    Pablo fell in love with learning languages while he was living in Japan. After having learned Japanese to proficiency without doing any sort of traditional studying, he decided that a better way of learning languages is possible and decided to look for it. After spending one year in Bangkok learning Thai and experiencing a much more natural input-based method to learn languages, he decided that he wanted to help popularize CI-based methods. In 2017 he finally decided to start producing content that learners all over the world can enjoy, and to serve as an example for people all over the world to teach their own language.
