Your Level

Rosetta Stone offers exercises at all levels, for both beginners and advanced students. The first time you open the Rosetta Stone application, a test will be started to assess your level. A programme with exercises will then be compiled for you based on your test results. However, the results of your level test merely serve as an indication, and you can change your level and programme whenever you want.


Once your level has been determined, you can indicate whether you want to focus on professional or everyday language situations. Various themes will then be covered within the chosen context. For example, if you choose a professional situation, you will learn to hold presentations, chair meetings and conduct telephone conversations. In the everyday situation various topics will be covered, such as introducing yourself, booking a holiday and ordering food.

All of the 4 language skills (speaking, listening, reading, writing) will be covered in the exercises. You will be sent a digital progress report every month.

Please note that the Language Centre provides you with an own version of Rosetta Stone.That is why the Rosetta Stone trial version may be different to ours.

Using a Rosetta Stone account besides a language course

A Rosetta Stone account can of course be used besides one of our language courses, with the advantage that the account can be used after the course to keep working on your language skills. Please note that a Rosetta Stone account is not compulsory for our language courses and will not be used by the teacher.
