Rocket Japanese — London , United Kingdom
Best learning app/ website I have used highly recommend to everyone but I don't know why I have to write like 200 characters for a review i might not even get to 200 but I'm going to milk it as much as i can it really is a good app i only have 7 day free trial but i am going to pay for the whole thing because it really is the best i have come across
Rocket Russian — United States
Rocket misses the mark in many ways. Teaching phrases without a literal translation is not helpful. Ideally, one should know what each word in the sentence is, so that one can then compose one's own sentences. Additionally, the speakers speak very quickly and one can't really tell how they are pronouncing the words in spite of having them spelled out in cyrillic.
Rocket Japanese — California , United States
Thank you so much for re-recording the Japanese modules entirely with native speakers so that we can have an immersion experience in Japanese. That is so important. I found the original, non-native Kenny's voice to be very jarring. It is so much more pleasant to listen to the gentle speaking voice of the native male speaker. The format has always been excellent and I'll be devoting more time to Rocket lessons now.
Rocket Italian — Cali , Colombia
I believe that the Rocket Languages Italian course is very useful and helps to obtain a basic level of understanding rapidly. I think that it is more efficient compared with now obsolete CD and audiotape courses that I have taken. It could be improved by adding a visual component, such as pictures of objects and foods that are mentioned.
Rocket Italian — La Plata/Maryland , United States
I met a Italian online and just wanted to learn to say Good Bye said this was Free and I like that price FREE FREE FREE I AM ON DISABILITY AND NOT WORKING SO THIS APP IS NO GOOD TO ME AT ALL but if I had the money I would pay it Chow
Rocket Korean — Germany
I've been practicing korean every night after work for the last two weeks, and it's really fun so far! For me this program is way better to study with than with a textbook, because you have to actually speak and write instead of just reading.
Rocket Spanish — Canada
Wow. Way too many FAQ’s, As a retired language teacher I was hoping for something that was student-friendly but not so in this case. Far too complicated re:Technology.
No thanks- think I’ll join a face-to-face class!
Rocket Spanish — Chino hills, CA , United States
The microphone on the trial program worked fine until I purchased the Spanish 1-3, then the microphone stopped working. I loaded the program onto another device, the microphone worked, but the 'play' button did not work!
Very difficult to concentrate when there are so many technical difficulties with the program.
Rocket Spanish — Charleston, South Carolina , United States
At first I thought that the length of the interactive audio lessons would be a turn off, but it turns out they are actually really fun and engaging. Even more importantly, I am learning a lot! I just started using it, I went through the free trial (which I love that they offer) and then bought the program. I like that I can print out the transcripts of the lesson too. Visualizing what I am saying is important, especially for reading skills. I am very happy with the product, although I would not have been able to afford it if it was not on sale. Overall, would highly recommend if you are serious about learning a language. It is lifetime access so it is a good investment.
Rocket Japanese — Toronto , Canada
Love everything so far, but I’ve noticed that you are changing the voice actors with the audio files. In my opinion, I’d prefer the original combination of the English Kenny and the ‘Osaka’ kansai-jin Sayaka...especially Sayaka, whose accent, in both nihongo-ga and eigo-ga is very helpful in terms of realistic Japanese phonetics. The new Sayaka is less ‘endearing’ and the new Kenny-san has perhaps a too refined Kanto-style accent.
