, we have over 25 years of language learning experience, and know that everyone has the ability to learn to read, write and speak a new language with confidence using our award-winning program. Our successful methodology is called Dynamic Immersion® which enables you to acquire vocabulary and phrases in the context in which they’re used in everyday conversations. You will be surrounded with words, images, and the voices of native speakers, and follow a progression which will take you from words and phrases to sentences and conversations. You'll learn correct grammar and syntax by reading and listening to examples of native speakers, and employ the use of your own natural language-learning abilities to connect new language with meaning in real-life contexts. Our goal is to help you build confidence when speaking so you thrive in real-world situations that don’t follow a script.
For true success in language learning, your program must emphasize speaking the language and practicing pronunciation, rather than just learning vocabulary and grammar rules. If you can’t speak and understand the words in conversation, you will become frustrated with your efforts and may not follow through on your goal.
At Rosetta Stone, we have you speaking the language with accurate pronunciation from your very first lesson. Our patented speech recognition engine called TruAccent® compares your voice to thousands of native speakers and provides instant feedback to you so that you can perfect your Spanish accent. TruAccent is a powerful tool, and with enough practice, you’ll be confidently speaking like a local in no time.
