Rosetta Stone Computer-based, foreign language program. The teacher may set up the program in many ways, but the idea is that the student sees four choices, hears a word or sentence, and chooses the right one. The student may also see the written words if desired. The system may also be set up for the student to speak into the microphone and see if his accent matches the speaker in the program. This program is also a substantial investment, but it guarantees results. Used by the State Department to train diplomats, Rosetta Stone is available in almost every language on the planet.
