Not sure if I'm only getting 'Lesson 1' as a trial, because if that's all there it is, it's quite limited. If there are more lessons to come, then I might consider purchasing it. However, with what I've seen so far, it leaves me 'wanting.'

The lessons are good, but I'm finding the speaking exercises very frustrating. The voice recognition does not work very well. The exercises require repeating over and over because the voice recognition is so poor. I'm not saying my pronunciation is great or anything, but it isn't as bad as the software shows. It slows down the lesson and makes it a drag.

I agree with several reviewers that the narrator, Sarah is possibly the most monotone person on the planet. I mean, she gives Ben Stein a run for his money. The product idea is great and when it's working properly, it's the best on the market. Unfortunately, I can't gove it five or even four stars as it's just too buggy (sometimes the audio doesn't play or double plays - sounds like there are two Sayakas or Kennys competing for my attention - or the mic doesn't work at times). Hopefully, those are fixed soon!

The 3 rated review was not from the content in the program. I feel the lessons are terrific. However, I would like to see a company recommended approach to beginning study in the program. I began by doing the lessons one at a time. Is there a better way or are there some other alternative approaches. Would appreciate your assistance.

Although Rocket Languages tells a good story, waiting 2 days for an answer to a question is ridiculous! For this reason alone I could not in good
conscience recommend it to someone learning their first foreign language Moderators note: We strive to answer support questions within 2-3 working days

So far RL is okay. The audios are entertaining, but a tad slow and I wished that they were a bit less English-heavy as it really breaks my French-thinking mindset. Any technical issues (and there are quite a few given the nature of the voice recognition software) that are reported fall onto deaf ears. Overall, it's an okay program, but needs heavy supplementation from grammar and vocab books (as all learners should have anyway).

Unfortunately I am one of the Rocket Languages failures. I spent my first few months doing what I believed the course asked me to do -- one lesson per day with extra study. After 4 months I had finished the first level of Spanish. I could say hello to folks, order a simple meal in a restaurant -- check in to a hotel, etc., but when I met with my Spanish speaking friends I could not understand what they were saying . So following the recommended learning path was not working for me.
