The EFS library of resources includes more than 1,700 lessons, 40,000 audio clips and a unique speech recognition capability to help students with pronunciation. English For Success’ learning management system enables instructors to monitor each student’s progress and assign tailored lessons based on their individual needs.
“We are very excited to work with Liberty University as they seek to expand their reach to attract foreign students who require better English proficiency to their university,” said Gali Bar-Ziv, President & CEO of Lingo Media. “We view the selection of our product by an acclaimed university like Liberty as an important endorsement and an indication of the potential opportunity that exists for our solutions in the United States.”
“We are pleased to be able to offer our foreign students a proven solution to help them improve their English skills at their own pace and according to their unique needs,” said Dr. William Wegert, Dean of International Student Programs, Liberty University. “ELL Technologies’ offering stood out among the products we considered due to its robust content library and unique customization features.”
