“The Language Network” to revolutionise language learning
Co-founders Siddhi Chokhani, Shubham Pille and Pinnac Yeddy started The Language Network in November 2020 with the foundational idea of revolutionising language learning in India. “When we started TLN, the aim was to provide a comprehensive and affordable learning experience to students. We live in a globalised society and the benefits of being multilingual are immense. All our courses are aligned with CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) and we intend to make language learning interesting and affordable for all” said Siddhi Chokhani, Co-founder & CEO at The Language Network.
The Language Network is an Edtech platform that delivers Live 1:2 and Group Online classes, which aims to provide a personalised and comprehensive learning experience delivered by Indian and native teachers to each student. “We launched in November 2020 landing our first student who was a 70-year-old man from Qatar and our batches were full within a week. We knew the quality we offer was unmatched and we knew we were creating a shift in the language education industry. The day we had our first student signing up with us, a 70-year-old man from Qatar just created endless possibilities for us. We knew it was a global market we could cater to. We could teach a penguin in Antarctica and accept pebbles as a payment (laughs)” said Co-founder Pinnac Yeddy.
The Language Network has courses that adhere to the CEFR standards in French, Spanish, German, Korean, Mandarin, Japanese and English. The founders claim that with their two-way interactive classes, the startup ensures that no more than 7 students are present in a class and tracks the daily progress of the students. They have a unique pedagogical approach and methodology, ensuring maximum retention by the students. The Language Network, at present, have 500+ students currently enrolled for courses and have impacted the lives of more than 1000 students in just 7 months.
“We’re on track to add Portuguese and Russian to the list this month. We are also looking at the possibility of creating a segment to teach regional languages in the coming future, creating a wholesome experience for our students” Co-founder Siddhi Chokhani said.
