Our review of Rosetta Stone language software – Spanish:
Rosetta Stone language software is among the most successful programs available on the market helping you to learn a foreign language. It is built on the idea that practice makes perfect and that the best way of learning a new language is by speaking. Not everybody learns the same, some people respond better to visual, hearing, or writing aids and for this reason Rosetta Stone prepared games and learning opportunities based on those concepts. This also helps to break a monotony of studying a language in the same fashion, engaging and developing all senses and areas of knowing the language.
The world has become a smaller place in the past decades is a sense that it’s easier than ever to travel and interact with foreign cultures. There are constant migrations often caused by work opportunities leading to more diverse populations. One obvious motivator to learn Spanish is that there are some 50 million Spanish speakers in the US, according to Census Bureau 2012, and almost 8 million who are now learning the language. Aside from that, the language is spoken is the greatest number of countries.
Rosetta Stone Spanish edition doesn’t stress grammar as much as it does speaking and pronunciation, reading, writing, and listening comprehension helping you to see results relatively fast. The most basic element of a lesson is learning vocabulary and expressions and connecting them with appropriate pictures. Learning is supposed to be intuitive where you don’t just sit and try to memorize vocabulary; it is more active and effortless. As you progress, the words are combined into expressions, that later form dialogs, until you feel confident enough to use them on your own.
Rosetta Studio is a feature that allows practicing new skills with a native speaker. Some topics are more challenging than the others and nothing helps you get over the bump as practice that’s why once you complete a class you can schedule a session with one of Rosetta Stone’s many native speakers. You will practice a material closely related to what you learned most recently. Any mistake you make can be immediately corrected so you don’t develop a habit of repeating them, and you will be exposed to correct pronunciation throughout the. Each session, lasting 60 minutes, may be individual or with another student, depending on how many people sign up.
Another tool to help you speak Spanish is on-line games. It’s important not to lose contact with the language so Rosetta Stone provides plethora of games to keep you speaking, reading, and writing. You can choose from memory games where you see a picture and you have to match it with the appropriate description read to you. You also hear a description of a stack of pictures and you have to choose the correct one. Another game that helps you writing skills requires you to type answers to questions based on a hypothetical agenda.
Once you complete the appropriate course, you can continue learning by joining the online community of other students and native speakers. You can participate in forums and chat with others, preserving the skills you acquired. One more feature worth mentioning is a phone app, which allows you to study even if you’re away or traveling.
Rosetta Stone Spanish edition received a “Very Good” score from the editor of PCMag who underscored the ease of use of the program. There are very few instructions, mainly because they are not necessary. The software is designed so that you don’t have to spend time guessing what to do next but to learn the language. It works just as good on a mobile device and the online tech support is “strong.” On the negative side, the editor mentioned the cost of the software comparing to competition and the lack of cultural insight, you only learn the language without the context.
Bear in mind that learning languages is a marathon, not a sprint. Even though Rosetta Stone gives you great tools to succeed, it still require you hard work and study of grammar to help you better express your ideas.
