What people think of FlashAcademy®

About us

We’re a UK Science Park team committed to making language learning amazing!

Days (and often nights) at Learning Labs are spent obsessing over how to improve language learning. Veejay and Richard originally founded Learning Labs with the invention of FlashSticks® language sticky notes, now sold all over the world. The FlashAcademy® platform was then developed in close collaboration with schools, to better support MFL and EAL needs.

Every part of the FlashAcademy® platform is designed and built in-house by our design and development team, making us agile enough to be able to adapt and improve quickly. Our content team are constantly generating new language translations and challenges to improve language learning.

Our education team work closely with schools to ensure they have the best possible experience with FlashAcademy® and relay new ideas back to the team, so we can continue to improve the platform for all users.

What people think of FlashSticks®

"The first aspect that caught my attention was the colour coding - what a fantastic way of remembering gender. I see enormous opportunities for the product inside & outside of the classroom. An excellent kinaesthetic way of learning that is sure to stick in the head of users."

Mary Boucheny - University of Birmingham
