I have spent hours comparing the top language software programs. I am convinced that I will learn Spanish more quickly with Rocket than any other program. Many of the other programs do not include grammar, and I believe this is essential to learning the language well. I am thoroughly enjoying the program and started speaking Spanish immediately.

An excellent system where each lesson builds on past lessons. Having one voice (Mauricio) always trigger you to repeat what he says works very well, at least for me. The material covered is very useful, every day language. The course helped me very much in preparing for a 500 mile walk across Spain.
