I absolutely love Rocket Language System. I wish I could be on it more but work prevails most of the time. I love the way the process tests you not only on your memory but also on your enunciation of the language...

Probably the best language tool I've come across. Actually love it more than Rosetta Stone and Duolingo. I will definitely be paying for the full product. The 6 day free preview is a blast to field languages to see if they will work for you...

It's a very well thought out progression through the language. And starts in immediately with practically applicable language with the rules of grammar sprinkled in here and there. Enough so that you actually learn the mechanics of the language but not so much per lesson that it becomes overwhelming or dull...

Just bought today been looking through the course and I have to say the structure and integration of the way you learn with Rocket languages is by far the best I've seen. I've gone through so many different systems and learned bits and pieces but they always seemed lacking in the way they presented the language be it Japanese or any other this system might be the best I've seen other than having an actual tutor or class.
