EnglishCentral on TV Tokyo: A Wave of Change Hits English Education

EnglishCentral got some very nice publicity last week around our acquisition of Langrich, a company focused on 1:1 live tutoring in Japan.  The coverage on TV Tokyo did a great job comparing our online learning platform — which includes our speech recognition technology (Intellispeech℠) for self-learning as well as our new GoLive! tutoring — to an offline school called Nova.  The conclusion:  daily online lessons for $60 (6000 Yen) per month will be a real threat to traditional solutions that offer only a few lessons a month for $200 (20,000 Yen), both in terms of cost, technology and convenience.  Victory for online learning . . .
