How can we enhance your learning in a meaningful way?
The thirst for learning Arabic has never been greater, and there’s no doubt that immersion moves learners to language acquisition much quicker. BUT affording long periods of time in immersive environments is difficult.
So a small group of people got thinking: how can we employ technology to make up for this barrier and create an experience that actually delivers?
We got to work: researching learning theory, deliberating curriculum design and interviewing Arabic learners in the community.
Our main concern has been to build a product that actually helps you get to fluency.
After years of hearing the frustration and constant sighing, here is our prototype for Arabic Workshop.
Get away from “one size fits all”
Focus on Listening
Arabic Workshop provides a suite of add-on listening resources that complement your current study program.
- Listening is the most important language skill, so why is it so neglected?
- Did you know there are two different types of listening and that to achieve fluency you need a mix of both?
It’s no good covering a topic, concept or vocubulary just once – you need to return to it again and again, at different stages in your learning journey, each time adding another layer of competency. Our resources are carefully graded and grouped to help your progress.
Keep it relevant
Our mapping tool allows you to match Arabic Workshop content to your current study program, whether by topic, grammar point or textbook chapter, so your listening is always fully integrated with the rest of your learning.
HD quality video and audio content
Delivered by great voice actors, our first release employs whiteboard animation and a series of podcasts.
Intelligent Vocabulary Building
Building your vocabulary is at the core of acquiring a new language. Artificial Intelligence allows us to expose the user to words in a systematic way to maximise memory retention.
Social Learning Tools
Join private and public groups learning through shared interests, such as football, baking, cryptocurrencies, science fiction…
Real-life and current scenarios are brought to life by native voices.
Content is created with different types of listening skills in mind to give a rounded experience.
Users select their subject areas depending on their interests. The content is graded so skills and vocabulary are built up in layers.
Personalised Learning Pathways
All features are integrated to create a unique pathway of relevant and engaging content for every user.
Meet the Team
A careful balance of both native speakers and language learners brings our team close to the user experience and has enabled us to build with users in mind from the very start.
