I've travelled all over the world, and I’ve found that speaking the language is a great way to meet new people and discover new things. I really want to make your French learning a rewarding and fun experience!

I have been off and on in my learning, but it's nice to know that Rocket French is always available! So, even though I haven't been able to take classes at the local college, I can still work on learning French. Also, I haven't checked out the news in awhile, but I just read about the iOS app for my iPhone! Yay!!

Hello, my name is Veronica James and this is my testimonial. I did purchase Rocket French last fall and it was something I did as I was recovering from an injury. I had broken my ankle and had surgery. I was house-bound for about five months, so I decided to bone up on my French.

After looking at several different online and computer courses I chose Rocket French because of the freshness of the approach, the amount of audio files and the interactive games. It just seemed like a really good value and a lot of fun and I found that was very true. I really enjoy using Rocket French; it's challenging, it's fun and it makes sense. I would definitely recommend Rocket French to anyone who is trying to learn French or re-learn French in my case.

I had studied it at high school for several years. Being that I planned to move to Canada at some point, I think it would be beneficial for me in my career pursuits as well as in my work as a performing artist. French is a beautiful language and Rocket French makes it easy and fun to learn. The graphics are great and they are updated; they are modern as well as traditional. The audio files are at a good speed, so you can follow along and repeat and really know what you are learning. I think the biggest benefit I have gained from the Rocket French course is a new understanding of the beauty of the French language and how it enriches me as a person. Anyone who purchases Rocket French should have a really great experience learning a new language, or brushing up on an old language with a new twist. I'm having a great time doing it, and really having a sense of achievement being able to study at my own pace and learn. So thank you so much Rocket French. Merci beaucoup.
