Rocket Languages is simply the only way to go for travel to a foreign language speaking country! I bought both the French and the German programs. The ability to download the MP3 files onto an ipod and listen 24/7 with headphones over and over is very helpful to get the pronunciation right... More

I have tried learning languages years ago with books and tapes and more recently downloading files from Internet (Listening only, No text!) with mixed results. With Rocket Languages I sense that I am making better progress with more retention and importantly I am able to start thinking in German and not need to translate which is vital in achieving fluency...

Love it. It's fun and so convenient. I carry my IPad with me everywhere so I have my Rocket German to study anytime I have extra time. I am also studying German grammar and vocabulary books, but Rocket German is by far the most fun and most effective. More

I had spent a year learning German from a book which suited me as a visual learner. BUT, the sounds and ability to speak everything I was learning seemed impossible! Rocket German has been amazing and I am able to move the words from my mind and into my mouth and so speak everything I have learnt in the course so far... More

I have used many other methods, including Rosetta Stone, Pimsleur and a two week language course in Italy and found the Rocket programs superior in that the grammar is part of the method, which is essential in becoming fluent in a language...

Rocket German is a great German learning course. The lessons cover the most common life situations, although sometimes more examples of different variations of the same situation would be nice. I like that there are two indicators how well you know a certain lesson ("hear it", "learn it"), which is useful for tracking to your progress. More

The audio lessons are interesting and keep your attention unlike other audio programs. The exercises and transcripts are very helpful for reinforcing the German I am learning from the audio clips. I like how you can mark vocabulary words that you still need work on and how you can review them later from the website... More

Like anything else, with practice, I see progress. Plus, I enjoy the conversational parts very much - they are not dry and boring like other programs I have used! Each lesson is categorized in a logical way, and as progress is made, previous terms are brought up again, which helps reinforce the vocabulary and usage. More
