Rosetta Stone seems to be transitioning to a subscription model, and if you buy 24 months of access today, you can bundle in an Echo Dot for not much extra money at all.
The new Rosetta Stone package lets you choose one of 24 different languages, and access all of Rosetta Stone’s lessons and content for that language for the next two years, including phrase books, stories, accent lessons, and more. Unlike some previous iterations of Rosetta Stone, this isn’t tied to a single device; you can access it on pretty much anything that has an internet connection.
And now, you can even use the new Rosetta Stone Alexa skill to help you learn a language with an Echo device, no computer required. That would be a great use for your new Echo Dot while you’re chopping vegetables in the kitchen, or getting ready for bed.
