While Nati Gossaye was learning French with the different language apps he found, he noticed it was quite tough to learn on those platforms. So when Facebook launched its Messenger Bot Challenge for Middle East and Africa, he decided to build a gamified chatbot that teaches French. His startup LangBot won the challenge with a prize money of $20,000 out of 1,000 entries submitted. So far, it has partnered with Ethiopia’s major French school; Alliance Ethio-Francaise to test its chatbot with its students. It also won the Ethiopian leg of the 2017 Seedstars competition. Nati Gossaye is one of a number of innovators who are building the future of education in Ethiopia, a country that was ranked one of the world’s worst education systems.
