  • Jury still out

    The most important aspect of a language program is whether or not it guides you towards learning a language. In perhaps 4-5 weeks of use, I feel Rocket Languages is accomplishing that goal. I like the lesson variety. They typically begin with 20ish minute audio exchanges, followed by lessons involving listen and repeat using speech recognition, listen and write, read and speak, etc. Combining hearing, seeing, speaking, and writing at least for me help to reinforce the learning process. By far the worst aspect of the app is the plethora of bugs. As mentioned in at least one other review, the speech recognition software often has difficulty understanding you and the problem worsens the longer you use the app for a given sitting. Often it reaches a point where the moment you press the microphone to speak you receive an immediate disclaimer that the app is sorry but it didn’t understand you, failing to provide any time whatsoever to actually attempt to speak. Deleting and reloading the app clears things up for a bit, but the problem always returns. It’s also not uncommon to see other bugs related to missing words, sentences, or translations as you work through a given lesson. I’m making progress leaning Spanish, but the app issues certainly have hindered my progress to a degree, and that’s disappointing.
  • Good App, could add a few features

    I would give it five stars if I could download the lesson audio and play offline.
  • Great Japanese Course

    This is a great app and it is very useful. My one complaint would be that with the new update, during the “Write It” portion of the testing, it will not let me us ten ten in the Japanese course. For example, if it wants me to spell out “arigatou”, it would normally be written ありがとう, but the button will not allow me to put the little mark, making か turn into が, therefore failing the writing portion. If this could be fixed, that would be great!
  • Lousy app

    I was told this would be updated in February due to major bugs. Not so. Why don’t you fix this app. Many people have iPhones.
  • So far not so good

    Two complaints. Using on an iPhone 7 Plus when I have a Bluetooth headset on and try and use the vocabulary feature where I speak the words and record it to listen back, your app disconnects from my headset, causing me to shut the app down and reopen loosing all work during that session. Second complaint is during a lesson your moderator says now it’s your turn, and then Maria talks. You really should try using your own course as a student and then you will find these irritating items
  • Love {most} of it

    I bought all three levels for Japanese and so far I am loving this so much more than the other programs I have purchased. While I love the content in the program I am not a huge fan of the male narrator for Japanese. There are times when his comments to his female co-host seem condescending and I am not sure if that is all pre-scripted or if that is his personality. I adore the speech recognition however it seems to be hit or miss on whether it works even when I am at home on WiFi. Some days it works without a hitch other days it works for some testing activities and not others while other days it just doesn’t work at all.
  • Awesome app

    This app is great! It’s really helpful and a lot better than just getting on the Rocket Languages website. One feature I love is that you can speak and it will grade your pronunciation.
  • Disappointed... don’t waste your money!

    I just purchased Rocket French (levels 1-3). The computer version is nice, however I am extremely disappointed in the mobile app. For the price I paid, I expected the app to be a great resource to use on the go. The app requires wifi or data and is really not designed well for mobile. It appears like a scaled down version of the web (small buttons, etc) rather than being designed in a way that is user friendly on mobile. Duolingo is light years ahead in terms of UI and that is a free app. Really hope this app is improved quickly as I'm considering getting my money back...
  • The app is troublesome

    The content and methodology of the course are very good. The app, though, does not coordinate well with the OSX desktop version (neither does the iOS "full" version, for that matter--it doesn't allow for speech input at all!). If you want a fully functioning, portable Italian language learning program, consider alternative language programs until Rocket Languages get their app up to speed.
  • Cant get it to work

    I have an iphone 6s and have tried to get the voice testing to work for awhile now. I even purchased a headset thinking the iphone microphone was the problem. It still does not stop after I speak and sometimes it wont even begin recording. I wanted it to work, but will be moving onto more reliable programs
