This Review Covers the Rocket Japanese™
Language Learning Course...
|When I chose to learn
Japanese I knew I had to find a solid course
because it had been a while since I had been in
the "learning mode". Others had told me that the
Japanese language was difficult to learn, so
that reinforced my opinion that I had to use the
best course on the market.
I analyzed every Japanese
language program that I could find available online. After doing so my choice was clear. I
would be using the Rocket Japanese™ language
course offered by the Rocket Language company.

The Rocket Japanese Website
|Rocket has a
great reputation and in fact offers seven
different langauge courses including Chinese,
French, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese as
well as a full blown course on the American Sign language.The
Japanese course was written by
Matsuura, who is a native Japanese speaker.
The first module contains 31
sessions that will have you speaking basic words
after your first session. Initially, the course
teaches conversational Japanese which means you
will be able to converse with other
speakers in your travels. You will feel real
comfortable ordering in restaurants, asking for
directions, giving greetings etc.
includes the session 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
Japanese quickly. The use of audio tracks made
the presentation of the material entertaining.
The program also includes software that makes
learning very easy, and more importantly, it is
fun. The first piece of software is what they
This is a vocabulary
recognition tool. I found this very helpful in
the beginning. You basically run through a
series of words and you learn the words through
repetition, and an association with a picture.
This really reminded me of the flashcards we all
used to use when we were kids, except now I was
working with high tech flashcards on my

where I started to feel confident about all I

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 really
what is important. In my opinion this is where other
programs were weak
and where Rocket Japanese excels.
Another very cool aspect of
the Rocket Japanese™ program was that it 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.
This meant that I wouldn't have to go out and
buy a more advanced course as I progressed with
the language. To me, this added extreme value to
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 will find lots of help in the
forum. This was included for free!
It was difficult to even
find a home study course of this quality for the
Japanese language, but to find one at the price
of right at one hundred dollars was a real
shocker for me. In fact as I continued to use
the material, I became even more impressed with
the price. The course I decided on was the
downloadable version, but they also have it
available on CD's which can be shipped to your
home. I chose the downloaded version because it
was cheaper. I listened
to the program
on my computer, burned my own CD's for listening
to in the car, and
I even loaded audio into my ipod!
To top it all off, the folks at Rocket offer the
course with a 60 day, no questions asked, money
back guarantee. 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 Japanese™ program my highest
rating of 5 stars. If you are wanting to learn a
second language, I can't think of a better way
than by using the Japanese course offered through
the Rocket Language company.
I wish you much success with your decision to
