This seemed unlikely to me. I know I can read and I’m pretty comfortable with speaking, but it just seemed far too technical for me.
But the Princess website, and the products and materials they provide, did make me wonder. As an e-book publisher, I’m constantly working with audio, video, social media and mobile technology to offer exceptional products to the masses.
We learned recently that people are learning better and faster than ever before and there is no doubt that our ability to deliver the information in the most effective way is helping make this possible. We’re seeing exponential growth in learning and product use and we see it as our responsibility to keep up with the speed.
Why don’t we add that same technology to improve our communication with people who aren’t native English speakers? Who want to learn English and understand and use the language but aren’t native English speakers?
Can we use the tools and methods that our predecessors used hundreds of years ago to help those who are learning us? Can we leverage the growing popularity of learning materials? Can we use the technology that’s used to create wonderful learning materials and instructional systems to teach English to those who are not native English speakers?
And can we take this to the next level and offer those who are not native English speakers our products and resources? The answer is yes. We do.
With the right tools and programs, you can learn and apply language skills you’ve already mastered to the language you are learning; and all the while to learn English and master the language at the same time. And since the learning process doesn’t involve classroom education, you can focus on the parts of the language you want to learn.
To achieve this, you will need access to the best tools, software and resources for learning, particularly through their own websites. It’s a given.
The second step is learning a new language without the benefit of instruction from a self-learners or text book. We’ve studied ways to bridge the gap between native speakers and English learners and created products that enable users to take their knowledge and practice it with no interference, and no rules or schedules. In this way, we’ve shown that it is possible to introduce students to the language as if they were still learning.
But what if we could combine the best of both worlds? What if we could offer native English speakers the opportunity to participate in the language learning process as if they were still doing it themselves and that we could offer the same great resources, programs and resources that native English speakers use.
We know the market and we understand the difficulties native English speakers face in taking the next step. In doing so, we are offering the best value and convenience to the learner while gaining invaluable insight to language learning through tools and information that won’t be duplicated or lost in another language learning approach.
