Rocket Japanese — San Francisco Bay Area , United States
I have had the opportunity to try the lessons for about a week and I am very pleased. I'm older, so, it may take me a little longer to be able to memorize, but, I am able to track/understand and follow the program. I believe that it is a very good value for the money. I look forward to writing another review in about 6 months with progress results. Thank you!
Rocket Italian — United Kingdom
I am coming to the end of the second module in Level 1 Italian after a few weeks of studying for about an hour per day. I like the structure of the course overall and enjoy the various methods used to help the language penetrate my slow brain! At times there does seem to be a slight disconnect though in the sense that the ‘language and culture’ sections which follow the situational interactive audio lessons provide information that would have been useful to know prior to commencing the latter.
Rocket Korean — United States
The program is very easy to get used to. It helps keep you interested in the language, and gives you real world examples. The only thing I would like is more information about writing and reading. Otherwise this is a great program for anyone wanting to learn a new language.
Rocket Spanish — California , United States
Multiple learning techniques, great for visual as well as auditory learners. My granddaughter enjoys learning with me. Easy way to learn conversational languages . Although the recorder doesn't always work it still helps me learn.
Rocket Japanese — Massachusetts , United States
I started about 4 days ago and have put in about 15-20 hours studying because it is so much fun. I have not felt bored or overwhelmed at all even when faced with the thousands of kanji to remember. I love the pace the audio lessons setup to begin with. Although, the third lesson in particular was tough to keep up with but it seems to just be an editing mistake not leaving enough time to repeat the phrases. I have had an amazing experience and have learned so much so far.
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).
