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

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 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

The ability to download the interactive audio and listen to it offline is great for making use of my time commuting on the London underground, then practicing with the Hear-It / Say-It / Know-It when I get home in the evening... 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 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

I am just restarting to learn Mandarin using Rocket Chinese because I had been too busy teaching and building new courses at my current school in China. Positive: 1. Listening, Reading (in pinyin - latin script and Simplified - chinese script), Writing (initially in pinyin) and speaking is available from the very first lesson... 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 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

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
