SpeakingPal is an Israeli EdTech company that focuses on the field of spoken English. Our vision is to promote English as a main means of connecting people in the age of globalization. We focus on the skill of speaking, as it is the leading and natural skill necessary for connecting with people.
The company has developed a video-based dialog simulator powered by speech recognition which provides a natural user- experience when speaking with another person. The need to analyze the conversation is integrated using unique speech recognition technology, with which the user receives real-time feedback and suggestions for improvement. The virtual experience is similar to having a conversation with a human being, similar to a Zoom call. Learning by simulating a conversation with a person, highlights the importance of the social and emotional connection that is part of communication and language. It builds confidence both in speaking English and in conducting a conversation in general.
This approach, and the unique technology at its core, have helped the company win many international awards. The company’s clients include education ministries, educational organizations, commercial companies and private individuals.
For the Challenges’ pilots, social emotional content will be added to the product, to enable learning and practicing skills related to this domain. Exercises in pairs and groups will connect between the virtual and the real world. In addition, a visual control panel will allow teachers to be updated on personal progress, lead the learning process, and provide human and personal attention when required.
