Hallo, my name’s Paul Weber, I’m the host of Rocket German.

Hi, I’m from Munich in Germany, which means German is my native language. That also means I know how difficult it can be to learn a new language, because I’ve done it myself.

Together with my English speaking colleague, Nik, I want to help you to speak and understand Italian, and cut your learning time in half, with my Rocket German online course.

I have vivid memories of how difficult it was for me to learn English, how boring and dry it was. That's why my mission is to make learning German much easier for you! I really want to make your German learning experience rewarding and fun!

Before subscribing to Rocket German, I had tried for years, off and on, to learn German. I read primers, readers, phrase books, listened to CDs and even took the first two levels of Rosette Stone, but I never really got much past the basics. I could read some, but couldn't understand it when it was spoken, and had difficulty communicating in anything except very simple phrases.

Now, with Rocket, I can feel myself finally rising above that basic plateau. I suppose one could say it was my fault for not working harder and that would be true. I didn't work hard enough. I realize now I am working much harder than previously, but the thing is, with Rocket it doesn't seem like such hard work.

The thing about Rocket, I think, that makes it so effective is that it is structured in a multi dimensional way that keeps your interest and provides the tools and exercises to accommodate various learning styles. Some times my brain hurts and I have to take a break for a day (just like working out at the gym), but I never get bored. Besides the lessons, I find that I enjoy the forum. That actually surprised me because I'm not a social networking sort of guy. However, it is a good way to ask specific questions of a language expert, share problems with other students, and meet some interesting people. I think Rocket is a great course and a great buy.

I'm impressed by the clever and practical approach in the Rocket German audio lessons. The "Nik-Paul" conversations are full of humor that makes it more than palatable to repeat the lesson as often I need to. The suggestions for using new words and phrases in situations beyond the ones specifically addressed in the lesson help expand my horizons and enhance the value of each lesson. The written materials complement the conversations and are organized into manageable chunks. Between those and the chances to self-test online with comprehension and pronunciation, the course goes the extra mile in encouraging me to push myself.

So far so good. Very thorough and comprehensive, allowing you to hear, repeat, record, and compare your pronunciation with that of a native. Love the program! Looking forward to learning cultural aspects of the German language, as well as becoming that much more conversant with each segment.

I was calling to let you guys know that my son who is nine years old desperately wanted to learn German, and so we ordered the Rocket German, and he is flying along with this language program, and it's an excellent program. I would recommend it to anyone, especially the kids.

He has uploaded it into his Media Player, and he listens to it constantly, all of the lessons, and he is speaking German, and I think we ordered this program about two weeks ago, and he is doing an excellent job. So, thanks a lot guys.
