Rocket Chinese — Canada
Well designed course that combines visual, audio, written, quizzes, flash cards and reminders along with a little humour. It's a very well designed program.
The online computer version has an advantage. It records your spoken phrases so you can play them back to compare pronunciation with the native speaker. This is great! The iPhone version lacks that feature. It grades your spoken response but you can't hear your spoken response. Overall, I'm very impressed with the educational design and the usefulness of Rocket Chinese. Very well done! I used both the computer and my iPhone for practice. I like both versions. It's the best language learning course I've seen, by far.
Rocket French — United States
My preference would have been to experience other French tutorial products first for comparative purposes, however, this does not diminish my initial assesment of RocketFrench which has been surprisingly impressive for the three modules completed so far. The product is very well structured with an intuitive interface and excellent audio tracks. The light humorous approach makes the work of learning French easy, fun and most of all memorable. I believe that my re-assesment of RocketFrench will probably be deserving of five stars as I progress through the remaining modules.
The twenty minute lessons are just the right length. The narrators are personable and the dialogue is usually pretty interesting. The fact that I can download the lessons and listen to them on my iPod while I walk to work in the morning is especially helpful.

I liked using the program during the 6-day trial, but I am a little upset. I started to purchase the premium package, but I changed my mind. I closed the purchase window before finalizing the purchase. However, Rocket Languages billed my credit card anyway. Now I will have to dispute this as an unauthorized charge.
Rocket Spanish — Metro Manila , Philippines
This is the most helpful app and course I've tried among all the other apps. The only glitch I found is the hear it, say it part where it does not recognize some of my inputs but overall, the app is great.
Rocket Spanish — dundee , United Kingdom
This is a very good program to learn Spanish , Latin American variation , not Castilian Spanish of Spain. I understand that this version of Spanish is more useful for Americans who probably make up the bulk of the clientele of people wanting to learn Spanish. This version of Spanish will allow people to travel in South America and make themselves understood there and in the South of Spain , where the majority of Spanish Emigrants left for a new life in the former Spanish Colonies. Cuba used to be the destination for economic migrants from the Spanish Peninsular until the Americans liberated , "stole" , the last colonies of Cuba , Puerto Rico and the Philippians, which was then impossible, after the Spanish American War of eighteen ninety eight, which caused then a profound soul searching of the Spanish People, on the loss of their colonies to the United States of America, and the birth of a new generation of Spanish Poets of 1898. That said, the language is useful, if you want to travel in the Republic of Argentina or Chile. It reminds me of the Spanish I was taught many years ago by my first Spanish Teacher who was a refugee from Chile. The only difficulty would be in speaking to a native of Madrid with their Castilian Accent. I recommend this course but hopefully the course creators will be able to tweak the program so it does not keep crashing in the recommended browser " Chrome " !

Rocket Spanish — United States
The Spanish course does an adequate job of starting one learning the language. The technique used is anything but new as I have used it over many years for two of the several languages I know. The price for the first set of lessons is reasonable at less than $100 but then the price escalates.

As with any language, immersion and conversation will get you the farthest, but Rocket Spanish does a good job at giving you a wide range of vocabulary and practice with the spoken language. The reinforcement tools can seem tedious at times, but repetition and commitment is vital to learning a new language. Get it on sale and it is totally worth your time and energy.
