Rocket Russian — Malta

Very user friendly and makes it very easy to learn. It helps make the learning experience a joy to follow. The only glitch is that sometimes it doesn't recognise my pronunciation although I know that it's right but that is a very minor problem on my part... More

Rocket Hindi — Greece

The Hindi course is very good. I picked it after research and I am sufficiently satisfied. It is interesting enough and teaches well one who wants to learn. There are minor glitches such as with when the system repeatedly does not accurately recognize my response on some exercises but this is not of the essence... More

Summary: It is most important to start SPEAKING a language as soon as possible to get comfortable with it. I think that Rocket does a decent job getting you ready with some key phrases, pronunciation, and review, but it overloads the learner with too much new vocabulary per lesson... More

I enjoy the conversations that Rocket Italian is based on, but as a language instructor that uses strictly immersion techniques, I can't stand the amount of English that is in each lesson. There is SO much room for additional vocab that could be taught through the use of more exclusive Italian... More

Very good format in general. However a few recordings are distorted and difficult to hear and a small number have volume variations. The tools facility is very good. The flash cards sometimes remain blank until you press reveal, On the benchmark test the word to be spoken sometimes does not appear and therefore defeats the purpose of the test... More

I'm not great with languages and have smattering of both French and, to a greater degree, Spanish so wasn't sure then Italian would stick. I'll admit that I am listening to each lesson several times, but after only 10 days, I am finding that my first recall is in Italian and not another romance language... More

Unlike the Pilmsleur approach that I have also used, Rocket languages also has the reinforcement activities where you get additional listening, speaking and writing practice so you learn to spell correctly and pay attention to accent marks and special characters...
