Sanako Connect

A blended learning system taking MFL and interpreting teaching beyond the classroom and online

An on-line cloud-based system for remote language learning, Sanako Connect delivers an inclusive system which facilitates language acquisition whether in class, at home or on the move as part of your  Sanako blended learning language centre when combined with the popular Sanako Study Range. It can be used for Languages teaching, Conference Interpreting including remote simultaneous and consecutive assessments and many other activities.

Sanako Connect will work on PCs, laptops using Google Chrome, Chromebooks and tablets, and can be used as a module to enhance the popular Sanako Study  range of language labs, or employed as an independent system for distance teaching only.

Students attend class as normal for a tutor led sessions in the language lab with all the advanced features they have using their Study 1200/700system.  In blended learning mode the teacher can then save follow up work to the cloud via a secure system to allow students to complete the exercises at home, and automatically return them to the tutor. Additionally, when combined with the Study Range of language labs, native speaking students from partner school could be invited to join a role play session with UK students for a true life experience.
