Free-Rosetta-Stone-Online-DemoWe are providing temporary access to Rosetta Stone on-line for a limited trial that will end on June 7.  During the trial you can access all of Rosetta Stone’s content, with lessons in languages literally from A-V. However, before you can access the languages and lessons for the first time, you will need to create a free personal account, while you are on campus. Sign up for your free account and access the trial. Remember, you must be on campus to register and set up your account for the first time.

Rosetta Stone is an innovative, multi-media, on-line language instruction program that uses words, pictures, speaking, and listening to teach a new language. We encourage you to give it a try; don’t hesitate because you are thinking of the old-fashioned verb conjugation tables or rote memorization used in the past. Rosetta Stone is an intuitive way to learn a new language and you’ll be so pleased with your very first efforts, that we encourage you to try other languages during the trial.

Remember Rosetta Stone will only be available until June 7, but we need your feedback—hey, that’s the whole purpose of a trial. Try it and then tell us what you think of Rosetta Stone on this form. Thank you for giving us your feedback. It is an important part of the trial, as we want to assess both the product’s ease and patron demand.

Galvin Library currently offers online access to learning languages through Mango, which teaches through conversational phrases and frequently used concepts. The library also has almost a dozen Rosetta Stone languages on CD that must be used with its software inside the library.

Languages offered during the Rosetta online trial are: Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), Dari, Dutch, English (American), English (British), Filipino (Tagalog), French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Pashto, Persian (Farsi), Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Spanish (Latin America), Spanish (Spain), Swahili, Swedish, Turkish, Urdu, Vietnamese


  1. I was very hesitant about the impact Rosetta Stone could actually have on the learning skills for an individual. I have taken foreign language classes, the tutorials and trials offered by Rosetta Stone are comparable, if not better in some ways. Highly recommend.


  2. Cool! Our library has more and more resources!
