The curriculum is specially designed to provide homeschool students with a rich, fully interactive and engaging language-learning experience, while giving parents the tools and resources needed to manage student progress without extensive planning or supervision. Rosetta Stone Homeschool is self-paced and designed to make it easy for parents to offer language learning even if they don't understand the language their students are studying. Students are instantly captivated by Rosetta Stone so they stay engaged. Plus, with positive reinforcement and quick results, their language-learning confidence soars!
Parent Administrative Tools let you track your student’s progress with just a few mouse clicks. You’ll see which exercises they have completed, assess how well they’ve done and determine how long it took them to finish. You will also be able to select predefined lesson plans and generate progress reports, documenting student achievement for college and job applications.
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 computers.
Now you can learn a new language on your computer and reinforce your learning on the go with Audio Companion audio CDS and MP3s. Play Audio Companion on your stereo or MP3 player, and take the Rosetta Stone experience with you wherever you go. Enhance your learning with activities that match the lessons in Rosetta Stone software, and practice what you've learned by listening to the audio. Extend your study time; don't stop learning just because you're not at the computer - use Audio Companion to access lessons whenever and wherever you want. Speak and converse - you'll hear and repeat questions and answers that you'll use later to communicate in your new language.
