Rocket Italian — Lakewood Ranch Florida , United States
I am very pleased with Rocket Italian. After two weeks my vocabulary has increased greatly along with my ability to speak the language. I spoke to a native Italian and they told me that my accent was spot on and I have only got through the first block of lessons in Module 1.
Rocket Spanish and a cup of coffee has been the perfect way to start my day. My favorite feature is "Know It". Support has been very gracious correcting things I'm not sure about. When I travel, I've been using the new iPhone App so that I don't lose any of my skills.
Rocket French — falcon north carolina
I have always wanted to learn and speak French. this Rocket French course is good, very very comprehensive, and covers a lot of material. I am not so shy now to speak French as I was. Wonderful course.
I looked up the best software to learn Japanese because it became too hard to learn on my own and now I feel so confident with it thanks to Rocket Japanese, nothing i have ever learned has been so streamlined and at times where i found it hard to understand i asked the question and got a response almost instantly and it was always super helpful
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.
Rocket Italian — Glendale, NY
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.
Rocket Arabic — Doha
Good and benefited a lot. Vast and exhaustive. Best ever language course. Visual activities are in great expectation. As a doctor i need more conversation relating to doctor patient. Beneficiaries need to undergo more homework.
I've looked at so many German courses but I just cant find another that provides the variety of tasks with various levels of difficulty and entertainment to keep the students attention. It provides continuous entertainment and motivation.
It's never a chore to get back to study, it's a real buzz.
Rocket German — Bangalore , India
Initially I dint trust. But when started experimenting really awesome software. You can learn a lot lot n more.
Really appreciated for its designing. Learning German made me easy but little expensive to purchase online. Fit for corporate employees. For students little burden I feel.
