Rocket Japanese — Ohio , United States
I've used Rocket Languages for two languages now (Korean and Japanese) and have yet to regret either purchase. Rocket Languages is, in my opinion, a straight-forward and effective interface for all of my language needs.
I even use the program to brush up on advanced Spanish skills from time to time and have seen good results in a reasonable time frame. No doubt one of my better investments of both time and money!
Rocket Chinese — New Zealand
I find there is generally too much preamble getting into each dialogue - too much from the English guy especially. Ironically, he seems to be talking as though adressing an ESOl class . However, as a native speaker, I find his delivery and Uk accent quite amateurish. E.g he says "wiv" instead of " with" etc. just irritating. Also, I am disappointed that he is used in dialogues when his Mandarin accent is not spot-on. Just model the genuine accent by using a Chinese speaker for each dialogue. Also, in the 2nd Premium pack, the upgrade, I wouldn't have bothered buying it had I known it involved a module devoted to planning a wedding - relevant to about 5% at best of your the average audience.
Rocket Korean — Duluth, MN , United States
Definitely helpful to hear native Koreans speaking and the forms of testing made sure that i remember what i learned in the lesson. I would recommend this site to anyone who wants to practice their pronunciation. The site is very organized and easy to navigate. The tools are very useful. All in all, this is a good site.

The voice recognition works pretty well. It struggles with very short sounds, but overall very good. I've used other programs that ask you to speak the answers, but the pronunciation analysis makes me try much harder to say each response out loud.
The romaji is good for beginners, but already know hiragana and katakana, so the romaji is very distracting. I wish there was an option to turn off romaji so I can practice reading. --Moderators note: The romanized version of the phrases can be toggled on/off under your profile.--
Rocket Chinese — Mundelein / IL , United States
I really like the format on the website. And I really like that it has a mobile app. However I travel a lot and the time I have most available to practice Chinese is when I am on a plane. You can download the MP3 files but I really wish the APP would allow you to cache the sections you are working on so they worked on a plane. Overall I think it is a good value. and I like the program but I just wish it was more tailored to working off line.
Rocket Russian — Austin/TX , United States
I was both very pleased and surprised with Rocket Languages. Never has learning a language felt so effortless. The combination of many different learning styles is very helpful, and really helps immerse yourself in the language and experience. The voice recognition algorithm is a great learning tool, and really makes me feel like I am being taught by an instructor.
Rocket Spanish has truly helped me have a better life because my boyfriend is Mexican and we would argue because of not being able to communicate. I'm so happy now and so is my boyfriend, now husband. Thanks rocket Spanish. Pamela Roach
Rocket Japanese — Tyne & Wear
I think the course if excellent. It certainly is tailored for the beginner but does give help on Japanese grammar. I love it. One irritation - the musical intro to the lessons - is it necessary! Drives me nuts.
Disappointed with not being able to download on android, windows, or apple platforms. This defeats the purpose of my purchase - wanted to listen during work drive. Also app not allowing the voice option. Why browser version only?
Not able to take quiz on android app.
Rocket Japanese — India
Learning a language is possible not by only going through books but by actually implementing it in your daily speech and hearing the correct pronunciations. And ROCKET JAPANESE has made it possible! They give you a chance to speak, practice and even explain simple conversations that every tourist will need. Not only that, There are tests which enhances learning process. Rocket Japanese rocks!
