A unique, patent-pending*, learning experience. The product develops all English language skills (speaking, listening, reading, writing, vocabulary and grammar) through an engaging story of real-life situations that revolve around the learner's interactions with other characters living in the virtual world of Velawoods™.

Supported by complex analytics, continuous feedback is provided throughout the learning experience. State-of-the-art speech analysis and artificial intelligence technologies, powered by Carnegie Speech, provide detailed feedback on pronunciation. Learners have access to a fully interactive feedback report at all times and a Certificate of Completion is provided at the end of each course and level that is successfully finished.

Cambridge University Press and Cambridge English Language Assessment worked closely with us to define the underlying pedagogy and learning approach for this innovative product.
