Canadians Bringing English to the World One Internet Connection at a Time
HARBIN, CHINA - When searching for an example of how technology continues to shrink our world and bring people together in unprecedented ways, one need look no further than Exclusive Language, a web-based English language training company. Exclusive Language was founded by two Canadian entrepreneurs who, despite having grown up in the same town of Orleans, Ontario have never met each other in person.
Having collaborated for over a year on a company providing non-native English speakers with online English lessons, Daniel E. Cotton, a Commerce graduate from the University of Guelph, Ontario and Marc Anderson, an Applied Studies graduate from Athabasca University, Alberta founded Exclusive Language. Interestingly, they’ve never met face-to-face. All their communication has occurred over the internet, using web-conferencing technology such as Skype and MSN Messenger. Technology bridges the gap between Cotton who is in Harbin, China and Anderson who is in Seoul, South Korea.
“Honesty, trust and open communication are the cornerstone of our partnership,” said Cotton, currently living in Harbin, China, “and these have become the core values of our business. Integrity is so important in today’s global marketplace. Technology is connecting people and companies who may never have a chance to sit across the table from one another to work things out.”
Exclusive Language offers global companies the unique opportunity to train their employees in the English language. With live, interactive web-based training, organizations are able to bring together their teams scattered around the world into virtual classrooms to upgrade their English communication skills.
“In this day and age, the most successful companies are the ones that embrace new technology in their training programs. Technology that connects workers in remote areas and brings them together in real-time, with little cost,” said Anderson, Chief Executive Officer of Exclusive Language. “It is our role at Exclusive Language to leverage these new technologies and create new mediums for our clients to train their teams in the English language. Live audio and video training with native English instructors conducted over a secure VOIP platform has become the mainstay of our services. We are giving our clients a unique way to upgrade the English skills of their teams without disrupting the daily work flow of the organization.”
“Global communication is necessary at all levels of the organization nowadays. Emails, virtual meetings, conference calls, text messaging- all these technologies are connecting global teams like never before. And English is the language that allows them to use these technologies to communicate and collaborate on projects,” said Cotton, Academic Director for Exclusive Language. “As companies go global, employees face new challenges of needing to be able to communicate in English in relevant business contexts so they can accomplish the organization’s goals. To grow and succeed in the global marketplace, everyone needs to be able to work efficiently in English”
Through Exclusive Language, companies can create customized English training that addresses the language obstacles facing their global teams.
“Online English language training is a growing field around the world and especially in Canada,” according to Anderson. “A large number of recent immigrants desperately need English language training. Companies and government departments are coming to us to help solve this problem and make these new Canadians a better fit, both in the company and in society.” People interested in finding out more information about Exclusive Language can visit their website at www.exclusivelanguage.com.
