So I am going to put in the password. Now it's all set up and ready to go.

    OK now we're going to look for the voice type that best describes your voice.
    In most cases, you'll go with adult male or adult female, depending on your gender. Younger people will want to go with the child's voice. There are also some individuals that have higher or lower voices, and Rosetta Stone is a premium language learning application, so it does actually matter which of these you choose.

  29. 29
    It is important to pay attention to speech precision because there are certain words that sound very different when spoken by a native English speaker versus the native speaker of the root language, such as Russian.
    If you set the speech pronunciation tool to very difficult, you're not going to have a very rewarding experience so I recommend setting it to normal to below normal as it is here.

    In terms of the course itself, you can have the learning focus be on reading, writing and speaking, you can learn letters, characters, and sounds, and you can disable sounds for correct and incorrect answers if you prefer.

    I've chosen reading, writing, speaking and listening because that's important to me. It not important for me to do the extended perspective, because really, all I need to do is get around in a taxi, and make sure I order the hamburger that I like.

    We have our language lessons set up and it's easy to learn with Rosetta Stone.
    You'll go through this core lesson, and I recommend repeating it a couple times, and when you're done with that free lesson, if you feel that it warrants purchasing the program, its very easy to purchase the program, and you can continue learning the language. You can also learn any number of other languages. If you're planning a trip to Spain or Japan, or elsewhere. There's nothing wrong with brushing up on your languages a week or so before your vacation, and learning just some of the basics.
