Tuner is joining forces with Korean mobile product developer, Qualson, to develop a new app to make learning English fun.

Set to launch in October in South Korea, with plans to roll out in other Asian markets including Japan, Taiwan and Southeast Asia, the app will offer kids and adults the chance to improve their fluency in listening and speaking English through Cartoon Network shows and characters.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Qualson to enable more Koreans and Cartoon Network fans to watch their favourite shows and improve their English at the same time. We believe that learning is always more effective when it’s also fun,” said Ron Lee, general manager at Turner Korea.

“Qualson is the perfect partner for Turner to engage more Koreans given their proven track record.”

Shows including We Bare Bears, The Powerpuff Girls, Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball, Uncle Grandpa and Regular Show will all feature on the app.

Sooyoung Park, CEO for Qualson, added: “We are very proud to be partnering with Turner to develop a new learning app. Cartoon Network has some of the most iconic animation shows in the world including in Korea and across the Asia region.

“The new app aims to capitalise on the popularity of these shows to make learning English fun and engaging like never before.”
