Rosetta StoneRosetta Stone, an interactive, multi-media, language instruction software program, is now available for use in the Paul V. Galvin Library to all students, faculty and staff of IIT. It’s simple, just stop by the Circulation Desk on the lower level and ask for a Rosetta Stone laptop, plus 1 of the 5 languages we have available; English, Chinese, Spanish, Arabic or French. The laptop and language CD is available for use only in the library for 2 hours at a time. To take full advantage and optimize the features of the Rosetta Stone Language instruction method, you will need to bring along your own headset/microphone.

Rosetta Stone mimics the natural process for language acquisition that occurs and is taken for granted in childhood. Through interactive, digital technology Rosetta Stone attempts to replicate and activate that process for all learners. Rosetta Stone immerses you in the target language with images, text, and voices of native speakers. As a result, you will learn to speak, read and write the new language quickly, naturally and easily. For more information, visit the language resources page.

The library is able to make the Rosetta Stone software and equipment available to the IIT community with the generous support from several anonymous donors.
