Read all about how Rocket Languages online language learning courses have helped our members on their quest to learn a language!
Rocket German — SHEFFIELD , United Kingdom
I like the interaction in the 'Play it' section but there are problems;
1. The programme frequently states that it has not heard my reply - despite that when I press playback my reply is very clearly there - this is very frustrating and time consuming. 2. The programme makes no allowance for a beginner taking time making a reply which inevitably takes a lot longer than a fluent speaker would take - this again is very frustrating and prevents making best use of the programme.
Rocket Korean — Connecticut , United States
As a completely new person to Korean, this course is not what I should have chosen to begin with. To be able to feel like you "completed" the lesson, you have to write things in a language they have not taught you yet! The lessons are too long and having to learn the "extras" to feel like you completed the material they were focusing on is also frustrating.
Rocket Korean — United States
I love that it uses phrases to teach the vocabulary and doesn't spend hours on learning individual letters. The ability to practice conversations and see how well you are pronouncing the foreign words is a great benefit.
Rocket German — Richmond , Australia
Excellent course. I download the interactive audio lessons and practise in the car as I am driving. The only downside with this is that I do actually see the text. Doing the work on the website is very helpful. It is really helping me improve my German.
Rocket German — United States
Rocket German managed to constantly keep me engaged where other programs failed. Usually I would lose interest about halfway (maybe even quarter way) through a program, but having the option of taking the audio lessons with me wherever I go gives me lots more options.
I can't recommend this program enough!
Rocket Russian — Palomar Mountain / California , United States
I absolutely LOVE Rocket Russian! I have tried so many other books, programs, cds, online tutorials, etc - and this is by far my favorite so far. I love that it uses a lot of repetition to build your foundation. I also love that it's not a monthly thing - but a lifetime subscription so I can take my time and not feel guilty about missing a day or two.
Great program! Love it! Thanks!!
Rocket Arabic — Houston/TX , United States
I'm so glad that I found this program (I saw it highly reviewed on a blog). I'm using it to learn Arabic, and I'm really impressed with all of the ways the program allows you to practice along the way. You spend a lot of time actually vocalizing the words rather than just reading them or hearing them. The program records your attempts at each word/sentence and rates your progress with each one (100%, 75%, 50%, 0%).
Rocket Korean — United States
I am a new user of Rocket Languages, and I am having a great time. For years I played around with the idea of learning the Korean language, but I had no idea how to take the first step. Rocket has given me the opportunity to study Korean at my own pace, without worrying about deadlines or expectations. I like the feel of being on a personal journey, since that was my expectation from the very beginning.
Rocket Spanish — Casablanca , Morocco
Rocket Languages has really been perfecting their approach to language acquisition with the Spanish Travelogue (and I have been through the other three levels). The course is wonderfully varied to keep me interested, and by the time I’ve finished a lesson, the phrases stick – and, most importantly, are useable. When I speak in Spanish to one of my Skype contacts about the lesson, I am speaking with a very competent level of fluency. What could be better than that?
Btw, the storyline describes an incredible trip through Latin America. I can’t wait to visit some of these places…
Rocket Korean — VIC , Australia
Rocket Languages is the most motivating online learning program I have ever used. I have been learning Korean for almost 2 years and there are times when I skip a few days of practice simply because I lose interest. Repetition does that to you. The points and badge system encourage you to work every day and compete with the other Rocket users. It gives you the strength to go each day and have even more fun learning the language.
I've already recommended it to a few Korean language students I know. Hopefully they surrender and check it out.
