Corporate Members of the month

Yabla is a video-based system for online language immersion, around since the summer of 2005. Yabla was the first company to integrate caption-based navigation, dictionary-integrated subtitles, and cloze game activities into TV/video programming. Offering French, Spanish, German, Italian, Chinese (Mandarin), and English (ESL), it serves schools and universities throughout the world. Yabla uses authentic content, in-house productions, and a unique video player to improve students' listening comprehension, vocabulary, and spelling. Every student has their own login, and teachers can assign various activities as homework, create worksheets, set goals, and monitor student performance through a gradebook feature. An ideal tool for remote learning, students can log in from home, from school, or from anywhere with an internet connection. Try it today! 

As a languages teacher, Charlie Foot, Bili’s Founder, felt strongly that students needed to break out of the classroom’s four walls and regularly interact with native speakers to put their language skills to good use. This seemed like the most natural way of helping them improve their skills and take a more active role in their language learning.

He set out to rethink the traditional pen pal exchange to modernise it and make it more accessible for teachers and engaging for young people everywhere. A Bili exchange allows for more regular interaction, helps teachers save time overseeing the messages being sent, and opens the door for students not only to write to each other but also to speak, see, and listen to each other, sharing real information about themselves and giving valuable feedback.
