About Us

We believe students should be able to define their future and that vocabulary, a major indicator of students' success, will help lead the way.

Leksi began as a way to solve my personal frustrations when learning new vocabulary words: I wanted an app that helped me keep track of, organize, and learn words that I encountered. After looking around, I didn’t find anything that stood out and met my expectations, so I decided to take matters into my own hands and create it myself.

As I learned more about the importance of vocabulary and the lack of time and instruction spent in and outside of the classrooms, it felt like I had an opportunity to make a big impact on students if only I could really execute on this idea.

From where do our words come, you ask? Some Teachers create their own, but the majority come from Princeton University's WordNet and the Moby Project.

Happy learning!
