Rocket Spanish — Richardson / Texas , United States
Very happy with course. I’m doing all of it on my phone so website doesn’t reflect my lessons progress.
If I had to mention any one thing that’s been disappointing, it would be that I wish there were more interactive audio. Language and culture sections are good, but I find it difficult to click through them. Practice is Essential! Overall very please with what I’ve learned to date. Seriously considering buying into next part of course. Great program!

Nothing "awesome" to say. I thought you wanted my honest, candid feedback. Still waiting for help on the problem of inserting special characters in the writing practice section of lessons. Rocket told me I must wait two to four days.
I get the impression Rocket also doesn't teach grammar either—at least not overtly. Disappointing. What's your return policy?
Rocket French — Moorpark, California , United States
Just started but after having tried out several others, love the way this program works. Hopefully I will continue to move smoothly from lesson to lesson. This is a great way to review a language you have previously learned and want to come back to.

Very polished application. I like that you can learn at your own pace, and that you are learning Spanish used in everyday conversations. I also like how each lesson is framed into a real life scenario, this helps put me into a situation I feel would actually happen. The only takeaway is that I wish each lesson's test portion was longer/more challenging, but this is supplemented by the end-of-module comprehensive test. Overall, very pleased with the Rocket Spanish product.
Rocket Spanish — Queensland , Australia
After practicing on Duo Lingo for a month and taking an interest in learning Spanish I was ready to take the next step and go into a language course and Rocket languages stood out from the rest for a few reasons. I was really excited to try the free lessons before being drawn in by the excellent price for the full course.
Rocket Spanish — Canada
I really enjoy the progressive and structural depth of each lesson--hearing a conversation, translating every word, repeating words and phrases, seeing the words written, having my pronunciation compared, flash cards--I can't imagine a better way of doing it!
I also love the daily scoring competition to stimulate a regular learning--I just want to keep extending my streak! It has been fun so far!
Rocket Japanese — Honolulu Hawaii , United States
This is by far the best language program I have tried. It's very engaging and very informative. Yes, you can learn phrases prior to learning the grammar but I feel it's easier to hear those phrases and understand what they mean first. Then break it down to no what each is what. From there I can add new vocab I learnt and use them in different phrases to get my meaning across. This allows me to feel more comfortable conversing with others that speak the language. This software gives almost everything you need in learning a new language. From practice conversations (yes you speak instead of just memorizing with no speech practice), to the writing system. This is an amazing program and I'm glad I purchased it!
Rocket Japanese — Livonia , United States
Rocket Japanese has helped me with my Japanese class in school, and allowed me to catch up because i had fell behind. It is a great system. I highly recommend it to any one wanting to learn Japanese. I'm even having fun with it. Rocket Japanese really can help if you just want to start understanding some anime, because not all of the CC translations are right.
Rocket French — United States
The interface is excellent, and the lesson design is excellent. I've tried Rosetta Stone and another program before, and I find Rocket French far better.
The voice recognition, however, is lame. Short words are near impossible. My accent is doubtless awful, but I can mutter a vulgar epithet and get 25%, whereas it will tell me, "Sorry, I didn't get that" on repeat efforts at "gros." This feature sorely needs work.
Rocket Japanese — National Capital Region , Philippines
I'm learning much more than I thought was possible online and having a good deal of fun Rocket Languages really gave me the tools to succeed with my new language .I love the way the process tests you not only on your memory but also on your enunciation of the language. Many times my intonation is not what it should be and the system catches it. Thank you Rocket Language
