Just coming up on ten days using Rocket Language, and the flexibility and ease of use have allowed me to develop good habits so far. The course is well organized, and varied, which helps with avoiding boredom, particularly during the necessary repetition of early stage practice... More

I'd like to start with a statement, that this is a very subjective opinion. I have been active user of Rocket Italian for some 4 months. At the same time I was (also very actively) using another programs, like Duolinguo, Memrise, RosettaStone and various on-line Italian podcasts and learning programs "on the fly", both on PC and on a mobile devices (mainly smartphone) - News in Slow Italian, Learn Italian etc...

Just completed Duolingo - learned a lot of vocabulary and got a crash course in grammar. However, I'm completely at a loss when attempting to make conversation. I can tell immediately that this course is the right next step after Duolingo. More

I started learning italian last year with duolingo, and found it pretty good especially as it's free. But it wasn't helping me much decoding real spoken italian. This is where rocket really scores: it drills you mercilessly at both listening and speaking... More

I am in lesson 5.2 of the Interactive Audio Lessons and just discovered all the phrases you can practice in the "Hear it" "Say It" "Know It" section of the lesson by clicking on the "EASY" button...

This is a great site to help you learn a language. I am using it to learn Italian, having grown up around the language, i thought I already knew the basics, but this has helped me to learn how to speak properly and learn even more! It's very thorough in it's explanations of why certain words are used and how to learn the correct grammar and forms of the words... More

I've only just begun the Italian course but so far I'm enjoying it. I really like how its structured and I like how its focused on how to handle real life situations. I also like in the modules that you have to work through not only writing the language but speaking it yourself (although it feels a bit odd at first to speak to your computer but you get use to it quickly!).

I'm from Italy, born into a family that speaks Italian. My family raised me to speak English, and so I've never learned Italian. I've always been interested in my ancestry and wanted to learn more. Though my English isn't the best, and I know a lot of Italian, this site really helps me learn more of the language... More

I have tried a few other Italian courses over the last year and a half or so. This course, is the most interesting and immersive course I have found to date. Other courses are the same and seem to follow a certain way of teaching which I found did not help me, however I have noticed a more definite ability to understand and speak Italian over a shorter period which I did not have before.

Like many people I've tried to learn another language, in my case Dutch but didn't keep it up, in part due to the style of teaching used by my chosen 'popular' learning course.

what do get if you procrastinate and are indecisive about learning a new language on line? You get Rocket!!!!! I did not get as far in the lessons as I wanted but even though our three Italian guests we were taking around touring for three weeks spoke minimal English at most, and our Italian was minimal this course was set out so well that we could search the situation and communicate with one another far better than using an English-Italian dictionary...
