Rosetta Stone is interactive language learning software that teaches a new language by immersion, rather than translation and memorization drills.
As a child, you learned to speak instinctively by experiencing the world around you. Our solution recreates this experience through a fully immersive environment right on your computer.
Weâ€™ve eliminated the traditional approach of using translation and grammar rules, empowering you to think in your new language. There are no flash cards, dictionaries or memorization drills.
By surrounding you with words, images and the voices of native speakers, our method lets you progress naturally from words and phrases to sentences and conversations.
What does not
Included headset w/microphone, works partially out of the box. Recognized and modules loaded, but microphone does not work in any application.
What was not tested
Everything else. Immediately upgraded to download version 3.4.5 (q.v.).
Application CD, has a wonky format, Windows files were not visible or readable without disabling RockRidge extensions. Installation only works if msXML4 is installed (sh winetricks msxml4). Installation crashes in a few places, but restarting the application allows installation and running to complete.
