It's so fun and I enjoy learning from the app. Thx you so much now I am trying to become a foreign exchange student in china. It mean a lot to me that I can now feel more confident to travel outside the US and not feel like an outsider cause I don't know what your saying!

I have been looking for a language learning software that provides everything I need in one place. This program does that! Another awesome fact is I can bring the lessons with me either online or offline. I love the product so far and will buy it for other languages!

I like this because know I can watch a Chinese drama and not having to worry about it having English subtitles. I also like the Korean rocket Korea, I would recommend this to a friend if I had one who was interested in Korean or Chinese.

In high school I took Japanese, in college Russian and Chinese, but that was a long time ago. I needed a refresher. I tried other companies' courses, but especially for Mandarin, Rocket is by far the best. Its competitors either go too fast, go too slow, or are simply inadequate. Rocket courses have just the right balance between depth and ease of learning. They also provide plenty of extra learning tools that I'm still exploring, such as flash cards.

After buying the Mandarin course and working with it for a couple of days, I was so impressed that I bought both the Japanese and Russian courses to do after my Mandarin review.

I gave four instead of five stars to "buy again" only because Rocket doesn't currently offer anything else I need. If the company added levels to Russian and Chinese, or offered a Modern Hebrew course, I'd buy those.

I'm currently using Rocket Languages to learn more Chinese. I live in China right now and what I really enjoy about these lessons is that they are immediately applicable. I studied for 30 minutes yesterday and immediately had new vocabulary to use with my Chinese friends. I'm feeling quite positive about this language course.

I am exploring rocket chinese, I miss some examples of practice diffent conversation situations and also the quiz is static, when you repeat the quiz is very easy to answer. The rocket review is very good, but should be also dinamic. Anyway I try many chinese courses and this one is the one that I feel more confortable for the moment.

I like the coverage in Rocket Chinese III in terms of vocabulary and grammar. The conversations between Lin and Tao are sometimes a little corny, but mostly cover relevant and useful situations. I wish there was more connectivity across lessons. Much of the vocabulary introduced in one lesson will never appear again; it would aid learning if more words were repeated over time. On the other hand, occasionally a word that has been introduced before will be introduced again as if it's brand new. I also wish the course would more often ask me to construct sentences based on what I've already learned, rather than simply repeat a sentence that I have just heard.

So far I have thoroughly enjoyed rocket chinese.
It has shown me that learning an entirely new language from scratch is possible in a very fun way, all you need is some dedication and practice.
I already feel comfortable with my pronunciation due to the recording function rocket chinese has.
Can't wait to see how much my chinese will improve in the next few months.

I have just returned from my first-ever trip to China. For 6 months prior to my trip, the Rocket Chinese course helped me learn basic conversational skills that resulted in many compliments from tour guides, drivers, flight attendants, hotel personnel and other native speakers. I am inspired to continue my studies and return to China someday with a higher command of the language. Rocket Chinese offers very effective tools to achieve this.

At the begining i was impressed by the course, especially in the "intercative audio lessons" but in my opinion the grammar section "language and cultural lesson" it is a mess, sometimes very complicated without a clear path. It is weird and does not make really sense, there are not enough explanation concerning the rules and new words.
About the writing section i can say it is ok.
It feel like the chinese course is a
