This is an amazing program! I had tried Pimsleur and Fluenz when learning Spanish. Rocket simply blows those away. And with the iPhone app and mp3 recordings you can practice anywhere. Enjoy learning your new language! More

Excellent, they explain every single word and phrase and let you undestand it by practicing it over and over through the review part, they also enphasize on pronunciation though this varies from my native language, it help me alot !!!! More

Excellent way to learn such a difficult language, you just need some discipline and patience and little by little you start to understand and make sense of each word… I listen the course on my way to work or at the gym everyday and i dedicate a few hours on the week end for the reviews… More

It's immersive and very educational. A good price for good quality lessons. The audio is clear and interactive, which is helpful in learning pronunciation. Lessons are short enough to provide a sense of successful memorization, but long enough to help solidify the knowledge... More

Quick learning, and good implementation of knowledge by ongoing repetitions to train ear and memory. This, paired with the fact that the lessons can be taken anywhere anytime makes it perfect for businessmen usually not having the time to take personalized classes, but still in need to learn a language More

Rocket Chinese is truly exceptional in that it engages all your learning faculties. Consequently, as you systematically work through the lessons (the 3 steps: Interactive Audio, Language and Culture, and Writing) your memory is reinforced, thus facilitating proficiency in such a difficult language as Chinese is for the English-speaking learner.

Rocket Languages is a great way to learn languages because it feels as if I am talking to a person face to face instead of listening to some man named dave and a lady called lin (I think) who are speaking over a microphone which is good thing so xiexie ;) . More

Makes it easy to stay on track! There is a lot of speaking practice integrated in this program, which uses novel technology to help assess your pronounciation, and you can set it to various levels, which helps a lot! Great way to save vocabulary also! More

This Program is really well made. I love all the different lesson types. This helps me to learn and memorize. I think the most helpful one is the speaking parts. They are all helpful though. I have had trouble memorizing with other programs, but this helped a lot. More

I have studying Mandarin Chinese for about four months. I started with another "highly rated" and very expensive program by a competitor. After two months I could only say hello and goodbye and a lot of phrases which I wasn't sure of their exact meaning and none of them related to any topics I wished to practice at the local Chinese restaurant (you have to look at pictures and decide what is being depicted...

I really like the format on the website. And I really like that it has a mobile app. However I travel a lot and the time I have most available to practice Chinese is when I am on a plane. You can download the MP3 files but I really wish the APP would allow you to cache the sections you are working on so they worked on a plane... More
