I always found it difficult learning a new language at school.
But now I have the motivation because my girlfriend is going to work in Hong Kong and I want to share her experience . So I decided to take on Mandarin . At first I thought I was mad but after absorbing the software i'm taking it like a duck to water!
You can work in your own time , which is great for me as I work late and early shifts at work , so it really fits in with my lifestyle.
Plus the platform on which its based is fun and engaging. I really like the games too!
Thank you Rocket for helping to make a dream come true.

Unbelievable!!! Did I ever know that learning a language could be so fun and interesting. I am my own Master!! Its all entirely up to me how fast and how much I learn. With all the interesting features, who wouldn't look forward to moving to the next level everyday!!!

Rocket languages make it fun to learn. The way the course is interactive makes learning new vocabulary very easy. I listen to the lessons while I am walking or on the subway. It has helped me get the basics for surviving in China. The only improvement I would suggest is that the app is made available offline. In China, the app sometimes will only work with a VPN turned on. I would fully recommend Rocket to anyone wanting to learn a language. It has more than helped me.

Much better than Rosetta Stone.. I just came back from Asia and from what I learned from Rocket. it helped a lot. Plus, the price and ease of usage...unbelievable. If you put in the time and effort, it will pay for itself.

I am lazy to learn a Foreign Language when most of the 'locals' can speak and understand English (like in the Philippines where I have lived since 2001 and 96% speak English).

However working in China as an ESL Teacher, I quickly learned that perhaps 96% can't speak or understand English! Rocket Languages gives me the 'Tools' to learn, and my Chinese Students the chance to practice it. I'm increasing my vocabulary, that I can 'think in Chinese' now!

This reviews Rocket Languages' Chinese Premium and Premium Plus. The program is well organized in its audio and website. Audio lessons use a typical conversation to teach new words and basic grammar lessons. Lin Ping, the teacher for the course, has a good clear Northern Chinese accent and speaks the majority of the time. It is peculiar that she converses with Dave, an Austrailian with a good accent, but not one I'd try to imitate if I was trying to blend in while visiting. This is fixed in the Premium Plus section. There is some English to introduce the subject and context, but the majority of the lesson is repeating words while you can follow a written transcript in Pinyin and I think Simplified characters. Then you practice memorizing by repeating sections of the conversation, hearing and identifying words, and speaking the words in Chinese knowing their equivalent in English. (hard!) The only major complaint is a lack of a translation dictionary to double check if the words you are adding to your vocabulary have the right definition (the audio tapes breeze through definitions only once); when looking up a word you will most often find it used in other lessons/sentences.

This program is awesome as it allows you to adjust to different learning styles and discover which is best for you! Right now I am living in China and this program is very accurate compared to the real thing. I bought this program because of its many styles of teaching but also because of its accountability!

Lin & David make learning Chinese a pleasure. I don't get much time to study but this course makes a very difficult language easier to understand and my wife's family say my pronunciation is very good. Thanks. Alan Barlow

I will be travelling to China in August to study Mandarin and attend an immersion course for 4 weeks. Rocket Chinese has helped me progress so much over the last month as I have committed to a daily routine of 30 minutes, consistent study and I can really notice the improvement in my knowledge and understanding. The great thing about Rocket Chinese is that I can listen and practice the Audio conversations while I'm driving! This will definitely give me a great foundation to work from for when I commence further mandarin studies in China!!
