Voxy

Voxy, a cloud-based language learning platform, believes that language enables dreams and opens doors to new life experiences--careers, trips of a lifetime, and new relationships. Research has shown that the most effective way to give language learners the skills they need to accomplish their real-world goals is through individualized instruction with authentic content, so we are building technology that does just that, allowing us to offer each Voxy learner an experience that is unique to his or her own goals and dreams.
