This is so fun! I work full time so I don't have time to take a language class. I can do Rocket French during lunch. I love that I can download the audio lessons and listen to them while I work out. There are so many ways to learn the same thing over again that it really makes retaining the information easy.

I enjoy working at my own pace. The flexibility of the program is very good. My favorite part is being able to listen and then repeat as many times as I want. The only thing I dislike is having to click accept to record each new phrase or word.

I love Rocket French from the first day! It is the only software available that has all the features I look for in a language learning software. It has MP3 files containing the audio sounds of many French words, phrases, and sentences. These are my favorite feature because these audio's pronounce first in English, then a pause, followed by the same phrase in French, then another pause, wrapping up with the same phrase repeated in French. The lovely voice is so pleasant to the ear that it is itself a splendid motivation for me to learn.

Other great features about the product are the comprehensive coverage of the language across all the chapters, cute pictures, and fun quizzes. Amazingly, I am learning French and loving every minute of it. My wish is that one day very soon I will be able to converse fluently with my neighbors and friends in Montreal. My husband and I bought a condominium there a couple of years ago and we love to visit every chance we get. I highly recommend this product without any reservation whatsoever! I fail to see any down side to it at all.

How was the Customer Service?

I would benefit from hearing some additional native voices, both male and female, because sometimes Marie-Claire's pronunciation or pitch or tone eludes my tired old ears. More people pronouncing the same words and phrases might help me "average out" my enunciation. Otherwise I am satisfied with Rocket-French.

I've been using Rocket languages for about a year now, and am very satisfied.

The points system is a great motivator. (Let's be honest, we're all a bit competitive).

The "hear it, say it" functions really let's you test yourself and I think recently added "write it" completes it as a language course.

There has been some spelling mistakes throughout the course, but customer service listens and fixes anything brought to their attention.

I recently put the course (or my abilities) to the ultimate test, by traveling to a couple french speaking regions, and I surprised myself at how well it went.

Kudos to the developers of rocketfrench.
