OTTAWA, Canada, Dec. 21, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- TalktoCanada.com, the company trusted by Ernst & Young, Novartis and STC Saudi Telecom for English language training, today announced annual figures reporting strong revenue growth over the last year.
The company credits its success with strong demand for its online English language training in the Middle East, where a good command of English is becoming a primary business requirement. The region has embraced eLearning, and learning English over Skype and WebEx.
"Studying a language in a virtual classroom via WebEx or Skype is a fully acceptable learning platform with students in the Middle East. Students are very receptive to a class conducted over WebEx, which provides full video functionality, a whiteboard and great audio," says Marc Anderson, General Manager of TalktoCanada.com.
There are more people in the Middle East than in the US and Canada combined, making the region one of the world's most cash intense, multi-lingual markets.
Countries such as the UAE, with a population growth rate of 3.69%, have seen a rapid deployment of international businesses and an evolving climate where consumers expect availability of English speaking employees.
"Tourism, food and franchising sectors have grown exponentially. To stay competitive and relevant, corporations have turned to eLearning experts such as TalktoCanada.com to equip their staff with an advanced base of business English," says Anderson.
In its annual review, TalktoCanada also notes that many of its new clients are private students looking to broaden their English skills. "We are committed to be the preferred platform of online English training, regardless if you are a business in need of a tailored class in business English or if you are a student looking to improve your resume for the job market," says Anderson.
