Rosetta Stone Launches Speech-Enabled Language App for Businesses

Rosetta Stone, a provider of language-learning solutions, has expanded its portfolio with the introduction of Rosetta Stone Advanced English for Business.

Rosetta Stone Advanced English for Business offers a language-learning curriculum for companies operating in today's increasingly global economy. The new application uses Rosetta Stone's proprietary speech recognition technology like never before. It has been optimized to track and correct not just words and phrases, but full paragraphs of spoken content. The product's unique 'Reading Aloud' component provides learners with individualized feedback on pronunciation, pausing, and phrasing to give them confidence to speak in nearly any business setting. And live, one-on-one coaching sessions delivered by qualified, native-speaking tutors further augment the learning process.

"Most English language products on the market repurpose content and take a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching and learning that simply does not translate to the workplace," said Judy Verses, president of global enterprise and education at Rosetta Stone, in a statement. "Advanced English for Business features all-new content that's been specifically designed to develop communication skills used in everyday business settings. By combining a brand new, business-focused curriculum with world-class speech-recognition technology and live, one-on-one online sessions delivered through qualified, native English-speaking tutors, we've created one of the best business English solutions available today."

Rosetta Stone plans to expand on this solution by developing specialized content for specific industries, such as telecom, medical and manufacturing.
