A consistent theme we’ve been hearing from ESL Teachers is how they feel that our conversational simulations offer a very strong value to their students who need to overcome their initial hesitation and fear of conversing in another language.
It’s difficult to put a value on this feature. It’s not easily quantifiable (i.e. “we can increase a student’s confidence by over 50%! This just can’t be measured.) – Therefore, it’s more of an impression that is being conveyed to us — indicating that our platform provides a solution to a rarely addressed problem other curriculum materials don’t tackle.
It’s the essence of why “simulations” are exceptionally valuable — even if we can’t pinpoint the precise value-add they offer. We’ll never know what percentage of “conversational confidence” an application may result in….but, we do know that our conversational ESL simulations make a difference, both for teachers and learners.
