Rosetta Stone Launches "Futebol" Edition of Celebrated Travel App
Latest addition to mobile product suite will help Brazil-bound soccer
enthusiasts learn Portuguese
June 4, 2014, Arlington, VA - Rosetta Stone Inc. (NYSE:RST), the leading
provider of education technology and language-learning solutions, today
announced the release of a brand new mobile solution designed to give soccer
enthusiasts on-the-spot help with Portuguese as they turn their attention to
the upcoming tournament in Brazil. Rosetta Stone Travel Portuguese Futebol
Edition, the latest installment in the company's popular Travel series,
provides all-new lessons geared specifically to soccer, including key
vocabulary, phrases, and playful graphics. The free app is available for
immediate download in both iOS and Android ecosystems.
In addition to informative soccer-oriented content that will delight sports
fans, Rosetta Stone's Futebol edition features a localized language curriculum
built to help visitors navigate their way around various Brazilian cities
hosting tournament games. The app includes a rich assortment of travel and
culture resources for visitors, such as language guides to public
transportation, restaurants and hotels, tourist attractions, and hospitals.
"The eyes of the world are on Brazil right now, and sports fans from all over
the globe will soon be flocking there to watch one of the great international
sporting events of our time," said Nick Macey, Chief Product Officer at
Rosetta Stone. "So many people enjoy using our Rosetta Stone Travel apps, we
decided to develop a new edition with unique, localized content specifically
for soccer enthusiasts. Our Portuguese Futebol Edition is an essential app to
pack, especially as it doesn't require Wi-Fi or a wireless network once it's
downloaded. Not to mention, it's free!"
Rosetta Stone Travel Portuguese Futebol Edition is now available for native
English and German speakers. It can be downloaded all over the world, and will
enjoy a concentrated marketing push by Rosetta Stone in North America, Brazil,
Germany and the UK. Rosetta Stone Travel English was released in Brazil
earlier this year and has helped thousands of native Portuguese speakers
prepare for the impending arrival of tourists and sports enthusiasts from
America and around the world.
Like all of the apps in the Rosetta Stone Travel series, Rosetta Stone's new
Futebol edition features many of Rosetta Stone's proven-effective
language-learning tools, including an immersion-based introduction to
Portuguese and a finely tuned version of the company's proprietary
speech-recognition technology. The app teaches new words, guides
pronunciation, and uses smartly-sequenced images to help learners naturally
connect language, meaning and context. Rosetta Stone's intuitive methodology
stimulates the brain's natural language-learning ability and drives retention
more effectively than other products on the market. To date, Rosetta Stone
Travel apps have enjoyed nearly half a million downloads.
To download Rosetta Stone Travel Portuguese Futebol Edition, visit the App
Store and/or Google Play.
