For years I had half-heartedly tried to learn Spanish. I had taken a few courses, barely passing and learning little that lasted beyond the final exam. I literally had nothing to take away from the painful experience.
About a year ago I began a new job in which knowing Spanish would allow me to better communicate with my coworkers and obtain a deeper understanding of and connection to our organization’s mission. I felt at a complete disadvantage in earning their trust and respect not knowing the language. It was difficult to relate to my coworkers and to truly understand their challenges and concerns. After a few short weeks I decided to make the commitment to learn the language by trying something different.
I took a long look at the various foreign language products on the market. All seemed to offer a different learning experience than I previously had. However, one program was very dynamic and offered a comprehensive learning system for a fraction of what their competition charged. I decided I had nothing to lose by trying Rocket Spanish since they offer a 60-day money back guarantee.
I decided to try the online downloadable lessons, about half the price of the DVD option. In just a few minutes, I was able to begin my lessons.
I was simply amazed at what I found and how quick and easily I learned the language. There are more than 30 interactive audio lessons in which I participated in real-world situations. It was more exciting and comprehensive than previous language learning experiences I’ve encountered. I learned more than just the words, but the cultural insight that was critical to my desire of wanted to learn Spanish.
I found having all the audio tracks in the MP3 format extremely convenient, allowing me to take it wherever I went. I was able to listen on my drive to work or during my workout. The online resources also provided a learning path and helped keep track of my progress.
The online experience with Rocket Spanish was impressive. The portion I liked best is the software games that make learning fun. The games helped reinforce the audio lessons, which I think was one of the keys to learning Spanish so quickly.
The reinforcement of everything I learned was extremely helpful with impressive online tests and quizzes. I also took advantage of the online forums and email support. Rocket Spanish also offers technical support by phone, but I never needed to utilize it.
As I continued through the Rocket Spanish materials, I became more comfortable and confident, and began to implement some of my learning into my work environment. Not only was I able to communicate more effectively with my coworkers, I think I quickly gained their respect as they saw me putting forth a genuine effort.
In the end, I believe that Rocket Spanish helped me develop a more intimate and effective working relationship with my coworkers. It gave me a solid foundation and equipped me with the confidence I needed to step out and use it in my day-to-day work experiences.
