With nearly 4 million classes taught in North America, American and Canadian learners drive strongest demand for Chinese program while English program gains momentum in Europe.
SINGAPORE and SAN MATEO, Calif., June 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — LingoAce, the leading preK-12 online learning platform building fluency and opening a world of possibilities, today celebrates a new milestone: more than 10 million classes have been taught worldwide to students from more than 100 countries. Since launching in 2017, LingoAce’s award-winning preK-12 online learning platform now offers Mandarin Chinese and English language learning programs for children of all language proficiency levels and cultural backgrounds.
“We believe the future of education is personalization. With the recent advancements in AI technology, we are closer to a future where we can truly serve every learner and cater to how they learn best, said Hugh Yao, Founder and CEO of LingoAce. “Language learning for children has been a critical starting point for us to develop an effective and engaging online learning platform. In the last year, we made critical research and development investments to refine our proprietary curriculum and build a seamless virtual classroom. Today, our teachers can engage any learner effectively on our platform – no matter their cultural background or prior exposure to the language.”
Rising popularity of technology-driven language learning
LingoAce’s growth and success since launching in 2017 has largely been driven by word-of-mouth amongst Chinese diaspora families around the world. Driving the strongest interest are families from North America with nearly 4 million classes taught collectively. Today, 4 in 5 students in the U.S. have studied with LingoAce for more than a year – many of them referred by other parents.
One of LingoAce’s first North American students, Junqian started his language learning journey with the company five years ago. As a third-generation immigrant, Junqian’s parents felt it was important for their son to be bicultural and bilingual. After visiting several offline and online teaching institutions, they enrolled him in LingoAce’s online Mandarin Chinese language learning program where Junqian has blossomed.
“In our community, it is common to see many children resistant to learning Chinese. With LingoAce however, we could see Junqian visibly motivated to embrace the language. From saying his first word to reciting Chinese poems with ease, his teacher Ms. Guo has played an integral role in his progress,” shared Junqian’s mom, Helen Liang.
Through LingoAce’s award-winning online learning platform, students can connect to passionate and professionally accredited teachers using a proprietary research-based curriculum in a seamless virtual classroom. Each element of the learning experience has been designed and continuously refined for children growing up today:
- Instruction: Each of LingoAce’s 4,000-plus teachers underwent a rigorous screening process with a 2% acceptance rate. They are continuously trained in the latest teaching methods for engaging students through games, animated storytelling, and visual teaching aids.
