Accessible and targeted, this course has been really helpful so far. No one else in my family or circle of friends is trying to learn Russian, so it's been harder to find authentic audio, which this course has really helped with. More

So far so good! I'm learning phrases fairly quickly. It would be helpful to have a walkthrough on basic letter sounds before starting to dive into phrases and grammar, though. I still can't figure out the r sound and feel like I'm having issues with each lesson as a result. More

I fell in love with Japanese through Anime. The Japanese Grammar is so different from all the other languages I speak. One really has to learn to think like a Japanese person and I think Rocket Japanese really has the best approach to it... More

I was happy with Rocket French in the beginning but as I am now in lesson 6 I find it extremely frustrating. I cannot remember 2-3 phrases and then say them quickly enough. I am constantly being cut off in mid sentence, and no I haven't paused, and the voice recognition is not very good... More

I completed Pimsleur Egyptian Arabic Level 1 and attempted some Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) for 2 weeks before going back to focusing on a dialect since nobody speaks MSA. This course is great but to get the most out of it, you have to focus on writing & reading everything (no shortcuts) in Arabic Script as many times as necessary until you don't have to rely on the latin (Franco-Arabic Script)...

Unfortunately, this software does not allow me to become fluent, as this only makes you an "intermediate" speaker with a premium level of 1 compared to others who have 3.

I have really enjoyed the rocket languages learning experience! The only difficult thing is staying movivated! The price is fair, expensive but fair as you get a lot for your dollar. I would recommend writing down everything you say, think, and learn and reviewing it weekly if your true desire is to learn the language quickly and efficiently! I was satisfied with how the module layer the self although some restructuring should be considered as the gradual progression is self-affirming however every so often there is quit a large jump in difficulty...

I am a bilingual person (translator from English into French) trying to learn Japanese. I've been trying several methods books, on-line, etc., over several years. Even though this method is far more interesting and educational than Rosetta, I feel that it is lacking of grammatical points or explanations, so to be a complete learner, you need to complement it by another mean (books or apps)...

As a completely new person to Korean, this course is not what I should have chosen to begin with. To be able to feel like you "completed" the lesson, you have to write things in a language they have not taught you yet! The lessons are too long and having to learn the "extras" to feel like you completed the material they were focusing on is also frustrating... More

A good product to get started with the basic conversation. Every sentence is broken into pieces and every word is explained in great detail. As long as someone wants to start conversing then its good but if the emphasis is on taking exams such as JLPT then it may not be very useful as its purpose is different. More

This is really a helpful tool to learn a new language. Especially for Korean where it is not a romance language and I have to learn a new alphabet. I love that they split up the letters into different topics so that it would be easier to learn and that they gave a small description of why that letter it and how it is supposed to be said as well as having audio and small quizzes at the end...
