Allons-y ! Let's go!
Co-Founder and CEO
Let's rewind to 2004. I'd been trying to learn French for a few years. I'd spent a lot of time doing everything that language learners are "supposed" to do:
But nothing seemed to work. I wasn't much further than when I'd started—unless being able to say, "The cow is on the car," is progress!
I guess I wasn't the ideal candidate for learning a second language:
I knew I couldn't be the only person having trouble. So at the start of 2004, my friend and co-founder, Mark Ling, and I put our heads together.
What other challenges were holding people back from successfully learning a second language? And how could we help them overcome them?
We did a lot of research, including:
Within 12 months we had created both Rocket Spanish and Rocket French by combining:
Both courses were instant hits. Users sent us rave reviews, saying how much better our courses were than anything else on the market.
With this early success, we started expanding into different languages.
Not only that, but our member surveys told us that our learners were hungry for more. We listened and built advanced levels of our most popular languages.
We update and refine our courses to keep pace with advances in learning and technology.
Fast-forward to the present day. Rocket Languages is a recognized global leader in online language learning.
The online language learning market has changed immensely since 2004. For instance:
So, how do we intend to stay ahead of the pack?
It all comes back to the vision that we had, and still have, for Rocket Languages:
Which, for us, means providing the most effective online language learning courses possible.
We build our vision into everything that we do here at Rocket Languages. We will do anything and everything to make your language-learning experience better.
So, I know that Rocket Languages will remain a leader in online language learning for many years to come!
