A native mobile app designed to empower users to learn new vocabulary.

As part of my UX fundamentals course I had to design a mobile app for language learning, focusing primarily on user research and UX design.

During my time serving as a language facilitator at a University in Saudi Arabia, I discovered there was a giant gap in the market for an English language learning app catering for Saudi students.

Project Insights

  • I learnt that it is important to keep the design simple and to focus more on functionality during the early stages of the Design Thinking Process.

  • By applying a user-centered approach in UX design I was able to empathise with the user and create an engaging experience for them.

  • I really enjoyed the user research and testing stages. It was rewarding for me to see how participants interacted with something I created.
