Rocket French is the best of the many French language teaching programs I have had experience with. I had a minimum amount of French training in high school and college just to meet the language requirement for my chosen field. Language learning at the time consisted of textbook, classroom and language laboratory exercises. For me this was torture as it took away from the time I could devote to the science and mathematics I needed to concentrate on to pursue a career in medicine. I am now retired but I have been involved with teaching students in other fields of education. Three years ago I decided to learn French. As I see it, the availability of computerized language programs of different varieties with voice recognition software has been a tremendous advance in language learning. I began with Rosetta Stone and enjoyed the experience and found it to be very helpful and I am happy that I had that experience. I also spent three weeks in France at an immersion school. I subscribe to Yabla which for a conscientious person can simulate an immersion experience in France. I enrolled in News in Slow French and look forward to their weekly output. Of course I also bought a book on French grammar and studied that.

I have been learning to speak French over a long period of time. I have tried many tapes and CDs. No program has been as effective as Rocket French. I love the interactive audio course. As I go over the materials a second and third time my language skills are improving. Since I purchased the program listening and writing tests have been added and has helped my comprehension of the language. I am happy with this program and I look forward to studying French and hopefully moving on to Spanish and Italian.

For some people, learning languages is as easy as 1, 2, 3. They can visit a foreign speaking country for a week and boom, they absorb most of the basic survival words like "hello, good morning", "my name is", "thank you", and "geez you are so cute, what is your number".

Not me. I am as thick as a brick.

I have tried 3 different language providers before Rocket languages and all 3 do nothing but making my brain burnt.

Rocket languages use elearning method which is very convenient for me. I can set my own pace. Everytime I feel overwhelmed, I slow down a bit, go back to my previous lesson and/or have a day off. They utilise the logic of english language to make sense of french language so it just clicks easily. And have I mentioned Paul & Claire are very funny?

Rocket languages is a very fun way to learn!

ZACHARIA JOHOLA,
I heartily accept the work of the Rocket Language team,because I have gained a rapid and great advancement in the French Language though it 's less than a six-day period since I discovered and started to use this golden chance of learning the language which has been as day-dream for to understand it. Before I got the laptop I currently posses the environment was not friendly to me in learning this Foreign language through the most comprehensive Rocket Languages Program. I absolutely promise to be the permanent member of the site for I find it very helpful to me as a beginner to a new language (French).
I have not yet completed the course, but I solely recommend the Program to anyone else who finds a comprehensive and less time consuming program for self learning.
Living and working in France is My comforting dream. Keep it up Rocket Languages Team, you are the most wanted and helpful tool in self-learning of the Foreign Language.

After many years of working on my French I feel Rocket is where I want to be. What I find especially helpful is the practice in understanding spoken French. I still have a long way to go but the Rocket execises, I feel, have put me on the right road.

Disappointed with not being able to download on android, windows, or apple platforms. This defeats the purpose of my purchase - wanted to listen during work drive. Also app not allowing the voice option. Why browser version only?

Not able to take quiz on android app.

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Mark - The Android and iOS apps have been fully updated, and you can now play the Interactive Audio courses in the background.

Outstanding lessons and customer service. The conversations are what I usually encounter in the airport, and now I'm ready to speak better French and use it more. Customer service was very helpful getting the practice sessions to work on an older iPhone. Highly recommend. Merci.

The very special method which is used by Rocket language is so amazing that not only you won't be tired, but also you will be persuaded to learn more and more each day and that's what makes this program unique.

I'm learning French course by using Rocket language and as an international student who is living in France I can tell that I'm using 100% of the material that I've learned through the course in each day of my staying here from doing some errands to book a whole trip and asking for an advice from a local person.

subscribing to this program was one the best decision that I've made so far, Thanks Rocket Language.

Initially I liked the program. But there are some frustrating elements that could be improved.
1. Too often new nouns are presented without the prefix. To really build vocabulary, we need to know whether a noun is masculine or feminine.
2. Too often expressions are presented only in the casual "tu" form. Yet most of the time we would likely need to use the formal "vous" form. But that is not provided in many of the lessons.
3. Some of the vocabulary in the lessons is not very practical. It would be better if the words chosen for a lesson were those most likely to be used on a daily basis.
4. The program does not save your progress. You have to remember where you left off. When I log in it always takes me back to an early lesson that was completed some time ago.
