I would like to say that Rocket Languages is awesome because makes me feel comfortable about learning a difficult language such as Russian. I feel like I have had a immersion in the Russian words and culture, seeming to me as if I were living there...

I became gratefully surprised about the Rocket. They overcame my expectations in the best way!!

I am so glad I bought Rocket French! The course as a whole is outstanding as it caters to all learning styles. I find it difficult to learn just by ear so being able to write, test and get involved in the actual conversation really helps the new vocabulary sink in! Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to learn a new language. It's much easier and more fun than learning in a class! :D

Very good set up and structure. However, my main complaint is that the conversations never really got increasingly complicated. Additionally, they did not include too wide a range of vocabulary. The audio is great for learning pronunciation but I feel like I spent a lot of time and did not learn as much as I could have say, through duolingo which is free. I would only recommend this program to people who have never studied a language before because it goes slow enough that it may be beneficial to get over the initial fears of learning a language. However, for people such as myself with a more developed linguistic background, I felt as if the dialogues did not advance very much and that I did not really leave learning as much as I could have if I spent the same amount of time with other resources.

I feel as if Rocket Languages needs to drastically alter the content of the dialogues to better suit them for "intuitive" grammar and vocabulary acquisition. That being said, the main structuring of the program I found to be fantastic and the native audio files also were superb.

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Alexander, and thanks for the feedback. Rocket Russian Level 1 is a beginners course, so can feel slow if you are an experienced language learner. We would recommend switching to Rocket Russian Level 2, which is more advanced.

This approach to tackling Russian is exactly what I needed. I started the language with textbooks and grammar and only managed to frustrate myself. Since starting Rocket Russian, I've seen massive improvement in my listening and speaking abilities and I couldn't be more motivated to keep learning! It's brilliant!

I have a hard time finding Russian classes in my area and in-person tutoring services cost $40/session. No thanks. After trying more memorized-based programs, I stumbled across Rocket Russian and it's like a class that I can control at my own pace! It's challenging, full of information, and is one of the first programs that has me really speaking the language.

I have recommended Rocket Languages to a few of my friends and many are shocked at how much there is on the site. I am moving at a slow pace but do not feel rushed - my favorite part of the program. Worth the price! Trust me!

Very user friendly and makes it very easy to learn. It helps make the learning experience a joy to follow. The only glitch is that sometimes it doesn't recognise my pronunciation although I know that it's right but that is a very minor problem on my part. Wish the price was a bit lower but I'm happy with it.

Living in regional Australia, I am unable to undertake formal Russian language studies, but this is the next best thing. It manages to cover all the essential language skills which is something I haven't found in a lot of self-directed courses. Self-directed teaching means my speaking and listening skills need extra attention to ensure I am always progressing.

My favourite feature is being able to compare my own voice to that of a native speaker—it has helped my spoken Russian immensely. As an ESL tutor, another feature I love is "language chunking". It makes forming new sentences easier, and I can speak phrases with a more natural flow.

I was both very pleased and surprised with Rocket Languages. Never has learning a language felt so effortless. The combination of many different learning styles is very helpful, and really helps immerse yourself in the language and experience. The voice recognition algorithm is a great learning tool, and really makes me feel like I am being taught by an instructor. This fully interactive learning experience is great for teaching the language, and keeping your recall and memory of what you’ve learn sharp. I would highly recommend to friends and family over competition companies like Rosetta Stone. Each Unit is a very personalized and useful audio lesson, where you take part in the experience from start to finish. Then you are not only told vocabulary but encourage to rehearse it verbally and in writing. The various drills used to check for proper spelling and enunciation was a huge help to me while learning Russian. I’ve already improved my Russian understanding and verbal abilities by 20% of what they used to be when using free platforms found online. It just isn’t that same or as instructive as the service offered by Rocket Languages. The community here with Rocket Languages is great also.

One major flaw, which is very frustrating. That is the speech recognition software is of poor quality. I do not know why this was not pretested better. But when saying the same words the same way results in a much higher score there has to be a problem. I listen to my voice played back, and it sounds much more like the Russian speaker's voice than the guess printed by the software. Often with time and no changes necessary it will register 100%. But often it will keep on asking for a repeat. It becomes very tedious. Otherwise the package is well designed, with a grammar emphasis which is necessary but often missing from other packages. So using this package I know why and how I am making a mistake. I have used another package in conjunction with this, but the other package is not sufficient by its own because although memory of the language improves, better understanding of the language is very slow. Rocket Russian helps this.

I started with zero knowledge. In just a matter of weeks, I am able to communicate well with native people. I find this method very effective and easy. Particularly I like the interactive audio lessons. Thanks a lot for making this.
