What's New

Hugs, not bugs.

That’s what we’d prefer. Unfortunately, bugs happen. So, in those rare moments we’re not enjoying the warm embrace of a hug, we’re working hard to fix what needs to be fixed and introducing new features that improve your learning experience.

Did you know?
There are about 7,000 languages in the world.
