One of the primary challenges that corporate India seeks to address is the English Language Skills of the students who graduate out of college every year and enter the work-force. A primary part of the training and development of new-hires incorporates focused English Language Training classes. It is truly a challenge for a large population of students that venture to work in major metropolitan cities after studying in rural India or tier-2 and tier-3 towns. One also sees the growth of English Language Training Institutes that dot the landscape of the country. Barring a few recognised institutions, most of these centres are out to make a quick buck.
“Be a Good Listener”
In the Bhagvad Gita, Lord Krishna advises Arjuna to be a good listener and focus on his duties. Well we will not get into the debate of the existence or absence of Gods here but just choose to reiterate the core philosophy of — “Be a Good Listener”.
Redacto – Listen to Speak
Redacto is a fascinating new product from ‘brightlylit’ a specialist digital publishing and production consultancy based in Oxfordshire in the UK. Redacto works on the premise of listening to native speakers of English converse on day-to-day topics and then learners trying to repeat what they have listened to without errors. With ample practice, focused listening and taking up in-built speaking exercises, learners improve in confidence and are able to speak English with confidence.
The Social Aspect
Redacto allows users to invite friends and challenge them to complete an exercise. This adss the fun quotient to learning and allows users to learn together and improve speaking skills together.
The product is currently in its Beta stage but it has garnered a lot of interest from users around the world and also offers exercises in Spanish for users who wish to learn languages other than English. We believe that Redacto is a great way to improve one’s English-speaking skills and will be a game-changer in the Communication Skills Industry.
