Let's get you talking in Japanese.

We love Japanese people and Japanese culture - from riveting anime and comforting ramen to the majestic Mt. Fuji and the breathtaking sights of Kyōto! And there's no better way to connect with them than by learning 日本語 (Japanese).

Why Rocket Japanese?

We take you to the heart of the Japanese language and give you everything you need to understand the language and the culture like a local.

With Rocket Japanese, you'll...

  • Have lifetime access to your course.

    The Japanese language can be yours for life, and we believe your Japanese course should be too. With Rocket Japanese, you can come back in a month, a year or even a decade and still have full access to your courses. You'll also get all of the updates and improvements that we make for free!

  • Perfect your pronunciation.

    If you can pronounce words Japanese correctly, then you know you'll be understood by the locals - which is why we teach you to talk just like they do. With Rocket Japanese, you can check your pronunciation using our state-of-the-art voice recognition system and listen to thousands of useful words and phrases recorded by real Japanese speakers.

  • Practice on-the-spot speaking.

    Many new language learners feel nervous about talking to native speakers, so we've created the perfect activity to address this problem. It lets you practice both sides of common Japanese conversations in a comfortable, stress-free environment, so that you're ready to respond when you're out in the real world.

Lesson List
  • Remember what you cover.

    You'll put a lot of time into learning Japanese, so we make sure you can remember it all by including fun and engaging activities in every lesson. These activities use algorithms to identify where you're having trouble and help you practice problematic words and phrases until they stick.

  • Learn how Japanese actually works.

    Knowing a few set phrases in Japanese can be helpful, but will only get you so far in real-life situations. We take you step by step through how the language works so that you can build sentences on your own and actually take part in conversations.

  • Train your ears as well as your mouth.

    When you first hear someone speak in Japanese, you may find it hard to make out even a single word. Rocket Japanese comes with tons of downloadable audio tracks that train your ear to the Japanese language.

    • Learn to both read and write in Japanese.

      Japanese comes with the added challenge of having three different writing systems, but we've got you covered with lessons on how to both read and write using each system. We even have a built-in kanji writing tool so that you can make sure you're writing even the most elaborate kanji characters correctly!

    • Be ready to blend in with the locals.

      Communicating and connecting with people in another language isn't just about using proper grammar - it's also about understanding another culture. We get you ready for this with lessons on everything from greetings and foods to holidays and local customs in Japan.

    • Get courses tailored for the Japanese language.

      A lot of other courses out there take a cookie-cutter approach, using the same template for every language they teach. At Rocket Languages, we understand that no two languages are exactly alike! That's why we've carefully crafted Rocket Japanese to include what's practical, relevant, and useful based on the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) levels of competency.

    • Stay on track and stay inspired.

      Motivation is key to learning a language, so we make sure to provide you with a wide array of motivational tools and techniques. They'll keep your interest up and your focus sharp so you can meet your goals and make better progress.
