A More Social Language App

Learning a language today can be a lonely process: tap on gamified apps, listen to headless voices, read textbooks, talk to strangers online. It's hard to learn a language without interacting with people

Many of us have a native speaker around us all the time. Perhaps they're the reason we started learning. I started Coupling to plug our loved ones into our language journey and bring it life

About Me

Hey! I’m Kevin, and my wife Heidi is from China. I’ve been self-learning Cantonese and Mandarin for years. I also speak Vietnamese and some Spanish. I started Coupling to help myself and other couples who have tried to learn each other's languages. Eventually, I hope this brings the world a little bit closer in understanding each other.

I'm a developer and designer. Before I led the A-Frame community, teaching tens of thousands of people to build 3D worlds. In 2018, I founded a VR startup that went through Y Combinator and raised $1.2M. I took a giant leap to tackle language learning. Now I am working 24/7 on Coupling out of my pocket.
