Spoiler title
I am a scholar and linguistic passionate about learning languages and helping others do the same. I hold a PhD in Medieval Studies from Cornell University, an MPhil in Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic from Cambridge, and a BA in Modern Language sand English from the University of Maryland Baltimore County. I know 20+ languages to varying degrees of fluency and founded my startup Linguisticator in 2013 in order to share my love of languages with others. The inspiration behind my startup lies with the memory techniques used by medieval monks to recall reams of scripture. Learners who use Linguisticator’s courses are taught how to build a memory palace in which to store the entire grammar of the language they are learning. In 2013, the UK’s Ministry of Defence gave us a grant to develop a scalable English language course for use in North Africa. This was trialled successfully in Tripoli, Libya, and actually performed better than traditional classroom-based instruction. Our English course is currently available free of charge to Arabic-speaking refugees who want to learn English. We have since created courses for Arabic (MSA), French, German, Italian and Spanish. We are working on courses for Farsi, Portuguese and Russian at the moment. Learn more about Aaron Ralby on Crunchbase…
