Immersive Online Platform
Created by media and video game specialists in collaboration with teachers and researchers in neuroscience, Entertainment Learning disrupts language learning with pedagogy that is both fun and effective.
Our learning units combine video and games for an immersive and engaging experience designed for short, frequent sessions.
Entertainment Learning has three language-learning services that together are used by over a million learners.
Why Lingua Attack ?
Innovation and effectiveness in language learning
Lingua Attack is a multi-platform solution to the problems most frequently encountered in learning a foreign language.
6 learning languages and 26 user interface languages
Lingua Attack is a world-class language-learning platform with a constantly growing number of available learning languages.
A responsive-design website and mobile applications
Lingua Attack is a website and a mobile application. User accounts are synchronised between the two platforms, with learners using the same log-in for the website or application and accessing the same set of personal learning data.
Presentation of the plateform
The Learning Units
A large and growing catalogue of exercises based on authentic videos
- Video Boosters enable the learning of languages as they are actually spoken, through video exercises based on clips from films and television series, music videos, TV news reports and documentaries.
- There are over 1,300 Video Boosters for the learning of English, and over 200 for each of the other learning languages.
- New Video Boosters, in line with the latest film releases, news items and cultural events, are published several times a week.
Immersive, multi-step exercises
Video Boosters enable immersive language learning, with contextualised vocabulary and a focal grammar point. The activity encompasses several language skills: listening, reading, vocabulary and grammar.
Each unit is based on a short (one to three minutes) video clip. On average, a learner can complete the eight steps that constitute a Video Booster in about 15 minutes.
Over 250 thematic visual dictionaries
Strengthening vocabulary is essential in learning a foreign language. A Photo Vocab is an interactive visual dictionary comprising 16 vocabulary items, designed to turn the acquisition of new vocabulary into an effective and fun experience.
There are more than 250 thematic Photo Vocabs, ie more than 4,000 expressions and words per learning language.
- Learners and tutors can search the Photo Vocabs database for vocabulary items either in the learning language or in the chosen user interface language.
- An Essentials section brings together the basic vocabulary that every learner must master.
Gamified exercises for optimum retention
Each Photo Vocab is organised into two albums of eight expressions each that the learner practices with a series of exercises and games.
All the dimensions of the vocabulary are thus practiced, in different formats, thus creating neural connections resulting in optimised long-term retention of the lexical items.
33 video exercises for everyday and workplace situations
With exercises based on pedagogical videos, Skill Boosters familiarise the learner with the most common language situations of everyday and professional life.
Exercises capped by a skills assessment
By replaying sections of the video and repeatedly listening to the corresponding dialogue throughout the Skill Booster, the learner gradually becomes familiar with the language elements specific to a situation and integrates them into his or her linguistic reflexes.
The seven steps of a Skill Booster are concluded by an assessment.
A 20-episode animated series designed for beginners
Starter Labs are learning units designed specifically for beginners in a language.
Presented as an animated series, each episode addresses a specific theme in a minimalist visual style for greater focus on the target language.
Simple language elements with translation
Starter Labs introduce core vocabulary and simple grammatical forms that can be understood by beginners in a language. At the end of each episode, the most important spoken sentences appear on the screen for easy memorisation and oral / written association.
In order to facilitate the understanding of the dialogues, and to create the essential linguistic connections, Starter Labs use translation more extensively than the other types of learning units on Lingua Attack.
A Starter Lab consists of six steps:
Learning experience and progress tracking
The Learner experience
Coaching that encourages discovery learning
Designed for autonomous learning as well as for tutor-led learning, Lingua Attack guides the learner on a non-linear journey that promotes discovery via adapted content recommendations.
Level assessment tests
Adaptive tests for regular assessment of language skills
Designed and developed in collaboration with specialists in the assessment of language skills, the Lingua Attack level assessment tests evaluate the language skills of the learner in less than 20 minutes. The test positions the learner on the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) skills scale: from level A1 to C2.
Learners can find the results of their tests in their personal space, and print or download a certificate confirming their evaluated skill level?
The official tests presented on Lingua Attack:
TOEIC, Bulats, Bright English, Bright German, Bright Spanish, Bright Portuguese, HSK1 for Chinese and TCF for French.
The Learner zone
Personalised dashboards for progression tracking
On Lingua Attack, learners can access a detailed history of their learning activity and, if they are associated with specific classes in tutoring mode, their homework assignments and related scores.
Translation and Pronunciation
A helpful tool available for all activities
On Lingua Attack, learners select their translation language from a choice of 26 languages.
The translation language may be different from that of the interface language (a learner can thus learn English with a user interface also in English, but with translations into Spanish)
Help, User Guide and notifications
Regular re-engagement of the learner
A complete system of messages and notifications assist and guide learners in their use of the platform.
Tutoring mode (optional)
Optional tutoring mode
A hybrid pedagogical approach combining autonomous and guided learning
Tutoring features can be activated optionally, enabling Lingua Attack to be used in conjunction with the preferred methods and approaches used by each teacher or trainer with his or her learners. It’s up to the teacher / trainer to use the tutoring functions as much as needed or desired.
A complete range of functionalities developed together with teachers and trainers
If the tutoring mode is activated on the platform, teachers or trainers will find the tutor functions in the My classes section.
Deploying Lingua Attack
License distribution adapted to all types of organisations
