For the price this is a very good program and the interactive sections are easy to understand. I've used other online programs and so far this one is the best. My main dissatisfaction with it has to do with the organization of the information presented. After the self study sections it would make sense to use the new vocabulary and/or concepts presented during the interactive lessons. For example: There's an entire lesson dealing with the weather but no where in the succeeding interactive lessons is there any discussion of weather. When vocabulary is not used, it's easily forgotten. And you end up with little sense of how to include it in conversation. Also, when new grammatical concepts are introduced in the interactive lessons there isn't always a discussion of the concept. Examples: (1) Nel, nella, negli are presented in unit 4. It's a completely new group of prepositional phrases, but there's no explanation. (2) When nouns ending in E are pluralized, the ending is always i (as in the masculine) regardless of whether the noun is masculine or feminine. I purchased an Italian grammar book and was able to clear up my confusion around this, but it should have been mentioned in one of the lessons where a plural feminine noun ended in an i. These are just the most recent issues of this kind I've encountered. There are more. So, more thought regarding organization and presentation would be warranted.

Hello Rachel, thank you for taking the time to leave such a detailed review. We're glad to hear that the interactive component of Rocket Italian is helping you with your language learning. We're sorry that you're finding the layout of the course difficult to navigate. I have shared your feedback with our Product Development team for their consideration. As it stands, our Audio lessons are designed to improve your speaking and listening skills, rather than focusing on grammar. For grammar-related topics, we recommend checking out our Language and Culture lessons. We appreciate your support and wish you all the best with your language-learning journey!

I'm extremely satisfied with Rocket, I have been studying Japanese for about a month and already know more than 100 words and have gotten some clue about the grammar. I mostly know 'survival phrases' at this point but could probably get by in a simple Japanese conversation. It has really been the fastest progress I've ever made with learning a language.
It is good at making you learn through repetition, by reading, writing, and listening, but not nearly as agonizingly repetitive as something like Duolingo.
It is good at encouraging you to keep going by showing your streak and having reminders that tenacity is key and you're making good progress.
I think the fact that it is a one-time payment rather than a subscription makes it worth it.
I appreciate how in-depth the lessons are and how they walk you through each and every word and their nuance. I also appreciate the culture lessons.
One complaint I have is that the vocabulary lists in audio lessons are often incomplete, or only include a word within a sentence and don't provide a definition for the word itself.
Also, words and phrases from previous lessons are often brought up again in later lessons very rarely.

Overall, I'm very satisisfied with the product and approach so far, particularly coming from 7 months of Duolingo. It is a significant upgrade in experience over Duolingo. It has the right balance of drill and practice and grammar fundamentals, in the context of a conversation-driven leaning style. It seems natural and well thought out. I truly appreciate that I can skip what I want in deference to things I already know. I know I will soon get to things I will not be able to skim or skip and I look forward to that. The "say it" element of the structure is excellent. It is forcing me to speak, which is exactly what Duolingo does not do well. I have lots of words and lots of conjugations, but on the spot I am like a deer in the headlights, and Rocket's style forces you to just "talk", mistakes and all, which is great. The speed and clarity of the voice actors is excellent and it makes listening easy and approachable. The rolling text approach on screen is great, as I can look at the scroll when I want to and look away (to test myself better) when I don't want to.

A couple of constructive things to say.

The nice thing about the course is that I can repeat over and over the phrases and words. I tend not to go overboard with perfection, but my German friend tells me that I'm getting better and sometimes corrects the structure and pronunciation. I talk about easy stuff, nothing too complicated. It's Ok, I'm happy with the progress, thank you. Leo

This course was recommended online after my CD Roms from Rosetta Stone became totally useless with the disappearance of Adobe Flashplayer. The price is reasonable and the practice is quite good.
