Rosetta Stone Wins Five Academics' Choice "Smart Media" Awards,
Asserts Leadership in Language, Literacy and Brain Fitness
Rosetta Stone Language-Learning Solutions, Lexia Reading Core5, and Fit Brains
Trainers for Adults and Kids honored for "Mind-Building
Excellence"

May 13, 2014, Arlington, VA - Rosetta Stone Inc. (NYSE:RST), the leading
provider of education technology and language-learning solutions, today
announced that five of its products have earned prestigious Academics' Choice
Smart Media Awards, a seal of educational quality bestowed on the best
educational media and toys on the market. Rosetta Course® for iOS, Rosetta
Stone® Kids Lingo Letter Sounds(TM), Fit Brains(TM) Trainer, Fit Brains
Sparky's Adventures(TM), and Lexia Reading® Core5® were all honored as part
of the Academics' Choice Spring 2014 awards program.

Already the preeminent brand in the language-learning space, Rosetta Stone
expanded its presence in the broader education technology industry in 2013
through its acquisitions of literacy company Lexia Learning,
language-learning community Livemocha®, and brain-training pioneer Vivity
Labs. The company also launched a new kids division, which introduced a set
of popular language and literacy apps for young children last year. The
transformation strategy has quickly established Rosetta Stone as a pacesetter
in both the Consumer and Enterprise&Education markets.

"It's gratifying to see the depth and breadth of Rosetta Stone's product
portfolio getting the recognition it deserves," said Nick Macey, Chief
Product Officer at Rosetta Stone. "The fact that our language, literacy and
brain fitness solutions are being called out by the education thought-leaders
at Academics' Choice means we're making an impact and helping people learn.
That's what we're all about at Rosetta Stone. We're delighted to receive
these awards, and even more excited about the innovative and effective
learning solutions our product team is developing for launch later this year
and next."

Rosetta Stone's five Academics' Choice Smart Media Awards come on the heels of
a victory by the Rosetta Stone® Kids Lingo Letter Sounds(TM) mobile app in
the annual iKids Awards, which recognizes the best digital media products and
platforms for children, as well as a Webby Award nomination in the Education
and Reference (Handheld Device) category. Earlier this year, the Rosetta
Stone TOTALe® PRO for Business solution received the Award of Excellence for
Translation&Language Service from Elearning! Magazine.

The Academics' Choice Advisory Board consists of leading thinkers and
graduates from Princeton, Harvard, George Washington University, and other
reputable educational institutions. Product-appropriate volunteer reviewers,
together with the Advisory Board, determine the winners. Entries are
separated by category (e.g., mobile app, toy, book, website, magazine, etc.),
subject area, and grade level, and then evaluated based on standardized
criteria rooted in constructivist learning theory. The full list of winners
is posted online atwww.AcademicsChoice.com.
