COMMITTED TO YOUR SUCCESS
Our online language teaching model has been developed in collaboration with teachers and researchers in Neuroscience, Entertainment Learning and Online Pedagogy to offer an immersive and engaging experience designed meet every student’s needs.
We facilitates frequent exposure to the language being learned via short-format learning units easily playable outside of the classroom, designed for use under the supervision of a language professor or, alternatively, in autonomous learning mode. By using video – and, in particular, clips from current films and television series – as the main form of learner input we are able to engage students with their foreign language learning by appealing to their interests. Student motivation is further reinforced by a steady stream of new content published every week; by an attractive and intuitive user interface; and by gamified exercises.
The use of scores on the platform (which students are encouraged to try to increase, as in a game) rather than grades results in increased frequency of use, and thus effectiveness of learning.
