Reo is a brand new application built from an existing platform, which goal was to create a comprehensive trilingual dictionnary : Tahitian, English, French. The existing dictionary counts 17,000 entries and was based on Tahitian language academy Fare Vanaa. Since last year, we have noticed a significant growth in the online world. In fact all businesses are now trying to be active on the internet which also is relevant to everything related to our Culture.
Founder of Reo is a your Polynesian developper, who always dreamed to create a more simple way to learn his own mother tongue. While studying abroad, he thought of a new modern way to learn the language without having to carry heavy loads of books. Coming back to Tahiti, he made his dream come true, and the application was downloaded more than 50,000 times.
