Buona Sera! Parli italiano? (Good evening! Do you speak Italian?)
My today´s review is about a really cool online language learning programme Rocket Italian Premium. I have always wanted to study Italian, but with 2-year-old toddler it is hard to find time to go to any classes and so when I was offered an opportunity to review this online programme, then I was happy to do it.
Rocket Italian Premium contains 7 modules:
- Greeting, Meeting, Food and Drink
- Arts and Culture
- Family and Friends
- Cucina Italiana – Italian Cooking
- In Review
Every module contains audio lessons, and language and culture lessons. Each audio lesson has audio tracks with conversation transcripts. In language and culture lessons you can discover the mechanics of the language and learn 1000´s of common words and phrases. Each lesson ends with a variety of tests. You can test your understanding of spoken Italian and writing; test your knowledge of vocabulary by translating from Italian to English; practising conversation where you can record yourself taking part in the conversation etc.
So far I´m still working on my 1st module so it will take for me to finish all 7 modules, but so far I have been enjoying using Rocket Italian Premium online programme. I like that I can learn Italian whenever I have free time and I´m not depending on class times, babysitters etc etc etc. When I am listening to the audio lessons then it feels like I was in an actual classroom with a teacher and what I like is that in audio lessons they also explain how you should pronounce something etc.
To be honest, when I first started using this programme then I wasn´t sure how would it work. Okay, I can listen the tracks and read the conversation transcripts, but I was worried about thWould yoe speaking part. In traditional class you have a teacher, who listens you speak and corrects you when you make a mistake. But here, I don´t have a teacher to listen and correct me??? Well Rocket Italian Premium has you covered 😉 They have voice comparison tool, which lets you record yourself saying words and phrases and then listen it and compare it.
Overall, my experience with Rocket Italian Premium has been great and it is good online programme for those who want to learn some basic Italian, but can´t find time to attend an Italian classes.
