    The languages are:

    Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), Dutch, English (American), English (British), Filipino (Tagalog), French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Persian (Farsi), Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Spanish (Latin America), Spanish (Spain), Swedish, Turkish, and Vietnamese.

    How do they do it? Rosetta Stone provides bite-sized easy-to-absorb lessons with a special ~immersion~ method that lets you learn the language naturally with emphasis on everyday context. That means no textbooks, flashcards, or old-timey vocab that no one ever uses in the real world.

    The program focuses on helping you learn the language so that you can actually use it "in the context in which they’re used in everyday conversations," from asking for directions to ordering at a restaurant. You'll be associating words and pictures with objects, actions, and ideas, using real-life examples to acquire vocabulary rather than just memorize it. From there, you'll work up to sentences and actual conversations!

    The program also offers fun activities and techniques to help you get the hang of it and ensure you're improving with each lesson — to the point where you may even start sounding like a local if you keep at it!

    TruAccent helps you perfect your pronunciation with a speech recognition engine that compares your voice to thousands of native speakers, giving you real-time feedback.

    "Seek and Speak" is a word scavenger hunt game, where you search for real items and practice speaking at the same time.

    The program also has a Phrasebook for easy conversational phrases and an Audio Companion so you can listen to lessons offline. The Stories option has you read aloud while listening to native speakers. Cool, right?

    Feeling intimidated? Don't be! Learning a language alone is difficult so Rosetta Stone makes sure you aren't. You get access to live tutoring (with no extra cost) to receive feedback on your pronunciation from native speakers. They also have an online community of language learners so you can chat, ask questions, partner up, and request help!

    Each language course is divided into four units, consisting of Core Lessons (the basics), Focused Activities (honing in on the specifics), and a conversational Milestone (having you review and practice what you learned in a simulated conversation).

    They take into account your busy schedule too — no need to study for hours and hours. Rosetta Stone recommends studying at least 30 minutes a day. Their lessons sync across devices, making it easy to pick up exactly where you left off — even if you switch from desktop to smartphone — and keep track of your progress.
