Rosetta Stone


All Boston University students are welcome to use Rosetta Stone at no additional charge in the Howard Thurman Center. Before the first time you use the software, you must first install a program. After the initial installation, you may use Rosetta Stone at the Thurman Center on your own computer*. Due to limited staffing, Rosetta Stone is offered only during the fall and spring semesters while classes are in session.

*Please note: our version of Rosetta Stone is NOT compatible with Mac OS X Lion or Mountain Lion.
