I enjoy these lessons very much. They are easy to use and learn from. The annunciation, for the most part, is very understandable and easy to repeat after. I enjoy the quizzes and wish I had a microphone attached to my computer so I could record my own phrases... More

I am studying Italian in Siena for eight weeks, going to a school in the mornings and using Rocket Italian in the afternoons. I enjoy the variety of the subjects covered and especially like the quiz. I am surrounded by the language at present but will find this course invaluable when I get home to Wales... More

This program has been very helpful for me. I studied German grammar with another book before using this program, but I found that unless I learned how to speak the language, I wasn't going to be able to remember vocabulary... More

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.

Rocket gives me flexibility to learn when I want to. And I can learn at my own pace. The lessons are fun and challenging with a nice mix of spoken and written language. The chunk style of learning is very effective in getting a quick feel for the language... More

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

The Rocket Chinese course is comprehensive and contains a good variety of tools. There are a couple negatives though. The main one is that the male voice actor's pronunciation is not very good. That's a huge drawback when you're trying to learn to pronounce a language correctly... More

I am enjoying the audio lessons and I particularly like the additional explanations on grammar points and the way they ask you to apply the learning in different ways. It would be great if this learning approach was also applied to the revision exercises, which do a good job of consolidating the phrases in the audio lesson (even if it is a little too repetitive) but don't stretch you to apply the underlying grammar principles to new situations...

I am learning Rocket French and i do enjoy listening to the audio lessons in the car.. My only criticism is that i wish there were more audio lessons. Also the quiz section for the language and culture lessons are frustrating, it only tests you on the words/sentences that are listed and maybe should be testing more on the actual theory behind the subject...

I love this program. I am learning so much, although the premium program is a little expensive. But, I'm going to Italy in a few months and I feel very confident and I'm doing very well. I have a couple suggestions: 1) I would like an area or a quick "free" App to write a few of my own sentences or words to practice (instead of bringing a tablet or paper to do this), and this App will write it out in Italian (or visa versa in English); and 2) Do you have an App where I can open it up without Wifi? To open while I'm in Airplane Mode? I have a competitors App on my phone to do this but it is not as good as Rocket Languages)... More

Rocket Spanish is pretty good. It's certainly better than other programs I have tried. Every so often it tests you on words you haven't learned. In one case it ends Module 1 with a survival kit of a list of 300 words, then assumes you know them in Module 2... More
