Activities of Rosetta Stone German Online Subscription
In the Rosetta Stone German online language-learning solution you constantly interact with your virtual teacher. The interface provides screens where you have to select the missing image piece to match the text, and prompts where a meaning derived from an image must be associated with words, e.g. Was is das? (What is that?) Das ist der Arm eines Mädchens (This is the arm of a girl).
A green check always means you have made the right selection whereas an orange X indicates that you were not concentrating, or got the answer wrong. Another type of exercise is syllable pronunciation, where you repeat after the speaker, and finally say the whole word; Bü-cher, Bücher (books).
Speech analysis works similarly, where you listen to the perfect, native German speaker and then produce a word or sentence with the option to view your emphasis and pitch graphs . Then there is speech practice where you speak into the headset the correct expression, and speech production where you produce a new word or sentence from displayed clues.
Writing activities include read-hear-type or hear-only exercises where you can make use of your own keyboard, or the interface’s mouse keyboard if that is more convenient. The Rosetta Stone online course contains multiple choice tasks, of course :-) as well as lessons where singular, plural, articles, masculine, feminine and neuter forms of German nouns are waiting for you.
