Why learn Japanese with Rocket Languages?

Most online language courses are dry and uninspiring cookie-cutter templates. Rocket Japanese is designed to inspire you, fit around your goals and deliver real results. It was created by a team of Japanese speakers and teaching experts who are fascinated by all things Japanese. And we believe that people learn best when they're taught (and guided) by passionate teachers.

With Rocket Japanese you'll..

Study anytime, anywhere.

When you become a paying member, you get a 24/7 lifetime (yes, your whole life!) access to Rocket Japanese from any computer, phone or tablet. We even have podcast-style Interactive Audio lessons that are perfect for when you're out and about.

Learn your way.

We all learn in different ways. That's why our team curates flexible courses that break the usual online learning mold and allow you to choose how you become a Japanese speaker. The result? You'll learn and remember more.

Learn faster.

The US Foreign Service Institute claims that it takes 2200 hours of study to reach "general proficiency." We've accelerated that process by giving you 27 Expert Tips with advanced learning techniques, that are proven to help you learn more effectively.

Perfect your pronunciation.

Our state-of-the-art voice recognition system will help you fine-tune your Japanese pronunciation, until it's anime-worthy!

Understand the culture.

Our Culture lessons will help you understand key aspects of everyday Japanese life, culture and values. And we're always expanding and improving our courses to keep them fresh, relevant and fun.

Master the writing system.

Don't let the Japanese writing system hold you back. We've designed Japanese writing lessons to help you navigate the streets of Tokyo with ease.

Go as deep as you want.

You only need about 800 words to become conversational in Japanese. We can teach you over 7240 words and phrases. And although we have over 380 hours of lesson material at your disposal, you decide just how much you want to learn. With Rocket Japanese, you can make your way up to level N4 on the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT).

Get the tools to stay on course.

Learning a language isn't always easy. We all know that. So we've created a ton of motivational tools and techniques that keep you inspired and focused.

Retain what you learn.

Our behavior experts have designed tools that ensure you understand all our teaching material. Our algorithms also identify the words and phrases you're struggling with so we can make sure they stick like glue.
