Los Angeles and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam — Jan. 27, 2022 — Age of Learning, Inc., the leading education technology innovator and creator of the widely popular ABCmouse online learning program, and Galaxy Education, a subsidiary of Galaxy Entertainment & Education Corporation in Vietnam, today announced a partnership to launch ABCmouse English in Vietnam. The new partnership joins Age of Learning’s education technology expertise with Galaxy Education’s deep market knowledge and extensive network of online and offline marketing channels to serve families across the country. The partnership also furthers Age of Learning's global expansion and footprint in Asia, where it recently announced a joint venture with Rakuten Group, Inc. in Japan.
Designed by Age of Learning’s language learning experts and grounded in learning science, ABCmouse English takes an authentic approach to teaching English as a second language, helping children learn the new language in the same way they learn their native language, starting with listening and understanding; then speaking; then phonics, reading, and writing. The program, which uses a unique, research-proven approach to language learning, helps children build English communication skills with 260 sequenced lessons and more than 6,000 educational games, original videos, books, and songs. Key features of ABCmouse English include:
An innovative application of speech recognition technology that enables children to improve pronunciation by comparing to a native speaker and working to better their performance
A user-friendly parent dashboard that makes it easy to track children’s progress in acquiring specific skills so that parents can monitor and guide their children without themselves speaking English
An intuitive interface that enables children to navigate through the curriculum entirely on their own
A rewards system that motivates children to progress through structured lessons and enjoy playing English teaching games and puzzles
