Rosetta Stone has announced that they will be offering three months of language learning to students high school and below due to school closures caused by COVID-19. Beginning March 20th, parents can sign up without strings attached at https://www.rosettastone.com/freeforstudents/.
“Rosetta Stone is here to support parents and students in this unprecedented time of school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic — with no strings attached and no pressure to purchase in the future. Many of us at Rosetta Stone are parents too and we understand the struggle of simultaneously homeschooling our kids while trying to work from home ourselves — all day, every day for weeks on end. Language learning exposes children to new cultures and opens their minds to new experiences, and can be a welcome respite for parents looking for something new to do with their children during this time. We want every child to have the opportunity to learn a language while at home, and for parents to take comfort in a free resource that we are happy to make available to students globally,” said Matt Hulett, Rosetta Stone President.
Parents can claim separate subscriptions for each child so that they can learn different languages. The service is available for any mobile device and web. Online and offline availability. Signing up is easy and only requires parent's name, parent's email, password, and child's school name. They do not ask for credit card information so there is no obligation to continue the service or have to worry about canceling on time.
