  • Rocket Languages
    When learning a foreign language, spoken conversation is one of the most important skills?and one of the most difficult to master. That?s why Rocket Languages? online courses focus on listening comprehension and pronunciation, rather than dry written work, using techniques that let students learn a new tongue in as little as half the time of traditional teaching methods. No matter what their experience level, students can practice chit-chatting in one of 12 available languages, including Hindi, Mandarin, Spanish, and Italian, or engage with English-as-a-second-language courses designed for native Spanish or Japanese speakers. With lifetime access to their chosen courses, participants have unlimited chances to practice more than 30 interactive audio activities per level, and time to take in enrichment lessons on cultural topics, such as how to cook a country?s cuisine or identify its soil by mouthfeel. Though the lessons are administered online, they don?t lack a human element: a native speaker hosts each course, bilingually guiding students through the material. Rocket Languages had been positively reviewed by The New York Times even before a major 2012 upgrade that introduced games and apps that are compatible with iPhones, iPads, and Android tablets and smartphones. Since then, these interactive improvements have garnered an Editors' Choice award from PCMag and a BESSIE Award for Best Foreign Language software. Popular features include Rocket Record, where users can record their pronunciation of phrases and compare them to recordings of their tutor saying the same phrase, and a progress tracker where students can compare their progress to other students in the same level.
