When to start using Premium

AlexM April 29, 2010, 11:57 pm
Hi,
I just purchased Premium. Before that, I have been working on the Rocket Spanish lessons that have been emailed to me. I just finished part 40. I have waiting in my inbox up to part 53. I have two questions. How many more parts are there, and should I finish all those before starting this premium program? I think I will get confused if I try to do both at one time.
Thanks,
Alex

Hola Alex. Bienvenido al foro. I'm a little confused by what you mean by "Premium." Right now, in the Member Area, there are three levels of Rocket Spanish: Premium, Premium Plus, and Platinum. If you've already done 40 lessons, it sounds as if you're working on what is now called Premium Plus. Could you have meant "Platinum" when you said you had just bought "Premium"? Can you describe the contents of lesson 40? That might help clarify things.

Wow, thanks very much, Alex, for the helpful link. I wasn't familiar with the newsletters. They seem to provide a lot of information, and especially a lot of vocabulary. From a quick glance, I'd say that if you've gone through 40 newsletters, you're more than ready for Premium, which is the first of the three levels of the Rocket Spanish program. Indeed, my concern would be that you may already know some of the material there, though probably not most of it.

To give you an idea of what the Premium level contains, I've copied the chapter titles from two of the ten sections of Premium. Here's the first section (most sections are divided into two parts; the "Language and Culture" part covers more grammar and cultural info):

Wow, thanks very much, Alex, for the helpful link. I wasn't familiar with the newsletters. They seem to provide a lot of information, and especially a lot of vocabulary.

Indeed, my concern would be that you may already know some of the material there, though probably not most of it.

To give you an idea of what the Premium level contains, I've copied the chapter titles from two of the ten sections of Premium. Here's the first section (most sections are divided into two parts; the "Language and Culture" part covers more grammar and cultural info):
1.1 Introductions
1.2 Introductions Expanded
1.3 The Perfect Coffee
1.4 Taking a Photo
1.5 What Do you do for a Living?
1.6 Family Status
1.7 Traveling on Schedule

Language and Culture
1.8 How to Pronounce Spanish Words
1.9 People, Places, and Things
1.10 Using "The" and "A"
1.11 Talking about You, He, and We
1.12 "To Be" Part 1: The Verb SER
1.13 Numbers
1.14 Telling the Time

And here are the chapter titles from section 6:
6.1 Speak Like an Expert
6.2 Pastimes
6.3 End of Vacation

Language and Culture
6.4 Talking about What You Know: SABER and CONOCER
6.5 Talking about What You Like, Love, and Lack
6.6 Actions You Perform on Yourself: Reflexive Verbs

I'm sure you're ready for Premium. If you feel you already know even the material in section 6, you may want to consult with Mauricio about whether you're ready for Rocket Spanish's second level, Premium Plus. My guess is that you'd benefit from starting with Premium, even if some of it reviews material you already know.

I hope this helps.

My favorite section was the Premium Plus level, and it really advanced from the Premium level.
Now I'm at the end of the Platinum level, and while it is equally as much fun, it just requires more work.

Work through everything you possible can! There is a LOT of suff on this site.

Hola! I loved Premium so much, I got Premium Plus. It is a great program. I love the new addition of the writing section on the test. It gives another way to reinforce the vocabulary. I have also experienced unbelievably good customer service whenever I have asked a question.
We started the lessons before going to Ecuador, and were able to get by with the help of the wonderful people there who appreciated our efforts Looking forward to the next trip there after Premium Plus (and Platinum!)

Mucho gracias!!

Did you find that you were learning the same pronunciation from Rocket languages when you went to Ecuador? Were there any differences in pronunciation from what you learned in the Spanish Rocket Languages?

Diane-L21 April 19, 2014, 2:05 am
We found that much of the pronunciation was the same, or at least very close. The double l is pronounce more as y. There are definitely different dialects with their own unique changes, but overall I found I could understand most of what they were saying (at least within the confines of my limited vocabulary at that point).
Great question!!!!
