THE EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATOR SERIES
Unique structure and fresh content integrated to digitally-facilitate the use of English Language quickly, confidently and effectively
Whether done online or not, training mostly is just listening. Does the ‘application of learning’ really happen? Generally when lectures end, we take a quiz, collect a certificate and go on our merry way.
But now, with our innovative facilitated-learning platform the experience is more participative for enhanced learning and instructionally-designed for impact in the real-world.
English Education Today
Ineffective Industrial Model
Onerous, irrelevant details lacking assessment, integration or association
Studies show Grammar focus impedes conversation skills.
Industrial language study includes little to no authentic listening or speaking practice.
Minimal legitimate impact on learner, contribution, capability or autonomy
LEARNING CIRCLES – A PROVEN APPROACH
Leveraging and digitalizing a successful education model
Scandinavian Education System – A Success Story
“Study circles more or less passed away in USA, they have ever since flourished in Sweden and Scandinavia. Still, nearly three million Swedes participate in more than 300,000 study circles annually…“
The ability to write and speak the language with sufficient structural accuracy and vocabulary to participate smoothly and effectively in most formal and informal interactions on practical, social, and professional topics.EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION
LISTENING/SPEAKING | THE MISSING PIECES
Intelligibility is the key outcome, it is unrelated to accent
HOW DO WE DO IT
Facilitated learning is based on learning-by-doing. The more responsibility a learner takes for their own progress, the more effective the training
Real-world LSRW Integration
Communication skills cannot simply be taught, they must be practiced
Structured and Active Participation
Maximizing online learning sessions, every voice matters.
Performance is Measurable
Real-time data, analytics aggregated across implementations
Facilitated learning empowers participants to take control of their learning process.
Participants learn with and from each other as they identify and implement solutions to a wide range of issues. They come to appreciate the value of their own ideas and the contribution that they are.Source : “Training the Trainer Resource Pack on Facilitated Learning ” by ICA-SAE

FEEDBACK AND TESTIMONIALS
The Effective Communicator facilitated at Schools and Enterprises
The Effective Communicator is well-written and planned, especially the practical guidance. In fact, I benefited a lot from the live discussions. The guidance pointed out several things that I will remember for years to come. I look forward to participating in the next program. Thank you.Rukmini – Pre School Teacher
Digital online creates a more effective learning environment because it allows more time to digest information. The combination of structure and freedom, effective time management, expanded world view, discussions with classmates and immediate feedback are some of the benefits.Rakesh – Primary School Teacher
Learning on my own before the live sessions made me more accountable. This was important because it developed my skills, creativity and intellectual curiosity. Independent learning is about being active rather than passive. It is about working out the answers rather than being told.Mangala – Secondary School Teacher
Everyone had the chance to speak out his/her opinions. We not only learned from the material but also each other.
I personally learnt about self-exploration, gaining knowledge, building confidence and expanding my skill set.
Getting communication skills upgraded is the need of the hour. I believe that practical learning is essential as it allows us to think past the theories which are taught in a traditional manner.
Honestly, it was quite a different course than I ever attended before. I feel it was very interesting and it inspired my confidence to express my ideas in English during conference calls.
I got pronunciation more than previous courses. I gained speaking accuracy for my future learning and work.
In English, I can talk to co-workers from Taiwan and Japan who I never talked to before.Mabel – Customer Support
