May 13,  2014, Arlington,  VA -  Rosetta Stone  Inc. (NYSE:RST),  the  leading 
provider  of  education  technology  and  language-learning  solutions,  today 
announced that five of its products have earned prestigious Academics'  Choice 
Smart Media  Awards,  a seal  of  educational  quality bestowed  on  the  best 
educational media and  toys on  the market. Rosetta  Course® for  iOS,Rosetta 
Stone® Kids  Lingo  Letter  Sounds(TM),Fit  Brains(TM)  Trainer,  Fit  Brains 
Sparky's Adventures(TM), andLexia Reading® Core5®were all honored as part of
the Academics' Choice Spring 2014 awards program.

Already the preeminent  brand in  the language-learning  space, Rosetta  Stone 
expanded its presence  in the  broader education technology  industry in  2013 
through its acquisitions of literacy company Lexia Learning, language-learning
community Livemocha®, and brain-training pioneer Vivity Labs. The company also
launched a new kids division, which  introduced a set of popular language  and 
literacy apps for young  children last year.  The transformation strategy  has 
quickly established Rosetta  Stone as a  pacesetter in both  the Consumer  and 
Enterprise & Education markets.

"It's gratifying  to see  the depth  and breadth  of Rosetta  Stone's  product 
portfolio getting the recognition it deserves," said Nick Macey, Chief Product
Officer at Rosetta  Stone. "The  fact that  our language,  literacy and  brain 
fitness solutions are  being called  out by the  education thought-leaders  at 
Academics' Choice  means we're  making  an impact  and helping  people  learn. 
That's what we're all about at Rosetta Stone. We're delighted to receive these
awards, and  even more  excited about  the innovative  and effective  learning 
solutions our product team is developing for launch later this year and next."

Rosetta Stone's five Academics' Choice Smart Media Awards come on the heels of
a victory by the Rosetta Stone® Kids Lingo Letter Sounds(TM) mobile app in the
annual iKids  Awards, which  recognizes the  best digital  media products  and 
platforms for children, as well as  a Webby Award nomination in the  Education 
and Reference (Handheld Device) category. Earlier this year, the Rosetta Stone
TOTALe® PRO  for  Business  solution  received the  Award  of  Excellence  for 
Translation & Language Service fromElearning!Magazine.

The  Academics'  Choice  Advisory  Board  consists  of  leading  thinkers  and 
graduates from  Princeton, Harvard,  George Washington  University, and  other 
reputable educational institutions.  Product-appropriate volunteer  reviewers, 
together with the Advisory Board, determine the winners. Entries are separated
by category (e.g., mobile  app, toy, book,  website, magazine, etc.),  subject 
area, and  grade level,  and  then evaluated  based on  standardized  criteria 
rooted in constructivist learning theory. The  full list of winners is  posted
