What sold me on Rocket originally were the recording and writing features. Although I have not had the time to use all of the program (and it is not from a lack of interest), this has been a robust experience so far.

I haven't come across anything yet that has not been a benefit in learning another language to me. It has been well worth the money and I would say that Rocket is a reasonably priced value, in my opinion.

I love Rocket Japanese!

I've been studying Japanese for a few years now and the biggest problem I always had was that I had to keep switching between several different books, audio CDs, and computer courses in order to get a FULL education.

It was incredibly frustrating when I would finish a book or course and not feel like I had learned very much that I could actually use. Then I found Rocket Japanese - Thank God!!!

My two favorite things are that it covers ALL aspects of Japanese (speaking, listening, reading, writing, and culture) and also that there is an enormous amount of material. I invested in all three levels and it was the best decision I've ever made when it comes to learning Japanese.

Bottom line is this: if you are truly serious about learning Japanese then you NEED Rocket Japanese. I highly recommend it to everyone who asks.

It's been years since I've had a formal Japanese course, and was never near any level of conversational proficiency. I've tried other methods and courses to try and brush up on the language, but nothing seemed to stick. Though I'm only through the first lesson, it seems like this might be what can get me being conversational!

What really seems to help is the encouragement to speak and repeat the language, which is something that I've always been shy about. I plan to see this course through, and if there are ever any other languages I want to pursue, I'll definitely use Rocket Language!

Once you get started the Rocket course is fun and the learning experience is great. From the very first lesson you learn that you can learn and it actually makes you feel like you can do it. The different ways to practice also "force" you to try. I also like that the lessons are short and we always review what we have learned in the previous lesson. I just need to remain committed and I think I will make good progress. It also helps to see the points add up the more you practice.

Rocket languages supply "Translation method" for learning 2nd Languages . It's the same as in the school. There worse has no photos to understand by view , no stroke order .
Too many lessons for beginners .

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Bubill - Did you see the Writing lessons? There are videos in each of those showing you how to draw different characters, with the correct stroke order!

I have really enjoyed learning Japanese with Rocket Languages. It is a real challenge but the course gave me the confidence to travel solo to Japan earlier this year. I was really pleased to have a basic knowledge as there were plenty of occasions when no English was spoken. Rocket Languages also gave me an understanding of Japanese culture which is very different. It is an amazing country and I plan to continue my studies to improve my Japanese ready for a return visit. I like the broad approach of the course, using spoken and written Japanese. I struggled initially with the hiragana keyboard but Customer Service was able to point out where I was going wrong and the more I use it the easier it gets. Including elements of grammar is very useful and makes it easier to understand the structure of a language that is quite different from English. It is a very well-structured course.

I've tried out many apps to learn Japanese, and no matter how many I tried, I always come back to Rocket Languages!

Unlike many other apps, once you get Rocket Japanese your membership is lifelong, no need to update your subscription. That's a really worthwhile investment. Ah, and of course their learning method and organization of studies is great (I can save pdf of ALL lessons to repeat even offline).

I am really enjoying my Rocket Japanese experience so far. You all have really created a very well rounded system for learning a new language. I love the diversity of information and mediums of teaching.

Its a very useful tool to help improve language skills with excellent breakdown of sentences and explanations on why things are said. It helps if you have a basic knowledge of the language beforehand.

I had actually done the Rocket Spanish and I was a bit disappointed with Rocket Japanese. I do not feel that there are enough lessons to get an understanding of the material. I also do not feel that verbs were covered enough.
