In this post I highlight the main differences that exist, in my opinion, between the research team we have built at ELSA and some of the realities I have been able to observe so far during my professional career. I am aware that both academic and corporate research have many implementation variants, all of them valid if the objectives they set themselves are achieved.
Students Can Improve their English Skills Amid COVID-19 Outbreak & School Closures for Free
ELSA’s mission since launch has always been about helping students improve their English speaking skills. Whether it’s passing an exam, landing a job, or making new friends around the world, ELSA is built to help you realize your goals. During these uncertain times, we maintain our unwavering commitment to supporting students in the best way that we can.
Today we are announcing free ELSA PRO accounts for all students enrolled in elementary through high school (K-12) anywhere in the world. ELSA PRO provides 1600+ English lessons and a comprehensive pronunciation training curriculum that covers all sounds in American English.
“It’s important that we support students around the world during this time of hardship and extended periods of school closures. We want to allow students to continue their English education through our mobile application ELSA Speak. As the world becomes increasingly digital and interconnected, international teams and remote workers are the new norm. English proficiency is an important skill for students to master and we hope this will help,” said Ms. Vu Van, co-founder and CEO of ELSA.
ELSA (English Language Speech Assistant) is an AI-powered app for the 1.5B language learners in the world to learn to speak English more fluently, thereby changing their careers and lives. ELSA uses proprietary speech technology with deep learning and AI to detect people’s pronunciation mistakes with 95%+ accuracy. ELSA listens to the way language learners pronounce words, sentences or conversations to pinpoint exact errors and provide real-time feedback on pronunciation mistakes with specific suggestions on how to improve. ELSA is used by many universities, professional English training programs and secondary schools in the US and internationally.
