  • History

    When founded in 2004, Rocket Languages was self funded but became profitable after 12 months, after which revenue was reinvested back into developing new language courses.

    Rocket Languages first developed Rocket Spanish, a Latin American Spanish course, followed shortly after by Rocket French, a French language course.

    As of July 2016, Rocket Languages has developed 26 languages courses and has grown from 19 staff in 2007 to 33 in 2009.

    In 2009, Rocket Languages had over 70 thousand customers of which more that half were American learners over 35 years of age. Rocket Languages courses are sold internationally to over 90 countries, with the main demographic being the United States of America, Britain and Canada.

    As of January 2017, Rocket Languages has 1.2 million users worldwide.
