  • You do not have to be enrolled in a language course to use Rosetta Stone.  As a PVCC student, feel free to use it for your own benefit!
  • To change the language you want to learn, go back to the sign-in screen.  Enter your email address and password again, but select a different language.  Click Sign-In and "Launch Rosetta Stone Foundations."  You will be directed into the new language.  
  • To change the specific course (Extended, Reading and Writing Focus, Standard, etc.), click the Gear icon in the top right corner.  Then click the "Course" tab and "Change your course settings."
