SAN DIEGO, Nov. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Nulu, Inc. (www.nulu.com) announced the launch of its ground-breaking language learning application for native Spanish speakers in Mexico (www.nulu.mx). For the tens of millions of Mexicans trying to learn English without success, there's now hope. Nulu's simple but effective solution is to convert fresh news content into high-quality language-learning material and deliver it across mobile and social platforms for an engaging and sustainable experience.
Nulu first launched in the U.S. and has received rave reviews from users and experts in language learning. "It's a great program…based on sound pedagogical principles for true second-language acquisition," said Karen Breiner-Sanders, an associate professor of Spanish & Hispanic Studies at Georgetown University.
Nulu makes language learning easy and fun by allowing: (a) learners to read fresh, engaging content in the language they're studying with first-rate human translations into their first language and native pronunciations of every word only a click away; (b) learners to select new vocabulary words and phrases from the content for seamless integration into a personalized and maximally efficient review system; and (c) learners to discuss what they've read with fellow language learners and native speakers of their target language. And, most importantly, Nulu is practical -- learners need only spend 5 to 10 minutes per day, can access the application on any computer or mobile device, and can currently use the application for free.
"We're excited to have native Spanish speakers learning English in Mexico join the large number of English speakers learning Spanish in the U.S. using Nulu on the path to fluency," says Eitan Geft, Nulu's co-founder and CEO. "We believe that each of these groups will enjoy reading and listening to fresh news stories anytime, anywhere, every day, and that together the two groups will provide real value to each other as they discuss our stories in our Facebook-based communications platform."
About Nulu: Nulu addresses a global problem shared by 1.5 billion people: achieving English fluency. Our solution is to convert fresh news content into high-quality language-learning material and deliver it across mobile and social platforms for an engaging and sustainable experience.
