The Award Winning German Learning System That Lets You Be Part Of The German Community

(And the best thing is – it only takes minutes a day)

Mastering German can seem like an impossible dream, right?

  • Well, it doesn’t matter if you’ve slumped into your chair with disappointment and frustration after having tried and failed to learn German in the past... (In fact, the worse your previous attempts at learning German have been, the more excited I am that you are here...)

  • Or if sometimes you feel like you are so busy that you don’t even have time to eat, let alone Deutsch zu sprechen (to speak German), because a few minutes a day is all it takes...

  • And don’t think you’re too old and that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, because being older can make language learning easier, and stimulating your mind can add years to your life...

  • Maybe you are tone deaf (like me!), well that doesn’t matter at all, because before you know it you will be ordering Strudel and Bratwurst like a native German speaker...

Even if you believe that languages don’t stick in your brain, when in fact, with the right system, they can stick like krazy glue...


I’m Jason Oxenham, CEO and co-founder of Rocket Languages. Since 2004, our mission has been to let ordinary people truly master a new language anywhere they want to learn and at any time they wish to do it.

Today I want to invite you to join the 1,212,346 happy, successful, men and women from all 196 countries around the world, who’ve discovered how one amazing, award-winning, system will help them learn German, when other systems have failed.

The very same system the illustrious PCMag selected as their Editors Choice for language learning, rating it above all the other well-known systems out there...

...and which also took out the prestigious 19th Annual Best Educational Software Award last year.

Jason Oxenham: Rocket Languages Co-founder and CEO

So, what’s the secret? How do some people master German, while you’re going nowhere?

How is it that some people “get” German easily and yet others, people like you and me, just get frustrated and lost? Well, I can tell you…

  • You can bet that they’re not wasting time sitting in a classroom getting a small fraction of the teachers’ time and attention...

  • They’re not trying to avoid the teachers gaze, hoping they won’t be singled out for embarrassment by having their poor pronunciation exposed in front of the whole class...

  • They’re not mindlessly parroting the same phrases over and over with their classmates while their German teacher stalks the room...

  • And they are definitely not plowing through old school workbooks and grammar texts, trying to work out what’s going on...

Wouldn’t it be great if you knew exactly what worked for you?

So, exactly how will Rocket German help you master German?

The scientific theory behind our courses is the "chunking" process or Miller's Law by Dr. George A. Miller, which is based on the fact that the number of objects an average human can hold in working memory is 7 ± 2. So, simply described, it is the breaking down of big difficult content into small easy parts or "chunks".

Now, while it’s important to have a strong scientific basis for a language learning system, it’s equally important for you to know what works in the real world, from people who have succeeded at mastering one or more languages.

We have spent over 10 years figuring out what works and what doesn’t, we have surveyed polyglots (people who speak multiple languages), researched people who overcame often severe learning difficulties to master a language, used advances in web technology, and much more…

All to develop a ground-breaking system that will get you speaking and understanding the language you've always loved, no matter how old you are, or what your current German speaking ability is.

Discover how the 7 powerful language acquisition success strategies in Rocket German will help you learn German no matter what your background is...

7 Success Strategies


Success Strategy #1. Make the BEST possible use of your limited time...

You say that you don’t have time to learn German?
Well, you may have more time than you may think! Many successful language learners use what appears to be downtime to keep building their knowledge, and you can too...

You can learn German at your own pace and in your own time, without adding to your already busy schedule by having to attend German classes!

That’s why a key component of Rocket German, the Interactive Audio Course, is designed so you can learn German:

  • during your commute to work,

  • while you are at the gym,

  • walking the dog,

  • doing the housework,

  • or anytime that you are on the go...

You can access Rocket German from any computer, tablet or smartphone,

AND you can use the app that comes with every Rocket German course.

Listen to and/or download a free Rocket German introductory Interactive Audio Course track here.
(Note: this is just the audio, with the full Rocket German course you get a full transcript of the conversation and all other German words and phrases used in the audio track too)...

It consists of tons of audio lessons, with each track averaging over 25 minutes in length, that are designed to train your ear to German and prompt you to speak and respond to your tutors, Paul and Nik.

Each audio track guides you through an everyday conversation that you are likely to have in Germany or when speaking to German people.

Right click on "Download Audio" and choose "save link/target as" to save this lesson as a MP3 on your computer

A word of warning! If you are completely new to German then this German conversation may sound like complete gobbledygook in the beginning. That’s entirely normal, it may take several listens until you can break it down. So download it and use it!

Look what from has to say...

A friend had recommended Rocket German to me. At first I wasn't sure whether it would reach my requirements. As I'm planning to move to Germany and hopefully study there one day I wanted to learn German as fast as possible.

I've tried learning it before in the past but I always gave up. It simply wasn't fun. Well, after trying Rocket German for some time now I can say that not only is it fun, it's addictive. I love how amusing it is to listen to the audio, it's as easy as that to download it to my ipod and then absorb the lessons as I go about my day. The systems with points is also motivating me to work even harder.

I'm from Sweden and I've learnt both English and Spanish to a fluent level. It took hard work and truth be told, it's was a rather arduous journey. Sure, I enjoyed it, as I've always enjoyed language learning, but there was a lot of effort involved. With rocket german I what I'm experiencing is a sense of my language learning being effortless. Sure, your brain will be working hard as the lessons are getting increasingly more intense and challenging, but it's all presented in such a clever and innovative way that the it's never boring.

If you want to learn german in an enjoyable and effortless manner then rocket german is your best choice.

Success Strategy #2. Understand EXACTLY how German works...

A key fact that has been surprisingly often “overlooked” by some other “big name” companies is that you MUST know the mechanics of how German works for you to truly master German.

German, like most languages, has a completely different sentence structure to English, which means that you need to have that structure explained to you, it’s not something that you can pick up by osmosis!

That’s why the Rocket Express Learning System® has in-depth, step by step instructions on how German works in English, as well as valuable cultural tips with our Language and Culture lessons.

With Rocket German’s Language & Culture lessons you will discover the mechanics of German and access audio tracks of thousands of common German words and phrases that go with the lessons.

I love this system and am using it for my third language. I have used many other methods, including Rosetta Stone, Pimsleur and a two week language course in Italy and found the Rocket programs superior in that the grammar is part of the method, which is essential in becoming fluent in a language. The conversations are believable and typical of what one might need to say while traveling. They also provide a basis for formulating independent ideas for conversing while traveling. Bravo ... Sehr Gut ... Gracias !!!

Success Strategy #3. REINFORCE what you learn so that it sticks... forever...

In most classroom settings the learning that you do is not very efficient, mainly because the pace of the learning is dictated by the teacher and the class size, not you...

And that’s not even considering the low amount of information that is retained. A study by German psychologist, Hermann Ebbinghaus, showed that within an hour most people have forgotten 50% of what they have learned and within 2 days it’s pretty much all gone...

So, it stands to reason that a major key to successfully learning German is remembering as much as possible of what you have learnt. Particularly being able to remember it when you are under pressure to speak!

That's where the Rocket Reinforcement activities come in. Our scientifically designed algorithm re-displays words and phrases that you are weak on until they stick in your head like glue.

Each Rocket German lesson has a variety of reinforcement activities, with each one designed to reinforce and enhance your recall in a different way;

What’s more this all ties into your own personalized progress tracking system, keeping you on the path to mastery!

Rocket Reinforcement

Hear it Say it! improves your understanding of spoken German. Fantastic for training your ear to German,

Write it! improves your ability to write/type in German, and at the same time reinforces the words, phrases and sentence structures, so they become familiar to you...

Know it! All the training in the world won’t help you if someone is talking to you in German and your mind freezes when it is your turn to speak! That’s why we developed Know it!; our tool for putting you on the spot!

Play it! With our latest learning tool, Play it! you are taking part in the actual conversation from the Interactive Audio Course. Don’t ever toss and turn worrying about opening your mouth and having the wrong words come out. Play it! trains you to say the right thing at the right time!

Quiz! Reinforce your knowledge of the Language lesson concepts with our multi-choice quiz

I have been using Rocket German to learn mainly German language on and off for few years. During this time I have tried other language courses but none comparable to Rocket German. I never thought I would have interest in language learning, but thanks to Rocket German today learning new languages is my greatest passion. Learning with Rocket German is fun, its interactive, its easy (Deutsch ist leicht) it open my ears to understand. Thank you...Rocket German. I am happy to say today, "Ich spreche ein bisschen deutsch und ich lerne gerne." Toll! Donna

Success Strategy #4. Practice SPEAKING and SOUNDING like a native...

One of the tricks that people who have mastered another language swear by is speaking out loud as often as you can. This activates key areas of your brain to further reinforce the new connections that are being made as you learn German.

...Sound Like You ARE a Native German Speaker With Rocket Record!

NOTE: Due to system requirements Rocket Record will work on Desktop PC, Android and iOS apps only.

The Rocket Express Learning System® has several features that prompt you to speak German out loud. One of the most impressive and useful is Rocket Record...

You will gain the huge benefits of speaking out loud and also be able to improve your pronunciation and accent with our voice recognition tool, Rocket Record.

I have always wanted to learn a foreign language. When I finally decided on German the question was which online course to start with. Before Rocket German I tried a few other language courses and gave up in a couple of days thinking it was far too complicated language and a boring experience. Then I took a free trial with Rocket German and I was speaking German on the very first day of my Course. I am glued to Rocket now. I think they know exactly how to make self learning of a foreign language a fun process. The tests at the end of each chapter are designed to boost self confidence and just by sincere studies using the brilliant rocket record technique I climb up the leaderboard! Rocket has become my hobby and only pastime. This course is well worth the money spent and more. I recommend it as the only course required to learn a New Language. Look No Further!

Success Strategy #5. Access the ADVANCED learning techniques...

Gone are the days of sitting in a classroom while Mrs X wanders up and down the aisles, getting you to repeat “Ich spreche Deutsch” over and over...

Over the last 10 years there have been huge advances in learning techniques, and in language learning methods in particular...

For example did you know this hyperglot method? (A hyperglot is someone who knows 6 or more language fluently, as opposed to the more commonly known term, polyglot, who knows 3-5 languages)

“Shadowing” is a hyperglot method devised by hyperglot Alexander Arguelles. The basic method is this:

  • download an audio book in the target language

  • put your headphones on and try to repeat the dialogue simultaneously and verbatim

Essentially, you play a native-speaker dialogue through your headphones and as you hear it, even if you don’t understand a word of it, you repeat the sounds at the same time.

It’s learning another language in a way that’s similar to how you learned your first language – repeating sounds exactly as you hear them. It’s a great way for you to master colloquial speech, and your accent and intonation.

Rocket German has 25 Advanced Learning Technique articles that will give you learning techniques like this. Discover more tips and tricks that will dramatically cut the amount of time you need to study.

Having moved from the United States to Berlin, Germany last year, I needed serious help to get up to speed on my German. I've taken several German courses, and used a few other software packages; however, Rocket German is my favorite of all the language development tools. I really appreciate the fact that the good folks at Rocket Languages are always trying to update the content on the website...keeping the lessons fresh and fun. It's good to back over some of the old material from time to time...and Rocket keeps you motivated to do so. While I do not feel I have mastered the language (yet), Rocket German is helping me get there.

* real time reporting — updates every 5 sec

Before subscribing to Rocket German, I had tried for years, off and on, to learn German. I read primers, readers, phrase books, listened to CDs and even took the first two levels of Rosette Stone, but I never really got much past the basics. I could read some, but couldn't understand it when it was spoken, and had difficulty communicating in anything except very simple phrases.

Now, with Rocket, I can feel myself finally rising above that basic plateau. I suppose one could say it was my fault for not working harder and that would be true. I didn't work hard enough. I realize now I am working much harder than previously, but the thing is, with Rocket it doesn't seem like such hard work.

The thing about Rocket, I think, that makes it so effective is that it is structured in a multi dimensional way that keeps your interest and provides the tools and exercises to accommodate various learning styles. Some times my brain hurts and I have to take a break for a day (just like working out at the gym), but I never get bored. Besides the lessons, I find that I enjoy the forum. That actually surprised me because I'm not a social networking sort of guy. However, it is a good way to ask specific questions of a language expert, share problems with other students, and meet some interesting people. I think Rocket is a great course and a great buy.

Success Strategy #7. Maintain MOTIVATION and have fun while you learn...

The final method that successful language learners use is high motivation; which means maintaining your motivation and actively improving it.

Have you ever tried doing something new that was so exciting that you had an inability to concentrate on anything else? Then as time goes on it, slowly but surely, it gets to the stage where it’s easier for you to stay in bed... I think we have all been there...

That’s why the Rocket Express Learning System® has been designed to include a whole range of activities and features that will keep you engaged, motivated, and on track. Such as...

  • Progress tracking: your at-a-glance Dashboard, so you know where you are up to

  • Rating system: As you go, you get to rate how well you know, words, phrases, and lessons. The more you know, the better your rating

  • Badges, points, and the leaderboard: this works really well to keep you motivated and coming back for more

  • Phrase Finder: so you can find words and phrases within different contexts throughout the course

  • My Vocab: a handy tool for you to store any difficult to remember vocabulary

  • My Notes: another handy tool that lets you make personal notes on each lesson for future reference

  • FlashCards: improve your active recall of German words and phrases using FlashCards. With a FlashCard set for every lesson, you will be mastering German before you know it!

  • Optional weekly emails: reporting on your overall progress and pointing you towards recommended lessons

  • Lifetime access: every Rocket German course is yours for life - 24/7

  • Free upgrades: we are always working on improving the Rocket Express Learning System®, and when we make improvements they are yours for free!

I compared several language programs and test-drove Rocket German before I purchased the whole series. Rocket Languages is so well-designed - it accommodates most people's learning preferences and provides a great deal of engaging learning opportunities. The audio portion is fun and useful; the practice (especially the recording feature) is SO helpful; the new feature that allows me to practice writing is extremely helpful; the games help reinforce what you learn in a competitive way; the forum is a great place to connect with other learners and ask questions (or find answers if you're too timid to post your own!) ... I use Rocket Languages *nearly* every day and have noticed how well I'm retaining and using German as I continue taking these lessons.

As a student of German in college, I thought that over the years I'd "lost" the language as I haven't had much opportunity to use what I knew... but taking this language course has showed me that I hadn't lost it at all... the more I study RL, the more words from my past lessons come back to me.

And the price for all three courses is very reasonable, particularly with 24/7 access. Online learning can be "iffy" ... but Rocket Languages has it figured out. I design online courses for a living and can vouch for the integrity of theory and quality of the instructional design of these courses. It's great stuff!

So, how much does mastery of German cost?
(And how long will it take?)

That all depends on how you go about it...

Let’s do a quick comparison and look at some of the alternatives.


Last time I checked, if you decided to buy one of our competitors software packages, like the well-known yellow ones you so often see advertised on the TV, you could be paying upwards of $500, never mind additional lessons that you may need to take to fill the gaps.


Next, if you decided to take a language class, you’d be looking at paying at least $300 - $400 a semester, and that doesn’t include the cost of textbooks and time away from the things you really want to be doing. Not to mention how little personal time you get in a classroom setting...


Alternatively, you might consider hiring a local or online private tutor, but at the bare minimum you would be paying close to $50 an hour. Sure, it’s smart to get one-on-one attention but it will end up being very expensive and there is no guarantee their method of teaching is going to work for you. Who knows, maybe they focus on a learning style that doesn’t gel with the way you grasp language. Plus, you can’t repeat a lesson without paying them again.


Maybe you’ve considered enrolling in a college or university course. No doubt, you’ve probably already seen that tuition could cost you anywhere between $1,500 to $2,000 on the low end, and let’s face it, that means you’re going to be busy trying to get to classes, wading through heavy text-books, and juggling with more than you need in order to speak and understand a language.


And finally, maybe you’ve thought about simply diving in at the deep end and trying to learn through complete immersion in a foreign country. You know, booking a flight, paying for accommodation and flying by the seat of your pants.

Truth is you don’t need to spend a huge amount of money, or years behind a desk to become proficient at daily conversation. Rocket German provides a simple, quick, and affordable means of achieving mastery at German, while allowing you to continue doing what you want. It’s that flexible.

So how much is it worth to you, to save all that money and time?

With Rocket German, it works out to be less than $1 per hour of tuition, that’s unbeatable value in anyone's book.

As soon as you have ordered you will be directed to the Rocket German members' area where you can access all the tools you need to truly master German.

Remember, your access is 24/7 and is yours for life, including any and all course upgrades... so, once you have it you can come back to it at any time.

The “You’ll learn German or you don’t pay”
Founder’s personal guarantee

That’s right: this is my personal guarantee to you. Here's exactly how it works.

Look, I'm a regular person like you. And I know that it can be difficult to trust people you come across online, especially when we've made some pretty big statements here today.

I've told you that a lot of common methods to learn German are one-dimensional and not based on the key language acquisition methods that the pro’s use. And I've told you that I've got a system that, if you dedicate 20 minutes a day to, and do what I say, then you're going to master German no matter what your age or ability.

Jason Oxenham: Rocket Languages Co-founder and CEO

  • Without having to attend classes

  • Without having to go through some old school text book

  • Without having to look at pictures of apples over and over again.

Before you know it you're going to be able to have actual conversations in German.

You will be able to speak like a native, to natives, and have them slapping you on the back and saying that you're the one person that understands them.

I want to make it an absolute no-brainer for you today, here's what I'm going to do, simply order the course, enter your credit card or PayPal information, and you'll have 60 full days to try this out before you decide if it's for you.

You can decide in those 60 days whether you have the time and the motivation to learn German... If at any point in the next 60 days you don't feel like the system lived up to what I said here, or if you don't think that you personally have time to go through the program, simply contact my customer services team, let them know, and they will issue you with a prompt and courteous refund...

No Questions. No Hassles. Just contact us at [email protected]. It’s that simple.

Rocket Languages is the best language teaching thing ever!!! I have never enjoyed learning another language so much. I have only recently started and I can talk quite well in German. People ask me all the time, "how do you do it??" I say, "Rocket Languages." Whoever created this thing is a genius.
