A Space Engineer turned Language Expert and Linguist Come Together…
We’re Gabriel Gelman and Lukas Van Vyve, co-founders of Spring Languages and language enthusiasts. We both speak 6 languages!
Gabriel is a space engineer turned language expert who founded the biggest language learning website in Germany (Sprachheld) in 2014. He co-organizes numerous language conferences (Polyglot Gathering, Expolingua, Follow Languages Day).
Lukas is a linguist who wrote a best-selling Amazon book about learning languages through a method he developed called Conversation Based Chunking™. He has hosted language courses in 4 languages for thousands of students since 2015.
…And Decide to Build a Brand-New Language Learning Platform, Teaching Languages Without Word Lists and Grammar Rules!
In 2020, we decided to use our combined experience to join forces and build the most effective, (linguist- and space engineer-proof) language learning and entertainment platform out there. Designed to help you have effortless conversations in a foreign language, without having to memorize word lists and grammar rules.
How? Simple: through the Conversation Based Chunking™ method we’ve developed and used to both learn 5 foreign languages ourselves and that will ensure you finally stop translating in your head and feel tongue-tied while speaking a foreign language!
Together with our amazing team of teachers, we help you speak fluent Spanish (and other languages) on YouTube and in our Spring Languages Academy!
