Have your sights set on mastering a foreign language, but don’t have the time or cash to go abroad for a few months? Rosetta Stone has you covered. Winner of PC Magazine’s Editor’s Choice Award for Best Language-Learning Software, Rosetta Stone combines speech recognition tech with an immersive curriculum to help you become bi-, tri-, or even multilingual in no time at all.

Offering instruction in English, Spanish, German, Chinese (Mandarin), French, and Italian, Rosetta Stone’s language box sets utilize language-enhancing games, accent analyzing software, and even mobile learning apps to help you better read, write, speak, and understand the language of your choice. You’ll master basic conversational skills, like shopping and ordering a taxi. Then, you’ll move on to advanced topics as you learn how to discuss pop culture, share your opinions, and converse like a natural.

Each Rosetta Stone Language Box set offers instruction in one language of your choice and comes with a physical CD and a digital copy of the software, so you can listen to it on all your devices. Get yours on sale for $161 AUD [$120 USD] — that’s nearly 40 percent off its $266 AUD retail price.
