Hola, Salut, and Nihao Language Lovers.

First of all I want to give a big thank-you to all of you who took the time to respond to our recent survey.

As you know we’re always really interested in finding out about what motivates you all to get involved in learning a new language. This helps us at Rocket Languages to deliver just what you want, and just what you need, to make language learning even better.

We’ll take your feedback and use it to refine what we do. Because we’re always working hard to give our members the best language learning resources available.

Now, you’ll remember that we were offering 10 lucky respondants the chance to choose a Rocket Languages course of their very own to kick-start their language learning. Well, the results are in, the draw’s been drawn, and the winners have been notified…

So congratulations to Boris, Nial, Adrian, Bonnie, Gillian, Russell, Kutub, Lynette, Jocelyn, and Vikesh. These lucky winners get to select any Rocket Premium, Premium Plus, or Platinum course with our compliments.

And again, a big thanks to all of you who took the time to let us know what you think. We couldn’t do what we do without you!

Happy Language Learning…

The Rocket Languages Team.

We like to think that one of the things that really sets us apart from the crowd is the research and development that goes into our courses. We started, way back in 2004, by finding out what actually works for second language acquisition, then we kept on improving until today we can offer you the latest greatest Rocket Languages courses yet.

Now I don’t want to waffle on too much about all the new features we have to offer, you know that we always come up with great stuff. Just let me say that all that all the upgrades we’ve developed for 2013 are as a direct result of feedback from you, the learner!
