Onlingo, the unique, multi-modal language learning program that utilizes a proven method of cultural immersion, repetition and interactivity to teach Spanish, French, German and Italian, is reporting more than triple-digit growth since the company's launch. With an unprecedented 85 percent of Onlingo's customers willing to recommend the product to their friends and business associates, the company is on the path to help millions of Americans meet their personal language learning goals.

"Cultural immersion has been proven to be the most effective way to learn a new language, and we provide that experience in a unique and compelling way for people from the comfort of their homes, cars, gyms and offices," said Andrea Scarnecchia, Vice President - Product Marketing for Onlingo. "Helping our customers to reach their personal goals and listening to their feedback as they advance through our language programs has fueled our growth and helped us to create products that are fun to use, highly effective and easily fit into their busy lifestyles."

In an Onlingo Home Use Test research study conducted in Q1 of 2007, 90 percent of Onlingo customer respondents were satisfied with the program. Seventy-nine percent said that the Onlingo program surpassed their expectations, and 73 percent liked Onlingo better than similar programs they had tried.

Onlingo's customers have showered the company with testimonials that illustrate their satisfaction with the program effectiveness and reasons for rapid adoption of the unique, immersion-based Spanish, French, German and Italian learning program:

  •     "The lessons felt like real life. It was like learning without thinking that you were learning."
  •     "The audio CDs were great because I could take them with me in the car and use my driving time to learn a new language."
  •     "It was great that I could go at my own pace and could repeat a lesson several times if I needed to."
  •     "The way that the material is presented makes you feel like you're actually traveling."

Onlingo also attributes some of the company's growth to the increase in international travel by American consumers, combined with the need to learn a new language for use in their daily lives. Americans purchased $22.8 billion in travel services from European countries in 2006, according to the International Herald Tribune. Additionally, the US Census estimated a 3.4 percent increase in the Hispanic population between July 2005 and July 2006, making Hispanics the fastest-growing minority group in America.

"Whether our customers are learning Spanish to help them get ahead in their professional lives or French for a dream vacation, Onlingo is proud that our Audio CDs, CD-ROMs and Learning Guides are helping them Live the Languageā„¢ as they learn in their everyday lives...no matter where that leads them," said Scarnecchia.
