Rocket Japanese — Sarajevo , Bosnia and Herzegovina
Hello, I am an English teacher but can speak 4 other foreign languages and started learning Japanese a few years ago. I studied it with Teach yourself Japanese, Japanese for Busy People and Take off in Japanese. Then I tried Rocket Japanese and I can say Rocket Japanese is the best programme I have ever seen. Not only is it very creative but very practical and applicable, too. Modern tools and features make it even more interesting, in particular for youngsters! Sayaka as our guide is excellent as well as Mauricio and Amy for Spanish. What I like most about Rocket Languages is that there is always a dash, a touch of culture and customs as well as nuances in different countries (for Spanish). I have already recommended Rocket Languages to several friends of mine. Last but not least, I wish all the teams of Rocket Languages success in the future work-I am sure you will grant us with some new, interesting improvements!

Rocket Arabic — Dubai
The Rocket Languages is an amazing tool. I signed up for the Arabic course and although I slip behind in the course work (due only to my own laziness) the regular weekly e-mails do make a difference by reminding me of my desire to learn this language. Awesome product.
Rocket Japanese is amazing. Since it includes interactive audio lessons, I find it much easier compared to going to the bookstore and buy a book with all this stuff. Because of this audio lessons I find it easier to pronounce Japanese words and I can also assure that you will learn the correct pronunciation using this interactive audio lessons since one of the hosts is a native Japanese speaker. Another thing I liked about it is you can download the audio file and also the pdf file that goes with it, and you can study the language offline. There are also games which you can play that serves as a review or a test for you which is really fun to do. Its set up of how to learn this language is not boring. Its really fun to learn a language with the interactive audio lessons. It seems like you are having a one on one lesson with a friend who is a native speaker of the language you are trying to learn. And I really admire Sayaka and Kenny since they always sound so enthusiastic to teach Japanese language in every audio lessons.
Being a Jrock fan I think Rocket Japanese is one of the reasons why I am now able to communicate to other fans in a better way. And also, now I can understand some lyrics from the Jrock songs I'm listening to without any translations. Thanks Rocket Japanese!
So far so good! I feel as if I'm back in school learning espanol! I cannot wait to try and speak to my new Costa Rican friends!! If I wasn't already excited, now I'm feeling a rad bit for confident with some new Spanish vocabulary!!
Rocket Spanish — Taunton , United Kingdom
Great course and I have learnt a great deal. My only negative comment is that the course so far (nearly finished level 1) does not give enough teaching on putting the language together, rather it teaches phrases. I am trying to learn the language as I now live in Spain and trying to learn the language.
Rocket Spanish — United States
I use the audio lessons most. Haven't ever down loaded the documents. Too huge. Wish it was in book form and came with the program. I would have paid a little extra for that option I also like the girl. It is easier to understand her when she speaks spanish as she is not as fast as the native speakers.
Rocket Russian — United States
Although quite new to this program, already I have learned much more than from a competitor. The learning is fun, repetitive (which is much needed!) and the lessons are given in a variety of settings which helps to solidify what I'm learning. When I have found it necessary to contact Customer Service, I have been very happy with the quick, polite and thorough responses.
Rocket Arabic — Pinerolo
I think it's a very good language tool. Unfortunately I'm an old man and my memory is going away. Nevertheless I enjoy it very much and hope I'll get great personal satisfactions studying the Rocket Arabic!
About the actual results, much shall depend, naturally, on the performance of my old brain.
Rocket Hindi — United States
I chose to try the Rocket Language course (Hindi) because of its lower price in comparison to its competitors and the good reviews that it has received. However, I have had many frustrations in using the course. Things that have been frustrating, include, primarily: inaccuracies in spelling, inaccuracies in grading exercises and waiting for weeks to get responses to e-mails. Because I paid less for this course than many others on the market my disappointment has been moderated somewhat.
Your other languages may merit higher marks, which may be the reason this product gained the better reviews which you reference in your promotional material. I would find it difficult to substantiate their claims based upon the Hindi course alone. I thought maybe this is a sort of Beta software where you are still trying to work the bugs out. At least that may be the case for the Hindi course. I might have done more to help you with pointing out the errors except your response time for the few times I tried was pitifully slow. On the positive side: I have made some genuine progress. I do appreciate the improvements that have been made since starting the course. The exercises (Hear it, Write it, Know it) are for me the strongest aspect of the course. Not having a time limit is also generous on your part. Hopefully, you will continue to make improvements. Some suggestions for further improvement: access to greater dictionary resources and more thorough grammar resources. Perhaps you could provide access to a good online Hindi-English dictionary?
Rocket Hindi — Oslo
It is a very good web site if you have learned some grammar before. The grammar explanations will not we good enough for a beginner, but for someone who wants to repeat and strengthen her oral knowledge is is great.
