Rosetta Stone Arabic Level 1,2 & 3
The Rosetta Stone replicates the give and take of learning that occurs when the native language is acquired: words become associated with objects and ideas because they are introduced in a context where meaning is clear and reinforcement is immediate. The Rosetta Stone uses thousands of carefully selected pictures to create its context of meaning. The program elicits the student's response and gives instantaneous feedback, confirming the comprehension that has taken place. The program has been developed as a carefully sequenced, step by step process - as words build to phrases, sentences and dialogs, new vocabulary and syntax are progressively integrated in a systematic, natural flow. Users work exclusively in the target language because The Rosetta Stone depends on pictures to create its context of meaning. It uses the mind's innate ability to directly associate sound to meaning, without translation into the native language of the learner.
