Fairfield Language Technology Rosetta Stone Latin American Spanish Level 1,2 & 3 Set with Audio Companion Homeschool Edition, Version 3

Rosetta Stone's interactive, immersion-method course has helped thousands of students to easily master a new language. Vivid imagery, native voices, and real-life exercises foster speaking, understanding, reading and writing intuitively from the first exercise to the last, while speech recognition technology provides instant feedback and improved pronunciation. Grammar and spelling components build comprehensive skills, while real-life simulated conversations test fluency.

Rosetta Stone students progress independently at their own pace. Parents can choose whether to use a preloaded lesson plan or full-year curriculum track, create their own lessons, or use an alternate program to focus on specific skills such as listening & speaking or reading & writing. Students are tested periodically, automatically advancing as their scores improve through reviewing weaker areas. At the completion of a unit, students complete a "Milestone Activity" in which they must speak into the microphone and participate in a conversation. The built-in reporting tool gives parents the ability to view, print and export student results, including completed exercises, current lesson progress, scores, and time spent learning.

Rosetta Stone also includes an audio companion! Reinforce your language skills anywhere, anytime with five audio activities per level that correspond with the computer lessons and provide additional conversation practice. At home or on the go, you can redeem the time by improving your pronunciation, vocabulary, phrases, speaking & conversation skills. MP3 Files.

Rosetta Stone Spanish (Latin American) Levels 1, 2, & 3, Homeschool Edition, Version 3, provides a foundation of key vocabulary and language skills, including directions, greetings, introductions, adjectives, time, emotion, works, interests, household items, animals, possessive pronouns, measurements, basic grammar, and more.

    My chidlren are loving the interaction with this computer program. My daughter was taking Spanish 1 in public school and kind of has a head start. She said that makes it easier. However; My son is doing well with it dispite his speech problem with the "r" sounds. It tends to reject some of his Spanish words. Not sure how to work around that, but over all I am pleased. It would be nicer to have a live person to talk to, but if you don't, this works well.

    This program is excellent. We use it for our homeschool curriculum and the kids, ages 6 to 12, race to get to the computer first. Even the 3 and 5 year old look over their shoulder and learn. !Me gusta mucho!

    This is a great product. My six kids 6-16 have no problem using it 20 minutes a day and usually do not complain. We have it registered on two computers (the limit) and 3 kids are logged in on one and 3 one the other. It is very important to do the workbook / writing part. I could not believe I spent $500 and had to PRINT OUT ALL my workbooks for 6 kids for 3 levels. I decided to print out one copy and have the kids just write all their answers in their own notebooks.

    Our family is learning together and enjoying it. Spanish is being learned and applied in a fun and challenging way. My husband and I never have to tell the kids to do their Spanish because they want to do it, and usually complete several lessons in a day. This was well worth the money!

    Love the product, hate the service. This is the homeschool version. I have 3 boys who are homeschooled. They each have a laptop. I assumed I could put it on each of their laptops. You can only put it on 2 computers. I called customer service, and they said "no" to putting it on a 3rd computer. I asked to speak to a supervisor, whose voicemail I got, and they NEVER called back. Very disappointing!
