I have been using Rocket Italian for approximately 2 weeks now, i have used Pimsleur, the problem with Pimsleur is that they don't explain what you are learning, Rocket Italian explains as you go, every session is concise and clear, and the most important thing is that I'm learning... More

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 amount of information here is staggering for a beginner like myself,however I'm lucky for 2 reasons.Firstly,I have been using Memrise for 18 months so many of the words are familiar to me and secondly my Philipinna wife lived in Japan for 25 years and is completely fluent in Japanese so I don't have a problem with the voice playback as I never use it...

I find there is generally too much preamble getting into each dialogue - too much from the English guy especially. Ironically, he seems to be talking as though adressing an ESOl class . However, as a native speaker, I find his delivery and Uk accent quite amateurish... More

The voice recognition works pretty well. It struggles with very short sounds, but overall very good. I've used other programs that ask you to speak the answers, but the pronunciation analysis makes me try much harder to say each response out loud... More

I really like the format on the website. And I really like that it has a mobile app. However I travel a lot and the time I have most available to practice Chinese is when I am on a plane. You can download the MP3 files but I really wish the APP would allow you to cache the sections you are working on so they worked on a plane... More

Learning a language is possible not by only going through books but by actually implementing it in your daily speech and hearing the correct pronunciations. And ROCKET JAPANESE has made it possible!

It's easy to follow through the lessons and there are additional explanation given in the interactive audio to help me understand more on how to apply certain words in another way! The testing session re-enforces my current learning and helps me to remember better and faster! Makes learning fun and so much easier than I first started learning from the internet... More
