Learning a language is suppose to be fun and enjoyable, which is why finding the right course that can achieve this is important. There are so many language classes available but not all are going to really help you speak. With this Rocket German review, I will find out if this is the kind of course that is worth the time, money, and effort of those who dream of speaking German.
I actually have a couple of buds from Germany who moved to our area. Although I don’t need to speak their language, I thought that it would be great to be able to converse with them in their native tongue. It’s a great way to bring as closer together as I would not only speak their language, but would learn more about their culture like they have been accustomed to mine. Besides, it has always been my goal to speak a range of languages, so I figured why not start with German?
I hated being in class as a student so no way was I going to learn German in a classroom with those boring teachers. So when I found out about the Rocket German program, I jumped at the chance of trying it out. It seemed like a fun way to learn without having to go to class. Besides, I have heard about this program before and felt confident about ordering the program seeing as it is from a reputable company.
I have to say, learning German isn’t easy, especially since I had to learn how to pronounce things properly just like it should be. I knew that I may never sound like a local German speaker, but what was important was that I could understand the language and others could understand me. So I continued learning the language through the use of audio guides from the program and also with the fun, educational games offered. When learning a language, it is important to make as fun and interesting as possible, which is exactly what this program did. Knowing how to speak a new language takes time, so I definitely didn’t get the basics until a few months after I started. Not only does it take time, but it also requires practice as well, which I had to continue doing. Often times I ended up talking to myself just to make sure that I am saying things correctly.
Ok so I had a get together with my German buds the other day to allow me to practice what I have learned so far. Considering it has only been a few months, my friends were quite impressed. I mean I don’t speak like them, but I was able to converse and ask questions with understanding most of what they said. After learning this language, I definitely recommend the Rocket German program to others who are in a quest to learn German. You’d be surprised at how well you will be able to speak in just months!
