How it works

Rosetta Stone employs an immersive system, providing students with a language experience that relies on seeing, hearing, and speaking. Over the course of three years, students learn hundreds of useful vocabulary words and intuitively learn rules of grammar and discourse, with a view to conversational fluency.
 
In the First Year (Units 1-7), students learn basic sentences and develop a strong familiarity with the language. Students study definite and indefinite articles, singular and plural nouns, subject-verb agreement, adjectives and adverbs, verb tenses, direct and indirect objects, and more.
 
In the Second Year (Units 8-14), students build on the solid foundation established during the first year. They study more advanced forms of preposition usage, modal verbs, imperative sentence forms, the subjunctive mood, passive & active voice, and additional types of adjectives and adverbs.
 
In the Third Year (Units 15-20), students conclude their study of their chosen language. Students become familiar with new types of sentences and study more advanced concepts, such as intransitive verbs, formal and informal imperative sentences, the imperfect subjunctive, direct and indirect discourse, and nominalization.
 
 

Rosetta Stone uses multimedia to teach foreign languages. Speakers and a microphone are required to complete each course. Headsets are available from Setonbooks.com.

Please note: Rosetta Stone is designed to allow students to complete the course material without the assistance of teachers. Due to the interactive and individualized nature of the courses, and in order to maximize the number of available language offerings, Seton does not provide academic counseling for Rosetta Stone courses. Technical support is provided by Rosetta Stone over phone, chat, and email. (Questions about Unit Tests in SetonOnline can be addressed to Seton’s academic counselors.)
