Read all about how Rocket Languages online language learning courses have helped our members on their quest to learn a language!
Rocket Korean — United States
As an English language instructor, I find the Rocket Korean course is pretty good but not perfect on its own. However, given the price tag, it's worth the shot. I would prefer that instead of text that the software be more interactive. Through the use of visuals such as pictures and videos it allows students to learn more intuitively and recall prior knowledge on the spot.
Rocket Languages is awesome for people with a lot of time on their hands, but the lessons are far too long for someone with a busy schedule. The Hear It Say It and Write It sections are absurdly long and time consuming. I wish it were at or below 50.

Rocket French — Manila , Philippines
Bonjour! Je m'appelle Laurice. Je viens des Philippines.. I am having trouble with some lessons yet the CostumerService chat doesn't have anyone to chat so no one would help me out. I am unsatisfied because someone would be online by the time I wouldn't need help and now I really need help, no ones there to chat. Anyway, it also has helped me a lot. To let you know, I am only 11 years old yet I am willing to know more about different languages and learn about it, fun fact: we are still not studying different kinds of languages but I know that this will be really helpful in the future.

Rocket Chinese — South Africa
I can't. I have just started some days ago. To say something awesome so soon after starting should be carefully evaluated. Studying Chinese isn't easy. Maybe I have something positive to say at the end of my first course. Thank you.
Rocket French — Wolfeboro, NH , United States
I was happy with Rocket French in the beginning but as I am now in lesson 6 I find it extremely frustrating. I cannot remember 2-3 phrases and then say them quickly enough. I am constantly being cut off in mid sentence, and no I haven't paused, and the voice recognition is not very good.

Rocket Sign Language — Pa
I am thoroughly enjoying yet another way to learn ASL. This has been a help and encouragement to me to get motivated to use sign in my daily life. It has also given me hope in using sign as a career.
Rocket French — Edmonton , Canada
Rocket French is a great course and I've learned way more French than I have for 3 years in school. I'm now getting better marks in French class because I finally know more than the rest of the class. One thing that I didn't really like was that the voice recognition software doesn't work for me as it doesn't recognize what I'm saying even though I'm copying Paul and Marie-Claire. I also find this program a little pricy even though it's worth it.
Rocket French — Carcassonne , France
Well, we do not like Paul's condescending and patronizing manner (it's not funny). We are both teachers, and we were hoping for more professionalism. My husband and I are going through the lessons together, and we feel the lesson content is practical and appropriate. We feel we are learning a lot to use in everyday situations. Bon Chance!
Rocket French — New Jersey , United States
I liked as much as I could cover in the free preview. It takes a lot of dedication to learn a language but rocket has good tools to help those who are interested. Having a monthly payment is a good option to have. If I want to continue to learn French, I would certainly think of coming back here as I liked the structure of the course very much.
Rocket Hindi — Canada
The Audio lessons are a great way to learn, the dialogues are very well done. And the voice recognition technology, while it needs some tweaks still, really helps practising to say difficult sounds and get the rhythm down.
Unfortunately, there are all kinds of mistakes in the Hindi lessons: inconsistent transcriptions, sentences attributed to a different translation, etc. This is something a good proofread could clear up, best by a native speaker, but even a non-native learner could help there.
