Local Rosetta Stone employees have been laid off, according to Brian Shull, city economic development director. "We've not heard numbers yet, so we're still waiting for additional information from the company," Shull said Wednesday. In March, North Carolina-based digital language learning company IXL Learning announced it had acquired Rosetta Stone. In a Wednesday email, Eric Bates, an IXL spokesperson, declined to provide a timeline for when layoffs will occur or say how many people will lose their jobs and how many workers will remain employed in Harrisonburg once the changes are in place.
