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!
This is a well designed system. You get to listen, read, write and speak. You are given the chance once and again to improve your pronunciation. The course layout is fresh and makes learning fun and pain free. It's also a motivating system as you get to see your progress, and you get rewarded your points that allow to see where you started from, where you are, and where you could be. If you want to learn German, this system does definitely help you. The question is not whether this system is good or not (it is undoubtedly good). The real question here is how serious you are about learning German. If you are ready to put the time and the effort to it, then this system is definitely going to help you... quite a lot.
Rocket Japanese — Chandler, Arizona
The interactive audio lessons are so fun, non-stressful, and easy to use. I love the feature that allows me to input translations just by highlighting the words in the conversation and then test myself by going through it on my own. I download the lessons I'm working on and listen to them in the car or at work.
Rocket Chinese — Wujiang/Jiangsu
I am just restarting to learn Mandarin using Rocket Chinese because I had been too busy teaching and building new courses at my current school in China.
Positive: 1. Listening, Reading (in pinyin - latin script and Simplified - chinese script), Writing (initially in pinyin) and speaking is available from the very first lesson. 2. Step by step in a logical fashion based on what would seem to be logical needs of a person new to learning the language. 3.
Rocket Japanese — Tacoma, WA
This is a great program that uses a mix of audio, text, and quizzes to help you learn a language. I'm trying to learn Japanese and I was very relieved when I saw the program has all the writing methods of Japan (Kanji, Katakana, Hiragana, and Romaji). I am also glad that they incorporated a way for me to record myself speaking the language. This way I can compare myself to that of the native speaker.
Rocket Hindi — Ramla
What I love about the course is that even in the very first lessons I started to say simple things, as you learn useful words that you can use in any situation. That really boosted my confidence and it helped me to stay motivated to continue the course.
Also it is interesting. You can do the dialogues playing the role of one of the speakers. That is very useful as you can start to feel at home with the language. It is like really having this conversation with someone.

Need some more practice and review material. Full Audio parts seem lengthy. Like your course. I would like to memorize by doing practice whatever I learn from the course so need translation practices both way
A fun and easy way to learn. Several years ago I started with Rocket German before a trip to Germany. Although I didn't progress very far with the lessons, what I did learn really helped with important things like ordering food, booking a room, getting directions, etc. Now I'm planning a trip to Austria and am planning to go through all 3 levels of lessons before my trip in September 2013. Its a really fun way to learn.
Rocket Spanish — Kansas City, Kansas , United States
We tried Pimsleur and Duolingo each for a month before finding Rocket Spanish. Two weeks into RS and we’re pleased and feel like we’re learning USEFUL conversational Espanol. We wsh RS allowed us our own learning profile on one account like Pimsleur does. Pimsleur Level 1 to us as Beginners was VERY boring and far less practical than Rocket. And, Duolingo is a nice phone app for vocabulary but we learned very little practical conversation Spanish. So for our money and the time we will invest Rocket was a very good find.

I love this program! I'm never bored. Instead, I'm completely engaged. The teachers offer tips that are incredibly helpful in learning a new language. I'll be telling everyone about this learning program. Thank you!
Rocket Italian — United States
I like the way review is spiraled into several lessons, so the words really stick. I also like the multimodal practice with each lesson. I expected to have some difficulty picking up Italian after many years of not practicing any language except English, but I'm learning more quickly and remembering more thorougly than I thought I would. Tutto bravo!
