I was looking around the internet where I can learn Chinese, I saw a lot of sites and tried most of their free trial including Rocket Languages. For most of the other sites, I didn't survive using their free trial for even a day, but for Rocket Languages, I survived up to the end of the free trial and now I'm about to buy my own subscription. I liked how Rocket Languages teaches people like Chinese. I hope that in a few months I'll be able to talk with some of my Chinese friends.

Nice software... I don't know if this has character writing for Chinese. For those wondering this is better then Rosetta Stone. Hopefully I will stay motivated and learn Chinese like I've always wanted to do! Take the chance I try this out, maybe you will like it

I've spent years trying to find a language learning program that I can stick with but make real progress on - Rocket Chinese is that program! The price is comparable with a 10 weeks in-person language course - but you get far more material! I love that each piece of information is presented in multiple ways, and there are so many ways to review.

I feel that for the price that i had paid for this course ,it is worth eüery cent .A lot of effort and thinking must haüe been put into the construction of this course.

Rocket Chinese is a great learning tool where you can learn Pinyin (Chinese Alphabet), Chinese characters, and audio. I found the price extremely reasonable compared to other programs of equal quality. My only concern is their translation from Chinese to English. They present a rough translation to what the sentence means and sometimes a very loose translation. I would like to see in addition to their translation, a word to word translation so the student can grasp what each word actually means.

Your program is fine and efficient. Nevertheless the dialogues are a little boring ("Beijing seems to be a big city" , well, who doesn't know it?) and there is a BIG mistake in lesson 5.5 Places worth checking out in Beijing (the quizz) : the Great Wall of China CANNOT be seem from the moon ! Check it if you don't believe me. It's a myth !!!

So the program is pretty decent. Using Rocket will definitely increase proficiency. The most frustrating part of the platform by far is the new voice recording system -it's extremely slow and very un-responsive. It slows down the whole learning process. Customer service is cumbersome process but based on the cost of the program, it's not fair to expect that much.

I looked into different options, from intensive Chinese lessons to online applications like Rocket languages. Ultimately, I realized that I was going to get the same learning without spending thousands of euro. This application is superbly done and the voice recognition is simply amazing. I strongly recommend. I'm making great progress and feel that I'm going to be able to survive on my next trip and more...

It has all the right content, but in all the wrong order. After struggling with the early lessons I realized I had to start each lesson at the bottom, learn the simple words and phrases and then make my way up to the longer stuff at the top/beginning.
Then after struggling with 5 lessons of long, complex multisyllabic structures, they finally introduce you to the endings and tone pronunciations. This means that the lesson structure is in the wrong order too.

A great online tool to teach you how to get the nuances down of the Mandarin language. Topics covered are relevant and assist in everyday conversation. Also, cannot beat the price versus the competition.
