Most popular non-European languages




The most popular non-European languages being actively learnt by Rosetta Stone customers are Korean, Japanese and Arabic. Since the launch of Rosetta Stone Unlimited (which allows customers to learn all our 24 languages), these languages have grown immensely in popularity. Comparing activity rates from 2019 for the same period in 2020 we can see that our customers are more active overall, but that activity rates for these three languages have more than tripled as customers take advantage of access to all the languages we teach. It’s great that people are exploring languages that they might not have bought directly as their ‘first choice language’ when we only sold single language licences.

This app is amazing I love it! I got this app to learn Japanese but now I’m learning Japanese and Irish at the same time! And I’m gonna start learning other different languages.

Novelty: Less usual motivations for learning a language

  • “I want to impress my friends with a language they have never heard” – How about trying Korean? A relative rarity in the Western world, it has been growing in popularity with the rise of Korean boy band BTS. It is also a very important language of business in the far East making Korean both exotic and useful!
  • “I love Lord of the Dance and have fallen in love with Ireland.” – Yes, Rosetta Stone also teaches Gaelic! Not an easy language, but one that is great fun to get some familiarity with and is interesting to discover.
  • “I want to help refugees from war-torn lands.” Rosetta Stone offers tuition in some of the most common languages of the recent waves of migration. These include Persian and Arabic.
  • “I want to learn the language of the future and stay ahead of global trends.” For the business-minded a bit of Mandarin Chinese is a smart way to get ahead and future-proof your career.
  • “I’m obsessed with anime cartoons/all things Japanese.” Yes, Rosetta Stone also teaches Japanese! The immersion method is particularly effective at teaching a language that is so different. Learn Japanese with Rosetta Stone and you really will have to get to grips with new sights and sounds, right from the start.
