1 Gillian Lord University of Florida Is Rose%a Stone the future of language learning?
2 A(n important) side note The study reported here was conducted with Rose3a Stone s knowledge and technical support. They were not involved in the design, data collec<on or analysis. The Rose3a Stone licenses were purchased at regular price.
3 Why this study? Omnipresent and powerful marke9ng * makes Rose<a Stone En7cing to the average language learner Temp7ng to administrators Appealing to educators? The best known language program on the market * RoseBa Stone spent $98.5 million on adver7sing in 2011, up from $70.5 million in 2010, according to Kantar Media stone- ads- emphasize- fun- not- efficiency.html
4 What do reviews academic of reviews Rosetta Stone of say? Rosetta Stone say? Lafford, Lafford & Sykes (2010) Evaluate if programs provide the tools necessary for effec7ve language learning, based on features that research has shown to be important (interac7on, relevant contextualiza7on of language, etc.) these products do not incorporate a number of the [necessary] research- based insights (e.g., the need for culturally authen7c, task- based ac7vi7es) that informed SLA scholars might have given them. Santos (2011) Lack of context General inability to respond to spontaneous student speech What Rose3a Stone calls interac7on is a rather poor and limited version of what one would encounter in a real- life conversa7on DeWaard (2013) Not a viable replacement of current instruc7on at the postsecondary level Based on personal experience, professional reac7ons
5 What do empirical studies show? Vesselinov (2009) commissioned by RoseBa Stone; RS beginning users demonstrated increased knowledge of the language afer 55 hours of use Nielson (2011) self- study programs in workplace; some success but remarkable abri7on; lack of community (e.g., Rovai, 2002) Stevenson & Liu (2010) lack of ability to engage learners in true interac7on; users do not take advantage of Web 2.0 tools to network This study Phase 1 of analysis indicated that first- semester gains in some areas are comparable between RS users and a classroom control.

21 Other considerations (1) Language learning motivation All learners indicated that their primary mo7va7on was to fulfill their language requirement One third (4/12) reported that they chose Spanish, specifically, as a language that would be useful in their par7cular careers RS volunteers par7cipated out of curiosity or convenience, but shared same degree of language learning mo7va7on.
22 Motivation Classroom Group Group High school language Why Spanish? background Classroom No Spanish French 3 I am required to take a language for my major. Classroom No Spanish La7n 3 Language requirement and for myself since I feel Spanish is a good asset as a physician. Classroom No Spanish Fulfill [college requirement]. Classroom No Spanish La7n AP I am going to Panama on a service trip. I believe formal classes would help me gain a beber grasp of the language than picking it up on my own.
23 Motivation RS+C Group Group High school language Why Spanish? background Rose<a Stone + Class No Spanish I am taking Spanish because I feel like it will be beneficial later on in life. Rose<a Stone + Class No Spanish As a requirement and to benefit my future jobwise. Rose<a Stone + Class No Spanish French 2 I need two semesters of a foreign language to Rose<a Stone + Class No Spanish French 4 graduate. College requirement.
24 Motivation RS Group Group High school language background Why Spanish? Rose<a Stone No Spanish Foreign language requirement. Rose<a Stone Rose<a Stone Rose<a Stone No Spanish La7n 3 No Spanish French 2 No Spanish ASL 3 CLAS requirement Required for major. Spanish is useful in my state/needed FL requirement. Why volunteer for RS? Heard a lot of good things about RoseBa Stone so decided to try it. Can beber manage my 7me and schedule and move more at my own pace without dealing with class. Sounded beneficial. I was going to use my own to supplement educa7on anyway.
25 Other considerations (2) Time on task GROUP Comple9on Rate Average Score Total Course Usage (hours) Total Class Time (hours) Classroom 96.99% 90.77% RS+C 93.67% 98.63% RS 97.67% 95.88% NA
26 Other considerations (3) Attitude survey Few changes (pre- post) in any group Significant changes (RS+C, C) on item #3: I am enjoying my Spanish- learning experience this semester. Significant changes (RS) on item #11: Interac<ng via chat or telephone is comparable to interac<ng face- to- face. Changes (RS, RS+C) on item #19: I would prefer to learn a language on my own <me and at my own pace than in a group or classroom sehng.
27 Conclusions Across environments Comparable outcomes on some measures Different development of conversa7onal skills, discourse strategies Skep7cism is jus7fied More research (always!) needed Larger, more varied sample size Different proficiency levels Broader student group More sensi7ve/appropriate tes7ng measures Assess cultural awareness and competence
