Yakety Yak: Revolutionizing English Language Acquisition as a Second Language


The Challenge of Traditional Language Learning


Did you ever study a second language in high school? If you find it challenging to remember more than a few phrases, you’re in good company. A startling 96% of high school graduates are in the same predicament, despite investing years in language courses. Traditional language education often convinces us that we’re not “language people,” a notion that’s far from the truth.


Reimagining Language Acquisition Through an App


How can we change this? Consider the joyful and intuitive way caregivers interact with children. What if this experience could be delivered through an app? That’s exactly what we’ve done with Yakety Yak, an English learning app designed to revolutionize language acquisition.


The Yakety Yak Solution


At Yakety Yak, we’re reshaping this archaic model. Our app’s curriculum is grounded in more than 50 years of scholarly research by Dr. Stephen Krashen, a world-renowned linguist. Infused with insights from neuroscience and backed by our co-founders’ five decades of combined teaching experience, we offer an engaging, interactive, and joyful learning journey right in the palm of your hand.
