About

The biggest obstacle that every language learner faces when speaking a new language is the fear of feeling judged or embarrassed when you make a mistake. 

Language learning apps today are primarily built around only using your fingers, instead of helping you speak in real-life conversations.

Rype GO is reinventing the way we learn a new language by using AI-powered speaking lessons to help you speak confidently, without feeling judged.

You may have also seen us on the following media outlets and websites: 

Stay fully engaged with our beautiful and interactive video lessons

Over 250+ video lessons that we've produced in our studio in 4K resolution. Every video lesson is interactive, informative, and beautifully produced to keep you engaged.


Learn what you actually care about

Most of the language learning content out there are outdated. We've designed our curriculum from the ground up to make it fun, relevant, and relatable for today's generation of learners, such as how to talk to your AirBnB host, asking someone out, and ordering food at restaurants.

Become conversational fluent (without feeling embarrassed)

Feel confident from day 1 by practicing your speaking skills from the comforts of your own home, going for a walk, or anywhere you want.

Real-life conversations (AI-powered speaking lessons)

No more boring flashcards and quiz-format exercises using only your fingers. Our speaking lessons feel like real-life conversations you'll have with a friend, family member, or co-worker. 

Real-time feedback (using speech recognition technology)

You'll get real-time feedback via our speech recognition technology. As you use the app more, we'll improve our accuracy, and your speaking lesson experience will continue to improve. It's like having a language coach in your pocket.

Get accountability & faster progress with professional teachers

Learn even faster by booking live 1-on-1 lessons with handpicked professional teachers in our network.  

Fully customized learning experience

With 1-on-1 live learning, you can get fully personalized lessons that are catered towards your goals, needs, and proficiency level.

It's not just different. It's Language Learning 4.0 

As we already have developed much of the content around these languages below (and based on popular demand), we'll launch our beta with these 3 languages.

Next languages we'd like to add

After we launch our 1st languages, we'll actively work towards launching the following languages. To determine which language(s) we launch first, we'll ask our early pledgers to vote to help us decide the order.

What do I get if I pledge?

Risks and challenges

The main challenge is probably having arrived to this point, and the ups and downs our team has been through from day one. We've learned a ton from this journey thus far and we're excited to take our years of lessons towards introducing Rype GO.

At this point, we've got an established company with a talented team that has over twenty years of combined experience launching apps and companies. From a content perspective, since we're producing in-house, we don't run the risk of copyright issues.

Delivery wise, since we're launching a digital app, we don't have the same problem as other Kickstarter campaigns that depend on manufacturing partners to ship their products. However, building an app from scratch is not an easy task. Despite having extensive experience, there will be inevitable setbacks that our product team may face. We've also been able to meet our film production timeline, but we're aware that delays could occur at any point. Our estimated delivery time is a conservative timeline and we've buffered extra time for potential issues that may come up as we develop the app.

We've also set stretch goals to add more languages because we want to be able to serve as many people as possible. If we meet our fundraising stretch goals, we don't foresee any major problems that we wouldn't be able to overcome to add those languages. The hardest part that takes up the most time is setting up the architecture and design of the app, and the post production of our video content.

With that said, since we're going to allow beta testers to have early access as soon as it's ready, backers should still be able to use it in its beta version, which shouldn't cause problems.
