To create a community of independent language learners who use English confidently to express themselves, not only to access economic opportunities but also richer human interactions and greater participation in democratic citizenship.
- Stories: Interesting audio stories form the backbone of the course-ware. Learners, who otherwise have little or no access to quality audio content, listen to spoken English through these stories.
- Active learning: The stories also act as a springboard for stimulating and fun tasks involving communication and comprehension. Learners engage with these tasks through a set of innovative and interactive technology tools built into the course platform.
- Values: The course design aims to foster a culture of peer learning, privileging collaboration over competition and encouraging learners to be producers rather than mere consumers of content.
- Feedback: The design ensures that learners receive feedback from peers as well as from the computer – some computer tasks are designed to scaffold learners’ progression by giving immediate feedback.
- Learners lead the way: All tasks are designed to enable learners to work in pairs, allowing for communication and collaboration and with the freedom to decide the pace and flow of their lesson progression.
