I’d like to share with you the story behind the development of the language learning app, LangJournal.
As a programmer with a keen interest in new technologies and trends, I always aspired to work in major tech companies in Silicon Valley. Realizing the necessity of English proficiency for this dream, I embarked on a solo trip to the US at the age of 28 to experience the vibe of Silicon Valley.
This trip profoundly made me recognize the importance of learning English. Subsequently, I decided to go on a working holiday to Vancouver, Canada, to further improve my English skills.
In Canada, I attended a language school to focus on English. To enhance my learning, I began writing a daily diary in English, which significantly improved my proficiency. However, after graduating, I struggled without anyone to check my daily entries.
Faced with the absence of affordable diary checking services, I conceptualized LangJournal, an app with AI-based correction features. The success of this trial led to the full-scale development of the app. I continued my English diary while spending six months developing LangJournal.
Currently, I am continuously improving the app and working on my own English skills. I hope LangJournal will be a helpful tool for other language learners in their learning process.
