Rocket Languages Member Reviews
Read all about how Rocket Languages online language learning courses have helped our members on their quest to learn a language!
I have tried a lot of the big name Spanish language software, through their free trial versions, but when I came across Rocket Spanish and tried their free version I knew it was a keeper.
It became the number one contender in helping to fulfill a life long dream of learning a new language (Spanish). I was catapulted from not knowing anything, to basic level, to what I will say is an intermediate level in a short time. What I like about this program is that the moderators and the dialogues are very easy on the ears, it's like you have your on personal teacher(s) at home in your living room with you and the website is constantly upgraded, out of five stars I would give them four stars and a thumbs up.
I look forward to using Rocket Spanish every day. And now with the iPhone app, I can listen to the audio while I'm driving to work, and then study on the computer later. I am traveling to Spain in May, and can't wait to practice everything that I have learned so far!
Rocket Spanish — Peru
I like the audio lessons. The new "know it" part seems a little redundant. The quizes are much too easy. There is very little practice writing or otherwise to really get concepts from a lesson nailed into the brain. And finally the organization is a totally a mess! Where is the overall lesson plan? There is so much repetition between the "Beginners Book" or whatever it is called and the language and cultural lessons, and the lesson numbers don't match, etc...I think there should be at least an order, like read lesson 3.1 in the manual, then listen to the audio lesson 3.1 and then do the cultural lesson 3.6 or something like that. Also the "say it" part where you speak to the computer doesn't really help me at all or my pronunciation. Hearing it helps with that.
Overall it is a pretty good method but could use a better format and overall organization. Bueno, creo que eso es todo.
The format is perfect for my learning style and being able to interact with the conversations is great. The recording feature is very helpful for working on my pronunciation. The course is well structured for anyone interested in learning a language at home or would be a good supplement to a classroom lesson.
Rocket Spanish — Cathedral City/California
I am 50 years old and I never thought I would be able to learn another language, but Rocket Languages makes it relatively easy to learn. The format is easy to follow making the whole learning process enjoyable. I would definitely recommend to friends.
I love Rocket Spanish, and am really enjoying the course. There is so much content for the reasonable price, including the ability to download audio for on-the-go listening. There are also games, tests and a couple of books to download. Oh yes, and the new app is great.
Rocket Spanish is simply the best language course available (at any price); and as a bonus the price of Rocket Spanish itself is quite modest. I have tried virtually all rapid learning methods available in my quest to learn Spanish and have found the Rocket system superior for a variety of reasons including (but not limited to):
1) Portability - lessons are brief and can be downloaded as mp3 files for listening during travel (i.e. you are not stuck in front of a computer) 2) Engaging conversations and situations that are applicable for foreign travel 3) Grammar lessons are designed to be painless and effective 4) It is rather entertaining ... I find I can spend hours studying without feeling fatigue 5) Price - the cost of this program is a mere fraction of the cost of it's competitors; yet more overall more comprehensive and effective 6) Consistent improvement. The Staff of Rocket Spanish are constantly at work examining their product and adding features to make the features yet more effective. I highly recommend this product to anyone whose work or travel requires the mastering of a foreign language; as well as for the culturally curious who simply want to have some fun.
Rocket Spanish — Cape Neddick, ME
All I really have to say is that Rocket Languages is one of the only things that works for me on my time. This program has been helping me catch up in Spanish class a lot. I'd recommend to any of my friends that needed help to try this.
Rocket Spanish — Philadelphia, PA , United States
I have been looking for the right program to further my Spanish knowledge for some time, in order to take the next step beyond the beginner's level, before I happened upon discovering Rocket Spanish a few months ago.
Its highly favorable reviews in comparison to other more advertised and known programs available, as well, as their lower costs was an unbeatable combination and the deciding factors. Add in their free lifetime access and upgrades (not offered by others elsewhere) and the opportunity was too good to pass up. Having previous learning, I started with their intermediate level 2 Premium Plus edition and it picked up right where I wanted and has been very beneficial in the results I was hoping for. Thanks to the design of the program and website, my retention level has been able to increase over other methods used previously. If, as expected, all continues well in my progress, I will be ordering Rocket Languages' advanced level 3 Platinum edition also.
