Es simplemente perfecto! Me encanta la función donde puedes hablar y te reconoce la voz perfectamente, no todas las aplicaciones cuentan con eso. Es muy buen precio, pero lamentablemente no me tengo la oportunidad para comprarlo por mi estado económico. えーと~ありがとうございます!

It is interactive how the lessons go. Unfortunately, it is at least to say "expensive".

Response from Rocket Languages

Thanks so much for your review, Bruno. While our courses might seem expensive, we do give learners lifetime access, which means that you can take all the time you need to finish the course - even if you take a 2 year break, your account remains active, and you will be able to log in again whenever you are ready. We also feel that our courses are thorough, and really teach you the language, rather than just some random phrases that aren't useful in real life situations. Our grammar lessons help our learners understand the language they are learning, and we include lots of reinforcement to help it all sink in. Finally, for those who find a one-off payment a little daunting, we offer a 6-month payment plan. I hope that helps! All the best with your language learning.

Lesson 1.7 is about to do me in. I simply cannot understand it when they're saying such long sentences and speaking so rapidly. Then again, I got made fun of once in the 90's Mexico when I said cuatro because I said it so slowly. I'm from the South. I speak English slowly and damned sure can't speak Spanish that fast. I also can't remember all those words and phrases. There were a lot of them in this lesson!

Response from Rocket Languages

Thanks so much for your review, Fred. Learning a new language, and training your ear to the new words and phrases (especially those spoken quickly), can take time and be frustrating. The best thing we can recommend is to go over the lessons many times until it all starts to sink in. Or if you are particularly frustrated, take a break, and move onto a different lesson. If there is anything specific that you would like help with, please don't hesitate to post on our forum, or contact the customer support team. All the best with your language learning!

It was okay. Experience was not too great due to microphone issue that I need to shout just to be heard by the software which leads to frustration in learning. Would recommend to travelers who are into rote learning. Opinion on buying again and recommending to a friend may change once I have completed the courses.

Rocket Chinese is definitely good value for money because the course appears to continue until you finish it at your own pace. You can take a break and come back to it no matter the timescale and for this reason, it gets a 5/5. I thought the pricing was perhaps a little expensive but still worth it because many other Chinese apps lose out on subscriptions because after a year you don't get any more time and sometimes it can take a while to get into learning Chinese. One can be enthusiastic to begin with and then realise they are not quite ready to learn it within a year's limited period and money wasted. This happened to me with Rocket Chinese, when I subscribed, after half a year, I was not really ready and lost interest and was worried I might lose my money. Well now I'm ready to learn and very enthusiastic and it took me years before it started to make sense and I'm now ready to absorb the teaching. I would definitely recommend Rocket Chinese for the reasons I stated. Other Chinese apps like Chairman Bao etc are excellent but are just way too expensive for just a year's subscription and make it not worth purchasing no matter how good it is.

Hello,
so far I appreciate Rocket Russian. I think it's a very good learning app. I have been using it since 6 days now, and I have also bought a lifetime subscription for all 3 levels.

Plus:
-) Saving vocabs functionality
-) realistic dialogues
-) overall engaging content

Minus:
-) the price!! It's super expensive (even though I got the beginning of July discount, but 185€ is still quite some money for an app; but let's see, maybe it is worth the price; there is a 60 days guaranteed refund policy still).

Improvement recommendations:
-) please add the "Saved Vocab" function to mobile phone too!!
-) general improvement of mobile app to be more like desktop web app; desktop web app has much more functionality than mobile app (and I guess most people nowadays prefer a mobile app over a desktop web app)
-) dark mode for mobile phone

Still have to see how it's going to be for the rest of the first 60 days, but currently I would still buy again and recommend it to a friend.

Best regards,
Jacob

Response from Rocket Languages

Thanks so much for your review, Jacob, it's much appreciated! We just wanted to let you know that our developer will be working on improvements to the app within the coming months, so we will pass on all of your recommendations for their consideration. All the best with your Russian language learning!

Rocket Italian is well designed to help develop both conversational Italian and an understanding of grammar and syntax. My only complaint is that the software sometimes has glitches as it speaks or listens, and doesn't always hear what you say, even when you're saying it correctly. I have tested this both with computer mic and speakers, and with headphones and dedicated lavalier mic.

Response from Rocket Languages

Thanks so much for your review. We hope you're picking up lots of new Italian words and phrases. Regarding Rocket Record being inconsistent, if you continue to have trouble, please don't hesitate to contact the Customer Support team ([email protected]) for help. All the best with your language learning!

its honestly a really good program but there should be a feature to let you slow down the audio down just a little, Korean has some completely different nuances so it hard to hear them sometimes when it so fast

Response from Rocket Languages

Thanks so much for your review, Sabian, it's much appreciated. Regarding slowing down the tutor audio, you can do that by clicking on the settings icon in the top right corner of your members area, and selecting a Tutor Audio Speed of either 0.75x or 0.5x. We hope that helps!
