Rocket German — United States
This could easily be a 5 star program, but there are enough poor choices by the designers that make it less valueable or frustrating to use that I am being generous to give this 3 stars. The bottom line is that it works, and it did better for me than when I used Rosetta Stone to learn another language.
I have been using this program for 10 months and have had 3 visits to Germany during this time related to work. This is where I think the program isn't good: 1.

Rocket Languages is really good for someone who is wanting to begin learning a language fast and easy. It takes little time and you surely get a lot out of each lesson. And not only does it teach you the language, but it also teaches you different parts of the culture from where your language of choice is spoken. It's really amazing and I've already recommended to each of my friends.

The record with voice recognition grading really helps to get your pronunciation right, and the playback of your voice really helps you find out why you did get the grade you expected. These tools give a strong incentive to practice speaking, and have helped me to progress faster. The downside is that these tools are only practically useful on PC and not useful on Android because of speed and different limited web page. (I cannot speak for Apple versions).
I got Rocket Spanish four years ago after much hemming and hawing. I wanted to become a bilingual Spanish teacher for elementary grades (I did ;). I was preparing for 6 weeks of Spanish Language immersion in Costa Rica, and wanted to make the most of my time there. I didn't want to waste time learning the Basics in a foreign country.
I started with the Premium program, because I was leery of the cost and not sure of the quality.
Great value for price! I like the browser but was really impressed with the app on IOS. Since I am on the go quite often, it is nice to learn Mandarin and check things off right on my phone. The more exposure to the language the better, and now I don't have to just sit at a computer all day and learn. Despite a few little bugs it has been more than I expected and I would recommend Rocket over Rosetta Stone anytime.
Rocket Japanese — Chandler, Arizona
The interactive audio lessons are so fun, non-stressful, and easy to use. I love the feature that allows me to input translations just by highlighting the words in the conversation and then test myself by going through it on my own. I download the lessons I'm working on and listen to them in the car or at work.

Need some more practice and review material. Full Audio parts seem lengthy. Like your course. I would like to memorize by doing practice whatever I learn from the course so need translation practices both way
Rocket Chinese — Johannesburg , South Africa
If you are a language lover like me and wish to learn many languages but not the typical boring way and want to fast forward it, go for rocket languages which gives you an amazing experience of how to converse in any language...Rocket Languages is the best place to learn a language quickly and efficiently.
Rocket German — Australia
Great course - it gets you speaking from day one. The interactive approach is very useful.
Only complaint is the Language and culture section which is very dry as it's mostly lists and lists of vocab/sample sentences.
Rocket French — United States
Initially I liked the program. But there are some frustrating elements that could be improved.
1. Too often new nouns are presented without the prefix. To really build vocabulary, we need to know whether a noun is masculine or feminine. 2. Too often expressions are presented only in the casual "tu" form. Yet most of the time we would likely need to use the formal "vous" form. But that is not provided in many of the lessons. 3. Some of the vocabulary in the lessons is not very practical.
