Raised in a biracial and bilingual household, I have experienced the connection and also the separation that language can bring. I was inspired by my father's ongoing struggles to improve his English and the impact this had on our family. Driven to create a powerful solution to unleash the joy of succeeding and connecting through language.

As a first-generation American, the language barrier always served as an obstacle to developing relationships with my loved ones. This now fuels my motivation to help solve this problem by using my passion for emerging and mobile technologies.

With a grandmother who moved from Germany to America at the age of 16, I know how much more of a connection people can have when speaking to each other in a shared language. I'm so excited to share this gift of language with everyone through the Kleo experience.

I was skeptical at first. But then I was blown away! I was speaking Spanish to a woman and was invited into her home - all while sitting in a coffee shop. Kleo lets you practice in everyday situations without ever leaving the country. This will boost your speaking confidence immensely!

It's as close as you can get to having a teacher in the classroom giving you feedback.

Love, love, love the interactive element of immediate feedback and practicing like you're with a live coach . . . or a live friend.

I've been doing Duolingo for 4 years and I've liked it a lot, so, honestly, I was skeptical of another language app. However, I prefer Kleo's format - I like interacting with real people, and it seems to get to the heart of what's important to know.

I like the interaction much more than Babbel and Rosetta Stone. Very engaging. Love love!!
