On July 5 1991 two students of the Poznan University of Technology are founding the company SuperMemo World. They are young, intelligent and they have a revolutionary idea – computers, that are still a rarity then, should help people learn! Computers should save their time, make learning convenient and most importantly - effective. Krzysztof and Piotr set an objective - finding out a way for EVERYONE to be able to learn any number of dates, definitions, names, surnames, words, or concepts - in short, everything. Shortly the SuperMemo algorithm is created and soon after also the first algorithm-based computer programs designed for learning. Simultaneously, the inventors of the SuperMemo method are of the opinion that their creation is salvation for those who are unsuccessfully trying to master a foreign language.
Today, the company's mission is to provide its software to users with convenient and efficient solutions for support in learning that are based on a unique method of repetition optimising. SuperMemo World keeps pace with the constantly growing mobile technologies. We offer our most popular language courses to mobile devices operating on Android and iOS as well as for PC's and online. This allows the users of mobile devices to take advantage of any seemingly unfavourable circumstance to ground knowledge! If on a tram or in a long queue to the checkout you will see a person who, as if hypnotised, is looking at their smartphone, you most probably have come across a SuperMemo-User.
SuperMemo is one of the brands which make Poland known worldwide. The company is actively taking part in all major book and language fairs as well as those oriented towards new technologies: London Book Fair, Frankfurter Buchmesse, BETT, and Online Educa. The company cooperates with publishers and distributors all around the world. Currently our products are being customised for foreign markets including Brazil, Turkey, Russia, Ukraine and the USA. On the Polish market we have won a group of reliable partners among companies and institutions with whom we have established permanent cooperation.
The company is facing further challenges - the generations of increasingly mobile people who want to begin using any foreign language in a fast and efficient way. Our constantly growing team of IT and language specialists are preparing new courses and application that implement the SuperMemo method. Our goal and mission is not only responding to the needs of an increasingly dynamic lifestyle, but also promoting the idea of language learning. This mission will successively be carried out by providing tools for efficient learning, so that the adventure with a foreign language or any other area becomes a pleasure.
Dear Users! Wherever you are, wherever you are going, remember that SuperMemo can be there with you: on your PC, on the iPhone, at the e-learning platform, or on Facebook. In SuperMemo we know that anyone can learn a foreign language and memorise as any amount of information.
"SuperMemo successfully controls one of the most important characteristics of effective learning, namely regularity. It was not uncommon for me, despite a busy day, to run the program for 20 minutes before midnight to make it on time with the repetitions. I have to admit thatI have been so much satisfied with working with the SuperMemo method that it was the iPhone version of SuperMemo courses which made me buy this particular type of phone."
Michał Mazur, Warsaw, Poland
"I am very happy with the SuperMemo courses I study, especially the course of Polish for English speakers. At the beginning I was skeptical of such a flashcard based approach. Soon, however, I changed my mind. What is unique about SuperMemo is having the whole package: on one side, a full course, with texts, audio, grammar explanations, on the other side flashcards to learn and repeat in a structured way."
Leonardo Poli, Florence, Italy
“My first words – course is absolutely brilliant, funny and attractive course. My daughter (5) got better English pronunciation now than I have. She is obsessed with getting 10 stars in every exercise. The course is just like a cartoon/game, but after couple of months you see great progress. Another advantage is that you can start and stop making exercises at any moment of time which is vital for children once they are tired.”
