I am currently living in China and can immediately apply the newly learnt material. The best thing about this course is the ability to speak and have it rated afterwards. I feel my pronunciation has already improved and I feel more confident to speak or ask questions... More

Rocket Chinese is truly exceptional in that it engages all your learning faculties. Consequently, as you systematically work through the lessons (the 3 steps: Interactive Audio, Language and Culture, and Writing) your memory is reinforced, thus facilitating proficiency in such a difficult language as Chinese is for the English-speaking learner.

Quick learning, and good implementation of knowledge by ongoing repetitions to train ear and memory. This, paired with the fact that the lessons can be taken anywhere anytime makes it perfect for businessmen usually not having the time to take personalized classes, but still in need to learn a language More

It's immersive and very educational. A good price for good quality lessons. The audio is clear and interactive, which is helpful in learning pronunciation. Lessons are short enough to provide a sense of successful memorization, but long enough to help solidify the knowledge... More

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... More

I have not yet progressed very far into the course, but for as far as I have gone, Rocket compares favorably with Pimsleur courses I have used. I like the available transcripts and computer material. Being able to actually see the words helps a great deal in getting the pronunciation down faster correctly... More

I really like Rocket Language programs. As a visual learner, I need to see the words for the sounds--in Chinese, seeing the Pinyin helps immensely. I also find the tests are just what I need to retain the new phrases... More

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... More

Rocket Chinese is very helpful if you are studying outside China. Constant practice of conversation, listening is much harder if you are not in country. Rocket Chinese helps simulate total immersion. Also the testing tools allow focus on the most difficult, nagging expressions. More

I truly enjoy the kinetic energy of the presentations. The sizing of each lesson is also very appropriate, I have used older Chinese courses and this is heads and shoulders above them all! I will be using this course in Taiwan this summer to hone my language skills!! More

The Rocket Languages courses are by far the best courses I've come across to learn a new language rapidly and with ease. Everything you need to learn your chosen language is right at your finger tips. I've tried various courses, books and podcasts, but nothing comes close to Rocket Languages... More

I was looking around the internet where I can learn Chinese, I saw a lot of sites and tried most of their free trial including Rocket Languages. For most of the other sites, I didn't survive using their free trial for even a day, but for Rocket Languages, I survived up to the end of the free trial and now I'm about to buy my own subscription...

Rocket languages seems quite good. However I like to see as well as hear. Feedback on my accent would always be a must. Try out the freebie and see if that's the way that best suits how you learn. The next bit in the questionnaire asks how satisified I am with the following 5 points (good experience, buy again, price, recommend to friend and customer services) I have not been able to edit the number of stars I give...

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

Rocket Languages is a great way to learn languages because it feels as if I am talking to a person face to face instead of listening to some man named dave and a lady called lin (I think) who are speaking over a microphone which is good thing so xiexie ;) . More
