A fun and easy way to learn. Several years ago I started with Rocket German before a trip to Germany. Although I didn't progress very far with the lessons, what I did learn really helped with important things like ordering food, booking a room, getting directions, etc... More

Before subscribing to Rocket German, I had tried for years, off and on, to learn German. I read primers, readers, phrase books, listened to CDs and even took the first two levels of Rosette Stone, but I never really got much past the basics... More

By the time I finish each lesson, the words are in my head... and are still there for future reviews. I love the variety of ways to learn - audio, written, games, etc. Looking forward to digging in deeper to the grammar... More

Ich lerne gerne. The lessons are fun and Nik and Paul are funny. They really try to make the experience hands-on (so to speak) and enjoyable. I can hardly wait to complete a lesson so I move on to the next one! More

I have tried learning languages years ago with books and tapes and more recently downloading files from Internet (Listening only, No text!) with mixed results. With Rocket Languages I sense that I am making better progress with more retention and importantly I am able to start thinking in German and not need to translate which is vital in achieving fluency...

I love this system and am using it for my third language. I have used many other methods, including Rosetta Stone, Pimsleur and a two week language course in Italy and found the Rocket programs superior in that the grammar is part of the method, which is essential in becoming fluent in a language...

Rocket German is a very addicting (in a good way) course! It is no effort at all to do the lessons. My son, who completed two years of high school German and three years of college German can't believe how fast I've gotten the point of being able to have a conversation with him... More

The audio lessons are interesting and keep your attention unlike other audio programs. The exercises and transcripts are very helpful for reinforcing the German I am learning from the audio clips. I like how you can mark vocabulary words that you still need work on and how you can review them later from the website... More

I have not yet progressed very far into the course, but for as far as I have gone, Rocket compares favorably with Pimsleur courses I have used. I like the available transcripts and computer material. Being able to actually see the words helps a great deal in getting the pronunciation down faster correctly... More

Like anything else, with practice, I see progress. Plus, I enjoy the conversational parts very much - they are not dry and boring like other programs I have used! Each lesson is categorized in a logical way, and as progress is made, previous terms are brought up again, which helps reinforce the vocabulary and usage. More

Rocket German is one part of my tools to learn German. What I like about Rocket German is "throwing" you into the language and having to speak real German in real conversations. I really like the new dashboard, it makes it much easier to follow my progress and have gone back to pickup those areas I missed or was weak in. More
