I decided to take the A1 and A2 exams at the Goethe Institut to see how my German was progressing. I was pretty sure I would pass the A1 but wasn't sure about the A2. I'm happy to report that I passed both! I received a "Sehr gut" note for the A1 (between 90 and 100 out of 100) and a "gut" for the A2 (between 80 and 90). This is after about a year using a combination of Rocket German for lessons and Anki for flashcards (http://ankisrs.net/), as well as occasional practice speaking with my husband (a non-native but very competent speaker). I also did a couple of the practice exams the Goethe Institut has online (http://www.goethe.de/lrn/prj/pba/bes/sd2/mat/enindex.htm). Thanks for creating this product! I'll be trying the B1 next time the test is offered, which should be about six months from now. I hope this is encouraging to anyone who is using Rocket Languages (and Rocket German in particular). It's certainly been working for me.
Passed the A1 and A2 exams
