We are in Finland, busy at Slush (if you don’t know what we are talking about it’s ok!!)
It’s so nice to get letters like this. Thank you Julia
And stay tuned….we are creating something amazing that will make Bliu Bliu even better.
from Julia W
to Bliu Bliu
this website is amazing. I never realized before how well my reading comprehension is for the languages I’m learning and it gives me confidence that I will be able to reach fluency with much more ease. I’m so glad I found Bliu Bliu!
We got mentioned in SiliconKarne. They wrote about TechCrunch Disrupt and we were there
…Some of them, such as BliuBliu founded by an enigmatic Italian Claudio Santori, (language learning with a real twist, I assure you) could actually be one of the startups to rattle the European ecosystem. More about Startup Lithuania soon in SiliconKarne…
I can’t believe we did not brag about it: Ben Rooney from The Wall Street Journal wrote an amazing review of Bliu Bliu: Learn a New Language With Real Content
Here is my 30 seconds pitch
A cool Review
We have been busy travelling (Stockholm-Vallendar-TelAviv-Berlin-Dublin) so not so much time to update the blog but there are some review we really want to share on the blog.
[...] I think the site is genius. It interpreted a linguistic concept–comprehensible input–in its own unique way, and then delivered a language-learning service that actually works.

Love by Email
Here an email we got few days ago
well it’s helping a lot! Before starting to learn through bliu bliu, I knew
very very little, and now, when I’m in a room surrounded by people speaking
only Lithuanian , I can understand some sentences and some words! Even
though I haven’t been able to practice it very often on the website lately.
Still, everytime I have free time, it’s my go-to website.
So, I believe the more often I use it the better my Lithuanian will get.
The only thing is that I need to learn more grammar/declensions as well.
We are working hard to deliver you the best Bliu Bliu ever.
Hang in there
Claudio and Donatas from Bliu Bliu officially visiting Facebook office in Dublin.
Our logo is there forever
After Facebook we had a meeting at Google.
Quite a busy startup day
We are on the road
We rocked TechCrunch disrupt in Berlin

Learn a new language with real content
After Berlin we went to WebSummit in Dublin. Interesting conference. We will you more when we digest all the business cards.
We are still in Dublin, Monday we have a meeting with Google. Pretty cool right?
And how are you doing ? How is it going on Bliu Bliu?
We acquire language in one way and only one way
when we get comprehensible input in a low anxiety environment
Watch at least the first 5 minutes: Krashen shows with a brilliant example how we all learn languages.
We really love this vintage video of Stephen Krashen. The linguist describes, 30 years ago, what we are able to do now thanks to the available technology.
Basically he is saying that we learn a language when we understand the messages. Bliu Bliu is all about this, making sure you get exposed to messages you can understand. We keep you motivated, boost your self esteem and forget about anxiety, Bliu Bliu is all about having fun while consuming content that you can already understand.
Today one of our Bliusers just hit the target of 100hours spent on Bliu Bliu.
Unbelievable…and well done!
When you get into the right flow Bliu Bliu is extremely engaging
Bliu Bliu got selected to participate to Slush 2013 in Helsinki, Finland.
See you there dear friends. It’s in November, you don’t want to miss it.
and the winner is…Vilnius!
Bliu Bliu won the first place at IdeaLab13, Vallendar Germany. We participated at the Startup Battle of the Cities representing Vilnius and we won. We competed against New York, Rio De Janeiro, Tel Aviv, Paris, London, Los Angeles and many others cities. But there was nothing they could do: Vilnius is the best place for your startup!
We are back at Bliu Bliu HQ in Vilnius and already packing: flying to DLD in Tel Aviv in few hours.
It was an amazing experience and we would like to thanks the organisers of Idea Lab, the stuff, the team behind The Startup Battle of the Cities. Amazing amazing event. So much talent packed in the same room.
Soon we will publish the video of the pitch.
