Where Did Rocket Spanish Come From?

Rocket Spanish was created in 2004 by two friends Jason Oxenham and Mark Ling. So, it’s been around for almost twenty years now. Jason and Mark had experience of the traditional language learning techniques and books that were widely used and available at universities and bookshops around that time.

They had the idea that there must be a simpler and more efficient way to learn a language.

They set about developing a better way of learning Spanish and with the help of their native Spanish speaking friend Mauricio Evlampieff and an expert in Spanish languages Amy Waterman the Rocket Spanish Premium language learning course was born.

The main element of the course was a series of fully downloadable interactive audio lessons.

It’s aim was to not only have you reading and writing Spanish, but speaking Spanish, being able to understand Spanish when it was spoken to you and also to significantly reduce the amount of time it took to learn the language.

The course quickly became very popular online and managed to win a number of awards. That soon led to the development of other Rocket Languages courses based on the same learning methods. Rocket Spanish Premium has been continually developed and updated over the years.

A number of other languages have also been added to the Rocket Languages family of courses to the point where the company boasts of having well over a million online registered users of their language courses.
