McFugu

Less Time

McFugu exploits how your brain memorises by planning your exercises at the perfect moments of ‘almost forgetting’.

Better Results

The result is efficiency: less time, less effort, yet better results.

Less Effort

McFugu learns what you know least, and makes sure you practice this more than the stuff you know.

Vocabulary Only

No grammar, no explanations, no understanding; just plain memorising of the world's most spoken words.

Why McFugu?

First Few

Obsiquity, magnanimity, and serendipity are beautiful words, but you don't need them to speak English at all. In fact: 85% of everything you ever say in a language are the same 1.000 words, and it's these that McFugu focuses on.

(Did you know that "the" is the most used English word? It alone accounts for 6% of every word ever spoken!)

Worst First, Best Last

Why spend time on words you already know, instead of using that time to learn new words? As you exercise, McFugu's exercise algorithm learns what words you remember well and what words you are still learning, and shifts its focus on the latter. Optimal use of time and memory!

Forgetting Curve

Every repetition extends the time it takes to forget what you have learned. By planning exercises at the optimal times of 'almost having forgotten', McFugu's algorithm ensures maximum retention with minimal effort.

Jobs

Translators

Long story short

We are looking for translators to partner with that will help us produce and maintain language packs, with the intent of selling these internationally. In exchange for this responsibility, we offer a flat fee for every language pack sold that makes use of the respective language.

If this interests you, then read on!

The Job

It's not a constant one, but it's also not a one-time job: we have a database of vocabulary, to which you will add your language (this is most of the work!), and which you will keep up-to-date, if future changes occur. Also, it is a job you can do from home, next to your other endeavours!

The Reward

So long as you stay affiliated, you will receive a flat fee for every language pack we sell that uses your translations.

The Requirements

We are looking for translators that speak English and another language fluently, and that have an understanding of the cultural context in which the respective language subsides. We also want our translators to be adequate communicators, structural in their habits, and at least studying for a University degree of any kind.
