The Pedagogical Foundations Of EnglishCentral

By David Deubelbeiss

EnglishCentral is a company that takes pride in having experienced teachers on staff and designing a product that will help students learn and acquire English, particularly for international communication.

Too often technology is designed without the control or voice of educators. Technology for technology's sake. We have tried to avoid this error and build an e-learning platform that puts pedagogy and learning first.

Here are the key aspects of English Central's pedagogy:

1. Motivation.

We live in a visual and digital world. Students consume enormous amounts of video content and video has become the new textbook. EnglishCentral harnesses this built in, intrinsic level of motivation - why not learn English while viewing videos you love? EnglishCentral publishes 30 new video lessons per week and its vast library of video lessons and courses offers every student the chance to study what they want and listen to messages they want to hear.

2. Comprehensible Input

Not only do students need to listen to messages they want to hear - these messages must be level appropriate (Krashen, 2001). Each EnglishCentral video lesson or course plus our vocabulary is leveled and can be assigned to students based on their level of English. This provides appropriate practice maximizing language acquisition.

3. Precise, Timely Feedback

EnglishCentral provides instant feedback to students. Students begin to "notice the gap" (Schmidt, 1990) and begin to self-correct as they compare their speech to the original. Tools are provided so students can "dig down" and understand the language and get the answers they need immediately. EnglishCentral works to promote learner autonomy.

4. Lowered Affective Filter

Many students go through a substantial "silent period" (Krashen, 1985). Others need the time and space given through self-study before they are ready to excel in the very socially demanding classroom. EnglishCentral provides a safe, low anxiety environment where learners can proceed at their own pace and practice speaking in a non-threatening place. Teachers are often amazed how the quiet students in their class "bloom" on EnglishCentral.

5. An Oral Language Focus

The 21st century workplace and global nature of communication demands that students have strong speaking skills. The importance of written communication is receding. EnglishCentral's proprietary speech recognition system IntelliSpeech™ trains students to produce, clear, intelligible speech for effective communication across cultures and borders.

6. Blended Learning

The future of education lies in blended learning (Arne Duncan, 2014). EnglishCentral partners with schools and teachers offering a unique blended learning model and platform. Courses and video lessons can perfectly compliment what students learn in class, providing students with extra practice matching the class curriculum. Our free LMS lets teachers extend the curriculum and track student achievement.

7. Structured Learning

Our simple Watch | Learn | Speak methodology provides low cognitive overload and an easy to follow learning pathway. Courses and video lessons are leveled and vocabulary is presented with spaced-time repetition. EnglishCentral monitors every word or expression students study and provides a simple interface where students can use the feedback to improve their pronunciation and build their vocabulary.

8. Gaming

Students are highly engaged by the gaming dynamics of EnglishCentral. Students compete for XPs (Experience Points) and ranking through their study. However, we don't go overboard and aim to keep the focus on the learning, not the gaming.

9. Ambiguity Tolerance

Language is a vast and unpredictable space. Successful language learners are risk takers. Critical to being a risk taker is having a strong ability to not be stressed out by what you don't understand (Brown, 2007). EnglishCentral provides authentic content that challenges students to focus on the general meaning and gist and strengthen their level of ambiguity tolerance.

David Deubelbeiss is a professor, educational consultant and teacher trainer currently at the Schulich School of Education, Nipissing University, North Bay, Canada. He is a leader in promoting the use of technology in language teaching and the use of social media in education. He is the Director of Education at EnglishCentral. Find him online at his professional development community for teachers, EFL Classroom 2.0 or through his LinkedIn profile. He espouses the simple teaching philosophy of “When one teaches, two learn.”

Tom is a great teacher and communicator. He is responsible and instructive. He also had experience teaching Asian students who have certain specific pronunciation problems. I had five trial classes with Tom but will certainly continue his classes for a long term.

About Karin
Guten Tag,
My name is Karin. I was born and raised in Switzerland. However, Miami is my home now. I love the unique melting pot of Miami. No wonder so many German speaking tourists, investors and patrons are visiting here.

Over more than ten years I have taught numerous people the German language. Some of them only need a little guidance to have a more pleasant traveling experience to Germany. Others keep on coming back to master fluent conversation and writing skills. I'm passionate about tutoring. My goal is to provide an atmosphere that will facilitate an ongoing level of improvement in my students' speaking, writing proficiency. You'll see this by the way I teach. I am flexible with my time and adapt easily to my students' needs. As a first step I get familiar with your expectations. Secondly I recommend an approach that fits you
. Thirdly I want you to have fun and learn in an interactive way.

Bis bald!

Karin is truly the best German instructor ever. The most important thing to me is that Karin helps me feel comfortable and confident in at not only reading and understanding German, but also speaking German. I am encouraged and helped at just the right level so I really know that I am learning how to read, write, and speak German in a German speaking country. But there are so many other things as well. The materials she uses are excellent. I get a copy of all the things she types during out on line learning sessions which helps me really learn and remember the German in the lesson. Karin has also sent me other materials such as useful phrases that I could use in situations in another country such as how to order and pay for food in a restaurant, how to tell the clerk what you want when reserving a hotel room, etc. In addition, I can always email Karin if I have a question or concern and Karin responds very quickly. At first, I was concerned that on-line lessons would not be as effective as a classroom lesson face to face. Karin immediately made me feel comfortable learning on line. Now I feel that I am getting more attention and personal one-on-one help more than I would ever get in a classroom. Karin is a really great German teacher.

I love learning German from Karin. As a "nervous language learner" I really appreciate not only Karin's knowledge of German but her patience. Karin inspires me to practice between lessons. The materials we are using is well chosen and and not only helps learning but also provides quick practice on my own. I look forward to my lessons and feel I am making good progress!

About Yang
I am a native Chinese language speaker and also a current nursing student at College of DuPage. I love volunteering and interpretation for all kinds of people. Here, I'd love to help others to understand the language I usually speak. If I can do some specific subjects, I would like to help students to understand the material for mathematical and psychological statistics, sociology, psychology: Life Spin, Humanities, and Chinese and French history. Actually, I don't have any experience for teaching Chinese Mandarin. However, I have 2-yrs experience for teaching kids art design at my weekend school. I will start to teach humanities class there this year.

About Cynthia Coco
Good greetings!

I have 10+ years of experience in teaching, tutoring, and leading workshops. Currently, I am enjoying managing my own small business while teaching students part time.

I had the wonderful opportunity to work abroad, teaching English, Spanish, photography, and textile design. After a couple years of traveling throughout South America and Europe, I've decided to plop down in Asheville, NC, where I would love to continue teaching.

I am a clothing designer and botanical dyer by trade and also have experience in fine art, performance art, dance, and expressive arts therapy. These are also mediums I would be happy to share.

Learning should be a fun process, so I'm always excited work within each student's interest.

I've taken a few classes from Coco on product photography and lighting. I love how much of the topic we have covered in just these few sessions. Recurring lessons gives me a chance to complete assignments and review them with Coco. They're definitely affordable and informative.

About Danyu
Hi future students, my name is Danyu. I.have a bachelor degree in English and I recently graduated from NYU and had my master degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).

I started my teaching career by volunteering in a educationally undeserved school in Beijing. Until recently, I gained more experiences from teaching in public schools in NYC.

I can be a nerd sometimes but I'm fun and easygoing. I love New York City and I love delivering my knowledge in English language to people in need. I hope you can join me to explore English as a second language and discover NYC so that you are able to overcome difficulties academically and able to be a cool New Yorker.
