About schoLINGUA

Info

schoLINGUA is a language learning platform developed by Emanuel Ruckstuhl. The aim of the platform is to facilitate the learning and teaching of languages. At the moment we offer three tools which help language learners to master grammar: A conjugation trainer, conjugation tables and a cloze exercise editor.

schoLINGUA is aimed at both autodidacts and teachers with their classes. Learning content can easily be created, managed and shared. Within an educational context, the platform is therefore very well suited for individually customized homework.

History

Initial work on a French verb conjugation trainer has started in 2013. After intense examination of present language learning programs and learning platforms, the platform schoLINGUA was developed over the course of the year 2014. Behind the project stands the conviction that e-learning methods can lead to sustainable learning success.

schoLINGUA will continue to grow and sets its focus on...
