This is an excellent language course, which is fairly priced. The lessons were fun, practical and educational. The ability to review, select favourite phrases and track progress are great features. The interaction between the 2 protagonists made the lessons personal... More

I started my rocket Italian trial yesterday and now am addicted to this class. The style that Maria and Alessandro use to teach is just amazing. It's like being in a class with two ineractive tutors who not only are taking you through the content but giving you easy conversations that you can relate to... More

I've been using rocket italian for a little over a month now and I am extremely satisfied with the product. The lessons are short enough so that you can fit one in everyday and are also a lot of fun.

what do get if you procrastinate and are indecisive about learning a new language on line? You get Rocket!!!!! I did not get as far in the lessons as I wanted but even though our three Italian guests we were taking around touring for three weeks spoke minimal English at most, and our Italian was minimal this course was set out so well that we could search the situation and communicate with one another far better than using an English-Italian dictionary...

I have tried a few other Italian courses over the last year and a half or so. This course, is the most interesting and immersive course I have found to date. Other courses are the same and seem to follow a certain way of teaching which I found did not help me, however I have noticed a more definite ability to understand and speak Italian over a shorter period which I did not have before.

I've only just begun the Italian course but so far I'm enjoying it. I really like how its structured and I like how its focused on how to handle real life situations. I also like in the modules that you have to work through not only writing the language but speaking it yourself (although it feels a bit odd at first to speak to your computer but you get use to it quickly!).
