In a Rosetta Stone exercise, the student pairs a text passage, sound, image, or video with one of four potential matches.

For example, the software show the student four photographs. A native speaker makes a statement that describes one of the photographs, and the statement is printed on the screen; the student chooses the photograph that the speaker described. In another variation, the student completes a textual description of a photograph.

In writing exercises, the software provides an on-screen keyboard to make it easier to type characters that are not in the Latin alphabet.

Grammar lessons cover grammatical tense and grammatical mood.

If the student has a microphone, the software can attempt to evaluate word pronunciation.

Each unit concludes with a review of the previous lessons in the unit.


The program immediately informs whether the answer is right or wrong. Through the Preferences menu, the student can choose from various marks and sound for feedback. The program scores the answers on a scale of 0 to 100. The score is saved; it remains visible during practice exercises, but not during tests. The student scores four points for answering correctly on the first attempt; three points for the second attempt; two points for the third attempt; and one point for choosing the only remaining option.
