OpenLanguage isn't here to replace teachers. On the contrary, we believe that technology should be used as plumbing to support teachers and students. Our goal is to make language classes more efficient, effective and enjoyable. If you are a teacher, we want to work with you! That's why teachers always use OpenLanguage for free!
Here's what you can get with your teacher's account on OpenLanguage:
1. Practical and engaging language courses in one of the seven language channels on OpenLanguage. All of the content is designed to teach students natural real life language. We know that traditional textbooks are not always good at that and you have to spend a lot of time searching for practical and engaging content for your students. We help you solve that problem on OpenLanguage.
2. Mobile apps that allow you and your students to teach and study a new language on your favorite mobile devices. We believe that learning should be integrated into the students' daily routine. They should be able to learn on their way to work, class, during coffee break or whenever there's the need and desire.
3. Move lecture outside the class so that you can spend more time on practice and feedback with your students, essence of the Flipped Classroom approach. We do this by constructing every lesson around a lesson audio that features a core dialogue in the target language as well as explanations by teacher presenters. We also feature a range of study and review activities to help students further break down and study the core dialogue.
4. Lesson plans and practice materials to support your classes (available for selected EnglishPod courses). With the new Flipped Classroom model where students receive input on their own before class, you can repurpose valuable class time on practice and feedback. We've designed materials to help you carry out your classes.
5. Manage your students by inviting them to OpenLanguage, assign them appropriate courses, check their homework, provide feedback, etc. A powerful and easy to use system that helps you stay on top of your students' learning and provide them with personalized feedback.
