What is The Rosetta Stone CD-ROM language
The Rosetta Stone CD-ROM series is the premier choice
for students seeking to master a foreign language on
their computer. Intended for all serious students,
these courses are equivalent to a year of college
course study. In fact, these packed CD-ROM courses for
Windows and Macintosh are the most intensive computer
courses you can buy. Rosetta Stone teaches with an
extensive series of drills that associate text, spoken
words, and pictures. Rosetta Stone teaches you not
just tourist phrases, but also lots of
vocabulary and grammar in a clear and simple manner.
This is the only course you will need to learn Russian.
The Rosetta Stone intensive courses assume no prior
knowledge of a foreign language and will take the
student through the equivalent of a year's college
study. Unlike learning in language classrooms,
Rosetta Stone is designed to be entertaining and
self-paced. You can learn a foreign language when you
want, for as long or short a time as you wish. Each
Rosetta Stone language CD-ROM contains over 8,000 real
life color images, plus thousands of words and phrases spoken by native speakers. The emphasis is on both spoken and written language, meaning that Rosetta Stone teaches
both the spoken and written foreign language. The
interactive design is not a mere "static" course that
plays like a cassette; constant student response is
necessary and this holds the student's attention and
improves retention of new material. Built-in speech
recognition aids the student in pronouncing the words
as they should be spoken. Dual versions allow for the
course to be used on either Macintosh or Windows
Who should buy The Rosetta Stone?
The Rosetta Stone intensive course is best suited
for people who want a professional-quality language
course to learn more than just the basics of a
language. People who choose Rosetta Stone are getting
the best and most extensive computer course available
today. But don't take our word for it, check out these
