In a recent survey by the Pew Hispanic Center, 58% of Latinos reported that limited English skills were a major reason why they don’t do as well in school as other students. To help members of the Hispanic community’s ability to further develop the skills they need to write proficiently in English, Vantage Learning has introduced a Spanish version of CorrectEnglish.
“CorrectEnglish is a powerful tool to help people who want to significantly improve the quality of their English,” says Elena Cupingood, who spearheads the CorrectEnglish platform at Vantage Learning. “CorrectEnglish not only provides feedback on English grammar, it also evaluates the quality of English writing across four domains–organization, focus, content and style. Users can also share documents with others, either for group writing assignments or for peer feedback.”
The new Spanish version includes:
instant grammar and writing evaluation;
cross-lingual grammar feedback in Spanish;
access to documents wherever there’s an Internet connection – no installation needed; and
free automatic content and feature updates so users always have the latest version of the product.
“This is a powerful tool designed to help English language learners to excel at writing in English,” Cupingood goes on to say. “Writing is a skill that is in high demand in business and higher education, yet only 18% of Hispanic students reached proficiency on the 2007 National Assessment of Education Progress. Whether one is a student who is still acquiring English or a member of the workforce looking to advance in a career, the ability to write well in English can increase the potential to enter college, optimize career choices, and enhance earning potential.”
