How does Rosetta Stone work

Rosetta Stone is one of the best language training course available in the market. This is becoming very popular among the learner because it makes the learning process very easy and natural. It uses very innovative way to teach you.

Rosetta Stone is one of the most interactive program for learning languages. Since it is interactive, it keeps you engaged, interactive, and open to learning, you will not lose interest in learning.

How Does It Works

Rosetta Stone became popular because of its innovative teaching method which helps to speed things up. They focus heavily on developing basic vocabulary from the beginning instead of focusing on grammar and sentence uses. If you start using the language, you can pick up the advanced aspects with time.

It works in the same way you learned to speak your native language when you were a child. This is the most effective and natural way to learn a language. It makes you comfortable with the language from the day one. It immerses you in the new language from the beginning; you will not get any instruction in English or any other language other than the learning language.

Rosetta Stone helps you to build vocabulary by showing the picture and pronouncing the word that describes the picture repeated again and again. After that you will hear the word and you have to choose the right picture from the set of pictures, this process test your vocabulary. This method of connecting word, picture, and meaning helps you to build a bank of knowledge that you will never forget. This method helps you to speak, write, and think directly in that language rather than translating back and forth in English.

On next level when you learn basic sentence structure, you will hear a sentence and you will have to type that sentence, until you get this right you will not move to the next sentence. As you move further the complexity of the sentence keeps on increasing.

      Hi Sandy, I always wondered if it worked as well as the TV ads say. I speak a little Spanish and would like to learn French. Visiting Paris is on my bucket list.

      Thelma, Rosetta Stone is a little pricey. But you do get what you pay for. I do know some people who have used it before traveling to another country and they do love it.

      Thanks for visiting because I realized I needed to fix as couple of links that are all good now.
