Spanish - 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 Spanish teachers and learners by posting your comments at the bottom of the page.
When I try to listen to the complete lessons, there's no volume. I don't hear anything, and the volume control device is stuck on low -- I can't move it. I hope this is something that can be fixed at your end.

Hi, I am starting to see Spanish, and I guess other language websites offer virtual reality as a teaching option, especially for role play and getting conversational. Does Rocket have any such plans to introduce this technology? Thanks Liam
