Let’s see how well the facts stack up…
How to learn Spanish – What should I be looking for?
There are many Spanish courses on the market ranging in price from free to …. well you name it! Before rushing into anything, there are several things you need to consider:
Will it suit my learning style?
Some of us learn better by seeing, others by listening or doing, so for example, courses based solely on listening to audio are unlikely to suit everyone. Reinforcement is an important part of learning any language, so besides over 12 hours of audio and language lessons, it’s good to find that Rocket Spanish includes plenty of games and interactive quizzes.
What is my situation and why do I want to learn Spanish?
If you are living in a Spanish speaking country then you are at a big advantage as you will get lots of opportunities to practice what you learn. If not, things can be much more difficult. Rocket Spanish enables you to enrich your Spanish learning by giving you access to the ‘Community’, which has sections on Grammar, Travel and General Questions. You could post tips on useful resources you have found, ask questions and make new friends at the same time.
Rocket Spanish also has culture lessons, which should go hand in hand with learning any language (but sadly in many courses are often overlooked).
Audio lessons are iPod/MP3 compatible, so you can download and listen anywhere. The software can also be downloaded.
Is it right for my needs?
Some courses only teach you the polite forms of verbs. In this day and age that’s not really very helpful. Rocket Spanish Premium concentrates on practical topics and modern, everyday Spanish, so it is ideal for travel to a Spanish speaking country or if you have a Spanish speaking partner. It would certainly be useful if your job takes you to Spain or South America, but you will need to get a good Spanish dictionary for those words which are specific to your industry.
