Rocket Languages Member Reviews
Read all about how Rocket Languages online language learning courses have helped our members on their quest to learn a language!
Rocket Chinese — United States
The Rocket Chinese course is comprehensive and contains a good variety of tools. There are a couple negatives though. The main one is that the male voice actor's pronunciation is not very good. That's a huge drawback when you're trying to learn to pronounce a language correctly. Offline use on Android is fairly minimal. It's painful to enter pinyin for exercises that use it, for instance you can't just enter dan1cheng2, you need to find a way to enter dānchéng.
Rocket Arabic — New Orleans , United States
So far I've only taken two classes in Egyptian Arabic and it's awesome ! I am so happy to finally be learning a new language.
What I really like is that the interface is great, but the content is actually quite good too ! I love the fact that the person teaching you through the audios is super nice and very encouraging. The pace (beginner) is very good because it lets you understand each word and then put them together. Most of all : it explains the roots of certain words and describe how the language actually works... So far I'm just loving it.
Rocket French — PA , United States
I am an intermediate French student, but I am starting with the beginner lessons as review because I rarely have an opportunity to listen to native French speakers or to practice speaking. I am finding the lessons very helpful to develop my "ear" and my accent. The explanations of the grammar points within the dialogues are very clear and the opportunities to practice speaking are great.
I have used several online French courses and this is by far the best, though Babbel is quite also.
Rocket Spanish — United Kingdom
Purchased the Spanish language and find it very straightforward. Takes you through step-by-step and it's fairly interactive too. Lots of opportunities to test yourself and you can go at your own pace.
Rocket Spanish — Maryland , United States
Just beginning to use Rocket Spanish and so far I like the ability to use the information in conversation, rather than just seeing endless words and phrases that generally wouldn't get used in everyday life. Much of what is taught in standard school is basic/background, which is necessary, but this helps relate to real life.
Rocket Italian — Dexter, Michigan , United States
The lessons are the perfect length about 20 minute conversation. The fun dialogue between Alex and Maria keeps it very enjoyable. I have been practicing what I have learned so far with my Italian exchange student and I am doing good!!
Rocket Spanish — St. Louis, MO , United States
I am very impressed with how easy the course is. Love the fact that they break down the conversations into sentences, where you can repeat a little at a time. Makes it easier to learn the words and how they should sound. Looking forward to being able to speak in Spanish on our next trip to Mexico
Rocket Italian — United Kingdom
When I first started learning Italian, I thought long and hard before purchasing an online learning package. I did a serious amount of research, but kept coming back to the same option. Don't get me wrong there are some really useful free courses/utilities out there, but in my opinion nothing is as comprehensive as Rocket Italian. That said, it's still worthwhile to use other apps/utilities in conjunction with this course.

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.
