Speaking a Language is Learning a Language

My students need a Rosetta Stone Version 3 French Level 1, 2 & 3 Set with Audio Companion.

I teach French 1 and 2 honors, my students are in grades 9-12. My school is in a high-need immigrant community.

My students do not have the software necessary to practice speaking French. French is studied by some of the highest achieving students at my school, but we are unable to provide them with an adequate method of practicing the key oral and aural elements of the language. My students’ passion to learn French is exhibited by their enthusiasm for our “French only” classroom. These same students are part of our elite cohort of honors students, who, based on their test scores and grades, are most likely to attend four year universities. The ability to hear their voice and models of correct French in a variety of situations will be invaluable in preparing students for college level French. French see some of the highest achieving students in my school but we are unable to provide them with an adequate way to practice what is learned in class. My students are very passionate about French. The honors class has taken the initiative to speak only French in class but the lack of the ability to hear their own voice along with the correct pronunciation.

Rosetta Stone has been proven to be invaluable part of language acquisition. This software would provide my students with the ability to become more confidant speakers through natural language. This software also provides variety of authentic speakers to students that I cannot as one person. Students will also progress beyond the French 2 honors level to be more successful in higher level French classes which could lead to AP French.

Your help will ensure that my students will be able to progress beyond basic language learning into a world of fluency in another culture and language. The Rosetta Stone software will allow my students to become not only fluent in reading and writing but also speaking, the most vital form of communication. Such an opportunity will help my students develop a valued skill – multilingualism – which will lead to more opportunities in both college and the professional world. Through the use of the Rosetta Stone, students will gain confidence in their speaking skills, hone their reading, listening, and writing skills and thus be more successful French students.
