I love the voice recognition, which allows my pronunciation to progress quickly! The videos demonstrating how to write out the characters have also been immensely helpful, I would definitely recommend this.

Just started to check out the Arabic Course. I am a professional translator and teacher who just attended an 50 hours Egyptian Course at my school and I must admit, this course is a great support to any regular classroom course since it gives you a chance to practice live language at home, highly recommended!

I listen to the downloadable conversations when I am cleaning, working out, and every time I have a break... I just saved them to my phone and listen to those instead of music! I love the different activities! I have learned so much already! thank you! I wish the font of the Arabic words was larger so I could better learn how to put the letters together to form words. Thank you for a great learning platform!

I signed up a while ago but have been using it intensively for the last week - and I am really enjoying it! If you make use of all the different ways of testing yourself - recording, role playing, writing etc. - then you can make real progress quickly.

After only 3 months of study I was able to read, write, and speak enough Arabic to get me through any casual encounter.

It was fun to listen to Arabic music and understand the lyrics! Rocket Arabic is a better way to learn and I was more successful with this program than the class I took at university.

This is an awesome method to refresh my memory of the Egyptian dialect, and to keep my pronunciation up. I'm impressed by the level of detail and the ability to continuously correct yourself (and hear it in playback!) in order to pronounce words correctly. This is a very effective programme for learning Arabic, and specifically, the Egyptian dialect. I recommend it!

So far this is an amazing course. This is a great way to learn Egyptian Arabic. The quality is very good as well as being easy to use. I would highly recommend this to my friend. Actually, my friend is joining now. I really am hoping that it will be a successful road to Arabic.

Listening to the audio lessons is very boring. You hear someone saying something in Arabic, and then they tell you what it is in english with a little bit of filler and sometimes a lame joke. There's too much english speaking in between the arabic, and after listening to it I don't recall anything from it. I then started doing some of the other activities and they're all very basic. This is much less advanced than Rosetta Stone. Rosetta Stone doesn't choose the most useful phrases to teach you when you start off, but at least it reinforces what you are learning in an easy way to pick up the language without a lot of filler talk in the language you already speak (english in my case). It's hard to motivate myself to listen to more of these Rocket Arabic lessons because they are so boring.

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Robert - We have added in a ton more standalone words and phrases that can be used with voice recognition. As well as that we have revamped the Language & Culture lessons.

This is an excellent program, in my opinion better than the comparable Pimsleur product, because it makes an attempt to explain the grammar. The dialogues are well spoken and practical. The main shortcoming is that there is no follow-up program. We need to have at least a Rocket Arabic 2 and preferably a 3 as well. Otherwise, there is a bit of a feeling of being abandoned at the start of the journey.
