When it comes to learning a second language there are two trains of thought — either one was fortunate enough to afford a private tutor, or one comes from an immigrant family where learning a second language was not a luxury, but a necessity. In this multicultural society full of beautiful cultures and languages, the gap between access and opportunity to learn a new language appears to be as wide as a canyon. However, one company is on a mission to bridge this gap with passion, purpose, and precision.
