A University here in Taiwan and it’s newly formed Language Center wants to purchase some ESL software so that it can set up a self-directed learning environment for it’s students.
The whole program -and there are loads of other initiatives- is being aimed at improving the level of English proficiancy for non-English-majors throughout the university.
Besides all of the TOFL and TOEIC and GEPT software out there (developed both inside and outside of Taiwan) I’m hoping folks can recommend some good ESL learning software that might be available.
It can be stand-alone software like: Rosetta Stone (although thats very basic)
Or it can be subscription based software whereby the school will purchase licences for use by the students. An example of this might be something like ‘Criterion’ whereby students submit essays which are then critiqued and corrected by an AI program and then sent back to the student.
The center is looking for software that can help students with:
The budget is not so much of an issue. There are tens of thousands of NT available. Specific funds have been allocated for this program so any money being spent is not taking away from other initiatives (i.e. hiring tutors for students etc…)
Any recommendation would be really swell.
Thanks in advance,
