I wish there were a chart showing a picture or a drawing of badges. I get new badges fairly often. It is announce only once. I really have no idea what my status is!
It is not clear how thge stars work. Are whit stars good?

If you are looking to learn a language. I recommend giving rocket languages a try.

Pros:

Audio focused

forces you to listen to every new term/phrase

forces you to speak new terms/phrases and lets you hear back your voice back to compare

Also grades your speech on chrome automatically

lets you rate yourself and then you go back and review what you thought was okay or hard

I got it for ~$180 and get permanent access for about 230 hours of content

Cons:

No clear function for long term spaced repetition

Not enough spontaneity like writings essays or responding words organized in a new way(thats not already pre-planned)

You only cover everything in the ~20 minute audio lesson

No visual references if you care about that

You might lose your voice

Not gamified but I'm having fun

I think you need to use Anki, but its does everything better than doulingo or memrise when it comes to listening and speaking. While also providing a clear path compared to just venturing on yourself. Doulingo is better for grammar and conjugations, but you are at a much faster pace, its less repetitive, and you just can't tune out. Its not good for children or trying to get some else to learn. Ie. you need to participate and have a desire to learn.

Response from Rocket Languages

Hi Brooke, thank you for your extensive feedback. It's great to hear that you recommend Rocket Languages and that our audio features are supporting your learning. Regarding spaced repetition, we actually already apply this learning strategy to our reinforcement activities, including "Flashcards," "Hear it! Say it!," etc. Additionally, when you purchase a course, you get lifetime access to it and can repeat the lessons as many times as you feel is necessary. We greatly appreciate your feedback and have passed your suggestions on to our Product Development team. We wish you all the best with your French language-learning journey!

There seems to be lots of errors in the program, i.e., correct answer given (as shown) but registers as an error. Also the software does not always register/hear the words spoken.

Great product; an overall fantastic way to learn/practice a language. However, the narrator's pronunciation in the Rocket French lessons (level 2) is comically bad at best and cringe-worthy at worst. A great example of what NOT to say. For context of my experience, I recently finished Pimsleur's 5 levels of French which is strictly focused on speaking and listening. Pimsleur is better in that regard, however, I don't recommend buying two services like I did. Rocket French seems to take you closer to fluency. I'm sure you can get everything you need from Rocket Languages. Salut !

Response from Rocket Languages

Thank you for your review. We are so glad to hear that you are enjoying Rocket French and that it's helping you reach your French fluency. We will make sure to pass your feedback regarding the narrator to the French team. We wish you all the best in your journey to French fluency!

I have tried every, and I mean EVERY language learning platform to date. Each and every one had their ups and downs, but I found the program that had the least amount of 'downs' was Rocket by far. My only real complaints are that the platform is a bit outdated feeling and glitchy, and it also costs more than seemingly any other learning service. It also can be redundant and boring at times, which is a factor in many other platforms, too. All the same, I feel Rocket is the most accurate and realistic over any other program out there. It is concise, explanatory, and has a good mix of material and usage. I feel I am finally learning Spanish the correct way, as I would in school, without having to actually be in a classroom or pay thousands of dollars. I really recommend Rocket to anyone learning a language. I am so glad I caved and paid for it and don't regret it one bit. I can't wait to see how far I come with it!

Response from Rocket Languages

We hope that this doesn't keep the program feeling outdated. It's great to hear that you are enjoying the course enough to recommend it. We wish you all the best with your Spanish journey!

at first i was skeptical because of the high price but i am very satisfied with my experience. the dialogue is a bit too cringy at times but overall the exercises is very good i had fun learning new words and phrases using the microphone voice detection and the different quizzes after the audio lesson i recommend the program and will likely try to learn other languages on this site.

Response from Rocket Languages

Thank you for your review. It's so great to hear how much you are enjoying the course. Our Japanese lessons are currently being rewritten so hopefully you will find this new dialogue more enjoyable. All the best!

I like the fact that you can record your voice. This way you know how you sound to other
French speakers.

Response from Rocket Languages

We're so glad to hear that you are enjoying our voice recognition software. We're certain that it is helping you perfect your French pronunciation. We wish you all the best with the rest of the course!

So this is my third attempt (from different angles) at Spanish. I tried first a podcast (not enough repetition, nothing to read, no motivation to practice, no native speakers), I have been at an in person course (highly motivating, but all at the same pace), and now this.
I like a lot the native speakers, the speed of speech, and the repetition in various learning modes. The voice recognition works better than babble (which I briefly tried as well) but still stumbles sometimes. Good thing - rocket does not make this an issue, I can just progress over it.
I much appreciated the possibility first to try whether this format motivates me - before paying. As a German learner, I am ok with the strong US focus (likely the largest market): I'd love if you considered that there are learners with a different language background and learning experience as well. Like comparing Spanish with French or German.

Response from Rocket Languages

We're glad to hear that Rocket Spanish is a useful tool for you to learn the language. We thank you for your feedback and understand that different backgrounds can affect the way to learn a language. We have passed this on to the team for their consideration. We wish you all the best with Rocket Spanish!

For the price, this course is what you'd expect. It's easy to navigate through the website and the accessibility/readability is very good.
As someone taking this ASL course to refresh previous knowledge I had learned, I found it a bit hard to follow at times. I do wish the multiple choice translation quizzes involved new terms/phrases to translate, rather than the exact same videos used in the lesson module. It would be better for actual comprehension and translation practice, rather than memorizing what we just read on a previous screen.

Response from Rocket Languages

We are so happy to hear that you are enjoying the Rocket Sign Language course and finding the website user friendly. We will make sure to pass your feedback about the quizzes on to the Sign Language team. We wish you all the best with you signing!

It is very good over all, I do not like that the system seems to have trouble picking up one syllable words, but besides that I am enjoying the program very much!
