Wonderful woman Italian speaker. Most beautiful Roman Italian. But totally exasperating waste of time as the American goes on and on and on with useless chit chat. I don't have that time to waste and have given up on this program More

The Rocket Italian Premium level is great for learning basic travel phrases. The voice recognition software works very well and if you use all the tools they provide for you regularly you'll definitely feel comfortable pulling out Italian phrases when you need them... More

I found the first level excellent. Both presenters were extremely clear. I'm on to the intermediate course now though and finding it much tougher. It's the same female presenter and she's excellent, but the male presenter in this course is really difficult to understand, pronouncing words considerably differently from the original... More

This software is absolutely amazing and it has blown me away. I have always wanted to learn a third language and being into a lot of Italian culture and music and after doing different types of reading and solo studying i thought I would give this a try and it is truly buonissima! More

I love Rocket Languages because it takes you step by step in learning any language even though you don't speak it at all. The teachers explain everything so clearly that I didn't need any support in the forums (which is a very helpful resource)... More

I am greatly enjoying the Rocket Italian course (whilst continuing with Rocket French). Really glad I bought these courses - they are far better (and much better value for money) than others I have tried as they help you not just to speak and understand but also give valuable insights into how the language 'works'...

Sometimes you get more than you pay for and that is the case with Rocket Languages. They don't promise more than they deliver and they deliver what they claim. All for a good price!

I'm really enjoying this course. I've previously tried to use both Duolingo and Babel. Duolingo is good for learning vocabulary, but not much else. And Babel was just too boring! I love this format, how there's the base lesson that helps you learn from a conversational point of view, and then the complimentary language and culture lessons to provide more color and nuances...

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...
