Mooveez is the developer of a unique mobile app for teaching English and other languages using movies. The app won the British Council’s award for the Most Innovative Digital Product for language instruction in 2016. After successful testing of the app’s use and functionalities in the Czech Republic, the product was launched abroad in early 2018, mainly in Russia and Western Europe. Currently the app is available to mobile phone and tablet users in more than 20 countries worldwide.
Mooveez uses feature films, series and documentaries to teach English. People naturally have fun watching them, which means they adopt comprehensive language know-ledge much more effectively. Even large Hollywood studios provided the copyrights for use of their blockbusters. Each movie is accompanied by word-for-word professional translations, audio flash cards with selected phrases, cultural explanations of the plot and relevant grammar exercises. The app can be used for self-study or as a comprehensive teaching material for schools and lecturers. Currently it offers several dozen blockbusters, series and popular science documentaries adapted for English language teaching. Funding acquired through RSBC’s entry into the company will be used mainly to add other languages to the app and for further expansion e.g. to the USA, UK and Japan.
