HARRISONBURG, Va., Dec. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- For the perfect last-minute gift, consider giving your loved one the gift of confidence that comes with truly knowing a new language.

Developed by Fairfield Language Technologies, Rosetta Stone distinguishes itself from other language-learning material by helping users develop everyday proficiency naturally, the same way people learn their first language as children -- by linking new language directly with real-world objects and events.

"Our Dynamic Immersion(TM) method uses thousands of real-life color images to convey the meaning of each spoken and written phrase in the program," says Steve Hertzenberg, vice president of sales and marketing. "Its carefully sequenced structure, use of native speakers and instantaneous feedback make it easy for anyone to learn a new language."

Rosetta Stone uses native-speaker voices, written texts and real-life pictures to teach all key language skills: listening, speaking, writing and reading. Rosetta Stone users can enter at any skill level and proceed at their own pace on CD-ROM or online within the comfort of their own homes.

Rosetta Stone offers instruction in the following languages: Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), Danish, Dutch, English (U.K.), English (U.S.), French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Pashto, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Spanish (Latin America), Spanish (Spain), Swahili, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Vietnamese and Welsh.

Rosetta Stone interactive software is used by thousands of schools, government agencies, Fortune 500 corporations, libraries and other educational institutions and has millions of learners in more than 150 countries. Users include the U.S. State Department, the U.S. military, and more than 10,000 schools and colleges. The program is also used by NASA and has traveled to the International Space Station to help U.S. and Russian astronauts communicate.
 Each course is available on CD-ROM or online and includes:

 -- A curriculum with 12 activities in each of 92 lessons (Level 1)
 -- Previews, comprehensive exercises and testing for each lesson
 -- Guided exercises that introduce activities in each lesson
 -- A curriculum text and 45-page user's guide
 -- Many languages also offer 118 additional lessons (Level 2)
