Definitely better than Rosetta Stone, Designs are nice and everything is crisp. Might actually be easier to use too! Overall I would give this program a solid 4/5 and Rosetta a 3.5/5. Thumbs up to Rocket Languages! More

Much better than Rosetta Stone. The practice things on-line really make me feel like I know the material. Downloading the lessons and listening to them (and talking back) works great in the car. You need to repeat them until they make sense... More

The record with voice recognition grading really helps to get your pronunciation right, and the playback of your voice really helps you find out why you did get the grade you expected. These tools give a strong incentive to practice speaking, and have helped me to progress faster... More

The amount of information here is staggering for a beginner like myself,however I'm lucky for 2 reasons.Firstly,I have been using Memrise for 18 months so many of the words are familiar to me and secondly my Philipinna wife lived in Japan for 25 years and is completely fluent in Japanese so I don't have a problem with the voice playback as I never use it...

The price can't be beat! I especially enjoy that I control what and when I want to focus on for my study sessions. The interactive audio sessions actually helps me to think in the target language. I'm having problems with the speech recognition and will likely need to contact tech support; however, the first few hours into the course and I'm enjoying what I received for the price. More

Surprisingly great course! I like to learn conversationally and with audio while driving. This seems to be one of the few internet based courses that has the ability to download mp3's so I can listen in the car (or on the plane without internet)! Can learn with network, visuals, flashcards and pdf'able lessons and even downloadable pdf books! ... 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.

Overall this program is excellent. The lessons make sense and the progression seems natural. The only major problem with the course is the voice recognition. It's terrible. Obviously if I was a great speaker of Mandarin I wouldn't need this program, but even when I'm really close to the right pronunciation, it doesn't register it as correct... More

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. More
