Rocket Japanese — India
8 months ago

A good product to get started with the basic conversation. Every sentence is broken into pieces and every word is explained in great detail. As long as someone wants to start conversing then its good but if the emphasis is on taking exams such as JLPT then it may not be very useful as its purpose is different. More

I fell in love with Japanese through Anime. The Japanese Grammar is so different from all the other languages I speak. One really has to learn to think like a Japanese person and I think Rocket Japanese really has the best approach to it... More

I did not purchase this product but it was instrumental in my learning "muchos palabras" in Espanol. I am thankful for this opportunity to learn many of the words that I was not familiar with. The fact that this opportunity was free makes it even sweeter. More

Rocket Spanish is well organized and fairly easy to use. I definitely like the experience and the process. HOWEVER - They are very wishy-washy with the meanings of phrases. In an effort to teach you different phrases to say the same thing, the designers forget that words have meaning... More

I first bought this language program over a year a go, just for fun but though my own fault, I didn't really appreciate nor use it properly, hence no results. Recently, my reasons for needing to speak Italian changed and as with all goals, when you have a big enough "why" you find a way instead of finding excuses and since restarting with a routine and discipline, I have to say, I now look forward to my daily sessions...

The course structure enables learner to advance at his or her own pace. Sometimes the sentences are too long and the pronunciation too difficult to hear - even though my hearing is excellent. When I do these activities in Rocket Korean and upon listening to Pimsleur Korean in my car, I find that the Korean sound system to be more challenging than the sound system in most other languages...

Enjoying Rocket Italian. The flow of the lessons is good. Both the website and the iOS apps are quite good. There are some minor usability issues worth noting. 1. I can't find a way to speed up the recorded lessons which would be helpful for me as I have some background in the language so the early lessons could be moved through faster... More

This is my first time using the computer exclusively to attempt to learn Spanish, or study any subject, really. So far, I find it very satisfactory. I'm having a little difficulty with the Spanish keyboard is there not an "inverted" ?

I think Rocket Languages is a great way to learn a language online. The audio lessons are great. However, I would like to see more practice questions on grammar and a lot more exercises to do for the prices we are paying (not just the 5 questions at the end of the lesson). More

Mandarin is very very difficult and Dave just makes it sound too too easy! Lin is awesome!
