Rocket Spanish — Alaska
2 years ago

I first bought Rocket Spanish many years ago after a trip to Costa Rica and Guatemala. I had taken Spanish at my local college, but after the trip it was quite obvious that I needed lots of practice, and Rocket Spanish provided the means in a fun and entertaining way! Understanding the other person is the most difficult part for me, and the way RS is presented, with the conversations and explanations, is by far the best I have seen in any program...

Love the step by step progression of the program and the clear and concise grammar lessons! Only concern is the voice recognition for certain sounds ( e.g. initial /t/, /v/, words like "un" and "peu," difficulty recognizing numbers)...

I had actually done the Rocket Spanish and I was a bit disappointed with Rocket Japanese. I do not feel that there are enough lessons to get an understanding of the material. I also do not feel that verbs were covered enough.

It is difficult to begin--there is no easy way to start learning right off the bat, one has to search for the book/lessons. Learning would be easier if you could click a button to take you to a lesson (the most recent), with links to all of the information you need to continue on...

I'm an intermediate beginner learner and I got Rocket Korean in hopes that it would advance my level at a quicker pace than using a text book. What I have found is that it takes just as long if not two times as long to complete a lesson on here but when I do have time it is a very thorough, effective way to learn...

I like that so much of the exercises use audio. Too many language teachers end up teaching how to read a language, but put very little emphasis on speaking and comprehension. I also really like the dictation exercises, mostly because they give me practice in comprehension of spoken Spanish.

Rocket french has increased my french speaking ability, but i don't like the customer service and the price is too high. The materials doesn't contain conjugation of verbs. As a learner i think it is better to have reading exercises like comprehension.

Good for those who like to control the content of their learning rather than going in an order dictated to them. I like the email reminders to encourage return to learning. Clicking on phrases to hear the pronunciation is also very helpful, as is playing the games to test knowledge.

Hi, Learning from Rocket Japanese is easy and fast and one gets to know the real feel also because of the conversations. However, as you can understand that any study without aim is worthless. I would suggest that you add more study material which is matchable to the quality of questions to the JLPT levels...

Rocket French — York, United Kingdom

On the plus side: • I like the way grammatical rules are discussed in understandable, laymans’ terms • It’s easy to learn/revise words and phrases • It’s easy to develop your listening skills to understand what people are saying and its easy to develop skills in identifying what to say But there is room for improvement: • Speech recognition needs improvement o Gives some poor pronunciation 100%, but doesn’t recognise closer attempts o When sentences are long it often cuts you off o Often (every session) crashes for no reason and you have to log in again • Its easy to put all your effort into reading and writing – rather than developing listening and speaking skills

One major flaw, which is very frustrating. That is the speech recognition software is of poor quality. I do not know why this was not pretested better. But when saying the same words the same way results in a much higher score there has to be a problem...

I just went through the introduction, the only problem I had would be there's no spelling in the conversation. If I would be listening to this program without pre-study the contents, it's hard to remember the sentence afterwards.

The beginner's course is good. The intermediate course is ok; but, not as good as the beginner's course. The Platinum (advanced course) is poorly done. In the Platinum course, the presentation is sloppy and there is very little interaction or practice time.

So far. The lessons are pretty easy and general. Not much reinforcement after each lesson so that the student retains. I guess I have to commit to practicing and reinforcing each lessson on my own. Also At times the videos are not as fluent (perhaps it is my computer).

Rocket German is a great German learning course. The lessons cover the most common life situations, although sometimes more examples of different variations of the same situation would be nice. I like that there are two indicators how well you know a certain lesson ("hear it", "learn it"), which is useful for tracking to your progress.
