Job Description

If you own an iPhone and can speak a 2nd language, please get in touch, we have a number of short term roles to help create content for our new language community.

Work involves, creating course topics, creating flashcards (text only), recording your voice.... oh, you'll also need to install an IPA (our adhoc version of the current app on your phone, takes about 10 minutes).

In more detail:

for the project you would need to

- install our app (10 mins)
- create an account, except the TOS, upload a picture
- create 10 courses in any 2 languages (English (U.S.), English (UK), French (France), German, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese (Portugal), Danish, Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian, Korean, Japanese, Russian, Polish, Turkish, Ukrainian, Hungarian, Arabic, Thai, Czech, Greek, Hebrew, Indonesian, Malay, Romanian, Slovak, Croatian, Catalan, and Vietnamese)
- Each course needs a name, description
- create and record 25-30 cards for each course, or 50 if you do singular words

This is done directly from the iPhone and takes about 30 seconds for each card, our about 1 minute for slightly longer phrases.

You can make your courses, funny, quirky or whatever you like. You have to come up with your own topics (can be about anything you are interested in - the weirder the better). For example here's a course we have made today (in Spanish, for English speakers)

Dealing with corrupt Argentinian Police Officers
Good morning officer, how can I help you?
I'm sorry did I do something wrong?
can you explain what I did wrong please?
One second while I retrieve my documents and passport?
Can I ask your name please sir?
Sure I can pay you in cash, but are you sure the fine is that much?
Really?! 200 pesos?
I'd like to contest this fine at a higher level, where do you work?
Ok, I'll get my wallet, but I'd like to take a photo of you first
Are you sure this not an imaginary offence?
Please tell me, how do we get off Ruta 14?
I'm sorry I don't carry any cash with me, so that will be impossible
I'm sorry, I don't speak any Spanish, can you speak English?
Thank you officer for your understanding
You look very handsome in your uniform officer
Is there some other way we could work this out
Thank you officer, it's been nice talking to you

If you're interested, please get in touch and we'll send more details.
