Very helpful. I am part Chinese and I like being competitive. I like how you can move up through the ranks. I want to travel the world so this program can help me speak to others. I am starting the Advanced Learning technique. More

I really do enjoy this course, I love the idea of being able to do it at my own pace. A++++++ I am just about to do my exercise but thought I would stop by and do a review first to show my appreciation and to assist others in making a decision to choose Rocket Languages. More

Very well designed course, it is easier to learn the sounds in Chinese which is the most difficult part about learning the language once you memorize basic vocabulary. Excellent Course, highly recommended. 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...

In my pursuit of trying to study Mandarin, I have tried many, many, many courses, both in-person and online, and never quite found one that helped me stay motivated. In each case, I never felt like I was absorbing anything and would become discouraged really easily... 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...

Nice software... I don't know if this has character writing for Chinese. For those wondering this is better then Rosetta Stone. Hopefully I will stay motivated and learn Chinese like I've always wanted to do! Take the chance I try this out, maybe you will like it 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

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

Couldn't be happier with the Chinese course I recently bought. Only got it a few days ago, but I've sunk hours and hours into it... it's surprisingly engaging and I'm normally not so studious. And a big shout-out to Margaret, the CSR who helped me with an issue earlier... More

Easy to learn and pick up. Navigation and explanations and simple and good to understand, which is great. I like the point system too and how the process of how far you have gotten. Too bad my friends have no interest in other languages, otherwise I would spam this site to them and recommend it non stop to them :) 10/10 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! Rocket Languages gives me the 'Tools' to learn, and my Chinese Students the chance to practice it... More

I used Rocket Languages as a valid help in learning languages. It is incredible how fast you can learn with only 30 minutes a day. I am learning Mandarin, and, believe me, the course is great. Do not pay too much attention to who tells you learning Chinese is impossible, and online courses do not work... More
