I Have Been Enjoying My German Learning Through Rocket German. I Like That Each Lesson Explains What You Are Learning And There Are Opportunities To Review Everything I Have Learnt Looking Forward To Doing More And More Lessons.
Rocket Spanish — Florida , United States
Rocket Languages is a wonderful tool for everyone who wants to expand their vocabulary in other languages. I personally have been taking Spanish and like my life motto, "I regret nothing." I would recommend Rocket Languages to anyone who needs to learn a different language for school or for pleasure.
Rocket French — Canada
Good review of basics and builds on it for more advanced learning. Only been at it for a week, but excited to see what I will learn more. Some of the audio does not match with what I say. I double check with Google Translate and it doesn't not work( Première, Deuxième, Troisième, etc), However based on reviews that I read, it seems to have gotten better!
Rocket Arabic — VIC , Australia
I have previously tried Rocket German which was good and Rocket Arabic is of an equal standard. I like the way that early lessons are structured towards a tourist who just wants to "master" a few basic phrases which can then be built on. In this respect the lesson material is spot on. The only comment I would make is that for those people who do not want to learn to write Arabic, it would be more helpful if the feedback in the voice recognition related to the romanised words rather than the Arabic. However, overall it is hard to beat Rocket Arabic for the features it offers. As an experienced traveller who likes to be able to say a few words in the language of whatever country I am in, I know that there are two things that are essential in a language programme. The first is the chance to rehearse useful phrases so that they can roll off the tongue fairly easily. The second is the chance to attune your ear to native speakers saying everyday things at a normal speed. Rocket Arabic delivers on these two fronts in spades.
Rocket German — Co. Kildare , Ireland
I've only just started my course and am on module 1. However I am really enjoying it and find the course much better than a short course I did recently. I find it a much better course for teaching modern conversational German. As the previous one was more academic. I would prefer if the mobile app was tweaked so that the screen remained always on and not slept while being used in the car. That aside I can highly recommend the course however.
Thanks a lot for this great course for beginners. It was a real step forward in Spanish. Before going to Malaga to learn Spanish in 2010 I had made some basic things and read through first topics using Rocket Spanish but finally I knew enough to get level A2 at Malaga University! Moreover the materials were extremely beneficial for my everyday life in Spain especially when I just arrived there. It is time to go forward but now I'm sure in my success because I have a solid background due to your course. Muchas gracias! Viva your team!!!!!
The Rocket Italian Premium level is great for learning basic travel phrases. The voice recognition software works very well and if you use all the tools they provide for you regularly you'll definitely feel comfortable pulling out Italian phrases when you need them. I do like to listen to the audio lessons several times though. Also I with there was more variety in the testing and practice. An exercise where the student is given a completely new sentence that they have to give back in Italian would be really helpful.
I found the 'rocket record' function very useful once I had worked out how to keep the recording function in play (changed my search engine to google chrome from firefox as the flashplayer kept crashing. I love the fact that the lessons go straight into practising sentences and phrases in French, now I just have to be disciplined enough to do a little everyday.
I found the first level excellent. Both presenters were extremely clear. I'm on to the intermediate course now though and finding it much tougher. It's the same female presenter and she's excellent, but the male presenter in this course is really difficult to understand, pronouncing words considerably differently from the original. They also leave way too little time to repeat the phrases in this one on the first attempt. The second seems to be ok. I've timed the first and in a lot of cases they leave less time than it took for them to say it, so hopeless for me as a beginner! A bit pricey, but overall it seems to be working.
Rocket Italian — London , United Kingdom
It took me quite a long time to decide to take the plunge and buy a language course. Ive only ever tried free apps like Duolingo which is also a good program. But i can tell you Rocket Italian so far has exceeded my expectation. I have just finished the first section. I have become quite addicted to the program. The numerous forms of self testing really does help it stick. Im not perfect and I did have to rerun the last two sessions three times for it to stick but believe me. Doing this has helped me a lot better than any of the free apps I have used. Long may it continue as I progress through the lessons. I agree with comments about the fact that some times quite rarely the recording went odd. Bit a quick stop and replay solves this. It doesnt happen often.
In short Im loving it at the moment. Not sure about when it gets harder though. Give it a go!!
