Rosetta Stone Introduces Farsi (Persian) Language Learning Programme

Interactive Software Programme is Fastest Way to Learn the Farsi Language

30th November 2005 — As interest in learning Middle Eastern languages grows, Rosetta Stone, provider of e-learning and CD-ROM based language learning, has expanded its range of courses to include Farsi (Persian). Rosetta Stone provides the fastest, most effective way to learn a new language – anytime, anywhere. The award-winning, interactive programmes create an immersive environment in which users can quickly learn a new language the same way they learned their first language: by linking new words with real-world objects and events. With the addition of Farsi (Persian), Rosetta Stone expands its programmes to include 29 different languages used throughout the world.

James Pitman, Managing Director at Rosetta Stone, said: “We are seeing an increased demand for learning Middle Eastern languages. Our Arabic and Pashto programmes are highly popular among government workers, military personnel, educational institutions, relief organisations, private contractors and individuals. We are pleased to be able to add Farsi to our list of Middle Eastern language offerings.”

An estimated 30 million people speak Farsi, also known as Persian. Today, Farsi is spoken primarily in Iran and Afghanistan, but historically it was spoken more widely in an area ranging from the Middle East to India. Within the UK, the desire to learn about new cultures is also growing in importance.

Unlike traditional grammar-translation instruction, Rosetta Stone’s Dynamic Immersion™ method uses thousands of real-life colour images to convey the meaning of each spoken and written phrase in the programme. The programme’s carefully sequenced structure, use of native speakers and instantaneous feedback teach new languages without memorisation, translation or tedious grammar drills. All programmes come with an unconditional, six-month money-back guarantee.

In addition to Farsi (Persian), Rosetta Stone is offered in Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), Danish, Dutch, English (U.K.), English (U.S.), French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Pashto, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Spanish (Latin America), Spanish (Spain), Swahili, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Vietnamese and Welsh.
