New stretch target

The growing use of the internet for the delivery of educational and training materials is due to the efficiency of technology today. The increasing popularity of online learning is due to the fact it is information delivered as self-paced training to anyone located anywhere who has a computer and internet access.

I have started the YPE initiative with a capital of £800 obtained from my personal savings. This was used to come up with the website and on purchasing computer equipment.

If I m successful in receiving money from the Crowdfunding project, I will register my project with HMRC as a priority. I will arrange professional support to help me with the difficulty of IT aspects related to further development of my project. I will purchase a high quality computer, camera, green screen, lighting kit, photoshop access, microphone, a variety of language books. I would also like to be able to afford enhancing my videos with professional pictures and music, available for purchases online.

If I receive additional funding, they will remain untouched until income generation begins.

Students will be benefiting from online resources that will help them learn a new language or enhance their current level of proficiency.

Students nowadays have access to an incredible amount of English-language material online. But while this is clearly beneficial, it can also be a bit off-putting. Students don’t always know where to go for the most appropriate material. 

We are in the process of creating and designing our own materials.

We refer to popular, widely used English learning books to ensure all aspects of language study will be covered and practiced. We also ensure of the relevance of content and the ease-of-use of varied language learning resources like books, movies, songs, posts, videos, blogs etc. while focusing on soft skills; communication, collaboration, problem-solving, and other relevant skills irrespective of students' level of proficiency. 

Apart from embedding all these elements into our language training, we also want to give student choices of choosing what they want to learn about and therefore have created a set of lessons that will involve futuristic and interactive technology, depending on the budget.

In addition to creation of the free materials and personalised lessons, we also make recommendations on using and referring to relevant online dictionaries, translators and other innovative help tools that are always available online for general use and will support their learning experience.

What are the different ‘levels’ of learning will we be offering?

Our website www.yespleaseenglish.co.uk  offers a section called The Zone-out room. We wanted to create a space where student can feel comfortable.

The Zone-out room includes activities that help students to keep things in perspective, where students can stop for some learning tips, improve their motivation, beat stress techniques or learn English with Gino Meowchonni.

Our mission is to provide inspiring and empowering learning through having fun.

We want support students in reaching their goals and gaining confidence. We want to specialise in unlocking individual potential at language learning and thinking outside-the-box.

We believe studying should be fun and it is never too late to learn a new language or enhance own language skills.

The materials we are in the process of creating, are being designed in ways that would have been impossible some years ago. Nearly every student now carries a powerful version of a mini-computer, video camera and audio recorder in their pocket which means that technology is the future of learning English as a second language.

The main goal of our online resources is promoting the English language. We believe that our offered materials and lessons will be a solid guarantee of great results.

NOW I NEED YOUR HELP!


If Yes Please English becomes successful, we will arrange professional IT service support to assist us with further development of the project. We will secure a purchase of a high-quality camera, computer, two monitors, green screen, lighting kit, Corell access, headphones, microphone, website and phone maintenance, marketing costs and a variety of language learning books.

Through working side-by-side with teachers, managers and advisors, through my travels, studies and through my work experience I’ve created my own idea of language learning training. My life successes, failures, and detours have provided me with a skill set needed for starting this teaching platform. I started Yes Please English project in  2019 and have been developing it as a hobby since.
