Globalization is THE major reason why there’s has been an increased need to learn foreign languages.
OK, ok. Yeah, immigration is a really major factor. People of diverse nationality find it possible to move to different countries, and more easily than before, because they can research how to do it on the internet. ANd often, they want to learn English.
Good point. That’s right. Just doing business in our own cities, meeting the needs of people from different neighborhoods, it’s sometimes a good time to learn a new language. And maybe English isn’t your first language, and learning to speak and read it better would be great. Am I right?
Among the most outsourced language is English, which is much preferred because its the major language in the world.
It’s common today for English experts to migrate to Asia such as South Korea, Thailand, China or some parts of Europe such as Germany or Spain to teach English.
This website had a history of being about Teaching English Abroad, and English as a second language, ESL. Preparing resumes for ESL teachers. ESL lesson plans, and so on.
In my early days owning it, I truly thought it would interesting to ready about how travel to other countries to teach English, would be very interesting and educational. But I found it hard to find genuine people to write real things about that. So I neglected this website for a while. I was bare for a long time, then, a few articles were added, but not enough. I let things languish, but I have some plans.
It turns out, my software development of the ‘Talking Moose Project‘, can be helpful here.
The Moose is multi-lingual. Written language from many languages can be spoken with text-to-speak voices, by the Moose, with perfect lip sync. TTS voices are so good nowadays, that they sound entirely realistic and understandable.
In the past, people learning new languages would listen to recordings of real humans, real native speakers of the language. But I’ve realized that the future is TTS voices. People CAN learn new languages, from listening to TTS voices. They provide a vast cost reduction in producing materials for learning a second language.
So I’m planning to have the Moose software have modules for teaching English, and that’s why I decided to hold onto this domain, until I can get that part coded and test.
Currently the site has some interesting posts about personal experiences of people who have migrated to other countries to teach. You can access the published posts by clicking on the links below…
