really expensive but so helpful 5/5
By sori k
spanish was my first language as a small child but coming from an interracial household my parents stopped teaching me spanish because they mistakenly thought it’d confuse me, so i nearly lost the language. rosetta stone is SOOOO helpful in regaining my ability and learning how to say things that will actually come up in conversation. i fully recommend.... if your wallet allows. it’s so expensive it’s crazy
Good lesson to learn English
Very beneficial 5/5
Very beneficial and easy app to use.
Learning languages 5/5
I have been going through both Spanish and French and find that Rosetta Stone can be a great tool for learning either. The one down turn is that I believe it helps a lot to get a little bit of a foundation as to why somethings are done grammatically before you start with Rosetta Stone.
Comprehensive, minor UI issues 4/5
Very comprehensive in teaching new languages. The microphone doesn’t accept speech (yes it’s on in settings) and the UI can be a bit confusing between screens and accessing the menu.
Pronouncing is really fun and sexy
So far so good 5/5
Right now I’m on week two and surprised that I’m retaining information so quickly. I look forward to seeing my progress over the year
It starts off good 2/5
I’m giving only 2 stars because it starts off good then goes downhill. I’m learning Brazilian Portuguese. When I first started it was amazing. I was learning and it was fun. After about the first 4 lessons, it no longer translates anything to English for you to understand what you’re reading and hearing. In other words the long hold on the sentence that you do to see the translation. No longer happens after the first few lessons. I have to sit with my google translate page open as well. So I’m doing double the work. Not to mention google translate is not even 100% accurate in their translations. I contacted customer supports regarding this ridiculous issue. Which you would think wouldn’t even be an issue seeing as how it’s to teach you a new language. How can you learn something you don’t understand?
This needs to be changed otherwise it’s a complete waste of time, money and effort. It’s discouraged me from wanting to learn because it’s double the work now. I’ve honestly been using the free version of duolingo. It’s way more interactive and I am going to finish with my 6 months of Rosetta and move on to the paid version of duolingo..
This is the response I received from customer support:
Thank you for contacting Rosetta Stone. My apology on the delayed response.
As to the translation for your Portuguese program, the translation feature is only included until unit 4. We apologize for this inconvenience.
As to your suggestion, I will be passing on your feedback to considere the translation for the rest of the units to be integrated on the next update.
If there is anything else we can assist you with, you may reply directly to this email or initiate a chat online at our support portal.
Speech recognition software does not support AirPod and AirPod Pro 2/5
Would be nice to have an updated technology that would support the trend where Bluetooth devices are now the norm and when you travel - you could study languages while on a plan or on a train. Unfortunately, input devices are becoming the thing of the past. I would like to work with the Product Developement and Q&A teams to support the Apple AirPod families.
Rosetta Stone is okay. 3/5
By Wolf Larson
I like how they teach. It seems to work but it goes a little fast in some areas and on my iPad at least it doesn’t let me pause it or repeat it. Also sometimes the lessons just skip ahead and use words that were not previously taught and I have to look them up on Google translate. A little frustrating. But overall pretty good. I mean I am learning. I would also like to have printable lessons so I can write words and sentences down. I tend to learn faster that way.
Interesting way of getting you to learn
100% recomendable. 5/5

Excelente aplicación para aprender inglés y sólo toma 30 minutos diarios para estudiar y aprender un nuevo idioma.
By Mari J😁😁😁
Watch out for billing! If you want to do the three day subscription make sure you set a reminder in case it’s not for you! They will give you an option for a discounted monthly payment totaling $100+ for the entire year but they will surely charge you on the 4th day for the total year and NOT the monthly price even after choosing that. It is odd that a company that’s been around so long is trying to trick customers but Apple has great customer service and hopefully you’ll get a refund!
Someone should make them change this though, it’s unethical which made me really not to want to even use it. Also, this isn’t a learning tool in which you can just listen to while you’re cleaning! It’s very hands on.
Thank you 5/5
This has help me a lot.
Images too small 1/5
So disappointing. This app works with tiny images and you have to kind of figure out what you see. Exhausting and unnecessary. On top of that Rosetta Stone charged me twice. So if you consider getting this app get a magnifying glass and check your bank statement!
Learning English on Rosetta Stone 5/5

By pilar blanco 66
Si le dedicas un poco de Tiempo cada día aprendes mucho es fácil con roseta aprender un nuevo idioma a mi me a ayudado muchísimo
Good program but... 1/5
It is frustrating that after purchasing the Rosetta Stone Spanish program I then have spend more money in order to use the program on my mobile devices! That’s just rediculous Rosetta Stone.
Good app 5/5
By Et shadow
This is such a good app I am doing great on my Russian
There is no bugs and I am having so much fun
I’m from Haughville, dis a real review 5/5
Yeah, low key can understand and speak kinda good for just three weeks and like ten minutes a day, bro. Get Spanish, practice for a year, then get a job as a translator, once you speak the Mexican Spanish dialect. ITS LIT!!!
Not bad 4/5
Of the foreign language apps I have tried Rosetta Stone does a better job than most. Sometimes I wish there was a more explicit grammar explanation though. It’s great to intuit things yourself, but if you draw the wrong inference it would be great to understand explicitly what the grammatical particle’s function is. One of the languages I’m exploring is Japanese which is phonetically simple, but grammatically complex. Sometimes it’s hard to sus out the rule for where you use two or three markers with the same function. Is it male/female? Alive/not-alive? Also some verbs serve multiple functions and I have needed to search elsewhere to understand the why and how. So while the program does activate learning intuitively in an effective way it is not an all-in-one method to learn a foreign language. If you can get it on sale and have some time to devote to learning then it is a worthwhile investment.
Toooooooooo slow！ 2/5
As the title ,the app networks tooooooo slow !!!!
I hate Rosa stone 1/5
I hate Rosa stone because when ever it shows a voice question and I say the word it says I said the word wrong.
Yo I’m hacked or something 3/5
So like everytime i go away from the app for like 4-5 weeks it keeps signing out so i have to keep paying for lessons OVER AND OVER AGAIN
Thx for ur time i just had to let that out
Rosetta Stone is Hard 1/5
By Rosetta stone is HARD
When are I use Rosetta Stone I try to do the pronunciations it either doesn’t work or it says I’m wrong when I’m not please change this because it is not great
Excelente método de aprender inglés
Insanely good app for learning new language’s 5/5
This app helped me learn the basics in 30min it’s that simple when I saw French my brain automatically knew in seconds what the mean of each word meant
I can pronounce words as if I had stage 4 autism
Fun learning 5/5
I’m glad I started using Rosetta Stone. I’m learning while I have spare time at work. Thank you !
A good resource to begin learning a new language or practice what you already know.
I love this app, it’s amazing, I’m adapting to my new language very well. HIGH RECOMMENDED
How letters are pronounced, please 4/5
My wish would be that there was a short section re: the sounds the letters make, making it easier to remember words and phrases because you can more easily sound out a word.
Also, I’d appreciate some simple songs to learn that would help me remember simple grammar and common phrases.
Almost there 4/5
I’m actually studying Chinese in China but my school is opening late due to the coronavirus. In the meantime I’m using Rosetta Stone to continue my language learning. It’s very effective if you stick with it about an hour a day. My only complaint is when you do the speaking portion it does not give feedback on what part you said right and what part you said wrong. There is a green circle that gives you a visual on how accurate you are over all. However, when it comes to tonal languages, this is not very helpful because you are not able to address the problem but nonetheless able to move on because it’s close enough. This could lead you to introduce some one as your horse: “Zhè shì wǒ de mǎ” instead of your mother: “ Zhè shì wǒ de mā ma”. Or similarly my wife might say, “this is my lǎogong(eunuch).” when she wanted to say, “lǎogōng”（husband). It would be wonderful to have accurate feedback with correction ：“Zhè shì wǒ de (❌mǎ) (✅māma)。”
Love it!! 5/5

I LOVE Rosetta Stone 5/5
By Zoe-Zoe 💕
I LOVE Rosetta Stone. It is fun, entertaining, and interesting. I am currently in in Greek. It’s amazing. Nothing else to say! :)
The app’s mic section is flawed 1/5
No matter what I do, regardless of the area I’m whether it’s silent or not, the mic section still tells me I have poor auto quality or too loud of quality. I get kicked out the app all the time, and it’s not just me that’s having this issue.
THE BEST 5/5
This app has helped me with my English! So much more
Great app 5/5
Awesome for kids and adults!
Real fun 5/5
Although I can’t afford to buy a sub, I find this app to be really fun and helpful
The best app to learn another language. 5/5
is the best app to learn another language i am learning english very fast👌🏻.
Good app but needs directions and translations. Very engaging once you figure out what you are supposed to do.
Rosetta Stone - Spanish 5/5
This is the best app ever for learning languages. I bought all levels of French and then all Spanish. It is the gold standard.
Best language app yet 5/5
It teaches the way you learn, it doesn’t rely on you learning definitions by translation, and trying to memorize cards, it shows you objects, and people performing actions and shows you the words used to describe them or their actions. When your parents were teaching you they didn’t start off with root words and grammar they taught you this very same way and I must say it’s effective.
