We wanted to write more about our first partner company, Eleutian Technology, and its product SpeakENG.
Eleutian is based in Wyoming, USA, in a little town called Ten Sleep (google map). Their mission is to teach the world English, using online courses and US-based teachers. In a time when much of the US is in recession, Eleutian has been hiring certified teachers to satisfy the global demand for learning English. Eleutian is an interesting globalization story in that English teaching is being “in-sourced” to the US. Another intriguing aspect about Eleutian is its surprising technology infrastructure (news report).
The other part of Eleutian’s SpeakENG product is online courses that are powered by Pearson’s English Language Learning and Instruction System (ELLIS). SpeakENG (Pearson ELLIS) has an impressive amount of English content for online self-study. There are video lessons, scripts, recordings, skill drills, in-depth explanations of grammar points, and much more. We’ve been told the package normally retails at a very expensive rate, and that the pricing on italki reflects Eleutian’s desire to grow aggressively in this market (this pricing might not last).
If you want to find out more information (pictures and walkthrough), take a look at our in-depth explanation on Eleutian SpeakENG.
Eleutian SpeakENG is offering to italki users:
- 8- minute trial tutoring session – $1.50
- 1 month subscription to SpeakENG with 15-minute tutoring session – $6.00
- 1 year subscription to SpeakENG with 15-minute tutoring session – $16.00
- 4 x 15-minute tutoring sessions – $20.00
- 24 x 15-minute tutoring sesions – $110.00
You can see the full list here.
If you’re learning English, we really can’t recommend trying SpeakENG enough. It’s an amazing product for self-study and combined with tutoring from US certified teachers, we’re sure this is something that you shouldn’t miss out on.
