This Review Covers the Rocket German™
Language Learning Course...
|Learning to speak with
another culture's language is a mind expanding experience.
Deciding to speak a second language is one of
the most rewarding challenges that you can
undertake. Many countries now require their
students to learn a second language in order to
graduate from their high schools.
I wanted to experience another
culture and had planned a trip to Germany. I
wanted to learn to speak in the native tongue
before making the trip. I also didn't have the
time to attend a class, so I wanted a home study
One can find several courses
that proclaim to teach a foreign language. How
do you know which ones will deliver, and which ones
won't? I put up this site in an effort to
share my experience with anybody that
is wanting to learn to speak German.

The Rocket German Website
I have reviewed is Rocket German™ which is
produced by a company named Rocket Language Ltd.
This course was written by a native German speaker by
the name of Paul Weber. The company has an
outstanding reputation for producing high
quality language learning courses which include
French, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and the American Sign Language.
The beginning module contains
31 audio lessons that will have you speaking
some basic words after your first lesson. You will feel
comfortable asking simple questions, receiving
directions, ordering food etc.
includes the print transcripts of the audios and I found
that to be a real plus. The first module is about 14 hours
in length. This may seem like a long module, but
I became so excited that I was learning so fast,
that I just consumed this part of the course. I
was learning and having a great time doing it!
The program also includes software. The
first software application is what is
The use of this
software is what made learning so easy, and more
importantly, it was fun.
This is a vocabulary
recognition tool. 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 2000 words
and pictures built into it, but it also allows
you to add more words and pictures of your
choice as you decide to learn more and more

this software to be a lot of fun to use. I had a
good time learning the vocabulary, but when I
started to really
understand it when spoken, I really got excited.
I had a tough time trying to find another
program that even offered this type of software.
This 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.
As a student of this course,
I was given a free membership to the Rocket
Language Online Forum. This is a really impressive
part of this course. The members only forum
is 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
forum. I would be more than willing to pay a
monthly fee to belong to this forum, but
thankfully I don't have to. It's part of the
You are probably thinking
that a course like this must be very expensive.
The price of just under one hundred dollars for
the downloaded version is a steal. The
download was easy and I was able to watch it all
on my computer, burn the material to a CD to
listen in my car, and
I even loaded audio on my ipod! If you prefer to
have the course shipped to you on CD's, the
company offers that option as well.
I think you will have a very hard time finding a
more user friendly course. I am very pleased
with the results I have had using this program
and I am more than willing to recommend it. The
company offers a 60 day no hassle guarantee. So
if you decide it's not for you, you have the
option of a refund. When I consider the quality
of the course work, the software, the forum, the
guarantee, and the bargain price, I can only
give the Rocket German™ program our highest
rating of 5 stars.
Good luck with your new challenge!
