The voice recognition works pretty well. It struggles with very short sounds, but overall very good. I've used other programs that ask you to speak the answers, but the pronunciation analysis makes me try much harder to say each response out loud.
The romaji is good for beginners, but already know hiragana and katakana, so the romaji is very distracting. I wish there was an option to turn off romaji so I can practice reading. --Moderators note: The romanized version of the phrases can be toggled on/off under your profile.--

I like that so much of the exercises use audio. Too many language teachers end up teaching how to read a language, but put very little emphasis on speaking and comprehension. I also really like the dictation exercises, mostly because they give me practice in comprehension of spoken Spanish.

I am hoping that within a year of this program I will be able to Speak Japanese to my co workers. Its much better than Rosetta Stone. I just wish this program explained at very beginning why certain words are used in the sentence like ga, wa, no, imasu, desu and masu so it can be applied instead of just memorized.
Moderators note: We agree! There is a new lesson on this topic being created. It will be added to the course soon!

The app on iPhone doesn’t work property. After I email the customer service for a few days, the problem still has not been solved. The app is not as good as the desktop version., which is a shame. The responses from customer service seem slow. The audio lessons are interesting but the culture and language don’t make me feel interested about learning. There are definitely things that require improvement.

At the begining i was impressed by the course, especially in the "intercative audio lessons" but in my opinion the grammar section "language and cultural lesson" it is a mess, sometimes very complicated without a clear path. It is weird and does not make really sense, there are not enough explanation concerning the rules and new words.
About the writing section i can say it is ok. It feel like the chinese course is a

hi. i didn't feel like 7 days was a long enough trial. with working all day and a household to run at night that doesn't leave much time to get even a little grip on the language. i find the price a little too high for me. i'm a single mom of 4. not easy

When I was using Rosetta Stone, whenever I opened it (and I could always find access) it opened to wherever I had left off. That would all be very helpful for Rocket language to offer and it doesn't, or I don't know how to find it. Perhaps I could get some help.
Moderators note: Rocket does do that. You just have to earn some points on a lesson for it to be remembered!

It is difficult to begin--there is no easy way to start learning right off the bat, one has to search for the book/lessons. Learning would be easier if you could click a button to take you to a lesson (the most recent), with links to all of the information you need to continue on. This way you can just click start and get back to learning.

It is such a good program but the problem the language it self it is not main arabic, it is an accent, it is only used in Egypt. if it was a classic arabic it will be more way better. because if people understand the classic arabic by the time it will be easy for them to understand any other accent. but with Egyptian accent they only can use it in Egypt and they will had a weak chance to understand any other arabian.
