Speak English

While standard Chinese holds the honor of the language with the most native speakers in the world, English is the most used official language, and it’s also the most widely spoken second language. About twenty percent of the Earth’s population, about 1.5 billion people, speaks English as their main or second language. So learning English puts you on a path to know the most valued language across the globe.

Some of the many reasons people learn to speak English are:

  • It’s the most widely spoken language in the world
  • It’s the language of the Internet
  • Knowing English makes travel easier
  • Educational opportunities

In order to speak English confidently in conversation, you’ll need to go beyond vocabulary and memorization. Learning how to speak English in context with an immersive approach, and practicing your pronunciation, is the best way to learn English.

English is commonly renowned for its extensive number of words compared to many other world languages, and has a vocabulary larger than German, Dutch, or the members of the Romance languages. However, if you can learn the most common thousand English words , you will be able to comprehend close to 88% of English in conversation.

At Rosetta Stone, we are primed and committed to helping you learn to speak English.

Learn To Speak English With Rosetta Stone

Research points to success at learning a language as a matter of practice and contextualizing your learning. This is exactly how Rosetta Stone's Dynamic Immersion® methodology works. Our approach effectively teaches you how to use English in everyday life, readying you for success and confidence when using your new language.

Having a language learning program that understands the importance of practice and pronunciation is a key component.

In addition, Rosetta Stone has an award-winning mobile app which is included with your subscription, and makes fitting in your daily practice accessible and convenient.

Immediate feedback on your pronunciation efforts is critical to develop the skills to accurately speak English.

I've been using Rosetta Stone for years to gain basic competency in multiple languages including German, French, Italian, and recently Chinese and Russian. Starts with the very basics teaching basic vocabulary and grammar without any memorization. I've even impressed some locals in my travels with pronunciation and fluency. This is an excellent place to start if interested in starting to learn a new language or brushing up on one learned years ago.

I am trying out Rosetta Stone, to see if it will help out with the correct grammar and conversation (as well as learning how to read and write the language). Within a week, I can already master the sentence structure and start learning the grammar with particles. The local community is so excited to see that I am starting to learn their language. Out of all the language learning tools out there, I 100% recommend Rosetta Stone!

I've tried other language learning software but Rosetta Stone is much more challenging and professional. I don't have to worry about earning points and following the leader board. I'm trying out the ninety day trial to learn some Russian and I will pay for the privilege once I reach the end of the trial.
