A Revolutionary New Program is Giving Indonesians the Chance to Learn English from Native Speakers


English First, the world’s largest private education company specializing in English training, has already helped 15 million students with its innovative e-learning program called Englishtown. So far, the majority of these students have been from Brazil, Russia, China, Germany, France and Spain, but now Indonesians are able to benefit from the service too. Englishtown's launch in Indonesia builds on an already strong network of 63 English First schools serving kids and teens across the country.

Jakarta, Indonesia, May 18, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Offered online, Englishtown gives busy students the opportunity to learn English wherever there’s an internet connection. Conversation classes take place day and night, and at the simple touch of a button students can start chatting with a native-speaking teacher. In fact all of Englishtown’s rich, easy-to-navigate content is available around the clock – from online progress reports to Hollywood-quality training videos.

At the heart of the learning experience are Englishtown’s immersive conversation classes, where groups of four or five students, overseen by a certified teacher, meet online and speak English together. In addition to these sessions, there are carefully crafted, self-guided courses that focus on important skills like reading, writing, listening and grammar. Those who want to learn even faster can sign up for private, one-to-one sessions with a personal tutor.

"With more than 15 years of experience, Englishtown is ready to provide the best online service for teaching English in Indonesia," said Elliot Davernas, country manager of Englishtown Indonesia. "Every hour there's a new class starting and students are free to join groups that match their own language ability."

English First has invested US $70m in the research and development of Englishtown so that students can learn English quickly, confidently and with the minimum of fuss. The teaching method has won several prestigious awards, and is currently used by some of the world’s most powerful companies, including Microsoft, Google and BMW. Englishtown was the Official Provider of English Language Training at the Beijing Olympics in 2008, training more than 60,000 volunteers, and it has already been selected for use in 2014, both at the Sochi Winter Olympics and the soccer World Cup in Brazil.

The best thing about Englishtown’s launch in Indonesia is the remarkably low cost. For a limited time only, students can sign up for a year’s access to the service for just Rp.11.8 million (standard price Rp.14.8 million). More information can be found online at englishtown.co.id.
