I love Rocket Languages because it takes you step by step in learning any language even though you don't speak it at all. The teachers explain everything so clearly that I didn't need any support in the forums (which is a very helpful resource). I recommend Rocket Languages without any doubt.

I have been studying Italian since 2010. Rocket Italian has been my primary learning vehicle although I have dabbled with others. Even with Rocket Italian, I suffer from 2 things everyone else struggles with: 1. Not having a person (s) with whom I can carry on a conversation and 2.I have a real job that takes up a lot of time. I have all 3 products, levels I, II and III and early on I raced through each lesson and did the multiple test questions at the end then went on. Then as time went on, I went back and listened to each lesson a 2nd and 3rd and 4th time and did all the tests. Hear it Say it, Write it and Know it. When I started doing those faithfully, my learning really took off. Another thing that has helped me recognize words is a website you can go to called Slow News in Italian. You can google it. It’s the days news slowly, in Italian and the translation is there if you struggle. It really helps pick up conversation. I offer these ideas because I just read several of the posts people have made and I see so many of us with the same issues. Buon imparando!

So far, so good. I have completed the five levels of Rosetta Stone and don't feel confidant at all about my proficiency. I'm hoping this course gets me to the level I want. My wife and I are going to Italy in October for vacation.

I bought Rocket Languages to learn Italian. I have found it an excellent resource especially with the microphone and pronunciation rating. With my Aussie accent the program makes me more aware of the way I need to speak for a 100% score on my speech.

The program is extensive and now that I am back from my Italian Holiday I look forward to learning more ready for next years trip. I love ❤️

I've been struggling to find the time to learn Italian for ages, then with a trip planned, I needed to learn it faster. Rocket Italian has been great for just that; my conversational Italian has improved enormously and with the culture and explanation sections i now understand how the language works much better!

Before our last trip to Italy we purchased Rosetta Stone, lost interest after about a month and didn't learn as much as we had hoped. We are going back this year, so I decided to try another program. Someone suggested Pimsleur, so I got a trial edition and quickly realized I would pretty much wind up illiterate but be able to speak some Italian. This may be all some people are looking for which is fine, but I wanted to be able to read and write also.

After Googling Italian Language I found Rocket Italian, the reviews were great so I tried it. Rocket Italian has the best overall lessons that I've seen. They start out easy so you have some early success, then get progressively longer and harder. You can repeat as much as you'd like depending on how anal you are at getting everything right (that would be me) or move forward as fast as you want. I have a long commute each day, so I downloaded all the lessons to my Ipod and listen to them on my way to and from work.

I subscribed to the RAI channel as a means keeping track of progress. At first it seemed as though native Italians speak so fast I couldn't tell when one word ended and the next started, they appeared just be making noises, lol.

I am almost 75 years old and it's a long time since I did any study, but I'm finding this programme stimulating and user friendly. It is a good balance between the written and spoken word and combining it with little cultural snippets makes it more interesting and brings some reality into the learning. I would recommend it to anyone at any level.

Before starting with Rocket, I had done another software-based course, which was a good foundation from the point of view of grammar, etc. I had got as far as I could with that and Rocket has proved to be the best way for me to continue and expand my knowledge of Italian. I especially like having the facility of recording my own voice to compare with the proper pronunciation; also having the app on my phone is very useful, especially when I am on the train. I have recommended it to other people, and would continue to do so.

I researched several language courses and decided on Rocket Languages. I tried the trial offer and the price was very reasonable, so I purchased all three levels. I must say that I have truly enjoyed my first two months of Rocket Italian.

The program keeps me motivated which I believe is very important. If I ever try to learn another language I would definitely buy Rocket Language and I would highly recommend it to friends.
