Portfolio / Online Language Help

Designed and developed iOS and web apps for learning Spanish, French, Italian, German, Portuguese and Hebrew.

After having a designing and developing three web apps to learn Spanish, French and Italian as a hobby, in March 2010 I decided to turn it into a real company.

First, I conducted a series of interviews with Spanish learns in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I asked them about what books, websites, and courses they have taken, which were the most helpful, and what other methods they have employed on their own.

At the same time, I started to sketch some web app designs and produced some high resolution mock ups of the ones I liked best. I then showed these to some of the interview participants to get feedback. From there, I developed the first version of the new web apps.

Meanwhile, I did similar sketches and design work for the accompanying iOS apps.

As time permitted with each project, I iterated on the designs and produced new versions based on guerrilla usability studies.
