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.

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!

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. What you get out of your learning experience is directly related to how much effort you're willing to put in. I rarely endorse anything unless it stands out from the crowd or impresses me. I like several things about this program. First the price- it's a good value and a one-time purchase for however much you want to dive in. It doesn't continue to gouge you month after month. You buy it- it's yours for life. And if you're a new learner or even intermediate level, you will return to this as a resource over and over. Because (very important) you will NOT absorb every single bit of information the first time around. To think you will have 100% recall after one-time through is extremely unrealistic.

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.

I started learning French more than a year ago. It is quite an interesting language, though somewhat more difficult than some other languages for me. I find Rocket French easy to go with, structured, and with plenty of opportunity to practice. I see that after listening and practicing different sentences or phrases from the audio lessons, they stay with me. I am able to use them without much effort while practicing French in other contexts. The hosts are nice too, especially Paul and Marie-Claire.
One observation: when I practice the speaking, a few times I need to repeat the given word/phrase and it shows "Sorry, I didn't catch that. Please try again". Sometimes, of course, it's because my pronunciation is not be correct, but many times I give the same pronunciation consecutively- the first time is not right, the second one it is.

This is an excellent program, in my opinion better than the comparable Pimsleur product, because it makes an attempt to explain the grammar. The dialogues are well spoken and practical. The main shortcoming is that there is no follow-up program. We need to have at least a Rocket Arabic 2 and preferably a 3 as well. Otherwise, there is a bit of a feeling of being abandoned at the start of the journey.

I've recently gained the opportunity to go to Germany for a job! All great news, with the small bump that i need to learn German within the next 3 months. I just started this program and i am loving it so far! It's easy to follow the lessons and focus on what the speakers are teaching and the site itself is simple and easy to navigate through to learn your intended language.

I couldn't get into it as I am at a more advanced level and I could find much in my trial edition. I never signed up to pay because of that. I didn't use customer service and can't really say about the price and I don't remember what it was. I'm guessing it would be okay if I had seen that the program was helpful in the trial. It would help to have a more helpful trial version.

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Mago - If you did sign up for a Level and found it was either too easy or too hard then we would gladly swap it free of charge to a more suitable one.

Absolute fantastic and very easy to learn. At present I am learning Italian. My partner is Italian, that is added advantage. I would certainly recommend Rocket Italian to my friends.
Please continue so.
