Learn English by speaking with an AI

Toko helps English learners in East Asia achieve speaking fluency. Through our mobile app, learners engage in short, realistic conversations with an AI and receive feedback on their grammar. With over 150 topics, learners can practice real-world scenarios ranging from small talk to workplace discussions. Toko offers a low-pressure environment to help learners build up their confidence. We make language fluency accessible to everyone - not just those with the means to meet 1:1 with a tutor. In Taiwan (our first market), Toko is ranked #3 in the App Store for Education!
