I've used every language-learning product on the market, and Rocket is by far the biggest bang for my buck. The amount you can learn and internalize in a given amount of time is really quite astounding... More

Rocket Spanish is an awesome method to learn Spanish. Work and constance are needed but, if you do, you will feel the progress. I used to hear the lessons, when it is possible, in my car to accelerate the process... More

I'm still very new but I think it's very helpful, especially with a language like Japanese as I can't read the writing - yet! What I didn't know when I started was the Rocket Japanese would help me learn to read it as well!!! AWESOME!!! More

I am almost 75 years old and it's a long time since I did any study, but I'm finding this programme stimulating and user friendly. It is a good balance between the written and spoken word and combining it with little cultural snippets makes it more interesting and brings some reality into the learning... More

I went on a work exchange to a french ski area thirty years ago. After six months in Meribel my French was approaching functional, I have spoken very little French since. I've been really surprised how quickly it is all coming back after just using your product for just a week. More

I found the first level excellent. Both presenters were extremely clear. I'm on to the intermediate course now though and finding it much tougher. It's the same female presenter and she's excellent, but the male presenter in this course is really difficult to understand, pronouncing words considerably differently from the original... More

I was very apprehensive about buying this because I'm a student and this seemed like a huge investment. That impression changed after the first module. I had been trying to learn French from YouTube tutorials and Duolingo for a while and Rocket's software did better than both of those and has made me feel that it was worth the price I paid... More

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! More

The price can't be beat! I especially enjoy that I control what and when I want to focus on for my study sessions. The interactive audio sessions actually helps me to think in the target language. I'm having problems with the speech recognition and will likely need to contact tech support; however, the first few hours into the course and I'm enjoying what I received for the price. More

This could easily be a 5 star program, but there are enough poor choices by the designers that make it less valueable or frustrating to use that I am being generous to give this 3 stars. The bottom line is that it works, and it did better for me than when I used Rosetta Stone to learn another language... More

Rocket Languages is really good for someone who is wanting to begin learning a language fast and easy. It takes little time and you surely get a lot out of each lesson.
