With OCTB High School Students across the world teaching each other their native language

1x1

Teach & Learn

Once a week your students teach English to the students from another country and in return they learn a foreign language from these students during a second session that same week 

Why it works

IMMERSION, VISUALIZATION & PERSONALIZED CONTENT

ONE-ON-ONE INTERACTION

You can't learn how to speak without actually speaking. By matching you with your peers across the world we create this interaction through free video conferencing without any travel expenses.

SEEING IS BELIEVING

What can be more personalized material than working with your own mistakes? As you understand those mistakes and avoid repeating them in the future, something magical happens: your confidence goes through the roof!

PERSONALIZED HOMEWORK

You no longer study material that is completely impersonal to you. This way you zero in on things that you personally need to improve. The graphs will show how quickly each student will progress using this approach.

Unsure if a high school student can teach his/her native language?

All they have to do is

Type

what the learner says during the conversation into our platform

Correct

the text explaining what they would have said instead as a native speaker

Our Platform & AI

When students correct each other, these corrections are analyzed by our artificial intelligence which then prompts the instructor to give the grammatical explanation.

Powerful Tracking Tools

LEARNERS, PARENTS, AND TEACHERS HAVE IMMEDIATE
ACCESS TO LEARNERS' PERFORMANCE REPORTS

All you have to do is

DRILL DOWN INTO THE CONTENT

OF EACH LESSON

If the graphs don't show expected results or for any other reason, the content of each lesson can be reviewed by diving down into each lesson file. There is absolutely zero room for slacking.

LESSON-BY-LESSON PERFORMANCE GRAPHS

Our tracking tools provide a clear picture of the learner's progress by measuring how fast the learner is speaking in each class and their error percentage on a lesson-by-lesson basis.

What people are saying...

With OCTB, my students are talking in Spanish during 50 minutes straight, which is something that's otherwise impossible

Captain Ryan Raycraft - Spanish Teacher,
Fishburne Military School

I've really enjoyed seeing the students interact. Obviously I would love for all of my classes to participate

Carmen Wirtz - College Counseling,

Antigua International School

If this was my primary source of learning a foreign language, it would provide everything that I need

Step 4

Step 5

Step 3

Assignment

Step 6

Foreign language should be practiced with peers

  • One-to-Many Classroom Setting does NOT work in Language Acquisition, One-on-One interaction is Key to becoming fluent, yet TOO expensive

  • Facilitating one-on-one interaction between students who are native speakers in different languages enables this interaction

Supporting Data

How can we be sure that this will actually work? Because it's already happening! Check out the student and teacher testimonials in the top menu to hear from them how they've integrated the OCTB platform in their language classes, and how students and teachers alike have benefited from this. 

Plus, we have supporting data from every lesson of every student that has ever taken a class using our approach.

 
We just need a bit of info...
