How does Time4Languages work?
Powered by Rosetta Stone®, a proven, award-winning language learning program, Time4Languages courses allow students to learn another language without memorization or even translation. Students learn in an easy to follow, self-paced method. In fact, the program teaches a new language in a way similar to how they learned their first language.
Time4Languages students are taught to speak and also think in the new language through a proven method that is effective, interactive, and fun! With visual as well as reading and writing elements built in, students will learn language basics, greeting and introductions, and other fundamentals in an immersive developmental sequence that consistently reviews the material. Students have the option to repeat activities as often as needed as well as skip around.
Lesson plans are available for parents, as well as reports that reflect dates, times, grades, and time spent on lessons.

The current introductory rate for one language is $59.95. This provides members access to all levels available within the online language learning course for six (6) consecutive months.
Time4Languages offers a 14-day guarantee in which members have the option to either select a different language or receive a full refund for the cost of the online language course.
What do I need to get started?
In order to get started, you must be an active Time4Learning member. Time4Languages courses allow students to build their pronunciation skills through audio queues and by speaking into a microphone. The interactive program is able to detect whether words, phrases and sentences are being pronounced correctly and thereby help students improve their phonemic skills in the language being learned. As such, although it’s not required, we highly suggest students use a USB headset with a microphone. Most laptops have built-in speakers and microphones, so be sure to check.
In addition, an Internet connection is required, as well as Adobe Flash Player 10.3 or higher.
