    It could even be a bonding activity if you both learn the same language!

    "But does it actually work? And HOW does it work??" Good question! Rosetta Stone uses a special ~immersion method~ that makes learning feels natural and even fun. No textbooks, no flashcards, and no prior knowledge required.

    Overview of Seek and Speak game
    Rosetta Stone

    The program is designed to teach you a new language the way you learned your first language: by directly associating words—written and spoken—with objects, actions, and ideas that convey meaning. It uses pictures to establish the meaning of words and phrases so that there is no translation. Grammar, syntax, and vocabulary are taught through real-life examples. There are even fun activities like the "Seek and Speak" scavenger-hunt game, where you search for items IRL and practice conversation while playing.

    Here's a quick overview of what the courses look like: each language has several levels, and each level is divided into four units. The units consists of Core Lessons (which teach the basics of the language), Focused Activities (to help reinforce your knowledge), and a conversational Milestone (for reviewing what you've learned in a simulated conversation).

    Each course features 12 or 20 units of content in total, depending on the language. Beginning units might cover greetings and introductions, simple questions and answers, while more advanced units might cover navigating the workplace, expressing personal taste, and more.

    Included with the online courses are the Rosetta Stone app, downloadable Audio Companion lessons, the Phrasebook (with easy-to-understand greetings, phrases, expressions), and more.

    Rosetta Stone recommends studying for five days a week, at least 30 minutes a day for best results. While all students are different, anyone could have a decent command of language basics after even only an hour each day for a little over a month!

    The online subscription is accessible across multiple devices (including desktops, tablets, and smartphones), so dad can learn and practice anytime, anywhere.
