Rocket Japanese is amazing. Since it includes interactive audio lessons, I find it much easier compared to going to the bookstore and buy a book with all this stuff. Because of this audio lessons I find it easier to pronounce Japanese words and I can also assure that you will learn the correct pronunciation using this interactive audio lessons since one of the hosts is a native Japanese speaker.
Rocket Spanish — United States
Excellent lessons and drills to make sure you hear, pronounce, and write the language correctly. I like how you learn through phrases, not just verb conjugations. Good info about culture makes it more interesting. Although this costs way more than Duolingo (which is free), the price is a bargain for the easy-to-navigate and well-structured interface. The only negative is one night I had trouble with the website; it was showing primitive html (yes, I had the most recent Chrome browser). Customer service responded to my email for help five days later. By then, the issue had resolved. But my streak and ranking suffered.
Rocket Spanish — United Kingdom
I did some research before buying Rocket Spanish and the reviews were excellent, however I did not read anything that said it was all about South American and therefore some of the language is different. I feel it is designed for the younger people with little reference to the older person who only plan to go on vacation to mainland Spain.
Rocket German — United States
This could easily be a 5 star program, but there are enough poor choices by the designers that make it less valueable or frustrating to use that I am being generous to give this 3 stars. The bottom line is that it works, and it did better for me than when I used Rosetta Stone to learn another language.
I have been using this program for 10 months and have had 3 visits to Germany during this time related to work. This is where I think the program isn't good: 1.
Rocket Korean — buffalo , United States
I think more emphasize should be placed in Hangul! Its the foundation of the language and everything is so jumbled. Consonant, vowels should be separated and thought differently. I learned by watch children videos of sing alongs in Hangul. Like they make it so simple there. Its ok I guess... It needs more material to be concise. But good program
I have not yet progressed very far into the course, but for as far as I have gone, Rocket compares favorably with Pimsleur courses I have used. I like the available transcripts and computer material. Being able to actually see the words helps a great deal in getting the pronunciation down faster correctly. The recordings are a little too chatty and waste a bit of time better devoted to the language itself. I look forward to your Russian course.
Rocket Japanese — Toronto , Canada
Love everything so far, but I’ve noticed that you are changing the voice actors with the audio files. In my opinion, I’d prefer the original combination of the English Kenny and the ‘Osaka’ kansai-jin Sayaka...especially Sayaka, whose accent, in both nihongo-ga and eigo-ga is very helpful in terms of realistic Japanese phonetics. The new Sayaka is less ‘endearing’ and the new Kenny-san has perhaps a too refined Kanto-style accent.
Rocket Italian — Cali , Colombia
I believe that the Rocket Languages Italian course is very useful and helps to obtain a basic level of understanding rapidly. I think that it is more efficient compared with now obsolete CD and audiotape courses that I have taken. It could be improved by adding a visual component, such as pictures of objects and foods that are mentioned.
Rocket Spanish — Cebu City , Philippines
Its my first day to learn. I have bit background to this language. Now just familiarization and to continue learning the language more. Learning here through audio and written is satisfying. I would love to finish my free tutorial for a week. And hope to have the tutorial for more months. So exciting! Gracias Rocket Spanish Online for the tutorial.
Rocket Arabic — Potomac, MD , United States
This is an excellent program, in my opinion better than the comparable Pimsleur product, because it makes an attempt to explain the grammar. The dialogues are well spoken and practical. The main shortcoming is that there is no follow-up program. We need to have at least a Rocket Arabic 2 and preferably a 3 as well. Otherwise, there is a bit of a feeling of being abandoned at the start of the journey.
