Solving Two Problems At Once:
Integrating English Language Instruction And
Skills-Based Training For Immigrant Workers
The iEnglish Project: Digital Language Literacy for the Immigrant Worker
Moving Away From one-size fits-all makes learning faster: We have a huge, untapped talent pool limited only by English proficiency. Removing English as a barrier to immigrant workforce integration through integration language instruction and skills-based training is backed by years of empirical research. Technology allows for personalization at scale, driving efficiency and outcomes.
