Have you ever wanted to learn another language? Or perhaps brush up a language that you studied long ago? Rosetta Stone has long been considered the “gold standard” in personal language learning software. The software aims to create an immersive experience using various media. A reviewer in the Wall Street Journal called it “the next best thing to living in a country.”
Because the product was designed for the direct consumer market, libraries haven’t had a way to offer it—until now. That has changed with the acquisition of Rosetta Stone by EBSCO. EBSCO is offering us a product featuring unlimited simultaneous user access to the full programs for thirty languages. We currently have trial access to the software for 30 days. We will purchase this product if there is sufficient community interest. We can’t reveal the trial access in this post, since it is restricted to members of our community. But if you are a member of the PA community, just contact us for the login information.
