               New Research Report Finds that Language Training
               Improves Job Performance, Boosts Employee Morale
   86% of workers report that adoption of Rosetta Stone language-learning
                  solutions drives results in the workplace

June 23, 2014,  Arlington, VA  - Rosetta  Stone Inc.  (NYSE:RST), the  leading 
provider  of  education  technology  and  language-learning  solutions,  today 
announced the results  of a  new survey of  a cross-section  of the  company's 
12,000 global enterprise  customers. The Rosetta  Stone Business Employee  Use 
Insights  Survey--released  during  this  week's  Society  of  Human  Resource 
Management 2014 Annual Conference & Exposition in Orlando, Florida--finds that
both  employees  and  companies  benefit  enormously  from  language  training 
programs in the workplace.

The Rosetta Stone Business Employee Use  Insights Survey reveals that nine  in 
10 employees believe language  training is relevant to  their job duties,  and 
86% report a direct, positive impact on their job performance. As illustrated
in the  charts  below, surveyed  employees  also  report an  increase  in  job 
satisfaction  and  loyalty  due  to  their  companies'  investment  in   their 
professional development. Based on  the results of  the survey, the  languages 
studied most frequently in the marketplace are English, Spanish, Japanese, and
German.

Language Training Improves Employee Performance

Results of the survey  show that employees find  that learning a new  language 
improves their  performance  at  work  and helps  them  serve  customers  more 
effectively. Eight in 10 employees report that gaining proficiency in a second
language makes them more productive overall, and increases their confidence in
communicating with those necessary to perform their job functions.

Additionally, 72  percent  of employees  report  that  as a  result  of  their 
training with Rosetta Stone,  they are able to  accomplish tasks in less  time 
than it took them before they started training. Fully two-thirds of  employees 
say they are capable  of serving a  larger range of  customers because of  the 
Rosetta Stone program.

Language Training Boosts Morale and Improves Retention

Those surveyed feel their company has  taken an interest in their  development 
by providing language training,  which has in turn  improved their future  job 
prospects, and given them an opportunity for career advancement.

As a result, 89 percent of  workers feel more positively toward their  current 
employer and 84 percent feel engaged at work. Importantly, over 70 percent  of 
respondents say they are more likely to  stay with their employer as a  result 
of being  provided  an opportunity  to  build lifelong  language  skills  with 
Rosetta Stone.

Rosetta Stone will  participate in  the Society of  Human Resource  Management 
2014 Annual Conference &  Exposition on June 22-25  in Orlando, where it  will 
introduce the  Rosetta Stone^®  Language Learning  Suite, a  new portfolio  of 
products built specifically  for enterprise  clients. Company  representatives 
will be on hand to share information  about all of its Enterprise &  Education 
solutions at booth #1147.

The  Rosetta  Stone^®  Language  Learning  Suite  provides  complete  language 
solutions for beginner,  intermediate, and advanced  learners in both  English 
and World Languages, administrator tools  for tracking and reporting, as  well 
as full client implementation and learner support services. For over 20 years,
