With our flagship event of the year — the hackathon — approaching, our team of designers, developers and managers came together to improve upon our existing project scoring application.
Since I’ll be going on exchange to Yonsei University in Seoul, I decided to brush up on my product design and Korean language skills through this side project.
The inspiration for this project stemmed from a pain point in my own language-learning journey — vocabulary. I always found it to be the most difficult component of learning any language since it tends to require rote memory and a lot of effort.
I decided to try and address this pain point by designing a Korean vocabulary learning system that requires less effort to commit words to memory.
