Rocket Japanese — United States
I had actually done the Rocket Spanish and I was a bit disappointed with Rocket Japanese. I do not feel that there are enough lessons to get an understanding of the material. I also do not feel that verbs were covered enough.
Rocket Italian — Florida , United States minor outlying islands
Love it, love it, love it. I have done Rossetta Stone and Duolingo. Of course, I did learn a lot with them but I like this method better. You not only learn the language but about the culture. I just hope I have a discount when I want to learn other languages. I know a little of French and want to improve. Doing Italian right now. After French I want to do Portughese.
Rocket Spanish — CO , United States
Summary: It is most important to start SPEAKING a language as soon as possible to get comfortable with it. I think that Rocket does a decent job getting you ready with some key phrases, pronunciation, and review, but it overloads the learner with too much new vocabulary per lesson.
Format: I really like the audio format in a nice progressive pace and it's less 'cluttered' than the popular pod101 program.
Rocket Spanish — La Quinta, CA , United States
I signed up over 5 years ago and every time I have had any issues or just a simple question they have always been there. The lessons are spot on and learning Spanish, is Rocket fast!
Keep up the great customer service, Johnny B
Rocket Italian — Missouri , United States
Unlike Rosetta stone this teaches you things you can actually use and provides actual instruction. There is a good mixture of interactive audio lessons, activities, flash cards, review and more. It's nice to hear a native speaker and a non native (American) one too. I enjoy that this include some cultural pointers too. I can avoid ordering the wrong type of coffee for the wrong time of day! The mobile app seems a bit unresponsive. This has led me to doing most things on my Mac and listening to the audio portion on my iPhone on the way to work. I took a couple of years of Italian in college and this is a good way to learn all I forgot. It's helpful to have an explanation of some of the literal phases. Overall, great product for the money.
Rocket French — Egypt
I have had a technical problem with Rocket French for over a month now. I cannot play the audio files of ALL interactive lessons, and that is on several different devices. The support team has not been able to fix it for me, and their response rate is too slow. I'm regretting having bought the product, because it is useless for me if I'm unable to use it. And it means that i threw my money on the drain. I now asked them to reimburse me for my money if they cannot fix their technical issues, and they haven't replied to me yet. As usual their response takes at least THREE days. I'm getting extremely mad, to be quite honest!
Rocket French — Phoenix, Arizona , United States
I've been learning French on my own for 5 years, and although my reading/writing skills are an upper intermediate level, my comprehension/oral skills are not sufficient for getting by in France. Rocket French is changing that after only 1 module! By far, the best comprehension skills program I've seen.
The price isn't cheap, but you get what you pay for, and with Rocket French, you get a lot! And I like the humor - it's good to break out into a laugh during the lesson. Definitely recommend!
Rocket French — Kingston upon Thames , United Kingdom
Shame on you Rocket Languages!
There has been some improvement but your system still keeps freezing, not transmitting your words and not recording mine. The little bars that wiggle and show the microphone is live freeze, i.e. stop wiggling, on almost every attempt. My playback does once again contain many more words than you are recording. Why? I have been trying to work through 11.1 at the Doctor’s and 11.2 Making a Complaint.
Rocket Spanish — United States
I am an adult learner and have a real-life need to have a good working use of Spanish for travel and work in Central and South America. I have been studying Spanish for about 6 years so I have a fairly good grasp of the language. I have used all the widely-known, self-directed courses, multiple online resources, have a small library of Spanish books, even hired a tutor at the cost of $100/hour from Colombia. Bottom line in all of this, is that learning a new language is work- a lot of work.
Rocket Spanish — Gainesville FL , United States
Rocket Spanish has been so helpful. The dialogues are good for listening in the car, and the exercises make sure you are thinking, understanding, and pronouncing correctly. This is better than any other language tool I've used outside of the classroom.
