I've used every language-learning product on the market, and Rocket is by far the biggest bang for my buck. The amount you can learn and internalize in a given amount of time is really quite astounding...

Rocket Spanish is an awesome method to learn Spanish. Work and constance are needed but, if you do, you will feel the progress. I used to hear the lessons, when it is possible, in my car to accelerate the process...

I'm still very new but I think it's very helpful, especially with a language like Japanese as I can't read the writing - yet! What I didn't know when I started was the Rocket Japanese would help me learn to read it as well!!! AWESOME!!!

I went on a work exchange to a french ski area thirty years ago. After six months in Meribel my French was approaching functional, I have spoken very little French since. I've been really surprised how quickly it is all coming back after just using your product for just a week.

I liked the rocket learning German course quite a lot, the several types of ways it helps you learn, either through writing questions or having you verbally repeat it back to a microphone. This all contributed to high rates of retention of the words for myself.

This approach to tackling Russian is exactly what I needed. I started the language with textbooks and grammar and only managed to frustrate myself. Since starting Rocket Russian, I've seen massive improvement in my listening and speaking abilities and I couldn't be more motivated to keep learning! It's brilliant!

I'm having problems with the speech recognition and will likely need to contact tech support; however, the first few hours into the course and I'm enjoying what I received for the price.
