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.
Everything works perfectly. Updated fine after installing language packs, microphone finally works, sound also works.
What does not
So far I have not encountered any problems.
What was not tested
I have updated it successfully, but I have not been requested to update it again since install so I cant be sure it works.
Microphone worked for me only after using a usb adapter I bought for 2-3 dollars on ebay. You have to know how to configure wine so it will detect a mounted iso file. I did not run the installation from a disc. But from a backup file. As a side note, I am a beginner on linux. (admin:rating changed to reflect experience)
