Alright, so I have been using Rocket Chinese for about a year now. I was attracted mostly by the price and the amount of features involved. I was not about the drop hundreds of dollars on Rosetta's Stone or Pimsleur, but I did want quality learning. There are hundreds of ways to learn Mandarin for free on the internet. I realize that. But I needed a place that could provide grammatical support, and have comprehensive lessons that taught a higher level of understanding to the language. Here is what I got:
-Good entertaining lessons
-Motivation
-An overall look at the language
-Chinese culture
And here are the things that I have noticed need improvement
-Despite the recent edits to the "Hear it, Speak it" I definitely think that it can be fixed up even more
-The point system can be more comprehensive for example someone that practices every day, reviewing old lessons will never get the same credit as someone who just puts random answers for quizzes, answers BS for blog posts. I know the end goal is to learn the language and these people wont be doing that but you get the idea
-Chinese writing section I think could definitely use some improvements, and a way of testing yourself to learn the characters.

It is helping me learn Chinese. My goal is to move to Taiwan this June. That is one of the main reasons I am doing Chinese today. I also like the challenge. Sometimes it is much easier than others. How can I learn Chinese faster ???

There are many good tools to practice Chinese. I really like the rocket record where you can compare the pronunciation with Chinese speaking people. The only thing that I am missing is that there should be a prepared vocabulary for each chapter.

Easy to learn and pick up. Navigation and explanations and simple and good to understand, which is great. I like the point system too and how the process of how far you have gotten.

Too bad my friends have no interest in other languages, otherwise I would spam this site to them and recommend it non stop to them :) 10/10

When I use Rocket Language I am totally absorbed and unaware of what is going on around me. The dialogue is written as if someone is actually talking to me and dotted with humour that makes me smile and lightens the learning. Thank you Team.

I decided to try and learn Chinese just for the challenge of it.
It is only a few days I started Rocket language method and I am very satisfied. I have already recommended it to all my friends! The small dialogues are very helpful. The phonetic exercises are great to help improve pronunciation. The Practice and level section is also excellent. I only wish there were some more games. Hope that we can soon have it on tablets.

I like the Rocket Chinese Course.
Interestingly, I can only give 5 stars, if I try to click higher than that, it defaults to no stars...
I very much enjoy the energy the instructors have. The level of progress for each lesson is well done. You learn quite a bit with each lesson, and the audio is engaging. But you don't get thrown so far into the deep end that you get frustrated and quit. I is a very good balance between enough old (to prevent frustration) and enough new (to prevent boredom.
I also interacted with the customer service once. It was a very good experience. They took my feedback and incorporated it in the very next update. They also addressed my (user created) problem. They were prompt, and kind, and very helpful.

What I like about Rocket Chinese are:

+Writing part: Makes you understand the strange writing system which the Chinese people use. Video recording on how to write letters makes you visualize how you are going to do this, instead of only knowing the theory.

+Audio lessons: Its like a good conversation. Good mood. Nice personalities. Possible to upload to mobile.

+Design: Simple. Progress is showed at the top and give you a little bit more motivation.

+Culture: Interesting reading throughout the learning. Makes you understand China a little bit more.
