Bottom line...this system really works if you keep up with it. Find a way to integrate it into your daily routine. Which, by the way is relatively easy to do and you will be speaking that 2nd language. More

- dialogue very clear - good variety of topics in lessons - maybe a touch over priced - lesson review sections do not always save for me at the first time of trying - cultural elements very interesting I Appreciate the desire to keep updating and adding to the service More

The twenty minute lessons are just the right length. The narrators are personable and the dialogue is usually pretty interesting. The fact that I can download the lessons and listen to them on my iPod while I walk to work in the morning is especially helpful. More

Sign Language is pretty good, but I wish there was more of a way to test where I am at. I am not sure how well I grasp the concepts because there is not really any interaction...It is a good way to learn by yourself though. More

This course is great, the audio lessons make it walk in the park to learn the new language. Though i feel they could have made it a little more immersive. But at the end of it you will surely have enough German to get you through your first trip or your grammar book :). 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!

I have just completed the trial and, although it is a shame that more advanced Portuguese lessons will not be available any time soon (if at all), I am going to buy the full access anyway. It seems good value for money, but I think I will finish the full course content quite quickly and probably still not be that fluent... More

The content of the course seems good through module 1. The voice recognition has some challenges at times. An example is even though I say the phrase and it is recorded for playback, the system will indicate that it did not get it and therefore cannot validate it... More

This is my first time using the computer exclusively to attempt to learn Spanish, or study any subject, really. So far, I find it very satisfactory. I'm having a little difficulty with the Spanish keyboard is there not an "inverted" ? Moderators note: If you are using the keyboard on Write it! just click the "Shift" button and ¿ will be at top right of the keyboard... 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 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 thought that rocket languages for Arabic was good for what it is. Nothing can substitute actual immersion in the language with live native speakers, but shy of that, rocket languages helps one who has a busy full time schedule like me, to squeeze in a few minutes of Arabic every day here and there...

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...
