I was recently asked by a student to give a critical Rocket Spanish Review. Aside from learning the Spanish Language through immersion one could also learn Spanish from home. After searching around a bit online I concluded that it is one of the main Spanish products pushed on the internet. However 9 out of 10 reviews on it seem to be solely made in order to sell the product, I even doubt that the reviews are made by actual former Spanish students. Leaving all the eccentric ads that can be found online about Rocket Spanish aside, below is my objective review on learning Spanish by using the Rocket Software
Firstly some critiques:
- The "promotional offer" (100$, instead of $300) always stands. So don't worry about hurrying up and buying the project right away.
- The whole flash card games etc. offered by Rocket Spanish are not really that sophisticated. Still I admit its a nice tool.
- If you are already pretty advanced in Spanish, Rocket Spanish wont leap you forward in great steps. It seems to be focused more on the beginning Spanish learner.
Now for the plus points:
- The free online Spanish course that they are offering actually gives a good insight on beginners Spanish and I certainly can recommend it.
- They have a 90 day return policy and after my mystery purchase for this review I can confirm that the policy is enforced without any problems.
- The recordings are crystal clear
- The conversations are based on realistic settings (unlike the Rosetta stone course for example)
- Part 1 of Rocket Spanish is great for beginning Spanish learners
I am passionate about people learning the Spanish Language and I hope that by discussing different options more will start learning the Spanish language.
