Today, we announced that Rype will be launching a new product: Rype GO. We launched a Kickstarter campaign that shares how it works, with exclusive perks and discounts for being an early supporter. We’d love your support.
Why another language app?
This is one of the first questions we hear whenever we share that we’re launching a new product.
One, we would only be launching a new product if it’s significantly different from what’s out there and if it solves a core problem that isn’t being met with existing solutions. Rype GO does both. Two, we’ve listened to our existing members about their need of a complementary product (to their live 1-on-1 lesons) that offers a core currriculum they can follow. Three, we knew that to fulfill our mission to connect 1B people around the world, it was necessary to offer a product that can appeal to a mass audience (pricing wise).
The core problem
The biggest obstacle that every language learner faces when speaking a new language is the fear of feeling judged or embarrassed when you make a mistake.
The problem with most apps out there is that you’re using just your fingers to ‘speak’ a new language. Meaning, they don’t focus on solving the biggest hurdle for language learners.
Rype GO: Speak any language from day 1 (without being judged)
With Rype GO, we’re redefining the way we learn a new language by using AI-powered speaking lessons to help you speak confidently, without feeling judged.
We wanted to modernize the journey of learning a new language that today’s generation of learners can relate to.
Here’s how we’re doing this.
Watch beautiful, bite-sized video lessons
Instead of learning how to spell pineapple, you’ll start your joureny by learning fun, relevant, and relatable topics for today’s generation of learners. Topics include how to ask someone out, ordering at a restaurant, and making small talk at parties.
Each video is 3–5 minutes long shot in 4K quality at our studio.
AI-powered real-life conversation lessons
We’ve designed our speaking lessons to feel like real-life conversations you’ll have with a friend, co-worker, or a native speaker you just met. This allows you to practice real scenarios that you would experience in your everyday conversations.
Judgement-free learning experience.
This may be one of the most important benefits of Rype GO. Every language learner has the ability to become a fluent speaker. But most never make it past day 30 because of their fear of feeling judged.
It’s a real problem, we get it. Especially for introverts (which I can relate to).
With the option to practice from anywhere you are, at anytime, you can make as many mistakes, without anyone knowing.
A language coach in your pocket (real-time feedback)
Rype’s speech recognition technology will give you real-time feedback so you can know whether you’re on the right track. It’s like having a language coach that’s there with you 24/7.
Live 1-on-1 interaction
Lastly, you can get personalized help and real human interaction on-demand with our professional teachers. By fully integrating Rype GO with our teacher marketplace, teachers will know the student’s previous learning history, progress, and where they’re struggling specifically.
We couldn’t be more excited to bring something new and fresh to the language space, and we’d love for you to join our journey.
Our Kickstarter campaign is live now, and early supporters can get up to 70% off, and become one of the first users to gain access.
If you’ve already been a supporter, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
