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. Many times my intonation is not what it should be and the system catches it. Thank you Rocket 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. I strongly recommend everyone consider the ASL which is not what I typically expect to find in language courses. Full immersion with video only. Great for hearing and hard of hearing who are lip readers.

Tempted to overload with multiple languages (looked at Korean. After one look I have a far better understanding of written Korean)

Absolutely worth it!

To all my fellow "I have been burned in the past " people,

I have found Rocket to be a great buy so far. The navigation and use of the Rocket package is very easy and user friendly, and I enjoy the interactivity and goal orientated nature of the courses. More importantly, I have successfully understood, learned and retained lessons from the get go!

Can't wait for their Cantonese course! (wink wink, nudge nudge)

I have been able to find nothing else that is so effective and inexpensive. It fits my crazy schedule, and I listen to the audio lessons while driving, cooking, cleaning, and walking.
Also, the customer service people respond quickly and helpfully. I have recommended it to many and will keep doing so.

It has been very frustrating having a Japanese wife and not being able to speak much Japanese. When we get together with her friends or her parents I feel a bit lost sometimes. The tipping point was my recent trip to Japan. I decided right then that I REALLY need to be able to speak the language. I researched many programs online and Rocket Japanese seemed to be the best fit for me. I must say I have been extremely happy. I can take things at my pace. I do about twenty minutes each day. I love the banter back and forth between Kenny and Sayaka. It keeps it fresh and interesting. I am confident that I am finally on my way to being able to speak Japanese. Thanks so much!

I've studied Japanese for years using various language learning software, but none of them have really helped me out as much as Rocket has. To begin with, the learning curve feels appropriate for each lesson. You are doing more then just listening to words and phrases and trying to memorize them, you actually unearth the reasons why you say various things at various times. The explanations help you to stay on track, and remain motivated. And even if there are words you don't understand, you can highlight them at any time and look them up in the dictionary. Don't like the definition that is given (or there isn't one)? Then you can add your own definition to stay organized.

Unlike a lot of other programs, you are also learning how to write the actual language in the way that the Japanese do. After all, how can you say you truly understand a language just by reading or speaking it? You have to be able to write it as well, and Rocket shows you how to write each hiragana, katakana, and kanji character properly, stroke by stroke.

Price wise, Rocket is truly a bargain for the content that you are receiving. It is all available as soon as you sign up, and there is no expiration date to use the material. Unlike several other programs, the price is also reasonable and stays out of the $200's, making Rocket affordable.

You can't go wrong with Rocket Japanese. Whether you are a beginner or more advanced, there is still something to learn.

I really enjoy the variety of tasks per lesson. While not all are how I learn, it appears that Rocket Language covers a wide variety of learning styles to cover most people's learning styles. I enjoy the audio portions and the text recall sessions. Combined I feel like I'm learning three times as fast as I would with either one on their own.

If you want to start learning a language Rocket Language is a good way to jump in head first.

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. All in all it's a very very good course and I'm very happy with it.

I'm still very new but I think it's very helpful, especially with a language like Japanese as I can't read the writing - yet! What I didn't know when I started was the Rocket Japanese would help me learn to read it as well!!! AWESOME!!!
