Our mission is to deliver the best technology-based solutions for learning languages. We seek to make the language-learning experience fun, easy and most importantly, effective. Our goal is to empower learners to achieve language learning success. We believe approaches to learning a new language should draw on the successful experience we all had learning our first language as children. Learning language is a natural gift we all have, and it is something that we can do at any age. All it takes is a natural method that teaches a new language directly—without translation. Learners should be given the opportunity to acquire new language without confusing grammar explanations or mind-numbing vocabulary lists to memorize. Rosetta Stone is different. We make learning a new language second-nature.
Meanwhile, new interactive technologies are also changing language learning. Unlike traditional media, such as audio tapes and books, software makes it possible to provide immediate feedback, present vivid pictures with sounds and create real-life conversational simulations—all without translation. Computer-based learning also makes it possible for you to learn on your own schedule, at your own pace and wherever you want. And we make it fun so you'll stick with it.
