In our 5th-8th grades we will being fully committed to using Rosetta Stone. Rosetta Stone is the world’s leading online language learning provider. This unique opportunity we have invested in will develop your child’s cultural and linguistic understanding. Rosetta Stone Foreign Language based learning provides two essential needs for our students as we look to see them prepared for 21st century:

1.    Students receive practice in “Distance Learning.” They get to experience learning using an internet computer program.

2.    The second is to immerse the students in a foreign language and culture to be able to have at minimal a grasp of the language before entering high school.

Rosetta Stone technology simulates the way people learn their native language with pictures and sounds in context, and with no translation. Students learn a new language “naturally” and at their own pace!​​

 

The technology includes instant speech feedback guides for correcting pronunciation. In addition, Rosetta Stone provides teacher resources as aids to classroom instruction.

Each student and teacher will have access to a dedicated Rosetta Stone website just for St. Francis de Sales Catholic Academy.
