ELL Technologies Enters Into Strategic Alliance With FOCUS Your Mind In Colombia

Toronto, Canada, September 13, 2018 – ELL Technologies Ltd. (“ELL Technologies” or “ELL”) a subsidiary of Lingo Media Corporation, a global provider of digital English language learning solutions, is pleased to announce that it has secured a sales contract with FOCUS your mind in Colombia. Under the terms of the strategic agreement, secured through ELL Technologies’ distributor, E-Training SAS, FOCUS your mind has purchased licenses and is working with ELL to implement Focus Campus, a new online English language learning program.

FOCUS your mind has developed a pedagogy and learning model supported by material that advances communications skills in the English language. Based in Bogota, Colombia, FOCUS your mind has a chain of 33 learning institutions across Latin America. ELL’s Focus Campus is a new online program designed to create an immersive English language learning experience through culture that goes beyond the Real Scene product line currently utilized by FOCUS your mind students. 

“We are very pleased to have entered into a strategic alliance with FOCUS your mind. ELL Technologies has the opportunity to increase our penetration much further into their student base of 120,000+ users and to develop other programs in partnership with and for FOCUS your mind, such as using Winnie’s World for their pre-school market,” said Gali Bar-Ziv, CEO of ELL Technologies. “Recently, we have secured several sales contracts in Colombia as our ongoing sales and marketing efforts with our distributor network are starting to pay off.”

“We are excited to be working with ELL Technologies to launch Focus Campus, and in the future, other ELL programs” said Pedro Chia Diaz, General Administrative Manager of FOCUS your mind. “After thoroughly testing and running trials with ELL Technologies’ suite of software, it became apparent that by integrating their technology and our content from Real Scene into our curriculum, the outcomes for our users would be greatly enhanced. We are looking forward to the start of a long-lasting relationship.”
