I think that it is a very helpful place to start if you are just starting to learn Korean, or if you just want to learn the basics to get you trough if you are going to visit Korea. I like how they actually test you and you can choose between Easy, Medium, and Hard in the Rocket Record... More

I'm enjoying this course so far. It turns out that I am rediscovering my schoolboy French very easily. New words take so much longer but I'll keep at it. One thing to improve if possible. The special character screen keyboard does not have nearly enough French characters in it... More

I have used Rocket French for several years. The dialogue is relevant and the reinforcement lessons help to make connections that aid memorization. However, the voice recognition is spotty and does not always work, and it takes a long time for it to register... More

Sign Language is pretty good, but I wish there was more of a way to test where I am at. I am not sure how well I grasp the concepts because there is not really any interaction...It is a good way to learn by yourself though. 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

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 like that you are a lifetime member and can go back to previous lessons again and again. For a new learner, the repetition is critical. I also like that you get the learning in context of conversations but also get the explanations of grammar and translations into English so you know exactly what you're saying, unlike some competing courses.

I am learning Rocket French and i do enjoy listening to the audio lessons in the car.. My only criticism is that i wish there were more audio lessons. Also the quiz section for the language and culture lessons are frustrating, it only tests you on the words/sentences that are listed and maybe should be testing more on the actual theory behind the subject...

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

Bottom line...this system really works if you keep up with it. Find a way to integrate it into your daily routine. Which, by the way is relatively easy to do and you will be speaking that 2nd language. 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...

The content of the course seems good through module 1. The voice recognition has some challenges at times. An example is even though I say the phrase and it is recorded for playback, the system will indicate that it did not get it and therefore cannot validate it... More
