OTTAWA, Ontario, April 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TalktoCanada, the company trusted by Ernst & Young, Novartis and Saudi Telecom for English language training, today announced the launch of a Facebook page in Spanish.
The company joined Facebook in 2010 in an effort to communicate with students more effectively and create an environment that was both fun and educational. Language-curious students have been coming to the English page since, picking up close to 1,000 active fans.
"With nearly one billion members on Social Networks, students are using technology to exchange information and engage with teachers in new ways. The social revolution is helping TalktoCanada reach out to new and existing students around the globe and allowing us to share helpful and useful information with them more frequently," says Marc Anderson, Managing Director of TalktoCanada.
Experts agree that Social Media is helping redefine teacher and student relationships. Companies such as TalktoCanada are using Facebook and other social networking platforms to quickly distribute training tools and build stronger bonds.
"Over a very short time period, Facebook has become a virtual hang-out for TalktoCanada and its students. Both old and new students use our wall to learn from each other and exchange ideas and experiences. For instance, students are picking up idioms and slang that can be useful when learning everyday English," says Marc Anderson.
Following the success of TalktoCanada on Facebook, the company will introduce new pages for Russian, Portuguese, Japanese and Arabic in the near future.
TalktoCanada was founded in 2006 and credits its success in online English language training to the global acceptance of communication tools such as Skype and WebEx.
