Rocket Chinese — Bavaria
Rocket Chinese has a lot of interesting features, but some don't seem to work as intended. I tried many times to do the testing...but somehow, it never registers when I do the speaking, although the microphone displays the profile it should have...lately the vocabulary did not seem to register eiter anymore when I put words into it.

I speak French and English and wanted to upgrade my Chinese because of my wife, her family and friends so they don't have to say things twice. All I can say is that I look forward every day to blocking off that 40 minutes, making some coffee and working my a Rocket lesson.
The Instructors are great and my Chinese is getting stronger. I heard about Rocket while reading reviews on language lessons. I know my language program companies well and Rocket is one of the elite programs at any learning level.
I used Rocket Languages as a valid help in learning languages. It is incredible how fast you can learn with only 30 minutes a day. I am learning Mandarin, and, believe me, the course is great. Do not pay too much attention to who tells you learning Chinese is impossible, and online courses do not work. You should see the face of my Chinese colleagues and customers when they hear me speaking Mandarin. Now, they are the ones who think: "That's impossible!"

This approach was so much easier for me. It helped that the information is chunked, this means I can make time in my busy schedule as well as not feeling overwhelmed by the information being presented. Certainly the value for the money is excellent, especially compared to other language programs.

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.
This program provided me with the audio I need to feel more comfortable with my Chinese class. I do like it but was a little disappointed that my account did not update when I purchased the premium plus. I hope this will be fixed in a timely manner.
Overall, I think this program is worth the investment I will recommend it to my classmates

On the plus side, the website is attractive and functions well. The interactive lessons are well-structured and nicely done. I appreciate that they make continued improvements, such as the addition of Write It in the testing sections. Also appreciate that both sound and text are downloadable and the website allows you to listen to only the parts of the lessons you want. I haven't taken advantage of any "social" features like the Forum but I appreciate that Rocket tries to foster a community.
Rocket Chinese — Wujiang/Jiangsu
I am just restarting to learn Mandarin using Rocket Chinese because I had been too busy teaching and building new courses at my current school in China.
Positive: 1. Listening, Reading (in pinyin - latin script and Simplified - chinese script), Writing (initially in pinyin) and speaking is available from the very first lesson. 2. Step by step in a logical fashion based on what would seem to be logical needs of a person new to learning the language. 3.
I highly recommend Rocket Languages. The online courses are excellent and very user friendly. As a beginner in Mandarin, I really appreciated the pace and teaching style of the instructors. I especially appreciated the explanations related to grammar. I was so impressed that I purchased an additional license for Level 1 for a family member and purchased Level 2 for myself. I'm looking forward to continuing on with Level 3 once it's released. Customer service via email was quite helpful and quick to respond. Overall, I highly recommend this program.
Rocket Chinese — Porter, Tx
Just after one day with this program and the help of flash cards I made to help me study, I feel comfortable greeting someone in mandarin while actually knowing what I am saying, I know this will be a long journey but I feel this program will be crucial in getting me to speaking fluent mandarin!
