Rocket Spanish — Glendale, CA
I have used other "popular" language learning software products in the past and they pale in comparison to the quality and depth of Rocket Languages. I particularly like the cultural immersion components. This product rocks!!!
Rocket Spanish — Mexico
Platico en español todos los dias! I started using Rocket Spanish about 7 years ago, when I spoke almost no Spanish. I first visited México in 2007, with maybe 10 words. Thanks to Rocket Spanish, I was able to move to México and I can now speak with people every day. I especially liked being able to practice in my car, so I could dedicate some time every day and focus on the content, without worrying what I sounded like. I now read and dream in Spanish! Thanks for a great product!

I decided to try Rocket Spanish because I wanted to learn some Spanish before a trip to Ecuador. I just returned, and the Spanish I learned with Rocket Spanish was not only extremely helpful, it made my trip so much more fun.
I really liked the full audio transcipts for the lessons that I could listen to anywhere (like when running, driving), then work on the remaining lesson pieces when I had time. It's great that the lessons are based on useful situations, and not just piles of random phrases. On my trip I was able to talk to people, order food, understand directions, and flight information. At the airport the attendant asked us about tickets and carry on luggage. She spoke English but I was able to talk with her in Spanish instead. Possibly the best part is that with Rocket Spanish pronunciation practice, people were able to understand me. Going to continue with Rocket Spanish, and keep working on those "rr's"! We are already planning another trip to Ecuador, and one to Spain. I tried some other programs, and I believe this is the best one you can buy. Thanks Rocket Spanish!
Rocket languages really gave me the tools to succeed with my new language. It brought me to a level where I was finally comfortable speaking with native speakers and I was able to take off on my own after that. I highly recommend Rocket Languages to all my friends trying to learn a new language. Learning with this system felt practically effortless.

I spent three months in "immersion" in Mexico being frustrated by my progress in classes and one-on-one tutoring. So, I embarked on a concentrated self-guided journey to find better online learning resources ... I found a lot of good ones, some even very good but the more I learned, the more I was frustrated by not finding a site that put everything together. I wanted a road map!
Then I found Rocket Spanish which is absolutely brilliant and offers everything I was looking for. Now, instead of trying to create my own map, I can spend my time studying, testing myself, listening, speaking, writing, building vocabulary, absorbing grammar, perfecting my pronunciation ... all in an enjoyable, supportive environment. Too many people fail in their language efforts (I know ... I did for 25 years!). Rocket Spanish can help everyone reach their goals, whether they just want to have a few phrases to make travel more interesting or want to read Pablo Neruda in the original. This is the best deal I know of for any price ... and that it is so reasonable just makes it that much better.
Rocket Spanish — United States
Hello. I was born in the United States so my first language is English. Currently I’m extremely fluent in Spanish and Italian. I’ll elaborate on that later. I retired in 2008. In December of 2009 it was decided to purchase Rocket Spanish for myself as a Christmas present. Only Premium, Premium Plus and Platinum were available at that time so all 3 levels were purchased. I had no prior language training during life and no experience talking to others in any language except English. Rocket Spanish was downloaded to an iPod as part of my New Year resolution. I practiced most days while exercising and repeating everything aloud. Everything was finished multiple times that was contained in the Premium or first level in March. The entire level was basically memorized from repeating it so many times. The beginning of April 2010 I went to Panama on vacation for 3 weeks by myself. I didn’t get an interpreter and just went for it and made my way around much of the country by myself taking local bus transportation. The reality was for 4 days I was like “aaaaa”, then suddenly my brain said oh apparently you’re serious and started working without any problem speaking the Spanish I learned in the Premium course. I only spoke aloud to myself previously and never spoke with anyone in Spanish prior to landing in the country of Panama. After returning from Panama in late April 2010 I repeated the Premium level one course then went off with a vengeance to learn levels two and three. After completing all the Rocket Spanish Levels numerous times Penton’s VocabuLearn audio series of 3 levels totaling 4500 words was used plus Penton’s Spanish Verbs 101. As of February 2018 I’ve been in every Spanish speaking country in Central and South America plus Spain totaling just over 28 months of total vacation time between my 23 trips. The Patagonia area was a great get away as I hung out with and met all kinds of interesting folks. After all this I then decided to learn Italian before visiting Europe for the first time so all 3 levels of Rocket Italian was purchased in November 2014. All 3 levels were completed multiple times by June 2015. So in July 2015 I boarded a plane and flew to Italy for the first time. Spent 3 months there on vacation and visited Spain also for 2 weeks during that trip. Many people in Italy speak some English but it sure was nice to not have to or have others think I was from a Spanish speaking country because at times you may inadvertently use a word from another language while conversing. Thus far I’ve spent a total of 7 months in Italy between my 4 trips which takes me to February 2018. That’s all I know and it sure beat sitting on the couch thinking about traveling abroad.
I compared multiple computer courses for learning Spanish. Rocket was the only one that combined pronunciation, conversation, reading, writing, and grammar into one solution. So far, I love the way the lessons work. There is so much content and I haven't even started looking at all the resources such as dictionaries and cultural information.

I absolutely love Rocket Language System. I wish I could be on it more but work prevails most of the time. I love the way the process tests you not only on your memory but also on your enunciation of the language. Many times my intonation is not what it should be and the system catches it. Thank you Rocket Language!
Rocket Spanish is Awesome. I went from speaking a few words to being able to hold a conversation. My Latin friends are impressed at how well I communicate. Rocket Spanish is simply Amazing!!! The Lessons are fun, effective, and never get old. Rocket Spanish gets two thumbs up
Rocket Spanish — Florida
I have just finished my Free Trial. During this period, I also tried several other competitor free trials, and used all of the comparing the similarities and differences. *Rosetta Stone was easily dismissed as I did not think they did well with phrase translations, but only focused on the single word. * There were a couple others, that were just too expensive, so that was an easy "No". * Spanishpod101 was very similar to RocketSpanish, but did not have the progress dashboard, and quite frankly, they had more unnecessary humor and comments in some of their dialogs that were not relative to the language learning. * Rocket Spanish was more geared to the learner. They keep encouraging routine practice, and the dashboard monitors your progress. Breaking down words into exact pronunciation has really helped me, and I only had the free trial !!! In summary, Rocket Spanish, in my opinion was the best language course for me at the best price. I would definitely recommend to a friend. Special Thanks to Margaret G. at Rocket Spanish Customer Support for answering all my questions and really REALLY helping me out :-)
