I want to develop an app for Software Developers to become fluent in English, so they can work in international projects.
I taught English for over 10 years to people of different ages and backgrounds before starting my IT Consulting career 18 years ago. It was my English speaking skills which got my foot in the door, though I definitely had to develop other talents in software engineering to be as succesful as I am today.
Over the years, some of the most common questions I’ve been asked (Besides “Where do you get your great looks?”) have been “How come you speak English so well?”, or “Will you teach me?”. And so I have over the years mentored people to speak English much more fluently. However, there’s a limit to the time I can spend in such rewarding activity.
So my next step is to develop a web application (to later create the mobile version) which empowers people to become more fluent in English, by focusing on the most common phrases and vocabulary in the software engineering field. Specialized English Language professionals will create high quality content consisting on prerecorded lessons, and eventually, in a later phase, private or group conversation clubs. Think of it as a gym for your mind.
