Rocket Spanish — Magnolia, TX , United States
Using listen/record, I can practice, practice, practice until I get it right. The forum is a great tool to clarify something I don't understand. I've created a vocabulary with each new word or phrase. I can refer to often just to repeat them. The many tools in pdf are very helpful.
The thing I love most about Rocket French is the price. It is A LOT cheaper than the others. I also love the fact that Rocket French allows users to download the audio clips. This feature has been very helpful because I travel a lot and I wish to listen on the go.
Rocket Italian — Brisbane, Queensand , Australia
I've used Rocket before for another language. I'm very happy with it. Some things annoy me, for example, mistakes. Just in the first dialog, we are told that "Uno, due, tre" rhymes with "quattro , cinque, sei". But this almost undoes the lesson about pronunciation since 'tre' ends on a pure vowel 'e' and 'sei' ends on a diphthong 'ei'. They don't rhyme. Apart from the mistakes (and I'm hoping there aren't as many as the last time I used this program), I think it's one of the best available. And I do tend to be fussy.
Rocket French — MA , United States
I gave the price a 3 star because I had to go online to find a coupon code that provided me 60% off the original price. I gave the customer service a 3 star for neutral since I haven't needed to call a C.S.R. yet
Rocket French — Kitty Hawk , United States
I especially like the dialogue format, dismantling its parts, then putting all together. It is helping fix phrases in my mind that I used to have to piece together mechanically. I am hoping that this will lead to more fluid conversational skill. This is going beyond simple listening comprehension.
Rocket Korean — Bács-Kiskun , Hungary
I was looking for the best materials and the best sources for a long time but I didn't find what I was looking for. I have heard of Rocket Languages before but I wasn't sure if it was worth to buy it. After all I did order it and it was fantastic! All the materials that I was searching for one by one is all in here, on only one site! It absolutely did worth to buy it!
Rocket Chinese — Australia
The interactive audio is excellent however I struggle with the writing component. I am not sure what would be the best way to learn written Chinese over the internet, but I know I struggle with the way it has been presented to me here. However I purchased this product to learn the spoken language which it is great to learn from.
Rocket Arabic — New Orleans , United States
So far I've only taken two classes in Egyptian Arabic and it's awesome ! I am so happy to finally be learning a new language.
What I really like is that the interface is great, but the content is actually quite good too ! I love the fact that the person teaching you through the audios is super nice and very encouraging. The pace (beginner) is very good because it lets you understand each word and then put them together. Most of all : it explains the roots of certain words and describe how the language actually works... So far I'm just loving it.
Rocket Arabic — Milwaukee , United States
I took a regular class of Japanese for 12 weeks .It was very difficult. It was mostly grammar and Writing skills. By supplementing it with Rocket Japanese I was able to say practical sentences for many situations and develop some fluency. I was so happy with my 1st language, I added Rocket Arabic. It is very challenging but with Rocket I feel I am making slow steary progress pronouncing it correctly.
Rocket French — Tokyo , Japan
I bought the French language version. Very good. I don't know about the other courses but I have a couple of reasons for not giving it a 5 star rating: 1. The pronunciation of the female speaker in the early lessons is often bad. She has a habit of not pronouncing the nasal "n" in the middle of words or in liaison word combinations. Consequently I use Google translate to learn and practice the pronunciation of these words.
