TMCNet: Will Disrupt the Language-Learning Industry

[January 21, 2013] Will Disrupt the Language-Learning Industry

Jan 21, 2013 ( via COMTEX) -- On Monday, January 21st, plans to release the beta version of its language-learning courses. These courses, which have been taught in over 130 countries, at schools and major corporations are now entirely free. The company believes that people are paying far too much to learn a new language.

"The reality is, with the evolution of the internet, things that used to cost money are now completely free. If people can get encyclopedias, dictionaries, personalized music, children's learning games and video games free on the internet, there is no reason that language learning shouldn't be free as well," remarked Dave Clark, CEO of

The new learning system is offered in Spanish, French, Italian, German, Japanese, Chinese and Russian. The company aims to help individuals stay motivated with their courses through competitions, social engagement and contests. Rewards like virtual coins and genius points are given for lessons completed and for consecutive daily logins. These can be exchanged for learning enhancements such as downloadable audio and printable lessons.

The lessons are based on the award-winning Visual Link(R) methodology and has learners speaking from the beginning. These free lessons are supported by advertising, and much like Pandora(R), users will have the option to upgrade to a version without advertising.
