First of All, Who am I?

Hola, my name’s Mauricio Evlampieff, and I’m the host of Rocket Spanish. I come from the beautiful country of Chile, which means Spanish is my native language. That also means that I know just how hard it can be to learn a new language, because I’ve been there learning English. Together with my English speaking colleague, Amy, I want to help you to speak and understand Spanish while cutting your learning time in half.

I’ve travelled the world over and have found that languages are a great way to meet people and discover new things. I really want to make your Spanish learning experience rewarding and fun!

My goal, just like Rocket Languages’, is to help you reach your goal.

Why the Rocket Express Learning System®?

If you want to learn to express yourself a new language, and do it at express pace, then the Rocket Express Learning System is just what you need.

By combining three scientifically proven theories of learning, and taking advantage of advances in e-learning and technology, the team at Rocket Languages have a developed an effective way for you to speak and understand the language you've always loved, and retain it forever.

It begins with George A. Miller's idea of 'chunking', breaking down big difficult content into small easy parts.

Then there's Dr Stephen Krashen's theory that the best way to learn a language is in a low pressure environment with supportive native speakers who are prepared to give honest accurate feedback.

Finally, Neil Fleming found that there are four main ways that people learn:

  • Visually - they see it
  • Aurally - they hear it
  • Reading/Writing
  • Kinesthetically - they do it

When you combine these three complimentary theories with a team that is at the cutting edge of e-learning technology, you get a system that is guaranteed to have you speaking and understanding your new favorite language in no time at all.

How to Understand Spoken Spanish with Testing

Most of our Spanish lessons take advantage of Testing, our exclusive testing tool. Testing has three testing components, Hear It Say It!, Write It!, and Know It! Plus the multi-choice Quiz.

1. Hear it Say it!

Training your ear for Spanish can be one of the things that Spanish learners find the hardest to master. That’s why we came up with Hear It Say It!

Here’s how Hear lt Say It! works. A randomly selected audio track from within each lesson is played. After listening to the track you’re prompted to record yourself saying the word, compare the way you say it to the Spanish speaker, and rate how well you understand what the speaker was saying. A very powerful tool to tune your ear to spoken Spanish!

2. Write it!

It's one thing being able to pronounce Spanish words correctly, it's quite another figuring out how those sounds turn into written words.

Write It! is the self-testing tool that lets you find out how well developed your Spanish ear really is. Just listen to the native speaker saying a word or phrase, then try to write it correctly in the space provided. There's a special character keyboard available if you need it, so you can get it exactly right.

When you're done click reveal, and you get to see how well you did, and get a rating for that word or phrase.

3. Know it!

Now, all the training in the world won’t help you if someone is talking to you in Spanish and your mind freezes when it’s your turn to speak! That’s why we developed Know It! The self-testing tool that really puts you on the spot!

Know It! pulls randomly selected English words and phrases out of each lesson and prompts you to record yourself saying the Spanish translation, compare yourself to the Spanish speaker, and then rate how well you did! You really need to know your stuff for this one but the benefits are huge in maximizing how quickly you can come up with the right thing to say when someone is speaking Spanish to you!
