Rosetta Stone and several other courses, all picture oriented, were getting me nowhere. I'm not an infant and no longer learn is such an inefficient manner. Rocket is much better. I'm an adult- just tell me what the words mean...

I love learning new languages! I can speak conversational German and, to a lesser extent, Croatian. Recently I was inspired to learn Spanish by a friend and so I spent hours and hours poring over reviews of the various online language learning options...

Very well designed course, it is easier to learn the sounds in Chinese which is the most difficult part about learning the language once you memorize basic vocabulary. Excellent Course, highly recommended.

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...

I am just completing the 2nd module of level 2 German. I did the beginners Rosetta beginners course and that has got me to the right level for Rocket level 2. I like the Rocket approach which I think works better than Rosetta would when things get a little more complicated as the Rosetta method is done without a single word of English in the course which can make it hard to work out what is going on if a simple picture isn’t enough...

The Rocket Japanese course is simple to use at the earlier levels, but with increasing level of detail and complexity needed for such a complex language. Audios are clear and enjoyable. Unfortunately the mobile apps don't always seem to work as well as the web based programme - particularly for recording - otherwise I would rate higher.

Solid program that keeps you on track to learning a new language, or improving on one you already are familiar with. Easy, daily bites of the language are essential. I especially the like "competitive" nature of the POINTS system, where you can monitor progress against others.

On the plus side: • I like the way grammatical rules are discussed in understandable, laymans’ terms • It’s easy to learn/revise words and phrases • It’s easy to develop your listening skills to understand what people are saying and its easy to develop skills in identifying what to say But there is room for improvement: • Speech recognition needs improvement o Gives some poor pronunciation 100%, but doesn’t recognise closer attempts o When sentences are long it often cuts you off o Often (every session) crashes for no reason and you have to log in again • Its easy to put all your effort into reading and writing – rather than developing listening and speaking skills

This is my first foray into online language courses.

The vocabulary is broad and practical and I can see myself in France drawing on specific lessons in specific settings...
