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... More

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... 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 love that I can come back to this any time I want with no time pressure to finish the course. A valuable tool to add to my self guided learning of Mandarin. The audio is so useful, like having my own teacher 24/7. 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

Rocket languages allows me to learn at a comfortable pace. It is challenging and informative. It is good because it allows me to replay phrases over and over separately so I can get the pronunciation right. More

Overall this program is excellent. The lessons make sense and the progression seems natural. The only major problem with the course is the voice recognition. It's terrible. Obviously if I was a great speaker of Mandarin I wouldn't need this program, but even when I'm really close to the right pronunciation, it doesn't register it as correct... 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

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
