Personally, I have spent a lot of money learning Spanish and French in classrooms, through books and CDs and even living and studying in countries that speak the languages. I designed Englishlink to replicate the way I would like to learn another language – with native speaking teachers from my home or office, when I want to, with tangible results.

On April 17, 2007, Drake Training Systems Limited will launch its first online English school called Englishlink. Using pre-recorded, video-streamed lessons, this new online training tool will revolutionize the way that speakers of foreign languages learn to communicate in English.
“This school will offer anyone wishing to learn English the opportunity to do so with a native speaking teacher from the comfort of their chosen environment,” said Lesley Rogan, creator and manager of Englishlink. “Going overseas to study is expensive and generally inaccessible to most people. By using this widely available online medium, we can offer this experience to every prospective learner and reach an extremely broad audience.”
Englishlink is the first on-line English as a Second Language (ESL) school to teach via pre-recorded, video-streamed lessons. The site serves to create as much interaction between the student and teacher as possible. Unlike other on-line English courses, Englishlink uses physical resources in an interactive environment.
According to Lesley, “This is not simply an experience where the user clicks answers on the screen using their mouse. I have created a learning experience that allows the student to feel as though they are in a real classroom with a real teacher. It is a personal learning journey that moves at the pace of the learner, no matter what level of English they are at.”
Englishlink aspires to provide all English learners with the opportunity to learn from high calibre teachers. Englishlink’s Curriculum Manager, Gareth Lewis, believes, “We have the answer to the worldwide demand for quality language education. Excuses such as ‘I can’t get to the class on time,’ ‘it is too expensive,’ or ‘I can’t find a good teacher’ are a thing of the past. Englishlink makes the experience of learning English convenient and effective.”
Lesley sums it up, “Personally, I have spent a lot of money learning Spanish and French in classrooms, through books and CDs and even living and studying in countries that speak the languages. I designed Englishlink to replicate the way I would like to learn another language – with native speaking teachers from my home or office, when I want to, with tangible results.”
