I just LOVE my Rocket French courses. I purchased the complete CD packages (Rocket French 1, 2, 3) and listen to them over and over in the car. This is a no- hassle, no-pressure, easy and relaxed way to learn another language. A great language learning system!
I love the way the courses are organized... stimulating interactive conversations (with explanations!) that can be downloaded as MP3s, along with voice recognition/replay, voice-to-text translation (and correction!), role playing on my laptop and even more detailed information for further reading. They did an awesome job with Rocket French!
I never did any French at school, which was a long time ago and in the UK. Since coming to Canada only 18 months ago I decided I really should learn the other tongue of our dual language confederation. I have attended a course at one of our local adult education facilities but rapidly became out of my depth and therefore discouraged and have now left that course. So I stepped up to the plate and have bought the Platinum Course. I can now go over each lesson at my own pace several times. I love that I can practice my accent for each word and love having to try several times with some words to hit that magic 100%. I am new to this but am loving it so far and now have a real incentive to keep on going.
Rocket French is a valuable learning tool. The diction in both languages is excellent and the course is overflowing with so much input.
What I personally like about it is - you can come back to it at any time without losing your course fee etc. You can pick up where you left off a few weeks ago, maybe after sickness, or, as in my case, after major surgery. Learning a language via Rocket is so convenient. It fits into your own particular lifestyle like a glove on your hand. You chose when and where to access it, and your own private teacher is always there on call.

I am thrilled to have been referred to Rocket French. I found that I was tackling French in a totally academic manner. ie. I was learning to read it and write it very well, but when it came to stringing a sentence together, I fumbled! Rocket French has enabled me to have lots of interactive practice in listening to the French accent and responding with confident pronunciation. It even provides the written language too! Tutors are encouraging and fun, whilst simultaneously teaching huge amounts of info in seemingly easy sessions. I hope to improve my Spanish later, after completely mastering my French. Thank you, Rocket Languages.
Wow!! Thank you for making Flash card vocab revision earn points!! It was a necessary evil before, that I'd tack onto the beginning or end of a lesson . . . I feel even more virtuous now that I can see the tally go up, and it counts towards my active streak!
On a recent visit to France/French-speaking Switzerland I found I could understand much more of what I read and heard than on previous visits. Although often too slow to respond, when I did say something, I WASN'T ANSWERED IN ENGLISH !! (I take this to mean that my pronunciation is also much improved.)
I am not even half-way through Level 1, and am convinced that Rocket French will have me communicating meaningfully on my next trip.
So far I think the program is great. I used rosetta stone for Spanish and already with Rocket I am learning French faster than I did Spanish with Rosetta stone. I would recommend this program to anyone!
Rocket French is an incredible value. It's fun to use and incredibly effective. I was completely new to the French language before moving to France, so I bought Rocket French three months before I moved to get me started. Using Rocket French gave me the foundation I needed to learn quickly. Nine years later, I am still using the advanced lessons to improve. I love it.
I would never recommend this course to anyone and I bet they don't let this be printed but I will find someway of getting a true review out there- I have tried for 6 days to contact customer service- No one is ever there- its 5 15 pacific standard time and they are to be available and no one is available- I leave email for 6 days- and get 2 stupid emails back that say the very same thing- update chrome and I already have updated chrome. They will not call me ----
Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Sheila - Sorry for the delayed response from customer support, we have tried contacting you a few times and it looks like we have managed to set up a time for a Skype call to look into your issues!
I have other more expensive programs, but Rocket French is easier to use and gives a good insight into the language which some of the others struggle to do. I Definitely recommend Rocket French to anyone wishing to learn another language.
