Rocket Korean — United States
I am a new user of Rocket Languages, and I am having a great time. For years I played around with the idea of learning the Korean language, but I had no idea how to take the first step. Rocket has given me the opportunity to study Korean at my own pace, without worrying about deadlines or expectations. I like the feel of being on a personal journey, since that was my expectation from the very beginning. Ultimately, I would like to become fluent in the language before I make my first trip to South Korea. I think that learning the language before hand would show locals respect when I communicate, and give them an idea of who I am as a foreigner in their country. I would like to make a good impression, for myself and for others.
I have not yet rated this program five stars, only because I have retained very little vocabulary in my first month. My lack of memory could be my own fault, because I don't have very much spare time on my hands to study for hours daily. However, I would like anyone reading this to know that Rocket Languages offers an amazing way to get your foot through the door. Please know that I am actively working to give more time and attention to my studies. I hope that by the end of this month, I will meet my initial goals.
Rocket Spanish — Casablanca , Morocco
Rocket Languages has really been perfecting their approach to language acquisition with the Spanish Travelogue (and I have been through the other three levels). The course is wonderfully varied to keep me interested, and by the time I’ve finished a lesson, the phrases stick – and, most importantly, are useable. When I speak in Spanish to one of my Skype contacts about the lesson, I am speaking with a very competent level of fluency. What could be better than that?
Btw, the storyline describes an incredible trip through Latin America. I can’t wait to visit some of these places…
Rocket Korean — VIC , Australia
Rocket Languages is the most motivating online learning program I have ever used. I have been learning Korean for almost 2 years and there are times when I skip a few days of practice simply because I lose interest. Repetition does that to you. The points and badge system encourage you to work every day and compete with the other Rocket users. It gives you the strength to go each day and have even more fun learning the language.
I've already recommended it to a few Korean language students I know. Hopefully they surrender and check it out.
Rocket Korean — United States
I recommend this to anyone who would like to learn a new language fast and easy and on their own time. My experience has been great, learning when I want and how I want. Some days I focus on vocabulary and other days I just listen to the audio. This program is definitely a good way to get started with a language but real mastery will come from using the new language in the outside world but I believe this program can really help you achieve this.
Rocket Korean — Korea, Republic of
After marrying my husband (who is Korean) I moved to South Korea and began the process of learning Korean. Rocket Korean is a very affordable and enjoyable way to learn Korean; it contains common phrases that are actually used in everyday conversation, and also has several methods to make sure the information sticks after you finish the lesson.
I'd definitely use Rocket Languages again if I ever need to learn another language.
Rocket Spanish — San Miguel de Allende, GTO , Mexico
I've lived as a US expat in Mexico for more than 2 years, and until now my Spanish has been poor.
1) As a big expat town, it's easy to speak English here and this can slow progress. Ex: (I get in a taxi. Me--"Hola, Señor. Sabes donde esta..." He--"Where you want to go?" (sigh)) 2) My first teacher was a 70 year old Mexican woman. Great gal, and I really liked her program. But, by her own admission, some of the later installments were prepared when she'd smoked a bit too much mota. :-/ 3) My second teacher was a young Mexican man over iTalki. Very patient, and a great teacher, but his program essentially involved him giving very interesting lectures over Skype and waiting while I wrote nearly everything down. There were no practice materials to go along with it. Nice guy, great teacher--but it's not just that I wasn't learning to speak the language; it was more that I couldn't understand how I EVER would with no drills and practice based upon his lectures. :-/ 4) So now I've found Rocket Spanish. After the above experience--and Pimsleur (which I like but consider limited)-- I'm convinced this is precisely the program for me. I get all the practice I want, and the gamification employed has gotten me addicted. After a bit more than a week I'm already speaking more Spanish, feeling more comfortable with it--and am delighted to have a program that makes sense to me. I will be recommending it to all of my friends, and writing a more in-depth review on my own site in the future. Muchas Gracias, Rocket Languages!

Rocket Hindi — kakinada , India
Hindi is my national language. so i picked up rocket languages as the best one to enrich my language. the modules are good enough to make us better speaker. I have some other material but this is interesting and easy to adapt. the way of teaching is very nice thank you rocket languages.
Great product with a surprising amount of useful phrases worked into the dialogue. Love being able to act out a conversation. Only thing lacking would be a direct literal translation of some phrases and words in the lesson screen. But otherwise great, I listen to it all the time.

I've used Rosetta Stone for other languages including Arabic and nothing matches Rocket Arabic. Rosetta Stone was completely unusable. Rocket languages is the best method I've used to date for learning a language.
