2011 August, 17
Rosetta Stone Inc. (NYSE:RST), a leading provider of technology-based language-learning solutions, is pleased to announce the release of Rosetta Stone® Version 4 TOTALe™ advanced content in Chinese (Mandarin) and Russian. Building on the existing content in these languages, the release of Levels 4 and 5 in Chinese (Mandarin) and Russian showcases the changing need of global customers.
The advanced content in both languages will allow learners to delve into extended, more complex conversations, nuanced grammar and expanded vocabulary to prepare them for everyday interactions. Whether learners are using Rosetta Stone software solutions for business or pleasure, the advanced levels are crucial for improving their command of the language.
"The language demands of the global economy are always evolving," said Gustaf Nordbäck, Country Manager, UK, Rosetta Stone. "With the introduction of more in-depth study of Russian and Mandarin, Rosetta Stone maintains its position at the forefront of the evolution of language needs and encourages communication among the citizens of the world", added Nordbäck.
The advanced levels of Chinese (Mandarin) and Russian will allow the company to offer customers an enhanced TOTALe version of these languages.
