PlaySay is a language learning app with a gaming platform that focuses on social communication.

The service was originally a Facebook app that blossomed into mobile with its iPhone app. The original service would take your friends status updates and other Facebook features, and use those as your lesson tools. The mobile app integrates feedback from native speakers, helping you work on your pronunciation and conversational skills in an organic way. The service is all about practical knowledge, getting you to a conversational level of fluency as quickly as it can.

PlaySay is four years in the making, and according to the company’s founder Ryan Meinzer, was inspired by a wanting to learn Japanese.Currently the company has $820k in funding, and has just procured a HarperCollins deal.

HarperCollins has the largest foreign language dictionary in the world, so announcing the collaboration is a big step forward for PlaySay.

All these additions go towards the app’s premium addition which is available through the itunes store.
