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, were both familiar with the language learning material provided by universities and bookshops.\n Rocket Languages system is based on both science and the practical success strategies that polyglots (people who speak 5 or more languages fluently) use, which practically guarantees your success.\n Rocket Languages are often asked how Rocket Languages learning courses compare to the courses of other companies. Quite reasonably, people want to know why they should go with us when there are other big name companies around. RocketLanguages compare Rocket Languages to the 500lb gorillas. \n 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.\n 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.\n 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.\n In fact, the Rocket Languages system has been so successful that there are now over 1,200,000 registered users of Rocket Languages products.
