TalktoCanada.com (http://www.talktocanada.com) presented their cutting-edge solution for English language instruction at the recent e-Learning and Distance Education held last month in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Along with Middle Eastern partner System On Line, the Canadian company presented their cost-effective solution for ESL learners at the Al Faisaliah Hotel last month.
"Getting to be part of the 1st annual e-Learning and Distance learning conference was great for our company. Our partner Systems On Line got dozens and dozens of leads and I think in the next 2-3 years there could be some serious expansion of our services throughout the Middle East," said Marc Anderson, principal behind TalktoCanada.com
TalktoCanada.com offers accessible education in English as a Second Language to students from all over the world. Their ESL classes are offered in virtual classrooms, complete with live video and voice as well as a real-time whiteboard. Using WebEx students interact with real teachers in groups no bigger than four students. Learners get personalized attention right in their own homes or offices and without the limiting need to find a traditional brick and mortar classroom.
Course representatives attended the show virtually, offering sample lessons to interested clients using the pioneering technology and doing so without ever leaving Ontario, Canada.
"Our two teachers at TalktoCanada.com got a chance to speak with hundreds of individuals and I think a very positive impression was given for both our company and Canada," Anderson said.
The teachers who attended enjoyed the experience.
"Being at the tradeshow virtually was a surreal experience. I got to see all the hustle and bustle of the event though I was not actually there," said Jillian Zavitz "Most people talking to me were a bit nervous. Something so new and innovative is always going to spark interest among people which is great to see."
