Rosetta Stone is the worlds #1 language-learning software. Our comprehensive foreign language program provides language learning for individuals and language learning for organizations.
The software uses images, text, sound, and video to teach words and grammar by spaced repetition, without translation.
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.

GermanPod101.com offers a unique learning experience that cannot be found in conventional classrooms. In addition to offering lessons that can be completed on your own time, we approve all of the content we release through a certified German teacher. Here are just a few of the revolutionary advantages of our method:
10,000 sentences is an app that will help you learn new words in your target languages. You will be presented with a series of sentences where you need to guess the order of words. If your guess is correct, the app will find a new (and slightly more complex) sentence.
The application currently have 24 languages (see below for the list). Each language is available in two "directions". For example "French for English speakers" and "English for French speakers". More languages will be added in future.
If you want to check the translations for words, make sure you have Google Translate installed.
The application uses "text-to-speach" (TTS), but not all languages are available on all Android phones. Some languages have also commercial TTS engines available on Google Play.
As you progress with new sentences, you can create "annotations" on words you don't know. Annotations can be anything, but the best usage is to use them to create your own dictionary. More than one word can have the same annotation (so, for example, one verb in different tenses will have one translation/annotation).
The application is free and open source. All the sentences are taken from the Tatoeba dataset (licensed under CC-BY 2.0).

Kiwix enables you to have the whole Wikipedia at hand wherever you go! On a boat, in the middle of nowhere or in Jail, Kiwix gives you access to the whole human knowledge. You don't need Internet, everything is stored on your computer, USB flash drive or DVD!
Kiwix is an offline reader for web content. It's a software especially intended to make Wikipedia available without using Internet, but it is potentially suitable for all HTML contents. Kiwix supports the ZIM format, a highly compressed open format with additional meta-data.
Kiwix is mostly installed in schools, universities and libraries which can't afford a broadband Internet access. It's so much faster than the Internet and also can be used by many institutions to save bandwidth and reader's time. But many people use Kiwix for their own personal purpose. That's the case, for example, of persons suffering from censorship or prisoners.
Kiwix is really easy to use. It provides a range of features which make the usage comfortable:
- Full text search engine
- Bookmarks & Notes
- HTTP server
- PDF/HTML export
- User interface in more than 80 languages
- Tabs navigation
- Integrated content manager and downloader
Kiwix is a pretty small and efficient software. You can perfectly use it with small or old computers. It runs on a big range of operating systems, on Android and on the three main PC operating systems: Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OSX and GNU/Linux distributions.
Zim brings the concept of a wiki to your desktop. Store information, link pages and edit with WYSISYG markup or directly typing some lightweight markup syntax and see it previewed as-you-type. Creating a new page is easy by either clicking on the "Create new note" button, by linking to a non-existing page or by writing a CamelCase name in any note. Pages are stored in a folder structure, like in an outliner, in plain text format with lightweight markup, and can have attachments (stored along the notes).
This tool can be used to keep track of TODO lists or ideas, to take notes during a meeting, to draft any other kind of text (blog entries, important mails, etc.) or to write long texts like lab research notebooks thank's to the headers structure and the table of content navigation.
Zim handles several types of formatting markup, like headings, bullet lists, checkbox, tables and of course bold, italic and highlighted. This markup is saved as a hybrid wiki/markdown text so you can easily edit it with other editors. Because of the autosave feature you can switch between pages and follow links or even close the software anytime while editing without worries. The interface also provides multi-document tabs, and it remembers the cursor position in all notes for quick resuming in your note taking endeavors.
