SpeakingPal(R) Plus!(TM) Mobile Service for Learning English
2011년 12월 20일 (화) WooHeui Kim, Reporter whkim@worldyannews.com

Educational Testing Service (ETS) has teamed up with SpeakingPal Ltd. to offer SpeakingPal® Plus!™, a mobile learning product that helps users build English speaking skills anytime, anywhere. Available as a free trial through the Apple App store, the Android Market, and selected ETS products distributors worldwide, SpeakingPal Plus! features exclusive content from ETS, the creators of the TOEFL® and TOEIC® tests, officials from the company announced today.

The new product, SpeakingPal® Plus! is a subscription-based English-language learning system that offers a unique range of interactive speaking exercises, role playing, language activities and authentic TOEIC exercises from ETS. The TOEIC tests are used by more than 10,000 businesses, organizations and government agencies in 120 countries. In 2010, more than six million TOEIC tests were administered worldwide.

“The need is greater than ever to speak English,” says Eyal Eshed, President of SpeakingPal Ltd. “Using a new language for the first time can be a challenging task. SpeakingPal Plus! gives you more confidence because it's friendly, personalized, private, and offers hours of practice. The lessons are also media rich, highly interactive and entertaining, making SpeakingPal Plus! an engaging and effective self-learning tool.”

SpeakingPal Plus! provides a unique speech recognition tool. Mini-lessons enable students to learn English in small sections that last 5 minutes or less (micro-learning). This unique methodology allows students to learn effortlessly during their daily activities while taking advantage of their idle time. The learner interacts with SpeakingPal Plus! in short, real-life dialogs where the user controls the conversation flow. SpeakingPal Plus! provides instant feedback on the student's speaking performance.

“We are proud to work with SpeakingPal Ltd.,” says Michael Wilcox, Director at ETS, “and help English language learners through mobile devices with which they are most comfortable and familiar.”
