Rocket French — Caumont , France
I have only just started the course which is fine so far. My criticism would be that it does not reflect the way people talk in France. No one has ever said salut to me and the standard greeting is bonjour

Very friendy interface. Now i'm learning my fifth language with rocket. Enjoing accessibilty. Mobile version helps greatly. Thanks. My son likes rocket too. Maybe it would be helpful to add more verb drills.
Rocket Spanish — United States
I've only had the program for a week. So far I'm enjoying it. I wish they could add podcasts like Duolingo has. I haven't used customer services so I really can't comment to that. But the sign up was easy.
Rocket Japanese — United States
My husband and I watch a lot of Japanese television like anime and some regular TV shows and thought how awesome it would be to actually be able to understand what the characters are saying without having to read subtitles. We also would like to take a trip to Japan in the future. We were both reluctant to start learning Japanese because we've heard how difficult it can be and that it takes years to become just somewhat fluent.
Rocket Italian — Lake Oswego, OR , United States
I absolutely love Rocket Italian. I have tried Duo Lingo and Rosetta Stone and this is by far the most effective program I've used. This program is unique in that you hear new vocabulary and grammatical concepts in the context of a conversation and then delve in to the grammar after seeing it in context.
Rocket French — Charlotte NC , United States
I used Pimsleur courses before. This is equally as good, but I am using exclusively in a car. The Pimsleur is better in a car as the lessons automatically come on to the next lesson and the program keeps track of where you are and Apple CarPlay controls work better than Rockets. The arocketvwoukd be better if it were seamless to a CarPlay experience.
Rocket Chinese — United States
I like the Chinese course. It is thorough and challenging especially if you go through all the exercises from the 20 to 30 minute speaking presentation and continue to the last - the quiz. I like the speaking the best. Even thou I can't seem to pronounce the second tone or the vowel u. But I am learning. I would recommend it to my friends. I do wish the comments from people in my course would follow the same as the reviews. That is the latest comments come first and not at the end! I also find the writing part really challenging. There is a keyboard to write in pinyin and you get instant feedback.
Rocket Japanese — ON , Canada
I am surprised to be enjoying learning Japanese. It IS challenging and takes effort, but the (literally) infinite patience of the instructors and light-hearted nature of the instruction keep it enjoyable. Teaching with conversations initially seems daunting. but it's broken down so well, that you will feel accomplishment by lesson's end. 4 stars on the service only because I haven't needed it yet.
Rocket Spanish — Ontario, CA , United States
Muchas Gracias. Soy aprendiendo espanol para rocket!
I love that rocket makes learning fun and it’s easy to get caught up in the lessons so that you hardly know how much time you have put in studying. Rocket makes learning and studying a language something enjoyable and not a chore to be done.
Rocket Spanish — Burlington , Canada
I've taken several college level Spanish courses and learned words and conjugations but very little speaking and that is my weakness. I started with the first lesson on Rocket, and I found the hearing, speaking, and reading along with immediate reinforcement has really helped my ability to communicate in Spanish. I've just finished the first section of level 1 and my confidence has improved.
