Rocket Spanish — United States
Very nice interface with many opportunities to record yourself and play back to compare with the native speaker. I've enjoyed learning from the conversations, and also being able to practice participating in the conversations (playing the role of one person, then the other). The app for iPhone and iPad works well overall but has a few glitches with the voice recording function -- sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. The web browser interface for Google Chrome works perfectly. I am looking forward to continuing on in my lessons as I've only started module 2.

Honestly, I really enjoy the interactive component of the course. It not only allows you to engage with the language and therefore better understand it, but most importantly, it gets you ready for the conversational aspect of any language. Furthermore, I particularly appreciated the audio lessons which explain the pronunciations, their rationales, and their connection to their english equivalents. Finally, the written exercises are particularly helpful to get one's written and not simply oral skills up to par.
The one deterrent I have from the program is it's cost. Being a student, I don't have a particularly high budget and with competing programs such as Duolingo, it might be hard to justify the purchase. That being said, the trial thus far has given me a taste of the real package that is Rocket Languages. It truly is comprehensive and well developed. I truly hope that completing the entire program does make one somewhat proficient in the language as it is quite an expense. A final note has to be the aesthetics, design and appearance of the website. The site is polished, clean and well organized. It breads for a simple and user friendly experience. Very appealing and enticing to any user.

I've used Rocket before for another language. I'm very happy with it. Some things annoy me, for example, mistakes. Just in the first dialog, we are told that "Uno, due, tre" rhymes with "quattro , cinque, sei". But this almost undoes the lesson about pronunciation since 'tre' ends on a pure vowel 'e' and 'sei' ends on a diphthong 'ei'. They don't rhyme. Apart from the mistakes (and I'm hoping there aren't as many as the last time I used this program), I think it's one of the best available. And I do tend to be fussy.

The Rocket folks have the ability to spread their enthusiasm! I think they really love what they do..... their product is proof. The Rocket system is affordable and easy to use but best of all, it has quickly improved my Spanish.

Rocket Japanese — Amsterdam , Netherlands
I absolutely love Rocket Languages, or in my case Rocket Japanese! I’ve had an account since 2011 and I just love the way it enables you to actively practice speech even if you don’t have a person to practice with. Since learning Japanese to me is a hobby, it is something that gets put on hold more often than not, however whenever I want to get back into it I start with listening to Rocket Japanese audio lessons. It’s puts me right back in the action of the language, something that would be neither as easy nor as fun if I were just using a book. I do combine the Rocket course with a book for better grammar and more hands-on practice in addition to a Kanji book, as I prefer more exercises, but it would not go as smoothly without your lessons, which are enjoyable even after the so-manieth repeat. just want to add that I appreciate all the upgrades that you do :)

Rocket Languages is really good for someone who is wanting to begin learning a language fast and easy. It takes little time and you surely get a lot out of each lesson. And not only does it teach you the language, but it also teaches you different parts of the culture from where your language of choice is spoken. It's really amazing and I've already recommended to each of my friends.
I enjoy these lessons very much. They are easy to use and learn from. The annunciation, for the most part, is very understandable and easy to repeat after. I enjoy the quizzes and wish I had a microphone attached to my computer so I could record my own phrases.
Rocket Hindi — United Kingdom
It's a little simplistic at times - I like to delve further into grammar to understand why a phrase is as it is rather than just learning it by rote - but the practice has definitely made a difference to my understanding and it's good to have some structure to my learning , living in an area where I can't access any physical classes. The speaking and writing practice are most useful, and give me something I absolutely can't get from the more advanced text book I use in tandem with Rocket Hindi. I would consider signing up for another language if my financial situation improved - it's decent value for money.
Rocket Spanish — Halifax , Canada
I have only been using the program for a short time but so far I love it. Compared to other popular language programs I have used, Rocket is the best. The only thing I would like to see added that this program lacks is, reading material. Most of the other programs provide short stories that progress with you as you learn.
