Wirklich toll! The only area which I would critique is in connection with pronunciation. Paul's pronunciation is very clear. Nik's is rather Australian. The interactive pronunciation test really appears just to graph speech volume and phrasing rather than the accuracy of your pronunciation itself. You have to compare the recording of your own voice and evaluate for yourself how close your pronunciation is to that of the tutor. That could lead to the repetition of mistakes if your pronunciation goes uncorrected. They could improve this by focusing more on pronunciation, including how pronunciation varies according to regional dialect. I have no doubt that Rocket will improve this over time. Overall, it is simply a wonderful German language learning tool, and one that is very easy and fun to use. "Sehr gute Arbeit! Auf Wiedersehen!"
