  15. 15
    We're going to put in a first name, you should put your own information here, but honestly, you can put in whatever you want
    .
    Personally, I'm quite fond of the Rosetta Stone application, I've used it around the world, on a number of occasions, and I've never found it to be problematic, it doesn't necessarily always do what I want, but it does do a good job. So I am going to put in the password. Now it's all set up and ready to go.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Now we're going to go over here and tap one time on "sign up"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    I've already selected my country, the United States

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    So in my case I'm going to choose adult male
    .
    A quick tap there on the "adult male".

    And then I'm going to tap on "done"

  22. 22
    You can choose from a range of languages, French, Greek, Hebrew, Irish, Korean, Persian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, etc
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    I'm going to go ahead and choose "Russian"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    So to start us off, you can see my login is here
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    I've chosen Russian, and I'm on Unit 1, Unit 1 is a core lesson, it takes about 30 minutes
    .
    It's a simple basic lesson with some speech, some shapes, and it's going to add and build on my skills.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    I can always tap on the setting button, here is change language, switch learners, settings and log out

  28. 28
    Speech recognition is turned on, speech precision is turned on, this is something that works on your pronunciation
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  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 that 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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    Voice Type will also allow you to change your voice type
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  31. 31
    In terms of the course itself, you can focus the learning 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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  32. 32
    If you get tired of hearing the noises, you can disable this
    .
    Don't worry, you will still get a visual indication that you've successfully done something.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  33. 33
    As far as your learning focus is concerned, you can simply tap on that and you can choose which one you really feel you need to work the most
    .
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  34. 34
    Now lets go back, I'm tapping on settings
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  35. 35
    Now we are going to hit "done" since we are finished here
    .

    .

  37. 37
    Now its going to ask us for some audio setup
    .
    This audio setup is a fairly quick process, so its not time consuming. You can skip it, but I don't recommend it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  38. 38
    Lets make sure everything works, and you have your headphones plugged in and your microphone plugged in
    .
    If you recall, there was a video made on how to get your headphones all set up, and if you would like, you can simply click the link in this video and you can watch our article on how to get your headphones set up. Now our headphones are plugged in. Before you put the headphones in your ears, tap the setup button and carefully listen and hear how loud that test sound is.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  39. 39
    Press "continue"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  40. 40
    Okay, I am ready for my lesson
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  41. 41
    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. Then you can continue learning the language. You can also learn any number of other languages that will come in very handy 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 that will get you by.

Trying to use Rosetta Stone's Language app, but after installing, it gets stuck on "Loading your course"?

Tried to install on Moto G4 plus and got through to choosing install choose language. Chose Spanish (Spain), but then it just sits at "Loading your course" with the progress bar at 75%. It gets stuck between steps 23 and 24. I suspect the app has a bug that is triggered by my particular configuration of phone. I have tried: Uninstall and reinstall. Gets stuck at same place. Have changed screen timeout to 30 minutes to check that sleep isn't interfering with loading of course. I think it was caused by: App incompatible with my phone and Android operating system (6.0.1).
