What customer service? I'm only in the first lesson though, so we'll see. Im an intermediate spanish learner from university classes and took the placement test, but I wish there was a way that would tell me what I need to study or what level to be at so I don't have to pick one at random. It seems kind of expensive compared to other options, I really liked pimsleur a lot too, and rocket spanish doesn't seem as streamlined. It does give practice on speaking though that other sites didnt. I've tried paid Duolingo (level 72), and paid pimsluer (finished Module 2), I even tried paid spanish dictionary.com (which was better than expected), and this is the only one that you don't have a monthly fee for. It also has A TON of content, but lacks some of the gamification of duolingo so it's a little more dry. The learning seems less intuitive and listening based than pimsleur though. I'll update the review if I make it through very much more of rocket spanish, but this was the fourth time it asked for a review so here it is.

Following the verbiage on the conversation pieces is great When repeating the words given in vocabulary, the words are spoken way too fast and it is hard to understand or to keep up with it. My recommendation would be to speak those words slower so the non-native speaker can follow easily regardless of age or where are you from. Also, the flashcards need sound for it.

Response from Rocket Languages

Hi Valerie, thank you for your review. We're glad that you are enjoying the conversation aspects of the course, we will pass your feedback concerning the speed on to the development team. Regarding the flashcards, you can turn on audio for these by clicking on the setting gear in the activity and then selecting "Play audio on reveal." All the best!

Great so far but, too soon to really give a review. learning a few words here and there but no repetition or context make it so it's only vocabulary lessons.

Response from Rocket Languages

We're glad to hear that you are enjoying the course so far. You can repeat the vocabulary in the lessons with the Reinforcement Activities which you can find at the bottom of each lesson. All the best for your Japanese!

Some of the settings and order are fine and I am learning relatively quickly. The problem is there are some errors with the sound files or miss spellings that are frustrating and some of the longer phrases earlier on are added to vocabulary but they are never broken down or explained so it is very hard to learn them.

Non va bene avere istruzioni in inglese invece d' italiano. Anche, questo è un sito per imparare bene l'italiano e si usa una persona, Charlie, che non ha per niente una pronuncia buona in italiano. Ridicolo!

You aren't hearing me on about 30% of the words. Maybe it would be better with a headset - I am just using a laptop with the built in mic. But I've tried many times with my mouth in many different positions and different proximities to the mic - it should be able to hear me just fine.

A good learning tool.
I'm not happy with the audio it's not working 100%. On average each lesson has 5% faulty audio.
I have complained but the advice is not working, because the fault is in the app it's selves.
The only thing I can do is ignore the gaps and hope.....

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.
