(PRWEB) January 30, 2012
Since launching its virtual English Language School in China on July 1, 2011, nearly 10,000 Year One Programs, including access to the virtual world of Oville, have been sold in that country alone. The company pleased to announce that the virtual ESL school is now available in Korea, Japan, India, and Malaysia.
“There is a growing demand,” said Cackleberries Entertainment CEO Eronne Foster, “for safe, online educational programs for young children that help build their English language skills and promote positive cross-cultural communication. And our English language school is rapidly filling that need in Asian countries.”
Foster went on to say that families in Asia who are planning to send their children to North America to learn English, as well as those who may not be able to afford to do so, can use online programs such as these to give their children a head start.
“Cackleberries has a three-year program with hundreds of English lessons,” said Foster. “The lessons are fun and interactive, but they are also structured to provide the student feedback that teachers and parents in Asia are used to.”
Students between the ages of three and seven can take 100 animated, interactive lessons every year in the school. The three-year program features full immersion, detailed enunciation guides, a personalized study schedule, as well as weekly and monthly reviews. Along with the animated lessons there games, books, songs and dozens of “clickables” that help English language learners practice colours, numbers, shapes, time, and the calendar.
As Foster said, “Studies show that learning a new language before the age of eight is the optimum time for any child. Our ESL school gives young children an opportunity to play as they are immersed in a customized curriculum in an entirely English-speaking world. Oville provides an opportunity for language acquisition second only to actually living where English is spoken by everyone.”
