This is an excellent program, in my opinion better than the comparable Pimsleur product, because it makes an attempt to explain the grammar. The dialogues are well spoken and practical. The main shortcoming is that there is no follow-up program... More

I tried learning French using a CD set and books, but found the process slow and inflexible. With RF, I am able to vary the pace of learning and really focus on pronunciation. I also like the different forms of learning offered and the mix between conversational French and grammar... More

The Arabic course is unique in that it teaches colloquial Arabic which is more likely to be understood by the average person. I personally am using it to increase my vocabulary to supplement my MBA and classical Arabic usage... More

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

I am a new user of Rocket Languages, and I am having a great time. For years I played around with the idea of learning the Korean language, but I had no idea how to take the first step. Rocket has given me the opportunity to study Korean at my own pace, without worrying about deadlines or expectations... More

I like the different types of exercises - I've tried other methods but for software based course this seems better than other I've tried. I have a big problem with my pronunciation so being able to hear myself and being scored is great. More

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

Rocket Languages is a wonderful tool for everyone who wants to expand their vocabulary in other languages. I personally have been taking Spanish and like my life motto, "I regret nothing." I would recommend Rocket Languages to anyone who needs to learn a different language for school or for pleasure. More

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...

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

Amazing, but the understanding my speech could do some work. Sometimes I'll say it the same and get a low grade, but after multiple attempts after I'll get the 100%. And short words aren't understood at all by the computer at times. More

I purchased Rocket Korean in August of 2016, yet I have just now begun exploring just how many things it can do! I absolutely love it and get online everyday. I have a 2 hour minimum study goal per day, and with Rocket Languages, it is SO easy to accomplish that! The two hours fly right by! One thing I don't like is how in the Interactive Audio Lessons, there are TONS of extremely long phrases I've already found just in Module 1... More

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...

I was very apprehensive about buying this because I'm a student and this seemed like a huge investment. That impression changed after the first module. I had been trying to learn French from YouTube tutorials and Duolingo for a while and Rocket's software did better than both of those and has made me feel that it was worth the price I paid... More

The Spanish course does an adequate job of starting one learning the language. The technique used is anything but new as I have used it over many years for two of the several languages I know. The price for the first set of lessons is reasonable at less than $100 but then the price escalates. More
