Press ReleaseGCC residents and employees can now enhance global competitiveness through effective language learning online platforms:
Eton Institute partners with Rosetta Stone to provide its customers with dynamic e-learning solutions.
Dubai, 17th September 2013 – Learning a foreign language does much more than making a travel experience interesting or adding a boost to the resume. It improves the memory, makes an individual smarter and helps improve multitasking as well as decision making skills.
Eton Institute, the UAE’s leading language training centre, has upgraded its e-learning solutions to provide individuals as well as organisations with an online platform for highly effective and scalable language-learning by forming a collaborative partnership with Rosetta Stone, the global leader in online language-learning solutions for businesses, educational institutions and individuals.
Dr. Eli Abi Rached, CEO at Eton Institute, commented, “We are extremely pleased to partner with Rosetta Stone in offering its online learning programme to our students and corporate clients. We strongly believe online learning that can be delivered directly to computers and tablets will become the key training method within the region, enhancing and complementing exciting immersive classroom options at Eton. Rosetta Stone is the most complete online language-learning programme in the world. Our values and approach to language learning are a natural fit.”
Eton Institute has added Rosetta Stone as a technology component for its classroom teaching to create an effective blended-learning environment responding to students’ different learning styles. The partnership will also provide organisations with a wider option to up-skill their employees in order to become more competitive in the marketplace through the online learning platform.
“Research shows that organisations can develop well-rounded employees that can communicate effectively with global partners by acquiring language skills, awareness of business styles and cultural knowledge. The inability to speak the language of colleagues and customers creates communication barriers in a global business environment. Adding language training can minimise these limitations,” explains Donavan Whyte, Vice President of Sales, EMEA Enterprise & Education at Rosetta Stone.
With Rosetta Stone’s solutions, Eton Institute is taking learning to the next level. Students will able to learn anytime and anywhere using internet enabled devices, as well as learning offline through their mobile devices, hence adding value to language learning within the region.
