We, as lovers of STEM, have noticed a gap in the market when it comes to foreign languages. There are plenty of programs which can teach you how to count or describe the weather, but what about skill-based learning? We wanted to create a product which helped students interested in fields ranging from technology to business learn the skills they want, in the language they want to do it. For those people who don't have a specific field in mind, they can immerse themselves in a 6 month program. Where they can practice hands-on, see career paths in that field, while also learning another language!
What it does
There are two ways you can use our website:
- Expand your knowledge on a certain field plus learning it in another language
- Or try something new and find your passion by taking our quiz and immerse yourself in a new field! You may opt to join this feature for one course, or a whole 6 months!
How I built it
We built this website using Node.JS, MySQL, Express, Semantic UI, body-parser, ejs, and jquery. We created the presentation with www.canva.com.
Challenges I ran into
We were challenged by time, and as a result were only able to reach out to Russian speaking professionals, and were unable to fully build out the language learning feature in the time-frame.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We are proud to have created a comprehensive business model, created a very user-friendly interface for our website, and to have received support from potential tutors.
What I learned
What's next for PassionLearn
In the future, we hope to build out Passion Learn’s language and course offerings, along with creating a social media presence and continuing to network with industry professionals.
