I had been studying Italian on my own using another product, but it didn't provide me with explanations about word usage, culture, or real conversational lessons with self-test practice that Rocket Language Italian does... More

Granted, I am not a very disciplined student, but I have tried all of the language learning tools around I think... I like aspects of all of them, but not everything about any of them... I haven't been working with Rocket Italian for very long, but I am beginning to think that it may change all of that! I like the variety of presentations they take you through for each lesson - I originally took the stance that I didn't care about being able to write Italian, but as time goes on, I find that it not only helps you remember things, but comes in handy as you email more and more with Italian speakers...

Before our last trip to Italy we purchased Rosetta Stone, lost interest after about a month and didn't learn as much as we had hoped. We are going back this year, so I decided to try another program. Someone suggested Pimsleur, so I got a trial edition and quickly realized I would pretty much wind up illiterate but be able to speak some Italian... More

I hit a wall when learning with both Rosetta Stone and The Pimsleur Approach, and Rocket Italian was able to get me past it. The lessons and vocabulary are full of great information. My only complaint is that if I had not gotten it on sale, it would have been a bit to expensive... More

I like that so much of the exercises use audio. Too many language teachers end up teaching how to read a language, but put very little emphasis on speaking and comprehension. I also really like the dictation exercises, mostly because they give me practice in comprehension of spoken Spanish. More

The Italian course provides an excellent beginning for learning this pleasing language. Easy to follow, paced appropriately, and just enough to get you going but not frustrate you. IMHO, this approach is far superior to just flashing pictures and trying to get you to associate with a word. More

I enjoy these lessons very much. They are easy to use and learn from. The annunciation, for the most part, is very understandable and easy to repeat after. I enjoy the quizzes and wish I had a microphone attached to my computer so I could record my own phrases... More

Compared to the French and Spanish language that I have learned years back, then the Italian language grammar Is easy, to understand and follow. To have my fantastic two teachers to pronounce all the words and the grammar in a way that makes the essence of the words and grammar sinks in, so that I can remember the words and sentences, has given me a fantastic start, and I have therefore decided to by all three levels of Italian at ones.
