Good! I cannot write English well. That is why I must learn English. So, I cannot write review. Anyway, It was interesting to see the wave of my voice comparing with the native speaker's voice.
Rocket French — Denver
I really like the interactive dialog with the conversation and chance to practice and record my responses and am pleased about what I've learned thus far. However, I really wish they would have more of this in each module vs. the 'self study'/written portions in each module. I learn best when I hear conversation/dialog vs. the dictation/response of the lessons. For example in module 1 there are 5 lessons of conversation but 10 lessons of pure dictation/response. This doesn't suit my learning style well.
Rocket Hindi — chennai
Good to start as a beginner but can provide more sample lessons basic free and can make other advanced lessons like essay writing poetry as chargeable. Good that hindi is given in readable form of english.
Rocket Chinese — CA , United States
I think the overall teaching style of this program is pretty great, but the execution is not there yet.
The major shortcoming is the male's pronunciation. I am a complete beginner to studying Chinese, but it's incredibly obvious his pronunciation is absolutely awful. During the conversations, I can understand the female perfectly fine, but I still can't understand the male speaker well even after studying the lesson. I also worry that I may pick up bad habits myself even listening to his speech. Another minor drawback is that I do not believe there is a way to zoom in or make the characters larger on the mobile app, which is unfortunate since I tend to study these lessons while exercising on an elliptical or other cardio machine, so the phone is a fair distance away from my eyes. A feature I wish they would add in the future is increased robustness of the conversations. Instead of teaching us exactly one perfectly scripted conversation, teach us variations. Most of the time there are a handful of different ways someone could say the same thing, so even if the conversation is relatively simple in content, learning just one specific tightly scripted conversation is going to be pretty useless once you step out into the real world. Overall, Rocket Chinese is founded on good ideas and has solid potential, I hope it will strive to improve and live up to the potential I see.
Rocket Sign Language — mesa az , United States
The review games are an awesome idea. The don't have the structure they need to help with the learning process. I would prefer the lessons to include more vocab and less history. I know the history is important but the language learning is what I'm here for.
Rocket Spanish — calabar/cross river state
Learning spanish has been made really easy for me with the help of rocket spanish. I used to think i would have to go to a spanish school to learn the language but when i came across rocket spanish, it changed my ideology completely.
Gracias mucha guys.
Rocket Arabic — Bajur
I have enjoyed learning Arabic the Rocket way but now for about the last 10 or 12 lessons they have been the same lesson. "Greeting". I would like to learn something new I would to be able to speak more quickly. Maybe some letter exercised would be beneficial.
it so interesting method in learning language. learning language means adopting a new person from oneself in my point of view . how you could create this feature in other phenomenon . learning method is too important factor in proceeding forward that was very high potential in this regard. please be patient and then will justified.
Rocket German — Chennai
Rocket Language course for German Language study is really useful and one can attend to the course at his or her timings. One aspect that is of highly appreciative isthat what is required of one to go over to a Language Lab all theway is easily reachable at our home and at our study desk. At any time of the day or night , I can just open my Computer and listen to and respond to through interactive audio lessons. Thats awesome and I like it. Since I would like to be outspoken though not critical , I expected certain simple grammer learnings like the prepositions, modal verbs infinite verbs and their conjugations . pronouns , cases and tenses. If these aspects of the grammer is introduced to the beginner, it would have been still better for a beginner to understand any simple sentences in german language. To sum up I liked the lessons that I have covered till date.
Rocket Spanish — University Place/WA
I have just begun using this product. I currently use RosettaStone and Fluencia and other online products, some of which are very good. It is too soon to make comparisons. I recognize it is premature to write an accurate review.
