Course #1's audio lessons were really excellent. The timing of the dialogue/repeat sections is spot on, the native speakers have very clear accents, and you learn a lot quite quickly. It is easy to put them on in the background and make several additional passes through the material to cement the teachings. I found the accompanying grammar lessons to be difficult to retain in the 'mostly text' format, and they often don't follow along with where you are in the audio lessons at all.

Course #2 is somewhat the opposite. The native speakers (and host) all have distinct accents, the dialogue timing is a mess, and the content is all over the place. One minute you're basically redo-ing a lesson from Course #1, and the next you're totally lost when everything switches to 'casual' speech, which you've had almost no exposure to thus far. Alternately, the grammar courses are now structured to expound upon specific parts of the audio, which is an improvement.

I was VERY happy with Course #1 overall, but I am soured on the audio portion of Course #2. When the dialogue-repeat sections sometimes go word-by-word, but give you 10 seconds to speak, it becomes very difficult to learn the line in entirety.

The microphone speaking part of the browser is terrible. I have 3 headsets (all expensive) and also used the microphone on the laptop. For simple words like Nom, Bonjour (I am getting zero or sorry I didnt catch that). I know I am not fluent yet, but i've got those words down, but the software occasionally wont get what i say. Very annoying...

There isn't an easy way for me to learn ASL and this has been incredibly helpful to me. This is like Duolingo for ASL.

Learning languages is really nice here; it sticks. Reciting the vocabulary and having it "graded" is really helpful for pronunciation. The "Play It!" portion is extremely helpful when it comes to being able to speak the language on cue. And when you're learning Russian, like me, or a language with a different writing system, "Write It!" can be frustrating and challenging yet extremely beneficial.

Response from Rocket Languages

Hi Ali, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. It's awesome to hear that you are benefiting from the interactive elements, such as "Play It!," woven into our Rocket Russian course. All the best with your Russian language learning!

The lessons are far too long. I like to finish a lesson in one sitting but they are so long, it's impossible. I groan when I see the flashcards with 70 entries. There is no sense of accomplishment. I tend to avoid starting lessons because it seems like drudgery trying to get through them and that isn't a good way to learn. So yes , I am disappointed in my purchase. I had high hopes . I had previously done the 'Spanish with Paul' lessons. They had they're shortcomings too but I felt the lessons were a better length and I stuck with them and learned a lot more.

Response from Rocket Languages

Hi Rick, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you are finding the lessons too long. Here at Rocket Languages we want to ensure that all our linguistic content is comprehensive and in-depth, but we are also aware that motivation and a sense of accomplishment is critical to learning. As such, your suggestion regarding the flashcards has been passed on to our Product Development team. In the meantime, you might have a better experience with our more interactive reinforcement activities like "Hear It! Say It!" All the best with your Spanish language learning!

Fun although it is pretty tough to understand the verbs, and all the conjugations, especially the way they describe it. All though with more exposure it becomes natural.

Response from Rocket Languages

Hi Owen, thank you for your review, it's great to hear that you are finding our Rocket Spanish course is a fun way to learn the language. As for the difficulty you are experiencing with the verb conjugation explanations, I have passed your feedback on to our Development Team. Verb conjugation can be a particularly tricky part of learning Spanish, but we're confident that through using our reinforcement activities like "Flashcards" you'll nail them. Happy learning!
