    Hey, I have to say I liked what I saw on Rocket Languages! :)

    After looking into Chinese, Hindi and Sign Language it seems consistent in what’s offered for each language. [The "Survival Kit" offered in Chinese seems to be the same as a lesson in Hindi that's called "Survival Phrases." So there might be a little searching for the "same thing" from language to language but it's there.]

    It’s easy to see your progress with pie charts as well as a “proficiency” rating! The inclusion of certificates seems useful for resume varification!

    Great resource! :)
