I am enjoying the audio lessons and I particularly like the additional explanations on grammar points and the way they ask you to apply the learning in different ways. It would be great if this learning approach was also applied to the revision exercises, which do a good job of consolidating the phrases in the audio lesson (even if it is a little too repetitive) but don't stretch you to apply the underlying grammar principles to new situations. It would also be good if the revision sometimes threw in words and phrases from earlier lessons as a way of consolidating what you have learned before. I also find the voice recognition very difficult to use. It very often doesn't pick up on what I'm saying.

The dialogues are really helpful for understanding real Spanish, not just the usual sample sentences contained in most Spanish textbooks. The audio is also key to perfecting one's pronunciation and increasing comprehension.

Rocket Languages is a great way to learn languages because it feels as if I am talking to a person face to face instead of listening to some man named dave and a lady called lin (I think) who are speaking over a microphone which is good thing so xiexie ;) .

The price can't be beat! I especially enjoy that I control what and when I want to focus on for my study sessions. The interactive audio sessions actually helps me to think in the target language. I'm having problems with the speech recognition and will likely need to contact tech support; however, the first few hours into the course and I'm enjoying what I received for the price.

If you are a language lover like me and wish to learn many languages but not the typical boring way and want to fast forward it, go for rocket languages which gives you an amazing experience of how to converse in any language...Rocket Languages is the best place to learn a language quickly and efficiently.

The lessons are great and there helpful to learn the language. I really enjoy learning the language and I hope that people would go to this website to try for themselves. Dedicate their time to their lessons and studies to learn Korean or even different other languages.

The record with voice recognition grading really helps to get your pronunciation right, and the playback of your voice really helps you find out why you did get the grade you expected. These tools give a strong incentive to practice speaking, and have helped me to progress faster. The downside is that these tools are only practically useful on PC and not useful on Android because of speed and different limited web page. (I cannot speak for Apple versions).

I would give the course 5 stars if all features were available on all platforms.

On android viewing the website, speech recognition is so much slower to respond, and much less accurate, so the time delays become frustrating - it is very dependent on internet and wireless speed. The key thing android misses is it that it has no ability to play back what you said (so that you can hear and correct your own mistakes). From the forum comments this appears to have been missing for 2 years or more, and I think Rocket Languages should make playback of your own voice a priority fix for android users.

Well designed course that combines visual, audio, written, quizzes, flash cards and reminders along with a little humour. It's a very well designed program.

The online computer version has an advantage. It records your spoken phrases so you can play them back to compare pronunciation with the native speaker. This is great! The iPhone version lacks that feature. It grades your spoken response but you can't hear your spoken response.

Overall, I'm very impressed with the educational design and the usefulness of Rocket Chinese. Very well done! I used both the computer and my iPhone for practice. I like both versions. It's the best language learning course I've seen, by far.

My preference would have been to experience other French tutorial products first for comparative purposes, however, this does not diminish my initial assesment of RocketFrench which has been surprisingly impressive for the three modules completed so far. The product is very well structured with an intuitive interface and excellent audio tracks. The light humorous approach makes the work of learning French easy, fun and most of all memorable. I believe that my re-assesment of RocketFrench will probably be deserving of five stars as I progress through the remaining modules.

The twenty minute lessons are just the right length. The narrators are personable and the dialogue is usually pretty interesting. The fact that I can download the lessons and listen to them on my iPod while I walk to work in the morning is especially helpful.
