Every Voice Tells a Story

We learn as much from our users as they do from using Rosetta Stone, and we hope their stories inspire you to create more of your own.

"When you’re going out to serve and try and help them in a moment of need, you try to make them as comfortable as possible and better serve them. They’re scared, they’re confused. And I can help them just by speaking in their native language."
