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...

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

I love this program. I am learning so much, although the premium program is a little expensive. But, I'm going to Italy in a few months and I feel very confident and I'm doing very well. I have a couple suggestions: 1) I would like an area or a quick "free" App to write a few of my own sentences or words to practice (instead of bringing a tablet or paper to do this), and this App will write it out in Italian (or visa versa in English); and 2) Do you have an App where I can open it up without Wifi? To open while I'm in Airplane Mode? I have a competitors App on my phone to do this but it is not as good as Rocket Languages)... More
