If you want to learn Spanish, this is your best choice. I did research on the internet to check on *competitor* and found this program.

I had come to a point where I really wanted to learn the language but had hesitated because of the cost. I was pleasantly surprised to find an excellent program which cost way less than the other touted programs. My reason for not studying Spanish had vanished.

I took four years of Spanish in High School forty years ago, but being unable to use it at the time I remembered very little of it. The course and all of its resources is bringing it back to me in a wonderful, easy and fun way. If you have taken Spanish in the past or have never learned it, you will be pleasantly surprised with the way in which it is presented.

I was a bit skeptical, but really wanted to gain the knowledge as I will be traveling in Mexico this Fall for two months, and perhaps retire there.

I have a full-time gardening business and have very little spare time. This program allows me to study at my own pace and when I have the time. I can study bit by bit at any time of the day or night instead of all at once. It really works in my busy life. I now feel very confident that I will be able to communicate with at least a minimal amount of conversation and knowledge of the language. I have only started the course, but there is so much more to learn and now I have the resources to do it.

I'm already starting to talk with others where I live that know Spanish and they're helping to teach me. It is only because I'm taking this course that I am able to understand and communicate with them.

The oral portion is very important to me because I will be able to speak so others will be able to understand me. In addition to practicing on the computer, I am also putting the lessons on my portable MP3 player so I can listen to it throughout the day and evening to practice and expose myself to it more.

When I talk to friends about the course, they are intrigued and say they have wanted to learn also, but are afraid they wouldn't be able to do it or don't have the time. I tell them to try the free 6 lessons and they will see how easy it is. Also I tell them about the money back guarantee and tell them there is nothing to lose.

I am so excited about getting back into the language, and see only improvement in the future.

Instructors are easy to understand to follow. Being able to go back over the material and compare to the tutor is very helpful to get the words right and the proper inflection where it's needed. Phrase finder is great for learning words and phrases of all sorts. Enjoying the experience!

I have been using the Rocket Spanish courses for a while now, and am just completing the second course (Rocket Spanish Premium Plus). My Spanish has progressed from being a total newbie, to being to converse freely with my friends and neighbors and understand (mostly) movies and TV shows on my local Spanish speaking channels.

The first course (Rocket Spanish Premium) is quite a good basic introduction, and through the use of short conversations and language and culture lessons teaches the basics of conversational Spanish and grammar in an easy to follow and fun format. I was actually rather surprised to learn how much I was learning without actually realizing it at the time. There are also a number of other tools available, games, reviews and now the new features of Rocket Record which really tend to speed along the learning process.

Now that I have almost completed the second course, I find that I really like this portion better. The stories and conversations between Mauricio, Amy and Carmen are entertaining, informative and funny. Even my wife (who is not taking the course) stops and laughs about the adventures of Mauricio. I am taking much more time with this second course, as I find that there is much more there to learn, and now that my Spanish has vastly improved I find many more little sayings, conversational tidbits, and idioms throughout each lesson that can be learned. I would highly recommend that anyone who has taken the Premium course to move on to the Premium Plus also.

Platinum is next for me, and peeking ahead a bit it looks to be even more interesting and informative, and I firmly believe that my Spanish will be further along than I could ever have dreamed upon my completion.

Were it only the three courses it would be WELL worth the low price, especially when compared to the other offerings out there. In addition to the courses, the pdf "books" which are included are invaluable. The "survival kits" included cover just about every area that I could possibly use, and can be printed out and put in a binder, or (like me) sent to your tablet. My course included a wonderful vocabulary game that I find improved my learning nearly 100 percent, and there are many other tools in the Rocket Spanish members area available to all students.

It probably seems that this is an advertisement for the courses, but I am just a very happy student who feels that he has gotten much more than what I expected in this course.
