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 Italian — New Zealand
I am almost 75 years old and it's a long time since I did any study, but I'm finding this programme stimulating and user friendly. It is a good balance between the written and spoken word and combining it with little cultural snippets makes it more interesting and brings some reality into the learning. I would recommend it to anyone at any level.
Rocket Chinese — Alpharetta/ GA , United States
There is no functionality to allow you to quickly click on a word that you don't know to figure out what it means. Instead you have to wait through the painstakingly slow audio to hear someone tell you what it means. Very frustrating, especially if you're like me and learn better through seeing.
Rocket Languages uses a variety of approaches, including listening, speaking, reading and writing - and above all, REPETITION, which really helps me learn. I also like the combination of "learn by hearing" and specific grammar instruction. The only thing that would make it better is if it had videos.
Couldn't imagine it is that easy to learn new language, Rocket languages really knows how to make difficult languages to become easy to learn, I am sure if I spend more time I will know how to speak Spanish very good, thank you so much.
Rocket Japanese — Berkeley/CA
Once you get started the Rocket course is fun and the learning experience is great. From the very first lesson you learn that you can learn and it actually makes you feel like you can do it. The different ways to practice also "force" you to try. I also like that the lessons are short and we always review what we have learned in the previous lesson. I just need to remain committed and I think I will make good progress. It also helps to see the points add up the more you practice.
Rocket French — Coppell, TX
I've only been using Rocket French for an hour but already I've so much! I feel as if I could talk to a fluent French speaker and understand them and communicate right back. The program gives you so many options as to how to learn, and doing all of them (since they are included!) is the best way possible!
Rocket Italian — surrey
Before starting with Rocket, I had done another software-based course, which was a good foundation from the point of view of grammar, etc. I had got as far as I could with that and Rocket has proved to be the best way for me to continue and expand my knowledge of Italian. I especially like having the facility of recording my own voice to compare with the proper pronunciation; also having the app on my phone is very useful, especially when I am on the train. I have recommended it to other people, and would continue to do so.
Rocket Spanish — Leicester
Really enjoyed using rocket Spanish so far and feel I have learn much more quicker than anything else I have worked with.
The lessons are easier to follow and the information in the PDF I was sent really helped set me up for proactive learning.
Having decided to learn Portuguese to impress and become more involved with my Brazilian friends, I chose Rocket languages. It's great! It's Brazilian Portuguese, so exactly what I wanted, and it is so easy to use either on my laptop at home or tablet during lunch at work.
I've tried a little with my friends and they've commented on my good pronunciation - all thanks to Rocket Languages. The way the language is introduced is intuitive and it sticks.
Rocket Korean — Kiev , Ukraine
The web site is complicated and not very user friendly. I've spent 5 min trying to figure out how do I start the lessons and where to begin the studying. It's stupid to spend so much effort on a web site to have people leave confused. Too complicated to begin with.
