Rosetta Stone is designed very differently than most language apps that are on the marketplace today. In other words, it’s trying to teach us English the way we’d learn it if we were children starting to learn the language.
It has exercises designed to help you learn basic words. Each language has a variety of lessons that Rosetta Stone has been using for years to teach people. It’s a good way to go if you’re looking for a tried and true method.
Within the platform, you’ll see that all words, phrases and audios are in English. It’s that immersive of an experience! On top of its learning component, it also has a platform where you can schedule lessons with a live tutor every other lesson. So if you enjoy practicing English by talking to native speakers, this might be a great bonus feature.
Speech recognition within the platform has also been praised because it has been designed to specifically recognise pronunciation of non-native speakers. I’m sure you can relate – but when we’re learning a new language in the beginning, there are a lot of words we know but end up pronouncing in a weird accent, which can result in a raised eyebrow or a frown from native speakers. The enhanced speech recognition really helps offset this.
