Well, the course is OK, working with the microphone helps. I am very happy with it. I am not happy and I have to say I am disappointed with the customer service. I have asked 3 times for the invoice for paid amount, nothing happened, no response... More

Indeed it is a very good French Language program. But, do really expect people to believe so called " discounts/Coupon Applied!! , Early Bird Discount, Save Hundreds!!" and pay all that money for a language program!!

I am finding the program difficult to use. I cannot access the written or quiz sections. It is also a problem trying to access the subsequent module. I wish I had purchased only Level 1. The opportunity to listen and have my pronunciation corrected is appreciated but I would like to be able to access the rest of the module segments. More

I can't. you won't let the honest responses be submitted. there is nothing awesome about your program. Neither, do you respond in a timely manner to concerns. So if you want honest then let them be submitted More

I have used Rosetta Stone and Berlitz in the past to become comfortable with Italian and German before trips. I found both of those much easier than Rocket. The English accent of the narrator makes it hard to follow, and the pace is very slow, which leads me to get distracted mid-lesson. More

The grading system is all over the place. They have a colour coded system that is meant to reflect proficiency but it patently doesn't correspond with any of the lessons. I completed all the modules available, everything was correct but the colour coded system gave me 1 green tick and 4 yellow symbols... More

Overall a good course - perhaps a few too many bells and whistles. In the French course the instructor needs to speak MUCH more slowly and enunciate more clearly. Speaking too fast, especially in the early stages, does NOT provide the student with proper pronunciation... More

So far RL is okay. The audios are entertaining, but a tad slow and I wished that they were a bit less English-heavy as it really breaks my French-thinking mindset. Any technical issues (and there are quite a few given the nature of the voice recognition software) that are reported fall onto deaf ears... More

Good for those who like to control the content of their learning rather than going in an order dictated to them. I like the email reminders to encourage return to learning. Clicking on phrases to hear the pronunciation is also very helpful, as is playing the games to test knowledge. More

On the plus side: • I like the way grammatical rules are discussed in understandable, laymans’ terms • It’s easy to learn/revise words and phrases • It’s easy to develop your listening skills to understand what people are saying and its easy to develop skills in identifying what to say But there is room for improvement: • Speech recognition needs improvement o Gives some poor pronunciation 100%, but doesn’t recognise closer attempts o When sentences are long it often cuts you off o Often (every session) crashes for no reason and you have to log in again • Its easy to put all your effort into reading and writing – rather than developing listening and speaking skills More

There's a myriad of good resources for language learning, and the audio helps a lot with pronunciation. Rocket Languages has great tools for language learning, without a doubt. The cultural immersion components are a fun way to learn about culture as well, because that is vital to learning a language as well. More
