‘We’re proud to strengthen our partnership with the Armed Forces and local, regional, national and international government organizations, standing by our commitment to language-learning success,’ said Pete Rumpel, vice president of institutional markets, Rosetta Stone. ‘The Armed Forces in particular have seen the tremendous value language learning provides. With these enhancements to our Enterprise government solution, we’re helping them and other government organizations deliver their mission to the absolute best of their abilities. Forces deploying to regions where these new languages are spoken have the opportunity to access a critical tool enabling them to better communicate in everyday interactions.’
Rosetta Stone Enterprise includes speech-recognition technology and guided pronunciation exercises that teach specific words, phrases, and constructions, helping to build confidence and perfecting speaking skills. Service members and security forces now have mission supporting content for reading, writing, pronunciation, listening, grammar, and vocabulary. The vocabulary includes modes of transportation, weapons and ammunition, directions, buildings and landmarks, natural features, basic medical terms and relevant cultural concepts. Additionally, the solution includes security mission supporting milestones at the completion of each unit to demonstrate skills mastered. The milestones form a continuing storyline that applies the language acquired throughout the learning experience to realistic situations. The learner plays the part of a security force member who must effectively engage in conversations in order to accomplish missions. For example, the learner must gather information from a victim in order to secure the scene and neutralize the opposition.
Many security organizations contribute to their mission success through the use of Rosetta Stone. The award-winning solution, adopted by the U.S. Army in 2005, has successfully delivered language training to its globally deployed force of 1.4 million soldiers and civilians. Rosetta Stone is also used by the U.S. Marine Corps, the Australian Defence Forces, the U.K. Metropolitan Police Service, the Colombian Military and other military, law enforcement and government organizations around the world. Rosetta Stone has quickly become a mission-critical tool for other law-enforcement and local, regional, national and international government organizations to better train and prepare their service members, security forces and employees to meet their mission requirements.
