MEETING CHANGE WITH INNOVATION

Lingo Media has been continually acquiring, developing and refining flexible and innovative English language learning solutions to meet the changing needs of language learning. Our diverse range of educational products include fully online or computer-based lessons and activities, enrichment features, print materials, teachers’ materials, and sophisticated assessment tools.

RESULTS THAT MATTER

Through our courses, more than 20 million learners in more than 10 countries have significantly improved their English language skills. They are connecting and communicating with other English speakers around the world.

 

 

All of our language learning solutions – including Scholar, Business ,Master and Kids – use state-of-the art components designed to assist learners with their pronunciation and conversation skills.

 

SPEAK2ME

Speak2Me, an innovative solution that addresses the need for an automatic, computer-based conversation practice tool.

 

Speak2Me simulates life-like conversations using an avatar that reacts to the learners’ input. Learners listen, record themselves and receive feedback. Speak2Me uses state-of-the-art speech recognition, avatars and Flash technologies.

 

THE STUDIO

Traditional speech recognition programs only detect pronunciation problems at the word level, and return feedback only for a whole word. Learners don’t know what part of the word is being pronounced incorrectly.

The Studio is an automatic, computer-based language tool developed to improve English pronunciation. Learners listen to examples of native speaker pronunciation and then receive feedback on their own pronunciation as they practice their English-language skills.

 

The Studio’s state-of-the-art speech recognition can detect mispronunciation of single phonemes (sounds). This allows users to pinpoint the exact problem they have with any given sound. Instant color-coded feedback shows the learner which phonemes have been pronounced incorrectly.

 

 

Our publishing business, Lingo Learning, is a publisher of leading educational text books and learning tools. These resources are distributed with the express purpose of making teaching English easy!

Our respected educational resources bring students and teachers across China together with:

• A wide range of popular textbooks, and supplemental learning components to teach/learn English
