Rosetta Stone is offering students free access to its program for 3 months. Since Texas schools have decided to close for the rest of the school year, plenty of parents are searching for fun and engaging ways to keep kids educated during summer and the downtime. 3 free months of Rosetta Stone will ensure that kids stay mentally fit over the summer. Rosetta Stone is a pioneer in language education and has stepped up and offered 3 months of free lessons to students.
The company’s website announces, “To keep [students] minds sharp and give you a much-needed break, we’re offering free access to Rosetta Stone for Students for the next 3 months,”
Rosetta Stone’s free 3-month subscription gives students the opportunity to learn a new language through immersion and get immediate feedback on their pronunciation as well as ongoing progress reports. Rosetta Stone recommends that children have at least basic reading and writing skills in their native language (this is usually developed around age 7) to participate in their program.
Matt Hulett, Rosetta Stone President explains that “Rosetta Stone is here to support parents and students in this unprecedented time of school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic — with no strings attached and no pressure to purchase in the future. Many of us at Rosetta Stone are parents too and we understand the struggle of simultaneously homeschooling our kids while trying to work from home ourselves — all day, every day for weeks on end,”
Hulett also explains the benefits of using downtime to learn a new language.
“Language learning exposes children to new cultures and opens their minds to new experiences, and can be a welcome respite for parents looking for something new to do with their children during this time. We want every child to have the opportunity to learn a language while at home, and for parents to take comfort in a free resource that we are happy to make available to students globally,” Hulett said.
