Just starting to test the waters with Rocket French. Can't really say much yet since it's too early, but I keep noticing that the speech recognition isn't working accurately. My voice is either not getting recognized or if I deliberately mispronounce I get 100%. That's a bit of a downer. Considering the cost of this course, I'd expect it to work without issues.

Works okay, very helpful context, but the part where you speak the words and they judge your pronunciation is super super broken for me, rendering the whole app half-useless. It either can not hear what I'm saying at all, or is way way off base about what I said. I've tried switching devices, switching to an external mic, etc etc but the problem seems to be ROCKETBOOK. So far Duolingo has proven to be better, and much more affordable. I hope they fix the voice part...

So far so good, quite pricy though. And maybe it would be fun with something for visual learners. Overall it is very good but still has potential to improve. I have no experience of the customer service so that one is neither good or bad.
How likely I'm to buy it again depends on if I get a big discount on another language.

Response from Rocket Languages

Thanks so much for your review Daniel. We love to get feedback from our customers on how we can improve the course, so if there is a visual aspect that you think would be helpful, please don't hesitate to contact our customer support team ([email protected]) with your suggestions, and we will pass them on to the relevant teams. All the best with your language learning!

Pros:
+good quality audio and content
+many different exercises to practice
+audio recognition exercises
+daily rank is very motivating

Cons:
-pricing is high due to exchange rate (PLN/USD)
-Mobile app UI (android) is not well designed (too small icons; far away buttons; a lot empty space; hand becomes quickly tiered from jumping from record icon to easy/medium/hard button)
-a little too much English in recordings

Ideas:
-bigger buttons; small mobile app redesign
-access to recording transcript (more than just one sentence at a time)
-accumulation of all flashcards and other exercise into one big place to exercise what I already should know;

Response from Rocket Languages

Thanks so much for your feedback, Kris. We will pass this on to our developer team for their consideration. All the best with your language learning!

I am really enjoying this course so far. I like that you can skip a lesson if it may not pertain to you or your current goal and then come back to it later. I also love being able to listen to the Interactive Audio lessons again later on my phone to reinforce the lesson I did for the day.
One thing that would be better, is if it asked you to write a review at the end of a lesson to not interrupt your learning.

Response from Rocket Languages

Thanks so much for your review, Frank - it sounds like you're getting a lot out of the course. Regarding our 'write a review' request, we will forward your feedback to the IT team for their consideration. All the best with your language learning!

I was previously using another app to learn Spanish. After 145 days, I could understand quite a few words. And form sentences from multiple choices that appeared on the screen. But I had a very difficult time speaking or forming actual sentences. Let alone, have a conversation. After 6 days of using Rocket Spanish, I feel that it is preparing me better for the "Real" world. The other app is more "Game-like." I look forward to my Spanish Time much more with Rocket Spanish.

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!

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!

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!
