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 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!
Rocket Korean — California
I highly recommend this to non-native speakers because it provides vocabs and lots of quizzes/tests to work on your skills. It is a good beneficial recourse tool to help out with learning a new language. It is great for beginners who have no knowledge of the language and the app comes in handy for those who are on the go.
Rocket Italian — Arlington VA , United States
I like the approach especially since it has been updated and revised. I took about 2 mos off for travel in Italy. The early lessons and practice using through Rocket Italian was very helpful and added a lot of enjoyment to the trip.
Rocket French — Camas, WA , United States
I have many programs such as Francais Authentique, Fluenz French, Rosetta Stone, etc., but I like Rocket programs because it allows me to practice to listen and talk. You can learn grammar by books but getting accustomed to French and actually to voice some phrases, this is very good. I would like to listen to TV5 or RFI and understand them with ease some day.
Its a very useful tool to help improve language skills with excellent breakdown of sentences and explanations on why things are said. It helps if you have a basic knowledge of the language beforehand.
