An Israeli software company which has developed software that can teach English to non-speakers in around 15 hours has signed a deal to supply the Malaysian Ministry of Education.
EasyReader, which has been offering language software since 1996 is based at the Granot Initiative Centre and its popular Fonty package teaches over 600 words.
Students hear the words and phrases and can then speak back to Fonty to confirm their understanding. Other interactive features include learning how to write letters.
Originally, Fonty was aimed at schools and educational professionals, but now it is available for purchase for home use at $80 which can supplement English teaching at school.
