Rocket Languages ?
It offers courses to learn more than 12 languages, becoming one of the most recognized companies when it comes to online language learning.
It has over 1,000,000 registered users using the services. The teaching method is based on the formula "listening, speaking, reading and writing" so that you can be prepared for different situations.
You will find a voice recognition tool to check your pronunciation level.
Each level has around 120 hours at least and you can download support material and a mobile app where you can continue learning wherever you are.
Overall, our opinion is that
In a few weeks, you might learn enough to be a polite guest in a foreign country. However, we believe this is not a suitable method if you are trying to build a foundation for a language that you wish to study in depth. Be careful, if you are learning a language that uses a script different from the Latin script,
A strong selling point of the app is that you can pay a one-time fee for lifetime access, rather than a monthly or yearly subscription.

✅ Documents are online, downloadable and in the mobile app

I don’t like...
❌ Practical exercises aren't always great
❌ Doesn't provide enough structure to master non-Latin scripts

What languages can you learn?
If you're an English speaker, it will let you learn 12 languages: American Sign Language, Arabic (Egyptian), Chinese, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian, and Spanish (Latin American). You will also find programs for learning English with instruction in Spanish or Japanese.
How does it work?
It offers audio lessons followed by exercises. It also offers culture lessons, writing information for languages that use non-Roman scripts, and other reading materials to help you learn more about the language and sometimes the culture of its speakers. The lessons are simple. You have an English-speaking host who gives you instructions, plus one or more native speakers who demonstrate the spoken language. Your job is to listen and speak out loud when asked.
How much does it cost?
When you purchase the method, you pay a one-time fee for lifetime access. The amount you pay depends on how many levels you need. Each language can have up to 3 levels. American Sign Language, Arabic, Hindi, Korean, Portuguese and Russian have only one level. Since the sign language course is a little different, its price is unique. Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish have three levels.
The price breaks down as follows:
➡ American Sign Language (99.95 USD)
➡ Level 1 (149.95 USD or 6 monthly payments of 27 USD)
➡ Levels 1 and 2 (299.90 USD)
➡ Levels 1, 2 and 3 (449.85 USD)

I sat down for my 'Rocket Spanish' session this morning and feel so happy with the quick progress I'm making that I thought I'd come on trustpilot and write a review. I'm surprised to see that there's only one other review on here and it's not a good one...I was thinking there'd be hundreds by now!
Decent, slightly different way of teaching language from what I've seen before. They didn't launch into verb conjugation until a way in which was interesting. Sometimes an odd choice of nouns to teach, but in general it's working. Definitely wait till a black friday sale or something, their list price is pretty high (although comparable to other systems)
