  • Mission Statement

    In the knowledge economy, communication skills are paramount. And in the global knowledge economy, English language communication skills are vital for professional success, social mobility and personal fulfilment.


    With English, as with any language, the key to effective communication is vocabulary. Other aspects of language – grammar and pronunciation, for example – are important, too, and without them little can be communicated. But without words, nothing can be communicated. Words mean the world.


    Our mission is to harness the power of Natural Language Processing and link it to the resources of the world's best language reference materials, including Oxford University Press’s suite of English-learning dictionaries, in order to transform the way that vocabulary – and language – is learnt.


    Our mission is to combine the power of technology with the very latest research into the way that languages work and the way that languages are learnt in order to help learners acquire better English language skills in a more efficient, more enjoyable and more personalised way.


    Our mission is to provide state-of-the-art English language learning solutions that will support both learners and teachers, and that will be recognised by learners, teachers, linguists and psychologists alike as the smartest system that is available.

    Best vocab trainer on the App Store!
    This is a very great app to learn vocabularies and it doesn’t get the attention it deserves!
    It helps with long term learning through intelligent repetition of words and very good feedback on mistakes. There are no flashcards, but you have to answer contextual and based on your current learning level. This is much better than flashcards and helps you not only to learn the meaning of the word, but also how and where to use it.
    A really nice feature you don’t find in any other vocabulary app is the integrated dictionary, where you can look up words, add them to your personal dictionary and learn them.
