The tests at the end of the lessons are a little too easy, but it works. Being able to add words to my vocabulary is also a great feature. I really enjoy the option to take the final exams. That gives me a very good idea of how I am progressing.

My mom and I talked about going to Italy but she thought we would want to take a tour since we don't speak the language. Tours sound horrible to me, I would rather we went on our own. Unfortunately, my mom has passed away, but I still want to go. I have thought for more than a year on trying to learn the language. I read a lot of reviews and Rocket Italian always came out near the top. I also tried several samples of different programs. I liked the way on Rocket Italian that you can see the spelling and practice how to say the words properly. I took Latin in high school and find that it has helped in my recognizing Italian words when I read them. I didn't think I would feel comfortable with Italian so quickly. I also didn't know it would be so fun!

I'm slowly learning basic French, and it's great. Rocket Languages allows me to rewind and rewind (and rewind again!) until I get it right. Then, I practice on my friends who are native French speakers. Rocket Languages actually gives you the terminology that is used by natives, which is why I'm doing better than if I had studied with another program. If you want to take your time and get it right on the first go, I recommend Rocket Languages.

Hola!

I am enjoying my Spanish lessons I copied from Rocket Spanish on CD. As of now, I commute to work around 45 minutes everyday one way. It's great to just play a CD again and again until I feel comfortable moving to the next step. Plus, I have a commuter who was not at all interested in learning Spanish, but found himself picking the language up while I play the CD's for myself.

I work with a lot of Spanish speaking people and they are very supportive and helpful if I happen to have a question. Rocket Spanish is a great way to learn and I have no regrets at all purchasing it. It's is so much fun learning this fun language and now I found myself trying to listen in on others talking to see how I am coming along. Thank you very much!

I took a half year of Spanish in high school, and I have learned more Spanish and more useful Spanish in the six free lessons that you sent me. Needless to say I purchased both, the Premium (Level 1) and the Premium Plus (Level 2) learning download package.

As a teacher with a large Hispanic population in my schools, I'm positive that what I'm learning through Rocket Spanish is going to help me get to know my students better and assist me in understanding that the challenges that they face when conversing in a language other than their native one.

Rocket Spanish is fun and engaging and is easy to learn because learning occurs naturally the way you learned your first language.

Having the audio files available for download in mp3 format, means that I can download them to my phone, or burn them to a CD to play them in my car, so I can practice anywhere.

And the complementing text that lets me see what I'm listening to, so I can learn the written as well as the spoken word and it helps me to visualize what I'm saying. The Rocket Spanish learning lounge looks like it's packed with fascinating lessons and I can't wait to dig in and get started.

Good blend of useful phrases, vocabulary, cultural lessons, and written lessons. Best variety of learning tools (audio, student recorded audio vs example, interactive tests, reading, etc...) compared to what I've seen in Rosetta Stone or Pimsleur. No pressure 6 day trial gives you a good opportunity to preview the product. Details of what you receive a little confusing and the price is borderline high although competitive. Will be up to individual if you get your money's worth but the substance is there to take advantage.

My name is Brielle, I’m 23 and I kind of spontaneously decided to try to learn French about two months ago.

This summer I’ll be spending a month in France and even though I’m spending it with friends that do speak a lot of English, I thought it’d be nice to know some French. So when I first decided to learn I paid a few local French students for private lessons, but I kind of learned pretty quick that even if somebody knows their language pretty well it doesn’t mean they can transfer their knowledge to you that easily.

So after that, when I pretty much took the 6 free trial lessons on Rocket French, after my 6th trial I purchased the full downloadable version, and I’m pretty happy I did that.

The program is organized, its comprehensible, there is audio which I think is the most, you know, the biggest help, there is homework to test yourself, you can go at your own pace, and something about teaching yourself a language is pretty rewarding I think. At the rate I’m going with the lessons, I’m pretty excited about getting to France. I might not be quite fluent by then, but I will have all the confidence to get by I think.

Overall it’s a sweet program. I haven’t tried any other language programs to compare it to, but I guess that says a lot in itself.

I’d recommend this to anyone with a sincere drive to learn a language. Rocket French puts all of the information you need at your fingertips, it’s in a comprehensible and fun manner, you just have to make the time. It’s great, yeah. Thanks so much. Bye now.

This reviews Rocket Languages' Chinese Premium and Premium Plus. The program is well organized in its audio and website. Audio lessons use a typical conversation to teach new words and basic grammar lessons. Lin Ping, the teacher for the course, has a good clear Northern Chinese accent and speaks the majority of the time. It is peculiar that she converses with Dave, an Austrailian with a good accent, but not one I'd try to imitate if I was trying to blend in while visiting. This is fixed in the Premium Plus section. There is some English to introduce the subject and context, but the majority of the lesson is repeating words while you can follow a written transcript in Pinyin and I think Simplified characters. Then you practice memorizing by repeating sections of the conversation, hearing and identifying words, and speaking the words in Chinese knowing their equivalent in English. (hard!) The only major complaint is a lack of a translation dictionary to double check if the words you are adding to your vocabulary have the right definition (the audio tapes breeze through definitions only once); when looking up a word you will most often find it used in other lessons/sentences.

Writing sections are where the nuts and bolts (like tones or numbers) of the languages are taught. Videos assist with writing, though .gifs may achieve the same thing with less clicks.

I have a few suggestions for the Android app. First, there should not be a product selection screen, nor a choice for "Trial" after I've paid for the full product. I should not have to remember if meeting family was in Premium or Premium Plus sections. Secondly, there should be an option to select multiple lessons and download them onto the device itself; when visiting China wifi and data was sporadic and expensive yet I wanted to keep practicing. Otherwise, the android app feels like browsing the website.

All in all, it was a great value for money; not having to worry about time limits and being able to practice on my own has helped a lot.

Mauricio! My name is Wayne Cramer my wife and I operate a "non profit organization" called Andean Aid that provides developmental opportunities to poor children in the Colombian border state of Táchira, Venezuela.

I would certainly recommend Rocket Spanish to others', in fact I'm doing that right now. This February I'm leading a team of twelve men to build basic block homes for women who are raising their children alone. Most of these men don't speak any Spanish and are asking me about Spanish learning programs.

I tell them to get Rocket Spanish, why?, because I use it and it's effective. I'm on a continuous quest to achieve fluency in Spanish so I've tried many products and self study programs. All of them have been boring or require a degree of discipline that I just can't manage. Your lessons are interesting and practical, they cover a variety of actual situations that I encounter each time I visit Venezuela, why you even teach me how to argue in Spanish, you just can't beat that. The commute in my car becomes a learning session, the computer games are much better than flashcards and the scoring appeals to those with a competitive nature.

I have many wonderful friends in Venezuela, until now our conversations have been superficial. I can't wait till my next trip to bring these relationships to a new level with my newly acquired skill in speaking Spanish. So if you are looking for a Spanish learning program, get Rocket Spanish. Quit looking and get learning! Thanks.

I have recommended Rocket Languages to all my friends and family. I am having an awesome time learning French at my own pace. The point system is cool and motivational. I cannot wait to finish the premium version to move onto to premium plus section. After that, it will be Spanish then Italian and MORE. I will continue to use the program FOR LIFE, and I know it's features will only improve over time. I love Paul and Claire, they're exceptional tutors.

My favorite section is WRITE IT, I seem to do the best in this section. The Hear it, Say it, Write it and Know it sections are awesome and reinforces what and how you learn. I wish that the software was able to grade you itself based on your pronunciations, just as it does in the write section. I also admire the MY TOOLBOX section. My vocab section is amazing and limits the amount of note taking I need to do in my personal notebook. The Advanced Learning Techniques section is a MUST READ, very helpful tips.

I wish the PHRASE FINDER was actually a French-English translation dictionary, as opposed to only being able to search words that are contained within the lessons. Dictionary feature would be an awesome addition. I also thought that we were able to download the text portions of the lesson, but I do not see that as a feature. My work around for that, is simply screen-capping the text and saving them as jpgs for easy viewing/reading on my phone.

I do not like the app for the phone, because it does not allow audio downloads and it is not as up to date as the site. The app also does not save my progress, so I am only able to test via the computer. My work around is simply downloading all audio sections onto my computer and then transferring onto my phone/kindle for easy listening. It beats not having access to app when there is no wifi or internet connection available.

I hope that I will soon be able to write my next review in French.

Thanks for reading...

I have tried the Rocket Sign Language program several times. I like the variety of choices that you provide for learning sign language.

The person actually doing the sign is very helpful when trying to learn. It is sometimes hard to tell exactly how to sign something when there is just a drawn illustration.

Hi, this is Dawn Moreno, and I just wanted to say that I bought the Rocket Spanish program a couple of months ago. I absolutely love it, it's the best program out there. I've used several other programs that were very difficult to understand, Rocket Spanish takes you from the very beginning and it's very comprehensive, it takes you to in my opinion to at least intermediate to advance level.

It's painless, easy to understand. My husband is Cuban and he couldn't believe how much better my Spanish speaking and understanding comprehension was after just a few weeks of using Rocket Spanish.

Whereas other programs I have learned I just got so hung up on vocabulary that ... I just don't know... I got all bound up I just couldn't remember anything.

I really do like Rocket Spanish, I think it's very well priced, is well worth the money. I highly, highly recommend it. Thank you and have a great day.

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.

Frankly, I think Rocket Italiano is very good. Though it is slow going for me, it does seem thorough. I do think the price is perfect and if I get through this first course, I will continue with the next course. I am going to Sicily at the end of June and the first part of July, so I hope I have it somewhat together by then.

Motivation to learn a different language is the key. I like the way Rocket Italiano has provided different ways to keep this interesting. The testing is interesting, as is trying to speak the way the instructors speak. I have not gone through the entire course step by step, but I have jumped around a bit and keep coming back for more.

I am wondering though if there is a major difference between the Italian language and the Sicilian language. I have relatives in Sicily and I am going to try to communicate with them when I am visiting. Some of them I have never met. It should be interesting. I will continue the course when I get back and if I am comfortable enough, I will enroll in the next Rocket Italiano course. As of right now though, it seems that I have a long way to go.

I love Rocket French from the first day! It is the only software available that has all the features I look for in a language learning software. It has MP3 files containing the audio sounds of many French words, phrases, and sentences. These are my favorite feature because these audio's pronounce first in English, then a pause, followed by the same phrase in French, then another pause, wrapping up with the same phrase repeated in French. The lovely voice is so pleasant to the ear that it is itself a splendid motivation for me to learn.

Other great features about the product are the comprehensive coverage of the language across all the chapters, cute pictures, and fun quizzes. Amazingly, I am learning French and loving every minute of it. My wish is that one day very soon I will be able to converse fluently with my neighbors and friends in Montreal. My husband and I bought a condominium there a couple of years ago and we love to visit every chance we get. I highly recommend this product without any reservation whatsoever! I fail to see any down side to it at all.
