Learning a language can be an experience that transforms your life. Over 25 years of language learning experience has taught Rosetta Stone one thing: everyone has the ability to learn to read, write, and speak a language with confidence. Try the Rosetta Stone app yourself for free.
Many online language learning apps will promise that you can learn a language in just a few minutes a dayHowever, there is a significant difference between memorizing vocabulary lists and speaking a language with confidence. Learning a language is about more than just the words. One of the mistakes new language learners make is treating language as an object or an end goal instead of as an experience.
Ditch the books, translator, and dictionary, and surround yourself with a language whenever, wherever with the Rosetta Stone mobile app.

I prefer RS to DuoLingo
I signed up for DuoLingo in 2016, but quit a year later after their switch to their current crown system. Recently, I picked it up again, but DuoLingo does not work for me anymore. If anything, it bores me and it’s more of a child’s game than a learning tool. It’s addictive for the sake of competing with others rather than engaging to learn. I always knew about Rosetta Stone, but never tried it because of the price. I wanted something harder than DuoLingo, so after reading reviews - good and bad - a trial, I took a steep plunge. I purchased their lifetime subscription while it was on sale for $200.
So far, I feel it’s been worth it. Rosetta Stone isn’t a game in my eyes. It isn’t cute nor is it addicting. To me, those are good things. I’m using it because I want to learn, not to keep a streak up, collect hearts and gems, or reach the top of the leaderboard. I sincerely find RS to be challenging, especially when it comes to the conversation exercises. I hate them - I hate speaking because I’m awkward and clumsy - but they work. Rosetta Stone taught me more in a week than DuoLingo taught me in the one year I used it. At level fourteen in DuoLingo, the program is just now trying to teach me numbers one through ten. That’s something to give to a kindergartner.
To each their own. My only gripe is the iOS app doesn’t sync as it should. I have to uninstall and reinstall it for it to sync if I redo a lesson. I sincerely hope that issue is fixed someday soon.
Rosetta Stone is tops!
I wanted to wait several months before writing a review. I have now been studying Hebrew for six months with Rosetta Stone. I bought the year-long program, and I am on track for a one-year completion. I think you get a lot out of it if you put a lot into it. I study every day. The program is amazing! I had tried another program that was teaching me to transliterate into English first. It was slow and I wasn’t learning much because my eyes always went to the English transliteration rather than the Hebrew letters. I also tried a sample lesson with another company that used only audio as the “best way” to learn a language. I realized I am a visual learner, so just listening to audio did not work for me. But now with Rosetta Stone, I am reading the words in the Hebrew alphabet and understanding what I am reading. I awake in the middle of the night with Hebrew words and phrases running through my mind. The pictures are enjoyable, and help me to understand words and phrases. My vocabulary is amazing! I think my pronunciation is getting better and better as well. It is such a natural and fun way of learning. Right now, I am studying the past tense, and I thought it would be difficult, but I am understanding it just fine. When I get through with Hebrew, I may learn another language through Rosetta Stone just for fun!
Great app but needs some fixes.
The app’s content is great. I am really happy with how it works and how easy it is to learn. The only problem with it is that the app has a few bugs that need to be fixed. Sometimes randomly when you’re asked to speak into the mic, for some reason it doesn’t work unless you exit the unit or sometimes even the app. Also, sometimes when you click on a section in a unit, it shows a loading screen that never goes away unless you refresh the app. Also, sometimes when you finish a section in a unit, it takes you back to the beginning of the unit instead of the next section that you’re up to (this one isn’t such a big bug). My only other problem with the app is that it is sometimes way too slow. It’s not a bug that makes it slow, it is the way the app was made. I personally tend to be a fast learner and it is very frustrating when a section says that it takes 10 minutes when I could finish it in 3 minutes if it didn’t take so long to process your answers and go to the next slide. The animation of matching the answer to the correct box is unnecessary and I think there should be an option to turn off the animation and replace it with a simple and fast check mark or x. Again, I think the app is great and I am only criticizing it because I really enjoy using this app and I use it quite frequently.
