Description

Think of the embarrassment you feel when speaking a foreign language in front of others. This fear prevents so many people from even trying, so we've developed the only real-time, peer-to-peer digitally immersive game that allows you to talk live with other players without them being capable of judging you while you talk.

History

Viglo’s Inception

A failed attempt to win back the girl he loved had Viglo cofounder, Artie, passed out in the middle of the cold airport floor. Here a chance meeting with a lady who nearly tripped over his body got him a job as a computer programmer in the Philippines, setting the course for Viglo.

Artie wanted to learn the local Filipino language, so he walked the local markets, a pad of paper full of translations as a guide, and just kept trying to speak the local dialect. In only three months he was conversing with the locals in their language; a feat never equaled in half a decade of public schooling, trying to learn French.

After recreating the cycle of failure while teaching English in Thailand at a human trafficking shelter, Artie suggested the possibility of digitally recreating his language learning experience in the Philippines with his former boss, Scott. Scott took Artie’s vague idea and sculpted it into the computer program that is going to fundamentally shift how people learn new languages.
