Countries like Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Vietnam, Russia, Turkey, Rwanda and South Sudan have made sweeping reforms in policy and instituted government programs that are designed to increase English proficiency.
New York City, NY (PRWEB) June 16, 2013
The rapid growth in technology has made the world become smaller. People are keen to connect with one another digitally, but having different native languages poses a difficulty in effective interaction. This is where English comes in, as more countries and governments are beginning to recognize it as the international medium of communication.
Developers of eReflect's self-paced English study software, Ultimate Vocabulary, recently commented on a report posted in ICEF Monitor by Ambient Insight, an international mobile learning and e-learning market research company. Ambient states that online and offline products focused on learning the English language generated US $35.9 billion in 2011. This is 67.1% of the total market on language learning.
Ambient foresees that the biggest potential for growth in revenue is in digital and online learning. It is expected that global spending on technology-based English learning will reach US $2.5 billion by 2016. This is because of several key factors, including consumer demand, digitization of academic and publishing materials, shortage of English teachers in high-demand countries, and government mandates on learning English in schools.
Countries like Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Vietnam, Russia, Turkey, Rwanda and South Sudan have made sweeping reforms in policy and instituted government programs that are designed to increase English proficiency. Building vocabulary will be important in learning the language, which is why some governments are starting the education at an early age.
For example, Vietnam and Japan have now made English learning compulsory in primary schools; Rwanda, a predominantly French-speaking country, mandates that all primary education should be taught in English; and South Sudan has proclaimed English as a national language, even though only a few people speak it in this newly-independent country.
Consequently, the creation of and usage of digital products and services on learning English are on the rise. The types that generate most profits include:
- Mobile learning apps
- Mobile learning Value Added Services (VAS)
- Digital reference-ware (e-textbooks)
- Self-paced e-learning
- Collaboration-based learning
For students and professionals alike, it is becoming more and more important to be able to compete globally in this digital age. Learning English grammar is not the only way of mastering the language effectively; building vocabulary is just as important. This is where software such as eReflect's Ultimate Vocabulary helps.
