Learn Languages for Free with Rosetta Stone

Are you planning an international trip? Do you wish you’d stuck with the language you were learning in high school – or maybe your student is in a language learning class? Maybe you want to study your ancestral language – or just try something new?

Now you can learn 30 different languages, such as Spanish, Japanese, or Indonesian, using Rosetta Stone at Cecil County Public Library. The service works on personal computers as well as your smartphone, tablet, or Kindle Fire. A full list of available languages can be found at http://www.rosettastone.com/publicsector/languages — look under Rosetta Stone Language Lessons Version 3.

If you choose to use a portable device for Rosetta Stone, you should first download the app and then go to Cecil County Public Library’s Rosetta Stone page to sign up, choose a language, and get started.

To learn a different language, log out of the app and return to CCPL’s Rosetta Stone page to make your choice and sign in again. The app remembers where you left off in each language, so you can return to a previous course of study.

To try Rosetta Stone on your personal computer, go directly to CCPL’s Rosetta Stone page.

For more help, try our Niche Academy tutorial on Rosetta Stone (below) or call your favorite branch.


What language would you like to learn?
