Communication plays a fundamental role in all aspects of the business. In essence, it is the lifeblood of every organization. It involves the exchange of information, ideas, opinions, agreements, and proposals, which can have a significant and direct business impact on any organization.
We are goFLUENT, a multi-award winning provider of customizable digital language learning solutions. We aim to break down language barriers between native and non-native speakers in the global economy by providing a valuable opportunity to develop an equal voice.
We recognize that no two learners are alike. Our learners come with a wide range of learning styles and preferences, and a variety of short-term and long-term goals. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all formula for learning a new language. Instead, we rely on four key principles for effective language learning.
Four Key Principles :
- Language Input: Input refers to the learner’s exposure to the target language. Learners must be exposed to both the real-world use of the language and simplified samples designed for learning. Language input should be abundant, clear, and relevant.
- Language Output: Output refers to the learner’s application of the target language. Learners must practise the language not only through guided activities but also through authentic and meaningful free speech and writing.
- Vocabulary Development: Vocabulary building expands the learner’s knowledge and confidence in the target language. To interact efficiently in the language, learners must aim to understand 95% of what they’re exposed to in real life. To achieve this, they must target relevant, high-frequency words.
- Stretch Zone: Adult learners learn best and are better motivated when they are given the right amount of challenge and difficulty, not more, not less. This is achieved through the careful analysis of their needs and goals, access to diverse content of different levels, and personalized lessons.
