Rocket Spanish was everything I was looking for. A one stop shop to learn not just memorize vocabulary but to learn grammar and learning to form my own sentences. The voice recording feature is great too as it allows me to practice my accent.

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. There were so many options out there but nothing really felt like it was "the one" until I came across Rocket Spanish! Now, some people are happy with simply learning how to speak a language by only learning phrases but I'm one of those who really need to understand the grammar behind the phrases and sentences. So, when I came across Rocket Spanish, I was extremely excited to see that, not only will I get to learn to speak the language like a native speaker and in a way that suits my learning style (Visual) but also that the course is packed with quality lessons in grammar. What really impresses me about Rocket Spanish is the emphasis on repeating words or phrases out loud (not just in my head). This is such an important factor in accelerating one's fluency in a non-native language. After all, if you want to speak a new language, then you really do need to speak it out loud! I only wish that I had come across Rocket when I learned German and Croatian! It would most certainly have saved me countless hours and dollars wasted on ineffective methods.

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. The person who gave the review took into account a few courses but praised the rocket program over all of the ones mentioned. I then decided to order on the spot. I have not had the program for a week and have impressed my wife on how well I can read the conversation transcripts. I decided to read (in Italiano) to my father-in-law, who grew up in Italy, and he was extremely impressed with my pronounciation. THIS IS ONLY AFTER ONE WEEK!!! I try to practice every day and have my wife speak to me in italian to keep me sharp. I want to thank Rocket Languages for this opportunity to learn and reach my goal that I have set for myself. Thanks, I will keep you posted on my journey through the course.

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. I love how the score system works and the fact that there is a leader board that lets you know how you have done that day compared to everyone else. I am a highly competitive person and I feel like this allows you to push yourself further to try and get number one in that leader board. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning a language, it is worth it as long as you will put in the time to study and stay consistent. Hope you guys enjoy it.

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. Modern tools and features make it even more interesting, in particular for youngsters! Sayaka as our guide is excellent as well as Mauricio and Amy for Spanish. What I like most about Rocket Languages is that there is always a dash, a touch of culture and customs as well as nuances in different countries (for Spanish). I have already recommended Rocket Languages to several friends of mine. Last but not least, I wish all the teams of Rocket Languages success in the future work-I am sure you will grant us with some new, interesting improvements!

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.

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. Another plus is the detailed lesson given at the beginning of the section. If you really want to learn the "ins" and "outs" of the language, the explanations are there for you. All you have to do is read and absorb. Some programs (I won't mention names) never bother to explain anything; they just expect you to learn on your own. If you wonder why I have only given 4 stars for would I buy again, it is because I am not that young and don't think I'll be trying another language. If I do, it will be Rocket. Oh, one more plus -- the one-time price. Yea!
