Note:You will be asked for your Username (email address), Password and Language. The language you choose must be the language you wish to learn, not the language you already speak. After launching Rosetta Stone it asks you to choose your language again. This must match the first language. After that you can choose your course level and enter into the program. Some other things to note about Rosetta Stone: Rosetta Stone requires Adobe Flash Player to run. It also requires a headset with a microphone since most of the tutorials use voice recognition.
