I've been to Japan several times and have learned a few words and phrases during my visits. However, the language was always very intimidating to me, and I found it hard to grasp much of the structure and flow of the language... More

This is a great program that uses a mix of audio, text, and quizzes to help you learn a language. I'm trying to learn Japanese and I was very relieved when I saw the program has all the writing methods of Japan (Kanji, Katakana, Hiragana, and Romaji)... More

I have been studying Japanese on and off for a couple of years, this is because i get too busy and reading a book takes a lot of effort and becomes boring when you do not know much of what you are reading and there is no one to tell you if you are doing the right thing or if you are even pronounce it correctly...

I already speak some Japanese and I speak German very well. I am using these as a review through my local library system. One thing I found is a bit off and often is with Japanese is that you ask a person to write in Japanese but have the lessons for writing kana separate and ongoing with the other lessons... More

I am still in the first lesson, but so far I am very pleased with the Rocket Japanese program. I really like that, from the very first lesson, you are learning complete sentences that you can use in a conversation versus just vocabulary words... More

It's just awesome, so easy to learn at your own pace, at your own place. The voices are perfect, clean and warm, which I like the most. Everything that you need to know is explained in detail, and every word is recorded that you can hear it again, many times you want, just wonderful... More

Its a very useful tool to help improve language skills with excellent breakdown of sentences and explanations on why things are said. It helps if you have a basic knowledge of the language beforehand. More

Love it thus far. But the pace seems to be picking up rather quickly. For example i feel they are not leave enough time in between word or parses for you to repeat when compared to previous lessons. Don't get me wrong i expected it to eventually speed up but i'm only on the third lesson... More

Great program to get started if you do not know Japanese at all. Good for beginner to intermediate. I haven't utilized the site long enough to see all the resources it has, but i do think it is convenient that it has an app that operates the same way as the site on a PC. More

I have just started using the trial Japanese program, and I think it is fantastic! I'll be buying the entire Japanese program in a couple of weeks. I love Kenny and Sayaka, the presenters. They speak slowly and clearly so I can understand the pronunciation of the words, and they explain the grammar in small bits so it's not overwhelming... More

So far working through the Rocket Japanese lessons I am learning a lot slowly when I have time, It's very easy to pick up from where you left off and to review previous material. The speakers on the audio lessons are very clear and easy to understand which makes learning better as you can hear the proper pronunciation. More

Rocket Japanese makes it easy and simple to learn and lessons are laid out in a sensible order to reinforce learning through various tools and reviewing techniques. In addition the audio tracks are lively with a somewhat cheesy humour which i thought made it more of a fun experience :) More
