Rocket German — Switzerland
I've had Rocket German German since 2009, and think it's excellent.
Being able to sit on the train, listening to the German *and* English being spoken, often with interesting explanations, it's been really useful. Excellent value for money, and I have recommended it to other ex-pats who, like me, have moved to Zurich.
Rocket Italian — Lehigh Acres, Florida , United States
I have tried them all (Rosetta, Pimsleur, Duolingo) and I must admit that this program does the best job of teaching Italian. The reason is simple -- repetition. As a former teacher, I believe in repetition. Too many programs give you a lesson but do not reinforce it. Rocket does. Another plus is the response to my feedback. If I have a problem, I get a response within a day (two at most). Most programs don't bother to respond at all.
Rocket Russian — NY
This is a great site, very easy to use, and very helpful! I would recommend this sight to anyone . I am improving my Russian! Rocket Russian came free through my college linguistic's course so I could not be happier for the price!
One major flaw, which is very frustrating. That is the speech recognition software is of poor quality. I do not know why this was not pretested better. But when saying the same words the same way results in a much higher score there has to be a problem. I listen to my voice played back, and it sounds much more like the Russian speaker's voice than the guess printed by the software. Often with time and no changes necessary it will register 100%.
Rocket Chinese — riverside ca
really confusing sometimes. dont help you very much. i wouldnt recommend it to a friend. they need to put more iinfo. dont help you with vocab very much. dont really like it. it was also reaally har to submit reviews or ask them questions so of courese dont like service or prices.
Rocket Korean — dar es salaam
Rocket language is so cool , it is real helpful, i just cant say how greatful i am for your assistance, now i can pronounce alot of korean words without a problem hopefull i wil be with you for a very long time it so amazing and understandible
Really effective way to learn! I recently purchased this online and after I started learning, I couldn't stop! The German course is really nice and interactive. The interactive audio I was able to download so that when I am on the bus or waiting somewhere, I am able to learn some German. I enjoy the way German is taught using Rocket German, using audio courses unlike some other language teaching programs which uses software. I also really enjoy the games and flash cards that I am able to use to help learn.
Because I travel a lot, I like the mobile app that I can use on my tablet or smartphone.
Rocket Arabic — Dubai
The Rocket Languages is an amazing tool. I signed up for the Arabic course and although I slip behind in the course work (due only to my own laziness) the regular weekly e-mails do make a difference by reminding me of my desire to learn this language. Awesome product.
Good! I cannot write English well. That is why I must learn English. So, I cannot write review. Anyway, It was interesting to see the wave of my voice comparing with the native speaker's voice.
Rocket French — Denver
I really like the interactive dialog with the conversation and chance to practice and record my responses and am pleased about what I've learned thus far. However, I really wish they would have more of this in each module vs. the 'self study'/written portions in each module. I learn best when I hear conversation/dialog vs. the dictation/response of the lessons. For example in module 1 there are 5 lessons of conversation but 10 lessons of pure dictation/response. This doesn't suit my learning style well.
