Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 22, 2006
Atlanta-based People Skills International announces a new product to increase the productivity of corporations and government agencies who have a diverse workforce representing several languages. People Skills International is now offering the Technology Assisted Language Learning (TALL) system to help employees improve their English, thereby improving customer service and organizational productivity.
“Without English language skills businesspeople can’t communicate with their customers, do meaningful market research, get credit, do their banking or accountancy or develop customer relations,” states Dr. Eser Altinay of Oxford Brookes University. “You need language skills to discover what your customers want and to provide it for them competently.”
TALL is a unique approach to learning the English language that doesn’t just focus on technology or classroom instruction but takes a holistic approach. The TALL method integrates the best of technology, teachers, native speakers, and real-world practice to produce better, faster results. Adaptive software makes it possible to customize each students learning experience so they proceed at their own pace with personalized reinforcement of words and phrases.
Larry Howick, co-founder of Stelar Consulting, international provider of the TALL system, says that “Learning English is convenient and easy with the systematic spaced review built into the software that tracks learning and periodically reviews material that was previously mastered. If the program detects that an important concept has been forgotten, it provides an immediate review to ensure that the material is learned.”
“In my work with organizations for the past 20 years, I have seen the stumbling blocks to productivity brought on by marginal English skills,” says Karla Brandau, president of People Skills International. “It is with great anticipation of maximum gains in productivity that we offer the TALL program to corporations and government agencies. Not only will team work improve through the mastery of English skills, but employees with exceptional skills become eligible for promotions they would have been ineligible for before TALL English instruction.
The TALL system was developed at Brigham Young University (BYU). BYU is known for its depth of foreign language and linguistic training, offering courses in 74 different languages. The TALL process has trained thousands of accomplished and effective communicators.
