Review of "Rocket Hindi", by Nikita Sharma
But you can forget all this--and simply just follow a program--with Rocket Hindi, a self-guided language learning program made by the same people behind Rocket German.
Here's how it works: After purchasing Rocket Hindi, the program instantaneously downloads to your computer, containing all of the materials you need to complete this eCourse. But these are not simply books or lessons you're downloading--you're also downloading interactive plans that engage your mind, always make things interesting, and allow you to absorb vocabulary terms in a fraction of the time. The best part is that it really does seem fun, and not just an actual learning tool.
So what does Rocket Hindi contain?
What Rocket Hindi Contains
To engage you and help you learn, Rocket Hindi uses several types of media to enhance the learning experience. This includes:
- 31 interactive audio lessons. Available via MP3, these lessons guide you step by step through conversational Hindi, which you'll need to learn in order to speak fluently in Hindi-speaking countries. Each lesson is very condensed, making it easy to follow along.
- The Rocket Record. If you're not sure if you're pronouncing a word right, here's where Rocket Record comes in. This audio device uses sound map technology to show how each word is pronounced, and your goal is to make your sound map match this. To do this, you'll need to talk into a microphone to allow it to map out your voice. If it matches, you're on target. If not, you need to improve.
- 31 language and culture lessons. Simply repeating phrases or words in Hindi won't do, because it won't teach you how Hindi is really spoken. Luckily, these language and culture lessons teach you what you should expect, allowing you to modify your own speech to closely match theirs.
In addition to these helpful learning tools, you'll also gain access to the creator of Rocket Hindi, who will answer your questions via email or forum message. You'll also get to download fun vocabulary games that help you learn vocabulary terms fast--and it's fun to play. For $67, you can't really beat this price.
Issues with Rocket Hindi
Criticisms thrown at this program, which tend to be very rare, are mainly focused on one thing: It's only directed towards beginners. In turn, these lessons will only advance you through novice to intermediate Hindi; don't expect to become an expert. For more advanced study, you'll probably have to rely on tutoring, lessons, or books--most self-guided language learning programs don't teach expert-level Hindi. That's a really small drawback though, and most people who buy this program probably aren't aiming to be Hindi experts; just conversational speakers.
What the Customers Have to Say
Funnily enough, there aren't reviews of this product yet, and Rocket Hindi does appear to be a new product. Perhaps they haven't had the chance to review it yet, or people simply aren't buying it. However, one language expert, Simon Ager of Omniglot, has this to say about it:
"I have enjoyed this course so far and hope to complete it eventually. I have successfully tried out some of the phrases on Hindi-speaking friends, and when I listen to online Hindi radio broadcasts, such as BBC Hindi, I am starting to pick odd bits and pieces."
So far, so good.
So, what's the verdict here: Should you buy it or not?
Well, here's the thing--Rocket Hindi is a good product, but it's only good if you're a beginner; a person who just wants to get the basics down. If you're looking for more advanced study, then this program probably isn't suitable for you, and you should use another program to advance your knowledge of the Hindi language. But if you just want to get your feet wet, then Rocket Hindi won't be a regrettable purchase.
