Ongoing Refold Projects
Partnerships with Schools
One of the major goals of Refold is to integrate the input-based methodology into traditional classroom curriculum. We are cultivating partnerships with various in-person and online language programs.

We have a lot of members of our community who are interested in learning English as their target language. With that in mind, we have created an English deck called GEN1K as a base that can be easily translated to other languages. We are in the process of creating those translations so that anyone can learn English, no matter what their Native Language is!
Second Language Acquisition has not been thoroughly studied and most of the information we have is anecdotal. We are working on putting numbers behind the stories.
Got numbers to share? Email us at email@example.com with your CSV file and some information about your language learning journey!

Ongoing Community Projects
Using dubbed media for immersion is difficult when the subtitles and audio don’t match. The Immersion Kings project has been working on transcribing dubs to create matching subtitles for immersion.

Content Collection & Recommendation System
As a small community, collecting resources in Google Docs was a fine solution. As we have grown, our documentation has become disorganized and confusing for new learners. With the help of our Data Wizard Josh, we are working on centralizing and organizing our resources, as well as building a tool to make intelligent content recommendations for learners.
Better Grammar Guides
Most grammar guides out there are written to get learners speaking first. This causes them to be confusing and packed with so much unnecessary information. Comprehension-focused grammar guides can solve this problem since they would be smaller and focused only on helping learners pick up the basics.
User feedback tells us that our Roadmap is on the wordy side. We want to start creating short, digestible videos explaining key immersion ideas to new learners. We predict this will improve the onboarding process and help new learners feel less overwhelmed by the information.
