Be ahead of that Forgetting Curve

We forget 75% of everything we learn within one month of learning it. This has been called the ‘forgetting curve’, but there is a way of flattening out the curve and preventing such precipitous loss of learning. The key is regular, repetitious revision of the learning…

International Awards, Dictionary & more

Dear friends and partners of LearnMatch!

If you have updated your LearnMatch App in the past few weeks, you will already have noticed the exciting recent changes: LearnMatch has been revised to incorporate a light and extremely modern design.

What you may not have noticed immediately are the developments made underneath the surface: A lot of new features, the new onboarding process, the integration of a regular prize competition and new exercise types round off the all-improved app. And last, but by no means least, the introduction of thenew dictionary: revolutionising LearnMatch and bringing the app into a whole new dimension of vocabulary training.

This multilingual reference dictionary has an extensive vocabulary, offering users the opportunity to translate words via LearnMatch by simply clicking on them online or in e-mails and/or storing vocabulary in the so-called Personal Dictionary. This enables users to identify, store and train with tricky words as regularly as necessary. An absolute innovation – and an incredibly valuable feature for users with advanced language skills.

News from Vision Education – December 2017

 

Dear friends & partners,

the last couple of months have been undoubtedly eventful for us and our team. We have successfully launched two amazing apps: LearnMatch and LearnMatch-Business/phase6 Berufe. In addition, we were able to find important sponsors in the DACH region, who are providing us with excellent support by spreading LearnMatch amongst different groups of users. These include T-Mobile, Erste Bank, H2 Sprachreisen, C-Quadrat, Bildungsverlag Lemberger, our German media partner Kicker, with more than 9 million digital usersand many more.
These successful partnerships allow us to offer LearnMatch free of charge in the App-Stores in many countries at least until July 2018 – as long as the users choose their preferred sponsor for the app.

 

 

Furthermore, we were able to win innovative and active partners also for the LearnMatch Business app: the international nursing care companies Linara/Hausengel and the organisation of Viennese facility management companies. The two existing versions of the LearnMatch Business app – for the nursing care sector and facility cleaning service providers – as well as LearnMatch will play a vital role in our international sales activities in 2018.

We are particularly pleased to announce the start of a successful cooperation with two international NGOs, which are unique role models in many different countries: Pro Mujer and Jugend Eine Welt. In a relatively short period of time, we have thus achieved our ambitious international goal and created a great starting point for further significant global partnerships.

We can proudly look back on what we have achieved until now. Therefore, we would also like to express our warmest thank you to all of the people who have accompanied us on this journey so far and will continue to do so in the future.

Together we can really make a tremendous difference!

 

We wish you and your beloved ones a wonderful holiday season and a successful start into the new year. We are looking forward to receiving active feedback from our friends and partners also in the future.

With our kindest regards,

the Vision Education Team
