    Ben & Yun - The beginning of Speechsquare!

Our Story

Speechsquare's underlying technology dates back to 2017. Initially, it was used in a project called Melyngo, founded by Yun and Ben. The goal of Melyngo was to increase the availability of free language resources in Southeast Asia and provide personalized feedback on oral skills. Quite revolutionary when considering major language platforms could only provide binary feedback at that time!

Dirk, who has over 20 years of experience in education, conceived the idea of Speechsquare. He recognized the potential of the AI and understood that it would benefit a wider audience when delivered directly into the hands of educators.

Today, our AI supports 7 Languages and delivers the most sophisticated feedback on the market.
