A game-based method to learn to code
Codelearn is a game-based learning method designed to teach programming, robotics and computational thinking to everyone. It was originally designed by parents for our own kids. Our main goal is to prepare them for the future they will have to face and teach them the 21st century skills.
We truly believe that having fun is the best way to learn something, specially during childhood. That is why we decided to create a universe of characters and we present the adventures they live through comic strips. Codelearn students will have to learn different programming languages in order to help some characters defeat the bad ones.
Each challenge accomplished helps students to win points, which they will need to improve their level and unlock new features. Points can also be used as currency in the Points Store – like in a video game, which keeps them motivated.
Codelearn is designed for kids and teens from 7 – the main requirement is that they are able to read easily. There is no age limit and there are lots of adults learning to code with this method, which is adapted to all ages so everyone can progress at their own pace.
What are the differences between Codelearn and other platforms?
Detailed study plan
At Codelearn, you don’t have to choose where to start because we follow a study plan split into different courses that we call adventures. Just like in a videogame, there is a path that you have to follow. You will have to choose sometimes (do I make A or B first?) but the learning curve has been proven with thousands of students.
There are lots of resources out there to learn to code, but finding out where to start and what to learn next can be a time-consuming task. Let us do that for you.
You might have tried learning online before (e.g. enrolling in a MOOC) and you probably left the course unfinished. Online learning has a massive abandonment rate and one of the main reasons is that students usually don’t have anyone to report to.
If you join us at Codelearn, you will have an assigned mentor from the first day. Your mentor will guide you during your learning process and keep you motivated with weekly challenges. Also, he will always help you and solve all your doubts.
Our platform uses Artificial Intelligence algorithms to know if you are learning with our adventures and how fast you can understand new ideas. This way, it can choose to let you use shortcuts or help you refreshing some specific concepts.
Exercises also depend on your age, so the platform shows different exercises to kids, teenagers or adults, although it is trying to teach everyone the same ideas. All contents are constantly reviewed and regularly updated by our teaching team.
Which programming languages
will I learn at Codelearn?
Even if they have prior experience, all students start from the beginning, so that we can ensure that they assimilate the core knowledge and learn the basics of programming. If you already have some coding skills, you will simply get faster through the first adventures.
The order that we follow is a relevant part of the methodology. You will have to finish the previous adventures in order to unlock the next ones and learn other programming languages.

What is the course schedule?
The in-person classes are not master classes, but a mentoring or a personalized follow-up. These classes last one hour per week and all students can come whenever it works best for them and their families. Generally our centres are open every afternoon from Monday to Friday.
As we offer a personalized learning, everybody can come the day and time that works best for them. In any case, we try to group children of similar age so they can share the learning experience, become friends and participate in group activities.

Prices and discounts
We offer discounts to families that enroll two or more siblings. Also there are usually some discounts according to the fees (in case of choosing the quarterly or the annually fees instead of the monthly one).
Prices may vary depending on the centres, so contact your nearest centre to ask for more information or join us through the online platform. You can see the prices for the online course here.
Codelearn has created its own level certifications in order to demonstrate the acquired knowledge at work. There are three levels (A, B and C) and the whole study plan requires several years of study.
