ETSU reports user satisfaction with online language instruction offered in partnership with Rosetta Stone

In 2010, East Tennessee State University’s Honors College and Office of Professional Development began a program that offered online language-learning courses available in 25 languages through Rosetta Stone, a leading provider of technology-based, language-learning solutions.

A recent user satisfaction survey gave Rosetta Stone® Classroom high marks for being accessible, convenient and user-friendly. Of the ETSU faculty, staff, students and community members taking the online offering, 80 percent reported feeling more proficient in their chosen language after completing the course. Among the most popular of the 25 languages available are Italian, English, Japanese, Latin, French, Spanish and Greek.

The non-credit professional development instruction is available to the community and does not require formal admission to ETSU. For a registration fee of $50, users receive two months of independent study in one language, available at all proficiency levels.
