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

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.

Accessible and targeted, this course has been really helpful so far. No one else in my family or circle of friends is trying to learn Russian, so it's been harder to find authentic audio, which this course has really helped with.

So far this has been a great course. I have really enjoyed it. I start out with Rocket Russian first thing every morning and then use my other language courses to build on what I have learned. I've been using it to prepare for an upcoming trip to Russia.

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!

Having a great deal of fun with this Rocket Russian - my favorite part is getting feedback on my pronunciation because Russian uses many different sounds from my native English - I really love this !!

Very helpful, easy to use more geared to speaking and understanding than grammar but that is fine for me I use other resources for that. overall very good product, You'll be able to hear and understand and respond to native people and be understood. A++ keep it up!

I really think the system is great. Personally I have tried lots of courses before and for me it's the combination that really convinces me to stick to the course. In the moment I do the Russian course and even though it bothered me to write everything I learnt I realize how beneficial it is. Also the flashcards are nice, even though I prefer Anki. Anyway, it's a great deal for the price and I will stick to Russian and also go for another language. The weekly e-mails I get could be improved, maybe someone listens and makes them responsive. It's really hard to read them on a mobile phone.

I absolutely LOVE Rocket Russian! I have tried so many other books, programs, cds, online tutorials, etc - and this is by far my favorite so far. I love that it uses a lot of repetition to build your foundation. I also love that it's not a monthly thing - but a lifetime subscription so I can take my time and not feel guilty about missing a day or two.
Great program! Love it! Thanks!!

So I was already really into Rocket Russian...I liked how you could listen to the audio and have your speech tested as well, the speech recognition is actually quite good.

But then one day I realized that you can answer the "hard......easy" classification scheme after each question, by using the 1/2/3/4/5 buttons on the keyboard, and that "R" would initiate recording......now I am no-hands, baby.

Spasiba, Rocket Russian!

Method: Love the repetition of the content in different forms (listening, typing, reading, role playing). I can learn the material in very different ways instead of just memorizing it all by heart.
Design: The best features are line-by-line audio and vocab. Very useful when I want to hear certain words/lines over and over again.
Content: Very useful and practical. However, Russian only has one level (please add more!).
Experience: I'm extremely pleased with the learning experience.
