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

This is excellent because Rocket records your pronunciation, which as far as I know, isn't possible on any other program. Also Dave is an encouraging mentor. This is just so hard for an old guy like me, his encouragement is helpful. More

A great online tool to teach you how to get the nuances down of the Mandarin language. Topics covered are relevant and assist in everyday conversation. Also, cannot beat the price versus the competition. More

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'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

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...

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

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...

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

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

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
