Immersive means you’llactually learn the language.
From lesson one, the language you're learning is the only one you'll hear and use. It’s called interactive immersion and it creates a language-learning experience you won't forget.
The vision is to provide a "best in class"learning experience.
This was the main reason why Rosetta Stone® decided to partner with Five. With almost a decade of experience, in building digital products with a strong emphasis on mobile, and a proven track record having developed Rosetta Stone®'s brain training app Fit Brains®, working together on their language program was the logical next step.
Using a mobile first approach allowed us to start with the core experience, and build outwards to allow our users an always-on experience regardless of their choice of platform.
Show, don’t tell
When we onboard users, it’s important to convey the core principles of the learning pedagogy. Rosetta Stone® teaches without any instruction in your native language. Visual learning is a key part of the experience.
With every new exercise, you’ll speak more and more. Syllable by syllable, word by word, sentence by sentence. The Speech Recognition Engine will follow your every word, guide you, and help you improve. You’ll speak like a native in no time.
Building the App
Start with a Skeleton
Replacing the old application means starting where the previous has left - replicating core functionality from authentication, lessons rendering, speech recognition and all the way to progress tracking. That was the role of the Skeleton app that created a foundation on which the rest of the new application was built.
Take it Offline
Adding an offline mode made it possible for users to download more than 140 hours of learning material, and take the app on the road with them.
