LingoAce, a Singapore-headquartered global education technology company and leading Mandarin Chinese language learning platform, has launched their latest offering, English Live, leveraging its success in teaching Mandarin Chinese through its technology platform to now teach English.
Through the development of industry leading Chinese language curriculum and products, LingoAce is applying those teaching concepts and methods to English Live. LingoAce’s courseware is more animated and interactive than others in the market, using cartoons, animations and interactive activities along with certified English teachers based in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, to boost kids’ interest in English learning. With English Live, students will enhance functional skills in English (from listening and speaking to reading and writing), applicable social skills and their 4C capabilities (communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity).
English Live is a global curriculum based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), an internationally recognized set of standards, and developed with a student-centered teaching philosophy, as well as interactive, real-life situation-based, and game-based teaching methods. Aimed towards a broad range of students, from ages 4 through 13, and initially available in Thailand and Indonesia as well as France, Germany, Italy, and Spain. Future plans include localization of the curriculum based on initial customer feedback from each market.
“We’re excited to now be using the technology platform we developed to reach a new set of language learners to teach the most spoken language globally, English,” said Hugh Yao, CEO and founder of LingoAce. “The synergy between the teaching concepts and methods we’ve developed and the interactiveness of the program will make it easier for children across the globe to build language fluency in English.”
In addition, LingoAce has also leveraged Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) technology to bring LingoAce customers more stable classroom experiences with enhanced video and audio communications.
