Rocket Italian — Rome , Italy
Learning Italian through Rocket Languages has been a breeze compared to other methods I have tried so far. The possibility of actually speaking the language, participate in a conversation, write the words and sentences is a perfect mix. In my own pace I can make myself acquainted with new words and sentences and if necessary repeat exercises until I'm completely familiar with them. In addition, the theory provides more (relevant) insight on how to use the language.
Rocket Spanish — Stamford/CT , United States
I’m very impressed by the ease of presentation, the many tools available for listening, reading, and writing the language, and the useful conversational vocabulary. I have studied several other languages but none have been so enoyable as the Spanish Rocket course I am taking. I will be well prepared for my trip to Spain next summer.
Rocket Spanish — Panama City , Panama
I am truly enjoying this language learning program. I like that the audio lessons involve you and make you come up with the answers on your own before supplying them to you. I feel that this is really helpful because that is the hardest part for me when speaking Spanish. I am starting to be able to understand spoken conversation better, but have a hard time coming up with the words myself. I feel very inadequate at times because I say Si a lot and not much else at this point.
Rocket Japanese — Boulder/Colorado , United States
Rocket Japanese is really helping me learn. I've been around Japanese martial arts most of my life and always wanted to communicate in Japanese with some of our visiting instructors. I'm not quite ready yet, but I am definitely headed that way, thanks to your program. And, I've started a Trip to Japan coin can. Tokyo by 2020!!
Rocket French — United Kingdom
I've used many language learning courses, and have found this one to be particularly impressive. I think the writing aspect of new vocabulary is vital, and something that tends to be overlooked by other methods; the ease of revision is also a major point in its favour, through flashcards, repeating activities already done, and so on. I've been using this for French, and would certainly consider purchasing a package for another language. The free trial was also a great way of allowing me to make up my mind before investing in the course. I'd certainly recommend this to anyone else seeking an effective way of starting a language.
Rocket Chinese — Canada
Well designed course that combines visual, audio, written, quizzes, flash cards and reminders along with a little humour. It's a very well designed program.
The online computer version has an advantage. It records your spoken phrases so you can play them back to compare pronunciation with the native speaker. This is great! The iPhone version lacks that feature. It grades your spoken response but you can't hear your spoken response. Overall, I'm very impressed with the educational design and the usefulness of Rocket Chinese. Very well done! I used both the computer and my iPhone for practice. I like both versions. It's the best language learning course I've seen, by far.
Rocket Italian — Stockholm , Sweden
The guy, Alex, in the Italian course comes across as a somewhat of a douche. He tries to be funny by pretending to flirt with the co host, Maria, but it just feels awkward. It might just be me, but I would prefer if they just sticked to the language material.
Rocket Spanish — VALRICO , United States
I just started Spanish and this product is superior to all other Language programs. I will be using their programs for learning other languages as well! I feel more comfortable learning with Rocket Language
Rocket Arabic — Alaska , United States
Just completed the introductory course in Rocket Arabic and it was very approachable. Arabic has a reputation for high difficulty but the way the information was presented in the lesson kept the experience from feeling overwhelming. I am looking forward to my second lesson after I practice the first a few times more.
Rocket French — United Kingdom
I had a trial and bought 3 level courses all together straight way. It’s the best learning experience so far, better than the evening class I attended 8 years ago. Leaderboard points system, Voice recognition and reinforcement tasks make learning more fun and efficient. It works well for my lifestyle as I work full time.
I have used it for 11 days and I am very pleased with my progress so far. Thank you! I am aiming to finish level1 by the end of the year. I will update my progress after that. Good luck everyone!
