I'm impressed by Rocket Languages: I'm learning much more than I thought was possible online and having a good deal of fun. It's pedagogically-savvy (more so than other language-learning products) because it uses a variety of learning methods... More

I first started my Italian lessons using Rosetta Stone. After spending almost $300 on the complete Italian course, I advanced pretty quickly and then just gave up after completing a few levels. It was a chore and not fun... More

Since starting the Rocket Italian course in January I have found it to be very educational, easy to use and especially practical since you can study at your own pace and schedule. It is very flexible but, at the same time, it remains a challenge which I find to be one of the best features... More

I have been trying to learn Italian for a long time because my husband's family is from Italy and speak Italian. I have purchased books, flashcards, CD's, and other programs but nothing seems to work. Rocket Italian is a fun, interactive learning tool that keeps me engaged and wanting to come back to increase my points and earn the next badge... More

This software is absolutely amazing and it has blown me away. I have always wanted to learn a third language and being into a lot of Italian culture and music and after doing different types of reading and solo studying i thought I would give this a try and it is truly buonissima! More

Hello. I was born in the United States so my first language is English. Currently I’m extremely fluent in Spanish and Italian. I’ll elaborate on that later. I retired in 2008. In December of 2009 it was decided to purchase Rocket Spanish for myself as a Christmas present... More

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! More

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... More

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... More

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.

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.

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. More

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... More

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. More
