Lingua Attack is an extension of English Attack, the online platform that has helped over a million users to improve their English with engaging lessons and games based on real-world material from thousands of video clips.

What makes Lingua Attack different to English Attack is that in addition to English, it also offers six other languages: French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese and Chinese, with new types of exercises for complete beginners, as well as new exercises for those who want to improve their accent.

Lingua Attack platform was designed having in mind also the impaired people (visual and hearing disabilities) to help them to learn new languages, by integrating the RGAA3 standard in France that’s based on WCAG 2.0 international standard.

Also, Lingua Attack keeps users engaged with different types of challenges that allow them to gain more points and obtain badges by completing various skills. 

In order to help the users achieve better results, we give them the possibility to hear the pronunciation of the expressions they learn, by using the iSpeech service.

A challenge for us was to implement personalized dashboards for our users. The dashboard will suggest exercises and assignments for a user according to their preferences and level. 

The design of the English Attack is completely different in the new platform, now being more attractive and modern. With the use of Amazon S3, the media used on the website is always available and most important, secure against attacks and hardware failures. Also, the highly customizable VideoJS framework is used to play the videos on the website. 

For protecting the website and API against common web exploits we use AWS WAF, which creates and maintains security rules with the integrated API

We improve the overall performance of the website by maintaining a healthy flow of messages to the database with the help of AMAZON SQS.

Moreover, the platform is supported by native mobile applications on both iOS and Android. Deep integration with platforms is achieved by using platform APIs. All learning features and interactive content from the web application are available on mobile apps too.

Lingua Attack offers some tests and the possibility to print certificates for those who want to test their language level. Also, if users come across a word or expression they do not know, the user can hover over it to get a translation in any language. The interface can be set to the user’s preferred language.
