Rocket Italian — Munich , Germany
After trying different language suites, text books and audio programs, I must admit that I could have saved a lot by starting out with rocket. The different features such as writing exercises and quizzes are something the program has over other systems.
I do find the goading unnecessary, however, whereby I'm referring to the pricing politics during the free trial. For 6 days they flashed me pop-ups, that I could save half the price of the $400 package. Then, right after I finally purchased the suite, I see yet another limited offer, which would have saved me an additional $30. That makes me question the integrity of the service, although I haven't regretted my purchase to date. Why flash the $400 price tag, like you are bartering at a Turkish bazaar? The American accent spoken by Alex reminds me of fingernails and a chalk-board. But the Itialian speakers dominate the course. I feel confident reccommending Rocket Italian to others seeking to achieve conversational proficiency.
Rocket French — Teddington
The combination of the online tools and the ability to listen to the lessons whilst doing other things provides a really powerful learning combination. I particularly value the ability to watch and listen to my own attempts and compare them with a good French speaker!
Rocket German — India
The classes are simply awesome, especially the interactive sessions. They make you feel like you are already on your way to speaking great German! The pronunciations and grammatical nuances are clearly explained and there are lots of examples to learn from. I love Rocket German!!
Rocket German — Berlin , Germany
I am satisfied with the service and I have a suggestion what can be improved further. I like the idea of a comprehensive course available at any time. What I miss is downloadable audios - not the dialogues, but the phrases. The phrases are extremely important and helpful in learning a language. I could easily skip dialogues (I don't), let alone those long 25-minute audios with lots of talk in English (enjoyable but mostly waste of time to be honest, too much of unnecessary chatter). So far I have been sitting in front of my monitor for hours to learn the language, staying focused which is a key to learning. But this is such a luxury which you only enjoy in rare periods during your annual cycle. Most of the time you end up downprioritising the language course due to other urgences. I could use recorded phrases - all of them in a lesson or, even better, those I mark with a star for my own collection which also is a nice service - to listen to them while I have no time to sit down at my desk.

Rocket French — Canada
I love that the program is available to me for a lifetime. I haven't explored the support forums much but when I have they were very helpful and quick to respond. I am really impressed with this program, and after studying Level 1 and half of Level 2 I took a trip to Quebec and was able to communicate pretty well.
I'm happy that I can continue to study according to my own schedule and when I am ready to study another language, I will definitely use Rocket.
Rocket Spanish — chula vista, ca , United States
So far so good... I've tried and tossed two other Spanish apps... I felt Rocket Spanish was worth a shot and now think I'll be able to gain the level of conversational Spanish to not look like a total idiot.
I like RocketLanguages' overall approach, but I don't like that the Test area only accepts one answer. Sometimes there are multiple correct answers, and those should be revealed as correct answers as well. Another thing that could be improved is the amount of content from previous lessons that's interspersed into later lessons. The quizzes in particular should test knowledge from previous lessons as well as the current lesson.
Rocket Hindi — Salmiya , Kuwait
I tried the Hindi language trial package and found very helpful. Hence decided to buy the material. Hope to make some good progress and learn Hindi as soon as possible. Currently Rocket Hindi offers only Level 1 premium version. However, if they upgrade to other levels, it will be helpful. Looking forward for their support for learning a new language.
Rocket Spanish — United States
I use the audio lessons most. Haven't ever down loaded the documents. Too huge. Wish it was in book form and came with the program. I would have paid a little extra for that option I also like the girl. It is easier to understand her when she speaks spanish as she is not as fast as the native speakers.
Nice try period , Enough information to choose to get the package at the end of it. Very clear presentation, i have fun and get a lot of enjoyment . Language and culture parts are well done , games give confidence in language acquisition
