We believe in a brighter future.

Kids who enter school today are facing a non-individualized learning system, resulting in knowledge gaps that often go unresolved. To us, quality education means catering to each student’s individual needs and giving every child the transformational skills needed for a brighter future. Becoming a confident English speaker is growing in importance with globalisation and digitalisation. It unlocks further education paths, access to information, and career opportunities. 

Centered around applied linguistics, we teach practical English skills without losing the focus on fun. We combine our academic foundation with technology and design to build beautiful and user-friendly products with the purpose of giving children all over the world a brighter future.
