Rocket Arabic — United States
Unfortunately, this software does not allow me to become fluent, as this only makes you an "intermediate" speaker with a premium level of 1 compared to others who have 3. The software for Arabic really needs some more information on writing the language, as it is by far the hardest lessons to learn. I have studied it for hours and still, I do not understand one bit the Arabic alphabet and how to write in Arabic. Other than that this is this software is above average that allows you to learn at your own pace. I also enjoy that I can use this software forever for only %150.
Rocket German — China
I just went through the introduction, the only problem I had would be there's no spelling in the conversation. If I would be listening to this program without pre-study the contents, it's hard to remember the sentence afterwards.
I am exploring rocket chinese, I miss some examples of practice diffent conversation situations and also the quiz is static, when you repeat the quiz is very easy to answer. The rocket review is very good, but should be also dinamic. Anyway I try many chinese courses and this one is the one that I feel more confortable for the moment.

I am having trouble getting the accent right. This is impeding my progress. I need to re-watch, read and listen many times and still my accent is terrible. This is a lot more work than I expected, but I will plug onward.
I have tried rosetta stone live mocha and berlitz. It is simple easy cost effective method of learning spanish. i have tried other software. This is great learning tool. i have tried arabic language course before. that was also good. I can learn on my pace flex schedule.

Rocket Japanese — Kentucky , United States
I am hoping that within a year of this program I will be able to Speak Japanese to my co workers. Its much better than Rosetta Stone. I just wish this program explained at very beginning why certain words are used in the sentence like ga, wa, no, imasu, desu and masu so it can be applied instead of just memorized.
Moderators note: We agree! There is a new lesson on this topic being created. It will be added to the course soon!
Rocket Spanish — Rancho Palos Verdes,CA , United States
The lessons are good, but I'm finding the speaking exercises very frustrating. The voice recognition does not work very well. The exercises require repeating over and over because the voice recognition is so poor. I'm not saying my pronunciation is great or anything, but it isn't as bad as the software shows. It slows down the lesson and makes it a drag.
Rocket French — United States
I am learning French. The program is good but far from perfect. There are problems with voice recognition. Level 1, Chapter 5 has a summary test that tests words that have never been introduced. Who proofs this stuff? One new word, 'manquer', translation "miss". What kind of miss? The "stories" are usually 25 minutes long and of little value. Customer support? Virtually nonexistent. During weekday normal hours there is a help desk, when you complain about something she will refer to IT department. IT department has a perfect record of never getting back to me so I quit writing notes to improve the course. The French course is good but could be much better if Rocket had interest in improving.
