▪ WHAT ?
Speaxel is a game development project focused on language learning. This venture has been bootstrapped by Tutor Linguistico (also The German Tutor).
So far we published one game, to learn the gender of German words: Der Die Das Rockets!
Right now we are working on the next game, called Spirit Sitter.
But we don’t just develop videogames:
We are also creating a polyglot webcomic in multiple languages, with the same title: Spirit Sitter, Ink of Remembrance.
Alessio also wrote an Handbook to help you practice languages with native speakers.

▪ WHO ?
Alessio F. Bona
Polyglot, Language Coach, Game Developer
The founder of this project adores languages. He can’t stop learning, enjoys playing games, and loves to develop new things.
From Alessio himself:
“Over the last three years I have developed some small apps and games for my students to help them learn German.
The experience was so much fun for them and for me, and the gaming aspect also proved to be quite effective.
After these small successes, I decided it was time to invest more resources into game development.
By developing language learning games I hope to contribute to a future where more people will speak many languages and where games will be highly valued in education.”
