Welcome to my Rocket Chinese Review. In this review, I will let you know my experience with this online course. But just in summary, I thoroughly enjoyed this course and really recommend this to all of you that would like to learn Chinese but in a fun and interesting way.
Firstly, upon paying for the course, you are instantly taken to a dashboard. A dashboard is basically like an index or contents page of the whole course. The dashboard is organised into four sections. Here I will explain what you receive in this course:
1) Audio lessons
These are the core lessons that will help you learn Chinese by listening to conversations in Chinese. These conversations are between two teachers, Lin Ping, who is the Chinese tutor and also Dave who is British. These conversations are recorded in the audio and you have the ability to stop, rewind and replay as many times as you like and this allows you to learn quickly the Chinese spoken word.
Along with these Audio lessons, you can print off the transcripts so you have lessons printed on paper to allow you to follow the audio lessons easily. Not only are the lessons written in pinyin (which means the English equivalent which is written based on the accent of the Chinese) but the lessons are also written in Chinese characters, otherwise known as Chinese script.
You can also record your voice while speaking in Chinese. And there is a section that allows you to write any notes down onto the dashboard.
2) Language and Cultural Lessons
The next section of the dashboard is language and culture lessons. This is where you learn more about grammar as well as interesting cultural facts about the Chinese language. Like the audio lessons, there are also written lessons that you can also print off.
This section also helps you to improve your Chinese accent and aids you in pronunciation.
3) Writing Chinese Lessons
Some of you might find it daunting to learn how to write Chinese but this course is arranged so that you learn easy basics first and then slowly move onto the more complicated words. Included in the course, are many videos which teach you how to write Chinese characters and which strokes to un curso de milagros use first. It sounds intimidating but I found that with the step by step guide and video, it was much easier than I thought.
4) Games section
This section allows you to hone down on your Chinese knowledge by making it even easier to learn vocabulary and grammar by the use of games. For example there is the memory game that allows you to better remember Chinese words and phrases. These games are fun and interesting and allow you to learn even more. I found these useful as you don’t feel like you are studying. And just by playing these games, you are actually learning.
5) Survival Kit
This allows you to learn more vocabulary that is relevant to Chinese conversation.
I hope that you have found my Rocket Chinese Review useful. I personally have found the Rocket Chinese course excellent value for money and extremely useful for learning Chinese, especially for beginners.
The lessons are arranged based on different scenarios. For example, there is a section on introductions, travelling and even talking about the weather. Since the lessons are arranged around scenarios, the lessons are interesting and allow you to learn how to speak Chinese even easier. This is because the audio lessons allow you to listen to the conversation and you can repeat these lessons as many times as you like while allowing you to learn more quickly.
So many people have benefited from this course and I have learnt a lot of Chinese from this Rocket course and I firmly believe that you will too. If you want to learn Chinese quickly and in a fun way, don’t delay any longer, Rocket Chinese is the course for you.
