Finnish Sanako, provider of language teaching solutions in more than 100 countries, has partnered with the Indian educational company Eupheus Learning.

The aim of the collaboration is to improve the English skills of more than a million kids in India through Sanako‘s award-winning Language Lab solution.

Sanako’s Language Lab makes use of technology to provide meaningful activities that can keep a whole class actively engaged in language exercises in a time-efficient manner. Predefined workflows combine speaking, listening and written text, while the Language Lab also comes with interactive preset activities such as listening comprehension, model imitation, reading practice, round table discussion, discussion, exam mode, tutoring, vocabulary test, text-to-speech and video pairing.

“India has the second largest population that speaks English but unfortunately their pronunciation and diction is not up to the mark,” says Vivek Gupta, head of Sanako India. “With Eupheus Learning as our partner, we aim to reach out to as many kids at an early age of learning and provide them with language learning solutions that will help them not only build clear diction and pronunciation but also improve vocabulary, build grammar, and confidence in themselves.”

Sanako has specialised in language labs for more than 50 years under different names and ownership.
