Rosetta Stone-(cont.)

In terms of the technical aspects, RS was fairly simple to set up, all we needed was a windows machine to run as the "server". However, unlike Version 2, which gave you the option to install the language files to each local client machine, version 3 requires the language files to stay on the server which produces a small lag when several people are trying to start the program up. Otherwise, version 3 is much better than 2.

The students have really been enjoying using the program and they seem to be learning from it. i even found one student using it during a study hall. The program works on reading and speaking skills, requiring the student to read sentences and words and pronounce them correctly. It seems to be a great way to supplement the Hebrew curriculum.
