PlaySay is a language learning software company, located in San Francisco, CA in the United States. From 2010, PlaySay offered Facebook applications that allowed users to learn Spanish by photo association. PlaySay wanted an innovative language learning mobile app “with simple adaptive learning for our premium content users,” said Ryan Meinzer, Founder and CEO.
