Company: Rocket Italian
Rank: #1
Cost: $99.00
Guarantee: 100% 60 days money back
Description: Rocket Italian is regarded as one of the best value for money Italian software courses available. Comparable courses, like those by Rosetta Stone and Pimsleur, can set you back $500 or even $600!

Rocket Italian promise to get you to an intermediate level in just 2 months. They accomplish this through fun interactive games and audio lessons that utilize a variety of learning techniques.


The course consists of 5 different learning components: Interactive audio lessons, illustrated grammar lessons, listening exercises, word recall games and a verbs software game.
The online forum is also a valuable tool. Language teachers are active 24 hours a day and you can discuss any issues with them and other language students.

Purchase options: You can purchase either the hard copies or digital software. The software is more economical and can be downloaded to your computer immediately after payment (and transferred to Ipod, MP3, CD etc).

Bonuses include:

  1. Very active members only forum for questions and interaction with Rocket Language instructors and students.
  2. Free 6-day Italian Course (you can check the learning style, lesson quality and structure up front).
  3. 60 day no questions asked money-back guarantee.

 

Final comments: One concern I had about the Rocket Italian course is that not All the narrators are mother tongue Italian. However this observation may be quite rigid as pronunciation and grammar are always accurate.

Rocket Italian is a fun, captivating and professional Italian software course with a very impressive after sales and learning support system.

What other people say about Rocket Italian:

saraI bought this software before a trip to Italy and wanted to learn it before leaving. The family had a lot of fun doing it together as there are tons of different exercises. It is very complete and extensive. The speaking activities are very useful and I truly feel I improved my pronunciation.
Amazon.com customer

saraRocket Italian is the most affordable and in my opinion the best product to learn Italian there is point blank period. It's what I've used personally and is excellent. It's $300 or so cheaper than Rosetta Stone.
Yahoo.com Answers Review

saraI had to live in Italy for a year so I took up Rocket Italian. It's a good learning package and it helped me to get by. I heard that the whole Rocket language series is good but I've only tried Rocket Italian. It's quite easy to learn and I enjoyed the natural way they present it.

saraWe paired Rocket Italian up against the other top programs on the market today, and the clear winner was Rocket Italian. It is considerably cheaper than its competition (Fluenz, Tell Me More & Rosetta Stone) and offers exceptionally well written and spoken Italian lessons.

Learn Italian Like Crazy

learn italian reviews

Company: Learn Italian like crazy
Rank: #2
Cost: $99.00
Guarantee: 100% Money Back
Description: Learn Italian like crazy is a very Italian, learn Italian course! The emphasis is on speaking Italian naturally with proper pronunciation.

The course uses a native Italian speaker as narrator, and the lessons are clear, well organized, easy to follow, and focused on real-life everyday Italian language & situations.

Many students appreciate the down-to-earth approach, attention to Italian grammar and the natural method of learning - rather than the parrot repetitive method that so many courses teach.

Bonuses include:


  1. 3 Free lessons and videos trial
  2. Additional video lessons
  3. Free foreign institute course
  4. 60 day no questions asked money-back guarantee.

 

Final comments: Because Learn Italian Like Crazy has only one narrator it could be argued that it lacks the diversity of other courses. As humans we are more receptive to certain voice tones and styles than others...

It's also true that Giovanna's course is very personal and can be compared to building a relationship with a close friend. Plus you can always try the free trial to see how the style sits with you.

Rosetta Stone

learn italian reviews

Company: Rosetta Stone
Rank: #3
Cost: $574
Guarantee: 100% Money Back
Description: Rosetta Stone offer a very comprehensive learn Italian software course backed by a solid reputation, however compared to Rocket Italian it's a lot less value for money.

Some concerns:

  • The full emersion teaching style is not suitable for all learner types (with no translations some students get lost).
  • There isn't any conversation until level 2
  • To use the product you need to be online so it would not be possible to listen in the car or load it to an mp3 player.

Final comments: While the Rosetta Stone learn Italian course is an excellent product with a solid reputation, Rocket Italian have set the bar at least 2 rungs higher. Rosetta Stone is a product that you either love or hate.
