Enjoying it very much so far. Raised by Spanish mother, non-Spanish father. Have bits and pieces of the language, good pronunciation, needed something to seal the deal with :) this seems worth the money More

I think the method used to teach Japanese is excellent and I love the updates made on the web site, I see new features and I think that's great. The short lessons are easy to remember and you can learn Japanese step by step with no rush and no pressure. More

I use to copy the lessons to my smart phone, and reproduce it at my car during the horrible traffic at Mexico City. When I arrive at the office I check the spelling of he words in doubt. The presenters have an excellent pronunciation and they adapt the speed to the proper level. More

Mandarin is very very difficult and Dave just makes it sound too too easy! Lin is awesome! When you get to China they actually talk twice as fast-I wish they had repeat buttons you could press- but they are very friendly and-in Xishuangbanna- I had my photo taken and shook hands at least a hundred times Ni Hao!

Rocket Review has been a great review for my oral midterm coming up in Chinese. The speaking aspect is especially helpful as that is currently my weakest area. I am also able to get an idea of where I stand, and the rating system helps me to figure out what else I need to work on. More

The Spanish course does an adequate job of starting one learning the language. The technique used is anything but new as I have used it over many years for two of the several languages I know. The price for the first set of lessons is reasonable at less than $100 but then the price escalates. More

I love the dialogues. They help you develop your listening and speaking skills rocket fast. Unlike the Pilmsleur approach that I have also used, Rocket languages also has the reinforcement activities where you get additional listening, speaking and writing practice so you learn to spell correctly and pay attention to accent marks and special characters...

Enjoying Rocket Italian. The flow of the lessons is good. Both the website and the iOS apps are quite good. There are some minor usability issues worth noting. 1. I can't find a way to speed up the recorded lessons which would be helpful for me as I have some background in the language so the early lessons could be moved through faster... More

I love that you are able to speak through lessons. It feels like you have a great friend to practice with, except they are always there for practice! Only wish is that the voice recorder would have a stop button because it doesn't seem to stop recording if fans are playing in the background or other white noise. More

I purchased Rocket Korean in August of 2016, yet I have just now begun exploring just how many things it can do! I absolutely love it and get online everyday. I have a 2 hour minimum study goal per day, and with Rocket Languages, it is SO easy to accomplish that! The two hours fly right by! One thing I don't like is how in the Interactive Audio Lessons, there are TONS of extremely long phrases I've already found just in Module 1... More

I was happy with Rocket French in the beginning but as I am now in lesson 6 I find it extremely frustrating. I cannot remember 2-3 phrases and then say them quickly enough. I am constantly being cut off in mid sentence, and no I haven't paused, and the voice recognition is not very good... More

I very much enjoy the interactive audio lessons in Rocket German. Paul and Nik are a kick! The program as a whole has a lot of useful phrases and is much more up to date than, say, Rosetta Stone I wish the quizes had more questions I would like to do the voice recognition but Mac Computers do not do well with Google Chrome so I do the best I can without it.

Rocket Japanese is a pretty good introduction to Japanese. It's definitely far better than Rosetta Stone and a few other programs I had some experience with (but fortunately never actually wasted money on), but despite how they boast about teaching grammar, it does a woefully inadequate job of teaching even the most basic grammar, and there are some strange choices for vocabulary to teach: for instance, there is an entire survival kit that is more than 80% words that I will never use because I don't drink alcohol or eat pork or shrimp...

A great way to get your feet wet to a number of different languages.
