Today we have a post brought to you by the letter R:
1. R is for Russian
2. R is for Reviews
First of all, Russian.
We've just started work on the newest addition to the Rocket Languages suite of languages, Rocket Russian.
This time around we're looking at doing things a little differently.
In other courses the Interactive Audio Lessons have been front and center as the main teaching tool. For Rocket Russian we're unleashing the Travelogue instead, where you follow a couple on their visit to Russia. Each lesson gives you the chance to see the Russian language used in a number of different situations, from arriving at the airport, finding your luggage, and dealing with customs, to using public transport, seeing the sights, and shopping.
So, instead of looking at one conversation in depth each lesson, you get to listen to a range of different realistic conversations. And all of these conversations will take advantage of the learning power of Play it! and the other Testing tools.
We're really excited about Rocket Russian. If you're interested in finding out how things are progressing you can join our mailing list. Every week or two you'll be updated on where we're up to, and, once it's all ready to launch, you'll get a special Early Bird deal.
You can join the mailing list here.
Secondly, I'm pleased to announce that we recently ticked over our one thousandth review of Rocket Languages courses.
That means that over a thousand people have now taken the time to head on over to our reviews page and tell us just what they think of us. Stuff like this:
Rocket Languages is a fun way to learn. Hearing it in actual conversation and learning tidbits about it is very helpful. I also like the typing and talking. Having so many ways to practice it makes it stick in your head better.

After numerous app downloads and other spanish teaching techniques I finally found something that I'm seeing progress with, Rocket Spanish. RS is much more thorough than the app approach to learning, with building blocks of real life sentences and structure. I've improved my dialect and most importantly my "ear" for spanish has improved.

It's really pleasing to see that over 82% of reviewers give us 5 stars, and over 96% give us 4 or 5 stars. We must be doing something right.

And while I'm on the subject of reviews, if you love Rocket Languages get on over to our Facebook page, review us, and give us some stars. Every little bit helps make your favorite language learning team into the world's favorite language learning team...
Happy language learning,
Jason and the team at Rocket Languages.
