Rocket Spanish — Alaska
4 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... More

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)... More

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. More

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... More

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. More

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... More

I find there is generally too much preamble getting into each dialogue - too much from the English guy especially. Ironically, he seems to be talking as though adressing an ESOl class . However, as a native speaker, I find his delivery and Uk accent quite amateurish... More

The voice recognition works pretty well. It struggles with very short sounds, but overall very good. I've used other programs that ask you to speak the answers, but the pronunciation analysis makes me try much harder to say each response out loud... More

I really like the format on the website. And I really like that it has a mobile app. However I travel a lot and the time I have most available to practice Chinese is when I am on a plane. You can download the MP3 files but I really wish the APP would allow you to cache the sections you are working on so they worked on a plane... More

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... More

The review games are an awesome idea. The don't have the structure they need to help with the learning process. I would prefer the lessons to include more vocab and less history. I know the history is important but the language learning is what I'm here for. More

Your program is fine and efficient. Nevertheless the dialogues are a little boring ("Beijing seems to be a big city" , well, who doesn't know it?) and there is a BIG mistake in lesson 5.5 Places worth checking out in Beijing (the quizz) : the Great Wall of China CANNOT be seem from the moon !

I like the way you have to talk. I have been trying to learn spanish fore a few years now, and I can understand a lot. But when it comes to talking i got stuck. Now after almost finishing the first module I see that I can answer the questions in the lessons not only repeating, but building new sentences with other words... More

As a completely new person to Korean, this course is not what I should have chosen to begin with. To be able to feel like you "completed" the lesson, you have to write things in a language they have not taught you yet! The lessons are too long and having to learn the "extras" to feel like you completed the material they were focusing on is also frustrating... More

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... More

It is such a good program but the problem the language it self it is not main arabic, it is an accent, it is only used in Egypt. if it was a classic arabic it will be more way better. because if people understand the classic arabic by the time it will be easy for them to understand any other accent...

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 More

Unfortunately, this software does not allow me to become fluent, as this only makes you an "intermediate" speaker with a premium level of 1 compared to others who have 3. The software for Arabic really needs some more information on writing the language, as it is by far the hardest lessons to learn... More
