Free & open source language learning app!

Languages without borders

By collecting public language data, Openwords can create high quality lessons for nearly any language.

Social Enterprise

Openwords is a social enterprise. We believe education should be free *and* open source. We'll always remain open and committed to learner privacy.

Customizable lessons

Instructors and schools should control curricula. That's why all lessons are customizable. We've created a lesson builder to allow teachers to express their curricula in the classroom. You can also simply adopt existing lessons.

  • Always have open Data

    Openwords app and educational content will be free & open source. This means everyone owns the Openwords educational content.

  • Provide flexible learning for diverse communities

    Openwords is open source, to empower teachers to provide OERs (open educational resources) for their students. We can also leverage open data sources, like Wiktionary. What language are you interested in?

  • Remain economically viable, will be free

    Openwords is building revenue models that respect learner privacy, respect the sacredness of education, and sustain our open data purpose.

Openwords Application

Openwords has different learning modules. Including single word problems like hearing and simple review. We also have simple sentence construction problems, conjugation and fill in the blank problems. We're even working on a handwriting learning module for Chinese (utilizing the Wikimedia Stroke Order project!). As we (or the community) develop new learning modules or games, we can add them in.

Importantly the teacher will be free to express the curricula they desire.

The Openwords app has a minimalist design. We believe languages themselves are beautiful. We also want to bring the community into the design process as we refine our current design. We're happy to share more about our design concepts; we've thought deeply about these issues, but the process is open to you.

We have an awesome team!

People having been working with us coming from different fields of informatics, design, language, management and many others.
All of the money raised in our crowd-funding campaign will be used to support curricula developers.
