BigDNT: Skill Silo

There are few skills that add value to your career like learning a language, but it’s often easier said than done with expensive on-line platforms that force you to learn on your own… in a silo. But, what if *you* were the silo, not the on-line platform? That’s where Skill Silo comes in, a one-on-one video conferencing platform that allows students of all ages to learn a language with custom tailored curriculum from anywhere in the world through live video tutoring.


During Dallas New Tech on May 3rd, Josh Aharanoff, introduced the problems with language learning platforms citing that classroom-style teaching is ineffective for the on-the-go, albeit older, student. The course times are fixed, the curriculum lacks customization, and the teaching style fails to promote conversation. (You know… the face-to-face stuff that people sometimes do these days.)

Skill Silo changes the learning game by working with native teachers to create individualized curriculum for hungry minds… conversational medical Spanish in 20-lessons? Bring it!

Learn anything, from anywhere, via a live tutor with a click of a button. That’s Skill Silo and right now it’s for 12-languages. Find out more at or by watching the video above.
