1. You could give more practice with the words, before passing to the flashcards.
2. More activities can be introduced, such as putting in the missing words in the sentences, and others like those. Currently, the major way of learding is merely the typical drills. It is too much technical, which is good if it is something additional, but without the greater variety of the excercized it is too inhuman, and somewhat boring. I am also comparing it with the Babbel, and they have some adaptions to the humans, when the dialog is going on, and one has to add the missing words. So, more humanlike activities would be useful.
Cannot say anything about the customer service, because did not use it yet.

I am just starting Rocket Japanese and so far I quite like it, with one exception so far. I decided to approach learning Japanese methodically and to try to master each concept before moving on. The problem is that in Module 1, there is a section on numbers, and it teaches numbers from 1 to 100,000,000. Obviously, there are patterns and generalizations one can make across the 10s, 100s, 1000s, etc, but there is a lot to learn here in one large gulp and now I have lost my momentum with the language learning. I feel the numbers should be introduced in smaller chunks so that one can progress with new vocabulary and grammar at the same time. I have been bogged down with number learning for days.

Response from Rocket Languages

Hi Laura, thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear that you've lost momentum. Learning a new language is a huge undertaking, especially a language with a completely different writing system like Japanese. The Level 1 course is aligned with the JLPT, meaning we are teaching the number basics including 百 and 万 in this level. We've kept the lesson light, with less than 50 phrases in the testing section. The numbers lessons for Levels 2 and 3 deal with more advanced concepts like counters. We've emailed you with some helpful tips for learning a new language which we hope will help you get the most out of your course. All the best!

I think that the content is really good and I have enjoyed the level 1 course that I purchased. However, the advertising seems misleading. They promise that you will reach a good conversational level after level 1. However, they do not teach you past tense or future tense. For example, it's pretty hard to have any conversation without learning how to ask "How was your weekend?" or "What did you do yesterday?" Also, after paying, $99 for Level 1, you have to pay an additional $149 for level 2, in which you do start getting into past and future tense (at least you do in the free teaser lesson). If they described the contents of each level better and had a pricing structure that made more sense, I could probably give it a five.

Response from Rocket Languages

Thanks so much for your review and feedback. Rocket Spanish is a comprehensive course, with a lot of content to cover in order to effectively teach spoken and written Spanish. While we do cover one means of talking about the future in Level 1 (the equivalent of "going to”), more lessons on the future and the past tenses can be found in Level 2, as this fits in with the CEFR level descriptions, since you're only expected to be able to talk about past events and future plans at B1 level.

Rocket Spanish Level 1 is equivalent to CEFR levels A1/A2
Rocket Spanish Level 2 is equivalent to CEFR levels A2/B1
Rocket Spanish Level 3 is equivalent to CEFR levels B1/B2

Works okay, very helpful context, but the part where you speak the words and they judge your pronunciation is super super broken for me, rendering the whole app half-useless. It either can not hear what I'm saying at all, or is way way off base about what I said. I've tried switching devices, switching to an external mic, etc etc but the problem seems to be ROCKETBOOK. So far Duolingo has proven to be better, and much more affordable. I hope they fix the voice part...

Just starting to test the waters with Rocket French. Can't really say much yet since it's too early, but I keep noticing that the speech recognition isn't working accurately. My voice is either not getting recognized or if I deliberately mispronounce I get 100%. That's a bit of a downer. Considering the cost of this course, I'd expect it to work without issues.

I have completed the first level. It is challenging and good in its repetition using speaking, writing and self-rating.

So far so good, quite pricy though. And maybe it would be fun with something for visual learners. Overall it is very good but still has potential to improve. I have no experience of the customer service so that one is neither good or bad.
How likely I'm to buy it again depends on if I get a big discount on another language.

Response from Rocket Languages

Thanks so much for your review Daniel. We love to get feedback from our customers on how we can improve the course, so if there is a visual aspect that you think would be helpful, please don't hesitate to contact our customer support team ([email protected]) with your suggestions, and we will pass them on to the relevant teams. All the best with your language learning!
