Contract with Gloucester Language Immersion Centre

 

The Board of Intellego, the AIM listed digital learning business, is delighted to announce that its subsidiary PIXELearning Ltd ("Pixel") has signed a contract for £167,000 to provide products to the Gloucester Language Immersion Centre ("GLIC") and moves into the rapidly growing online language market.

 

GLIC is a unique purpose built centre created specifically to teach languages through a "full immersion" technique, whereby pupils behave as though they are in a foreign country. The main target audiences for the centre are the local community, SME businesses and students between the ages of 14 - 19.

 

Pixel, a serious game specialist, will build a flagship immersive "serious game" for GLIC to teach new languages to its students. The initial roll-out will be for four languages; French, Spanish, Chinese and Russia, but it plans to expand its offering to 11 languages, including rarely taught languages, such as Pashtu and Urdu.

 

Pixel will be working in partnership with the Serious Games Institute ("SGI"), a world leading pioneer and innovator in the field of serious games and language training, which operates out of Coventry University's Technology Park.  

 

Andy Hasoon, CEO of Intellego said, "With hundreds of millions of people across the globe learning new languages at any one time this is a very exciting and a whole new market for Intellego to focus on. Importantly, serious games are the ideal tool to help people quickly grasp and retain a new language. The work being undertaken by GLIC cannot be underestimated and we are very pleased to be working closely alongside them."

 

Tim Luft, Operations Director, of the Serious Games Institute, commented, "These new and highly effective training techniques provide a fundamental change to traditional teaching methods and are very well suited to learning a new language. All our courses are fully engaging and deeply interactive, allowing the student to remember more facts for a longer period of time. Working alongside an expert developer like Intellego adds a greater level of confidence in the success of the GLIC."
