Dive deep into foreign languages

Vision 

If you’ve ever learned a foreign language, at any age, you know how disorienting it can be at first, not to mention frustrating and time consuming.

 

Then there is this magic moment, when you seem to cross an invisible line, and you find yourself understanding without thinking about it, and communicating without worrying about whether you’ve got everything just right. The journey may have only just begun, but finally, from this point on, it starts to be fun.

 

StoryPlanet is all about luring you over that invisible line as quickly as possible. So right from the beginning, your language learning journey feels more like a pleasure cruise, instead of an odyssey.

 

Most people who have mastered a foreign language will agree: eventually you reach a point where you see the value in reading books, watching movies and listening to the radio in the target language. Trusty dictionary at hand, you embark on an adventure, going deeper into the new language...you put down the book, look up a word, make notes, and then start reading again, but when the whole process repeats a few times, you ultimately slow down and...stutter to a halt.

 

With all the technology in our hands nowadays, why can’t this process be optimized to keep the learning experience as fluid and immersive as possible? Enter StoryPlanet, which can turn any digital text (or audio or video file with a digital transcript) into a language learning tool. You tap a word or phrase and get an instant translation, and later practice that very same word or phrase in the same context you first saw it in.

 

That’s what sets StoryPlanet apart from other language learning technologies:

  • You experience the new language based on a story you chose yourself 
  • You immerse yourself in an engaging and meaningful context 
  • You only learn what is relevant to you right now

Are you a bookseller?

Language learners buy books, audiobooks, textbooks, dictionaries. They are a unique customer group that StoryPlanet would like to drive to local booksellers: to buy your products, attend your readings, as well as to connect with other learners and teachers in your network. We are currently also looking for partner bookstores to act as sales channels in diverse markets around the world.
