Designing the most comprehensive language program involves proven and cost-effective technology. Rosetta Stone's Language Learning Suite for K-12 has interactive solutions that complement any language curriculum. Take a look at the infographic to discover how the rise of technology enhances instruction and encourages learning.
Technology plays an increasingly significant role in how we help language students develop the skills they need to be successful in today's competitive, global workplace. The benefits of integrating technology into the classroom can be seen throughout the learning experience.
In October 2013, Getting Smart partnered with Rosetta Stone to release a report called “The Next Generation of
World Language Learning.” The goal of the report was to create a vision for world language learning that acknowledged
its role in global competency and to frame the vision inside broader shifts to personalized learning and blended
instruction. Pointing to the potential of educational technology, we advocated for accessible, high-quality world
language instruction for all students—from elementary through high school.
Time and resource allocation for language programs
has been shrinking while the need for multilingualism
only grows. It is critical that our students remain
competitive on the global playing field. As the
benefits of a multilingual society become clearer,
parents insist that language learning is important for
their children’s future success.
However, our current education system still lacks the
resources to provide all children the opportunity to
develop the skills that will prepare them to succeed in
an interconnected world. Global competence and
language skills are no longer just nice to have—they
To keep a certain level of innovation in the classroom, teachers and schools
often turn to grant sources – especially for new technology. Finding the
right source and winning the grant can make your school’s language learning
dreams come true. But what are these sources and how do you gear up for
your grant application?
Technology can be used to improve educational outcomes for
ELLs and to promote school engagement for their families.
Technology tools can help accelerate language development
while minimizing the digital divide and the “learning gap” for
ELLs and their families.
English Language Learners (ELLs), are a vastly diverse group of approximately 5 million students who speak a primary language other than English and who are not yet proficient in English, which is a second or additional language for them. In order to keep up with their native English speaking peers, ELLs need more instructional time and specialized instruction, including specially designed material and state-of-the-art educational tools to accelerate their learning.
By 2030, nearly one in five members of the workforce will be an immigrant.
How can we ensure that this population, so vital to maintaining a strong competitive US workforce, will gain the English-language skills necessary for job success? Adult ELL programs in high school districts and community colleges offer the most effective learning paths for non-native English speakers seeking to level the playing field.
Foodservice managers who have lingering doubts about investing in on-site
language training should consider this:
By 2027, over one million new jobs are expected to be added to the restaurant
According to the National Restaurant Association, “All of this means that
foreign-born employees will be increasingly important to the restaurant
industry’s ability to expand and create jobs in the years ahead.”38
For foodservice operators and managers who want to plan for their future now,
the question is obvious: What’s the best way to address these issues?
Rosetta Stone can provide some answers.
Virtually all growth in the U.S. Labor force in the next four decades is expected to come from immigrants and their children. With this growth comes the need for manufacturers to enable their workforce to communicate more effectively. In order to increase productivity and reduce safety incidents, manufacturers are implementing English language learning programs.
In global, multicultural organizations, simply expecting all employees to speak one common language, such as English, marginalizes the potential impact of international talent and leaves monolingual staff ill-equipped to help the organization compete effectively in a globalized environment.
In an increasingly global economy, U.S. companies will perform better by hiring individuals who can communicate in foreign languages and helping current employees develop language skills. Forbes Insights, in conjunction with Rosetta Stone, surveyed more than 100 executives at large U.S. businesses (annual revenues of more than $500 million) and found that language barriers have a broad and pervasive impact on business operations. The survey found that foreign language skills will be even more vital in the future and that language abilities can help executives advance their careers, speed overseas expansion, and boost corporate—as well as personal—success.
The top clients of enterprise language learning companies consist of global companies that recognize the value of multilingual employees. While companies understand the necessity of language learning, there is room for improvement in incorporating language learning into corporate culture. This report looks at what companies are doing in the realm of language learning, to understand what best-in-class organizations are doing, and to provide businesses aspiring to be truly successful on a global stage with strategies for incorporating language learning into their business model.
Forbes Insights and Rosetta Stone surveyed 214 executives around the globe to find out if and how companies are training their employees to speak and work in more languages and what impact that training has on both the employees and the company. In addition, the narrative is rounded out with in-depth interviews with executives and experts.

A key element in the equation is communication, and if your employees can't communicate with their peers--or worse their customer--your business will fail. Explore this infographic to understand how Rosetta Stone Catalyst balances the equation.
Making your talent global-ready is key to your organization's future. A big part of global readiness lies in language and cultural skills. Knowledge of another language and culture builds bridges to customers and colleagues, and studies show that the ability to connect delivers measurable business impact. Building effective language and cultural learning programs is not difficult, but first HR must uncover the need - which often remains hidden from plain view.
