The Jalup App
This is exactly what language learning has been like for decades. This is why language learning is boring and people fail.

Which one is it?
Language learning is a mental game that thrives on challenge and reward. Jalup doesn’t just plop a fun game on top of the language. It engages the brain’s natural urge to solve problems by making learning the language itself the game.
No spoon fed translations. No “choose your answer.” No repetitive memorization. No more boredom disguised as excitement.
