Rocket Spanish is able to stand apart from the competition due to it's product features, teaching fundamentals, operating system versatility, customer support, and most importantly it's price! Without the uniqueness of the Rocket Spanish software program it would be just another face in the crowd!
Product Features of Rocket Spanish: The programmers of Rocket Spanish took the time to provide their customers with several software features that will really help them out as they learn to speak Spanish. These include progress tracking, iPod and MP3 player compatibility, games, testing and quizzes, image recognition, grammar lessons and audio lessons.
Progress tracking allows the user to review previous performances gauge their improvement over time.
iPod and MP3 player compatibility is one of the great features that this software program offers. The reason this is so great is because Rocket Spanish is primary an audio program. With the iPod and MP3 player compatibility carry your lessons anywhere with you.
I hinted on the games earlier with Mega Vocab but what I did not say is that there are two other games called Mega Audio and Mega Verbs. The Mega Audio game lets you listen to a topic in Spanish and then select 1 of 6 pictures that you think is associated with the topic. Mega Verbs is really important to this software package, especially if you ever plan on reading, writing, or carrying on a conversation with someone in Spanish. The Mega Verb game has been designed to teach you lots of different verbs that you may use in Spanish conversations and Mega Verbs teaches you how to convert these verbs to be used in different tenses.
The rest of the features are in a general teaching format and essential to your success. The ones I just elaborated on are unique and bread and butter of the Rocket Spanish program.
Teaching Fundamentals Covered: Rocket Spanish programmers bit the bullet and did not spare any resources in developing this area of their software package. You will get to learn Spanish by getting involved in Spanish grammar, Spanish reading, Spanish Writing, and Spanish vocabulary. The vocabulary is the most important of the four and essential to understand if you want learn how to speak Spanish. Fortunately, they have developed a great product feature to help you out with the vocabulary part of learning Spanish. This product feature is called Mega Vocab. You are provided with a database of hundreds of commonly spoken Spanish words and their definitions in English. This feature is very much like a game. You are allowed to study the vocabulary words and their definitions and then you will be given a vocabulary word and a series of definitions to choose the correct answer from. Sounds exciting huh? lol That's what I thought! This particular game wont be the funniest game you have ever played but it will allow for you to take a different approach to learning Spanish. Personally, I couple of hours of looking at flash cards would probably drive me insane. At least with Mega Vocab you will be able to compete with yourself or other friends and family. Mega Vocab is also set up so that you can add your own Spanish words and definitions to its current database if you choose.
Operating System Versatility and Price of Rocket Spanish: Operating system versatility and price are the two main reasons why this Spanish software is purchased and used by the majority of Spanish students. This learning Spanish software program can be used on all PC and Mac operating systems. It can even be used on the Linux and Unix operating systems, which is almost unheard of with the other Spanish teaching software programs available on the market today.
The price of the Rocket Spanish program definitely gives you the biggest bang for your bucks. It's only $99 dollars for the downloadable version. This is for the complete package too! Compared to other software programs the price of Rocket Spanish is easily 200-300% cheaper which makes it very appealing to a lot of customers.
