Italian Feedback and Comments

If you have some questions or want to share some feedback about your course, there’s a good chance a fellow learner has had the same idea! You can take a look at some of the latest posts to see if your question has already been answered, or share your thoughts with the Rocket Italian teachers and learners by posting your comments at the bottom of the page.


Hi 1. Request for Enhancement: If you get the answer wrong four times, could you display the correct answer - very frustrating otherwise. 2. I am struggling to understand why "they understood" (perfect) does not translate correctly as "hanno capito" Regards Bob Black

Quizes Need Improvement.

Hi. When in the "quiz" section, after you do it once when you reset you should ask a DIFFERENT set of questions. It also would be better if they were more than 5 questions and a little more challenging.

Conversation at begining of Premium Plus lessons

I enjoy the quick comments in Italian at the begining of each Premium Plus lesson. Most times, by using multiple rewinds, I can understand the gist of what's being said but it sure would be nice to have a transcript in both English & Italian.
