Rocket Russian — United States
Submitted: 5 months ago
My first time trying to learn Russian and I'm loving it. This program is making it simple and efficient to learn which makes it less stressful.
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

Wonderfully engaging and well structured course! The voices are clear, precise and melodious, Jessica in particular, is an absolute delight to listen to! Natalia and Ivan are superb as native speakers of Russian, the progression of the lessons comes natural, does not overwhelm, gently nudging you towards fluency. Impressive! I wish I had partaken in a course of this quality back when I was learning English! I would have advanced at a much quicker pace! Recommended!
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.

I started the last 5 days learning Russian seriusly! I committed myself to wake up in the morning and start learning at least 30 mins. Watching the strikes and the points help with my motivation. I think this time I will really learn the language. In other to learn a language is not enough to say that you this lesson, you need to recall the information, and there are some options that I use in other to know if I did. It is amazing to hit the button a listen to it again, it really helps to have a good pronunciation. I use only English, when I want to review, then I speak and hit play. So far so good, I love my Russian Program, I have Level 1, 2, and Travelodges. The information is solid, I supplement myself with other programs too like Michel Thomas.
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!
Rocket Russian — Russian Federation

I have lived in Saint-Petersburg for some time. I didn't learn the Russian language, was lazy the few lessons I had on other courses were uninteresting. I was not learning Russian conversation, only grammar rules. I get by in my English language. Now I have decided to learn the Russian language.
Russian Rocket is the perfect course to learn colloquial Russian
I would recommend to anyone if they really want to learn to speak Russian go to Russian Rocket
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!
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.
