EasyRead We are creating the first application in the world that teaches people languages through simplification and we are super excited! EasyRead helps young adults and professionals learn new languages while reading content that is of interest to them at their specific difficulty level. Imagine this Japanese businessman. His name is Aki and 10 years ago he moved to the US where he opened up a sushi restaurant. The business is going pretty well, especially with the help from his two daughters who quickly picked up on the English. Aki spends most of his time in the kitchen, and never really learned the language. He doesn’t feel comfortable going out socializing because his English level is so low. He has tried learning through books, but he feels really embarrassed and demotivated having to read children’s books, when he wants to read about food art. We have a solution for Aki. We have developed an algorithm that helps our crowd-sourced team around the world create simplified versions of real publications. This means that Aki will now be able to read Jamie’s Kitchen by Jamie Oliver at a basic level of English – He will enjoy himself while learning a new language. EasyRead provides 3 language levels, which means that when Aki has improved his English he can advance to the next level and keep improving. We are ready to take language learning to the next level.

Started out as brainstorming session for Azfar an intern for Tandemic at the time. After proposing the idea to Azfar for his final assignment I thought it’s an idea that could be taken forward, so approached Azfar to help complete the project. Spent a weekend coding and was able to come out with a very basic Minimum Viable Product. Decided not to move the project forward because : could not see monetary potential as we were targeting a market that was trying to save a much as possible. users and service providers have low probability of owning a smartphone online payment is hard for our target market therefore we would not be able to monetize on the services provided. NOTE: All the above are assumptions by myself, no real life user usage was surveyed, tested or validated. Could potentially be making money from ads. Could just work as a listing system. Have some chance to revive the project if database of service providers could be expanded and the app then promoted through motorbike clubs and learning schools. Interested to revive this...
