Read on to learn more about how Rosetta Stone for Schools can equip your classroom with robust, easy-to-use language-learning.

Rosetta Stone for Schools offers a comprehensive curriculum for 25 languages to support language programs for K-12 and higher education students.

Structured immersion empowers all learners
Across each of these 25 languages, Rosetta Stone uses structured immersion for an intuitive language learning approach that mirrors how children acquire language.
How to best learn a language can vary depending on each student’s learning style and specific strengths and weaknesses. Some students may prefer a visual learning style and benefit from the interactive pictures and videos offered in Rosetta Stone. Others may be more auditory learners and find the speech recognition technology particularly useful for practicing pronunciation. Regardless of their learning style, Rosetta Stone’s comprehensive program ensures that students are exposed to all four language domains in an intuitive and engaging manner.
For example, for Mandarin students, Rosetta Stone for Schools uses engaging visuals and audio from native speakers to teach students how to correctly pronounce Chinese words and phrases, understand sentence structures, and communicate effectively in real-life situations. With Rosetta Stone, students can build their language proficiency in Mandarin and prepare for success in an increasingly globalized world.
Expedited language learning
By using reasoning and context instead of rote memorization, language students can develop a more profound and enduring understanding of their target language. From the first lesson, Rosetta Stone encourages students to start speaking the language, which builds their confidence and familiarity with using their new language.
Immersion helps all students, regardless of existing language skills
This method accelerates language learning through real-world images and audio from native speakers, avoiding reliance on English translations or instructions. For world language learners, they can start using their new language from the first minute on the program. By learning through context and reasoning, students build a lasting understanding of the language.
Similarly English language learners can build English acquisition without having to read translations or directions. This makes Rosetta Stone for Schools accessible to language learners with any native language background regardless of their literacy or education level.
Powerful reports for teachers
A Rosetta Stone for Schools license provides educators and administrators with reports, which contain actionable data to personalize students’ learning. These reports provide information about student activity, usage, and progress, allowing teachers to identify knowledge gaps and tailor instruction accordingly. This data can be used to build a personalized curriculum that targets students’ learning needs by selecting specific activities.
For instance, if a majority of students in a German class are having difficulty with a particular grammar rule across multiple activities, the teacher can focus on that area during the next lesson or provide additional classroom language resources to get students back on track.
Teachers can also use the built-in reports to facilitate independent language study for each student. They could assign more challenging activities to those who are ahead and additional review activities to those who are facing language learning challenges. By individualizing instruction using Rosetta Stone for Schools, educators can ensure that all students make progress towards their learning goals.
Rosetta Stone resources for educators
Rosetta Stone implementation
Rosetta Stone for the classroom supports educators with both general and language-specific resources to aid in many different models of implementation and to supplement student learning with Rosetta Stone. Resources include Teacher’s Guides, Placement Guides, tests and answer keys, flashcards, unit reading exercises, and audio files.
Rosetta Stone Stories
In particular, Stories are among the most valuable language learning tools for students learning a new language. These stories, written and narrated by native speakers, cover a variety of fictional and real-life topics that align with each unit. By putting the new language into context, Stories give learners a fun way to practice their reading comprehension, listening comprehension, and speaking skills.
Stories are suitable for students of all ages. In addition to short stories, this content include poems, historical texts, and more, all accompanied by colorful images. These stories are leveled for each unit to match students’ learning journey, ensuring they are at the right level of difficulty. Stories also help students learn new vocabulary. By simply hovering or tapping on underlined words, they can see a picture that illustrates the word.
Another useful feature of Stories is the built-in pronunciation practice. After listening to a native speaker read the story, students can record themselves reading the text out loud. They will then receive feedback on their pronunciation from TruAccent speech recognition engine to see how close they were to correct, clear pronunciation.
Your students will build confidence knowing that their pronunciation is authentic and that they’re communicating clearly. That confidence is critical for students to feel comfortable enough to actively participate in the classroom setting, opening the door to even more opportunities to hone their pronunciation as well as listening and speaking skills.
Flexible, easy-to-use integrations
Rosetta Stone provides students, teachers, and administrators with a seamless experience by offering flexible integrations with popular learning platforms like Clever, Canvas, Blackboard, Classlink and Moodle.
With the ability to sign on to Rosetta Stone directly from these platforms, students can easily access language learning resources without having to remember multiple sign in credentials. This integration simplifies the learning process and ensures that students can focus on mastering a new language.
Connecting to learning management systems is just one of the many ways that Rosetta Stone for Schools aims to empower educators. By integrating our program into existing curricula, educators can enhance their lessons with Rosetta Stone’s comprehensive language learning tools and activities. With coverage of all four language domains, students can develop their language skills through a variety of activities, including interactive speaking exercises, listening comprehension exercises, reading passages, and writing practice.
The ability to track students’ progress all in one place also makes it easier for teachers to identify areas where students may need additional support or intervention. By streamlining the language learning process, Rosetta Stone for Schools allows teachers to save time and focus on other important aspects of their roles, such as providing individualized instruction, designing engaging lesson plans, and building strong relationships with students.
