Rocket Spanish — palm coast
I have tried other ways and other programs to learn Spanish,and I find Rocket Spanish is the most engaging and the most fun way of learning the language.I LOVE MY ROCKET SPANISH.
Rocket Korean — United States
I've enjoyed learning Spanish with Rocket Languages, but delving into Korean proved to be unexpected challenging. Any Korean teaching material that starts from the beginner level should include lessons on Hangul, but that's lacking in Rocket Language Korean. Fine, I taught myself Hangul using other sources. Not being familiar with Asian languages in general, Korean was much harder for me to pronounce and speak quickly. The speaking exercises are way too demanding in terms of accuracy of pronunciation and the speed at which you have to respond and often my responses get truncated halfway because I'm trying to remember the exact wording. From the very first introductory lesson, there are a lot of more complicated phrases and vocab that get thrown in which are tested, and almost impossible for a beginner to get right. It's been a frustrating experience all around. I guess I'll stick to Romance languages, and use other materials to learn Korean.
Rocket Spanish — EL Reno OK , United States
Speaking in your target language I think is the key to success. The more you speak the faster you learn.
Rocket Languages has a test called Play It. It's where you in engage in a conversation with a native speaker. To me, that is my absolute favorite test. I have not seen anything like that anywhere. Rocket Languages has an amazing amount of resources and learning material to help you in your target language. Sadly, my Rocket Spanish is not working anymore. It worked flawlessly for a few weeks and now the audio just stops. I can't complete my learning, I can reload the page, but I can only make so far before it stops again. Technical support has not been able to resolve my issue. I have very limited use of the website. So I'm in the hunt for another language course. I've seen what's available and tried many, nothing tops Rocket Languages, so I will have to settle for second best. Moderators note: Customer support will be in touch again. We are sure the issue can be resolved.
Rocket Japanese — Estepona
Enjoy learning it, Very good because you can always return to difficult parts. Had to stop for a while because of moving my home, but it was easy to pick up. From now on, I'll regularly continue. The target is learning the language. Unfortunately, my computer does not allow voice recording. I hope that this does not influence the study results.
Rocket Spanish — Saitama , Japan
I am generally very happy with the spoken feedback and the quality of the instruction of Spanish.
Unfortunately often my mic fails to pick up my spoken answer correctly. I bought a special mic for my iPhone and I hope that the mic performance will improve. However, I need to review and practice hard points such as writing with the correct accent marks. Doing the harder parts of lessons several times is helpful. I am very pleased with being able to download lesson lectures. Then I can practice away from the computer. This is very helpful. One problematic lesson: In Module one of Rocket Spanish, there is one lesson that is poorly designed. Presently I am doing the alphabet. Why is there no spoken practice of the alphabet? Words are presented as a vocabulary list to be memorized. How useless. ! But there is no testing or practice of spelling which is the object of the lesson. This pointless presentation of the alphabet is unlike the quality of other lessons. I wish it could be redone. Also, in this lesson it is argued that the alphabet is related to learning the correct pronunciation of Spanish. How knowing the pronunciation of letters such as j, z, h, w is helpful for pronunciation totally escapes my understanding. Anyway, knowing how to spell is important, but this is not practiced in the lesson. What a waste! I have never received an answer to emails that I have sent concerning Rocket Spanish. It is amazing that I am even doing the lesson given the many problems that I have had getting it to work on my iPhone and computer.
Rocket Korean — New York , United States
Rocket Languages has interactive audio lessons that makes it easier and more fun to learn from. In addition, the reviews at the end are very helpful and different from any other program I've used. I have learned way more efficiently now with so much more to look forward too.

Disappointed with not being able to download on android, windows, or apple platforms. This defeats the purpose of my purchase - wanted to listen during work drive. Also app not allowing the voice option. Why browser version only?
Not able to take quiz on android app.
Rocket Hindi — telangana , India
it is OK with rocket Hindi langue. But it is limited . i.e., There are explaining some basics with good understanding. we will learn all the basic words, but if we stick to those words, we can manage Hindi, but we cant speak Hindi like native speaker.
we still have to learn other content and practice alot apart from the rocket Hindi material.
Rocket French — United States
I was very satisfied with Rocket French Intermediate, so I purchased the Travelogue. Unfortunately, the Travelogue was highly disappointing. It is of very limited value as a language learning tool, and its interest as a cultural document was modest at best. I can't imagine wanting to go through it more than once. Additionally, it is poorly recorded or edited, with the French dialogue for some reason sounding muffled. After a good initial experience with Rocket French, this course has soured me on the program.
