2 ways the letter R will make your day

jason-oxenham-ceo May 1, 2014, 8:18 pm

Hi everyone

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.

And this:

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.

To see more reviews, or add one of your own, visit our reviews page.

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.

I will be curious to see this new dialog approach that you are doing for Russian. Will you be adding this to any of the existing languages?

The more testing the better. If you include some additional dialogs using vocabulary up to that section and have "Play It" available to drill on it, that will be good.

Please consider developing a Rocket Chinese Platinum.

Hi Robert - If Russian is well received in this format then we may well roll out the new approach to other languages. Because of the extensive development time, if we did develop it for other courses, then it would be as a separate product. 

Unfortunately there are no plans for a Platinum Mandarin Chinese course as yet.

This is excellent news. Do you know if it will be available on the library edition? I am currently accessing RL through my public library.

Thanks!

Hi Alex - No decision has been made around that just yet. And just FYI, most Library editions have about half the content of the full courses.
