Rocket Spanish — United States
The online Spanish Course is exactly what I was looking for and the price was easily affordable. I will turn 73 this year and one time through the materials is never enough for me but I am able to repeat each exercise several times until I can complete it flawlessly. The record-it application is very smart and has been a tremendous help in improving my pronunciation, the intonation and phrasing of short sentences. I am part way through the first module but I am looking forward to the grammar and survival lessons. I believe I could be ready for Mandarin in a couple of years. This is my first attempt at learning a second language to my native American Mid-West English.

Too early to tell.
Also, this review page is very irritating because I cannot get rid of it or submit it. I cannot go into the lessons until i am able to do something with this page????? 200 character minimum is difficult when you have little to say because you are new to the program. Perhaps you should consider making the review optional rather than compulsory so clients don't get caught up in your requirements for the review. This type of action on your part is the stuff that makes your program lose some of it's lustre. I hope not to see this type of sales activity by your company again.

My review is short due to the fact that i only recently found Rocket Spanish since moving to Arizona. I hope to keep my skills as time progresses. Thank you for this opportunity. I have leaned Spanish, and French and use them both when traveling. I hope to learn even more languages with this program. Keeping the brain working seems to be a strong asset for an active adult.

I was astonished by the sexism and gender stereotypes, there were even lessons about the nativity. I wanted to share these lessons with my partner, who is more advanced than me, but I was too embarrassed, and some lessons were unlistenable for me, due to these problems.
Also, the lessons themselves tend to just ask you to repeat what you have heard, and only occasionally challenge the listener to take what they've learned in the lesson an actually apply it to make new sentences. On a positive note I was pleased that the instructors would often add multiple ways of saying things.

After looking (and trying) the other well known online learning resource, I decided to try Rocket Spanish. It was an excellent decision. Each lesson is not too long, and that makes it easy to maintain a good pace. I like that they make sure to have me practice the writing and reading parts of the language, not just the conversational aspect. I love the lifetime access, which is something that is not offered by the other online learning resource. All in all, I'm very happy so far with my decision.

The short time I've used Rocket Language has been tremendous. About half a year ago, I challenged myself to learn Spanish and so started trying the different free options. I found one I liked and poured my time into it, disciplining myself to studying every day. At first I loved it, racking up points and enjoying how successful the app made me feel, yet very soon I became frustrated. Grammar and rules of the language were apparently unimportant as the time was never taken to teach as to why a certain word or phrase was correct. And as for phrases and words that I would actually use in real life? I spent my time talking about giving alcoholic beverages to my pet bear. I soon realized that in regards to learning the language well, I was spinning my wheels.
All that to say this: This program has been a breath of fresh air! Right off the bat, the first lesson gave a tremendous layout of how I am to greet and interact with someone new that I may meet. This was extremely helpful, yet it didn't stop there. I soon found a found tab entitled "Language and Culture." It didn't take long for me to figure out that these lessons taught me the grammar and rules of the Spanish language. "My goodness," I thought, "is this program actually teaching me the (utterly necessary) underlying structure of the language?" Oh yes it was, and doing a great job at it! To summarize I would definitely recommend the program. The lessons are set up in audio format, in which two people are interacting with each other in what would be normal everyday conversations. The necessary words and phrases are explained with pauses mixed in to give the learner a chance to insert the correct word or phrase in a given situation. Simply put, I found them easy to work with and very helpful. Final thoughts: Give it a whirl! This style of audio learning has been studied deeply, and Rocket Language does a tremendous utilizing it. As for cost, the program exceeded my expectations, so I found the price to be quite fair.

Rocket Language Spanish has thorough lessons with ample practice for each, including listening, speaking and writing, plus flash cards and quizzes. I like learning practical phrases through conversations. I recommend Rocket Languages based on completing the first 7 lessons. I have not yet needed customer service.

I have a good base of Spanish vocabulary but I am a very visual learner and have struggled with hearing and speaking the language. Rocket Spanish, in just a few days, has helped develop these skills. I was able to begin a conversation with someone in Spanish for the first time, with confidence. I look forward to continuing to learn and be better able to converse.
