The web-based language learning service WordDive has grown in popularity around the world. As the year approaches its end, the service has attracted new users at the rate of several thousands each day and it is used in more than 70 countries.
Growth is particularly rapid at the moment in Britain, Chile, the Philippines and Indonesia. There are lots of users in the USA, Mexico, Columbia, Spain and Estonia as well.
WordDive is the world’s only web-based language learning service that personally tailors the exercises for the individual user. The program identifies the areas where the user needs more practice and the exercises automatically become increasingly demand as the user’s competence improves. The service uses plenty of images as well as the mental pictures these conjure up assist the learning process. The service can be used on any computer platform without any installation.
— At present the service is being used as an adjunct to other teaching methods in more than one hundred educational institutions, though mainly in Finland, explains WordDive’s CEO Timo-Pekka Leinonen.
WordDive was named top electronic teaching aid in Finland in 2011. International patents for the implementation have been applied for.
