In the past, English Language Learning (ELL) teaching methods in China have been traditional and inefficient. Most teachers rely on Grammar Translation, drill and kill, and teaching for test preparation as opposed to focusing on skill production and utilizing more communicative activities. This is frustrating for children who become disinterested in learning English. Teachers lack the training and tools to conduct effective and engaging classes. Teachers must create their own materials and spend a large amount of time outside of class grading homework and communicating with parents. Parents may think their children's short-term test prep needs are met, but they feel communicative competence and other skills production are being shortchanged. Parents also feel a disconnect from what takes place in the classroom and don't understand how their students are performing.
ALO7 makes classes fun and exciting for children and teachers. The materials are presented in a meaningful way alongside activities that promote interactivity between children through competitions and games. Teachers have access to a wealth of resources to make their classes rich and memorable. Our courseware allows students to be rewarded at home for individual and team performance in class. The exercises and tasks students complete online on ALO7.com or ALO7 apps are marked automatically and the data is shared with teachers and parents, providing a clear picture of each learner's progression through the content. Teachers also can use Ai Xiao Tong (AXT) to record pictures and audio files, write learning goals, and create class and individual feedback for the parents.
ALO7 grew out of Saybot Information Technology, Ltd., founded in Boston in 2004 by the digital pioneer, Prof. Nicholas Negroponte, the inventor of e-mail, Prof. Leonard Kleinrock, and several venture capital companies.
ALO7 is the largest digital ELT (English Language Teaching) product and solutions provider in China with more than 10M registered users and more than 2,000 training school partners. We are revolutionizing the way English is learned and taught throughout China, from how schools are managed to how schools and homes are connected in the mobile Internet age.
