EnglEasy - Changing the way people learn

The EnglEasy project has been in the works for over a year, and was a finalist in the MIT Arab Business Plan Competition.  I have been very fortunate to find an excellent team at Startup Weekend out in San Jose to get a real prototype built.  By the end of this weekend, we hope to show you exactly how EnglEasy plans on changing the way people learn.

English is my second language, and I was shocked to learn that kids are learning English exactly the same way that I learned English almost 25 years ago.  With all of this technology available to children such as XBOX, Wii, Nintendo DS, iPad, iPhone, and the Internet, why are children still learning English through books and worksheets?  In fact, the bigger question is, why are children still learning other subjects through books alone?
