Advantages Digital Learning Solutions and Language Tree Online Partner to Deliver Standards-Based English Language Development Solutions to Secondary International English Learners
Partnership brings standards-aligned English language development digital curriculum to Advantages Accredited K-12 Schools and their partners everywhere.
Reno, NV – December 12, 2022 – Advantages Digital Learning Solutions, the leading K-12 education management solution, announced today a distribution and integration partnership with Language Tree Online, the leader in digital English language development (ELD) solutions for secondary school students.
The challenge for many overseas students studying English is the lack of quality digital tools that addresses all four domains of English learning – reading, writing, speaking, and listening comprehension. Furthermore, available instructional resources don’t align to established standards used by U.S. schools to determine English language proficiency and readiness for higher-level English language arts classes.
As a result, students learning English outside of the U.S. school system, may lack the foundational literacy and language skills needed to attain full proficiency — even after many years of study. This can hold back students who wish to study or work in an English-speaking country.
“This partnership enables students in K-12 schools around the world to access the same rigorous English language development resources used by the largest school districts in the United States”, said Ana Leung, Co-Founder and Head of Strategy for Language Tree Online.
“Our program has helped tens of thousands of English learners in secondary schools across America vastly improve their level of English proficiency. We strongly believe that an appropriately leveled program that is firmly rooted in the standards, like the one we offer, accelerates language acquisition, and sets up students for academic success. We are excited to work with Advantages DLS to bring our program to new markets overseas and domestically.”
Pam Dion, CEO and Co-Founder of ADVANTAGES-DLS states that “Our partnership with Language Tree Online supports our vision in providing “Best in Class” content solutions to our users. With this newly integrated catalog, we can now offer our students and school partners, the most up-to-date English language learning solutions available with seamless user experiences. We are thrilled with this addition to our academic platform as we can finally fulfill the needs of our student population that want efficient English acquisition courses.”
