What's the Rocket Languages story?
Rocket Languages was formed in early 2004 by two friends, Jason Oxenham and Mark Ling. Jason, a dedicated Francophile, and Mark, who was studying Spanish at university.
They both agreed there should be a more effective way to learn a language than the traditional methods, and embarked on a mission to create a learn-Spanish system that helps you:
· Speak Spanish right from the first lesson
· Understand Spanish when it’s spoken to you
· Reduce your study time as much as possible
After 12 months of research, with help from their Chilean friend Mauricio Evlampieff, and Spanish language expert Amy Waterman, the original Rocket Spanish Premium course was created.
Rocket Spanish Premium was an instant online hit, with customers sending in rave reviews about just how much better Rocket Spanish was than anything else on the market.
As a result of this success, Rocket French soon followed and now the Rocket Languages stable includes Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian and American Sign Language; as well as English courses for speakers of Spanish and Japanese.
Fast-forward to 2016 and Rocket Languages is a recognized leader in online language learning, having further developed and refined the products to keep pace with customer, e-learning, and technological advances.In fact, the Rocket Languages system has been so successful that there are now over 1,200,000 registered users of Rocket Languages products.
