Rocket German Review

Job, traveling, exploring roots; whatever your reason to want to learn German, Rocket German, the online language learning course is the right fit for you. Its creator, Paul Weber, claims that it is never too late to learn and promises that his course is fun, easy to follow and will have you speaking German with confidence in no time at all. Instead of wasting your time with a class that is either too fast or too slow, with Rocket German, you can learn the language your own way and never waste a moment of your learning experience. Always available online and easily downloadable to your MP3 player, you can take these lessons with you where ever you go.

What you get:

-31 Interactive Audio Lessons
-31 German Language Lessons
-31 German Culture Lessons
-MegaGerman Language Learning Games
-Lifetime Membership
-Interactive quizzes and self tests
-Online access

Bonus:
-Rocket German Survival Kit

The price for the Rocket German Premium Edition is $99.95. While this is a bit pricey for a digital product, it is actually quite affordable when you compare it to taking classes or even buying one of those highly advertised language learning software courses. You can also get the program on 20 CD's shipped to you for $299.95. Also, if you would like to continue with your studies, there is also a second level called Rocket German Premium Plus available for an additional $149.95.

What Others Think:

Looking into the various language learning forums, it seems like most people who have tried the Rocket German Premium Course believe that they have gotten their money's worth from it. They find the course to be both fun and challenging. The one major point that the detractors bring up is that a program like this will not be able to give you feedback on your pronunciation, like a teacher or tutor could. Aside from this, even those who have not actually tried the program believe that it can give a person a good grounding in the German language. While the Rocket German Premium Package is worth the money, it seems like a few customers are not very happy with the Premium Plus Package that costs an additional $149.95. Some have expressed disappointment over its content and even claim that it has almost the exact same lessons as the Premium Edition.

All in all, it looks like The Rocket German Premium Course is worth a try. I found the learning material to be very engaging and even fun at times. While you may not be able to get the pronunciation perfect, you will probably get a good understanding of the language. The only thing that I can fault the program for is the lack of video lessons to go along with the audio lessons. Other than that, this is a great program. Also, since it comes with a Clickbank 60 day money back guarantee, trying it out comes at no risk to you.
