Improving English Listening and Speaking Skills: A Rosetta Stone® Study

In a study conducted by Rosetta Stone and the University of Maryland, extra speaking practice paid off for English language learners. The study investigated the effect of Rosetta Stone Foundations software on Arizona English Language Learner Assessment (AZELLA) Listening and Speaking scores1 of students in grades 2–12 in a large urban school district.

Key findings:

  • Students in grades 2–12 who used Rosetta Stone Foundations demonstrated a 26-point gain in Speaking scores and a 13-point gain in Listening scores over the respective scores of non-users.
  • Increased usage of Rosetta Stone software was associated with greater gains in year-over-year AZELLA scores.

Review the full study results in our white paper, and find out how Rosetta Stone software could help English language learners in your school district.

1AZELLA Reading and Writing scores were not analyzed because Reading and Writing tests are not comparable from year to year for the data set used.
