I'm enjoying this course so far. It turns out that I am rediscovering my schoolboy French very easily. New words take so much longer but I'll keep at it.
One thing to improve if possible. The special character screen keyboard does not have nearly enough French characters in it. Please uprate (or show me what I'm missing). Thanks.
Rocket French — DE , United States
I have used Rocket French for several years. The dialogue is relevant and the reinforcement lessons help to make connections that aid memorization. However, the voice recognition is spotty and does not always work, and it takes a long time for it to register. When I first started using Rocket French there was a feature that actually matched your voice to the native French speaker... very cool, but that is no longer available.

Initially I liked the program. But there are some frustrating elements that could be improved.
1. Too often new nouns are presented without the prefix. To really build vocabulary, we need to know whether a noun is masculine or feminine. 2. Too often expressions are presented only in the casual "tu" form. Yet most of the time we would likely need to use the formal "vous" form. But that is not provided in many of the lessons. 3. Some of the vocabulary in the lessons is not very practical.
Rocket French — Mauritius
I tried learning French using a CD set and books, but found the process slow and inflexible. With RF, I am able to vary the pace of learning and really focus on pronunciation. I also like the different forms of learning offered and the mix between conversational French and grammar. Well done on a great product!
Please can you let me know how I can use the keyboard in the "Write It" section? I am able to type some of the accents, but others are less obvious? Perhaps there are keystroke sequences that I need to learn? Kind Regards Murray Saunderson Moderators note: At the bottom left of the keyboard there is a check box that, when checked, shows the different accents.

Rocket German picks up where the (excellent) Michel Thomas German course finishes. Once you have learned the basics of German sentence structure using Michel Thomas, Rocket German gives you a wealth of vocabulary to use in your conversations. It's friendly to listen to, and the vocab "sticks" unless the typical "Learn German in your car" style CDs which just throw vocab at you, and hope that you'll remember a small percentage of it.
Rocket Arabic — United Kingdom
The Arabic course is unique in that it teaches colloquial Arabic which is more likely to be understood by the average person. I personally am using it to increase my vocabulary to supplement my MBA and classical Arabic usage. So overall the course is great and would be 5 star if the mobile app worked regularly. If they can fix that and keep it working regularly I will gladly update my review.
Rocket Sign Language
Sign Language is pretty good, but I wish there was more of a way to test where I am at. I am not sure how well I grasp the concepts because there is not really any interaction...It is a good way to learn by yourself though.
Rocket French — Melbourne
It's a good program and easy to follow so far. The free trial is a great way to introduce what the program is about and allows us to have a taste of what the structure is. I have been learning grammar from Duolingo and this program helps me with conversation and pronunciation. After many hours on Duolingo, I found this program reinforces what I already learnt and I hope it will help me speak French in the near future.
So far, so good. I've tried other online language learning tools and was VERY frustrated with how they taught things. But so far with Rocket French, things are going better. I like how I can mix things up a little...like listen to the vocab before I listen to the lesson. That helps me prepare for the lesson. Hopefully, Rocket French will help me get where I want to be.
