Our Vision: Uniting the World, One Conversation at a Time

August 23, 2021

Welcoming Diverse Voices to the Global Stage

English is freakin’ hard. Non-native speakers often have difficulty in understanding casual expressions like this one, because it is unlikely to be found in the dictionary. In fact, everyday casual expressions like awesome, cool, go for it, no worries, oops, give me a ballpark figure and many others, come up frequently on search engines because non-native speakers want to know the meanings and how to use them.

Voice-first English Speaking Practice

New Voice Learning has launched an embarrassment-free, voice-first English speaking practice platform using common expressions which learners can use to confidently speak up in the classroom and at the office. Learners speak to their device to practice automated conversations, express ideas, and expand their everyday English vocabulary. Conversations simulate meetings with clients, advice about presentations, and casual small talk  for building rapport with friends and colleagues. Each lesson is about 4 to 7 minutes.

Our vision: Uniting the World, One Conversation at a Time

New Voice Learning’s mission is to unite people around the world to have meaningful conversations, to confidently express their ideas, and to have their voices heard across cultures.

English: A Tool For Accessing the Global Stage 

It is no wonder why over a billion people are eager to learn English to participate in the global economy.  The majority of the internet content and software development is in English. 19 of the 20 top ranked world universities operate primarily in English. The world’s leading scientific and academic journals are published in English. Vast entertainment media content, such as movies and music, are produced and stored in English. 

People around the world are motivated to learn English to advance academically and professionally. They are pouring over textbooks, listening to podcasts, watching streaming videos with subtitles, and taking online tutoring lessons. While learners can study the fundamentals of grammar, vocabulary, and listening from their home countries, many still lack the opportunity to have daily English speaking practice. This is the critical improvement step needed by millions to work on the global stage. Business managers in Tokyo, Shanghai, Dubai, Singapore, Saint Petersburg, Rio de Janeiro, and New Delhi ( just to name a few ) are acutely aware of the lack of and fierce competition to attract talented, globally capable English speakers. 

Roadmap: Community

The next step in our roadmap is to build a community of learners from around the world. Learners have resoundingly told us that they want to connect with others and that they learn better together. The New Voice Learning community will allow learners to practice their real-life speaking skills through live conversations  and improve by receiving honest feedback. Learners are matched not only by their English ability but also by professional field and personal interests.

We want to help the next generation of …

… researchers from Japan, Russia, and Argentina to talk about climate change and energy solutions.

... scientists from China, Brazil, and Germany to have conversations about flying cars and robots. 

… rugby players from Australia, South Africa, and Mexico to chat and play virtual games together. 

… medical experts from South Korea, Brazil, and the United States to discuss finding new cures and treatments.

... writers from Columbia, Saudi Arabia, and Tahiti to swap stories.

… foodies from Spain, Ghana, and Egypt to share recipes.

We welcome learners to join to improve their English speaking skills and stay for the many meaningful conversations that await them.

Uniting the world, one conversation at a time.
