Rocket Italian — Cincinnati, Ohio , United States
I had never studied Italian before, but after two trips to Italy, I decided I wanted to be able to read and converse in Italian for my next trip. I started knowing essentially zero words, and was concerned about being able to pronounce words correctly. The audio dialogs and additional lessons make it easy to replay a word or phrase and keep practicing until it becomes easy. Then you can check your pronunciation using the.microphone.

Rosetta Stone and several other courses, all picture oriented, were getting me nowhere. I'm not an infant and no longer learn is such an inefficient manner. Rocket is much better. I'm an adult- just tell me what the words mean. Guessing at what pictures are trying to tell me, not to mention deciphering sentence structure and conjugation that way is not fun!
Rocket Italian — Reading , United Kingdom
Having got to the end of my tree in Duolingo, I was looking for something more structured that could take me to the next level. Stumbled across Rocket Languages on the internet and decided to take a chance on the free trial to see what it was like.
Overall impressions so far are very good - the course is much more in depth, and uses real people to deliver the lessons and caters for different learning styles.
Rocket Italian — Nottingham
I have a very busy life style. Working away a lot all over the UK. My mum's side of the family were from Italy. I've had the desire to learn Italian for this reason and also I plan to honeymoon there in 2018. Rocket Italian is great because I can download lessons and then when doing a long drive a can listen to the lesson.
I like that so much of the exercises use audio. Too many language teachers end up teaching how to read a language, but put very little emphasis on speaking and comprehension. I also really like the dictation exercises, mostly because they give me practice in comprehension of spoken Spanish.

Works great, and fun. Only problem is that Hear it Say it stops working after a few lines. Otherwise seems very effective, can work while driving, lunch breaks etc. Before it was always hard to find quiet time to work on languages. Keep working on android!
Rocket Italian — NSW , Australia
I am loving learning the language of my grandmother by this system. She lived with me and my parents in Australia until I was 12 and she occasionally spoke and sang to me in Italian. That was nearly 50 years ago and as a result I spoke Italian like a 2 year old - pointing and naming things with no grammar or modern constructions when I started this course.
Rocket Italian — Richmond, California , United States
I am just in the early Italian lessons but already I have a feel for the language. The ROCKET style is both immersive and explanatory. The lessons are based on real conversations and then verbs and grammar are expanded. The added cultural references are fantastic!
I think the strongest feature of the curriculum lies with the ability to record your own voice and compare it to the lesson speaker. I am able to speak and listen over and over, hearing every little inflection until I get it right.
Rocket Italian — Georgetown , Canada
Would I recommend to a friend? Already did, to all four of my immediate colleagues at work that are considering Spanish, French, Italian and Japanese.
Did Pimslueur when I was trying to learn Lithuanian for my wedding. Great for pronunciation but certainly very limited vocabulary, no grammar instruction, no book and no writing component. Very expensive on top of that. Rocket Italian seems to have all of these bases covered so that I can look forward to a true understanding of how the language works rather than parroting back audio tapes.
Rocket Italian — Spokane
Done very well. Especially for older persons like me who have trouble remembering. Glad to see you point out formal vs informal. It is not just memorizing a script, information provided gives you a understanding of what is being said. Review process at the end of each lesson is very helpful.
