We are a group of language experts and video game experts who have spent our lives connecting with people from all over the world.
We come from eight different countries and speak 15 different languages.
We believe that knowing another person’s language is the key to accessing their way of thinking. It’s how we learn about others and teach others about ourselves.
We are here to inspire people to use the power of language in their everyday lives in order to communicate with the rest of the world.

As a group of enthusiastic young entrepreneurs who were extremely passionate about education, language-learning and technology, we decided to quit our jobs and set up our own company!
In a couple of months we built a prototype of a mobile app to teach English to Spanish speakers. We started winning awards and were selected by Gloucestershire Growth HUB, UKTI’s Sirius Programme, and the Ignite Accelerator. What a month!
Our first app for Spanish speakers to learn English was launched on the iPhone App Store. Within a couple of months, we would go on to witness over 250,000 downloads of the app.
After raising a second round of investment, we were able to expand the team and to begin building the new 3D RPG version of the game. To join our family, visit our Careers section!
