Rosetta Stone buys language-learning firm
Dubai, March 4, 2014
Rosetta Stone, a leading provider of education technology solutions, has acquired the global language-learning company Tell Me More to strengthen its product and service offerings and expand geographically.
Rosetta Stone will showcase what is now the most comprehensive language-learning suite at this year’s Gulf Education Supplies and Solution (GESS) conference from March 4 to 6 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
The company’s combined offering now includes up to 2.000 hours of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based instructional content in the broadest number of languages and greatest depth of content on the market today.
With Tell Me More’s strong focus on developing adaptive solutions for specific academic needs in higher education and enterprise markets, the addition is an exceptional fit for Rosetta Stone.
Donavan Whyte, Rosetta Stone’s vice president, EMEA Enterprise & Education, said: “Rosetta Stone’s acquisition of Tell Me More is fantastic news for the region.”
“With governments in the Middle East looking to continue to provide quality education that’s measurable, our integrated technology will help students learn foreign languages anywhere and anytime. Being able to converse in multiple languages is an important and much needed skill, and it will help prepare learners of every age for their future endeavours in our globally interconnected world.”
Rosetta Stone will showcase a portfolio that offers scalable, online language learning solutions that can be incorporated into existing language classrooms or used as an individual learning programme at GESS.
Visitors can experience the programme’s unique approach in any of the 20+ available languages, and discover what educators have to say about Rosetta Stone by viewing video testimonials. To ensure a valuable experience for visitors from around the world, Rosetta Stone’s stand will be staffed by multilingual representatives who speak Arabic, English, French, and German. – TradeArabia News Service
