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... More

Love it thus far. But the pace seems to be picking up rather quickly. For example i feel they are not leave enough time in between word or parses for you to repeat when compared to previous lessons. Don't get me wrong i expected it to eventually speed up but i'm only on the third lesson... More

I've been wanting to learn a new language for the longest time and could never really settle on one. I took two years of French in high school but found it wasn't for me and never pursued it further. I've always thought the Japanese language was very beautiful and since I do follow a lot of current trends of Japan as well as being enthralled in the deep cultural history, this made my choice very easy...
