How do you study foreign languages? What methods and/or tools do you use?
What are some of your biggest challenges when learning a language? What do you do to overcome it?
What makes language learning so enjoyable to you?
To help conceptualize ideas for the app, I drew UX sketches to provide a visual of what was going to be communicated with each given interface. This also assisted me to understand how to present certain features for the app.
“I like the colors you chose. Its really pleasant on the eye”
JeParle was born out of a personal passion for learning languages. The process of doing user interviews opened my eyes to other learners' needs when it comes to language apps. While the learners had different motivations and goals for learning a particular language, they shared the challenge of accessing tools to practice speaking and writing skills.
As a next step, I want to explore the impact of improving discoverability for learners' topics of interest. Some ideas include adding a search bar or tagging. I believe that learners will be more motivated and engaged to practice by connecting learners with materials related to their interests.
