I love Rocket Languages because it takes you step by step in learning any language even though you don't speak it at all. The teachers explain everything so clearly that I didn't need any support in the forums (which is a very helpful resource)... More

Rocket Russian is a very fun, useful, interactive learning tool that keeps me engaged and wanting to come back to increase my points and earn the next badge. The lessons are enjoyable, especially the voice recognition is very useful for the beginners... More

This Program is really well made. I love all the different lesson types. This helps me to learn and memorize. I think the most helpful one is the speaking parts. They are all helpful though. I have had trouble memorizing with other programs, but this helped a lot. More

Makes it easy to stay on track! There is a lot of speaking practice integrated in this program, which uses novel technology to help assess your pronounciation, and you can set it to various levels, which helps a lot! Great way to save vocabulary also! More

It's hard to think how Rocket Chinese could possibly be improved. The content is just amazing, everything from the language itself through to very helpful culture tips as well. The hosts are delightful, easy to understand and a pleasure to learn from... More

Pace of the lessons is extremely slow. There are massive gaps in the audio, even when you only have a few words to say. The male voice on the lessons has an appalling accent, thus giving you incorrect pronunciation from the beginning... More

The price can't be beat! I especially enjoy that I control what and when I want to focus on for my study sessions. The interactive audio sessions actually helps me to think in the target language. I'm having problems with the speech recognition and will likely need to contact tech support; however, the first few hours into the course and I'm enjoying what I received for the price. More

There is no functionality to allow you to quickly click on a word that you don't know to figure out what it means. Instead you have to wait through the painstakingly slow audio to hear someone tell you what it means... More

I've spent years trying to find a language learning program that I can stick with but make real progress on - Rocket Chinese is that program! The price is comparable with a 10 weeks in-person language course - but you get far more material! I love that each piece of information is presented in multiple ways, and there are so many ways to review. More

The record with voice recognition grading really helps to get your pronunciation right, and the playback of your voice really helps you find out why you did get the grade you expected. These tools give a strong incentive to practice speaking, and have helped me to progress faster... More

I find there is generally too much preamble getting into each dialogue - too much from the English guy especially. Ironically, he seems to be talking as though adressing an ESOl class . However, as a native speaker, I find his delivery and Uk accent quite amateurish... More

I really like the format on the website. And I really like that it has a mobile app. However I travel a lot and the time I have most available to practice Chinese is when I am on a plane. You can download the MP3 files but I really wish the APP would allow you to cache the sections you are working on so they worked on a plane... More

Great value for price! I like the browser but was really impressed with the app on IOS. Since I am on the go quite often, it is nice to learn Mandarin and check things off right on my phone. The more exposure to the language the better, and now I don't have to just sit at a computer all day and learn... More

I have studying Mandarin Chinese for about four months. I started with another "highly rated" and very expensive program by a competitor. After two months I could only say hello and goodbye and a lot of phrases which I wasn't sure of their exact meaning and none of them related to any topics I wished to practice at the local Chinese restaurant (you have to look at pictures and decide what is being depicted...

Your program is fine and efficient. Nevertheless the dialogues are a little boring ("Beijing seems to be a big city" , well, who doesn't know it?) and there is a BIG mistake in lesson 5.5 Places worth checking out in Beijing (the quizz) : the Great Wall of China CANNOT be seem from the moon ! Check it if you don't believe me... More

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!
