Learning another language is a daunting task no matter how it is approached; however, Rocket Languages has made the process much less difficult thanks to their easy to use software. The best aspect of this program is how it aids in making the material interesting through a variety of exercises and techniques. Dedication and persistence are the only ways to truly absorb a language to any useful extent, and Rocket Languages has made this easier to achieve. I've personally used Rocket German and while it hasn't been my sole source of material in my quest for fluency, it is certainly the most flexible and adaptive of them. The program is solid and shouldn't be a challenge for anyone to use, even those who aren't technologically savvy. Luckily, there are several ways to access guides to the program through video tours and text. Support has been responsive in the few times I have needed it, which is much appreciated. I'd have to say that this program is one of the few out there that is worth the purchase price, and then some.

I've been around the language learning game for about 10 years now. (Programs, methods, etc. I have 1000s of books in 20+ languages) At first, as with any program, I'm skeptical. Rocket Languages is fantastic, to say the least. It gets you speaking, using real world situations and phrases that bring your conversational fluency up very quickly. The mobile app is awesome, I use it at work and at the airport/ while traveling. I wish there was some sort of package deal because I see myself buying them all. I recommend this program to all my friends that want to learn a language.

Really the only complaint I have is that the 3 levels isn't offered in every language, and that I live behind my computer because this stuff is addicting :D

Rocket, if you see this is there a package deal for everything? :D

I am just completing the 2nd module of level 2 German. I did the beginners Rosetta beginners course and that has got me to the right level for Rocket level 2. I like the Rocket approach which I think works better than Rosetta would when things get a little more complicated as the Rosetta method is done without a single word of English in the course which can make it hard to work out what is going on if a simple picture isn’t enough.

The material covered looks appropriate for someone wanting to go and live in Germany so it has stuff about opening a bank account and renting a flat, but it would also be good for a tourist who wants to really experience Germany.

Customer service has been helpful if a little slow once I cottoned on to the fact that it is best to contact them via Help on the main site rather than help from the German dashboard help. But I have had very few problems so far.

I have just returned to Rocket German after a break of a few months and what a change for the better. As far as I can tell everything in both the Android app and the Windows version now functions flawlessly. I can take advantage of all the features and learning German with Rocket Languages has become a pleasure again. Rocket German is definitely my language learning programme of choice.
It really works too. I am currently visting Germany and can understand most of what is said. More surprisingly Germans even seem to understand me, which has not always been the case in the past. In fact I am so pleased that I am seriously considering trying the French version to see if it will help me brush up my very rusty French.

Great language learning program. I've been using it to learn German and I have made more progress then I ever did with Pimsleur, Fluenz and Rosetta Stone. The lessons are challenging and the recordings are interesting. If I was ever going to learn another language would definitely start with Rocket.

A great start to learning the German language. The interactive lessons are so clear. Makes me want to challenge and improve my German. I am very happy with my everyday lessons and repeating it when I need to. Thanks to all involved.

I find this an excellent in depth course and I am using it as my joint main study course with ProSpanish and Lightspeed Spanish. I have the best of both worlds: Latin American and Castilian Spanish. My only regret is that my study time is reduced with my wide net of study materials. Compounded by my studies in Rocket German simultaneously. I particularly enjoy the facility of being able to playback phrases and sentences that enable me to enhance my pronunciation. My studies are becoming more centred around this tool. With all three levels to cover in my two courses with Rocket I look forward to a continuing stimulating and colourful experience.

I've tried books, CDs and tapes. Rocket German is the easiest, fastest, most economical and fun! Once you get started the enthusiasm begins. Emails from Rocket German are very encouraging also! Don't waste your time or money on anything else. Rocket Languages is the by far the best language course you can use and by far the cheapest! I'm going to Germany next year and am very confident that I'll be speaking like the natives! I'm also blessed to have German friends here that I can practice with. They tell me "Du sprichst gut Deutsch!" Vielen Dank Rocket Languages!

I've looked at so many German courses but I just cant find another that provides the variety of tasks with various levels of difficulty and entertainment to keep the students attention. It provides continuous entertainment and motivation.
It's never a chore to get back to study, it's a real buzz.
