Living in a country that speaks so many languages and even dialects, kids might find it difficult to master a language properly. In the end, they may be confused and this is how they end up with Bahasa “rojak”.
We all know how English is important as an international language. Although kids do learn English in school, but with so many subjects to learn, the time spent on English subject is just too short. Furthermore, they don’t use the language to converse when in school and home, causing them not being able to master the language.
I’ve recently discovered about 51Talk and think their methods could be effective to those who are interested to be proficient in English.
What is 51Talk?
51Talk is an online English course provider that offers courses for different levels of English learners. These courses are designed to help students learn the language through interactive lessons with native speakers from around the world. With this, students will have the opportunity to practice their language skills through live conversations with the teachers on the platform.
51Talk is headquartered in Beijing, China. It was founded in 2011 and has grown exponentially since then. It now has over 40 million students worldwide, and it is one of the most popular online Kids English education providers in Asia.
How 51Talk Works?
Since the pandemic, parents have been more cautious in enrolling their children to physical classes. The good news is, the English courses are available online or offline, which means that parents can choose whichever option that suits their children best.
This course system developed by 51Talk is based on Common European Language Reference (CEFR) Standard for overseas youth majors and is in line with Cambridge, IELTS, TOEFL and KSSR standards. The course consists of nine levels which can be completed at one’s own pace.
Their focus is to help students improve their communication skills by capturing their attention with vivid and attractive visuals. When their interest grows, they will be more willing to learn and remember better.
What Makes 51Talk Unique?
1-on-1 with Native English Speaker
51Talk is one of the few English course providers that adopts the 1-on-1 online teaching mode using native English speakers as teachers. As it is done online via their learning app called Air Class, children can join the class from any location between 6am-11.30pm daily.
Each class lasts for only 25 minutes as children’s attention span is around this duration. During the class, children will need to communicate with the teacher in purely English. This is how the children gets to practice what they learned and eventually become more comfortable to interact with other people in English.
In order for students to get the most out of their classes, 51Talk offers personalized feedback whereby a local consultant will schedule a call with their parents to update them about their child’s progress after every test.
Large Number of Foreign Teachers to Choose From
51Talk boasts a total of more than 30,000 professional foreign teachers from USA, Canada and Philippines. Hence, it would be easy to make a class booking as slots are almost guaranteed.
