What is this app about?

Currently, digital language-based learning apps focus on flash-card and spaced-repetition techniques of single words (or short phrases) to teach pronunciation.

articulate.xyz aims to offer a step-change app which shifts the focus of language learning from memorisation to continual usage.

Heil, Wu, Lee, & Schmidt, illustrated in their paper(2016), that apps teach vocabulary in isolated units rather than relevant contexts; minimally adapting to suit the skill sets of individual learners or rarely offering explanatory corrective feedback to learners.


We are building an app to respond to this pressing need.

articulate.xyz monitor continuous reading, listening to speech, guiding lessons, and tailoring learning based on user preference and level.

Research refutes the long-held idea that making errors hampers learning (New Scientist:2018). Asserting that it could help with the learning process.

articulate.xyz provides the ideal platform for getting things wrong in a 'non-judgemental' environment, which in turn helps combat the reluctance to simply 'have a go' at learning a new language.

The goal of articulate.xyz is to have the user speaking and reading the entire time the app is in use encouraging immersion in the language, which in turn will expand vocabulary, usage, punctuation and flow. Increasing confidence and enhancing fluency.
