Rocket German — United States
Overall, I've enjoyed the Rocket German product. It would be very helpful to have a set of audio control buttons (play/pause/rewind 3 sec) positioned directly beneath the Quick Settings on the left margin of the web page for the interactive lessons. When I listen to the interactive lessons on a computer, I constantly have to scroll from the line in the lesson back to the top of the page to pause/replay a word/phrase. Similarly, a rewind 3 sec button on the phone version is desperately needed. Lastly, I would like to see a video option for the Language & Culture Lessons. Reading through all of this is a little dry. I want to watch/hear an instructor saying these words/phrases. Thanks
Rocket Japanese — Guernsey , United Kingdom
I have really enjoyed learning Japanese with Rocket Languages. It is a real challenge but the course gave me the confidence to travel solo to Japan earlier this year. I was really pleased to have a basic knowledge as there were plenty of occasions when no English was spoken. Rocket Languages also gave me an understanding of Japanese culture which is very different. It is an amazing country and I plan to continue my studies to improve my Japanese ready for a return visit.
Rocket Japanese — Rome , Italy
I've tried out many apps to learn Japanese, and no matter how many I tried, I always come back to Rocket Languages!
Unlike many other apps, once you get Rocket Japanese your membership is lifelong, no need to update your subscription. That's a really worthwhile investment. Ah, and of course their learning method and organization of studies is great (I can save pdf of ALL lessons to repeat even offline).
Rocket Spanish — United Kingdom
The accent is laughable. As in, my spanish friends couldn't stop laughing. It's Mexican spanish, in a bad accent. The plays and lessons are mired in stereotypes, sexist, and awful. As far as actually learning Spanish goes, I'm struggling on with it, but I can't say it's really helped so far. Hopefully it will start sticking, but having spent six weeks in Madrid recently, I didn't feel this course helped me at all, and I was still struggling with even the most basic conversations.
Rocket Chinese — Alpharetta/ GA , United States
There is no functionality to allow you to quickly click on a word that you don't know to figure out what it means. Instead you have to wait through the painstakingly slow audio to hear someone tell you what it means. Very frustrating, especially if you're like me and learn better through seeing.
Rocket Japanese — Croton on Hudson
I am really enjoying my Rocket Japanese experience so far. You all have really created a very well rounded system for learning a new language. I love the diversity of information and mediums of teaching.
Rocket Spanish — Nottingham
Rocket Spanish is a revelation! At first glance the trial lesson looked like a lot of "fragmented" vocabulary to take on board. However, once started it quickly turns into a trail of gradual understanding. The "bite-sized" treatment of the material quickly turns into a game and you are gradually drawn into completing each section.
Rocket Italian is great! I believe there is one mistake in lesion 5.7 The section heading past perfect tense is actually the present perfect tense. Thus far I am really enjoying this course. It is a great way to learn Italian, the language of all my grandparents whom were born in the area around Torino. My wife and I enjoy Italy. She is impressed that I can use my Italian there.
Rocket Italian — Karup J
Compared to the French and Spanish language that I have learned years back, then the Italian language grammar Is easy, to understand and follow. To have my fantastic two teachers to pronounce all the words and the grammar in a way that makes the essence of the words and grammar sinks in, so that I can remember the words and sentences, has given me a fantastic start, and I have therefore decided to by all three levels of Italian at ones.
Rocket French — Rancho Cordova, CA , United States
I love the various methods the syllabus takes you through in order to ensure you're getting the material. I never thought I would get writing French at all since I was just at the introductory level, but the repetition of marking how you thought you did until you get them all right really helps to get it down. Sometimes I feel like I sound like a cheesy robot trying to get the exact right inflections but I just remind myself to learn it and later when I actually know what I'm doing I can sound like myself speaking French right? I love how they have a woman and a man as well. It helps in hearing the sounds. The accents over letters are going to be hard for me but I've only just started so I'm sure that will get better!
