I started recently, so far so good. Very complete, very entertaining. The explanations and examples are so easy to follow. Love to use it on my computer, on my ipod. Have the capacity to download the audio and listen to it while driving and practicing is so convenient... More

The designers of this course seem to have thought of everything: practice in understanding with clear, lively speakers, practice in speaking, checking pronunciation with voice recognition recording, cultural and grammar tips, many different ways to practice and reinforce learning, videos to teach writing, lots of support...

I have tried different online courses so i might say I have seen quite a bit but so far this is the best. It explains in details structure, grammar and also emphasizes the important thinks to remember which a lot of other programs lack and are focused only on the vocabulary... More

So far so good. This is my first language learning experience and I'm very new to it. I like the way the practice sections are set up and the repetition. I believe its been worth the investment given my limited experience with it so far. More

Rocket japan is great, I haven't finished yet but I can already talk to my Japanese classmates. I had purchased it during a sale and got all 3 levels for 150 which for me made it a good deal but after using it I definitely would have bought it at full price... More

My feelings with this course are quite mixed. On one hand, there is a lot of material and you pick up useful phrases from the very start. On the other hand there are several issues which in the long run are quite frustrating especially in the testing part 1) Apart from the Quiz section, everything else is clearly automatically generated from the material...

This is a very good tool for learning a new language. The lessons are detailed, but with enough repetition to ensure you understand before moving on to the next lesson and the audio is very clear. The follow up exercises are invaluable and a good way to reinforce what you have learned... More

I agree with several reviewers that the narrator, Sarah is possibly the most monotone person on the planet. I mean, she gives Ben Stein a run for his money. The product idea is great and when it's working properly, it's the best on the market... More

The voice narrator needs to be replaced, she is too monotone. Lessons should still to an extent reteach verb forms or grammar rules they have mentioned before, instead of telling the audience to refer to an obscure moment in a previous audio session... More

Good impression, but I am only at lesson 1. I need some more time to comment more accurately and in a more qualified manner. I am using in parallel some other programmes and apps to learn Japanese. However, to have with Rocket the possibility to check my pronunciation and to be obliged to say some sentences is certainly a plus. More

I've been studying Japanese on and off for 10 years, and also spent 6 of those years living there. I've used nearly every program available, and Rocket Japanese is one of the absolute best there is! It's entertaining and challenging enough to make you look forward to studying and it's structured enough to ensure you know the material before moving on to the next lesson... More

I used to really enjoy these lessons (taking the Japanese course). The banter between tutors Sayaka and the original Kenny made lessons enjoyable and fun. Since I had returned from my trip to Japan I had taken a short break from practicing, but I recently jumped back on only to learn that the original audio lessons have been replaced with a super boring monotoned narrator...

I absolutely love the layout of Rocket Japanese. The read and response questions as well as the pronunciation practice really helps to nail down such a complex language. I often listen to the lessons when it's not busy at work or when I'm driving so there's never a lot of downtime between lessons... More
