The best feature of Rocket French is that I can use the program any time of the day, which is handy because I work a full time job and cannot be flexible with my time. It has so far proven useful for helping me develop my speaking and comprehension skills... More

Rocket French seems to be doing well teaching me introductory french. It is very in depth compared to the free resources for learning french out there. Sometimes the audio lessons have a little too much chit chat for my liking, but on the positive side it follows an amusing story and often explains the new words and phrases well... More

Rocket Japanese is a pretty good introduction to Japanese. It's definitely far better than Rosetta Stone and a few other programs I had some experience with (but fortunately never actually wasted money on), but despite how they boast about teaching grammar, it does a woefully inadequate job of teaching even the most basic grammar, and there are some strange choices for vocabulary to teach: for instance, there is an entire survival kit that is more than 80% words that I will never use because I don't drink alcohol or eat pork or shrimp...

Rocket Japanese is definitely worth the money: for the price of one year of weekly language course, you actually get more to learn and practice. I really enjoy the audio courses which are delightful. And the interactive website is well designed as well, except the audio recognition system which still needs some improvement... More

The audio lessons are presented very well. They are by far the best part of the program. The written tests and multiple choice tests work fine. The interactive voice tests are sometimes glitchy. As others have said, the website and iOS app can sometimes have issues... More

I thought that rocket languages for Arabic was good for what it is. Nothing can substitute actual immersion in the language with live native speakers, but shy of that, rocket languages helps one who has a busy full time schedule like me, to squeeze in a few minutes of Arabic every day here and there...

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)...

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... More

As with any language, immersion and conversation will get you the farthest, but Rocket Spanish does a good job at giving you a wide range of vocabulary and practice with the spoken language. The reinforcement tools can seem tedious at times, but repetition and commitment is vital to learning a new language... More
