thesiliconreview-jan-viviani-ceo-voxy-22.jpg

Language training for employees isn't just for expatriates anymore. Having workers who can speak and work in non-native tongues is important to organizations competing in an increasingly global economy. Language training plays a key role in developing great professionals in the global company setting, enabling improved personal development among employees. Language training also drives business goals and supports corporate expansion into international markets, because it enables professionals to communicate better with people who speak the same business language. Lastly, language training supports client relationships because organizations begin to better understand their clients if they speak a common language.

Language Learning Experience Made Simple

Voxy Learning Experience Platform (LXP): Voxy’s LXP is designed to foster microlearning – personalized, just-in-time, mobile access that drives engagement and knowledge retention. The platform automatically adapts content and classes to proficiency level, professional goals, and personal interests of each learner. Lessons and live instruction sessions are aligned with microlearning best practices to adapt to the modern learner’s needs. Voxy’s AI-driven platform gathers data from research-backed assessments, ongoing performance evaluations, and its initial needs analysis to recommend the most relevant content for each learner.

Personalized English Units: Voxy uses state-of-the-art technology to create a personalized curriculum that adapts to each learner’s needs, personal interests and proficiency level. Lessons are dynamically selected for each learner based on their career goals, personal interests and proficiency level. Lessons are based on authentic multimedia resources from publishers such as the Financial Times and Associated Press. Lessons adapt in real time based on how the learner is performing, and each new lesson is chosen based on past performance. The Voxy curriculum engine dynamically builds a personalized English course for each learner by algorithmically choosing from thousands of resources to give learners the lessons they need to improve. Whether a learner needs to speak more confidently in a business presentation or master the vocabulary of a particular industry, their Voxy course will give them level-appropriate English lessons to help them accomplish their specific goals.

Personalized Vocabulary Practice: Voxy’s Word Bank intelligently stores all the vocabulary that learners see in their courses and tracks how well learners understand each word based on performance in their lessons. The Word Bank also breaks vocabulary down by parts of speech, and learners can easily star words they want to revisit. Learners also have the option of searching for words that they know well or need to work on, which allows for highly personalized and focused vocabulary practice. The Voxy curriculum is constantly adapting to meet learners’ unique needs. Lessons automatically adjust based on a learner’s current level and recorded performance across reading, listening, speaking, grammar, and vocabulary skills so that every lesson is optimized for rapid improvement. Lessons and vocabulary are also appropriately repeated and spaced out to facilitate long-term retention.

The Voxy Proficiency Assessment (VPA®): It is an objective and reliable online test that evaluates a test-taker’s current English proficiency level and can be used as a benchmarking tool. Based on research and best practices for language assessment, the VPA® accurately identifies a learner’s English proficiency level. No advanced scheduling required—learners can take the VPA® at any time in the comfort of their own homes or at work. The VPA® is aligned with global standards such as the CEFR and GSE, and can predict results on common tests such as the TOEFL, IELTS, TOEIC and PTE. The VPA® features an optional speaking section that allows learners to submit audio recordings of their responses to oral and written prompts, which are then graded by its certified English assessment specialists. Through a combination of cutting-edge technology and human expertise, the VPA® is convenient to take from home while maintaining the accuracy of an in-person interview.
