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.

I am taking the Italian course and it's been great so far. The recorded dialogues are clear and engaging and increase difficulty at an appropriate rate. I am actually surprised at how motivating the point system is -- I find myself staying longer to complete course work and rack up points... More

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...

I have a lot of fun learning a new language on this website because of the little achievements that you can get. Usually I never liked learning another language, like in High School, because it was so boring, but somehow it is more fun and enjoyable on this website... More

A great way to get your feet wet to a number of different languages. A lot of effort has gone into the courses and while there are still some bugs to be worked out like spelling mistakes and videos that are to fast for a beginner, the courses can be an entertaining way to get used to speaking different languages...

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 ! I believe if I indulge myself in Rocket Language every day, I can smoothly live in Paris as an exchange student five months later. More

I don't know as for other languages, but Rocket French is very useful if you want to master the French pronunciation and improve your accent. Since French is a difficult language to speak, this course stresses the speaking part, a feature you are not going to find in books if you are learning on your own... More

It's okay, it should go into more detail and provide lessons about writing in Japanese, as well as the speaking ones. I like pie as well, make a lesson about pie and fat potatoes. That's it. Byeeeeeee!!! More
