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.
Rocket Italian — Stockholm , Sweden
The guy, Alex, in the Italian course comes across as a somewhat of a douche. He tries to be funny by pretending to flirt with the co host, Maria, but it just feels awkward. It might just be me, but I would prefer if they just sticked to the language material.
Rocket French — United States
I have 3 previous French courses (Premium, Premium Plus, and Platinum). I have been extremely satisfied with them; I listen to the audio lessons all of the time to increase my comprehension of spoken French. I purchased the Travelogue package and have been very disappointed that the audio is in English. Without being able to listen to the entire lesson in French, it completely takes away the audio experience and turns it into just a series of exercises to be completed. Is there any way to change the audio portion into French, instead of the woman reading the lesson in English?
Moderators note: A French narrative will be in the Rocket French Travelogue series by the end of the year!
Rocket Italian — CA
Sorry I am very disappointed. I have tried to download using my mac so that I can transfer and listen & learn while driving to work. I cannot download anything even following the mac instructions by using Control click. There is no downloading option!!!

Rocket Italian — Canada
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. It makes me frustrated to waste so much time on English banter. I am really struggling to make use of this course.
Rocket Spanish — United States
I was astonished by the sexism and gender stereotypes, there were even lessons about the nativity. I wanted to share these lessons with my partner, who is more advanced than me, but I was too embarrassed, and some lessons were unlistenable for me, due to these problems.
Also, the lessons themselves tend to just ask you to repeat what you have heard, and only occasionally challenge the listener to take what they've learned in the lesson an actually apply it to make new sentences. On a positive note I was pleased that the instructors would often add multiple ways of saying things.
Rocket Sign Language — United States
My review is of Rocket Languages Sign Language. Someone who is just beginning to learn sign language has no hope of following your lessons because you sign too fast. Much too fast!
It's okay to have a fast version, as long as a slow version is included. Someone who is just beginning to learn ASL can't follow when your hands move that fast. You need to fix this. Moderators note: Recently, we had to re-render all 3,000 videos to work on the apps, and in doing so it looks like the half-speed functionality has been overwritten. We will look at getting that back asap.
this program sucks, its not even functional and makes you restart whole lessons because it cant even save your answers. DO NOT BUY IT!!!!! Use something else, its loading times are horrible. The content is good but you cant even load the page and save your answers so theirs no use in the content!!!!! :(
Rocket Spanish — Asheboro
I love rocket language because i learn a whole lot i am 11 years old and i went to this web site because I've been wanting to learn Spanish and know i now Spanish, so gracious/ thank you for helping me learn Spanish so adios/goodbye p.s i was commended to go to this web site by this girl named Sharon foster from YouTube.
Rocket Chinese — Springville, UT , United States
Seeing all the rave reviews makes me wonder if there's something wrong with me. I am not a linguistic novice; I am a native speaker of English but a fluent speaker of Korean, I majored in linguistics in graduate school, and I've studied several languages both in university classes and on my own. But I'm having a hard time making any progress in Rocket Chinese. Eleven- or twelve-morpheme sentences are just too long for a beginner in the language.
