About the Rosetta Stone Course

Rosetta Stone® TOTALe® PRO is a complete language learning course. You will speak, listen, read, and write while building a foundation in language with Rosetta Course®. You will then progress to Rosetta Studio®, where you participate in live online conversation with a coach who is a native speaker of your new language. You and up to three other learners participate in 25-minute sessions. Reinforce learning in Rosetta World®, the Rosetta Stone online community, where interactive activities enable you to practice and compete with other language learners. Rosetta Course, Rosetta Studio, and Rosetta World work together to help you speak your new language confidently. All the while, Rosetta Stone’s Customer Success Team helps motivate learners throughout their language learning experience.
Each Level consists of four Units (topics) containing four Core Lessons which build language and structure in sequence, incorporating speaking, listening, reading and writing practice. Each lesson is followed by a range of Focused Activities concentrated on specific parts of the language being learned (pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, reading, writing, listening, and speaking). These activities are based on material already introduced within that lesson. Review activities test and reinforce how well you retain lesson content. Each unit is capped by a Milestone activity, a lifelike scenario where you participate in a dialogue, and need to apply your new language knowledge to that situation or context in order to progress through the activity.
