Dubai, United Arab Emirates – JAM Language Ltd. in collaboration with LUX HQ Ltd. launches 99.jam.verbos.ingles an iPhone/iPad application for Spanish speakers learning English. This application sets itself apart as it specifically caters to the Spanish speaking population while most applications on the iTunes store focus on generic English learning content.
JAM Language Ltd. has partnered with Lux HQ Ltd. headquartered in London, UK, to create the iPhone and iPad application, which includes audio and a simple flashcard format giving the user a hassle free experience to navigate. 99.jam.verbos.ingles is a follow-up to the launch of 99.spanish.verbs, 99.madarin.verbs and 99.mandarin.nouns released earlier this summer.
“We have been working diligently to create fresh new content specifically for the iTunes App Store which caters to iPhone and iPad users. English language learning content specifically for Spanish speakers is highly sought after yet it is undersupplied and often overlooked. We are here to bridge that gap” Said Maria A. Petit, Co-Founder of JAM Language Ltd.
With 87% of the Hispanics community in the United States of America highlighting the importance of English in order to succeed in the USA, JAM Language Ltd wanted to create an apple application, which catered specifically to them. JAM Language acknowledges that there are more Spanish speakers in the United States than there are speakers of Chinese, French, German, Italian, Hawaiian, and the Native American languages combined.
These statistics are according to the 2010 American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau confirm Spanish is the primary language spoken in USA homes by almost 37 million people aged five or older, a figure more than double that of 1990. These statistics only reinforce the demand for English learning content, which caters specifically to Spanish speakers.
Additionally, JAM Language Ltd. and Lux HQ Ltd. are already working on new content with their sight on Brazilian Portuguese as the latest addition to the JAM Language Learning flashcards series. The Apple application 99.jam.verbos.ingles is packaged in a fun flashcard format for easy memory recall. It takes the user back to the basics with a simple and interactive method to further enhance their vocabulary.

Jaime and Maria met February 2009 in London UK while obtaining their Cambridge University Certificate in English Teaching to Adults (CELTA). They shared a passion for learning new languages. Jaime was en-route to Brazil to teach English and was learning Portuguese while Maria had plans to continue her Arabic language studies in Yemen and teach English as a means to integrate and give back to the local community. During the course they recognized the lack of ‘quality’ and ‘relevant’ teaching tools and resources available to teachers and found they truly enjoyed creating their own stuff not just for teaching purposes but for their own learning enjoyment … thus JAM was born.
