Rosetta Stone

Before graduating high school you are supposed to have at least two foreign language credits. Since our school doesn’t have a teacher that teaches foreign languages we have a program called Rosetta Stone. Rosetta Stone is an interactive online language course. You get scenarios for everything. Although it’s not as in depth as having a teacher stand in front of you and teach, you still learn. Unlike most schools who only offer Spanish or French our school offers many options. We have Spanish and French but we also have Russian, Korean, Hebrew and German. As I look around at all the computers and see the words on the screen I am amazed in the fact that people are actually doing this. To my right junior Morgan Huffman is taking Russian. As I laugh at the way she says things I am amazed by her attitude to never give up. I tried speaking those words and failed miserably. Morgan says “It is very difficult to speak the words and comprehend what they are saying.” Junior Adam Clayton who is taking Spanish said “I have learned a lot more than I thought I would by working on the computer with Rosetta Stone.” All in all I think Rosetta Stone has been a good option, now the choices some people make on the language they take is a little crazy, but they are accomplishing what they need to do with a good attitude! ? It will be so worth it in the long run!
