We take you to the heart of the Chinese language and give you everything you need to understand the language and the culture like a local.
The Chinese language can be yours for life, and we believe your Chinese course should be too. With Rocket Chinese, you can come back in a month, a year or even a decade and still have full access to your courses. You'll also get all of the updates and improvements that we make for free!
If you can pronounce words Chinese correctly, then you know you'll be understood by the locals - which is why we teach you to talk just like they do. With Rocket Chinese, you can check your pronunciation using our state-of-the-art voice recognition system and listen to thousands of useful words and phrases recorded by real Chinese speakers.
Many new language learners feel nervous about talking to native speakers, so we've created the perfect activity to address this problem. It lets you practice both sides of common Chinese conversations in a comfortable, stress-free environment, so that you're ready to respond when you're out in the real world.
You'll put a lot of time into learning Chinese, so we make sure you can remember it all by including fun and engaging activities in every lesson. These activities use algorithms to identify where you're having trouble and help you practice problematic words and phrases until they stick.
Knowing a few set phrases in Chinese can be helpful, but will only get you so far in real-life situations. We take you step by step through how the language works so that you can build sentences on your own and actually take part in conversations.
When you first hear someone speak in Chinese, you may find it hard to make out even a single word. Rocket Chinese comes with tons of downloadable audio tracks that train your ear to the Chinese language.
Chinese comes with the added challenge of having its own unique writing system, which can make even simple tasks like reading street signs difficult for learners. That's why we include a whole series of lessons devoted to teaching you how this writing system works and how to write the characters yourself.
Communicating and connecting with people in another language isn't just about using proper grammar - it's also about understanding another culture. We get you ready for this with lessons on everything from greetings and foods to holidays and local customs in China.
A lot of other courses out there take a cookie-cutter approach, using the same template for every language they teach. At Rocket Languages, we understand that no two languages are exactly alike! That's why we've carefully crafted Rocket Chinese to include what's practical, relevant, and useful for the language you are learning.
Motivation is key to learning a language, so we make sure to provide you with a wide array of motivational tools and techniques. They'll keep your interest up and your focus sharp so you can meet your goals and make better progress.
