I have tried Fluenz which is great, but who has time to complete an hour or two long lesson every day?? With Rocket Spanish you determine what you need every day. Great!

You should try as many resources as possible when learning a new language. Prior to Rocket Languages, I consulted a textbook, Rosetta Stone software, and Pimsleur audio lessons. The Rocket Languages program is the most balanced approach, when it comes to learning styles.

Textbook
+ Index and dictionary
+ Many opportunities for explanation and background information
- Very linear
- Not immersive

Rosetta Stone
+ The most vocabulary
+ Visual reinforcement through images
+ Very slick interface
- No English
- No explanations
- Images are bad at expressing multiple ideas
- Images are bad at expressing time and use of tenses
- The grading scale is unhelpful

Audible
+ Efficient explanations
+ Easy progression in small steps
+ Lots of repetition
- The reading lessons are tacked on at the end
- Poor exposure to the written word
- Poor explanation of tenses

Rocket Languages
+ Listening, Reading, and Speaking functionality is strongly integrated
+ High quality audio
+ PDF handouts and downloads make it easy to learn away from the computer
+ Curriculum offers multiple definitions, when appropriate
- The progression is a little fast
- Needs more repetition within the audio lessons
- Maybe pair the audio lessons with a slideshow for visual reinforcement?

Rocket Languages is the best value, when compared to other learning solutions. I will go to Rocket Languages first when I try my next language.

My name is Joyce Ralph and I'm not the most self-disciplined student but Rocket French has put together a language-learning package that even I can follow. It is very thorough, yet fun.

I appreciate the fact that I can refer back to key elements of basic French, such as tips on pronunciation, the conjugation of frequently used verbs and so forth, quickly and easily.

The explanations are complete, the illustrations are cute and the testing at the end of the lessons is helpful without being intimidating. The native speakers have pleasant voices and enunciate clearly. The newsletters were interesting and taught me useful phrases for relevant situations. The flashcards are a good tool to test myself.

I have visited Paris twice now and have fallen in love with the people and their beautiful city. Everyone I have met has been so helpful and friendly, and I know the experience would be even better if I were more familiar with the language.

Rocket French is helping me to do that. Thank you.

Hi my name is Leslie Doucette my husband and I travel twice a year to Mexico for winter holidays. I've always wanted to learn how to speak Spanish, but my job prevents me from attending classes.

I had discovered Rocket Spanish online and I am loving it. It enables me to study at my own convince and at a very affordable price.

I'm just a beginner, but have learned a tremendous amount in a very short time. The lessons are easy to follow, and I'm having so much fun impressing my friends and relatives with what I have learned so far. We are leaving for Mexico in January and I can hardly wait to be able to converse with the Spanish people we have met over the years. They won't believe how much I've improved over the last year. I've enjoyed learning this wonderful language though Rocket Spanish, so much so that I have just signed up for level II. Thank you for the helpful online memos that you sent me during the first level. My next step is to get my husband Rob interested in learning the language so we can practice together. Thanks again for making this a fun experience it is a wonderful language to learn.

It's a fabulous product I've not used any other product that does as good a job as Rocket Spanish does. It's by far better than other programs that I've tried to use.

I'm really learning and I can't wait to get the second edition, which I just ordered. I think it's a great, great tool and I love the way that they teach. Thanks, bye.

My wife is from Paris and my daughter is fluent in French at four years old. It was time for me to get busy with French, so I decided to take a beginning French class at a city college and get an online course as well. After four months I was listening better and had improved. I especially liked Rocket French as there is lots of spoken French by a native and you send regular emails with French lessons about everyday matters.

My wife thought the course was definitely challenging and useful as you must listen to French speakers if you want to do well in France. The course is very well laid out and is quite manageable for anyone with rudimentary computer skills.

Thanks for the help.

I am planning to retire to Mexico or Costa Rico within the next year. I studied Spanish in High School and lived in Europe for 6 years and visited Spain frequently. I exercised my Spanish over the years but was never fluent and there were long periods of time between uses. Now that I am planning to live permanently in a Spanish speaking country it is time for me to get serious about becoming fluent in Spanish.

I have been studying the Rocket Spanish course now for about 3 weeks and have been very excited and pleased with my progress. The lessons are easy to understand and supporting materials are very good for expanding depth of understanding.

I would highly recommend the Rocket Spanish courses to all students at the beginners or those with some Spanish experience. I think you will find you will be picking up Spanish naturally and will be able to travel and use your new knowledge easily and comfortably.

I particularly like that I can study from my computer without having to buy CDs. I just log on, find my lesson and within a minute am busy working away, learning. I am sure you will have the same great learning experience I have had.

Enjoy. Sígame!

My name is Scott and I'm about half way through the Rocket Spanish language course. This is my first attempt ever to learn a living language. And it seems to be working out really well for me.

The main reason I recommend Rocket Spanish is the absolute convenience of being able to learn Spanish at any time and any place of my own choosing.

Another reason I recommend Rocket Spanish is that it provides more than just audio lessons, for learning Spanish, there are great written materials to support everything that you do with the audio lessons.

The greatest benefit I gained from Rocket Spanish is learning a new language which is an exiting thing. It's a practical thing as well, because I can take a lesson, work though a unit, and be able to go out to the street the same day and use it, it's very practical.

Other people should be able to expect to gain the same skills as well from using Rocket Spanish.

With Rocket Spanish I feel like I'm not taking a course in the traditional sense of the word, the learning feels natural, it feels like it's effective and I enjoy myself and I don't feel like I'm being forced into somebody else's structure.

So try Rocket Spanish I think you will find that it's going to be effective for you as well.

Just to put things into context, I completed Rosetta Stone a few years ago and at the end of it, I knew a lot of nouns, phrases, and partial sentences, but couldn't string together a handful of sentences together into any kind of meaningful conversation. Suffice it to say, as a cinephile and avid traveler, I had aspired to a proficiency level somewhat higher than a Francophone toddler.

Now that I've almost completed Premium Level (already have Premium Plus and Platinum on tap), I'm definitely picking up a lot more nuances in film dialogues, and I am also more confident about my pronunciation. The Rocket Reviews are really useful in getting you to think about the different variations and syntaxes that you can apply to the lesson you've just completed.

The Language and Culture modules have a lot of substance to them, and hopefully, they can be deeper integrated into the Interactive Audio modules. As a specific example, the 'Putting Things Together' lessons were exactly what I was looking for in terms of having the facility/vernacular to string together phrases into a coherent sentence without guessing the applicable joinders (like "by the way", or "nevermind") by translating English terms word for word and hope that they use a similar expression in French.

Hi, this is Molly. I just got the Rocket Japanese system and already I have learned a lot more than I would have expected in the first couple of days.

Not only are the lessons easy to understand, but affordable. They are set up in a way that is fun and easy to learn. The games are also very helpful in learning certain words and characters.

I don’t have a job currently, and ordering this was a breeze, and it was within my budget. At about one fourth of the cost of the **competitor** it seems to work from what I can guess, just as well, if not better.

I have wanted to learn Japanese for a while now but never thought I would find something so amazing and rewarding to help get me through it quickly. I don’t understand why someone would not want to use this system to learn such a beautiful language. Using Rocket Japanese people will find that it’s not hard to learn a new language, even one that’s quite different from all other languages, as Japanese is.

Whether you need to learn it for travel, or you just want to learn it for fun I think there is no better choice than the Rocket Japanese system. Thank you.

Rocket Spanish was just what I needed. I wanted a Spanish course online that I could take whenever I could fit it into my schedule. I did not want to take a college class where you receive a grade or have to go into a learning center. The lessons are interactive and conversational Spanish is used. I am able to learn phrases people actually use in Spanish instead of tedious conjugations and vocab words. Overall a great program for a busy body.

Thank you for thinking of the 'Adult Learners' who may need to learn at a different pace. The visuals are GREAT! To actually watch a person signing and repeating it as long as needed made it simple.

The games are also a wonderful way for me to test what I have learned. I cannot say thank you enough! I know this is the beginning of a wonderful working relationship since there are other languages I must learn.

Rocket Chinese is awesome. I used your competitor (the one that advertises on TV) and it was a waste of time. They say it teaches you like a child. The problem is you are not learning as a child. It is too hard to go back and review a particular word or subject and it has technical problems. I'd think that for it's price it would have them worked out. Rocket Languages is the best language program on the market. This is the second language that I have studied with Rocket Languages and it is tops.

I have been a middle school language arts teacher for 20 years and have a master's degree in curriculum and instruction.

When I decided that I needed to "refresh" my Spanish from twenty years ago, I tried out three different programs, before I finally found Rocket Spanish. It was a wonderful review of beginning Spanish, yet it progressed at a rate which made my listening and speaking skills increase quickly. I transferred all the lesson files to my MP3 player, plugged an adapter into my car radio and listened everyday on my way to and from school - I was hooked.

I played the lessons on my computer when I was at home, and took the quizzes which came regularly from the Rocket Spanish e-mail letters. When I finished all the Beginners lessons, I couldn't wait to go on to the advanced course. The organization of the lessons makes it easy for students who are interested in reviewing or skipping specific conversational settings. Vocabulary is always presented as part of a spoken phrase which allows the learner to make it immediately relevant. The phrases are repeated often enough that students who are using the files don't have to worry about missing a phrase and then having to rewind to hear it again.

I'm a visual learner, and thought I would often have to use the printed out lessons for reinforcement, but the audio tapes were definitely adequate. The printed out lessons did help to extend my vocabulary even more with lists of important words.

Equally important, throughout all the lessons, Mauricio continually encouraged me as the student to listen, speak, listen, speak! I didn't have to worry about sounding "loco".

I am truly enjoying Advanced Rocket Spanish and will use it when I go with my students on a mission trip to Nicaragua in Spring.
