My name is Phyllis Bernius and I'm 66 years old. Working with our Spanish Church they call me Felisa, here in Amarillo, TX. I can see why it is important that I quickly learn to speak, write, and understand the Spanish language. I ordered the Rocket Spanish Program because an Internet review site said it was the best program.

I like the style and way the lessons are presented, such as seeing the lesson in print and then listening to the audio to check the pronunciation and accent of the words. By using my Spanish with the Hispanic people we are able to understand each other more each time.

Several years ago I visited Ecuador. It was frustrating not to be able to speak with them in their language. I hope soon to be able to go to Guatemala, (my Spanish Pastor and family are from Guatemala) and I would like to be able to communicate with them and their family and friends while I'm there in their own language of Spanish. I want to express my appreciation to you for your help, support and Rocket Spanish.

This is a great learning experience. I am only on the first lesson, but I believe it will really help me learn Spanish at a fraction of the cost of other self-teaching lessons. My wife and daughters have learned Spanish in school and be traveling in Mexico and Spain. I am needing to catch up with them. I am seriously considering buying additional courses for my wife in other languages.

Rocket Spanish is definitely the easiest way to learn Spanish. It's a big help for me, now I can understand my customers when they speak Spanish. They're all amazed because they all know that a few months ago I couldn't understand a word. I'm glad I've chosen the right program on the right time. I'm sure that Rocket Spanish will always be a number 1 selling program because it's a unique method of teaching a foreign language. Thank you Mauricio.
