What is EduLift?

EduLift combines tried and tested pedagogic methodology with innovative software, web applications and print resources in order to improve the way we learn.

The launch of NihongoUp in 2009 enabled thousands of students worldwide to engage with the Japanese language in a way that was never before possible with its revolutionary approach to the teaching and practicing grammar, vocabulary and kanji.

In late 2011, building on the success of NihongoUp, LinguaLift opened its doors to learners of the Japanese, Russian and French languages, with its innovative interactive textbook, advanced learning applications, and online community of like-minded learners.
