Jerusalem-based start-up MagniLearn has been spreading artificial intelligence (AI)-directed English-as-a-second-language education programs in Korea, Japan and Thailand for the last two years.
Now, they’ve introduced a version of their flagship program tailored specifically to Arabic speakers that will be used in pilot programs in east Jerusalem.
In partnership with the Jerusalem Municipality, the online program will be used in Arabic-speaking schools in east Jerusalem and eventually in Arab communities throughout the country.

Using novel AI, natural language processing, neuroscience, and cognitive principles, MagniLean has developed a "linguistic engine" that understands where learners are struggling and adapts its lessons to match individual needs. The teaching method is interactive and tailor-made, based on dynamically generated free-form exercises in real-time.
The company was founded by 3 Ph..experts from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and is backed and funded by Labs02, OurCrowd, Reliance industries (an Indian multinational conglomerate), and the Israel Innovation Authority.
