We are a bunch of self-starters who are passionate about growing the EdTech industry within New Zealand. We focus on technological innovations that are equitable, culturally enhancing, provide immersive learning experiences and above all, fun!

Through Learn English Live we are on a mission to connect every New Zealand classroom with the World.

Kia Ora, Hello and Welcome!


We are a group of New Zealanders who are passionate about connecting our youth with other children from across the globe, to help build and foster long lasting, cross cultural relationships.

SINCE 2016 – Our Beginnings


Learn English Live was born off the back of the amazing work that KidsCoin New Zealand has been undertaking since 2016, when the co-founders realised their vision to better prepare New Zealand children with life, money and technology skills, to grow and be confident in the real world as adults.


Through their innovative and fun educational programme, and a collaboration with the University of Auckland’s MBA, KidsCoin’s vision has now expanded on to the global stage, where we provide opportunity to help connect children with each other from across the globe.


FROM NZ to The World – Where We Are Now


Learn English Live currently operates in our South Korean, Italian & New Zealand markets, with Japan set to come on board from early 2022.
Plans are also underway to further expand into Asia & Europe so watch this space!


If you are interested in being part of our journey we would love to hear from you, so please send us an email or message via one of the links on our webpage


We look forward to connecting with you soon!
