Why Rosetta Stone

There is a significant difference between memorizing vocabulary lists and speaking a language with confidence. Learning a language is about more than just the words. Ditch the books, translator, and dictionary, and surround yourself with a language whenever, wherever with the Rosetta Stone mobile app.

Rosetta Stone is Free for anyone who has a
New Brunswick Public Library Card

The card is free, does not expire, and can be used at any public library across the province. 

The online registration service is only available to residents of the Province of New Brunswick.  A resident (for this purpose) is someone who lives and resides in NB.
