  1. Great site. I was looking for this information in different sites and finally I just landed here. I never tried rocket languages, I think I will try it this time.

  2. I think just about covered all of the language learning programs out on the market. This is a very clear to understand review to that will no doubt help learners make an informed decision about the best method for them to use. Great job!

  3. The Rosetta Stone software for Mandarin Chinese is very poor. We have had several students who used it and struggled quite a bit. It is available as fake copies all over China, so very cheap, but at our language school we do not recommend it anymore.

  4. I am looking for a good course with audio that’s good for learning/reviewing while driving.
    1st I read the 1st chapter grammar, words and other material then I listen to the corresponding audio on my computer.
    2nd Listen to the same audio while driving again and again till I have it memorized.
    Pimsleur is Ok but has no written material and I like to see what I am learning. Pimsleur also lacks grammer instruction which I prefer to read from a book or guide.
    Valuable Audio time should be used to learn proper pronunciation and sentence use and have minimium use of the English language,( another annoying issue I have with Pimsleur.)…
