EasyRead is an upcoming app that aims to “take language education to the next level.” Targeted at young adults and professionals looking to learn a new language, EasyRead takes content from real publications and simplifies them so language learners can read topics that interest them at their specific level. EasyRead is a great solution for folks who don't have time or money to attend expensive evening classes or aren't too keen on reading children's books. The Malaysia-based startup has developed an algorithm that helps its international crowdsourced team create simpler versions of various books and magazines.
EasyRead is currently “hatching” at The Nest, a co-working space in Kuala Lumpur operated by Mother Goose Venture Developers. The startup is accepting beta testers, and anyone can sign up to be one on its website. EasyRead is the brainchild of a group of young entrepreneurs from Malaysia, Denmark, and Germany who want to “disrupt the language education sector.”
