Rocket French — Zurich , Switzerland
So far (I am only on Lesson 1.3) the experience is good. The conversation is applicable to everyday life - and I am looking forward to using these phrases, as they stick in my head and on my tongue, next week on a business trip to Paris. I need to keep practicing saying the phrases, and comparing my pronunciation and word rhythm with the recordings.
Rocket Spanish — United States
It is too frustrating. It doesn’t always understand what I am saying, even if I am saying it correctly. I don’t think I should have to know every ñ, é, á etc. when I am writing. It takes way too long. Need to shorten the lessons. I haven’t been doing them b/c I get too frustrated when it doesn’t understand me.
Rocket German — Greenwood , United States
My favorite part of Rocket Language German is the spoken conversation in a dialogue. Hearing a native speaker hold a short conversation and then dissecting the conversation piece by piece is very useful. I am able to hear the flow of conversation and not just learn words or sentences. They may already or may want to include a bit more about the grammar process. I am just getting started but when I was learning Spanish some of the rules did help...even though they can be painful to learn..haha.
Rocket Spanish — Denmark
I am very impressed with this course. The podcasts are very well made, and I love that they are the main part - you can practice also when doing other things (even though it feels a bit weird to speak random Spanish words in public...) and the different possibilities for repetition are making everything less repetitive and boring. When I learn new words and sentences I need to both say them out loud and write them down, so it's great to have this possibility inside the course.
Rocket French — United States
Overall a good course - perhaps a few too many bells and whistles. In the French course the instructor needs to speak MUCH more slowly and enunciate more clearly. Speaking too fast, especially in the early stages, does NOT provide the student with proper pronunciation. It may be the way many French people speak day to day, but you need to learn the proper way to say things before speaking rapidly. I speak some French and what I'm hearing is not clear for a new student to learn properly.
Rocket Hindi — Quebec , Canada
I love travelling and learning languages while doing so! It's not always easy to find a way to learn well, a system, a teacher, etc... Now that I've discovered Rocket I feel so happy because I know i can keep on going and learn different languages in a fun, easy, complete and practical way. This course is really awesome! To be honest I'm a bit addicted. I tell to myself that today I will only do 30 minutes and 2 hours later I'm still on, learning more and more.
Rocket French — Arlington, MA , United States
I have used Rosetta Stone and Berlitz in the past to become comfortable with Italian and German before trips. I found both of those much easier than Rocket. The English accent of the narrator makes it hard to follow, and the pace is very slow, which leads me to get distracted mid-lesson.
Rocket Russian — South Lyon , United States
The course is very good! I've just started and have almost completed my first lesson. The lessons are well organized and the writing is very helpful! I have not had much time to invest in my learning, but at least now I could properly greet smeone!
Rocket Spanish — Clinton Township, MI , United States
I LOVE this course! It's hands-down one of the best ways to learn a new language. After learning new words in one lesson, the following lessons reinforces what has already been learned by allowing us to listen to a real conversation. So, we are not only memorizing words, we're getting a chance to hear the words spoken. We can listen to conversations over and over until we fully understand what is being said.

Rocket is absolutely brilliant. The way to learn a language is to see it, speak it, and write it. It is obvious a lot of thought has gone into the way the system is set up, from starting off with commonly used sentences, to gradually working in spelling, pronunciation, grammar, language, and cultural lessons. There are so many great features, like being able to record and play back conversations, using flashcards, spelling reviews, etc. I'm a new user, but I've used other off-line and on-line language courses for Spanish, and Rocket French is far superior. Sometimes the cheapest way to do something is to pay for it, and that is true in this case. It is money well worth spending.
