On 1 July, RLI launched their new digital learning platform, RLI365, which provides a bespoke digital learning experience based on the latest cognitive science and makes language learning more fun, cost-effective and faster. It also marks the company’s next step in becoming a centre of excellence for language learning.
Anna Bastek, CEO of RLI and passionate language learner, commented: “I’m very excited about the launch of the portal RLI365 as it will revolutionise the language learning industry. Having learnt three foreign languages myself I wanted to make sure our clients can learn languages in a more effective and fun way. I have discovered that lot of the passive learning methods such as listening to interesting content is a lot more effective in reaching fluency than studying grammar books. We have studied the science of language learning and integrated it all in the RLI365 platform. Our clients can now immerse themselves in the language and the content they like.”
On top of bespoke face–to–face or online lessons, RLI clients can also access spaced repetition technology which allows them to memorise new vocabulary faster. They can access thousands of interesting videos, articles, podcasts, books and interviews in order to mix language learning with a topic of their interest or the accent or dialect of their choice.
They can even import their own content and turn it into a lesson. Voice recognition technology will score the pronunciation skills, while unlimited grammar lessons and tests are also available. Students now have access to progress charts, forums, feedback, reminders and the latest world news feeds. All this makes learning a language a lot more exciting and enables students to find their favourite learning method.
The portal also integrates online scheduling software. Students can book, cancel or reschedule their lessons through the phone app. They see the teacher availability instantly. All their course materials are in one place and they can communicate with the teacher through the app. This all keeps the admin time to a minimum.
“The portal was designed for busy professionals who haven’t got a lot of spare time in the day to practise their language skills so they need results quickly. A lot of our clients relocate for a job to a foreign country and they don’t have time to study grammar or have face–to–face lessons. Now they have a choice of various methods,” says RLI Managing Director Alex Michelle-Parr.
