Oslo, Norway (March 24, 2021) – Kahoot!, the global learning platform company, today announced that the Kahoot! mobile app is now available in seven languages—English, Spanish, French, Brazilian Portuguese, Norwegian, with the addition of German and Italian today, making Kahoot! more accessible for its global user community.

“We at Kahoot! are committed to helping everyone unlock their learning potential, no matter where they live or what language they speak,” said Eilert Hanoa, CEO, Kahoot!. “Enabling users to experience Kahoot! in more languages is key to making our platform’s learning benefits more accessible and relevant for our users around the world. We’re excited to now offer the Kahoot! mobile app for free in seven languages as we continue in our mission of making learning awesome for our users worldwide.”

Empowering learners globally with the Kahoot! experience

Since launching in 2013, Kahoot! has grown from a classroom learning tool to a favorite platform for connecting classroom-based and virtual learning, supporting independent and home-based study, engaging company teams and bringing families and friends together, in-person or online. Now, users will be able to navigate the Kahoot! mobile app, host live Kahoot! games, assign challenges, share and join games in seven languages, creating a more intuitive experience for global users across all learning contexts.

“Kahoot has given me the opportunity to help my students learn in a deeper and more fun way,” said Maurizio Esposito, an Italian language teacher in Dornbirn, Austria. “Having the app in the German language is also perfect for approaching students who have difficulties with English due to their age.”

Making learning awesome for all ages worldwide

With Kahoot!, educators can make learning fun and engaging for their students, whether in a physical or virtual classroom. Students can also complete games at their own pace with Kahoot! challenges, practice independently at home with flashcards and study modes, as well as connect with peers virtually in study leagues. Families and friends can find, create and play kahoots on any topic and suited for any age, while professionals can use Kahoot! to create interactive presentations, engage work teams in e-learning, events and more.

As many schools around the world reopen with hybrid learning—mixing classroom-based instruction and virtual learning—digital education platforms that connect and engage students anywhere are now more important than ever. As learning, working and socializing continues virtually or in-person with social distancing, Kahoot! has seen extraordinary growth in usage globally, with more than 1.5 billion players in 200 countries in the last year.
