The Rosetta Stone language program aims to make learning easier and more effective by scrapping dense explanations in favor of a visual teaching style featuring pictures, audio and text. Created by Fairfield Language Technologies in 1992, Rosetta Stone has been adopted by West Point, NASA and over 10,000 schools, according to the company.
Complex Rosetta Stone consists of several important elements:
actually shell program in which language modules are loaded
the language learning modules, including pictures, sounds and speech recognizers
additional audio material that should be listen in the player for further education
Each language consists of several levels. In popular languages released on 5 levels, the rest - until three. Each level distributed as a separate disk, consists of 4 parts. Each part consists of 4 lessons and ends situational exam.
Training course of any language begins the same way - you will be asked to learn key words like "man" "woman" "boy" "girl". And most of the rest of the words you will already know from the context. For example, you will see a man eating and a woman with a glass of water and write "The man is eating", "The woman is drinking". Then you have to make out a dozen combinations of old and new words - so, according to the authors, there is a fixing material. In any case, intuition and visual perception make up about 80% in the method Rosetta Stone.
All tasks in the Rosetta Stone can be divided into several groups:
Finding the right pictures for phrases. Here you need the mouse to choose the desired picture.
The selection of suitable sentences for pictures. Here you will be shown several options from which you need to click on correct. Green buttons will allow you to once again listen to how it sounds each replica.
Job on pronunciation. You will be asked to repeat each list of words, and will give you just two attempts.
Grammar tasks. Here you need to insert the appropriate meaning of the word in correct form
The examination is held at the end of each topic in the form of a slideshow that illustrates some life situation. All your answers need to be spoken, and you don't show any text that you want to say - you have to guess what phrase is appropriate to say at the moment. Unlike conventional lessons, to affect the order of the exam is impossible - it is passed strictly from beginning to end, to return to some of its tasks impossible.
