Rosetta Stone Library Solution available beginning mid-October at Mission Viejo Library

In an effort to provide patrons with the most innovative and convenient services possible, the Mission Viejo Library is switching its online language learning program to Rosetta Stone Library Solution, recognized as a leader in technology-based language learning.

Rosetta Stone Library Solution offers libraries and their patrons the proven immersion method that more than 22,000 schools and 12,000 businesses have trusted for the last two decades. The award-winning interactive approach has been used by millions of learners around the world and will soon be accessible in the library – or anywhere, anytime.

The program will take the place of Mango, which will be phased out by the end of this week. Rosetta Stone Library Solution will be online mid-October.

The library is excited to offer this resource that includes 30 languages to meet a range of cultural interests. Learning is structured around core lessons to build reading, writing, speaking and listening skills and includes focused activities to refine grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and more.

Patrons can also take advantage of available mobile apps that enable learners to reinforce their language learning wherever they may be. Stay tuned to http://cmvl.org for updates and more information.

To access Rosetta Stone, go to the library website, click on "Research and Reading Resources" in the left-hand menu, then "Electronic Resources." Scroll down to "Languages" and you'll see the link for Rosetta Stone. Don't hesitate to call the library for assistance at 949-830-7100 and select option 2.

Chinese (Mandarin) would be more useful than Vietnamese; unless you have family that are Vietnamese, of course. Mandarin Chinese is a UN Language and in terms of the number of speakers, see this URL for a comparison https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_languages_by_total_number_of_speakers
