This partnership will further transform the language learning marketplace, empowering and engaging anyone across the globe who wants to learn English.
Shirish Nadkarni, CEO of Livemocha
This is an idea I already had a couple of month ago. It’s nice to see that two global leaders in language education came to the same results.
Connecting the decent and profund knowledge of a company like Pearson with the drive and the innovation of a start-up like Livemocha is really a milestone to me. Livemocha sets a new standard with this partnership for the entire online education market. That’s for sure.
By joining forces with an industry leader like Livemocha, were able to address a broader range of language learners beyond the institutional markets we traditionally serve.
Bill Anderson, President, Global ELT, Pearson Education
Myngle.com is currently working on their own branded language courses, too. But there is nothing known of the content and quality yet. So it seems there is something like a trend of online education platforms forming partnerships with content providers.
Connecting the two markets, online and offline, shows that established companies like Pearson take the online education market more and more serious. This is great news for us and I am really curious about the effects this announcement will have.
