Read all about how Rocket Languages online language learning courses have helped our members on their quest to learn a language!
I used Rocket Languages as a valid help in learning languages. It is incredible how fast you can learn with only 30 minutes a day. I am learning Mandarin, and, believe me, the course is great. Do not pay too much attention to who tells you learning Chinese is impossible, and online courses do not work. You should see the face of my Chinese colleagues and customers when they hear me speaking Mandarin. Now, they are the ones who think: "That's impossible!"
I purchased the rocket french a few years back but did not progress too well. Earlier this year I tried Rocket languages again but this time with Rocket Portuguese and I have been amazed at my progress. I love how the course is put together and especially the language and culture section. There are a few glitches here and there but overall I am finding it to be a great investment -definitely value for money.

Rocket Languages are extremely easy to follow and understand. The best feature is the listen and record. This way you can record yourself speaking and compare it to the native speaker to make sure you are speaking correctly. My main concern is not speaking correctly and sounding or looking ignorant for not knowing.

I've tried a number of language programs - and I think Rocket Languages is the best. I like that they order the lessons in a logical way to allow you to speak relevant sentences quickly (versus some of the others where Level 1 - 2 is just nouns). I also love that there is four prong test - on your hearing, speaking, writing and comprehension. My only complaint is some small misspellings and errors with the written grading - but I know those will be fixed with time. Really great product!
I really enjoyed the free trial lesson and couldn't wait to buy the full course. the fee for lifetime access was real value for money and a good fit for my budget. What I like most about Nikita's lessons is there relativity to everyday life. I find learning Hindi with Nikita's"s lessons far easier than with any other language programme purchased. Main Bahut passand hai !!!
I am learning German and really appreciate the emphasis Rocket Languages puts on speaking in real situations. I've only been studying a few months so far at about 30-45 minutes every day and can already have short, simple conversations with my husband, a near-fluent German speaker.
The lessons are broken up so that I can have short practice sessions that fit into my busy schedule, which is great. I also love seeing the visual display of how far I've progressed through the program. It's very motivating to see the number of completed lessons increase over time. The games are pretty fun as well. I use them as a break from the "real" lessons.
I am having a lot of fun with Rocket German, and next, Rocket Spanish. This program is pretty great. I hope lots of people make use of it. Other programs I have tried did not compare.
I am a bit of an Italophile and visit Italy every year so thought it would be at least polite to try and learn the language. I had made several attempts to learn Italian but was making very little progress when I made the decision to try Rocket Italian. From the very start I felt that I was making progress and now have the confidence to give it a go when in the company of non English speaking Italians. I find the pace of the course just about right as I can regularly go back because everything stays available. Maybe that the most fun I have however is translating American into English. :o)
Keep up the good work Donald
Rocket German picks up where the (excellent) Michel Thomas German course finishes. Once you have learned the basics of German sentence structure using Michel Thomas, Rocket German gives you a wealth of vocabulary to use in your conversations. It's friendly to listen to, and the vocab "sticks" unless the typical "Learn German in your car" style CDs which just throw vocab at you, and hope that you'll remember a small percentage of it.
