I like the audio lessons. The new "know it" part seems a little redundant. The quizes are much too easy. There is very little practice writing or otherwise to really get concepts from a lesson nailed into the brain. And finally the organization is a totally a mess! Where is the overall lesson plan? There is so much repetition between the "Beginners Book" or whatever it is called and the language and cultural lessons, and the lesson numbers don't match, etc...I think there should be at least an order, like read lesson 3.1 in the manual, then listen to the audio lesson 3.1 and then do the cultural lesson 3.6 or something like that. Also the "say it" part where you speak to the computer doesn't really help me at all or my pronunciation. Hearing it helps with that.
Overall it is a pretty good method but could use a better format and overall organization. Bueno, creo que eso es todo.

I am about ready to give up on you. I was going to do another lesson tonight, but when i saw my percentage completion on Modual 1 and 2 was at 93% instead of the 100% that was there this morning. How do you expect anyone to complete anything if you keep adding new, and in my case, unnecessary, lessons to the areas already completed?

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Richard - Thanks for submitting a review. As part of our annual review of our courses, sometimes we make improvements to the lessons. Unfortunately, the changes made yesterday impacted on your percentage complete as we added in some new phrases and we improved a few of the quiz questions in some of the Module 1 lessons. So, sorry about that, but it is part of our continuous improvement strategy!

Rocket misses the mark in many ways. Teaching phrases without a literal translation is not helpful. Ideally, one should know what each word in the sentence is, so that one can then compose one's own sentences. Additionally, the speakers speak very quickly and one can't really tell how they are pronouncing the words in spite of having them spelled out in cyrillic. Also when teaching color names, why aren't' there colors on the screen, or at least on the flash cards? And when there are nouns, why not a picture of the object? I've been learning languages for many years, and I like some of Rocket Language's features, but I have to say that Pimsleur, does a much better job of teaching one to actually speak and understand the language, and they give literal translations and help one understand the context and syntax of words. But Pimsleur only teaches the audio, and they are way too expensive to only do that. Rocket Languages does offer voice comparison, but I have my doubts as to how good it really is at telling me how close I am to correct pronunciation. Rocket Languages is okay, but not the greatest. However, it is affordable. But, their customer service isn't very good.

When I was using Rosetta Stone, whenever I opened it (and I could always find access) it opened to wherever I had left off. That would all be very helpful for Rocket language to offer and it doesn't, or I don't know how to find it. Perhaps I could get some help.

Response from Rocket Languages: Rocket does do that. You just have to earn some points on a lesson for it to be remembered!

Unfortunately, this software does not allow me to become fluent, as this only makes you an "intermediate" speaker with a premium level of 1 compared to others who have 3. The software for Arabic really needs some more information on writing the language, as it is by far the hardest lessons to learn. I have studied it for hours and still, I do not understand one bit the Arabic alphabet and how to write in Arabic. Other than that this is this software is above average that allows you to learn at your own pace. I also enjoy that I can use this software forever for only %150.

I am exploring rocket chinese, I miss some examples of practice diffent conversation situations and also the quiz is static, when you repeat the quiz is very easy to answer. The rocket review is very good, but should be also dinamic. Anyway I try many chinese courses and this one is the one that I feel more confortable for the moment.

I am having trouble getting the accent right. This is impeding my progress. I need to re-watch, read and listen many times and still my accent is terrible. This is a lot more work than I expected, but I will plug onward.
