Rocket French — Charlotte NC , United States
I used Pimsleur courses before. This is equally as good, but I am using exclusively in a car. The Pimsleur is better in a car as the lessons automatically come on to the next lesson and the program keeps track of where you are and Apple CarPlay controls work better than Rockets. The arocketvwoukd be better if it were seamless to a CarPlay experience.
Rocket German — SHEFFIELD , United Kingdom
I like the interaction in the 'Play it' section but there are problems;
1. The programme frequently states that it has not heard my reply - despite that when I press playback my reply is very clearly there - this is very frustrating and time consuming. 2. The programme makes no allowance for a beginner taking time making a reply which inevitably takes a lot longer than a fluent speaker would take - this again is very frustrating and prevents making best use of the programme.
Rocket Spanish — United States
Well, this is not awesome, actually. Just a couple of things.
1) First of all I am very pleased with the product overall. I don't have much to compare it to as it is the first time I have purchased a language program. But I did sign up for trial periods for several and I thought Rocket was the best overall. So I am pleased. 2) However, I acted too quickly to purchase during my trial period because only 2 days after making my purchase the product went on sale.
Rocket French — Caumont , France
I have only just started the course which is fine so far. My criticism would be that it does not reflect the way people talk in France. No one has ever said salut to me and the standard greeting is bonjour
Rocket Arabic — United States
Unfortunately, this software does not allow me to become fluent, as this only makes you an "intermediate" speaker with a premium level of 1 compared to others who have 3. The software for Arabic really needs some more information on writing the language, as it is by far the hardest lessons to learn. I have studied it for hours and still, I do not understand one bit the Arabic alphabet and how to write in Arabic. Other than that this is this software is above average that allows you to learn at your own pace. I also enjoy that I can use this software forever for only %150.
Rocket Hindi — Karachi , Pakistan
Guys, Rocket Language found a great platform to learn Hindi. I learnt like a baby, very easy and simple way they have to teach their students. Rocket language not only focusing on any one, it focuses reading & writing including speaking. The most important thing would like to share with you is listening, listening is a very grabbing tool for learning any language. To me, it is my ambition to learn Hindi specially writing skills as it is so complex but interesting.
I would appreciate and recommend Rocket Language to learn Hindi and/or any other language. Good Luck everyone. Iqbal Ahmed Karachi-Pakistan
Rocket Spanish — United States
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.
Rocket French — Manchester
Conversation and pronunciation of French is easy, but spelling is really difficult. It is too soon to have a judgement about Rocket French course as I just started it, but I feel apart its price which was about 30% more expensive than I've heard( $99)! Overall it seems a helpful course. Thanks.
Rocket Japanese — Japan
The course content is great, the design, layout and structure of the course is great. A lot of content, gets you to a good level of language ability if you study it correctly. The price is very high when you consider all of the free resources available though. I use the high price as a motivation to study, so that I'm not wasting my money, but it must dissuade so many others.
Rocket Sign Language
So far. The lessons are pretty easy and general. Not much reinforcement after each lesson so that the student retains. I guess I have to commit to practicing and reinforcing each lessson on my own. Also At times the videos are not as fluent (perhaps it is my computer).
