Rocket Languages Member Reviews
Read all about how Rocket Languages online language learning courses have helped our members on their quest to learn a language!
Rocket French — ottawa , Canada
So far I'm enjoying the course. My only complaint is that I'm not able to test myself on what I'm learning. That is where I find Duolingo superior (and also free, I might add). I find that Rocket is definitely useful but that on its own, it wouldn't be enough. A combination of Rocket, Duolingo and Yabla are what I need and have given me the best results so far.
Moderators note: There are Rocket Reinforcement activities at the end of each lesson, Benchmark tests, and Module tests fr when you have completed a group of lessons, that all test you on the concepts and vocab used within the lessons :)
Rocket Chinese — Baltimore, Maryland
Rocket Review has been a great review for my oral midterm coming up in Chinese. The speaking aspect is especially helpful as that is currently my weakest area. I am also able to get an idea of where I stand, and the rating system helps me to figure out what else I need to work on.
Rocket German — Jakarta , Indonesia
The lessons are interesting and good. I've learned so much on how to pronounce words that seems difficult for me. You can download the audio and learn everywhere and anytime you want. I'm a student that needs to learn German because I want to study there and learn about medical science. But how am I gonna do that I don't know how to say my name, where I came from, and ask people how they are? So, I tried the 7 days trial and I'm so happy about it. Overall, their features are awesome, the native speakers are awesome, everything is awesome except for the price, hehe :D. Maybe Rocket Language can consider giving a special discount for students.
Rocket Sign Language — Trinidad and Tobago
I'm happy that this was my first exposure to American Sign Language (ASL). I now have an excellent foundation. I believe the lessons could cover a bit more subject matter to increase effectiveness but I believe the syllabus was well formulated.
Rocket Japanese — Croton on Hudson
I am really enjoying my Rocket Japanese experience so far. You all have really created a very well rounded system for learning a new language. I love the diversity of information and mediums of teaching.
There are many good tools to practice Chinese. I really like the rocket record where you can compare the pronunciation with Chinese speaking people. The only thing that I am missing is that there should be a prepared vocabulary for each chapter.
Rocket Italian — United Kingdom
I have tried every audio software and physical classes to learn languages; Rocket is the first course I have actually enjoyed and stuck to! The content is very in depth and engaging; I particularly like how they explain how the language works culturally. As I am living in Italy I found this very useful. It is the most interactive software and the various tool really make you feel like you are making progress while making it easy to memorise.
I like the lessons so far, but I have a couple nits to pick. 1) The recording volume is very low even when set to max. I have to get very close to my mic, and then I get big spikes. 2) When Mauricio pronounces phrases, he emphasizes one syllable the first time and a different syllable the next time. How am I supposed to know which way is right?
Rocket Spanish — TromsÃ¶
It is an interesting way to learn a languge. Very good to listen to people who speak. It is very realistic and natual. The second time you listen it is easy to remember the words again. I hope I will improve my spanish soon. The use of ipad will do it easy to practice every day, at home, on the bus and when I am walking.
