I have tried them all (Rosetta, Pimsleur, Duolingo) and I must admit that this program does the best job of teaching Italian. The reason is simple -- repetition. As a former teacher, I believe in repetition... More

It is a horribly frustrating program. I have yet been able to download it. Only two lessons in two modules have been downloaded. To be fair one of the chat support people told me to call and she would guide me through the download, but I am tired of playing with the program and haven't called... More

For the most part, I do like the course. It is an easy and enjoyable way to learn. I am taking the Italian course. My only MINOR COMPLAINT SO FAR is the specificity of some of the lessons. In Module 3 of the Premium Basic Course, the first 2 lessons are waaaay too narrowly focused... More

This is great. I have finished the first chapter and just started the second. The course moves at a good pace and I like how interactive it is and how it can record you speaking. The grammar and culture sections are brilliant and really help to instill the language learnt in the interactive lessons... More

Like many people I've tried to learn another language, in my case Dutch but didn't keep it up, in part due to the style of teaching used by my chosen 'popular' learning course. What I like about Rocket is that everything is based around conversations which at whatever level you reach is crucial... More

I am two months into the Rocket Italian course and I am so far very pleased with it. The website and apps are well designed, interesting to use and encourage you to stick with the course. The lessons are at the right length for me - I can get one done a day and it's the right amount of new vocabulary and grammar each lesson for me to then learn... More

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!).

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!

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...

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 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...
