Rosetta Stone Thai (Language Software)
Rosetta Stone Thai Introduction:
Do you want to learn a new language with the award-winning method used by the U.S. State Department to train diplomats?
The Rosetta Stone approach, proven effective by NASA astronauts, Peace Corps volunteers, and millions of students worldwide,
teaches new languages faster and easier than ever before.
We all learn our childhood language by associating new words and phrases with
the world around us. The Rosetta Stone method replicates this process by
presenting vivid, real-life images to convey the meaning of each new phrase.
Instead of translating, memorizing, and studying rules of grammar, you actually
learn to think in the new language. Vocabulary and grammar are integrated
systematically, leading to everyday proficiency.
This comprehensive program provides up to 550 hours of mastery instruction in
listening comprehension, reading, writing, and speaking. Systematic structure
teaches vocabulary and grammar naturally, without lists or drills. Previews,
exercises, and tests accompany every lesson, and there are automated tutorials
throughout the program. Graphical speech recognition displays your voiceprint
and compares it with the native speaker to help improve your pronunciation.

This is the way to learn a new language...
I live in Thailand and have tried various phrase books, language media,
as well as an English-Thai dictionary (which i still use for reference) and
feel the need to give RossettaStone its just due. After reading the other
reviews i could not understand what the problem was. RosettaStone does not
use translation (which is the worst way to learn a new language!)but instead
uses a "mothers tongue" or acquisition approach. This approach may take some
getting used to but once the learner feels comfortable using the
RosettaStone method one should see progress rather quickly. Yes Thai
language is very different from English such as different sentence
structures, lack of tenses, adjectives following a noun instead of
preceeding a noun, a whole set of personal pronouns that change depending on
the sex of the speaker, and then a whole seperate set for royalty, etc, etc.
but this should not discourage a person from learning Thai. I will agree
that to shell out the money for RossetaStone may not be practical if one is
just visiting Thailand on holiday, a phrase book would meet this need just
fine since you probably wont get the tones right anyway but hey its Thailand
and Thais are very tolerant. If you are planning on spending more than just
a holiday,( like if you live in Thailand)then RossettaStone can be of
benefit as well as taking a formal Thai language course. It's also important
to keep in mind that the RosettaStone programs are not designed to learn a
new language in a week which would be totally unrealistic but more like
several months to a year.

This is genius

Even though i've only gotten to start a few lessons now, I think that
this program is exactly what i've needed to learn Thai. Starting without
explicit instructions, each lesson takes you through learning Thai in the
way you learn your first language - pictures, sound, repetition, and
associating words together through context instead of pre-determined
vocabulary lists. The way they designed the program is genius! I highly
recommend this instead of over-used language tapes and workbooks.
Rosetta Stone Thai Level I, Personal Edition comes complete with an illustrated User's
Guide and a Curriculum Text book.
