Rocket German — windhoek , Namibia
I love learning new languages! I can speak conversational German and, to a lesser extent, Croatian. Recently I was inspired to learn Spanish by a friend and so I spent hours and hours poring over reviews of the various online language learning options.
Rocket Italian — New York , United States
I wanted to learn how to speak Italian because I was tired of listening to my wife and her family and not knowing exactly what they were saying. Of course they would always tell me what they had said but I always wanted to experience it first hand. I first ordered rosetta stone Italian but I wasn't pleased with their teaching method and returned immediately. I went on You tube to find reviews on a good italian program and came across a review for rocket Italian.
Rocket Japanese — Reading , United Kingdom
I have been studying Japanese on and off for a couple of years, this is because i get too busy and reading a book takes a lot of effort and becomes boring when you do not know much of what you are reading and there is no one to tell you if you are doing the right thing or if you are even pronounce it correctly. This course is amazing in the way that it is very interactive and I feel like everyday I go on it I am learning something new and useful that I can add to my vocab.
Rocket Japanese — Sarajevo , Bosnia and Herzegovina
Hello, I am an English teacher but can speak 4 other foreign languages and started learning Japanese a few years ago. I studied it with Teach yourself Japanese, Japanese for Busy People and Take off in Japanese. Then I tried Rocket Japanese and I can say Rocket Japanese is the best programme I have ever seen. Not only is it very creative but very practical and applicable, too.
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%.
