Curiosity Media is on a mission to teach the world Spanish and English for free! Our flagship product, SpanishDict, is the world’s most popular Spanish learning product. Each year, more than 100 million people learn and improve their Spanish on SpanishDict’s website and apps. We’ve built the Internet’s most comprehensive database of Spanish and English translations, conjugations, example sentences, pronunciations, synonyms, and antonyms. We combine our extensive reference resources with interactive vocabulary quizzes, conjugation drills, and native-speaker video lessons to provide an unparalleled one-stop shop for students and adult Spanish learners. We also proudly offer all of SpanishDict’s features on inglés.com, an emerging product in the English learning space.
SpanishDict was founded by Jeremy and Martha Cummings in 1999 as one of the Internet’s earliest Spanish-English dictionaries. Shortly after, Chris Cummings became CEO of SpanishDict and, under his direction, the product grew to serve more than 100 million users each year, making it the world’s largest Spanish-English learning website! Over time, other products were created by Curiosity Media, which generated rapid growth for the company.
In 2013, Curiosity Media launched Fluencia, which empowers users to learn at their own pace with interactive exercises, step-by-step instruction, and personalized feedback.
In 2021, Curiosity Media launched inglés.com, SpanishDict’s sister site for Spanish speakers learning English.
In May 2022, Curiosity Media was acquired by IXL Learning. Since its founding in 1998, IXL Learning’s mission has been to improve learning for all and to apply technology in thoughtful and innovative ways to unlock students’ innate curiosity, creativity, and desire for knowledge. IXL Learning helps students all over the world learn more, and love learning, by creating deeply engaging and fulfilling educational experiences. This mission resonates with Curiosity Media’s goal to bring free, high-quality reference and education products to every Spanish-English learner in the world.
Curiosity Media is all about the people who work here.
