Voxy - Learn a language from life | Smart Phones and  Language Learning | Scoop.it

We don’t believe learning should be based on static content, memorizing verb charts, grammar rules, or learning vocabulary words out of context. That’s why we create engaging exercises with authentic language used by native speakers. We don't write lessons for you, we curate real-world discourse and turn it into lessons adapted to your language level.
