Why it works

Communicate works by giving learners control of the language that they need the most.


Research shows that 80% of communication in English comes from just 20% of the language.

For example, if you knew just 350 words, you would understand over 75% of an entire college course.

Communicate ensures that learners understand the core language that has the greatest impact on their understanding of their course or job. 

This technique of helping learners conquer high-value language has been applied to all communication types; reading, writing, speaking and listening, and wrapped up into a single intervention toolkit.


The software helps break down all the teaching into manageable chunks and helps them learn it in an interactive and engaging way. Learners work at their own pace and towards their own goals.

To make the most of the time available, learners only work on the solutions that have been identified as essential. No matter how much they cover, a learner will experience a powerful sense of progression, a boost in confidence and a new-found pride in their own abilities.
