Works great, and fun. Only problem is that Hear it Say it stops working after a few lines. Otherwise seems very effective, can work while driving, lunch breaks etc. Before it was always hard to find quiet time to work on languages. Keep working on android!

Great course and I have learnt a great deal. My only negative comment is that the course so far (nearly finished level 1) does not give enough teaching on putting the language together, rather it teaches phrases. I am trying to learn the language as I now live in Spain and trying to learn the language.

This could easily be a 5 star program, but there are enough poor choices by the designers that make it less valueable or frustrating to use that I am being generous to give this 3 stars. The bottom line is that it works, and it did better for me than when I used Rosetta Stone to learn another language.

I have been using this program for 10 months and have had 3 visits to Germany during this time related to work. This is where I think the program isn't good:
1. This program stresses in the informal ways of addressing people. Germans, especially in business, use the formal case (Sie not Du).
2. The program doesn't teach any language rules, rather just provides example after example such as how to conjugate a verb.
3. THe most frustrating part is that the program tries to inculcate easy words (Ja, Nein), and sometimes not useful words like Wunderbar constantly, but doesn't stress words that are important to know such as to want, to like, to take, to need. If someone can't get Ja and Nein correct after the third lesson, then they need to quit.

I love that the program is available to me for a lifetime. I haven't explored the support forums much but when I have they were very helpful and quick to respond. I am really impressed with this program, and after studying Level 1 and half of Level 2 I took a trip to Quebec and was able to communicate pretty well.

I'm happy that I can continue to study according to my own schedule and when I am ready to study another language, I will definitely use Rocket.

I absolutely love Rocket Languages, or in my case Rocket Japanese! I’ve had an account since 2011 and I just love the way it enables you to actively practice speech even if you don’t have a person to practice with. Since learning Japanese to me is a hobby, it is something that gets put on hold more often than not, however whenever I want to get back into it I start with listening to Rocket Japanese audio lessons. It’s puts me right back in the action of the language, something that would be neither as easy nor as fun if I were just using a book. I do combine the Rocket course with a book for better grammar and more hands-on practice in addition to a Kanji book, as I prefer more exercises, but it would not go as smoothly without your lessons, which are enjoyable even after the so-manieth repeat. just want to add that I appreciate all the upgrades that you do :)

I like the audio and the repetition. I want to be able to hear and understand Spanish, not just read it. That is true of most people that learn a second language. Rocket Spanish puts more emphasis on listening and speaking than Rosetta Stone. The points system is also great because it encourages you to do more each day to earn more points.

I liked the rocket learning German course quite a lot, the several types of ways it helps you learn, either through writing questions or having you verbally repeat it back to a microphone. This all contributed to high rates of retention of the words for myself.

Well organized and easy to follow. Problems with microphone seemed to cause program to loose it's place in quiz. Once I learn the navigation plan it should be easier for me. I keep backing up and learning how to move forward. It has been a while since I used the system and the changes were a bit difficult to follow.

I like the way the lessons are structured and how they progress. It is also helpful to compare my pronunciation with the voice on the site.
I am a slow learner and have a problem hearing the words....by the time a sentence is finished, I may only be on the 3rd word!!! So pacing is very important for me.

Rocket language is amazing. I love the program it's very helpful for people who know a little or no English. I've learned a lot of new words and so far I love this program. It's very easy to understand.
