Rocket Languages has interactive audio lessons that makes it easier and more fun to learn from. In addition, the reviews at the end are very helpful and different from any other program I've used. I have learned way more efficiently now with so much more to look forward too. More

The package is very well organized and well-planned, but I find it confusing. After completing Duolingo and Santamaria's Synergy Spanish, I'm not finding my proper level in Rocket Spanish and the system doesn't let me move ahead... More

So far RL is okay. The audios are entertaining, but a tad slow and I wished that they were a bit less English-heavy as it really breaks my French-thinking mindset. Any technical issues (and there are quite a few given the nature of the voice recognition software) that are reported fall onto deaf ears... More

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

I found the program very useful. This makes me so motivated to accomplish my learning of German even if it's seems difficult at the beginning(especially i'm learning it for the first time). I can't deny that there is a remarquable progress in my learning due to the methodology of this Rocket Language. More

Good for those who like to control the content of their learning rather than going in an order dictated to them. I like the email reminders to encourage return to learning. Clicking on phrases to hear the pronunciation is also very helpful, as is playing the games to test knowledge. More

The beginner's course is good. The intermediate course is ok; but, not as good as the beginner's course. The Platinum (advanced course) is poorly done. In the Platinum course, the presentation is sloppy and there is very little interaction or practice time. More

The review games are an awesome idea. The don't have the structure they need to help with the learning process. I would prefer the lessons to include more vocab and less history. I know the history is important but the language learning is what I'm here for. More

On the plus side: • I like the way grammatical rules are discussed in understandable, laymans’ terms • It’s easy to learn/revise words and phrases • It’s easy to develop your listening skills to understand what people are saying and its easy to develop skills in identifying what to say But there is room for improvement: • Speech recognition needs improvement o Gives some poor pronunciation 100%, but doesn’t recognise closer attempts o When sentences are long it often cuts you off o Often (every session) crashes for no reason and you have to log in again • Its easy to put all your effort into reading and writing – rather than developing listening and speaking skills More

I just went through the introduction, the only problem I had would be there's no spelling in the conversation. If I would be listening to this program without pre-study the contents, it's hard to remember the sentence afterwards. More

I like that so much of the exercises use audio. Too many language teachers end up teaching how to read a language, but put very little emphasis on speaking and comprehension. I also really like the dictation exercises, mostly because they give me practice in comprehension of spoken Spanish. More

Your program is fine and efficient. Nevertheless the dialogues are a little boring ("Beijing seems to be a big city" , well, who doesn't know it?) and there is a BIG mistake in lesson 5.5 Places worth checking out in Beijing (the quizz) : the Great Wall of China CANNOT be seem from the moon !
