As a complete beginner for the Chinese language I struggle a little on learning some of the "longer" sentence lessons. I really like Rocket chinese but I listen to Yoyos' Utube when it comes to pronunciation... 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

There are some assumptions made when talking about time and date (like understanding how to count first could help). It's great to force us into speaking the language a lot. I like how the conversations get longer and one new word is added... More

Really impressed with the software. Am still daunted at trying to learn very basic mandarin, but it's a question of "how do eat and elephant: a bit at a time" and Rocket will provide the tools to do that. 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

So far I'm happy with the experience. The instruction is thoughtful, and there are many different ways to review and practice the material. The interface is a little clunky and could use updating, but the content and quality is very good. More

I usually have a difficult time with most language learning methods (like a certain one that rhymes with "Bobetta Fone"!), but Rocket's method fits my learning style perfectly! As a foreign language teacher, I highly recommend it! More

The learning format is presented well, the only complaint is the price, which is a bit high. The voice recognition is done well however it has issues recognizing the English form of the names such as Dave some times. More

Pros: - Good overall structure - Gamified - Lots of content - Lifetime access Cons: - Grammar lessons should be more in-depth. - Writing section should be taken more seriously instead of the "it's almost impossible for you to learn this so here's some easy random stuff"... 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

Rocket Languages is a program designed for beginners to easily comprehend how to pronounce the words. You might have to run through the lesson a couple of times though, but that's to be expected from any form of learning. 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

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
