Beyond Rosetta Stone's amazing motivational powers, what has me hooked is the "dynamic immersion" approach. We learn our first language by immersion. As children we see how language relates objects and make the connection.
This is very different from translation work. When I took Spanish in high school, I found myself translating from Spanish to English and then coming up with the answer. But Rosetta Stone skips the translation step by helping you associate new words with ideas and things rather than English words.
With Rosetta Stone, you'll learn a new language naturally, through engaging activities that captivate and entertain, making your new language feel like your native tongue.
