Who we are
We are Tonguesten - a group of people passionate about language, learning and creativity. We created ReBeats because we believe that language learning should be as creative as language itself. We believe that the way language is currently taught - in blocks that are easy to teach, not easy to learn - is plain wrong, and so we are trying to do something about it, using technology with user experience at its core.
Our first game
Our first game ReBeats, aimed at 8-15 year olds who are learning English, is now in private beta, and it was created with the challenge of making an app where the experience is so fun and easy that all the learning happens without the user even realising.
Building a community of believers
We seek to create a community of people who love languages and culture - to become the online home for people who believe that creativity and education belong together.
We would like to reach out to EdgeRyders to find like-minded people who can help us to understand what it means to build a community with giving at its heart, and what kind of resources it takes to make something with real value for the community.
What We Believe
We have just outlined our core beliefs on community in a blog post here, which we’d love to hear your thoughts on.
How You Can Get Involved
We fundamentally believe that a world where the default approach is Google Translate is not a world that we want to live in - that the easier is becomes to translate experiences into our native culture, the more we will lose the ability to understand each other in any depth.
We hope very much our ideas and beliefs find a spiritual home here on EdgeRyders, and we’d love to hear from any like-minded folks who want to get involved, and help us to build a community for creative cultural activists.
