I think a better job needs to be done editing the lessons. Anoche needs to be added to the sentence: Cenamos juntos y comimos una cena de comida Mexicana. in 9.1 to read we dined together last night. Also the definitions don't match the audio in survival kit: house. These are just a few examples I've run across in rocket Spanish that need fixing.

Unfortunately there are some errors. I think most of us catch them just like you do. It shows that you are paying attention and learning. I am sure we all hope they eventually get them fixed.

In the lesson The Wedding, covering the future tense of "ser", Carmen seems to be saying "será" for the first person, rather than "seré", and Amy and Carmen confirm this error when they go over all the endings for the verb "ser". Is this an error that should be corrected?

Despite my enjoyment using Rocket Spanish and as much as I have learned, I have to agree that nit-picky little errors need to corrected. Especially for someone relatively new like me, little errors like missing or misplaced accents can cause confusion. For example, in lesson 5.2, "¿A qúe hora..." is printed in the extra vocabulary section 4 times in a row, then the fifth time it appears as "¿Con qué...?" Thanks mostly to the new Write It feature, I am becoming much more aware of the importance of accents to denote different words. I spent quite a bit of research time here, and using Spanish Dictionary.com to figure out that the accent was misplaced in all but the last example, then verifying my assumption with my Spanish tutor. As Oscar says, finding these mistakes shows I am paying attention and learning. But at this point, learning a foreign language is challenging enough without being led astray by the lessons, which should be accurate enough so as not to require another source to get the right information. Sorry if I sound snarky about this; I continue to believe that Rocket Spanish will play a big part in helping me reach my goal of becoming conversant in Spanish. Dan

As a former language teacher, my first rule, before I ever taught anything to anybody, was to make sure I was presenting accurate material. Trying to correct or "unteach" errors is next to impossible once they are incorporated and fossilized in a student's brain.
