Hi My name is Petra Stark.

I recently graduated from the college of William Mary, last semester I had to take some intensive Spanish classes and I needed to get up to speed really fast and I'm not that good at languages and William Mary it's pretty tough. So, I asked last Christmas my parents for, actually I asked them for **Competitor**, but my mum did a lot of research, which she is really good at and I ended up with Rocket Spanish instead.

So at Christmas I got a big box with my Rocket Spanish CD's and I was in business. I started exactly on the Christmas holiday going through them and I was really thrilled.

Rocket Spanish is really so friendly and comfortable and it was a perfect match for the way that I study, I guess the way that I learn. I was doing a lot of driving between school and my parent's house and my boyfriend and I spent a lot of time in the car and those CD's in the car were just terrific. It probably looks strange to outsiders when I'm speaking to myself in the car, but it really, really truly helps to say out loud and over and over again. I especially liked the long pauses in the lessons so I can practice out loud. I also like the emails that I get with the little tips on grammar and phrases and cultural explanations, they are good little diversion between the real lessons.

Traveling, recently, this last year I went to Costa Rica and Panama in one trip, and I just got back from Thailand and I'm going to China this fall. The thing about the traveling in Costa Rica and Panama is that I wasn't afraid, I could just start to talk, I had my background of base verbs and conjugations, I knew some phrases, it was just a great building block that I could just jump in and start to talk.

So I can say the greatest single thing about Rocket Spanish is that I'm not afraid to start speaking anymore and that's not just in Spanish, when I was in Thailand, I know Cero Thai but because I had the confidence from Rocket Spanish I was just doing the best I could in Thai and getting by speaking. Nothing bad ever happened and only good things happened when you just start speaking to people, they're always responsive, really helpful and kind.

So I want to thank you for your program, Thank you for that little push made me do what I should have done before, which is to tell you what terrific program you have and I would recommend it to anyone and very, very grateful for the opportunity.

So.. gracias y hasta luego, this is Petra Stark. Thank you, Bye.

I have been living in China for a year now and have not had the time to learn Chinese. But when I started to make time to learn. I began looking online to see what there was out there. I looked at many other sites and none of them compared to this site. They really are the best that I have found. I like the fact that I can take the lesson anywhere I want to.

Prior to purchasing, I did extensive research on which Spanish language learning program to select... Rosetta Stone, Tell Me More, Visual Link, Learning Spanish Like Crazy, you name it, I researched and tried it (using trial software). But, at the end of the day - and countless hours of research - Rocket Spanish had the best interface, best reviews, and most accessible teaching methods. This will be the software that my wife and I will use to first, learn Spanish, and second, introduce our daughter to the language. Wish me luck!

This is Jack Thomas. Buon giorno! Mi chiamo Jack and I just love my Rocket Italian language course. I chose the download version because I wanted to have the convenience of having the course on my own computer and I also put the lessons on my MP3 and I listen to them in my car.

I enjoy the entire learning process, it's fun and easy and you (Alex) and Maria make learning really a pleasure, I look forward to each new lesson.

I highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to learn Italian for whatever reason. I wanted to learn the language because in a few months my wife and I are going to Italy and spend almost 3 weeks traveling all over the country on our own. We've been there twice before on tours but this time I wanted to enhance our experience by being able to speak and understand even just a little of this romantic language.

With Rocket Italian you can learn at your own pace on your own time and your own level. For example when I started this conversation and I said "Buon giorno! Mi chiamo Jack" it's just a simple phrase you could learn and it would improve your confidence when meeting and greeting others.

I've traveled to many countries throughout the world and believe me when you make an honest effort to understand and speak the local language even just a little, it goes a long way toward a more positive and enjoyable travel experience.

So, if you want to broaden your horizons by learning another language, like perhaps Italian, I highly recommend Rocket Italian. Thank you and goodbye or should I say Grazie, Arrivederci.

the incremental approach along with the programmed steps/lessons makes the learning process much easier than deciding on your own what to study and how to study. Also, the repetition of key words/phrases from earlier lessons in subsequent lessons really does solidify the material. I also really like the MegaFrench modules. There is so much variety to the available tools. If you want to hit it hard you can use the dialogue lessons/review/know it; if you want to get exposure without too much effort, you can do the games. Brilliant!

The points system is a great motivator. (Let's be honest, we're all a bit competitive).

The "hear it, say it" functions really let's you test yourself and I think recently added "write it" completes it as a language course.

There has been some spelling mistakes throughout the course, but customer service listens and fixes anything brought to their attention.

I recently put the course (or my abilities) to the ultimate test, by traveling to a couple french speaking regions, and I surprised myself at how well it went.

Kudos to the developers of rocketfrench.

Apropósito la cuesta del curso es muy razonable y muy barato, también Mauricio va a darme un regalo por este testimonial, pero todavía es verdad y me gustaría que todas las personas que quisieran aprender español, especialmente los novicios como yo, deben darle mucha consideración, cuando usted va a compran un programa para aprender Español, lo que va a ayudarle más va hacer lo que usted va a usar más, y Rocket Spanish como no es lo mismo. Ojala que usted va hablar español por todas las razones a que necesita y creo que Rocket Spanish va ayudarle para llegar al el lugar que necesita estar.

My name is Andrea Williams. I think Rocket Spanish is a fabulous program. I've had been considering learning Spanish for a number of years but really never made the effort to do that, until I found myself with two friends from South America and suddenly had to actually converse with them in Spanish on a regular basis and while I'm still in the learning stage.

It's been a lot of fun being able to, you know, at least greet my friends in Spanish and say a few things to them and I'm hoping it will also help me in my job down the road.

But I think it's fabulous and just looking forward to getting fluent. Thank you.

Hi, Learning from Rocket Japanese is easy and fast and one gets to know the real feel also because of the conversations. However, as you can understand that any study without aim is worthless. I would suggest that you add more study material which is matchable to the quality of questions to the JLPT levels. This will convince more and more users to join your course and also give a benchmark for them to rate them against a real life test or hurdle.

Rocket Chinese fits the way I learn, and I was very happy to find it. I like the way it gives me options for learning and review instead of just drilling me. And I can go back and review anything I need to, anytime. The way the program is designed, I control my own learning, and I like that. The order of teaching makes sense, the cultural information is very helpful, and the reminders by email from Lin Ping help keep me focused and encourage me to add some variety to my program.

I think the best feature is the ability to record myself and compare it both aurally and visually with the teacher's recording of the same word or phrase. In level one, even though Dave is fun and very good, I do wish both teachers were native speakers for an accurate accent, at least for the recording parts of the lessons.

I've just started learning to write the characters, and so far, that teaching looks great too. I haven't gotten into the games too much, but I think they're helpful for stretching me beyond my comfort level. The point system encourages me to reach for the next goal, and that's fun and rewarding.

Overall, I love the program and I would recommend it to any English speaker who is motivated to learn Mandarin Chinese.

My name is Glenna Voegle, I chose the Rocket Spanish Course after having reviewed several other options, including private lessons. After taking the six free lessons offered on the website, I saw how easy it was for me to learn Spanish, and how much fun it could be. I had tried listening to other programs, but always felt like the speaker spoke too quickly and did not review enough.

This was not my experience with the Rocket Spanish Course. I accessed the course for less than what four private lessons would have cost and was immediately impressed with the high quality and quantity of teaching techniques and materials.

The Interactive Audio Course provides clear pronunciations and lessons which are easy to understand and follow. Moreover, there are wonderful learning games integrated with the program. I am amazed at how much has been included with my purchase of the Rocket Spanish Course. All aspects work together to make learning Spanish a pleasant and feasible experience!

I am planning a trip to Peru next summer and I'm convinced that I shall be able to communicate effectively after having finished this course. I highly recommend the Rocket Spanish program to anyone who is interested in learning Spanish quickly, easily, and enjoyably. Thank you.

We decided to go with Rocket Languages because it got better reviews than the leading language learning software on the market. Once we saw the price was VERY right, we were sold. I didn't immediately see the family discounts and contacted customer service, who promptly answered all my questions and got everyone on board quickly.

I can't say I'll be learning another language in the near future; I'm still trying to master this one. But if I did, I would absolutely use Rocket Languages again and would definitely recommend it to a friend. In fact, I already do recommend it to everyone who asks of me which program they should use to learn a new language!

After numerous app downloads and other spanish teaching techniques I finally found something that I'm seeing progress with, Rocket Spanish. RS is much more thorough than the app approach to learning, with building blocks of real life sentences and structure. I've improved my dialect and most importantly my "ear" for spanish has improved.

Ciao a tutti, welcome everybody, mi chiamo Bob, my name is Bob.

I think I must be one of the most recent students in the Rocket Italian program because I just began the course less than 1 week ago. The exciting part is that I've already begun speaking simple phrases in "la bella lingua" For years I've been meaning to learn Italian, but kept putting it off because I thought it would be too hard to learn as an adult, spending hours trying to memorize words and word forms... was I wrong about that.

With the help of my online tutor Maria and Alex I'm finding that I'm able to pick up phrases and pronunciation with only a little bit of concentration and practice. I'm already at the point where I'm impatient to get to the next lesson.

If you want to not only learn Italian, but what to pick up important information about the Italian people and the culture while having fun in the process, this is the program for you.

If you are planning a trip to Italy, wanting to communicate with friends or native speakers, or if you are like me and just want the pride and satisfaction of being bilingual, I would strongly recommend this program, it works and it's fun, you'll be speaking Italian immediately... seriamente, seriously, this is the way to learn. Arrivederci.

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.

The course is designed to give you plenty of incentive to build your understanding and your vocabulary. The native speaker is wonderfully articulate yet natural and easy-going. This is truly the first time I've made real progress in my quest to learn any language. I'm starting French as soon as I'm finished with the first two Italian courses. The prices are very reasonable for the kind of classroom experience you're getting here at rocket languages. Thank you, NCC

A fun and easy way to learn. Several years ago I started with Rocket German before a trip to Germany. Although I didn't progress very far with the lessons, what I did learn really helped with important things like ordering food, booking a room, getting directions, etc. Now I'm planning a trip to Austria and am planning to go through all 3 levels of lessons before my trip in September 2013. Its a really fun way to learn.

Hi, I'm Monika Doyle, 72 years old. The picture shows me and our youngest grandson. In the past I took two junior college classes for Spanish and developed a love for this language, but life took its own turns and I no longer had time to go to classes. Finally it occurred to me that I have a choice, I don't have to take another class and succumb to its rough schedule.

I can go on studying the language on the Internet right at home and at my own pace. After comparing other courses offered on the Internet I decided to try Rocket Spanish. And boy am I glad I did! I like the personal way that everything is presented. From the very beginning I felt like somebody takes my hand and guides me along. I love the mixture of written and heard conversations, I also like the way that there are so many English explanations, this helps cover the material much quicker than if everything was presented in Spanish.

And of course I do like the games where you pick up the vocabulary and the verbs. Deductively the course is very well thought of. Conversations are first and respective grammar follows. Neither the grammar nor vocabulary are overwhelming; everything is presented in the right amount, just like a piece of art. Muchas gracias Mauricio y Amy.
