This is the third Arabic program I've tried. I was told to learn standard Arabic before the Egyptian dialect, but it is a very hard language and my trip is coming up tooooo quickly. I'm so glad I changed. So many of the words are pronounced differently, yet sentence structure, etc is the same. My Arabic dictionary still comes in handy, my spelling is improving, (slowly), and my Egyptian friends are amazed how much my pronunciation has improved! (Much better than learning from someone from Morocco.) But the way the program itself is set up is awesome. The way the computer shows you exactly what letters you are pronouncing is pure genius! I may never get that Ra, but I used to think the same thing about the Kha, so who knows?? I love it!!
The Arabic course is unique in that it teaches colloquial Arabic which is more likely to be understood by the average person. I personally am using it to increase my vocabulary to supplement my MBA and classical Arabic usage. So overall the course is great and would be 5 star if the mobile app worked regularly. If they can fix that and keep it working regularly I will gladly update my review.
I thought that rocket languages for Arabic was good for what it is. Nothing can substitute actual immersion in the language with live native speakers, but shy of that, rocket languages helps one who has a busy full time schedule like me, to squeeze in a few minutes of Arabic every day here and there. I like the fact that the speakers are native and the grammar is explained explicitly, but I don't like some of the interfaces, and it gets a bit annoying how much chatter there is compared to actual Arabic during the audiotapes. But all in all, I thought it was quite effective and fun.
Rocket Arabic is a great course! It's very user friendly and is one of the few language learning services that offers Egyptian Arabic. It has a very nice variety of topics including letters, numbers, pronunciation, writing, reading, and grammar!
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.
Rocket Languages so far is the best you can find I've tried other options before and I am just hooked to Rocket its easy to understand and with lots of material. I've purchased the french version and I couldn't be happier thats why I'd decided to get the Arabic.
This is the best course you will find. This is a very honest review I'd never review anything but I am just so happy I found Rocket it's worth every penny. I wish they come out with more levels for the Arabic course.
I have started studying Egyptian Arabic with Rocket Arabic only 10 days ago. I have made good progress and I love the interactive audio lessons with very good voice recognition functionality. The modules are scaffolded nicely with lots of opportunities for reviewing and practicing. The topics are presented in a friendly, fun way and even the Arabic grammar does not feel too complicated when introduced at this pace. I am confident that I will be able to speak to locals easily, next time I go to Egypt. Thank you Rocket Languages, keep up the good work!
I just started with Rocket Languages, and I must say, among all the language apps and services, I've never been more satisfied with any program than I have with this one. It's helped me with my learning, and significantly sped up the process. I haven't had to use the Customer support yet, thank god, so I also don't have much to say about it. But seeing as things are going here, I would imagine it is just as good. I would certainly recommend this to anyone trying to learn languages, as this offers a variety of ways to do it, and supplies you with everything you need.
An overall 5 Stars from me, good job Rocket Languages
I trialed the Rocket Arabic module and was impressed enough to purchase the premium package. The series has interesting audio lessons that are supplemented with exercises and pronunciation self-tests. I'm only interested in learning Arabic for travel purposes - I often visit the Middle East - and this works perfectly for that. The series does not include heavy grammar at the beginning but does include the letters and extensive vocabulary. The points goal is helpful to keep me motivated to study a bit of Arabic each day, which is essential for language learning. I also appreciate that it teaches Egyptian Arabic and not the much less useful (for the traveller, at least) Modern Standard Arabic.
My only gripe is that they do not have a Levantine Arabic version, but this is a tiny quibble and not in accordance with what most customers are looking for, so it's understandable.
Since I wanted to learn Arabic, I took a trial version for 6 days and found this course to be satisfactory. Rocket languages gave me productive tools to understand the new language. Now I am hopeful and purchased a full version to take my learning to the next level. Looking forward to achieve some better results with the help of Rocket Languages.
