Cookie Langs, a casual-learning app and artificial-intelligence developer based in South Korea, has signed a licensing agreement with Oxford University Press (OUP) to use the Oxford 2000 wordlist: a vocabulary list that contains the essential words that all primary English as a Foreign Language (EFL) learners need to learn. Cookie Langs will use the Oxford 2000 in a real-time multiplayer gaming app called Battle App. The app pits learners against each other in race-against-the-clock games that test their English vocabulary knowledge and retention.   

"We are always looking to bring our market-leading resources for vocabulary learning to new audiences and are delighted to see the Oxford 2000 words list being used in such an innovative way by Cookie Langs,” says Joseph Noble, head of licensing, OUP English Language Teaching. 

The Oxford 2000 is the latest wordlist in a series that includes the Oxford 3000 and Oxford 5000. The wordlist covers around 55-60 topics that typically occur in primary/elementary school learning materials including “content” topics (animals, the environment), “functions” (classroom language, describing things) and “notions” (facts, ideas and opinions, time). 

"Using the Oxford 2000 will help us take the Battle App to the next level,” says Sang Choi, chief executive officer, Cookie Langs. “The words and examples are excellent for young learners of English. The result of this collaboration will be a top-quality edutainment service for young learners of English. Cookie Langs will start by reaching out to educational institutions outside of Korea to drive interest in the Battle App."
