Rosetta Stone

Rosetta Stone is interactive language learning software that teaches a new language by immersion, rather than translation and memorization drills.

A completely immersive environment.

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.

No translation or memorization.

We’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.

A carefully designed sequence of activities.

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 works

Everything. But had some issues with the installer and internet upgrade crashing. restarting fixed the problem. Headset is a little flaky. I have to set it up every time I start the application and when entering a lesson from the main screen. Otherwise the mic doesn't work. This may be a Wine, RosettaStone or Linux issue. It took me sometime to make the headset work in Linux alone. 

What does not

Some of the help topics don't pull up. There are some installer and upgrade issues. Program crashed first time after installing and after upgrading. It runs fine now.


What was not tested

Unistalling a language, and some of the language lessons.

Additional Comments

I would give this a Gold Plus. or Platinum minus. This was not a full clean test. as I already installed this once and already applied some fixes. They were: 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.
