Rocket Chinese — MS , United States
Not as structured as I'd like. Some of the lessons seem unnecessary, as I wouldn't use them in everyday life. I have previously used Pimsleur but thought this was a better deal. I prefer the lessons with the interactive audio kind of like Pimsleur. the other lessons aren't super helpful, but I guess they are nice to have... I wish there was more repetition of phrases instead of single words. Interface on both app and browser are outdated and could use some major updates (especially the app). Kinda buggy, but that is forgiven. I also use the hellochinese app, and it is great. Might go back to Pimsleur if it wasn't so overpriced.
Rocket Italian — New Jersey , United States
I like the program, though it goes VERY slowly and each unit is terribly long. But the biggest problem is that after working for awhle on a unit it crashes and I get a message saying "aw snap, something went wrong". This happens every day

Rocket German — CA , United States
PROS: I like the layout and the reinforcement. Some might say the course is repetitive, but I find that it actually takes that much repetition to actually stick.
CONS: The German narrators are a little too "peppy" which can get annoying, but that's ok. I would love to see the special characters (non-English) as easy buttons at the bottom of the text box, instead of having to open the keyboard every time. It really slows down the learning to do that.
Rocket Spanish — Bloomington/Indiana , United States
You can learn almost any kind of language and it translate to the language you currently speak. Platico en español todos los dias! I started using Rocket Spanish about 7 years ago, when I spoke almost no Spanish. I first visited México in 2007, with maybe 10 words. Thanks to Rocket Spanish, I was able to move to México and I can now speak with people every day. I especially liked being able to practice in my car, so I could dedicate some time every day and focus on the content, without worrying what I sounded like. I now read and dream in Spanish.

The course is fine and the french lessons are in good taste but for a developing country like Brazil the prices are absurdly high and literally makes it impossible for me to actually buy the course.
Rocket Italian — New York , United States
I'm still near the beginning of Rocket Italian. Too basic for me but it's a good review and a chance to practice pronunciation. Maria is delightful as is the American, Alessandro. However, you might have been able to find an American with better pronunciation. Sometimes the way he says a word in Italian can be very jarring.
Rocket Spanish — TX , United States
I'm enjoying Rocket Languages. I'm only on level 1 but I can go back and work on words and phrases until I get it right. If I want to learn a different language i will definitely buy it from Rocket.

I really appreciate a lot put into this audio course to make it a near german environment while learning, especially with multiple reinforcing sections. I am hoping to achieve a lot with it. I really recommend it. Sahr gut arbeit
Rocket Russian — Birmingham , United Kingdom
Although I like the system employed, and it is certainly better than the so called market leader, there are some elements which could be improved.
The most frustrating thing for me is the translation facility which is sooooooo slow. How much better it would be if the translation could be downloaded somehow instead of relying on a live connection. The other obvious point is that it is not possible to use Rocket Language if there is no internet connection
