Rocket Chinese — Netherlands
So far I am really enjoying the Rocket program for Chinese. I think if I had chosen any other language to study my progress would be much faster, but with the Chinese I am going slowly because I am trying to learn the characters at the same time as the spoken language. So I don't proceed to the next lesson until I can comfortably write the characters. I learn the spoken phrases quickly, but the written characters come more slowly. It feels almost I am learning two languages at the same time. I don't know if I am supposed to concentrate so much on the writing, and maybe I should progress faster through the audio. I'm not even sure there is a right way to do it. But anyway, I am having fun with it, and I am glad I bought it.
Rocket Russian — PENNSYLVANIA , United States
Rocket language is amazing. I've purchased the Chinese, Arabic, and Russian. You will not find a better language learning resource out there period. The affordable price (especially on sale days) is only the cherry on top. Rocket languages is user friendly, and there's literally SO MUCH material and lessons conveniently in the app. All it takes is clicking on the app, no repeated logging in necessary and you are ready to go.
Rocket Japanese — United States
Love it thus far. But the pace seems to be picking up rather quickly. For example i feel they are not leave enough time in between word or parses for you to repeat when compared to previous lessons. Don't get me wrong i expected it to eventually speed up but i'm only on the third lesson. I've found myself having to review this lesson a lot more then the first two because it was so hard to keep up at first. Even so i still really enjoy Rocket Japanese as you can tell form the start of my review and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to learn Japanese.
Rocket French — New Zealand
I am taking the French course but I find the man talks way too much in English with annoying 'jokes'. Sorry but listening to him makes it difficult for me to continue and I loose interest. Over half the lessons are in translated English or him talking.The price for the course is good and I haven't had to use customer service to comment.
Rocket German — Berlin , Germany
I am satisfied with the service and I have a suggestion what can be improved further. I like the idea of a comprehensive course available at any time. What I miss is downloadable audios - not the dialogues, but the phrases. The phrases are extremely important and helpful in learning a language. I could easily skip dialogues (I don't), let alone those long 25-minute audios with lots of talk in English (enjoyable but mostly waste of time to be honest, too much of unnecessary chatter).
Rocket Spanish — United States
I love this program, you get so much material for a great price. I use Rocket Spanish in combination with Pimsleur Spanish. And im having great success. If you give this program a month you will surely be able to speak and understand basic conversations. In my opinion no one Spanish program will completely make you fluent, but this is a good start.
Rocket Russian — IL , United States
Rocket Languages is very helpful to learn Russian, and has many step by step courses that help in advancing my knowledge of Russian slowly and effectively. I like how in the beginning, there are not too many hard words to pronounce but as you go along it advances. I also like how it can correct how you pronounce words which helps a lot in knowing if I am saying the word(s) right or not.
Rocket Italian — Denmark
I have always been interested in Italian culture, and I thought while I am still young, I want to pursue my dream of speaking the language. I searched through the internet both on forums, reddit, youtube etc. and ended up purchasing all levels of the Italian course. I haven't been doing too many lessons, but so far satisfied with the courses. Especially the chemistry within the two teachers is entertaining :)
Rocket Italian — Brazil
Terrible experience with the Rocket Languages. I have been struggling to find a motivation to keep studying but the boring experience that the platform gives you doesn't lead you anywhere. It's just a bunch of "repeat" this, "repeat "that" that you will be closing the browser before finishing the audio lesson. Not only that, the lack of explanation that the teachers give you and makes you need to find other places to learn it's absurd. If I knew this experience would go on, I would have chosen Google Translator instead. If I could come back, I wouldn't buy.
Rocket Spanish — Belleville, MI , United States
It's like a classroom setting that focuses most on the important parts of a language. Yes, knowing the word is important, but being able to ask for it is more helpful in communication. Rocket Languages is great to get you conversational ASAP, without bogging you down with grammar that can come with time.
