For the last six years, the number of refugees worldwide has increased, now surpassing 68 million people. Here, Dr. Katie Nielson recaps her insightful SXSW EDU 2019 panel discussion on this topic with other leaders from higher education and workforce development.
In this webinar, Chief Education Officer of Voxy Dr. Katie Nielson explains how to bring effective workplace language training to users at scale and the science behind how and why Voxy works. Available in English and Spanish | Disponible en inglés y español.
Chief Learning Officer Magazine details how Voxy has been working with the Campari Group to offer personalized, needs-based instruction to employees who need to communicate in English around the world.
It is predicted that online videos will account for 82% of internet traffic by 2022, and there’s no question that they have become part of our everyday lives. So why not take advantage of the affordances that they offer for language learning?
A new, independent study by the American Institutes for Research demonstrates Voxy’s efficacy in significantly improving learners’ English language proficiency compared to learners using traditional language learning platforms.
Voxy’s Needs Analysis brings personalized learning to every learner and paints a clearer picture of a user’s current English language proficiency and goals by drawing upon machine learning to provide targeted recommendations from over 20,000+ pieces of instructional content and live instruction.
The Language Co, a language school based in Chile offering in-house and on-site face-to-face English classes partnered with Voxy to bring effective and personalized business English training to users across Chile and Argentina.
Language learning works best when learners practice with materials that are interesting to them and relevant to their goals. That’s why Voxy’s patented technology takes authentic pieces of media (articles, video transcripts, images, tweets, etc.) and turns them into English lessons quickly.
We know from dozens of years of research that learning a language requires motivation and engagement, but we also know that we are doing learners a disservice when we aren’t teaching them the right thing. While games are fun and translation intuitive, the right approach is something altogether different.
