I really like how the site is structured. One thing I would like to see added would be flashcards section for the vocabulary

I really like the friendly and natural tone of the interactive audio lessons, and how new vocabulary and grammar are introduced.

Since I originally purchased Rocket German there has been two revisions. I'm glad to see that the program gets updated. I like the current format. With the previous update I noticed a significant improvement in the voice recognition. With the latest version, I think that some of that recognition is not quite as good. At mid-day it seems that the voice recognition has a difficult time. I'm sure that the voice recognition id very difficult to accomplish. (fyi. I use headphones with a mic and no background noise). Over the past few years, I've taken in-class and on-line German classes and used a couple of apps, but come back to Rocket German as my preference (although teacher instructed course covered sentence structure and verb conjugation).

Response from Rocket Languages

Thanks so much for your review Doug, it's sincerely appreciated. It's great to hear that you are enjoying the new format! We think it's more intuitive and modern, and hopefully our learners think so too!
We have found 18 Language and Culture lessons in the Rocket German level 1 course that will help you with sentence structure and verb conjugation. We will send a list of them through to you, for your reference. All the best with your language learning!

First of all, In the middle of exercises (as I'm trying to speak a German phrase) I get annoying popup windows asking me to write a review of Rocket German. I think that's pretty indicative of how much Rocket cares about me actually learning, an how much it just wants more business. In fact, just above this box where I'm typing, Rocket has a link to some "example reviews" which are glowing reports of how when you buy RG, all your wildest fantasies will come true. Since RG insists, though, here is my review...***

Right after I paid $250 dollars for the three German courses (the first of which I didn't even want, but you have no option to remove it from the bundle) I get directed to another page telling me I should really also buy another add-on course that normally costs $50, but they're going to give it to me for $30. Classic used-car salesman tactic. I decline. I'm directed to another page saying "Ok, we'll give it to you for $20, but only if you buy it right now. No kidding, this is your last chance!" Does it get any more sleazy than that?***

The German course was clearly written by native German speakers, which is good, but not really checked by a native English speaker for the quality of the English dialogue.

Sehr Gut! I like the Listening and Speaking aspect, from the start... I love the explanations of the word parts. Why is Wie geht's dir.... in that form. Nice! I like the hear, speak, record, listen, compare.. Nice. I really like the classical Musik (-Brahms- Bach?) in the Introduction. It is the little 'polished' things, nice touches to begin our solid feeling journey. So much better than Duolingo, (even tho they do very boringly pound things in with shear repetition). I am trying Memrise as well, for what it does, it is fun, but not as systematic or complete as the foundation is in Rocket Languages - German. Prost!

I studied some German in high school 55 years ago. I’ve tried several other well known and well advertised and more expensive language courses in the past, but I am most impressed with Rocket for it’s pacing and through attention to understanding the context in real life situations. I’ve been using it for a week and look forward to each days lesson.

The 2021 update is really good. I like that things are explained up front. I.E. the expression Hilf mir.
Before I didn't understand why mir was used instead of mich.The explaination was given allowing me to retain the expression easily. The difference between You speak good German and You speak German well also has made things clearer. Also I seem to understand Lena better than the previous lady speaker.
Also greatly improved is having the German letters with the Umlaut and the double SS available in the written portion while using the
computer keyboard. also makes the written portion easier by being able to concentrate on proper spelling instead of hunting for the special characters on the little keyboard.

Thanks for the improvements.
