Chinese language is an exciting experience to
undertake. The language is so different from any
other, that you have to be certain that the
course you choose is up to the task. But how can
you be sure you are selecting the right course
for you? We put up this site in an
effort to share our experience with anybody that
is wanting to learn to speak Chinese.

I have reviewed is Rocket Chinese™ which is
produced by a company named Rocket Language Ltd.
The package was written by
Lin Ping, who
is a native Chinese. The company has an
outstanding reputation for producing high
quality language learning courses which include
French, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese and
Chinese, as well as the American Sign Language.
The first module contains 31
audio tracks that will have you speaking some
basic words after your first listen. The course
instructs conversational Chinese which means you
will be able to converse with native Chinese speakers in your travels. You will feel
comfortable ordering in restaurants, asking for
|The package includes the
actual transcripts of the audios and I found
that particularly helpful in following along.
Each audio is about 25 minutes long which means
the full module is about 14 hours of content.
The methods used within this content will allow
you to absorb and speak Chinese quickly.
Fourteen hours seems like a lot I know, but with
the use of the audio tracks the time goes by
very quickly and effortlessly.
The program also includes software that makes
learning very easy, and more importantly, it is
fun. The first software application is what they
This is a software
containing a vocabulary recognition tool. I
found this extremely helpful in
the beginning of my studies. You basically run
through a series of words and you learn the
words through repetition, and an association
with a picture. It's sort of like the flashcards
you used to learn with when you were a kid.
The software has 1000 words
and pictures built into it, but it also allows
you to add more words and pictures of your
choice as you advance through the course.

started to learn the vocabulary I went on to the
MegaAudio™ software. This phase of the course is
where I started to feel confident that I was
definitely on the right track..
The software provides exercises that test and
improve your recognition of the spoken words.
The system provides a score with each exercise
so you always have a unit of measure for your
this software to be a lot of fun to use. It is
one thing to learn the vocabulary, but to
understand it when spoken is another. In my
opinion this is where other programs fall short,
and where Rocket Chinese excels.
Another very cool aspect of
the Rocket Chinese™ program was that is isn't
just an introductory course. The course is
designed with the assumption that the student
has no background in the language when starting.
But it continues to an advanced level as well. I
felt like this increased the value of the
program because I wouldn't have to go out and
buy a more advanced course as I progressed.
Possibly the most impressive
part of this course is the members only forum
where you can ask questions and communicate with
other students and the Rocket Language online
instructors. To me, this forum made the cost of
this course a real bargain. If you happen to get
stuck on something, you find lots of help in the
I had a hard time even
finding a Chinese course that I felt was worth
my investment of time and money. But the cost of
this course was the real surprise. The folks at
Rocket Language offer the complete course as an
easy download. By selecting this option I was
able to purchase the course for about one
hundred dollars. They also offer the course on a
set of CD's, but that comes at a price of about
three hundred dollars. I was happy with the
downloaded version as I simply burned the
material to CD's and was able to listen in my
car and I even loaded some of the audio tracks
onto my ipod. But of course I used my computer
to take most of the course.
I also liked the fact that the Rocket Language
company was backing up their product with a 60
day guarantee. This made me feel very
comfortable with my decision. When taking into
consideration the quality of the material
presented in the course, the methods used to
teach the material, the software that is
included and the support offered in the members
only forum, it is very easy for me to highly
recommend this course.
I award the Rocket Chinese™ program my highest
rating of 5 stars. If you are wanting to learn
Chinese, then in my opinion you owe it to
yourself to check out this Rocket Language program.
Good luck with your new challenge!
