Experiences Surge of Growth in Latin America for Its Online English Language Services

OTTAWA, Ontario, July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- After years of progressively increasing its market share of Latin American students, TalktoCanada sees tremendous growth potential for students from all over Central and South America. Based on an ever-increasing enrollment for live English training over the last few years, TalktoCanada believes this trend will continue as students from countries such as Brazil, Argentina, Mexico and Chile look to improve their English skills.

Students from Latin America come from all sectors of commerce and industry, including financial, medical, sales and engineering. Demand has been steadily increasing and all levels in an organization from the Chief Executive Officer down to the new employee are realizing the importance of English not only in their working lives, but also in their day-to-day lives. This is why so many of them have signed up for online English lessons with TalktoCanada.

TalktoCanada caters to each language learner's needs; pharmaceutical consultants, marketing managers, and university students are all able to improve and reach their English speaking goals through customized lessons that work on their specific difficulties when using English. All lessons are taught with a live teacher using WebEx, Skype or the telephone.

When the typical Latin American student was asked during their first lesson why they wanted to study English, the most common response has been, "to get ahead in business and in life - I need it." Brazil, specifically Sao Paulo, is quickly becoming an international hub for multinational corporations that require their employees to communicate in English to their branch offices around the world.

"Brazilian students are generally friendly and easy-going - and they are motivated to learn," Says Jillian Zavitz, Programs Manager for TalktoCanada. "They select us because Canadians have a clear and very understandable English accent which makes it easier for the student to pick up on the proper pronunciation of different words and sounds."

Many of TalktoCanada's Latin American students prep and prepare for the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) with a teacher. Achieving a high band score in these tests is very difficult, but also essential to those who want to make a life in Canada. "Students sign up for our IELTS intensive course that prepares them for every type of question that could come up in the speaking section. We help them feel confident with their answers and encourage them to use more complex vocabulary in order to achieve the necessary results they are looking for," says Bartley, TalktoCanada's specialized IELTS trainer.  

The company is now looking ahead to the future and knows that Latin American students will play a huge role in achieving TalktoCanada's success.
