Rosetta Stone

Rosetta Stone is software for computer-based language learning. The online version allows users to immerse themselves in one of 25 different languages. From the first lesson, you'll have the opportunity to listen to native speakers in their chosen language and to respond using a microphone, receiving instant feedback to improve pronunciation. You'll create a personal account, so you can seamlessly log in and pick up learning where you left off.
