Voxy is a new way to learn a language that is designed to fit seamlessly into our daily lives. Voxy's integrated web/mobile/SMS platform uses relevant, up-to-date, real-world content of a student's choosing (sports, pop culture, news, etc.), and converts it into fun, addictive, bite-size lessons that are accessible anywhere, anytime. This unique approach is based on leading pedagogic theories of motivation and learning; the Voxy method increases frequency of study and accelerates learning by teaching in-context. With Voxy's adaptive system, each learner's curriculum is personalized, and learning itself becomes an interactive game. Voxy is currently focused on teaching English to native Spanish-speakers in the US, but will be expanding into new markets and new languages to reach the billions and billions of language learners across the globe.
Voxy was founded in February 2010 and launched in public beta at TechCrunch Disrupt in September 2010 as one of the most disruptive technology startups of the year. Voxy is headquartered in New York City. For more information, visit voxy.com.
