Spanish learners get cat ‘appy

Education Cat app

A FELINE-THEMED Spanish language learning app has been launched.

CatAcademy aims to teach users a new language through a series of mobile games and cat-related images.

Cats are scientifically proven to be among the most effective internet ‘memes’ – ideas – so can be used to help people memorise information when it is associated with them.

Ed Cooke, co-founder of the app developer Memrise, said: “Humour is one of mankind’s most fundamental characteristics, but until now there has never been an education tool that makes people laugh.

“With CatAcademy, we took that techniques we used to teach a million people more than a hundred million words on Memrise, and combined that with the cutest and silliest content we could devise.”
