Listening to the audio lessons is very boring. You hear someone saying something in Arabic, and then they tell you what it is in english with a little bit of filler and sometimes a lame joke. There's too much english speaking in between the arabic, and after listening to it I don't recall anything from it. I then started doing some of the other activities and they're all very basic. This is much less advanced than Rosetta Stone. Rosetta Stone doesn't choose the most useful phrases to teach you when you start off, but at least it reinforces what you are learning in an easy way to pick up the language without a lot of filler talk in the language you already speak (english in my case). It's hard to motivate myself to listen to more of these Rocket Arabic lessons because they are so boring.

Response from Rocket Languages

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Robert - We have added in a ton more standalone words and phrases that can be used with voice recognition. As well as that we have revamped the Language & Culture lessons.

I decided not to pursue learning French after paying for the course the week after I purchased it as I wanted to change to the Italian course instead. I asked for a refund twice through the help section and have still not received a refund or acknowledgment that I have asked for a refund. This is a real shame as I was going to purchase the Italian course once I got the refund now I don't trust Rocket Languges to fulfill their promises.

Response from Rocket Languages

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Clare - I am sorry about the miscommunication here. If the wrong course is bought, or even if a Level is too easy or hard, then we will swap it for no cost. I am not sure what happened with our emails to you, please check your junk folder. In the meantime a refund has been issued!

Overall, Rocket Languages is, without a doubt, well worth the price. The value for your money is the best. There really is not a better foreign language program out there. I have tried others as they do not match the quality of Rocket's.

Sorry I am very disappointed. I have tried to download using my mac so that I can transfer and listen & learn while driving to work. I cannot download anything even following the mac instructions by using Control click. There is no downloading option!!!

A very disappointing course. May I suggest that you review the free DUOLINGO course and try and learn from them. I have also found many errors in the text. No, I do not intend to go back through and innumerate them for you.

Response from Rocket Languages

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Ian - Rocket Spanish had a full review in 2016, I would hope that everything is fine now! (Update 2020: We are going through another full review of Rocket Spanish right now, this should be complete by June 2020)

Disappointed with not being able to download on android, windows, or apple platforms. This defeats the purpose of my purchase - wanted to listen during work drive. Also app not allowing the voice option. Why browser version only?

Not able to take quiz on android app.

Response from Rocket Languages

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Mark - The Android and iOS apps have been fully updated, and you can now play the Interactive Audio courses in the background.

this program sucks, its not even functional and makes you restart whole lessons because it cant even save your answers. DO NOT BUY IT!!!!! Use something else, its loading times are horrible. The content is good but you cant even load the page and save your answers so theirs no use in the content!!!!! :(

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Colby - This was a bug, it is now fixed!

The product is not working and is confusing. The price is okay but some parts are working fine and others are the most horrible thing that is possible is that the "Play it part" is not working and is not compatible my computer and that is causing problems with the learning experience. I would not recommend it to a friend especially with quality headphknes

Response from Rocket Languages

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Teertho - Looks like we had a bug. Should be fixed now!

My partner has RocketFrench, which is great and which he enjoys. I am a language teacher, so I help reinforce.
Now, I just bought RocketGerman -with the same hopes of the French version- and lasted 4 minutes of intro and am SHOCKED: I want to learn German, so why is Nik being such a bitch to Paul, saying his German accent is not as sexy as a French accent?! Why is she saying "especially if your daily job does not require a lot of brain power". Not to mention her horrid voice with unbearable high pitch. How am I supposed to learn with a condescending teacher? No thank you!
I want to talk to someone from customer service.

Response from Rocket Languages

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Justine - Yes, we have had some comment about Niks voice/attitude and it seems to be rather polarizing. To that end we have re-recorded Level 1 of Rocket German (Update: release date will be end of June 2020)

I wouldn't recommend this program. It don't live up to what it promises to provide. If you're a student in college or interested in taking something to test out of ASL 1 and 2, don't expect this to provide that ability. There are much better programs out there, some of which have more to offer for free.

Response from Rocket Languages

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Ramon - As of 2015 Rocket Sign Language has been fully updated. It now has over 2,500 videos of different signs!
