Rosetta Stone Create A Smaller World - German

Germany is known for having particularly passionate soccer fans. (Or should we call them, “futball” fans?) Their passion grows exponentially during the World Cup. Which was evident when Rosetta Stone sent Colm, an American soccer player from NYU, to Berlin to watch the German vs U.S. World Cup game. Equipped with Rosetta Stone German, Colm quickly learned how to navigate the waters as a U.S. fan in a sea of German hooligans.
