Lingo Media: Going Global

LM Global

Lingo Media is committed to preparing graduates for the international workplace and to helping faculty advance an intercultural perspective. That’s why we’re building partnerships with institutions from around the world. We also benefit from being located in Toronto, one of the world’s most ethnically diverse centres of trade, culture and commerce. This proximity to a multicultural community provides invaluable practical experience in the creation of lesson plans and teaching ideas.

For those that missed it recently, Gale, a leading provider of research and education resources to libraries and an arm of Cengage Learning, has entered into a commercial distribution partnership with ELL Technologies Ltd., a subsidiary of Lingo Media. Through the agreement, Gale will have exclusive international rights to market, sell and distribute ELL Technologies’ Scholar English language training program to university and college libraries, public libraries, and private schools. The product will be co-branded as Gale Lingo and will be available in the second quarter of 2016.

“Gale’s focus is to create products that incorporate content with global relevance and appeal from our vast network of partnerships with leading institutions around the world,” said Terry Robinson, senior vice-president and managing director of Gale International. “Given that many advanced scholarly research pursuits in higher education today are conducted in English, there is an increasing demand globally for students to learn English and, with this new distribution agreement, we are pleased to broaden our offering by bringing to the library market the innovative learning techniques that Scholar provides.”

With its scale, educational publishing expertise, and existing relationships in international and domestic markets, Gale brings tremendous value to Lingo Media, particularly in the higher education space. It enables us to expand the reach and impact of our mission to Change the way the world learns English.
