Complete German homeschool language curriculum

Rosetta Stone Homeschool features a foreign language curriculum specially designed to provide homeschool students with a rich, fully interactive and engaging language-learning experience, while giving parents the tools and resources needed to manage student progress without extensive planning or supervision.

Rosetta Stone Homeschool is self-paced and designed to make it easy for parents to offer language learning even if they don't understand the language their students are studying. Students are instantly captivated by Rosetta Stone so they stay engaged. Plus, with positive reinforcement and quick results, their language-learning confidence soars!

Audio Companion™ CDs

Included in this set are the Rosetta Stone Audio Companion™ mp3 files on CD! After your students complete a computer lesson using Rosetta Stone, they can reinforce the skills they've learned by using Audio Companion on an mp3 player, or burn the files onto CDs in a format that will play on a conventional audio CD player.

A solid foundation for fluency

Rosetta Stone provides up to three levels of instruction, beginning with a foundation of listening comprehension, speaking, reading and writing. With Rosetta Stone, your children will do more than learn about a language. They'll learn to use it.

    Our two youngest children, ages July 10, 2015
    Reviewer: Andrea G.  
    Our two youngest children, ages seven and nine just completed Rosetta Stone Version 3 Homeschool Edition German level 1. It is a great program for homeschooling and since we decided to continue with it, we ordered levels 1-5. The presentation of the material is logical and the lessons are short and generally fun for the kids (grammar can be a challenge). The nice thing about Rosetta Stone is you can turn off the features you don't use. The voice recognition has a difficult time with kids, so I don't have them speak into the computer, I have them tell me the words. With older children I imagine this would not be an issue. I highly recommend this program.

    Worth the price April 11, 2011
    Reviewer: Jennifer Schneider from Rhinelander, WI United States  
    We have used this product for 4 years and it is still my NUMBER ONE curriculum recommendation for learning a language. My husband and I both speak fluent German but have failed to pass it on to our kids the easy way - in every day conversation. We have screened a lot of programs and curriculum, and have not seen a better, all-encompassing foreign language program.  Version 3 is also a big improvement over version 2 because of the audio and speaking additions.  I do caution people before investing so much, it may be best if you, or someone you know, are at least familiar with the language (not fluent), and can help out if/when needed. I like the way the program is set up that they may not go to the next lesson until they have adequately passed the current lesson.  The set-up took longer than I expected (but I am terrible with computer things), but the Rosetta Stone help desk was quick, thorough, and helpful. I know I will continue to recommend this product for a long time!

    A very wise purchase! October 23, 2008
    Reviewer: Angela S. from Atwater, OH  
    The Rosetta Stone German course "works" quoting my 14 year son; he saves this course for last each day because he enjoys it the most.  He also applies what he has been learning, too much sometimes :), in everyday conversation!  This was a very wise purchase!
