The Spark
The success of Mondly makes me feel incredibly proud. While the growth of the app has been over a short period of time, looking back I can see all the steps that lead us here. As a kid I was a good student, but like so many, I always struggled to pick up new languages.

One day I discovered that recording my voice and listening back made a profound difference when memorizing a foreign language. In short order I was transformed into an A student and learning languages actually became enjoyable. The flame was lit. Years later it was my newfound love of languages that encouraged me to travel, work, and live in many different countries. During this time I learned conversational Czech, French, Italian, German and Dutch. I was helped by audio CDs from a famous linguist called Dr. Pimsleur, whose methods were similar to what I had discovered with my recorder as a kid. When I eventually read his book the dots finally connected. This is what I wanted to do with my life and together with my brother who graduated Computer Science and Management we started working on this dream.

The Beginning
Mondly was developed with a clear and focused goal, to take Dr. Pimsleur’s effective but outdated methods and update it for a modern audience. We want to learn in a way that is practical and applies to our lives. We want to learn while having fun, connecting and sharing with others as we progress. We want to use every learning tool and method available, bringing them all together in a truly enjoyable and engaging experience. We want efficient language learning that also happens to be as fun as our favorite games.
