I just started, I have no idea how I could rate your software at the present time. I do like that the program seems that I will be able to read and write as well becoming fluent. I expect the flash cards will serve me well...

My experience with this software has been amazing. I've only been using it for a month for 1 hour a day, and my ability to understand and speak French has grown exponentially. I can listen to French songs and watch French TV and understand a good chunk of what they are saying!

Rocket Spanish is pretty good. It's certainly better than other programs I have tried. Every so often it tests you on words you haven't learned. In one case it ends Module 1 with a survival kit of a list of 300 words, then assumes you know them in Module 2...

It is very frustrating that I cannot offline download the lessons in the app itself on my iPhone. It would have been better that way. I want to be able to use it in the car that way. I know you can download it through iTunes, but that is too cumbersome...

Arabic was the first language my son and I started learning through Rocket Languages, and we love it so much that I also purchased Rocket Spanish a few months ago.

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...

I only did the free trial and it looks like a premium product already (finished first 2 lessons using all the tools), you can´t get access to the supplementary material only (which is obvious as it´s too good to be free) but the rest is all there: audio lessons which are self-paced and very nicely taught by Nik and Paul, the voice recognition part so you can try and get results on your pronunciation comparing yourself to the native speaker (it works really!), the good idea of having all translated so no need to guess, and finally the tests and quiz so you can see how much you could improve...
