Way too much English spoken in the course. My experience of learning a language is that total immersion is the fastest way to learn.

In this course the constant interruption with English is very distracting.,

Response from Rocket Languages

Response from Rocket Languages: Thank you for your review, it's much appreciated. We're sorry that you're not happy with Rocket French. We've designed our courses to suit a variety of learning styles, and while total immersion is great, we've found it's not a very practical approach for a self-study online course. In Rocket French (and other languages), we break down the conversations in English so that learners can understand what's being said and why, but learners do have the option to immerse themselves in the conversations without any English explanations at all by using the "Play conversation" button in Play It! if they want to. I hope that helps! All the best with your language learning.

I purchased this course to give me a chance to practice speaking. I had to you 3 different browsers before it would accept my microphone. I find some of the voice responses I made were no were near what I said when fetched. I'm going to keep going for a while but may cancel.

I like the lessons. The only downside is that I like to do lessons on a device -- specifically, a waterproof iPod while I do cardio in the pool for an hour -- not on my computer or phone. Unfortunately, with your program, I have to download one lesson at a time, rather than download all the lessons at once so I can put them into a file and transfer them to my device. That's the reason I would not purchase from you again. If there is a work around that would allow me to do a single download, like I can with Pimsleur, I would definitely buy from you again.

I like the lessons and the reinforcement activities as I really feel that I will recall the various words and phrases in my longer term memory. The emphasise on pronunciation is good but even at an easy setting sometimes the words don't register correctly - however it is good on improving my speech.
There are a few annoyances - the lesson is 20 minutes, not sure why we need the opening and closing music. Paul does seem to speak English with a strange accent which is distracting. Given the price of the course I would assume that this is aimed at adults so we don't need the forced cheerfulness and "jokes" that are included. I would rather the lesson had more actual learning content and less slang words.
I purchased the course as it has grammar lessons - these are OK but I generally have a lot of questions on minor points which are not covered - a reference as to whether these will be covered later in the course would be useful.
I would also like to know how the 3 levels equate to external standards. For the UK for instance if you do the 3 levels is this equivalent to a GCSE qualification or would it be more A level standard as I would like to take my French further.

I’ve just started my second lesson so it seems premature to give a survey but I would like to continue with the lessons so I am doing this survey. So far so good

Good but it would be better if you had more help with the pronunciation of the Mandarin words. I know I can listen to your recording and mine but I can’t seem to figure out how to fix my pronunciation to match what is taught
