Rosetta Stone Latin Contest!! :)

From JenIg's blog:

Rosetta Stone is the fastest way to learn a language and has been the #1 foreign language curriculum among homeschoolers for a while — and you can WIN the *all new* version 3 Rosetta Stone Homeschool LATIN program… FOR FREE! This is the first year you can get Latin in the brand new Version III update.

This is a $259 program (and believe me it’s worth every penny!)
This is a computer based curriculum and Rosetta Stone will also include a headset with microphone, and a supplementary “Audio Companion” CD so you can practice lessons in the car, on the go, or where-ever! Students participate in life-like conversations and actually produce language to advance through the program. Rosetta Stone incorporates listening, reading, grammar, vocabulary and writing along with speaking and pronunciation lessons. For parents, the new Parent Administrative Tools are integrated into the program to allow parents to easily enroll up to ten students in any of 12 predetermined lesson plans, monitor student progress, grade completed work (the program grades the work automatically as the students progress- I love that!), and you can view and print reports for transcripts. Homeschooling a lot of kids at your house? This program is designed to enroll and track up to ten students (five users on two computers) and will work for nearly all ages — from beginning readers up to college students.

To win this most excellent Latin program copy these paragraphs and post them in (or as) your next blog post, and/OR link to the contest from your facebook page and/OR email the information to your homeschool support group – Then go to the original page and leave a comment saying that you’ve posted about, or have linked to, the contest. Please make sure the link works to get back to the original contest page when you post. And good luck!


We are planning on doing Rosetta Stone Russian this year, but Latin would be pretty cool too. Ellie did Latin for Children Book A this year and didn't enjoy it much. Anything that she can do on the computer always seems like more "fun" than work to her. :)

How fabulous!! We are planning on doing Rosetta Stone Spanish...but my kid's heritage is Russian-Polish so maybe we should be hanging out with you.... wink, wink. Maybe we'll tag that one on too...And then Chinese sounds good too. We have a ton of Chinese friends. And.... LOL

Our relatives are still in Belarus, Poland, & Russia. You know how politics can move a country's people around. Belarus = White Russia. And I definitely want my kids to be able to communicate with their relatives.
