I love the way the courses are organized... stimulating interactive conversations (with explanations!) that can be downloaded as MP3s, along with voice recognition/replay, voice-to-text translation (and correction!), role playing on my laptop and even more detailed information for further reading. They did an awesome job with Rocket French!
Rocket French — Toronto
I never did any French at school, which was a long time ago and in the UK. Since coming to Canada only 18 months ago I decided I really should learn the other tongue of our dual language confederation. I have attended a course at one of our local adult education facilities but rapidly became out of my depth and therefore discouraged and have now left that course. So I stepped up to the plate and have bought the Platinum Course. I can now go over each lesson at my own pace several times. I love that I can practice my accent for each word and love having to try several times with some words to hit that magic 100%. I am new to this but am loving it so far and now have a real incentive to keep on going.
Rocket Languages is a wonderful interactive online tool to study and practice a new language. It offer a large variety of exercises to improve in writing, listening and speaking. The exercises are with increasing difficulty, so that anybody. There is space also for the grammar of the language. However, the main focus is on minimizing the time needed to start and being able to use a language. It's definitely a modern and funny approach to language-learning!
Rocket Spanish — Alaska
I first bought Rocket Spanish many years ago after a trip to Costa Rica and Guatemala. I had taken Spanish at my local college, but after the trip it was quite obvious that I needed lots of practice, and Rocket Spanish provided the means in a fun and entertaining way! Understanding the other person is the most difficult part for me, and the way RS is presented, with the conversations and explanations, is by far the best I have seen in any program.
Rocket Spanish — Florida
Outstanding course. You will be learning to communicate in your first lesson. The course has been huge to me in being able to converse with a son-in-law from Argentina, niece from Puerto Rico, partner from Cuba, and friends from Mexico and Hondurus. Can't beat the price and the quality of the course is unsurpassed.
Rocket Arabic — Arizona
I love the voice recognition, which allows my pronunciation to progress quickly! The videos demonstrating how to write out the characters have also been immensely helpful, I would definitely recommend this.
This software is absolutely amazing and it has blown me away. I have always wanted to learn a third language and being into a lot of Italian culture and music and after doing different types of reading and solo studying i thought I would give this a try and it is truly buonissima!
Rocket Japanese — Hemel Hepstead
To all my fellow "I have been burned in the past " people,
I have found Rocket to be a great buy so far. The navigation and use of the Rocket package is very easy and user friendly, and I enjoy the interactivity and goal orientated nature of the courses. More importantly, I have successfully understood, learned and retained lessons from the get go! Can't wait for their Cantonese course! (wink wink, nudge nudge)
Rocket Russian — CuiabÃ¡ - Mato Grosso , Brazil
I would like to say that Rocket Languages is awesome because makes me feel comfortable about learning a difficult language such as Russian. I feel like I have had a immersion in the Russian words and culture, seeming to me as if I were living there...
I became gratefully surprised about the Rocket. They overcame my expectations in the best way!!
Rocket French — Brisbane
Rocket French is a valuable learning tool. The diction in both languages is excellent and the course is overflowing with so much input.
What I personally like about it is - you can come back to it at any time without losing your course fee etc. You can pick up where you left off a few weeks ago, maybe after sickness, or, as in my case, after major surgery. Learning a language via Rocket is so convenient. It fits into your own particular lifestyle like a glove on your hand. You chose when and where to access it, and your own private teacher is always there on call. Thanks, Steve Giles. (Brisbane / Singapore)
