Langful's purpose is to make language learning enjoyable, interactive, and collaborative. We use entertainment paired with technology to assist you in learning foreign languages.
Hello! I am Eric Demers - the founder and sole developer of Langful. I am a computer scientist from Ontario, Canada who enjoys video games, photography, music production, gemology and most importantly natural languages. I have my masters in computer science, and an entreprenurial spirit to complement it.
I started studying languages at around 15 years old, inspired by my cousin who was learning Japanese in Japan. I love anime, and self-studied Japanese for a year before going on exchange to Japan for 5 months - an amazing experience. I took a break from languages for a while after that to focus on school and programming, then started to self-study French. My methods were unorthadox - playing MMORPGs on French servers - but quite effective. I was hungry for more entertaining ways to learn language. This is when the idea for Langful started to form. I then postponed my French studies when I learned about Esperanto. I currently study Esperanto, and ASL. I plan to study French, Toki Pona, and possibly Japanese again once my Esperanto and French are good enough.
