I have enjoyed learning Arabic the Rocket way but now for about the last 10 or 12 lessons they have been the same lesson. "Greeting". I would like to learn something new I would to be able to speak more quickly. Maybe some letter exercised would be beneficial.

Rocket Language course for German Language study is really useful and one can attend to the course at his or her timings. One aspect that is of highly appreciative isthat what is required of one to go over to a Language Lab all theway is easily reachable at our home and at our study desk. At any time of the day or night , I can just open my Computer and listen to and respond to through interactive audio lessons. Thats awesome and I like it. Since I would like to be outspoken though not critical , I expected certain simple grammer learnings like the prepositions, modal verbs infinite verbs and their conjugations . pronouns , cases and tenses. If these aspects of the grammer is introduced to the beginner, it would have been still better for a beginner to understand any simple sentences in german language. To sum up I liked the lessons that I have covered till date.

I have just begun using this product. I currently use RosettaStone and Fluencia and other online products, some of which are very good. It is too soon to make comparisons. I recognize it is premature to write an accurate review.

TL:DR -These courses are worth bothering with and a fair deal but don't expect perfection or a miracles.

This was sold to me (by external reviews) as being better than Rosetta stone and the current market leader in comprehensive language learning for self study, and yeah it is better and may be the best all around, but its still far from perfect. There are other products that are distinctly better for certain aspects of Japanese study, but this one is a good all-rounder.

It is very much like a by the book language study course that you would get in a generic language school.
Its not ground breaking, but its very solid and should successfully teach any diligent student some extent of their target language.

Given that you get hundreds of hours of lessons that you can do at your own pace I think the price is great value but I can't quite give 5 stars because there are some flaws in the product and service.

Unlike many free apps you aren't limited to 5 or 10 mins per day which means that the system can take its time to teach you slowly and methodically, and that if you have a lot of free time (and almost everybody does at the time of writing mid-April 2020) then you can do an hour or more everyday.

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Sean - Thanks for submitting a review. Some interesting observations in there! I thought that I would comment on a couple of things;

This year Rocket Japanese is scheduled to have a total review of the course content. We realize that there are some issues and are moving to address those.

With regards the romanization toggle; this seems to be working. Can you please provide screenshots to customer support of where it doesn't seem to be working?

There was an issue with the voice recognition difficulty in that you had to refresh the page for the change to take effect. That has now been rectified, so it should just work.

And we will look into the review system as well. In fact we are re-factoring the entire members area into a new code base, so it's timely to look at some aspects that haven't been looked at for a while. The new version is due out later in the year.

Too early to tell.
Also, this review page is very irritating because I cannot get rid of it or submit it. I cannot go into the lessons until i am able to do something with this page?????
200 character minimum is difficult when you have little to say because you are new to the program.
Perhaps you should consider making the review optional rather than compulsory so clients don't get caught up in your requirements for the review. This type of action on your part is the stuff that makes your program lose some of it's lustre. I hope not to see this type of sales activity by your company again.

I am fairly new to learning French having tried a couple of other on-line French courses which mainly focused on the written aspect with some audio. Rocket French certainly got me moving along with the correct pronunciation and the speaking. The lessons were comprehensive in their explanation and I felt as though I learned something new with every lesson. The trail experience has been very positive. As we are about to start traveling (sadly not France this time) I will have to delay purchasing as this stage.

I like the way you have to talk. I have been trying to learn spanish fore a few years now, and I can understand a lot.
But when it comes to talking i got stuck.
Now after almost finishing the first module I see that I can answer the questions in the lessons not only repeating, but building new sentences with other words.
I am confident that I will learn to speak.

I like the interaction in the 'Play it' section but there are problems;

1. The programme frequently states that it has not heard my reply - despite that when I press playback my reply is very clearly there - this is very frustrating and time consuming.

2. The programme makes no allowance for a beginner taking time making a reply which inevitably takes a lot longer than a fluent speaker would take - this again is very frustrating and prevents making best use of the programme.

As a completely new person to Korean, this course is not what I should have chosen to begin with. To be able to feel like you "completed" the lesson, you have to write things in a language they have not taught you yet! The lessons are too long and having to learn the "extras" to feel like you completed the material they were focusing on is also frustrating. I have no incentive to move through the material, because I feel like I can't even perfect the first few lessons!
The voice detection sometimes is very poor, which means saying the same thing fifty times at lightning speed to get credit for it. I like other programs for learning Korean better than this one. I might come back to it after I have a better foundation.

Response from Rocket Languages: The Write it! tests can (and probably should) be left until you are more comfortable doing them. In saying that we will look at how these Tests work for beginners. With regards voice detection, the best results are achieved with a headset mic, or using one of the apps.
