I'm a beginner and I'm two months into it at the moment and am very satisfied overall with Rocket Japanese. I've purchased all three levels and the Play the Part product and I believe it's money well spent. The program is comprehensive in content and well-thought out and works well for me as the core of my Japanese language learning. I am supplementing the writing
lessons with other material that involves more paper and pen repetition to help hard-wire hiragana and katana in my brain, and I'll do the same with the kanji. I think Rocket is awesome as it is and realize that no one method can cover every possible base, but I will suggest that Rocket Japanese would be even more effective if it provided links to real world audio or video featuring native speakers, or written material suited to a particular learning level in the program. Otherwise, I'm only on the 3rd Module or Level 1, and have along way to go, but so far so good.

The most I like about the Rocket Japanese is the early and frequent use of conversational lessons. I have only started the program a week ago, and so far it is has been an enjoyable experience.
I hope the platform can add links to shows to watch and songs to help learn and practice the language.

As someone that originally wanted to travel to Japan to learn the language, but lack the funds to make that dream a reality at this current time, This was the next best option!

I'm still only a couple lessons in to it but I'm already loving how well made and designed the lesson are and how easy and clear its been made to understand and learn, always thought learning a language would be daunting, but Rocket has made it fun and easier if nothing else. I hope that by the time, if not before I finish this course I would have saved enough funds to travel to japan, and I have no doubts that rocket will have set me up for successes for when I do.

Flaw & Suggestions

If I was to point out or suggest anything that would be a bonus and that I think the lack of is holding this back from being a Full 5* it would be the Vocab lesson having more of the Japanese that was in the audio lessons present as well.

In around a week, I have almost caught up to what I learned in 2 years of my school's curriculum. The up-front price that they ask for may seem intimidating for most people at first but I can assure you that it is worth every dollar. You may as well be saving money by investing in Rocket Languages as it is a one-time purchase as opposed to its' competitors. I've only barely scratched the surface of this learning tool, but if it's as good as I think it is then I have nothing to worry about.

Nonetheless, it's not perfect (for most people) and it shouldn't be your only resource if you're learning Japanese but if it is then I guess it's good if you are an absolute beginner and want to focus solely on grammar/speaking. (I have not touched the kanji yet so I can't say too much about that)

Overall, this is definitely worth checking out if you are serious about learning a language.

I purchased Rocket Japanese a few years ago and put it on the back burner. I've recently gotten my interest back up and have been practicing more. Not being an expert on language courses, I'm pretty happy with my purchase. The frustration I have is self inflicted as I have difficulty with sentence structure and conjugating verbs. That is no fault of the program, however. I just have to let go of established norms to understand better what I am trying to learn.

It's been a great way to review and practicing listening and speaking skills. It's a great starting point too. I live in Japan and have been picking up Japanese very slowly. Rocket Japanese does a good job balancing all elements of learning the language. It obviously isn't the best for learning kanji...BUT kanji isn't my goal right now. There are some great kanji apps out there to supplement that that too, such as kanji garden. This site is also very user friendly.
