Get out of the Ignorance of English!
Student-centered English learning solution
We are well aware of the reality of English education in Korea. We have learned English for decades, but still have fear of speaking English in public.
Isn't there anyway to master English without relying on native speakers?
There is a limit to developing speaking skills only with sounds and books. Eyes and ears have to be used at the same time for forming a longer term memory.
Therefore, the role of video content in watching, listening, and speaking training is significant. While watching videos produced locally on a tablet PC speaking skills improve naturally by keep listening and repeating.

In Korea, as a platform-based low-cost, 'high-efficiency' English learning environment has been established, the leadership for learning is shifting from teaching to coaching, and from teacher-centered to student-centered.
This is the reason why contries which want to learn English fluently but have some limitations of it are paying attention to the English learning method of Korea, not the US or the UK.
Especially in Vietnam, where the education market is growing rapidly, The demand to learn English is growing fast. With higher education fervor than Korea and acceptance of hi-tech, there is little resistance to the IT technology applied learning environment.
Vietnamese middle class students number 20 million. However, there is no reasonably priced, high-quality English program available to them. In that gap, there is an active movement to introduce Korean content and platforms. Not only Vietnam, but also countries in Latin America where Spanish is an official language are paying attention to Korea's English education and learning platforms.
Using Vietnam as a bridgehead, to Asia and even Latin America. It seems that the day when our education fervor and excellent technology change the global education environment is not far away.
