Rocket languages really gave me the tools to succeed with my new language. It brought me to a level where I was finally comfortable speaking with native speakers and I was able to take off on my own after that. I highly recommend Rocket Languages to all my friends trying to learn a new language. Learning with this system felt practically effortless.

Being married to a German, and working for a German company, I have the pleasure of traveling to Germany for 2 weeks (or more) every year. For years, I tried to learn enough German to not embarrass myself while visiting.

After trying to teach myself with free online websites, I decided I wanted to learn bad enough to spend some money on a quality product, so I tried Rosetta Stone. Man, I kick myself every day for wasting my money on that crap. There are no rules, and nothing is ever explained, so I found myself more confused and frustrated than ever. Admittedly, I learned a few words and phrases, but never enough to confidently put together a real conversation. I mean, how often do you say "The boy runs" or "The man sleeps" in everyday conversation? I finished the whole first section, and could not hold an everyday conversation with my wife.

Next, I tried the Pimsleur Approach. This was 100 times more useful than Rosetta Stone (but still on the pricey side). However, since it's all audio, you don't get to see the words and phrases that you're learning and, to me, that is helpful. Also, the whole first lesson is basically learning phrases for business travel.

I have just finished my Free Trial. During this period, I also tried several other competitor free trials, and used all of the comparing the similarities and differences.
*Rosetta Stone was easily dismissed as I did not think they did well with phrase translations, but only focused on the single word.
* There were a couple others, that were just too expensive, so that was an easy "No".
* Germanpod101 was very similar to RocketGerman, but did not have the progress dashboard, and quite frankly, they had more unnecessary humor and comments in some of their dialogs that were not relative to the language learning.
* Rocket German was more geared to the learner. They keep encouraging routine practice, and the dashboard monitors your progress. Breaking down words into exact pronunciation has really helped me, and I only had the free trial !!!
In summary, Rocket German, in my opinion was the best language course for me at the best price. I would definitely recommend to a friend.
Special Thanks to Margaret G. at Rocket German Customer Support for answering all my questions and really REALLY helping me out :-)

I had some knowledge of German before I started but this has improved my German a lot . Have been to Germany and Austria a few times since I started and my wife was amazed when we went for a meal and I conducted the ordering of the meal including a discussion on what wines they could recommend in German.

Rocket Languages is a wonderful interactive online tool to study and practice a new language. It offer a large variety of exercises to improve in writing, listening and speaking. The exercises are with increasing difficulty, so that anybody. There is space also for the grammar of the language. However, the main focus is on minimizing the time needed to start and being able to use a language. It's definitely a modern and funny approach to language-learning!

I bought this program a few years ago and sadly only used it here and there. Recently I have revisited Rocket Languages and I have to say its great! After taking formal language classes and continuing to self-study, this has been a great tool. I love all of the different "Write It", "Speak It", etc parts and especially the dialogue repetitions that increase in difficulty. I like reaching my daily goal. Really easy to use and helpful. I will certainly recommend it to others! Thanks Rocket Languages!

Rocket Languages has been great, I took the first level and completed it in 5 months, travelling right after to Germany. Obviously, I was not able to discuss Goethe in German, but I was proud to be able to read and understand signs, ask for directions, prices, etc... and understand the answers in German. Currently I am starting the 2nd level, which I got at a great deal, with a 60% blackfriday discount.

Rocket languages is fantastic!!! Probably the best language course I have embarked on. I have just come back from a holiday in Italy (Rome and a day trip to Naples) and whilst there won three compliments on my (still not perfect) Italian from the locals. This has given me the confidence to work through the course and then take it to the next level.

So far, I am having so much fun learning German! The hosts are entertaining and I have already started speaking with my mother who is a native German speaker. I am learning to help her keep up with her German as it has slipped since my Oma passed over ten years ago. My only regret is not doing this sooner! The lessons are informative and practical. I look forward to my lessons. German will not be the only language I will learn using Rocket Languages.
