Rocket Languages Member Reviews
Read all about how Rocket Languages online language learning courses have helped our members on their quest to learn a language!
Rocket Spanish — Lakeland , United States
I like the audio and the repetition. I want to be able to hear and understand Spanish, not just read it. That is true of most people that learn a second language. Rocket Spanish puts more emphasis on listening and speaking than Rosetta Stone. The points system is also great because it encourages you to do more each day to earn more points.
Rocket Italian — Georgetown , Canada
Would I recommend to a friend? Already did, to all four of my immediate colleagues at work that are considering Spanish, French, Italian and Japanese.
Did Pimslueur when I was trying to learn Lithuanian for my wedding. Great for pronunciation but certainly very limited vocabulary, no grammar instruction, no book and no writing component. Very expensive on top of that. Rocket Italian seems to have all of these bases covered so that I can look forward to a true understanding of how the language works rather than parroting back audio tapes.
Rocket German — Glasgow , United Kingdom
I liked the rocket learning German course quite a lot, the several types of ways it helps you learn, either through writing questions or having you verbally repeat it back to a microphone. This all contributed to high rates of retention of the words for myself.
Rocket Japanese — United States
I just started using RocketJapanese last week, and so far I have been nothing but impressed. It's easy to use - no complicated pages within pages- and gives me exactly what I need for each lesson. I don't have to figure it out on my own. The audio lessons are interesting and easy to follow, and the teachers speak clearly so I can understand everything they're saying. And the practice tools are really easy to use! I feel like I've actually learned how to speak instead of random words that will form a sentence eventually. I've tried several learning methods prior to Rocket Languages and I'm definitely sticking to this one!
Rocket Languages is great for getting into a language right away with phrases you will use often, and then following it up with cultural lessons, which are interesting and important if you plan to visit that country.
Rocket German — Waiblingen
Rocket German is my favorite online language learning website because Interactive Audio Lessons, Voice Recognition, Language & Culture Lessons are very helpful and very easy to use. I would highly recommend this website to my friends and family.
Well organized and easy to follow. Problems with microphone seemed to cause program to loose it's place in quiz. Once I learn the navigation plan it should be easier for me. I keep backing up and learning how to move forward. It has been a while since I used the system and the changes were a bit difficult to follow.
Rocket Arabic — Wilberforce Ohio , United States
I am grateful to my Arabic instructor Ustez Ibrahim for introducing me to Rocket! It has been quite helpful to me as I am learning Arabic. I am confident that within the next few months I will be able to speak, read and write Arabic quite well. I recommend Rocket languages to anyone trying to learn a foreign language!
Rocket Italian — Spokane
Done very well. Especially for older persons like me who have trouble remembering. Glad to see you point out formal vs informal. It is not just memorizing a script, information provided gives you a understanding of what is being said. Review process at the end of each lesson is very helpful.
I like the way the lessons are structured and how they progress. It is also helpful to compare my pronunciation with the voice on the site.
I am a slow learner and have a problem hearing the words....by the time a sentence is finished, I may only be on the 3rd word!!! So pacing is very important for me.
