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!).

I am currently using Rosetta Stone. My progress is good, but as I progress it is getting tougher to follow without instructions. I'm not sure what I am looking for. I will continue to review Rocket. More

This is a great site to help you learn a language. I am using it to learn Italian, having grown up around the language, i thought I already knew the basics, but this has helped me to learn how to speak properly and learn even more! It's very thorough in it's explanations of why certain words are used and how to learn the correct grammar and forms of the words... More

I have three problems with this course: 1. I cannot find any way to access the module tests in Rocket Italian. How do I access these? 2. I am in lesson 5.2 of the Interactive Audio Lessons and just discovered all the phrases you can practice in the "Hear it" "Say It" "Know It" section of the lesson by clicking on the "EASY" button...

I'd like to start with a statement, that this is a very subjective opinion. I have been active user of Rocket Italian for some 4 months. At the same time I was (also very actively) using another programs, like Duolinguo, Memrise, RosettaStone and various on-line Italian podcasts and learning programs "on the fly", both on PC and on a mobile devices (mainly smartphone) - News in Slow Italian, Learn Italian etc...

I've been struggling to find the time to learn Italian for ages, then with a trip planned, I needed to learn it faster. Rocket Italian has been great for just that; my conversational Italian has improved enormously and with the culture and explanation sections i now understand how the language works much better! More

This course is the first I've tried with the voice recognition feature and I greatly appreciate its ability to help me with speaking out loud, both in my pronunciation and level of confidence. I had studied Italian for a few years and had a good understanding of basic grammar and possessed a decent vocabulary, but never mastered the speaking without feeling a bit self-conscious... More

I am almost 75 years old and it's a long time since I did any study, but I'm finding this programme stimulating and user friendly.

I first bought this language program over a year a go, just for fun but though my own fault, I didn't really appreciate nor use it properly, hence no results. Recently, my reasons for needing to speak Italian changed and as with all goals, when you have a big enough "why" you find a way instead of finding excuses and since restarting with a routine and discipline, I have to say, I now look forward to my daily sessions...

Enjoying Rocket Italian. The flow of the lessons is good. Both the website and the iOS apps are quite good. There are some minor usability issues worth noting. 1. I can't find a way to speed up the recorded lessons which would be helpful for me as I have some background in the language so the early lessons could be moved through faster... More
