I have been using Rocket Languages to learn Spanish but decided I wanted to delve into another language. I started the French course right after the new 2013 edition and have absolutely fell in love with the interface. It has made learning another language very easy and I am definitely looking forward to learning more languages once I complete my Spanish and French courses.

Rocket Spanish was just what I needed. I wanted a Spanish course online that I could take whenever I could fit it into my schedule. I did not want to take a college class where you receive a grade or have to go into a learning center. The lessons are interactive and conversational Spanish is used. I am able to learn phrases people actually use in Spanish instead of tedious conjugations and vocab words. Overall a great program for a busy body.
