Studycat’s journey

Way back in 2000, a simple bedroom became the birthplace of a dream that would reach across the globe. A language teacher, an artist, and a game designer — each with a spark of creativity and a shared vision—came together to redefine the journey of language learning.  Armed with just a pen, a sketchpad, a scanner, and a computer, they set out to transform language education from a boring, mundane task into an exhilarating adventure. This small but mighty team laid the foundations of what would become Studycat, a name now synonymous around the world with fun, interactive learning.
