Two young language loving entrepreneurs from Bedford entered the Dragon’s Den on Sunday 4th February – but you’ll have to watch to find out if they were successful!
Best friends Alex Somervell and Jonny Pryn founded One Third Stories whilst at University, to make learning a language as simple as reading a bedtime story.
Jonny grew up struggling to learn French from a Cockney accented French Teacher, while Alex grew up bilingual in Paraguay; spurred on by their different experiences, they set out to change the way children learn languages.
The innovative pair create subscription boxes designed to help children learn languages like French and Spanish through colourfully illustrated books which start in English and gradually introduce foreign words, ending dans une autre langue.
