How was the Customer Service?

Since starting the Rocket Italian course in January I have found it to be very educational, easy to use and especially practical since you can study at your own pace and schedule. It is very flexible but, at the same time, it remains a challenge which I find to be one of the best features. Recently with the introduction of the Rocket Scheduler and the Play It features the course has taken on a new dimension adding to the challenge of staying on a learning schedule (keeping the streak going daily) and practicing conversation with Alex and Maria. These two additional features are outstanding! Thanks to the Rocket Italian developers for these two added features...this course is well worth the price!

How was the Customer Service?

I just started using the Rocket Language Italian course and I am extremely pleased so far. I've tried Pimsleur in the past - which I enjoyed but it lacked the cultural and grammatical explanations necessary for successful learning. In addition, the combination of the audio lessons and testing pages makes Rocket Language the most complete language learning tool I've tried. In addition to the actual course the customer service is wonderful. Specifically, Aeysha was extremely helpful when I was ordering the all three courses and answered all of questions.

I got a subscription for Rocket Italian for Xmas 2012 and worked at it fairly consistently until we traveled to Italy in May. I was hesitant to speak Italian until we got into a situation where no-one spoke English and then surprised myself by being able to communicate with some farmers who sold us wine and olive oil. On another occasion I got so immersed in a conversation about some church architecture that I completely forgot myself and chatted for some time with a local man about 'domes'. My husband was totally impressed (he didn't know what we were talking about) and takes full credit for giving me the course as a gift.
