Rocket Spanish is a quality alternative to Rosetta Stone, which at one time was the only real option for fast progress in any language area.
Rocket Spanish steers clear of word repetition and picture matching like the older style programs tend to use, and instead engages learners with a multitude of exercises, including quizzes, cultural language lessons and other exciting learning tools.
As someone in their thirties I need a program to be entertaining to hold my attention, otherwise I just switch off and feel like I am back in school.
Rocket Spanish certainly does hold my attention, and what I find most useful is the way it effectively combines vocabulary and day-to-day conversational skills, something I think Rosetta Stone lacks slightly.
This is extremely important; because what tends to happen is, you learn a language and then visit the country, only to find out that the locals use phrasing your language software hasn’t taught you. In this respect Rocket Spanish has the upper hand.
Rocket Spanish is a fast and effective way to learn Spanish, and a lot of time and effort has gone into lesson preparation to make sure the learner is getting a full spectrum of situational conversation.
The program definitely surpasses the pitfalls of older style programs that utilize the “listen and repeat” process. Although I started out with Rosetta Stone, which is also a great program, Rocket Spanish has definitely upped my capability level and has engaged me just as much, if not more.
Encouragingly you get a 60-day money back guarantee, which is always a good sign that the creator is confident in the product. The lessons are also transferable to MP3 player or an iPod, iPad or other Android device.
For me this flexibility is essential, because having limited time to study, this means I can learn on the train, in the car and in the gym.
Having failed so miserably in school to learn a language, I have undertaken quite a few courses in the last few years, including Spanish, Chinese and French. I don’t have time for classes so computer software is my preferred method of learning.
However, a very practical aspect of Rocket Spanish is the buyer can choose between a hard-copy CD package or an online download. The 20-disc hard-copy package is a lot more expensive at 299.95, whilst the online download software is a steal at a presently reduced price of $99.95.
