Rocket Spanish — Saint Louis, Missouri , United States
I appreciate the various interactions offered with this course such as the recording aspect and the testing, also the ease of reviewing whatever lesson is lacking. Although I have just barely begun the course, I am surprised at how much I am retaining. I am satisfied I made the right choice.
Rocket Spanish — Fairfax , United States
Rocket Spanish is well organized and fairly easy to use. I definitely like the experience and the process. HOWEVER - They are very wishy-washy with the meanings of phrases. In an effort to teach you different phrases to say the same thing, the designers forget that words have meaning. For example, early in the lessons you discuss someone's job. They tell you that the question, "What do you do?" can be asked ?Que haces?, which is correct.
Rocket Spanish — United States
I've used every language-learning product on the market, and Rocket is by far the biggest bang for my buck. The amount you can learn and internalize in a given amount of time is really quite astounding. You can spend years with some programs and never get up to the intermediate level. Rocket respects my time and delivers the language knowledge I need efficiently and effectively.
Rocket Arabic — Missisauga
Rocket Arabic Premium package is simple, clear and easy to understand. Role-play with male & female is very effective. Practice lessons, Audio practice lessons makes us to understand the concept clearly.
Overall a decent program. I listened to the audio for the most part. The games started out being fun, but ended up being a little simple and repetitive. There are two things I would appreciate:
1. Organized sets of rules for verb conjugations, prepositions, etc. I ended up with several sheets from my high school Spanish class, and even though this program was so much better overall, this is the one thing that would've helped. 2. Simple videos, readings, or audio that is understandable from the current lesson and lessons before. Even if it was something like "See Jack run" it would be helpful and informative for Spanish learning.
Rocket French — Tokyo , Japan
I bought the French language version. Very good. I don't know about the other courses but I have a couple of reasons for not giving it a 5 star rating: 1. The pronunciation of the female speaker in the early lessons is often bad. She has a habit of not pronouncing the nasal "n" in the middle of words or in liaison word combinations. Consequently I use Google translate to learn and practice the pronunciation of these words.
Rocket Spanish — United States
The online Spanish Course is exactly what I was looking for and the price was easily affordable. I will turn 73 this year and one time through the materials is never enough for me but I am able to repeat each exercise several times until I can complete it flawlessly. The record-it application is very smart and has been a tremendous help in improving my pronunciation, the intonation and phrasing of short sentences. I am part way through the first module but I am looking forward to the grammar and survival lessons. I believe I could be ready for Mandarin in a couple of years. This is my first attempt at learning a second language to my native American Mid-West English.
I am studying Italian in Siena for eight weeks, going to a school in the mornings and using Rocket Italian in the afternoons. I enjoy the variety of the subjects covered and especially like the quiz. I am surrounded by the language at present but will find this course invaluable when I get home to Wales.
Rocket Japanese — United States
I've definitely fallen in love with this program! It's so easy to follow and Kenny-san and Sayaka-san are awesome! I love how in depth they go into simple phrases and the hear it say it, quiz and write is, has been helping me remember the hiragana and the pronunciation of the words/phrases. I recommended my friend try this program and he's trying out the trial first but says he likes what he sees. A definite tip: practice, practice, practice.
Rocket Italian — Malta
I first bought this language program over a year a go, just for fun but though my own fault, I didn't really appreciate nor use it properly, hence no results.
Recently, my reasons for needing to speak Italian changed and as with all goals, when you have a big enough "why" you find a way instead of finding excuses and since restarting with a routine and discipline, I have to say, I now look forward to my daily sessions.
