I am generally very happy with the spoken feedback and the quality of the instruction of Spanish.

Unfortunately often my mic fails to pick up my spoken answer correctly. I bought a special mic for my iPhone and I hope that the mic performance will improve.

However, I need to review and practice hard points such as writing with the correct accent marks. Doing the harder parts of lessons several times is helpful.

I am very pleased with being able to download lesson lectures. Then I can practice away from the computer. This is very helpful.

One problematic lesson:

In Module one of Rocket Spanish, there is one lesson that is poorly designed. Presently I am doing the alphabet. Why is there no spoken practice of the alphabet? Words are presented as a vocabulary list to be memorized. How useless. ! But there is no testing or practice of spelling which is the object of the lesson. This pointless presentation of the alphabet is unlike the quality of other lessons. I wish it could be redone.

Also, in this lesson it is argued that the alphabet is related to learning the correct pronunciation of Spanish.

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Ellen - Thanks for the detailed review. As far as the alphabet not having voice recognition, this is because single letters do not work well with voice recognition. It always looks for a word or phrase, which would give mixed results. In saying that further down that page there are examples of each letter of the alphabet in use in common Spanish words.

We will email you directly as it does seem strange that we haven't received or replied to your emails.

Speaking in your target language I think is the key to success. The more you speak the faster you learn.
Rocket Languages has a test called Play It. It's where you in engage in a conversation with a native speaker.
To me, that is my absolute favorite test. I have not seen anything like that anywhere.
Rocket Languages has an amazing amount of resources and learning material to help you in your target language.

Sadly, my Rocket Spanish is not working anymore. It worked flawlessly for a few weeks and now
the audio just stops. I can't complete my learning, I can reload the page, but I can only make so far before it stops again.
Technical support has not been able to resolve my issue.
I have very limited use of the website.
So I'm in the hunt for another language course.
I've seen what's available and tried many, nothing tops Rocket Languages, so I will have to settle for second best.

Response from Rocket Languages: Hi Brian - I am not sure what has happened here as we have replied. Customer support will be in touch again. We are sure the issue can be resolved.

I like the audio and the repetition. I want to be able to hear and understand Spanish, not just read it. That is true of most people that learn a second language. Rocket Spanish puts more emphasis on listening and speaking than Rosetta Stone. The points system is also great because it encourages you to do more each day to earn more points.

Well organized and easy to follow. Problems with microphone seemed to cause program to loose it's place in quiz. Once I learn the navigation plan it should be easier for me. I keep backing up and learning how to move forward. It has been a while since I used the system and the changes were a bit difficult to follow.

The Rocket folks have the ability to spread their enthusiasm! I think they really love what they do..... their product is proof. The Rocket system is affordable and easy to use but best of all, it has quickly improved my Spanish.

I chose to take an online Spanish class after moving from Cleveland to Little Havana in Miami, FL. This course has been the perfect compliment to language immersion! I feel like I learn something on Rocket Spanish, and then I am immediately using it to communicate with my neighbors. Rocket Spanish has taught me so much already, and I have enjoyed the process so much. I am about halfway done with the course, and can't wait to see my fluency increase in the second half!
If Mauricio and Amy, the creators of Rocket Spanish see this-- thank you! You're very charming and engaging, and it has helped me learn Spanish.

We tried Pimsleur and Duolingo each for a month before finding Rocket Spanish. Two weeks into RS and we’re pleased and feel like we’re learning USEFUL conversational Espanol. We wsh RS allowed us our own learning profile on one account like Pimsleur does. Pimsleur Level 1 to us as Beginners was VERY boring and far less practical than Rocket. And, Duolingo is a nice phone app for vocabulary but we learned very little practical conversation Spanish. So for our money and the time we will invest Rocket was a very good find.

Almost Great
The organization of material, and its presentation are great. There is one technical flaw, however, and it is major, and inexcusable in this very expensive app. In neither the Lesson or the Conversation can you stop or go back to something that you are not sure of. In learning a language, there are ALWAYS situations where something specific is not clear and you need to confirm or correct what you just heard. It’s amazing that you in order to find that specific thing you need to double check, you have to finish the entire lesson or entire conversation, go back to the very beginning and listen to the entire thing again! That is a MAJOR technical flaw, and I am amazed that, although it has been mentioned by other reviews, it hasn’t been fixed. If that were fixed, this would be a 5 star app, now it’s only a 3 star app.

Rocket Spanish has truly helped me have a better life because my boyfriend is Mexican and we would argue because of not being able to communicate. I'm so happy now and so is my boyfriend, now husband. Thanks rocket Spanish. Pamela Roach
