All About Extended Learning in Foundations
When games and chat are removed, we will also remove the Play and Talk buttons from the program.
To access Games and Stories, select Extended Learning at the top left of your Rosetta Stone program (note: Extended Learning may not be available depending on the type of program your school or organization chose).
|Completed Unit & Lesson||Unlocked Game|
|Unit 1, Lesson 1||MemGo!, Picari, Prospero (for select languages only)|
|Unit 1, Lesson 2||Buzz Bingo (Lesson 4 for some languages)|
|Unit 1, Lesson 1-4||Super Bubble Mania|
After the initial content is unlocked for each game, the content is updated as you progress through your language training. For example, you will see different content when you play MemGo once you are in Level 1 Unit 2 than you did when you played it in Level 1 Unit 1.
*Note: games require Flash and are only available in the web version of Foundations, not on the app.
Stories are just that, a story that is written and narrated by native speakers of the language you're learning. You can listen and read along at the same time, or record yourself reading the story and listen back to see how you did. Stories offer broader exposure to your new language in a wide range of entertaining pieces—read poetry, take a tour of a city, or hear about a family's work on their farm.
Where to Find Stories
Stories can be accessed on the web version of Foundations or through the Learn Languages mobile app.

How to Use Stories
Select a Story you find interesting that is at your skill level based on the unit(s) you have completed in Lessons. Once in the Story, you will be asked to set up your headset, and then you can select from three modes: Read, Listen, and Record.
Unlike games, stories are accessible immediately upon signing into your account and do not require Flash.
