Voxy is the only language learning program that is based 100% on your real-life daily activities.

By using mobile technology and gaming mechanics, Voxy turns the media that you consume, the conversations that you have, and the activities you do into powerful contextual language lessons that are available anytime, anywhere. Voxy is currently focused on teaching English to Spanish and Portuguese speakers, but is rapidly expanding into new markets and new languages to reach the billions of language learners across the globe.

Voxy launched in public beta at TechCrunch Disrupt in September 2010 as one of the most disruptive technology Startups of the year and has been recognized for its innovative approach by The New York Times, CNN Money, and others.
