Our Story

Language is used as a bridge to make human connections. Yet, new language learners are rarely faced with the opportunity to practice and engage in these connections during their learning process. We are a small team of six people based at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology that aims to bridge the gap between diverse people around the world by creating an opportunity for them to practice languages on the go. We hope to raise funds for our educational app, Lingo2GoGo, so that we can build our innovative app to serve our potential users. We believe that strong language abilities will be central to human interactions at personal and professional levels in the future.

 

我們的故事

語言是人類溝通的主要橋樑,但是在我們學習新的語言的過程中,往往缺乏練習的機會。我們六人是香港科技大學商學院的學生,目標是向世界各地正在學習語言的人,提供一個能隨時隨地練習各種語言的機會,因此在SparkRaise上籌集資金,來建立一個具有教育元素的社交應用程式──Lingo2GoGo。用家能透過Lingo2GoGo,輕鬆地與其他用家進行實時語言練習。我們深信擁有傑出的語言表達能力和掌握多種語言能爲我們帶來多種好處,更有助日後事業的發展。

 

About Lingo2GoGo

Lingo2GoGo is a new mobile learning platform that aims to address this issue by offering a way for users to match other language learners and allowing them to practice, real-time. The Lingo2GoGo application is both social and educational, filling in the current market gap left by existing language-learning platforms by offering a way for users to have fun, short, and casual conversations with other live users. Lingo2GoGo aims to complement the user’s language learning process by providing a means to practice. The application interface will be adaptive and easy-to-use, giving users the opportunity to personalize their user-experience through the languages they want to learn and practice. Lingo2GoGo offers the users a flexible learning schedule, eliminates the fear of speaking in front of a familiar audience, and allows the users to make new connections.

 

關於Lingo2GoGo

Lingo2GoGo是一個全新的流動學習平台,旨在聯繫不同的語言學習者,讓他們能實時地跟另一位用家練習。這個社交平台不但具有教育意義,還向現時語言學習者提供他們所缺乏的練習機會。我們希望能營造輕鬆的交談氣氛,讓用家們進行有趣、簡短和隨意的日常對話。我們會以使用者為中心,提高應用程式介面的易用性。用家可因應個人需要,選擇以不同語言互相學習。Lingo2GoGo一方面能讓用家慢慢習慣使用外語與別人溝通,減低在人前說話的恐懼,另一方面能擴闊社交圈子,結交更多本地以至外地的朋友,進行文化交流。

 

Why Lingo2GoGo

Many existing language-learning platforms lack an interactive pedagogical approach to teaching new languages. Current market focus on teaching vocabulary and grammar, but a drawback is that they are often too difficult to apply in daily life. In addition, users lack the opportunity to practice their new language interactively, let alone in real-time.

Lingo2GoGo offers the unique ability to have real-time practice with a live user, a feature that other language-learning platforms are not offering. Users can chat with each other using our instant messaging and VOIP service to practice their writing and oral speaking skills, with the emphasis of learning a foreign language in a practical way.

 

為什麼選擇 Lingo2GoGo

現時大多的語言學習平台都集中教授大量的詞彙和文法,缺乏互動性。那些詞彙大多難以應用於日常生活中,再加上用家在課堂上缺乏練習機會,大大減低了學習的效率。

相比起其他市場內的平台,Lingo2GoGo的主要特色是能爲用家提供即時學習的機會,他們可以根據個人喜好經由互聯網來進行通訊,訓練寫作和說話能力,讓課堂上學到的知識能得以活用。

 

Objective

We set HKD5,000 as our target because we aim to test the concept of Lingo2GoGo and to see whether the general public supports this idea.

If we can raise HKD15,000, we will be able to make a website version of Lingo2GoGo, which can also be browsed in smartphone.

If we can raise HKD50,000, we will be able to make an app prototype for Lingo2GoGo.
