Rocket French — United States
This course is challenging, especially trying to keep up with the speaker's pace (no way, yet).
Memorizing the dialogs reminds me of language school days where we had to memorize dialogs daily - very challenging!
It takes you step by step. You can start and stop, review and rewind on areas you need help with. It is vey helpful. They speak slowly and clearly so it can be understood but not so slowly that it becomes frustrating. I listen to it when I run in the mornings or am driving. If I go a long period of not studying, it still comes back to me. When practicing I verbally say the words out loud which helps a great deal. Great program.

Rocket French — United States
I completed all French lessons from the most popular online language learning course. When I finished, I couldn't carry on a conversation. I chatted with another student online who had taken the same classes, and he told me not to become discouraged. He went through the lessons three times before he became comfortable. That shouldn't be necessary. I decided to try Rocket French instead. In a few days, I was able to start speaking simple and useful sentences! This may be a matter of learning style; different people learn differently, but there is no question that Rocket French is better for me. The other learning program is total immersion with no explanations in English. Simple things like "de le" is "du" is something I had to figure out, whereas Rocket French explains that and it's so much easier. There is so much conversational practice in French that I don't feel that I'm missing out by reading explanations in English. I leave for Paris in a few weeks, and I already know so much more than I did a week ago! Today I will complete Module 1 and over the weekend I hope to finish Module 2. Making such quick progress has made me obsessed! By the time I go, I expect to be comfortable ordering food in a restaurant, shopping, and meeting new people in French! Of course I can't become proficient in such a short time, but French people I've spoken with are very patient when we try to learn. Merci beaucoup Rocket French!

I have just started learning French by Rocket Languages. It's very good experience to learn and easy to understand. All the exercises are meaningful and joyful. both of you are giving good explanations. I really love this course and recommend to my friends.

The course structure enables learner to advance at his or her own pace. Sometimes the sentences are too long and the pronunciation too difficult to hear - even though my hearing is excellent. When I do these activities in Rocket Korean and upon listening to Pimsleur Korean in my car, I find that the Korean sound system to be more challenging than the sound system in most other languages. Perhaps being able to hear sounds at a slower pace would benefit me until I know more about how to enunciate the sounds as a Korean speaker does.
While I use the Chrome browser as directed, I must say - "All that glitters is not chrome!" Sometimes the system slows down and requires that I log out and log back on. This is a technical issue more with Chrome than with Rocket Korean.
Rocket French — Temagog
From the moment i decided to look into learning a new language for my future, i wanted a way to learn a language without the pressure of my current and changing lifestyle. When i came across the Rocket French lesson, looked into it to find that i can learn at my own pace and even take it with me to learn on the go if i find time. This will be a great help to me and anyone else that travels often. I also know that if i am too busy then i can come back to the site at any time even years from now and still pick up from where i left off. This is why i chose Rocket French and have stuck with it since and i think you could benefit from it too. It is the best that i have found from searching the internet.
good lessons, interactive. the listen back facility was useful. the lessons were on appropriate subjects, and started in a very easy to understand way. the quiz questions were useful, and gave you a good idea of your progress. the course seems like reasonable value, although I suspect I will end up paying more for further lessons with premium plus package, since this only covers basic material.
I am enjoying the teaching techniques of the Rockets languages Course. I also like the fact that I can say the word(s) after they say it in the lessons. I believe this technique will help me learn to speak Spanish at a faster rate.

I like the audio and the repetition. I want to be able to hear and understand Spanish, not just read it. That is true of most people that learn a second language. Rocket Spanish puts more emphasis on listening and speaking than Rosetta Stone. The points system is also great because it encourages you to do more each day to earn more points.
