Basic Information

The ability to communicate fluently in English unlocks academic & career opportunities and has the power to change lives. Alarmingly, about 250 million students in private affordable schools in India have little or no access to teachers who are proficient in English. This leads to a sad spiral of poor comprehension, weak foundational concepts, low grades, dropouts, and a vicious cycle of unrealised potential and economic crises (at the family, societal, and national levels). There is no turning back from here. The scalable and sustainable solution retains the teacher at the core of the interventions and provides pedagogically-based communicative English proficiency programmes that are engaging, accessible and affordable. This is exactly what Learning Matters does. Tara has proved that voice technology combined with pedagogically-strong curriculum can indeed work wonders to improve English proficiency in both teachers and students. See more
