The program--either on desktop or tablet, often does not record my voice, and thus does not record portions of lessons. This is not getting better. Until Rocked Languages can improve its server, I'd advise avoiding the program.

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Tim - We recommend using a headset microphone if you are on desktop. If you are using a tablet then we would recommend using the appropriate Android or iOS app. Please let customer support know if these suggestions don't fix the issue!

Rocket Italian is great! I believe there is one mistake in lesion 5.7 The section heading past perfect tense is actually the present perfect tense. Thus far I am really enjoying this course. It is a great way to learn Italian, the language of all my grandparents whom were born in the area around Torino. My wife and I enjoy Italy. She is impressed that I can use my Italian there.

Compared to the French and Spanish language that I have learned years back, then the Italian language grammar Is easy, to understand and follow. To have my fantastic two teachers to pronounce all the words and the grammar in a way that makes the essence of the words and grammar sinks in, so that I can remember the words and sentences, has given me a fantastic start, and I have therefore decided to by all three levels of Italian at ones.

I like the approach especially since it has been updated and revised. I took about 2 mos off for travel in Italy. The early lessons and practice using through Rocket Italian was very helpful and added a lot of enjoyment to the trip.

Love it, love it, love it. I have done Rossetta Stone and Duolingo. Of course, I did learn a lot with them but I like this method better. You not only learn the language but about the culture. I just hope I have a discount when I want to learn other languages. I know a little of French and want to improve. Doing Italian right now. After French I want to do Portughese.

Unlike Rosetta stone this teaches you things you can actually use and provides actual instruction. There is a good mixture of interactive audio lessons, activities, flash cards, review and more. It's nice to hear a native speaker and a non native (American) one too. I enjoy that this include some cultural pointers too. I can avoid ordering the wrong type of coffee for the wrong time of day! The mobile app seems a bit unresponsive. This has led me to doing most things on my Mac and listening to the audio portion on my iPhone on the way to work. I took a couple of years of Italian in college and this is a good way to learn all I forgot. It's helpful to have an explanation of some of the literal phases. Overall, great product for the money.

Absolute fantastic and very easy to learn. At present I am learning Italian. My partner is Italian, that is added advantage. I would certainly recommend Rocket Italian to my friends.
Please continue so.

I found the first level excellent. Both presenters were extremely clear. I'm on to the intermediate course now though and finding it much tougher. It's the same female presenter and she's excellent, but the male presenter in this course is really difficult to understand, pronouncing words considerably differently from the original. They also leave way too little time to repeat the phrases in this one on the first attempt. The second seems to be ok. I've timed the first and in a lot of cases they leave less time than it took for them to say it, so hopeless for me as a beginner! A bit pricey, but overall it seems to be working.

Wonderful woman Italian speaker. Most beautiful Roman Italian. But totally exasperating waste of time as the American goes on and on and on with useless chit chat. I don't have that time to waste and have given up on this program

Hi Richard - Did you notice the Language & Culture lessons? They have thousands of Italian words and phrases that don't have the "chit-chat". In saying that many people do find the chit-chat entertaining.

I love this program so far! The courses are so well designed, inspiring and interesting. They are much better than the 2 other courses I have tried. It builds confidence because you start speaking and understanding right away. I have already told quite a few people about it! I liked the Premium program in just the first few lessons that I bought the entire The Works program.
