Overall Rocket Italian is a pretty good system. You get exposed to the language in a variety of ways and have some explanation as to why a particular pattern exists. It does have the problem that there is only one correct answer for each thing... More

The course structure enables learner to advance at his or her own pace. Sometimes the sentences are too long and the pronunciation too difficult to hear - even though my hearing is excellent. When I do these activities in Rocket Korean and upon listening to Pimsleur Korean in my car, I find that the Korean sound system to be more challenging than the sound system in most other languages...

This is a very good program to learn Spanish , Latin American variation , not Castilian Spanish of Spain. I understand that this version of Spanish is more useful for Americans who probably make up the bulk of the clientele of people wanting to learn Spanish... More

Rocket Spanish is well organized and fairly easy to use. I definitely like the experience and the process. HOWEVER - They are very wishy-washy with the meanings of phrases. In an effort to teach you different phrases to say the same thing, the designers forget that words have meaning... More

I did not purchase this product but it was instrumental in my learning "muchos palabras" in Espanol. I am thankful for this opportunity to learn many of the words that I was not familiar with. The fact that this opportunity was free makes it even sweeter. More

I am a bilingual person (translator from English into French) trying to learn Japanese. I've been trying several methods books, on-line, etc., over several years. Even though this method is far more interesting and educational than Rosetta, I feel that it is lacking of grammatical points or explanations, so to be a complete learner, you need to complement it by another mean (books or apps)...

A good product to get started with the basic conversation. Every sentence is broken into pieces and every word is explained in great detail. As long as someone wants to start conversing then its good but if the emphasis is on taking exams such as JLPT then it may not be very useful as its purpose is different. More

I am in lesson 5.2 of the Interactive Audio Lessons and just discovered all the phrases you can practice in the "Hear it" "Say It" "Know It" section of the lesson by clicking on the "EASY" button...

For the most part, I do like the course. It is an easy and enjoyable way to learn. I am taking the Italian course. My only MINOR COMPLAINT SO FAR is the specificity of some of the lessons. In Module 3 of the Premium Basic Course, the first 2 lessons are waaaay too narrowly focused... More

It's a little simplistic at times - I like to delve further into grammar to understand why a phrase is as it is rather than just learning it by rote - but the practice has definitely made a difference to my understanding and it's good to have some structure to my learning , living in an area where I can't access any physical classes...

The first thing when I get up is to Rocket Language. It's fun, patient, and interactive ! I do love Paul and Claire as if I were in the classroom, or to say, I got two français amis !

It met my expectations generated by the online reviews, most of which often prove misleading. I enrolled for the trial period and was pleasantly surprised. I believe Rocket Chinese provides an excellent resource that, if combined with motivation and regular, sustained practice will lead the student to breakthrough into conversational fluency - and that is my goal.
