The mobile app for the iphone is very useful for me. I'm able to use it during the day, and in the car on my way home from work. Most of the time I am not able to sit at my computer until late in the evening, and by that time I'm too tired to concentrate on my Spanish learning. The iphone app makes all the difference for me.

Hola!

I am enjoying my Spanish lessons I copied from Rocket Spanish on CD. As of now, I commute to work around 45 minutes everyday one way. It's great to just play a CD again and again until I feel comfortable moving to the next step. Plus, I have a commuter who was not at all interested in learning Spanish, but found himself picking the language up while I play the CD's for myself.

I work with a lot of Spanish speaking people and they are very supportive and helpful if I happen to have a question. Rocket Spanish is a great way to learn and I have no regrets at all purchasing it. It's is so much fun learning this fun language and now I found myself trying to listen in on others talking to see how I am coming along. Thank you very much!
