Rocket Japanese — United States
1 year ago

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 think more emphasize should be placed in Hangul! Its the foundation of the language and everything is so jumbled. Consonant, vowels should be separated and thought differently. I learned by watch children videos of sing alongs in Hangul... More

I like the different types of exercises - I've tried other methods but for software based course this seems better than other I've tried. I have a big problem with my pronunciation so being able to hear myself and being scored is great. More

The Rocket Japanese course is simple to use at the earlier levels, but with increasing level of detail and complexity needed for such a complex language. Audios are clear and enjoyable. Unfortunately the mobile apps don't always seem to work as well as the web based programme - particularly for recording - otherwise I would rate higher. More

I ike the program for sure but I find the tests a bit too easy. I don't consider myself as good as 95% and 96%. I find I forget very quickly so have to redo the sessions over and over again before I feel that anything is really sticking in my brain More

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

The audio lessons are presented very well. They are by far the best part of the program. The written tests and multiple choice tests work fine. The interactive voice tests are sometimes glitchy. As others have said, the website and iOS app can sometimes have issues... More

I think that it a very good online course, the interactive parts are great, it really helps to improve. The conversations chosen are real, meaninful, they help to go around in the real world. I have some suggestions though: it would be very helpful to get the possibility of translating and hearing part of the sentences (cyberteachers from Berlitz has it)... More
