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!

I am trying to learn Italian. It is something I have always wanted to do. After researching various language programs, I am completely happy with Rocket and am so glad I went with them. The other programs just don't offer the interaction like Rocket does. I always tell people about Rocket and how they will not be disappointed. Ciao, Don O

I like the format of the lessons and practices. I also like the ability to manipulate the dialogues to listen to any part again, as it is in the repetition that I can get the pronunciation and intonation to sound like the speaker. I also like the tips for the tourist that will be useful for my upcoming trip to Italy.

We've done a lot of research and I was looking for an opportunity to learn a little bit of Italian because we are going to be going to Italy next year, and I've looked at all the very high priced ones, all the way down to the very low cost tutorials on how to just speak the basic, not necessarily completely speak it fluently, but to understand it to the point where we can get around Italy, and understand certain words and certain phrases and things like that and be able to go into a coffee shop or, go into a market and be able to find the restroom or understand certain portions of the language.

We did some research and we started using the free version of the Rocket Italian or I should say the introduction to Rocket Italian and we at first took a couple of weeks to say "well is this what we want?" We also went to a local bookstore and purchased a lesson in Italian that was a very inexpensive lesson, it was $25 or something like that. And you get what you pay for, and it was just one of these things where it ran through all the language and the words and things like that, and really didn't have any kind of flow to it.

So we really couldn't memorize all that data. So we feel that the Rocket Italian program and course is something you can learn, something you can easily remember and catch on because of the way you are distributing the course, by way of Internet, by way of email, by way of the lessons and your hosts are incredible.

My wife is hooked on Rocket Italian, ok, she comes home every day and she goes through the lessons. And it's a great product, great value. Thank you very much.
