More About RealLife

What we do and why  

At RealLife, we create experiences that inspire, connect, and empower learners to step outside the classroom and not just learn English, but to LIVE it. 

We’re on a mission to help as many people as we can live their English in the real world, using English as the gateway to realize their true potential as globally conscious human beings, awake to the life-changing realization that no matter our differences - race, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, or beliefs- no matter what divides us, what unites us is far more powerful.

Our Vision: To create a world beyond borders

We believe that by carefully choosing the right people to join this global adventure- capable professionals who share our mission, who never stop learning, growing, collaborating, and bringing their best selves every single day- we are building a team, a culture, and a company, that is taking a massive 5-10 year vision, and step by step, making it real.  

We’ve already built a compelling brand, far-reaching marketing channels, and a steady flow of eager customers purchasing our fluency courses. And our Youtube Channel, Learn English with TV series, is experiencing explosive growth, with nearly 4 million subscribers and over 115 million views (currently one of the fastest-growing English-teaching channels in the world).

Who We Are 

We are a small group of globally minded teachers, entrepreneurs, and designers, and technologists, spread across the world, but united by a shared vision and set of values.

We are world travelers and language learners, meditators, runners, cyclists, designers, technologists, and life-long learners who are constantly striving to reinvent ourselves and make life and work an exciting global adventure.

We value diversity, so you don’t need to be a copy of us, but if you are curious, with a growth mindset, and would like to work in an environment that cultivates your best self, then you will feel right at home working with us.

The App We're Creating

As the next step to bringing our vision of "a world beyond borders" to life, we’re building the RealLife English App, which will help English learners from around the planet develop real world English fluency in two key ways: 

  • Connecting English learners with other English learners, across cultures, for speaking practice via short, randomized video chats. 
  • Helping learners understand fast-speaking natives by providing an interactive learning experience on top of our already popular podcasts, with interactive transcripts, flashcards, and lessons.
