I've been a fan and user of Rocket Spanish for about three years now and love it! It makes learning a new language easier and a lot more fun than any other methods I've tried.

In fact, I'm just about to order Rocket French to prepare me for my trip to Paris coming up this summer.

Keep up the great work :)

My favorite thing about Rocket Spanish, it's been that it teaches you how to listen better, there is a lot of Spanish classes that teach you how to speak words, but they don't put them together the same way that the Rocket Spanish does. They don't teach you how to listen so that as you are learning you can pick out the words that you already understand, and make sense of the sentences. I've found that I have been able to understand and comprehend a lot more than I have with other lessons that I've had elsewhere. Thank you very much.

It is difficult to begin--there is no easy way to start learning right off the bat, one has to search for the book/lessons. Learning would be easier if you could click a button to take you to a lesson (the most recent), with links to all of the information you need to continue on. This way you can just click start and get back to learning.
